Follow Friday #10 – Despised Genres

Friday, January 27, 2017
This is a Friday meme now hosted by Patricia of FiktiveWelten. Every week she asks a question that you can answer. Everyone who would like to participate, just answer her question, link to her blog and write a comment under her post to let the others know that you are participating. The entire rules you can find here.

I haven´t done this in a while, since not every question was one I had an answer for. And for some questions, I had already planned my own post.

But this week I found something I was typing spontaneously and so here is what I have to say about the despised genres.

I actually have only one. Others I read only occasionally.

If I had to give it a name I would call myself a genre omnivore.

But not entirely; you won´t find me reading in the horror area and if a romance novel becomes way to kitschy and the pages start to drip of too much sugar sweet stuff, I am out.

There are so many good books out there, so many different writing styles and so many great authors that I just can´t make myself to read only one particular genre. I read whatever catches my interest and where I feel some connection when I look at the cover and then read the summary of it.

How is it about you?

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.


  1. Haha, great - I love the genre "Omnivore" ;o)

    1. That word really exists. Kind of means I am "eating everything" :-)
