Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Do you prefer to blog about (a) specific book genre(s), or do you have an eclectic blog?
The funny thing is, I began this blog, seven (!) years ago with some intention of being genre-focused. My genre was young adult fantasy, although I never intended to be solely that. I was also writing young adult fantasy at the time, with my Beyond the Tales series.
Well, life, reading and writing have all evolved. I still read a fair amount of young adult, or fantasy, or both–but I’ve shifted to read more in other genres, and I seem to do more reviewing lately of nonfiction or Newbery Medal winners (kids lit, by definition). I’m also writing historical fiction now, working on revisions of my Phantom of the Opera reimagining.
At this point, I don’t think the blog is focused on any particular genre, and really my reading isn’t either. Fortunately, readers seem to have stayed through the evolution, and I appreciate that!
Bloggers, do you have a genre-focus for your blog? And readers, do you typically prefer blogs that focus on a specific genre?
