Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (20).

Book Blogger Hop

I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!


Weekly question: Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?

I primarily read contemporary YA fiction. Why? Because I was a teen not so long ago, and it's what I can relate to best. I don't need to be taken to another world or galaxy or universe filled with faeries and unicorns and zombies and vampires and werewolves to be happy. Those are occasionally good, of course. But I like learning and seeing more of the world we live in, the world I know. I like going along with a character who's been through what I've been through, to see how they handle it. I get to view the world I know from different perspectives. I enjoy observing what's around me, so to read about what I observe from a different view is sometimes enlightening.



  1. 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.

  2. That's a great answer. I read YA for the same reasons. It's a great way to see the world.

  3. Hi again ^-^ i'm already a follower. Hope you have a nice weekend!


  4. YA author and new follower from Follow Friday. Great blog!

  5. Happy Friday, Alissa!

    I read mostly YA, which I don't consider to be a real genre. I consider the sub-genres the genres that I read...if that makes sense haha

    I think I lean towards fantasy and sci-fi, but I'm trying to read more contemps!

  6. Book becomes our escape from reality regardless the genre. :) You can read my answer at Clandestine Sanctuary. Have a great weekend!
