Friday Blog Hop (sponsored by Crazy-for-Books)
Crazy-for-books’ Friday blog hop this week asks “What genre do you wish you could get into but just can’t?”
Hmmmm… maybe science fiction. This isn’t exactly something that keeps me up at night, but I did used to enjoy it a lot. I read Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and lost of 50s and 60s sci fi when I was a teenager. But I just am not flexible-minded enough these days to deal with fantasy anything.
I can’t bear fantasy (in the broad sense) movies or tv shows, books or magazines… I like a simple, realistic, compelling, linear story based in a real world place. I definitely enjoy books based in other countries and, sometimes, other time periods. But I can’t do different planets or the future.
I will say that, as a 30-something, I loved Star Trek Next Generation. I watched Voyager for awhile… But STNG, sci fi that it is, is pretty reality-based. Many of their plot lines would work fine in the US in the 21st century, for instance.
So, I guess I would have to say genres in the fantasy/sci fi realm… just can’t do it these days, but I’m sure I’m missing a lot of fun stuff.
Happy Reading! Ruby
