What’s your favorite genre?

Fantasy!

Who’s your favorite author from the genre?

I honestly have a lot of favorites, but one of my top picks is Rachel Caine:

Rachel Caine

I have read ton of books by her and I love the way she crafts her stories. I also got to meet her in person at RT2015 and she is such an incredibly sweet person.

What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?

Fantasy, has the magical ability of escapism. I can travel to strange, exciting worlds or see mythical creatures from the comfort of my reading chair. It lets me escape from the daily grind.

What’s the book that started your love for your favorite genre?

This is definitely a hard question since I devoured so much fantasy literature as a child. A couple of my favorites are:

Wayside School Series by Louis Sachar

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

If you had to recommend at least one book from your favorite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?

Graceling by Kristin Cashore

It’s an action packed novel with a kick-ass heroine! I also think it’s easy to digest for non-fantasy readers, without it being too hardcore fantasy.

Why do you read?

To escape, learn, grow, educate others, share ideas!

Who do I tag?

  1. I would have said fantasy for much of my life too, but now I find that I need to be in a particular mood for it, and I don’t make space for that very often anymore. As a girl, though, I loved time travel stories (the kinds where girls fell into paintings or went down a staircase in the moonlight or something), especially when the heroines were braver and scrappier than I was. Hmmm, I guess that’s still valid! I’m reading and re-reading the Oz series right now and having fun with all the wordplay and silliness (although there are some tedious elements too) and I paused a reread of the earlier Temeraire books by Naomi Novik and need to get back to them soon.

  2. I’ve heard really good things about Uprooted which seems like a natural fit for you with your other faves listed here. But the Temeraire series changed how I look at dragons for ever and ever and… To the point where I’ve read the first book four times now, and I still enjoy it just as much! (Her Majesty’s Dragon is the title of the first, but it has another title in some countries.)
