Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don’t like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.
I usually avoid anything that is set in reality like the plague (there is of course exceptions to this rule). I like there to be a smidgen of fantasy to something I read. I also enjoy historical fictions because if something bad happens in it, it is easier to accept that there is nothing I can do to fix it. But, with contemporary and real life stories set in my time I can't quite distance myself enough from the characters even if they are all made up.
But. Last week I just finished The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and I LOVED it.
It checked most of the boxes for books that I avoid but in an attempt to stretch my reading I listened to it on audio.
