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:
- Fantasy, particularly High Fantasy (MG, YA, and Adult)
- YA Contemporary
- Classics, particularly from the Romantic & Victorian periods
- 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?
