Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?
 
 This question is very easy to answer (I have many ha ha).  I avoid Horror, Erotica (and bodice rippers), and most Mysteries.  I don't like reading about a gruesome death or steamy intimate scenes.  That is why I mainly read YA- I can avoid all of that!
 
 
 
TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
 
Buy or Borrow: Where do your books that you read come from? The bookstore? The library? Do you prefer to own a book, or have it on loan?



Where do I get my books?  The library, yard sales, discount book stores, Amazon.  What would I prefer?  To be able to buy all my books from Indie bookstores- but sadly, I don't have the money for that.  I don't have money for buying books in general- so books that don't come from giveaways or publishers, come from the library.

  1. Bodice rippers are my very own personal nightmare. :) Horrors without an actual story too.

  4. Yes, YA books do a good job of keeping all of that out :)

  5. No horror books for me. Haven't read erotica yet, not sure if I want to.

  6. I definitely need to be stricter with my budget - I buy books ALL the time. I'm working on borrowing more from my library :)

  7. Like you, I want to buy all my books. But I have neither the money or the storage space. I try to get what I can from Kindle using the kindle for PC app because I'm not yet at a place to afford the actual kindle :-)

    I, too, am not into horrors. I tried. Didn't work out.
