Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?
The more I read, the more I realize that a good story is more important to me than a genre. Here are two examples:
1) I used to think that I didn't like sci-fi, but I've found books in that genre that I've enjoyed. For instance The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, which I read recently and really liked (though the end killed me!).
2) I don't like love triangles as a rule, but I love Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices series, as well as Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series and both of those have triangles that are central to their story lines. I know "love triangles" isn't a true genre, but actually it is to me.
