As many of you know, I’m an avid reader. I have read thousands of books in my 24 years of life. Ranging from mythological to romance to gothic to philosophy. And most recently, I was thinking about what genre of books fill my mind more. Which books are placed higher in my mind and also on my bookshelf.
I thought about it, and realized that the genres that rank higher in my world are philosophy, mythological (mermaids, Arthurian, etc.), Gothic-thriller, Ancient civilizations, poetry and meditation (shamanism).
Yes, I love to read romance, but it is not my favorite. I do not seek it out when I go to second hand bookstores. I do not request it for Valentine’s day. I do not seek out finance books, nor any subject that relates to it.
There is a hundred different types of genres out there, which breaks off into thousands and thousands of books. Each person has their own selection that they prefer, and that’s perfectly fine. I prefer either The Prince by Nicolò Machiavelli or study the lost civilizations of Egypt or Greece, while someone would prefer Twilight.
What’s in your library? What’s your favorite genre(s)?
