Happy Friday, everyone! This week, I’m doing Feature & Follow, hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The point is to promote your blog by visiting and following other blogs to grow your network. Each week, the hosts will post a question on their blogs.
If you could write a book, what genre would it be?
As much as I love reading paranormal and fantasy, I don’t know if I’d be very good at writing it. If I could write under either of those genres, I’d go with a fairy tale retelling or a book very loosely based on one. I’ve always loved fairy tales growing up, and it’s fun to imagine where else the story can go or how one tiny factor can change everything. I say “if” and “could” because I’d be too obsessive over staying genuine to the source material and not smearing all over its good name. I know I’d have difficulties taking liberties with stories that I’ve grown up with and found personal connections with. But you never know until you try, right?
What I do dabble in is contemporary romance and historical romance. “Dabble” might be an understatement. I’ve written a handful of short stories and have been working on a novel that’s a contemporary romance over the last few years. Every single time I come up with a plot, it’s under either of these genres.
Black Friday Eve! You have $100 to spend on books. What are you going to buy?
I’d buy books that I’m missing from a series. Or I’d buy new editions of my favourites. One that I can think of off the top of my head is the Mortal Instruments series with the new covers. I currently only own ‘City of Bones’, so I’d dish out money to buy the rest of them all in one go.
What about you? What genres would you pick? Are any of you writers and what genres have you written in? I’d love to hear about it.
