Book Blogger Hop time!!!!

soft...fluffy..... might just Hop
I'm at the end of an 8-day stretch of straight days at work .... and boy oh boy am I glad it's Friday!!!!!    Seriously.... it's going to be margarita time when I get out of work today.

The nice thing about Friday, other than it being the end of the week, is that it means it's time for the Book Blogger Hop.  Generously hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books, the Hop allows book bloggers to travel around the web, meeting each other, discovering books, and new blogs.

Every week, there's also a discussion question, which always makes for some interesting posts.  This week's question is: What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?

For me, that would be ..... romance.   I have never been a paperback romance kind of girl.   While I don't mind if other people read romance, it's never been my kind of thing.   I tend to just find it a bit much, or too unbelievable, or ....  a bit overdone.   Or, I just get impatient with it ....  like, "just kiss already and stop talking about it!"   A bit of romance can be just fine in a story, but when it's all about the romance... no thank you.

Happy Hopping, everyone!!!

Wow! 8 days straight! I hope you enjoy your time off.

I've never read straight romance either. I tried an adult paranormal romance a couple of times and I just couldn't get into it. I do love YA romance, though. But, I understand where you're coming from. To each their own. Otherwise, life would be kind of boring.

haha! A few people have said romance. Those are just the type of books I like to read between other genres. Sometimes I like to read that's light and fun with a guaranteed HEA and romance does that for me.
On the other hand - I don't like over the top situations especially zaney romances.
have a great weekend!!

I do read romance sometimes, but I definitely know what you're talking about. They're pretty predictable...the heroine and the hottie will eventually get over their problems and get it on :)

I'm not a huge romance fan, but I like what I call "chick lit". It's more modern day, humorous stories like Shopaholic. I'm not really into the ones that have the covers of Fabio looking guys.

I can understand where you are coming from with romance. I like it all the same but I have to be in the right mood for it.
