Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.
The BBH question is:
'Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing tht genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn't read that genre anymore?
I would never ever give up reading, although I would probably resort to stop reading new books. My favourite genre is fantasy. For me fantasy is every book that adds a touch of magic to a story about human values. If authors would stop writing fantasy I would probably resort to Historical Fiction which , if well written, has the same qualities as fantasy. If authors would only write paranormal novels then the moment would come where I would retreat to classics.
The FF question is:
Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of the story? If so, which one?
I do not think I ever wanted a villain to win, because usually, I think, much more time is spent on building the "hero's" character and the villain is barely present. Saying that, if we talk about a story where the good guy becomes bad, then I am usually rooting for the (now) bad guy to conquer his bad side. For example Anakin in the Star Wars trilogies. Never ever have I cried for a mass murderer, but Anakin's story brings me to tears.
Since I am writing while I think I just thought of another villain, who is not really a villain if you ask me. Gollum is the tragic hero of 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. I always wish he could have somehow ended up happy, but somehow I feel as if Peter Jackson gave him a good ending in the movie, since he dies with what he loves!
