[Book Blogger Hop] Horror vs Urban Fantasy


Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, where you answer a question and join a "hop". The purpose is to help bloggers discover and get to know one another.

For this week's question, Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books asked:

It's getting close to Halloween. If you HAD to read one of these two genres, which would you prefer -- urban fantasy, or horror, and why?

My answer:
Definitely horror for me! Urban fantasy can be a lot of fun, but it's very hit-or-miss for me. Horror almost never disappoints.

Thanks for reading!
Which genre would you pick?

  1. I'd probably pick horror, it more represents the season for me, but I don't read a ton of either genre!

  2. Horror is my choice too. So many great scenarios I like-summer camp slashers, creature feature, monsters in the woods, creepy theme parks, killer clowns etc! I do enjoy a good urban fantasy but I agree that it often disappoints. Too many wander off in paranormal romance with tropes.

    1. Yesssss!! :) Oh my gosh, paranormal romance is very difficult for me. I've only liked a handful of them that I've read.

  3. Urban fantasy is my favorite genre but I haven’t read it for ages. I haven’t read a lot of horror. Lots of thrillers etc but Not true horror.

  4. Urban Fantasy is hit and miss for me as well, but pretty consistent in what the genre entails. I do prefer the thriller side of horror over UF. (I did go and check out Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman as per your suggestion on reading my by him.)

  5. Horror is definitely a NO for me. I don't like being scared.

  6. I read tons of horror in my early teens, but then I went off it and have never really become a fan again.

  11. HORROR any day. I would pick horror over any genre actually. TBH most of them keep me awake at the nights and gives loads of nightmares. Yet I can't get enough of them.
