See my library! Genre fiction - SF and Fantasy, crime, adventure and thriller....mostly. Non-fiction: I do read some. I like travel and adventure, especially caving related (not many available!). Wildlife (foxes?!) and cooking. Some biographies. I tend to enjoy books with well developed world building - where there is a sense of continuity about the world and places, not just episodes the heroes pass through. I like enjoy and prefer morally ambiguous characters and situations where it isn't clear what the "right" action is, and the characters have to live with, and justify, their choices (this is not the same as making mistakes, but acknowledging the world is complex)
Don't get this!
Time travel, historical fantasy (or history in general), romance. I'm sure there are many books in those genres that are excellent, but too many them aren't to my tastes to be worth the chance of you finding that one. YA. I know I have a lot in my library- especially Fantasy and UF, And some of it's quite good. But I prefer the more complex themes of non-YA work. Humor. Even Humour is unlikely to fit with my sense of what's actually funny. Politics. religion. Graphic novels. True crime
I have a wishlist, and a lot of series that are still unfinished. I like to discover authors new to me. I've reviewed and rated pretty much everything I've read while I've been on LT, which is a more nuanced guide than genre. I mostly read ebooks these days, so perhaps a pretty non-fiction might work.(There's the new illustrated Earthsea compendium). There are a few authors for whom the ebook availability in the UK is poor, so I'd welcome physical books of theirs.
reading_fox's Secret Santa is Cfraser. Help Cfraser pick the right book.
WeeTurtle: Well, did some searches and don't see this in her library. Seems like it might fit.
