This Friday and Saturday I'm participating in an awesome read-a-thon event, hosted by Squeaky Books. (Trying to wind down and, most importantly, cut down that TBR pile!) Saturday is also my 17th birthday, so yeah, I'm going to be a bit busy, but as always I will endeavor to return your follows and visits. Leave your links! :)
This week's featured blogger over at FF is: Rhiannon Paille.
And the question is:
Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
My answer: Anyone who reads the blog (or indeed just my bio) knows I love, love my dystopia. I've been on a huge dystopian kick this past year, said kick having been inspired by The Hunger Games. But I'm also crazy about fantasy-- I really grew up reading books like Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings and the Dragonlance Chronicles and books like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Coraline. Anything Neil Gaiman. I also love science fiction-- steampunk reads and YA series like the Uglies series. And historical fiction is just fascinating to me, especially novels about the Tudors and Ancient Egypt...
Yep, it seems I have definite commitment problems when it comes to book genres. If I have to pick (it's kinda like I imagine picking a favorite child must be), I'll have to go with fantasy. Anything speculative, like dystopia and steampunk, is built up from fantasy, anyways. This is a fun question-- can't wait to see what genre is most popular among everybody else! I'm betting on dystopia, considering recent trends. :)
I wish you all happy blog hopping and a fantastic weekend!!
