#NewtoYouGenre

I have a new way of tracking everything and this will help me find new genres to read, track what I am reading better, and see my reading trends. I‘m really excited about it especially when i get used to it. Am I the only person who tracks reading in a variety of ways? #auldlangreads #newtoyougenre #trello #readingorganization #tracking

A genre that I had never heard of until last year is Cli-Fi, which is fiction related to climate change. I‘m interested in reading something from this genre, particularly as it had been 70 degrees several times this winter, which is unusual to say the least. The tagged book sounds interesting. #NewtoYouGenre #AuldLangReads

OriginalCyn620 I‘ve read one cli-fi and didn‘t enjoy it, but it was the particular book I chose, not the genre. I hope this one is better! 3d
WanderingBookaneer I liked this one a lot. 3d
MallenNC @WanderingBookaneer It sounds really good! 3d
MallenNC @OriginalCyn620 I think it would definitely matter about the book chosen. I don‘t like regular sci-fi except in very rare cases, and I think this would be the same. 3d

I‘d never heard of silkpunk until the #booked2020 prompts were revealed! This one was listed on GR as essential silkpunk. #newtoyougenre #auldlangreads

Butterfinger This is the one I've chosen to read for this prompt. 3d

I‘ve never read a graphic novel, but this one had such a lot of #LitsyLove last year that maybe I should give it a try.

Here are examples of 2 genres new to me: swashbuckler and mythopoeia. I did read read Silmarillion long ago, but never a swashbuckler.

Day 14: #newtoyougenre #silkpunk #auldlangreads I had never heard of Silkpunk until I saw it on Litsy. If I were to explore it, Jade City looks like a good one to start with. Any other recommendations?

Day 14 - #NewToYouGenre #AuldLangReads

Many words to describe this genre: mythical fantasy, timeless romantic love story, magical, story book fiction and reality blend, folkloric fable, lots of symbolism.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Sounds great!!! 4d
EadieB @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Reading soon as I got a copy from the library. 4d

#AuldLangReads Day 14: Cookbooks are mainly #NewToYouGenre for me as I generally do not read them, even those published by National Geographic and Bargain Priced at that at Barnes and Noble, Brentwood, CA branch. :)
