The This Is My Genre Tell Me Yours Book Tag

Standard

The Ths Is My Genre Tell Me Yours Book Tag Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek

1). What’s your favourite genre?

My favourite genre is a mix between History and Historical Romance

2). Who’s your favourite author from the genre?

My favourite author did not write History or Historical Romance but she wrote based on her time period which is The Romantic Period (1785 – 1832) . Today, many refer to her [Jane Austen] work as Classics. She is my only favourite author (for now), thus I do not have a favourite author in my favourite genres which is quite weird, if I do say so myself.

3). What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?

Retelling of the past. I love reading about an event or the lives of people in a time period which existed before I came on earth. A period of time when technology was not so advance, when the foundation that governed families, churches and country were in their building stages. A time when horse power referred to an actual horse, when traffic was cattle crossing or when the first inhabitants roamed across vast plains.

A tag from Mariana from FireHeartBooks call Bookish Alphabet Tag [a book title for each letter of the alphabet]. I thought it proper to put together this book tag immediately after participating in the Author A- Z Tag because it is similar. According to Mariana:

The only rule is the book you choose has to be in your shelf ; ) or if you’ve read it but don’t own it anymore you can use it too : )

Most Read/Owned Authors

Standard
Reading

Via Wikipedia with modification

Normally, I use Goodreads to keep track of the books that I remember reading. When I store such information on the best book media on earth, the system gives me in return statistics with little effort. An example is the most read authors from my list. I realize from that stat, I do not normally read more than one book from many authors. The only authors I have read more than three/four books is Jane Austen, that would make sense because she is my favourite author.

In addition, my most read authors corresponds with my most owned authors. Now I have a small physical library of not more than 100 books (not counting the borrowed never returned- my heart still cries for especially one copy), so it is easy to keep track of the authors. Some usually stay on my mind even if I read only one book for example Harper Lee but other times authors names are not on the tip of my tongue. It is only just a few years back, I made an effort to remember authors. It may sound stupid but my aim is always to recall the story and perhaps the book title. I guess this is why many of the books I read before I cannot recollect the author or title but mere fragments of the story.

Some of my most read/owned authors:

Jane Austen

Philippa Gregory

Debra White Smith

James Patterson


Who are your most read authors? let me know below in the comments section.

Books: Help Me Remember

Standard

Reading

Have you ever experienced that feeling of remembering some details for a book that you read some ages ago but the memory stops there. Sometimes you cannot recall the characters names but you can give tidbits of the places they visited and some of their family background. Even more of a challenge is absolutely zero recollection of the author or even the name of the book.
