Hi everyone and welcome to another tag post! I was recently tagged by Em@Keystroke Blog for the This is My Genre, Tell Me Yours Book Tag. This fun little tag was created by Tattooed Book Geek. Thank you so much for tagging me in this wonderful tag! For everyone else, please do check out her wonderful blog!
Moving on to the questions –
1. What is your favorite genre?
It’s hard to pick one, but I guess I do favor Young Adult. Ever since I’ve started blogging, my love for YA has grown more and more.
2. Who is your favorite author from that genre?
My favorite YA book has to be The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. However, since there’s only one book (I haven’t read I am the Messenger yet), I think my favorite author is a tie between J.K. Rowling, John Green and Cassandra Clare. I tried limiting the number to one author but I just couldn’t!
3. What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?
Well, I think YA pretty much caters to my age group so that is what pulls me back. I relate to so many characters on so many levels and that always makes me want to read more about them!
4. What is the book that started your love for that genre?
When I was about 9, my dad bought me Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer and I loved it! I think that is probably the series that started my love for the genre.
5. If you had to recommend at least one book from your favorite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?
I think as a non-reader, one of the best books to start with is Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling since there are so many references to Harry Potter in books, movies, memes etc.
6. Why do you read?
Why do I read books? Well, because I can! Books have always been a part of my life so I really don’t quite know to answer this one. My parents always wanted to make sure that I have the reading habit so I’ve been reading short stories and fairy tales since I was about 4. I can’t quite imagine my life without books.
As always, there is no pressure to do the tag at all!
And that’s all for today! Thanks again Em for tagging me in this lovely tag! It really was quite enjoyable. Until next time –
