My Reading Style

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads!

This week's question:

Which genre, authors, or particular books do you think people associate with your reading style?

I'm not sure what other people associate with my reading style! But I know what my reading style is, so I'll tell you that:

Favorite Genres:
  • Fantasy, particularly High Fantasy (MG, YA, and Adult)
  • YA Contemporary
  • Classics, particularly from the Romantic & Victorian periods

Favorite Authors:
  • Patrick Rothfuss
  • John Green
  • Stephanie Perkins
  • Neil Gaiman
  • Jane Austen
  • Brontë sisters

I like pretty much anything YA, but fantasy and contemps are my favorite. Secondary YA favorites would be science fiction (dystopia, steampunk, horror, space opera, whatever) and historical fiction. My favorite adult genre by far is high fantasy, but I do like some urban fantasies and the occasional mystery/thriller. As far as classics, I also have a soft spot for Mythologies, Shakespeare, and Southern American Lit. I've got a lot of favorite authors aside from the ones listed above, but I had to stop somewhere and I think those are a good representation of what I like. If you really want to delve any deeper into my literary tastes you can check out my Goodreads Shelf.

What genres/authors/books would you have associated with me? The same as what I've shared today, or is it different? I'd be interested in hearing what other people think about my reading style. And what is your style of reading?


  1. Those are definitely some great authors to be associated with! I love YA in general, too, so, glancing at my book shelves, it would be difficult to pinpoint anything specific for myself. The awesomeness of YA and how varied it is! :D

    Happy Friday!

  2. I'm glad you went this way on this question. It was so hard for me to answer for others so I just went with what critiques think of my reading style.

    Have you spiced up your design? It's beatimus!

    New follower,

  8. When I think of you & your blog, contemps come to mind! :-)

  9. I definitely think contemporary when I think of you, though you have definitely opened my eyes to some great adult fantasy novels, too. And it's because of some of your reviews of contemp YA novels that I'm actually giving that subgenre a try. :0)

  10. Oh yay another fantasy lover! :) I adore Pat Rothfuss, his books are fantastic, like really really gripping, and he's funny to boot.

    New follower than, thanks for stopping by! :D
