Wendi's Question this week is:
Do you have a specialized blog where you only review a certain genre or type of book? If so, what is your favorite thing about that type of book? If not, what is/are your favorite genre(s)? What makes that genre(s) a favorite?
Hmm...the title of my blog is "This That and the Other Thing". Does that sound specialized? Actually book blogging is something I sort of fell into. I've had the blog for a long time, but post were few and far between, since I couldn't think of anything about which to write. Then I started reviewing a few of the books I read, kind of as a take-off for expressing my opinon about someting, or just to have something to say. Next, I became part of First Wildcard and started reading more and more book blogs. I started reviewing more and more books, and taking part in more and more things like this. Oh, I'm supposed to be writing about genres, right? I guess I like what is generally referred to as "women's fiction", stories about women, usually written for and by women. I like them to have happy endings and strong women characters. I read a lot of Christian fiction because it is sent to me--but I read some even before I started reviewing to get books. I don't like blood and guts and I don't like books that are hard to read. I want to be smiling at the end of the book, not crying.
Stop by Wendi's blog and see what other folks have to say.
