This is My Genre Tell Me Yours Tag


The Rules:

    • Credit badass Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek as the creator of the tag, use the created tag name graphic and link back to his blog.
    • Answer the questions.
    • Tag as many people as you want.

We all have them, those books we always go back to time after time, the ones that never fail to disappoint and know that we’ll love from the first page.

I saw this tag over on Inge’s blog The Belgian Reviewer and decided to tag myself, so here goes:

1). What’s your favourite genre?

Legal thrillers!

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

Hands down…John Grisham.  Of course, some of his books are better than others but they never fail to disappoint.

My collection - although I don't quite have them all

My collection – although I don’t quite have them all

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

I like the thrill of the chase, the court room drama and how things are never quite what they seem.

4). What’s the book that started your love for your favourite genre?

In all honesty, I can’t remember the first Grisham book that I read.  I know that I’ve not read them in publication order and my best guess would be between The Partner, The Street Lawyer or The Testament.  Having looked at a publication list with dates it was easier for me to track which ones it wasn’t 🙂

5). If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?

From this author it would be A Time to Kill, I think this is Grisham’s stand out novel and unbelievably his first.  I think it puts every reader in that “what would you do?” scenario and can you ever condone taking justice into your own hands.

6). Why do you read?

Escapism, a break from reality, using my brain for something which doesn’t involve a screen of some kind.

I won’t tag anyone in particular as I know tags aren’t for everyone but if you’d like to share your genre see the rules above.  Alternatively please share your genre in the comments 🙂

    Legal thrillers are so good! I can’t believe The Firm is still on my TBR after 9 months! But I intend on spending part of my summer immersed in his stories!

      That’s one of my TBR too! I love the movie so have high hopes 🙂

    I’m so happy you decided to do this tag too, and thank you for mentioning me! Almost 30 John Grisham books, that’s a nice collection (and a very cool pic!). What’s striking though is that his covers are so diverse in how they look. I’ve got 2 of his books in Dutch (The Firm aka Advocaat van de Duivel and The Client aka De Cliënt) and I read them a long time ago, in my first years of reading :-). Every time I’ll think of your blog now, I’ll be linking you to John Grisham ;-).

    Love the picture of your book collection!
    If you ever meet John Grisham, you might not want to mention that you think his best book is the first one he got published. “Oh yeah, John, it’s all been downhill since A Time to Kill, but keep trying, eh?” 😉 haha!

    Very cool tag! I have actually never read anything by John Grisham, but I was given Sycamore Row so I will eventually get to it!

    • 5th March 2017 / 5:44 pm

      I would recommend that you read A Time to Kill first as it introduces the characters that appear in Sycamore Row – although this one is a standalone it’s a good idea to get the backstory 🙂

        Ah ok, thank you for the tip.
