Thanks for the giveaway! I don't usually read historical fiction. ;)

Susan T. said...

Historical fiction is my favorite Cali Willette! I loved A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley. It has two strong interesting female main characters, lots of adventure in the past and present times, some romance and happy endings too!

Susan T. said...

I don't usually read straight up romance because I find the heroines are usually vapid and the cheesiness of the dialogue bothers me!

erin said...

I don't read sports romance :) mainly cuz I'm not into sports. But Susan T! there are some awesome contemporary romance! Jill Shalvis, Jennifer Crusie, Tawna Fenske, just to name a few are very sweet and funny romances that I always get sucked into. They are realistic so it's like watching a rom com movie :) thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Cali Willette said...

@ Susan T. there are some romances that aren't cheesy, sometimes I feel the same way with love triangles :/ you just have to find the right book I guess. ;) Try some new adult romance.

Mystica said...

Since changing careers, I have abandoned non-fiction. I now use reading more for escape and entertainment than education.

Sam Kozbial said...

In defense of sports romances. I am not a sports fan, at all. The only sport I participated in was 25 years ago and it was track, but I love reading sports romances. Why? The men are always super fit, for one, and they usually work hard to get their woman, because they are super competitive. I feel there is usually this extra dimension to the story, like the sport is a secondary character and I always find it a fun aspect.

Lizzie S said...

I don't really read a whole lot of thriller or horror books. I primarily read fantasy/paranormal, so I usually don't venture out too much. Great giveaway!

Kim Amundsen said...

Interesting book.

Ty Wilson said...

I generally don't read a lot of romance. It's a genre I'm not very familiar with and based on the covers of most of them, they're not really written for me anyway.

Annie, the beauty of fantasy novels is the pure escape into another world. Whether it's the wizarding world of Harry Potter or Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, being in another world for a time can be a great vacation from the real world we live in.

Ashfa said...

I don't read a lot of Paranormal.

@Annie- you really should try fantasy! Maybe The Graceling Series by Kristin Cashore... The writing and the character development in fantasy novels is just great and you'll love it!

Anne said...

True Crime. I read the newspaper and listen to the tv news, that's enough true life crime for me.

Adriana Palma said...

Annie

i usually dont know the genre of books im reading but i think most of the books if not all the books i read are considered fantasy.. my favorite genre is post apocalyptic survival/fiction books, but i also like fantasy i cant give you an example of a fantasy book bc i dont know which books i already read are fantasy or not xD i try not to read high fantasy bc english is not my main language so if its high fantasy i may not understand/ or i will be confused.. when i think of fantasy i think about fairies and kings and princesses and worlds of magic and kingdoms and all that stuff that is set in the past.. but i think im wrong i think there is fantasy books which are set in the future and dont have that historical language.. u just need to find i kind of fantasy that u would like, that maybe has a bit of that genre u already like or has something u like in it.. wait a second harry potter is consider fantasy right?? idk .. but yeah i cant force u to read fantasy or like it.. its the same when people recommend me contemporary books i will probably wont read it..

Alyssa Susanna said...

I don't read horror! I'm a scaredy cat and can't handle it. LOL

Thank you for the giveaway!

Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

Alyssa Susanna said...

@ Ty

LOL. I love romance - but I will admit, some of the covers are atrocious. You should never let a cover be the deciding factor though! The Winter King by C.L. Wilson has a very bleh cover (it's pretty, but not pleasing), but the book itself is AMAZING. One of the best I've ever read :D

Juana said...

I don't read Historical romances I used to a long time ago, but my taste in book genres have changed now I read paranormal, contemporary, YA and NA.

Judy said...

I like most genres! I don't go out of my way to read the true story books. There are so many great genres that I have a hard time getting to them as it is.

Susan T. said...

nurmawati djuhawan - I totally understand about chicklit because I never read it either! Then I picked up Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult because it was about elephant researchers and cried my eyes out over it! Now I'm a fan! :)

Alexandra Perchanidou said...

I love all genres but especially fantasy and sci-fi with a touch of magic in it! Surely romance is a must!

Jan Lee said...

I usually don't read western novels. I just am not interested in gunfights and cattle drives.

Jan Lee said...

Sam Kozbial I can understand you wanting to avoid nonfiction due to it being not relaxing and more educational. However, there are some fiction stories that give the reader the background as to why the story was written. For instance, The Diary of Anne Frank... we know the family was persecuted for their religious beliefs, but to read about how they hid for years and still survived is an amazing feat and a wonderful read. (Just my opinion of course.) :)

treehill30 said...

i dont usually read paranormal books

Jewel said...

I don't usually read Dark romance books, just because my heart and mind can't handle it often. Once a year...maybe. ;)

Jewel said...

@treehill30 Paranormal books are not so bad. There are a few that are worth reading. I recommend Feral Sins by Suzanne Wright. It's not just Paranormal its a comedy. It made me laugh. Happy reading :)

Babel said...

