OK, that’s another question from The Reader Poll over at Let’s Gab.
The choice of answers are:
I chose contemporary. This would have been followed closely by romantic suspense.
European Hystericals tend to bore me because more often than not, some of the authors who write the EH’s that I’ve read thus far, write with an American ‘voice’. Lisa Kleypas’ historicals are fab, but I think this is because she has such lovely heroes and her heroines aren’t quivering wrecks.
I love watching period pieces though, can’t get enough of them.
Incidentally I watched the latest version of Pride and Prejudice with my mother last night, and we both loved it. I was never that big a Colin Firth fan (I liked him just fine as Darcy, but I wasn’t overwhelmed), so it wasn’t a stretch for me to enjoy the new Darcy. Keira Knightley did a good job too, even though I generally try to avoid her films if I can. And no, I haven’t watched Pirates, and probably wont.
Anyway, I digress…
To this day, I still have no idea what urban fantasy means, so I avoid any books labelled as such like the plague.
I like watching sci-fi movies, but can’t bear to read them, and most paranormals with a few notable exceptions (Nalini Singh’s books), annoy the f*ck outta me. Especially when the world building is ridiculously complex.
Have I already mentioned how much I hate vampire romances? Urrrggghh.
Anyway, if you haven’t already, go and vote now, and don’t forget the other polls on the sidebar.
