Free Choice Genre Discussion (June '23)

Post by Heidi M Simone »

Hi everyone! So, I flubbed on this month's poll, so let's do a free choice month where we can discuss whatever books we're reading. I'm sure there are plenty of books on our TBR list that we can use for this month's discussion!

Here are some questions to guide discussion for the remainder of this month:
  • What book did you read or are currently reading?
  • Share the genre(s) included of your book.
  • Did the author portray the genre(s) well?
  • Is this a genre you tend to lean towards?
  • Please share your rating and recommendation.
Thank you for your patience and I hope you enjoy this month's discussion! :techie-studyingbrown:

Hi, there Heidi! It's been a few days since we didn't chat. I've been very busy with my studies and only Sunday and Saturday is my free time! But still, I really like commenting on your post because, to be honest, I found them engaging:D So, I hope you will keep posting them, and I'm also confused too why you didn't create a poll๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…But I understand that you are busy and maybe you could make a poll next month! So, let's back to the discussion๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

I currently reading The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chanini and it was fine so far :). The genres of the book are Middle-grade(my usual favorite genre๐Ÿ˜…), young-adult, fantasy, magic, and Adventure. Yes, the author portrays the genre well like there's some magic scene where they use their magic to defeat the villain. Yes, I like the genres and those genres I wanted to read so it was interesting so far:). I haven't finished reading it yet but I guess I will finish reading it soon!

Hi there! It has been a bit of time since we've chatted. I started a new position and my little ones always keep me busy! Aww, thank you for saying that you like commenting on my posts. That is so kind of you. :) I like having conversations with you too! And yes! I will absolutely keep posting the poll each month. This past month, my time just slipped away, but I'll make sure to do one for next month!

I just looked up The School for Good and Evil, and it sounds like a book that I would enjoy, as well. Thank you for sharing! Please do let me know if you end up enjoying it when you finish reading it!

What book did you read or are currently reading?
I've been reading The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett (for a while now because it's been hard to find time to read!). My goal is to finish it this month.

Share the genre(s) included of your book.
It's a mix of contemporary fiction and historical fiction.

Did the author portray the genre(s) well?
So far, yes, the author is portraying the genres well, especially when it comes to the topic of race in the 1950s/1960s.

Is this a genre you tend to lean towards?
I do enjoy a good historical fiction, so yes, I do lean towards this genre versus some others.

Please share your rating and recommendation.
I'm not done yet, but will post back when I do!

Of course! Thank you! I like it so far. I wouldn't say it's the best book I've read, but it's interesting enough to continue reading. Definitely let me know when you finish! I will be curious on your thoughts of The School for Good and Evil. I'll let you know when I'm done with mine. Happy Reading to you too! :)