I don't usually read detective stories because they tend to be a bit slow, but I have read some and enjoyed them to a certain extent.
Cheers.

Maria Malaveci said...

I don't usually read Parn

Maria Malaveci said...

I don;t usually read Paranormal. I am not sure why, but the only one I have read is True Blood series.

Sharon Stogner said...

I don't read historicals

Andrea said...

I don't normally read harlequinromance because I just don't enjoy them, and look for something more substantial in a book that harlequin books don't tend to offer.

Susan T. said...

Sam Kozbial - I've read a lot of non-fiction that reads like fiction! Try Erik Larson. Or something like Yes Please by Amy Poehler. No thought required! :)

Debbie W. said...

I usually don't read just comedy because I like serious plots better.

Nikolina said...

I usually don't read comedy cuz I have a weird sense of humor... lol

Farah Khalaf said...

I don't usually read mysteries and crime cause I usually read to relax and I don't find them all that relaxing, but actually, J. K Rowling has convinced me otherwise :)
Thanks for the giveaway!

Dovile said...

I don't usually read contemporary genre, as I find it too ordinary and predictable.

Dovile said...

@Maria Malaveci

Maybe you should try YA paranormal genre, like the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead.

Josy Herrera said...

Historical fiction bc i rather read of things that are happe ing now

Josy Herrera said...

@Dovile not all of them are like that, you should keep an open mind because you can find some gems. Maybe you should try Cotemporary suspence, if you like some unexpected twists:)

Danielle Merkle said...

I don't really like to read horror, it's just not really my thing!

Danielle Merkle said...

@Annie you should give fantasy a try! I thought I wouldn't like it. but then I read Smoke and Bone and I'm really into fantasy now!

Paola B said...

I don't read a lot of non-fiction!

Nikolina said...

@Paola B neither do I, but you'd be surprised how many other great book there are!

oriana said...

historical books or with sports
thanks!

Thais Pampado said...

I usually don't read sci-fi. It's a genre that doesn't catch my attention.

Irene Jackson said...

Sci-fi or time travel romance books don't interest me.

Josy Herrera said...

Cali Willette: you should read historicals like Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte or anything by Jane Austen! Great authors and very entertaining for being historicals! :)

Valentina B-v said...

I don't really like to read romance, it's just not really my thing! Thanks for the giveaway! (Valentina B. -on the raffle)

karin said...

I usually don't read non-fiction books/ biographies

Tara W said...

I rarely read contemporary romance. For some reason, I don't enjoy modern stories or romance. No matter how hard I try, I struggle to read them.

jmcgaugh said...

I don't usually read horror, because I've never liked horror movies or shows.

Denice Mae Cordero said...

I usually do not read classics and autobiographies, memoirs and the likes... =)

Thank you for the chance!

felicia sidoma said...

I usually read paranormal. Why because of the idea of different beings.

Esthefania de la Nuez said...

I usually don't read romance because most of the books are just about love at first sight and I don't really believe in it.

Lea Jerančič said...

Esthefania de la Nuez, romance books are so much more than just a love at first sight. You don`t have to beleive in it, you don`t even have to believe in love, but someday it will hit you ;)

Isabel R. said...

I don't usually read classics because of the old English, sometimes the plot can be slow, and the writing style can be too wordy rather than being straight to the point.

Angela ReadingCave said...

I don't usually read contemp. it doesn't allow me to escape from real life as fully as the other genres do.

Sabrina Joy said...

I don't really read romance. It's not that I don't like love or romance or romantic feelings. It's just that I'm more of an action-packed, adventure, suspense, and fantasy kind of gal. I like "cool," "heroic," and self-discovery or self-development moments and journeys more. Not going to lie but romance just makes me go "ick" sometimes because I'd rather much focus on adventure.

Sabrina Joy said...

Isabel R.,

I can get kind of understand how you feel about the classics. When I was in high school, most of my friends preferred not to read the classics for the same or similar reasons as yours. The old English was mostly the biggest reason and the wordiness was second. It's kind of hard getting through the old English, but I would really recommend you reading the classics because there's this sort of richness to them.

When I read the old classics, I find that there's this "voice" and passion in them that is just so beautiful. Not to say that modern books don't have them, but the way writers wrote then is different than the now. I find the words and voice in old Classics so beautiful and filled with this flowing richness. There's also a lot of wisdom in the classics that is a little rare in most modern books. Plus, the old Classics include a lot of lovely and velvety prose that is just really great.

Eva @ All Books Considered said...

Sci fi since I think I won't like it but I have liked it on the few occasions I've read in that genre

Ashley Kemp said...

I don't usually read contemporary romance because it's typically uninteresting. However, some authors have made it readable, such as Kira Adams and E.B. Walters.

gemiinii said...

@Ashley Kemp. I would've agreed with you back in the day but there are so many INDIE contemporary romance writers that have great INTERESTING things happening! Don't give up on it!

gemiinii said...

I dont read a lot of horror or fantasy because I am addicted to romance being present in the most part of the book
