Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don't like and LOVE it? Tell us about it, and why you picked it up in the first place.
Well, it would have to be 'Historical Romance (Regency)'. I was a huge fan of classics for a while, but then I got into chick lit and teen books, so I stopped the classics completely, and whenever I'd come across a Historical Regency book, I'd avoid reading it, thinking I am not in the mood of getting into the style or writing now. However, one day I found a book for Julia Quinn that seemed really interesting and thought to give it a shot. So I did. And I absolutely loved it! Not to mention it was 7th in a series, so I obviously had to read the first 6 books. Then I got so hooked that I'd read anything for the author. Now I am waiting restlessly for her next book to come out! After that I thought to give the genre itself another shot and I wasn't disappointed. It's officially one of my favorite genres ever.
