Aloha Friday #8: Out of your Comfort Zone

You all should know the drill by now, Aloha Friday is a day to take it easy! So I am going to ask a simple question and you run with it. Your answer's can be simple or go into details.


So, here is today's question:

What genre of books is out of your comfort level? Books you don't read? Why?

I would have to say Thriller for me, mainly because I assume that it will be scary and I am a wimp! HA HA HA

For more Aloha Friday fun, head over to An Island Life or Punky Monkey's!
XOXO

Until next time...
Happy Reading!

The real gory type with all kinds blood and guts description! I'm a wimp too! *L*

I should be saying that thrillers are the things that I just can't do. But I like them though you wouldn't catch me dead watching horror movie. I can't do most historical stuff and nonfiction bores me to tears!

romance novels. i don't know. the idea just seems so trashy.

Mighty M said...

Fantasy - Harry Potter, Lord of The Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, etc. I tried though!

NateAndJakesMom said...

Science Fiction. I just don't get it.

Charles Dickens. I'm sure he made a killing getting paid by the word but I just can't handle two pages of analogies for "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...."

I like my books quick and clever.

Sign me up for the horror category. Can't watch the movies either. I really get the creeps out of the whole thing & then I really don't sleep.

Thrillers and most Fantasy really are not for me. not for me at all..

hmmmmm....I'd have to say some Fantasy/Sci Fi is too out there for me. I cant think of examples now though.
I actually think Thrillers are comfort reads :)

enjoy your weekend :)

science fiction. I just cannot get into far out stuff!

I don't like to read paranormal books.

Yvonne said...

I guess mine would be historicals. I've never been into that genre.

TheChicGeek said...

I'd say Science Fiction. I really don't care for it much. I did join a sci-fi challenge and read "The Woods Wife" It was fabulous so it made me re-think my scardy-cat ways :)

I can't read or watch any kind of horror story. I wouldn't be able to sleep for a month!

Can not do horror/thriller type books. I tried to read Silence of the Lambs after seeing the movie. I got to one scene that I was obviously hiding behind my hands and could not sleep for weeks.
