I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad). The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.
I was fascinated by the dreadful mistakes the British government made leading up to WWII. I knew nothing except the names of Churchill and Chamberlain before reading this book, but now I can talk about the British side of WWII almost as well as I can the Australian and the American. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in WWII or political intrigue.
