Book Blogger Hop: June 14-20, 2013
This weeks question, submitted by Tanya:
"What is your favorite genre? The type of book you read the most? Recommend a book."
I read almost any genre or type of book. I don't read erotica, nor science fiction. I used to not read suspense or mystery, but began reading this genre a couple of years ago. I used to not read fantasy fiction, but began reading this genre a few years ago too.
My favorite genre, or genres would have to be:
Historical fiction, British history which includes books on royalty, Holocaust and World War II, Christian non-fiction, and classic literature.
Instead of recommending a book, or books, since I listed more than one genre I love. I'll list some of my favorite authors.
For historical fiction: Margaret George, Jean Plaidy, Rebecca Fraser, Rosalind Miles, Alison Weir, Philippa Gregory.
