Every Wednesday here at the Broke & The Bookish is going to be A Cocktail & Conversation time. We'll pose a question to 2-3 members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.
This week: What is your most favorite genre and why?
Tahleen says: My favorite genre changes constantly depending on my mood, so I wouldn't say I have a favorite genre. But my (somewhat) guilty pleasure is inspirational fiction. It's fluff, but I like it and in between the harder reads. For example, I just finished The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth, which is excellent and award-worthy but cannot be accused of being light reading, and I think I need something a bit lighter right now. Onto inspirational fiction!
Daisy says: My favourite genre is fantasy. I don't read nearly enough books in this genre, but I love it! I love getting lost in a world with magic, swordfighting and heroes (both men and women). I love the idea that just about anything can happen. Also: DRAGONS!
Jamie says: This question is so impossibly hard because I pretty much read and can enjoy every genre. But the one I think I always go back to and LOVE the most is contemporary (YA and adult). I love getting caught up in a fantastical world or a chilling dystopian but sometimes I find myself feeling stronger connections to the contemporary stories. I've really been more into contemporary YA books lately and I've read some of the most beautiful and heartwrenching stories along with some really fun and lighthearted ones. I always feel some sort of oneness with humanity when I read contemporary. I just love stories about people that could be my neighbor or a friend or the stranger I'll meet next week.
