What genre's do you like to read besides Manga?

I like to read Crime Thrillers, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Historical-mostly history books, Scottish Romance novels, and the occasional multiple biography on a bunch of people no one has really heard of.

So, what are yours?

09-19-2015, 12:28 AM
Sci-Fi/Fantasy, of course. A book genre, which takes you on an exciting journey and deals with the supernatural. :)

Or magical^.^

I do like to read a lot of supernatural books though. I like my ghost stories<3

I'm a huge Stephen King fan. The Dark Tower is my favorite series. Dreamcatcher is my favorite stand alone book.

The only book I wouldn't read from Stephen King is 'It'. I DO NOT like clowns and that one really creeps me out. Otherwise, I have read 'Carrie' and I saw the movie 'The Stand', which I thought was pretty good.

I like reading romance novels, fantasy and crime thrillers. I am very picky when it comes to new authors or books; the story has to really captivate me in order for me to want to take down the book from its shelf and buy it. I never go by what others think of certain books is currently popular, so I definitely don't keep up with various hypes around the world.

Anything that catches my attntion or interests me really. Occasionally some Romance novels.

It's not picky by any means. If you know what you like then the more power to you. I don't read long biographies because they bore me to death and I only read historical romance because I like the knight in shining armor and medieval times bit.

My favorite book of Stephen King is 11/22/63 also it's not scary at all :) I like reading books about rock musicians and the last one is "Just Kids". What are Scottish Romance novels :unsure:

I hate historical books: the most boring literature ever!
At least there are guys who can write me a book report (http://www.essaytrust.org) on history topics.

What are Scottish Romance novels :unsure:

Just romance novels that are set in Scotland :)
I guess I find guys in kilts appealing for some reason LOL

Looking at the name of the wind to be my next book.

Thrillers, Romance, Psycological novels most of all, but also classics.

90% of the time it is scientific and/or technical books, when its not then its either a novel (regardless of the genre) or manga.

I like to read many sorts of books. When I want to escape, my favourites are fantasy literature, including children's books, and murder mysteries. However, I also like to read non-fiction, about subjects which interest me such as Egyptology, Jungian psychology, mythology and other fairly esoteric matters. I read "serious" literature and classics as well, although tend not to read too many classics as I find some of them dry. I absolutely cannot abide chick lit, romance and "hard" science fiction about space ships with lots of techno-talk in them. I'm fortunate to be part of the Bookcrossing community and have come across many books and authors I would not have heard of otherwise.

I love Egyptology^.^ Favorite thing to read about was the mummies. I wanted to go to Egypt so badly (still do) and see the pyramids, so hopefully sometime in the future I can do that. Mythology is also a favorite of mine.

I like to collect language books and read them.

everything as long as it's fiction but mostly fantasy

01-06-2016, 10:41 AM
I like Horror, Fantasy, Adventure and Sci-Fi.

01-12-2016, 06:11 PM
Fantasy novels are the best (for me).

Looking at the name of the wind to be my next book.

(Maybe I'm a bit late) but you REALLY need to read it. I started The Wise Man's Fear and I'm totally in love with it. I like Fela, she's great.

Fantasy in general has been my go-to genre, but lately I've gotten into urban fantasy with things like Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series and Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Alpha/Omega series'.

i have interest in defense and security, so i like to read these kind of books.

03-19-2016, 06:27 AM
I like to read classics, like: Oliver Twist, Little Women, Great Expectations, and Pride and Prejudice.

03-19-2016, 04:01 PM
I read a book a day. Terry Pratchett is the best author ever.

03-19-2016, 07:54 PM
I enjoy mystery and romance novels = )

04-21-2016, 03:46 AM
I love mystery novels.At one point I was obsessed with Agatha Christie's work.Now I read
more of Sci-Fi as well.However the classics like pride and prejudice,little women and wuthering heights are the best.

Existential and psychological genres. I always find these kinds of books to be very insightful.

Fantasy and Science Fiction are my mainstays, especially books or series that break the standard formulae, be it with unexpected plot points/resolutions, unique storytelling techniques etc.

I'm a big fan of most fiction up till the mid 20th century. HG Wells is a favourite along with Lovecraft, Chambers and Bierce I suppose mystery, horror and science fiction are my preferred genre.
