Follow Friday #12

 
 
As indicated by the above button, Follow Friday is hosted every week by Parajunkee.

This week's question is:

Q. Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?


A. Now, this used to be an easy question. I used to say Fantasy and be done with it. But now a days there seems to be so many different types of fantasy. I really don't know which to call my favorite. On the one hand, I like the books that create their own world. Their own creatures. Their own languages etc. On the other, I like the books that have all the fantasy elements thrown in to them. Faeries, elves, etc.

I like books ranging from The Neverending Story to Eragon to The Hunger Games to Lord of the Rings to Twilight to Shiver to Graceling... I don't know what books are considered what type of fantasy or paranormal or dystopian... I just like them all.

What about you?

  8. Hey!

    I think i'd agree with that, it's hard to put them under one genre. Nice choice of examples :).

    Here's my Friday

  9. Yup I do get confused about genres sometimes. The lines are always being blurred! But whether is it fantasy or dystopian, as long as the books are good it probably won't matter(: Agree with your list, especially Shiver and The Hunger Games.
