This post is where I combine 3 different Friday bookish blog hops and the questions posed by each. I just couldn't leave any out!
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.
Yes, I have. It was "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. I don't read YA very often but I knew that I wanted to see the movie. I recently had started a "read-the-book-before-seeing-the-movie" rule. So, while I was out shopping I picked up a copy. I devoured it in one sitting, finishing it in the wee hours of the morning. I can honestly say that if I hadn't seen the movie preview, I probably wouldn't have read it and would have missed out on a great book.
Q. If you could be a character from any book, who would you be?
This is a really hard question! I've read so many books and loved so many characters. So, I guess just for something fun, I'd be Amanda Burns from LFYI Treasure Island, FL. She owns a bike rental shop by the beach. I'd love to live by the water some day....sigh....
Q. Comfort Reads: Which books do you go to for comfort & familiarity? I've never really tought about this before but now that I take time to think about it I would say I turn to Historical Romances. They've always been my favorite because they are what started my love of reading.
So for me, curled up reading a good Regency or Western Romance with a hot cup of tea is my comfort zone :)
