What a great idea! I love following readers blogs almost more than I like blogging myself. What a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.
This week’s Question: Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?
I’m pretty broad in terms of genres. I do read a lot of contemporary or paranormal books, but that could just be a reflection of the nature of YA writing. I love dystopian, because the world building is so unique and the characters are usually pretty gritty. I generally find them fascinating worlds to get lost in. I also really love issue fiction, where the character struggles over some sort of illness or problem. The characterization is usually really strong and it’s easy to have an emotional connection to a character or the story. They are also brilliant windows into other people’s lives.
