Hello lovelies. I hope you’re all enjoying your time blogging. I want to mention that I’m doing my best to post on a weekly basis and I’m still trying to manage my time so I apologize for the delays for any tags or posts.
I want to thank icebreaker694 for tagging me in another great post and for always always reaching the same level of excitement I do when we’re fangirling.

What is your favourite genre?
- Science Fiction
- Young Adult Contemporary
Who is your favourite author from that genre?
J.K. Rowling for Fantasy
Pierce Brown for Science Fiction
Benjamin Alire Saenz for YA Contemporary
What is it about that genre that keeps pulling you back?
I think I read fantasy the most, is because I just love learning about new worlds and new endless possibilities! It’s the author’s chance to just unleash his/her wildest imaginations. I always have this thrill at the beginning of a fantasy novel where everyone and everything is being introduced and there are maps and a lot of cool information that supports the world being created and it fills me with inexplicable glee 😁!
Science fiction is a genre I read less from but still do enjoy endlessly and I think that’s because I am a true geek 🤓! I simply adore science and math so adding those two to fiction and making a plot out of it astounds me! I never fail to be amazed by how cool it’d be if I could achieve something the characters achieved if I studied and worked hard enough.
YA Contemporary is my soothing genre. I sometimes need to read about sweet stories that shouldn’t involve saving the world with normal teenage characters. They also have their share of feels and they make me feel so warm and fuzzy on the inside.
What is the book that started your love for your favourite genre?
For Science Ficiton:
For YA Contemporary:
If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading from that genre, what book would you choose and why?
For fantasy it’ll be the same as the first book series that got me into reading which is Harry Potter.
For science fiction I’d say Red Rising by Pierce Brown
For YA contemporary I’ll choose Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Why do you read?
I read because it’s one of the most entertaining things I’ve ever encountered. I read because it’s really the best way to escape this shitty world of ours and enter countless of others where the world is eventually saved by the good guys. I just take comfort in reading about amazing kick ass characters.
I came across this post a few days ago and I’m not sure where I found it from but it sums up why I read pretty accurately.
And of course anyone else who wants to do this tag!
Can you relate to my choices and reasons? What else would’ve you chosen. Let me know in the comments section.
