Weekly Book Chat - Opening the Floodgates

From TGIF Reads
Book Questions and Answers Q. Gateway Books: Which particular books opened you up to a new genre?
I would say, Corsets & Clockwork: 13 Steampunk Romances by Trisha Telep introduced me to the "Steampunk genre" (I even mentioned it in my Favorite Reads of Summer 2011). Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and speculative fiction that involves a setting where steam power is still widely used - usually Victorian era Britain.

Also, The Hunger Games Series, Suzanne Collins introduced me to the world of Young Adult Literature - not a genre I ever imagined I would like, but now, I do.

Q: We want to see what you look like! Take a pic with you and your current read!
Took this picture this morning when I was getting the young 'uns ready for school.

Q. All other thing being equal, would you rather read a book that's hard/challenging/rewarding or light/enjoyable/easy?
I like my books light and easy, as reading for me is for entertainment. So bring on the mysteries, paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi and thrillers. I'm not big into non-fiction, so you won't find me thumbing through the pages of self-help books, history of the World types or even autobiographies - though there are exceptions of course - and sometimes I get tired of reading a certain genre and have to give it a break for a while.

I really would like to read more steampunk. If only there were more hours in the day to get all my desired reading in. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Reading!

Hey there,
I'm not big on non-fiction either, and I love a fun/easy read. If it's too much work, it's not fun anymore, and I read to escape real life. Also, yes to the Hunger Games. That book didn't introduce me to YA, but it did introduce me to dystopian. And I will be forever greatful to Collins for that :) Btw great pic!
