    Thank you so much for answering my question!! I love how everyone has their own take. I’m not a reviewer but I like to mix up my genres. I love most of them, so it is fun to read different types of stories and keep things fresh/interesting.

    Thank you for the questions and answers. I read different kind of genres: contemporary, shifter and paranormal, BDSM. I am not that into sci-fi, apocalyptic or very dark novels.

    Thank you for answering. I love to read m/m and if the blurb is speaking to me i will try it. It is fun to mix it up a bit.

    I tend to read a lot of contemporaries involving friends-to-lovers, sports, music, art, or food, but I tend to pick whatever strikes my fancy. I (unintentionally) end up juggling a lot of books at once…

    Mood reader here 😉 I sometimes just stop reading a book and one year later I continue reading at exactly the position I stopped. And then I usually wonder, why I stopped in the first place.
    I also like to read several books at the same time. Many people find that odd, but as long as I remember what’s going on in all of the books, I don’t see a problem.

    great answers. I’m a mood reader as well. Sometimes I find I can’t get in a book, no matter how much I try, and sometime later I try it again and I just devour it… Though I feel I have to switch sub-genres from time to time so as not to get burnt 🙂

    Thanks for the answers. I’m like some of you, with quite a range of tastes in sub-genres. So, I like to mix it up, but like Marte, also pick something to go with my mood. Lately I’ve tended toward historicals and westerns.

    I mix genre’s all the time! Since horror and BDSM aren’t my thing I usually just don’t choose them. With things the way they are in the world, I find I’m reading more Y/A and books with former active duty military in them. Of course it could be that there are just more of those books coming out! I want to feel encouraged that there will be a better future for the young and a way to acknowledge those who now suffer from PTSD, panic attacks and physical injuries.

    Oh yes I have to mix reading all the time, even though I admit I stay mostly in my comfort reading genres. BUT I do have personal challenge every month to read genre I tend to avoid, just to see if I can surprise myself with the book choice 🙂

    Thank you for all the answers. I like to mix read too. I do have a tendency to want to stick with contemporary, mystery/suspense/thrill, paranormal./fantasy and sci-fi.

    Thanks for your answers. I like to mix my genres a bit too although I lean more toward certain ones. I find I can only read so many e-books before I need to mix it up with hardcopies, and those usually aren’t mm. I tend to read graphic novels in between and enjoy the change of pace.

    I feel like I read a lot of contemporary, but I definitely mix it up so much that I don’t have a problem with getting burned out. Definitely my biggest reads are contemporary and historical, but I read almost anything. Not big on horror, though.

    I read by challenge choice so my sub-genre choice is usually determined by what I roll for or what specifics the challenge requires. I find this keeps things pretty fresh. And since I’m typically an equal opportunity reader, I don’t have problems reading across the different sub-genres.

    I read most anything other than historical, sci-fi, high fantasy and hard core BDSM
