What is your favorite genre to read?

I'm eclectic in what I read (it has to be clean, though), but my favorite genre is suspense/thrillers. I also love a good mystery! :)

Elizabeth (lizr8900) | 318 comments I'll read just about anything but my favorite genres to read are historical fiction and fantasy. I'm sort of on opposite ends of the spectrum here =)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments Christian fiction is my first love. And within that it's historical fiction, romance, mystery/suspense

Secular fiction - historical romance (the secular romances are my guilty pleasure), scifi/fantasy, young adult


Wall-to-wall books - wendy | 12 comments I love books of almost all Genres, but...
Historical Fiction is my Favorite.

Diane U (djuseless) I enjoy Amish, historical and contemporary Christian fiction. I have not tried sci fi or fantasy yet. Any recommendations?


message 8: by James (new)

James M. Becher (faithfuljim) | 179 comments I like historical fiction (I'm fascinated by different historical periods) and good science fiction--it has to be good (some sci-fi is cheap). And all the better if it's Christian. My first novel is historical (time of Christ) and my 2nd is sci-fi (time travel) with parts of historical fiction. (check out my post about my books).


message 9: by Margaret (new)

Margaret (njbookluvr) I enjoy a variety of genre's. I'm more concerned about it being well written than which genre it is. I read mostly Christian fiction and it's sub genres but I will branch out and read other genres as well. Actually I intentionally read other genres and evaluate them from a Christian perspective. It has actually helped me to be stronger in who I am as a Christian.

Anna Elizabeth (anna_elizabeth) Fantasy, all the way! Then I like contemporary fiction...especially if it's Christian. I also like some historical fiction.

Fantasy - The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia.
Science fiction - I haven't delved in that world - yet.

Hmm. Maybe The River of Time series (Waterfall, Cascade, Torrent, Bourne, & Tributary) by Lisa T. Bergren and Corridor by Robin Parrish. Those are some of my favorite books. :)

Prophet by R.J. Larson is a good read and it's not too heavy on the fantasy so it might be a good book to start with.

Marie Burton (marieburton2004) Historical fiction centered around various monarchies is my first love; Christian historical is my second.

This may seem like shameless self promotion, by I strongly suggest you check out my time travel novel, "Impossible Journey, A Tale of Times and Truth." It has elements of both science fiction and historical fiction as well as a good message. My other recommendation for sci-fi would be C.S.Lewis' Space Trilogy--but, seriously, try my book first. Thanks.

message 19: by L (new)

L My favorite genre is fantasy. I love reading fantasy fiction but also writing it too. I love the old-style fantasy by authors such as Terry Goodkind, Robin Hobb, David Farland and JRR Tolkien. However new authors such as Gail Z Martin and George RR Martin are really amazing too, and their style is detailed and gripping.
It is a genre in which one can loose themselves, where creativity is not limited and ones imagination is open to endless possiblities. Worlds, creatures and magic merge and combine to create some of the most origional, inspired and outstanding works of all-time. This is a genre that has no boundries and which is diverse, with different authors styles juxtaposing others with their 'take' on things such as magic.

I will read anything and do love Historical Fantasy, but this genre is and always has been something special.
