Feature and Follow Friday || Book Blogger Hop

Hello Friday! Welcome, new followers. Check out my  sidebar and choose how you'd like to follow or just follow me on Bloglovin'. If you're an old follower, welcome back!

This week's question is:
What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?
My answer: 
Easy. Eric Carle's books. My favourite is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Read this to the daughter when she was young and ended up collecting more of Eric Carle's books!

This week's question is:
What is your favorite genre? List two of your favorite books in that genre.

My answer: 
If you've been here before, you've probably noticed the lack of focus of this blog; I'm not into YA very much, and there is definitely little paranormal activity. Otherwise, I'm such an eclectic reader that I find it torturous to have to think of a favourite genre.

I have enjoyed quite a few books in these genres, though I have to point out that I didn't choose them because of the genre per se. And I'm limiting favourites to three (not two), and only those read this year. Click on the covers for the reviews!

Literary Fiction

Historical Fiction
  Fear in the Sunlight 

Non-fiction (mainly memoirs)

Have a wonderful Friday evening, and an even better weekend!

  4. Hopping through. I've never read Jacqueline Winspear. I thought her books were mysteries. Do you think it's more historical focused than on the mystery?

    Where the Night Kind Roam

  6. The Hungry Caterpillar!!!! And Rainbow Fish and Harold and the Purple Crayon!!! Good times...

    But for me, the genre has definitely been stuck on romance for a long while now though I do jump from time to time with a new book in a different genre.

  7. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of our favourites too! new follower via bloglovin' :D

  8. Oh The Very Hungry Caterpillar is such a wonderful book :D I think I still have my copy from when I was a kid somewhere.

    My curiosity has been piqued by your Historical Fiction picks. The Perfume Collector certainly looks interesting :)

  9. I totally understand. I love a good stand alone fiction with a great story. But a favorite genre is hard for me too! Love your blog :)
