Friday Hop

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop hosted by  Click on the icon above to be taken to a list of book's enjoyable to peruse and you may just find a couple of fun blogs to follow!  This week's question:

What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?

Hmm, I really do love quite a variety of genres (which makes it really difficult to keep my TBR list numbers low) but one genre that just doesn't get me very excited is Westerns.  I really do want to get into these types of books but when I see a Western on my TBR list I tend to guiltily skip over it to the next title.  I know that The Brothers Sisters by Patrick DeWitt is supposed to be great, yet my ARC copy sits abandoned on the bookshelf.  Also, I've heard Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry is just amazing but it also remains unread.  I don't understand my hesitation because I've read (and loved) several Cormac McCarthy novels!  Maybe this next year I'll finally get around to reading another Western, have my socks knocked off and go on a Western binge!


  1. I think Lonesome Dove is the only western I've ever really enjoyed -- I've read it a couple of times. But, I don't usually read westerns. I chalk it up to just liking Larry McMurtry. :)

    Happy Hopping!

  2. Lonesome Dove was a great read.
    I wrote down THE BROTHERS SISTERS. I can't get into paranormal/fantasy. Fav genre is Christian fiction.
    Following you on GFC now.

  3. I usually do not read Westens either but there have been a few I have liked, including Lonesome Dove,

  4. I dont think I have ever read a western. I will have to give it a try.

  5. Lonesome Dove is so wonderful. It's beautiful and ugly and exciting and... just, so many things all rolled into one huge book. I hope you get around to it someday! :)

  6. Westerns are one genre that I really haven't gotten into yet but that's not because I have a particular dislike for them or anything. I've also heard amazing things about Lonesome Dove. Maybe that'll be my foray into Westerns!
