Tuesday Talks | Favorite Genres and Putting Others Down

You can find the goodreads group for Tuesday Talks here. If you want to participate, that would be awesome. :)

What's Your Favorite Genre and do You Put Others Down?
The topic for today is all about what your favorite genre is and if you put down other genres because they aren't your favorite. Personally, I love fantasy the most. It doesn't matter if it was written for adults, young adults, children, whatever. If it's a good fantasy story that can pull me in, I'm there.

Having said this, I read many genres. In fact, I wouldn't even say that fantasy is my most widely read genre. Fantasy is the genre that makes me love reading the most, but there are so many other genres that I read and love too.

As far as putting a genre down goes, I don't think I do this. There are some that aren't my favorites, but I know many people who read these genres and enjoy them immensely. Not every book is for every person. We also change so much in life that we will most likely find ourselves enjoying genres we never expected to like. I know I have come to love many novels that I never would have expected to like ten years ago. Life experiences changes our outlook on many things, literature included. So to put something down just makes no sense. Someday it may be your favorite. And even if it's not, there are so many other people out there who enjoy it. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you should steer other people away from it.

There are my jumbled thoughts on this weeks topic. Connect with me:

Until next time.
