BTT - Trends

This week's Booking Through Thursday question is:

Have your book-tastes changed over the years? More fiction? Less? Books that are darker and more serious? Lighter and more frivolous? Challenging? Easy? How-to books over novels? Mysteries over Romance?

Let me start off by saying that I'll read just about anything that I can get my hands on. I do have problems reading horror and true crime, I have tried both those genres and I just cannot wrap my mind around them...they scare me too much. One because of my very active imagination and the other is just too much for me.

I enjoy classical literature, and try read at least one classic a year. Last year I read The Lusiads by Luis de Camoes, it's an epic tale of the Portuguese people. This year I haven't decided yet...

I enjoy reading biographies, but I haven't done so in a long time. I believe the last one I read was a biography on Audrey Hepburn.

I stay mainly in the fiction area. I occasionally enjoy a science fiction and fantasy novel. Love thriller, suspense and the lighter mysteries. I'm a huge fan of romance, from the lighter kind to the more sensual kind. But my first love is historical fiction. I love it!

Do you have an all-time favorite Classical Fiction?

I'm HUGE fan of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, but I have soft spot for Shakespeare's Othello. My tastes varies quite often. So they may change next year.

Thanks for stopping by!
