Booking Through Thursday : Genre's

A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. Hosted at Booking Through Thursday.

This weeks question is:
Amy and Sarah both asked about genres:

Amy asks:
Name a book you love in a genre you normally don’t care for. What made you decide to read it? Did it make you want to try more in that genre?

This is hard because I don't normally read out of my genre.  I guess the one would be GF Bale's Cry Baby Cry because it was a psychological mystery type book.  I used to have a copy of it too but someone borrowed it and never returned it. It was about a woman who's child was kidnapped and she was searching for her.  Big twist in the end but I can't ruin it if anyone decides to read it.  Either way it was super interesting, but I don't normally read books like that I just kind of found that one.  Yeah I wanted to read more but I was too much into romance at that time.
Bookish Sarah asks an interesting assortment of questions:
What genre do you avoid reading and why?
Probably Non Fiction, not that I don't like it just most of the time it's like whatever.  Like all those autobiographies.  I need some embellishment some fantasy, something non realistic to run away from my sometimes not so exciting life.  That's why I avoid it.

I avoid YA and hate paranormal stuff. Werewolves etc are NOT my cup of tea!
