Booking Through Thursday

This week, BTT asks: "All things being equal, which would you prefer–a mystery? Or a love story?"

And I don't even have to think about it -- I'd choose the mystery every time. I guess that's why I don't read many romance novels. I love mysteries, suspense stories, thrillers, and those are the genres I read most often. I certainly don't mind if there's a love story involved along the way, but I don't go looking for books with a love story element as the central theme.

Having said that, I guess I should admit that the book I'm currently reading is a romance -- Richard Matheson's Bid Time Return -- which was the basis for one of the most romantic movies ever filmed, Somewhere in Time.

But it also features a mysterious plot with a sci-fi angle, so it's not your run-of-the-mill love story. And I'm loving it so far.


  1. I like the cozy mystery, but not the suspense/thriller kind. I also like a good old fashion love story with a happily ever after ending.

  2. I prefer mysteries.

  3. I'd take a mystery over a romance any day.

  4. Lately I'd choose the mystery every time, but I do go through periods when the romances are the ones that draw me. the ideal book, for me, has a little of both.

  5. I'm with you on this one! Definitely mysteries.

    Although i loved Somewhere in Time when I was in college. :)


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
