Quoted from Armchair bea’s page, “Today’s genre focus is on genre fiction.

Genre fiction is kind of wide category. Science fiction, fantasy, horror, crime, romance.  Though often dismissed or ridiculed by the more “literary” minded, these novels often deal with complex themes and issues and some of the world’s most beloved authors write in these categories. Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Anne Rice, Deborah Harkness, Douglas Adams, P D James, J R Ward and George R R Martin to name a few.  Genre fiction can take us to places we never imagine, experience scenarios we’ve always dreamed of and open up new worlds to explore.

If you’re a reader of genre fiction do you have a favourite author or series? And what keeps bringing you back for more fantasy/sci fi/horror etc? And if you don’t read one (or more) of these genres what is it that deters you from those sections of the bookstore? I’m also curious to hear why you think these genres often don’t get the recognition they deserve.”

Please feel free to weigh in on this topic and deal us your faves in the comments below. You know we’re always looking to grow our to-be-read piles.

I need anything with romance in it, and I’m always drawn to the paranormals, especially dark and gritty ones…. Angels are always my fave. Gah, I love apocalyptic too. The desperation speaks to me for some reason.

Contemporary romances and paranormal romances are my addiction. I love unique storylines with heartfelt, sizzling romances and bold, memorable characters. And for me, I’ve come across so many great books this year that have totally exceeded my expectations!

My first book love at heart is love, so I adore contemporary romances– more young adult than adult. I think it takes a certain amount of art to bring creativity and newness to ordinary people in everyday lives. That being said, though, I also love to immerse myself in paranormal, fantasy, and dystopian/post-apocalyptic novels. The imagination it takes to build entire new worlds from the ground up is awe-inspiring.
