Today's question: What is your favorite genre to read and why?
My answer should be pretty obvious. Just look at my bookshelf to the left. I LOVE/ADORE/CONSUME YA novels. My favorites are pretty much anything paranormal as long as it's written well, though I have read quite a bit of contemporary YA as well - Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins is one of my new all-time favorite books. I've read it twice and I will probably read it again when I'm done with the book I started last night (DIE FOR ME by Amy Plum).
I started reading YA when I was a kid. I belonged to some book club (might have been Scholastic) and I would get books sent to me every month. Some were paranormal, like there was one I remember about a girl in a haunted house, and some were contemporary. All of them helped me deal with my life and how different I felt at that age (but who doesn't feel like they don't fit in at 13, right?). I read and love it today because it's my escape into a world that I wish I had when I was that age.
So that's me and why I love YA. What about you? What do you like to read and why?
