Friday Coffee and Bookish Speaks – Favorite Genres

Hi everbody! it’s been a long time. I took a long break from discussions over the holidays. They were super busy I finally have time to catch my breath and catch up.

I am indulging in a honey latte today for something different. What are you drinking?

I wanted to talk today about my favorite genres. I try and branch out sometimes but I find myself really at home with chick-lit and cozy mysteries. I like humor and feel-good stories. These genres offer that in abundance. I’ve been especially reading a lot of cozies due to the Mystery Thriller Week that is coming up in February.

I stretch myself by cross reading genres like science fiction and thrillers. I find that I can do those genre in small doses. If I have a lot of those I take on extra reading for the genres that I love.

As I have come into myself lately adhering myself to my favorite genres, I can’t help but wonder what does my genres say about me? I think there are preferences highlight our personalities.

I think these genres are telling to my fun loving quirky side. I think that’s one of the main reasons I love cozies. They are quirky in nature. I thank the chick-lit shows my romantic fun side. I really enjoy them! I’ve told you about my favorite what are your favorite genres? What do you think they say about you?

    Welcome back to discussions! I’ve never really thought about how the genres I read describe me. I’ve branched out a lot more through blogging, so I’m not sure about every genre. I do read tons of contemporary and I think that’s partly because it’s how I learn things and become more empathetic. I also really like mysteries/thrillers. I don’t like scary things in REAL life, but I can handle it okay with books, and it’s a curious side of me, I guess.

    I do want to read more cozies though because I like the mystery but how it’s not super scary or gory.
