Follow Friday - What's Your Favorite Genre?

Q. Genre Wars! What’s your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

A. This one is a tough question! I read just about any genre that falls into my hands, but I’ve had the most enduring relationship with romances. Some of my favorite romance titles have been on my shelves for 20 years or more. Among romance novels, I love the ones with paranormal, time travel, or historical elements the most. Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber was the book that sealed the deal.

Why not Outlander? After all, it’s the first book in the series, while Dragonfly is the second. I saw Dragonfly in Amber on the shelf of my local library when it was first released, read the back, and quickly checked it out, not knowing that it was part of a series. I figured that out pretty quickly after I started reading, but I was already into the story and had to know what happened. Only after I finished this book did I get my hands on Outlander and all of the subsequent releases in this series.

  1. Hello! I am a new follower from Follow Friday. Diana Gabaldon is on my TBR list. I've got Outlander all ready to go on my Nook. Now, if I can just get my review pile whittled down, I'll be getting somewhere. :) Have a great weekend.

  2. Hi Marla! I'm glad you could stop in! I just popped by your blog too! Let me know how you like Outlander. I think books like that (with 600+ pages) are perfect for an ebook reader!

  3. Hi Jennifer. New follower! Dragonfly in Amber is new to me, although I'm familiar with Gabaldon. I'll have to check it out.
