Book Blogger Hop!
Happy Friday! Last weekend I had planned to do a lot of reading but it didn't happen. So I'm planning that again for this weekend. We're supposed to get a lot of snow so if that's true then I'll have nothing to do but stay in and read!
It's time for the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books. Each week over 200 book bloggers participate, so it's a great way to meet new people and find new books to read. This weeks question:
Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?
I read a few different genres. I like non-fiction because I'm interested in everything that goes on in our world and learning about different ways that people live. I like chick lit because it's light, good fluffy fun. I like contemporary fiction because it tells stories of lives I wouldn't otherwise know about.
One genre that I really enjoy but doesn't get a lot of attention is Urban Christian fiction. It's real, edgy and doesn't shy away from drama. Though these characters are Christian they are not perfect, but the message remains that if we stay faithful to God we can get through the tough times. I was initially drawn to this genre because of the similarities to the church and culture that I live in.
