Okay, for my blog I wanted to try something new. Something that would let me interact better with people. Something where I could try to express my feelings and find out different people's opinions. So, what is better than to start a discussion right on this blog!
My first discussion is going to be on:
Not too big of a discussion, but I didn't want to start a war on the internet about love triangles in books, so I'm starting off small. Though, I probably will find myself in that situation one day, just not today.
Moving on, I wanted to discuss genres mainly because I feel like I don't know many others preferences. Personally, I like most any genre, as long as it is young adult and fiction. I love anything from dystopian to historical fiction. I'll discuss what genres I USUALLY find myself reading, and what I enjoy reading the most.
This genre is, in fact, probably one of the most known genres in the teen world. Simply put, paranormal romance has, well, romance, which most ANY teen LOVES to read, including myself. Also it has an unreal characteristic quality to it, which fills your head with werewolves, vampires, and faeries. It transports you to a totally fictional, yet wonderful, different world. I, myself, have enjoyed this genre quite alot, though my own tastes have changed over the years. Paranormal romance is the genre for most younger teenagers, mostly because it seems like a good genre to start off. However, I have noticed( this is just myself, again) that I do get bored with the same vampire or werewolf books( this is the reason why I say this genre isn't minded by younger teenagers!). Still, I enjoy picking up a good one every now and then.
Immortal Rules The Raven Boys Bloodlines Splintered Nightshade
Fantasy is probably one of the, most incredible genres out of all the ones I can think of. Fantasy usually takes place in a whole 'nother world and time, which I love alot. However, my true love for this genre comes from the creations I have read in fantasy. When I think of some of these things, I just can't fathom how the writers came up with these ideas. I can only imagine it took ages to perfect! Which is why I have the deepest respect for this genre. I have to say that fantasy is a very wide one, so it varies ALOT!
Falling Kingdoms The Girl of Fire and Thorns Seraphina Shadow and Bone Throne of Glass
I have to admit that at one point in my life, I absolutely HATED this genre. I thought it was boring, and there was usually little romance in it. Yet, over the years, I have come to appreciate the vivid desciptions of historical fiction, and I have also gained some knowledge of the past at the same time. The plot is usually very well planned out in these books, and although I have found historical books are slow moving, I still very much enjoy them! Now this is my most FAVORITE genre of all...funny isn't it?
The Diviners Grave Mercy The Book Thief Venom
I do dread talking about this genre for I feel like I might offend people..."chews nails"... I first want to say that I don't intend to offend anyone! Okay, continuing on. Let me tell you first, that I dislike contemporary, very, VERY much. For me, whenever I start reading a contemporary book, I have extreme high hopes and maybe that is the reason why I get disappointd so much. However, I usually do like the beginnings of contemporary books, but I usually cannot stand going any further into them. I almost ALWAYS predict what will happen, so I guess that is what annoys me the most: it doesn't have any suspense in it. Another reason is that it becomes...well, cheesy to put it in moderate terms. It gets kissy kissy, they break up, and then they get back together...again, do not be offended by my opinions! I can think of about ONE series that fit in this genre that I really enjoyed.
Perfect Chemistry Rules of Attraction Chain Reaction
This genre seems to be getting an awful amount of attention lately, and don't get me wrong, I actually enjoy this genre alot! I just feel like lately it has been become more and more popular! But, I don't blame them, since people like apocalypes. Equation: people like=popular book. I don't feel like recommending anymore books, so just ignore for now!
Okay, that's it. It's extremely late right now, so I'm sorry if I may have said something stupid at one point or mispelled something...forgive me! I'm getting tired..."rubs eyes"...Tell me what you think in the comments! Discuss!
