Friday Book Blog Hops 09/09/11!

September 8, 2011
Book Blogger Hop

It's Friday and time for some book blog hops! Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books is hosting a Book Blog Party!

This week's question is:

Q: Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?

A: I mostly read non fiction and I would miss it if I couldn't read it anymore. However, I would just read more novels if they stopped publishing non-fiction.

Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read are also having a blog hop!

This week's question is:

Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?

A: No, I haven't, although I have wanted some flawed heroes to win at the end!


  1. I'm visiting via FF and yes, this weeks question was a toughie.  I'm your newest follower and would love for you to visit me when you get a chance.

  2. Hi, new follower! I'm a big fan of flawed hero redemption stories. Although that's not really the same thing as a villain, it still counts in my book.

  3. Particularly if the "real" hero of the story is written as the good guy.  I usually end up wanting the flawed hero to win the girl.

    I'm a new follower (Happy FF!)

  4. I love flawed hero stories! I just can't stand it when the main character turns into the villain though!

    New follower :D

  5. I used to read more of non-fiction before, but I am into fiction now... I haven't read non-fiction books in a while... maybe soon (again =)

  7. LOL. No answer is a popular answer this week :) I agree that it's always nice when a flawed hero wins out because it feels like they've earned it more!

  8. Please don’t be shocked but this week I’ve got a straightforward, cut and dried answer to this week’s question... for a change!

    Root for villains? No way, no how.  Why am I being so narrow minded? Follow me back to my blog and find out why –

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  10. There are so many different things to read even if new books in a favorite genre stopped being published. Please come see what I would read. 

  11. I've never really tried non-fiction. I think if YA was gone, I'd try mystery or thriller. A hero isn't a true hero unless they have flaws like the rest of us:)

  12. I love nonfiction, too. If you have nonfiction titles you've read and loved that were published in 2011, I'd love to see you nominate them for the Indie Lit Awards. There are other categories, but I'm particularly interested in encouraging people to nominate good nonfiction.

    Here's my post: I've Never Met a Genre I Didn't Like. I'd also invite you to sign up for the contest to win a $25 Amazon giftcard this month at my blog.

  13. I also read a fair amount of nonfiction, although I do balance it out with fiction.   :)

  14. I should read more non-fiction come to think of it :) Maybe there would be upsides to this?
    New follower too :)


  15. I like a good guy to win -- I don't want him to be too perfect, though.

  16. I don't like it either in books or movies!

  17. I'm trying to read more fiction. I still like nonfiction best.

  18. I do read some fiction. I love biographies and memoirs, though.

  19. A flawed hero always deserves it more than someone who has it too easy.

  20. There are so many books, so little time.

  21. There are definitely upsides! I love finding out how real people solve the problems of daily living. Of course, most books are about people who are faced with extraordinary situations . . .
