The Book Blogger Hop hosted by crazy-for-books.com. Click on the icon above to be taken to a list of book blogs...it'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!
