Okay, we should all be aware of how much I love fantasy novels. So, I want to celebrate these kinds of books. I love that this tag is going around. A lot of times book tags are very general. But, I liked that his one was very specific and geared toward one genre. I found it on Zoe’s Blog.

What’s your favourite genre?
I feel as though this is going to be a very obvious answer for me. Of course I’m going to choose fantasy. It is my go to genre.
Who is your favourite author from the genre?
Ugh, why would you do this to me? There are too many fantasy authors that I love. I’m going to go ahead and cheat and give two answers. Brandon Sanderson and Leigh Bardugo are definitely my favorite authors.
What is it about the genre that keeps you pulling back?
I love that the options are limitless. I can go into a book with no expectations. Anything that anybody could ever think of is possible in fantasy novels. I love discovering new worlds with magic, magical creatures, etc.
What’s the book that started your love for your favourite genre?
I think Harry Potter is the first book that really got me into this genre. The first book came out when I was in second grade and I became hooked on the genre. This carried on with my reading A Wrinkle in Time.
If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading the genre, what would you choose and why?
I think that I would choose Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I think that it’s a great introduction to the genre. It feels grounded in reality while still incorporating fantastical elements. I believe it’s a very accessible read.
Why do you read?
I read to explore. I love to visit different places and experience different lives. Reading gives me the ability to do and see more than I ever would be able to do otherwise.
