WHAT IF YOUR FAVOURITE GENRE?

Last time I said contemporary and fantasy (as in high fantasy). But now, I’ll change my answers up and go with mystery! I really like mystery, and the suspense that comes with it. It’s such a fun genre to read and will keep you on your toes.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR FROM THAT GENRE?

Brittany Cavallaro

My favorite author from this genre is Brittany Cavallaro. She wrote A Study in Charlotte which is a modern retelling of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE GENRE THAT KEEPS PULLING YOU BACK?

It mainly the suspense factor that draws my in every time. I like how this genre can puck at my brain and I try to solve the mystery while reading along with the book.

WHAT IS THE BOOK THAT STARTED YOUR LOVE FOR THAT GENRE?

I’m not really sure if this counts as a mystery (it’s more paranormal than anything), but The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. It was a mix of paranormal, mystery, and scary (not quite horror), and I loved every bit of it!

IF YOU HAD TO RECOMMEND AT LEAST ONE BOOK FROM THAT GENRE, WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?

17084242

Most likely The Clockwork Scarab. I think it plays with mystery really well, and there are some comedic moments that I think a lot of people will enjoy. It’s underrated, which is why I think a lot of people need to try it out.

WHY DO YOU READ?

I read because I like being in a new world, or a replica of my world, and learn about the characters’ lives. Lot of theories have been thrown around with why people are so drawn to fictional characters, and the answer was because of their backstory. I really do love an interesting character to read about, which is why I keep reading.

I Tag Everyone!!

That’s right, I’m lazy. 😀

  1. It was fun reading about how you feel about reading 🙂 My favorite genre is nonfiction.

    I really enjoy it because it allows me to learn the lessons that successful people learned the hard way, from the comfort of where ever I might be reading.

    If you are interested in the nonfiction I have been reading, or if you want to know what the benefits are from reading this genre in specific, please stop by my page. I post book reviews over biographies, classics, and inspiring nonfiction.

  2. Aw, thanks for the shout out hon! I love your blog too, in case it wasn’t obvious ❤
    It's nice that we can grow as readers and change our preferences along the way.
    Your love for Sherlock Holmes is awesome! I've watched about three episodes and wasn't super into it but I might try again soon. Meanwhile, would you recommend A Study in Charlotte to a non-fan?
    I loved reading your answers, great post! ^^

    1. No problem! 😂 It is really neat that people can change their views on certain things, it helps us to grow as people. And I would understand not getting into Sherlock, I was dragged into the fandom by force and I love it. I would so recommend A Study in Charlotte, even if you’re not a Holmes fan, it’s still a really great book! And I think it’s a good starter book for people who are trying to get into Sherlock stuff in general.

      1. Oh yay! I’m glad, because I didn’t want to dive into it thinking I would probably not “get it” since I’m not a Sherlock fan. Thanks! 😊
        Being forced into a fandom sounds… Very violent hahaha
        Good thing you love it now!

      2. I do hope you like it! And it was very violent indeed. I’ve been forced into the Marvel fandom too, but I’m happy because Marvel Studios is now one of my favorite movie frasnchise.
