    I’ll read a lot but my absolute favourites are dark paranormal / fantasy. But…. They can’t have a crappy ending! 😊

    Thank you for answering my question! I read many subgenres but my favorites are fantasy, paranormal, and historical.

    Good question and interesting answers. I liked seeing reviewers having some broad tastes, but also great that different reviewers liked different subs, so LoveBytes has at least someone, usually more, interested in each subgenre.

      Oh I forgot to add my own favorite subgenre. It’s tough, because I like a variety, but I guess I tended to get the most out of historicals.

    Between all of you, all genres are covered and that’s nice to see. Thanks for taking the time to answer. I practically read everything even the genres I don’t like. But tend to stick with paranormal/fantasy, sci-fi, mystery/suspense/thriller, and contemporary.

    Thanks for the answers. It seems that all the genres are covered.
    My favorite genres are contemporary, gfy/ofy, May/December, friends to lovers. I like shifter stories too, but not mpreg.

    I love SF/fantasy and historicals (especially WWI and II), but I like reading contempories as well to mix it up a bit. If a book looks interesting, I’ll read it, whatever the genre.

    Lovely question. Thanks for your answers. Wow, someone who likes to read stories with asexual characters @Chris. Though I’m interested in that topic I have to admit that I haven’t found many books yet. Maybe I’m not looking in the right direction or books are sparse.

    I’m all about steamy smexy times within a paranormal or post-apocalyptic setting. I avoid the sweet fade-to-black contemporary stuff, YA/NA, and anything to do with children/pregnancy. I do enjoy the occasional mystery IF something about it grabs my attention, such as CS Poe’s Mystery of Nevermore (surprisingly funny) because I’m a fan of Edgar Allen Poe, or Santino Hassell’s Insight (fabulous, BTW) because I’ve never read about psychics in my PNR.

    Thanks for the great answers! I prefer contemporary, sci-fi, & paranormal. However, I’ll read any sub-genre although NA/YA and BDSM are my least favorites.

    Mine is fantasy, paranormal and historical. If you mix historical with paranormal and add a mystery to the mix, you make me a very happy reader! 😉

    My favourite is Sci Fi and there aren’t many M/M books about so I’ve read some great ones and the not so great too!

    I tend to go for contemporaries about sports, music, art, or food, and friends-to-lovers helps…

    Mine will be contemporary. Of course I also love a lot of others but contemporary will and always be foremost my main favorite subgenre

    Donnas answer cracked me up! I love the frankness. 🙂 My favorite subgenre is historical. I fall into a habit of just devouring contemporary because they’re “easy,” but my true love lies in the past.

    I love a good murder and a good historical – together is great!!!

    I would’ve initially said paranormal (because I got started reading M/M romance with shifters), but recently contemporary has kind of taken over.
