Book Blogger Hop (15) + Follow Friday

It's finally the weekend, which means time for another hop! Hosted by the lovely Crazy-For-Books.

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This week's question from Lori:

Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?

Oh my goodness. If authors stopped writing historical fiction, I would definitely take up writing it for myself, I love it that much. But as a back-up, I would probably start reading the classics and maybe some fantasy?? That's the closest genre to historical fiction I can think of.





Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story?If so, which one??

Oh man, talk about bringing out my dark side! Hmmm... I definitely think I would have wanted Cesare and Sancha of Aragon to have ended up together at the end of The Borgia Bride. They shared such undeniable passion between them! But Cesare's I-seek-world-domination-at-any-cost & if-you-don't-get-out-of-my-way-I'll-kill-you attitude got the better of them. I guess I've just got a bad case of bad boy syndrome... I kept thinking if they ended up together, Sancha could have kept his rage at bay. But I guess it was just too good to be true...

If PNR was cut from genres I'd probably go for Historical Romance first thing. :)

I often wonder when what we consider contemporary fiction might become classed as classics... I love a bit of historical fiction too.

Writing it, isn't a solution I've seen before this hop. Good answer!

There are so many different things to read even if new books in a favorite genre stopped being published. Please come see what I would read.
