Follow Friday - Not my usual genre
Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in the genre?
Ugh that's hard. I typically read Young Adult, but a wide range of YA. I read fantasy, science fiction, dystopian, contemporary, etc.
I suppose the closest I get to stepping out of my genre is when I read adult urban fantasy. Typically these are trusted authors. Sean McGuire's Toby Daye series, Jim Butcher's Dresden Files or otherwise highly recommended books. It's hard to even say that feels like stepping out of my genre. I do read adult books, but it tends to be a mishmash (normally whatever good audiobooks the library has). Urban fantasy is the only adult genre I consistently step out of YA for (though wouldn't that just make it one of my genres?).
I know that's not much of an answer, but I'm a genre hopper. There are a few genres I don't enjoy, but I don't normally go looking for books in those genre. If I read them it's normally a case of extreme peer pressure.
