Book Blogger Hop #1

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books.

This week's question is:
Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?

I mostly read fantasy and paranormal books. These genres are my favourites but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy other genres too, like YA.

For the Fantasy part, what draws me in is their worlds. Fantasy books have the most amazing worlds. There are built in such a way that makes you want to be part of them. I just love discovering new worlds that are well build. Lately I have been reading more YA fantasy books and I must say I love them.

Which leads me to why I love YA and what draws me in it. Even though I have been reading YA for a year and half I must say that it was the age thing that got me into it. I could relate to the characters better and the possibility that everything can happen when you're 17 played a big role. When you're a kid and then teenager you think everything is possible and I can see that in YA books.

And of course paranormal.... I never thought I would like this genre but after Twilight (which was the book that got me hooked in YA and paranormal) I couldn't help wanting more.

Fantasy is such an escape. Combining romance, fantasy, and YA is even better, but I love UF the most.

Twilight hooked me onto the paranormal genre as well! After I read that series I tried to devour anything similar to it and I've been a fan of paranormal YA ever since! I see your a fan of JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood as well, that's one of my all time favorite series:) Glad to be a new follower of yours and I hope you have a great weekend!

Stopping through on the Hop! As soon as your blog opened up I knew I wanted to be a follower! I love the Mortal Instruments and I can't wait to read The Eternal Ones! Twilight was also the book that started my love of YA!

Here I am hopping on by...

I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

I read more than one genre. But there are a few genres I don't read. Come see what I do and don't read.

I like Christian fiction because it often reflects my "morals"..and has a good story line. I also like time travel, mysteries (but not gory), and general fiction. I like some biographies as well..
