Today's question: Do you have a specialized blog where you only review a certain genre or type of book? If so, what is your favorite thing about that type of book? If not, what is/are your favorite genre(s)? What makes that genre(s) a favorite?
And my answer would be a resounding YES!! My blog is all over historical fiction like flies on ...well, you know what they're on! I call The Other Boleyn Girl my "gateway" drug - it was the beginning of my love for the genre and now I can't get enough! I've thought about expanding my reading and reviewing to include other genres in order to gain a wider audience for my blog, but I don't have the passion there like I do for HF. And besides, I just can't tear myself away long enough to read anything else anyway!
What is my favorite thing about the historical fiction genre? Everything! I love that you can learn while still being entertained, I love the settings, I love the history, I love the clothes and above all I love the characters, whether they're are good or evil. I love trying to figure out what makes them tick and seeing them as real people instead of names you read in a history book. The trials and tribulations they endured ,which shaped who they were, the loves and friendships they shared, and their impact on historic events.
So, that's my story....what about you?
