Book Blogger Hop

Time for the Blogger Hop from Crazy for Books.
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.

I didn't choose one genre... I read just about everything. :) Happy Hopping!

I am stopping by from the Hop. I'm an old follower. I have just always been drawn to the supernatural. I think anything supernatural just hot be it vampires, werewolves, faeries or whatnot. I love reading the paranormal because it is so different from anything else. Check out my Follow Me Friday and Book Blogger Hop post

Hi, just hopping on by! I like your thoughtful answer :) For me, I pretty much enjoy all of YA, regardless of the genre. I do, however, find myself drawn to certain genres more than others (I love dystopians, and not as much for paranormals - although some are great!). Oh, and I'm a new follower!

I am very open when it comes to my reading. Most likely if it is a book I want to read it. But you can tell I read to suite my moods.

Dystopian is a genre that is growing on me because I enjoyed Matched and The Legacy series by Gemma Malley. I'm also looking forward to Delirium :)
