Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don't like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.

A: Well there really aren't many genres I don't like lol. But I would say Horror used to be one of my lesser favorites just because I'd only read a few books in that genre and wasn't crazy about them, so after that I'd never given it much of a chance.

Then I got an ARC copy of Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry courtesy of NetGalley. Now even though I wasn't a big Horror fan before I've always been fascinated by Zombies so I decided to give that one a shot, and boy was I glad I did! I ended up LOVING it! And ever since then I've been getting more and more into the Horror genre (still working my way towards Stephen King!). I'm happy to say that it's definitely moved up on my list of favorite genres!

Have a great weekend and happy reading!


  1. Awesome. I am not a horror person either. Anna Dressed in Blood freaks me out just looking at it. I have visions of Supernatural and it goes downhill from there.

  2. I don't read that many horror books either and have yet to read any Stephen King as well. I really don't know why I haven't cause I'm not that easily scared. I will have to look out for Dead of Night. I love Zombies!

  3. Hopping through. I've never really tried horror. I don't know whether or not I'd like it. I don't scare easily.

  5. I used to read Stephen King, My fave is The Stand. But haven't read him in a very long time.


  6. I was never much of a horror reader myself. Although I did read a few when paranormal wasn't a big genre back in the day!

  7. I don't usually read horror either - too scary! I used to love Stephen King until I just couldn't sleep anymore :D

  8. The only horror i read is Stephen King and alot of his books lately I wouldn't even class as horror. I think he is more about the psychological thrillers these days.
