One of the hardest things for me to do is pinpoint my favorite genres, much less Three Favorite Genres for this week's Book List Meme. I like to dip my toes in many different genres and there are very few that I like unconditionally. Still, Rebecca demands a list so let's see ...
First, I'll say Neo-Victorian novels -- The Meaning of Night, The Somnambulist, The Quincunx. This is why I need to read Sarah Waters as soon as possible. Supposedly she's one of the best!
Second, I'll go to the source and choose Victorian Sensational novels -- East Lynne, The Woman in White, Lady Audley's Secret. I love them all!
Finally, I think I will go with Classic Mystery novels -- Agatha Christie, Josephine Tey, Ngaio Marsh. There's very few bad apples in all of their many, many novels.
What are your favorite genres? Are you partial to any of the ones I love?
