Blogger Hop and Follow Friday!




It's Friday! You know what that means, right? Time to hop (and follow)! :)


This week's question comes from Barb who blogs at Sugarbeat's Books:
 
 "Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?"

My answer: I love both paranormal YA and contemporary YA lit - basically, I love both real-life and magical story-lines. I've always loved paranormal YA, and I think that started at an early age (Harry Potter got me hooked!), but I've just recently (within the past few years) discovered how much I love contemporary YA - nothing too fluffy, though... I'm more a fan of the edgy stuff.  What about you guys?

  1. Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I'm a huge paranormal YA fan as well, anything paranormal really, but I've been reading a little more contemporary YA lately as well and am really enjoying those books as well. Looks like we have similar tastes so I'm glad to be a new follower of yours! Have a great weekend:)

  2. The small amount of paranormal I reads does tend to be YA. I read more than one genre. But there are a few genres I don't read. Come see what I do and don't read.

  3. I love to read everything. There are so many books that peak my interest. I want to read everything! I wish I was a faster reader. I wish I had more hours in a day! LOL!

    Today I posted a review of a grand Steampunkery Book!  Please do check it out, I highly recommend Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar if you want Steampunkery and a mix of many genres.  A new favorite... indeed a huggable book!

  8. Edgy is good. I sometimes find the fluffy books not to have enough conflict.
