I’ve been thinking about my favorite genres to read and why I love them so much. I know I get half of my book tastes from my dad and the other from my mom. My dad and I love to read fantasy, sci-fi and YA novels, whereas my mom and I love to read historical fiction and mysteries. Though my dad and I have been getting my mom to read some fantasy lately. It only took years and years to convince her! I also love to read classic literature. So I suppose I do love a bit of everything. I don’t read nearly enough non-fiction, but I’m going to be reading some more soon.
I love fiction so much because of the pure imagination. The way different people can come up with so many different ideas and word them so beautifully. I love stories and they way they can draw me in and leave me thinking about them long after they are over. I’m never very harsh when it comes to my book reviews, because I find that if a book keeps me interested and reading until the last page, if it makes me care about the characters and the resolution, then I love it. If I hate a book, I simply won’t finish it. I love fiction of all sorts!
What are your favorite genres and why?
