This week’s musing asks:
Name your top 2-3 favorite genres (the ones you read most from).
One of my favorite genres is Light Mystery, not so much Thriller, but, a 'who done it?' I enjoy trying to see if I can figure out who did it before the end. However, most of the time I am fooled, because in the end there is a twist to who done it. But, when I think about the plot, I see how it all worked out that way. Agatha Christie, Don Bains, (he authors, Murder, She Wrote) remember the old TV show, with Angela Lansbury. I love that show, I never missed her, she came on every Sunday evening, way back when!
Another favorite genre is light romance with a bit of mystery/ comedy thrown in. I don't like trashy romance novels. If I start to read a romance novel, it starts to get trashy and smutty, I never finish reading it, no matter how great the story is. I throw it in the trash, where it belongs. I live to be entertained, not smothered in smut and trash. I don't see anything wrong with the characters falling in love and living happier ever after, after all, I have been married 52 years, and the mother of five children, I know how it works! Enough said? Some authors I like in this genre, are Debbie Macomber, Barbara Delinsky, and LaVyrle Spencer, and Kristin Hannah. And of course all of Jane Austens books.
Another favorite genre of mine is reading stories about animals or pets. I like James Herriot's books, and I also like the Chicken Soup books for Dog, Cat, and Pet Lovers. And, I loved Marley & Me, by John Grogan, and how could I forget "Dewey, The Library Cat," I loved that book. I also like Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who... books. I guess it's because I am an animal lover.
That's my Musings this Monday, what are your favorite genres?
