Drew has a top notch blog, so you should go check that out immediately.

The Rules:

  • Credit the bad ass Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek as the creator of the tag, either use the created tag name graphic or create your own and link back to his blog
  • Answer the questions
  • Tag as many people as you want

The Questions…

What is your favorite Genre? I don’t think I have a favorite, but I started with romance and keep going back to it.

romance

Who is your favorite author from that genre? You are killing me Drew… I’m going with Jill Shalvis!! Although there are plenty she is definitely my favorite I recommend her to everyone..I even got her to sign  a book for me at Nora Roberts Turn the Page bookstore. She is so sweet and kind, her husband and my husband hit it off 😉

What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?  This genre is always good for a quick escape. No heavy plots, realistic characters (in most romance books), it teaches me how to listen, be kind, give more to others. I know crazy you can get that just from a romance book.  If it is well written you always learn something new in each book.

What is the book that started your love for your favorite genre? I want to say Nora Roberts Montana Sky.  It wasn’t the first romance book I read, however it is the one I will re-read every year.  Nora Roberts is queen of romance writing, I have also met her multiple times and she is beyond sweet and kind.

If you had to recommend at least one book from you favorite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start that genre, what book would you choose and why?

Uhm as listed above… I would pick a Jill Shalvis book probably Simply Irresistible since it is my favorite book in her Lucky Harbor series.  I ❤ Jax

Simply

Why do you read? I think I read for the same reason most of us do. To escape reality even for a bit at a time. I mean who doesn’t want to be the strong kick butt hero or heroine for a little while. The person overcoming every obstacle set before them?

  1. Ooh, colour me a little surprised! 😀 Romance and I are usually a poor match, but maybe I just told myself that and it’s not really the case? Because I’m getting excited to read Nora Roberts now! O_o Quick escapes are fabulous. Thank you for the shout-out! 😀

  2. Boom! Great to see a different genre popping up for this tag… 🙂 There’s been quite a few Fantasy’s and Psy Thriller… not that it’s bad… because I’m leaning towards one of those as well, but I’m STILL trying to make my mind up 😀
    So, yes, loved seeing something different here 🙂 I think I’ve ever read one Nora Roberts book.. back when I was… well, younger… she definitely writes well!

  3. Romance!! I love me some romance and doesn’t have to be “real life”..I love Fantasy Romance novels, YA romance, New Adult, SciFi Romance, allllll types =) I’m a sucker for love lol. Reading to escape, yes yes yes. I couldn’t agree more with you. I love immersing myself into another world and imagining all of it too =)

    1. You just haven’t found the right romance book yet 😉 I love all genre’s this tag was so hard for me to pick just one! I went with what started me into hard core reading… I have a lot of fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal on my shelves too! So no worries we can still be blogging friends 😀
