Micro Brew | Favourites
Micro Brew is hosted by Allie @ Hexen Librarian and its a fun way to promote something you love. On the 1st of each month she’ll give us 2 lots of prompts/questions for the 2 post that month.
Best thing is you can take part when you’re ready! So your answers can go live on the designated days or later on when it suits you best.
To take part all you have to do is tag Allie so she can see your responses, visit Melanie (part of the prompt creation) on twitter, include the header and an explanation, and complete the themed prompt.
April 22nd: Sticking with the genre topic, what’s a genre you’ve recently discovered you enjoy? Is it way out of your norm or comfort-zone?
I’m actually a little stumped for this prompt as I don’t really think there is anything I’ve recently discovered.
I do think that recently there seems to be more books fitting that horror/fantasy combo nicely, and enough so that I can get non-horror reader to read them. I’d like to see more in this mix because the few I’ve read have worked really well.
But I guess the main one is poetry books. I read them when I was child but we’re talking all rhyming couplets and humour tales.
Thanks to Amanda Lovelace and Cyrus Parker I decided to give poetry a try again! I’m definitely still figuring out which authors work for me but the majority of collections I’ve read I’ve been pretty happy with.
I find that poetry books work best for me when I’m slumping or struggling to find time to read. They’re easier to dive in and out of, plus quicker to finish if you get really invested into the tales being told.
Are there any poetry collections you recommend I check out?
As with all of these post I plan to not tag anyone specifically as I’d love for as many of you to take part as possible. These posts are perfect for days when you’re having trouble with inspiration and a great way to find out more about other bloggers .
