Blog Hop & Follow Friday 25

Thank You Everyone who is stopping by for the Blog Hop and thank you to crazy-for-books for hosting the hop!

Book Blogger Hop

This week's Questions is...

"
Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?"

Well, I don't really read a specific genre. I just read books that sound interesting to me. That being said, I do read a lot of young adult fiction and urban fantasy books. I would say that I read young adult fiction, because its easy to relate to. Everyone can connect to what most characters go through in these books, therefore it makes them easy to relate to. I guess I read urban fantasy because it's exciting. I love the adventures the characters go on and how different the worlds are.

I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!   

This Week's Follow Friday Question is..

What makes up your non-human family??

 Well of course, my yellow lab Buttercup who was named after the Buttercup of the Princess Bride by William Goldman. Then I guess my sister's cats, we are pretty close as well. They love their Aunt Sarah.

Just hopping through... I too immerse myself in the YA books - and you're right - we've all been in some of these protagonist's shoes at one time or another. I especially enjoy losing myself in some of these wonderful worlds that the YA authors are able to create.

I don't have a specific genre either. 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.

Hi, Found you through the blog hopper, new follower. I love your answer, that's the main reason why I read YA.

I do read a lot, and as a librarian, I try to get a smattering of lots of different genres so that I can speak intelligently about book choices with my patrons, but I do find myself coming back to YA and science-fiction and fantasy in particular for a lot of the same reasons that you describe. It's a great "break" from the real-world -- although, the best books still have characters that are totally relateable, so it makes you see the world in a different way.

Just hopping by via the Hop. I love the YA genre too. I have to say, so far I haven't found one YA book I haven't at least liked haha. Hope you'll hop over to my blog!

Hey Just Hopping Through!
My answer was pretty similar - being not much older than a teenager I relate to YA fiction more than any other genre although I do read books from a few different genres as well.
Have a great weekend!

Here I am hopping on by...

I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

I agree - YA is really accessable for pretty much everyone and urban fantasy is just such a great escape.

Happy Hop Day!

Hopping by. True that YA is easy to relate to and a connection is easily established. I love that. :) Have a nice weekend!

I read mostly Young Adult and Historical fiction but I don't limit myself. If it looks interesting, I'll read it.

This is my first hop!
