BTT question is waiting for us:
Name a book you love in a genre you normally don’t care for. What made you decide to read it? Did it make you want to try more in that genre?
What genre do you avoid reading and why?
I recently reread 'Unspoken' by Sarah Rees Brennan, which I got from Netgalley and just reviewed. It's a YA novel, which I usually don't read and I only chose this one because I thought the synopsis was quite nice. I wasn't expecting much from it and absolutely fell in love with it. I raced through it in my train journeys on one day and then reread it. It was brilliant and I hadn't expected to like it this much.
YA is also the genre I usually leave alone. I usually find it a bit too stereotypical and even boring at times. And that is why I was so surprised with this one. It didn't necessarily make me want to pick up more YA, but it definitely made me want to read the sequels that are in the works. Perhaps if I found YA novels with similar plots, then I probably would try them out.
So, how about you?
