Blog Hop: Genre Hopping

An interesting Book Blogger Hop question this week…  What was the last book you read from a genre you don’t normally read?

I suppose Fantasy is my primary genre, but I bounce into Science Fiction and Historical Fiction fairly frequently too.  For something completely different 🙂 I have to go back to January, when I listened to an audiobook of Walden by Henry David Thoreau.  He has some moments that are excellent philosophy–and other moments that aren’t!  But I do like his thoughts on simplicity, and at least some of his thoughts on nature.

Before that, there was The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz, about how more choices actually make us less happy.  I’m fascinated by how the mind works, so it was a very interesting nonfiction book.

And technically I guess I’m in the middle of an unusual-genre book, as I’m midway through The Complete Journal of L. M. Montgomery, the PEI Years.  Journals (or memoirs) are not something I normally read.  But since I do read, well, everything by L. M. Montgomery with great frequency, it doesn’t really feel like anything unusual. 🙂

    Since I wandered into book blogs my reading has spread out so much I don’t know it’s me anymore!! But I am glad to like so many things now, and I think you will find it the same. As for autobiographies or biographies I have found them fantastic when they are about someone you admire, be it author, clebrity etc.. they help you understand a lot about the people you admire!

    Good job to definitely move to a totally different genre…going from sci-fi to a classic is a big jump. CONGRATS!!

    Happy Hopping!!
