This or That…? is a weekly theme/challenge hosted by the absolutely beautiful Rae. Check out her blog and follow her. You won’t regret it!
So for this week the This or That…? challenge is more of a kind of editorial. This week I get to tell you all about my favorite Genre of books. I am so excited to do this weeks challenge because…I LOVE to talk! I especially like to talk about my likes and dislikes. However, don’t be fooled by my excitement into thinking this challenge was easy for me! I spent a lot of time trying to narrow down genres to my absolute favorites. I am a very eclectic reader. So I decided to go with two of my absolute favorite genres Horror/Suspense and SciFi/Fantasy.
I remember the very first time I ever read a horror novel, ones not of the Goosebump variety. It was Stephen Kings The Stand. I was so scared, but I just couldn’t put it down! It was so good I picked up IT, and just pretty much fell in love with all things horror. Even though being scared isn’t always so fun, I find I am addicted to it. I am not the type of person who gets held back by fear, in fact it generally seems to spur me on. I guess you can say I’m a little bit of an adrenaline junky. Anything that gets my blood pumping, I am all for!
This is my go to genre. If the book is science fiction and/or fantasy I am probably guaranteed to love it! There are very few exceptions! The book I read that made reading suddenly something fun, instead of another school chore, was Madeleine L’Engles A Wrinkle In Time. So it was pretty early in my reading career that I realized this was my favorite genre! I love anything to do with space, time traveling, aliens, insane medical technologies, robots, elves, dragons, dwarves. I am excited just thinking about them!
These are the two genres I think stand out the most for me. I especially love when they can be combined; and especially when they are YA’s.
That’s it, that’s all
Until next time my friends,
