No one tagged me in this but I really liked the questions and just decided to answer them 🙂
The tag was made by the lovely Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek and they also made the very cute header image!
Feel free to participate in this tag and tag me because I would really like to hear your answers to these questions!
Also, quick thing, I’ve changed my uploading schedule again. Sorry but I’ve started posting more and I think posting three times a week would be a good commitment for me. I think will be the last time I change my schedule for a while so hopefully things don’t get to crazy for me!

1). What’s your favorite genre?
I would definitely have to say fantasy as of right now because about 75% of the books I really enjoy tend to fall into that genre.
2). Who’s your favorite author from the genre?
Omg, I have to pick one!?!?! This is a tough one but I think I would have to say, Sarah J. Maas, if only because she wrote one of my favorite books ever (A Court of Mist and Fury).
3). What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?
Sometimes the characters are incredibly boring because the author spends too much time on worldbuilding or the mythology that the story is based around. Also, some books in the genre are to closely related even though they are written by completely different people.
4). What’s the book that started your love for your favorite genre?
Probably Tigers Curse by Colleen Houck but I might have read a book series before that but I can’t really remember. Maybe it was Ravens Gate by Anthony Horowitz, which is the first book in The Gatekeepers series. I know I read those books in the very very beginning but I’m not sure which I read first.
5). If you had to recommend at least one book from your favorite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?
I would really recommend the A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy by Sarah J. Maas for someone who already likes fantasy but for someone who doesn’t want to jump right in it may not be the best choice.
For someone who is just starting out, I would probably recommend the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. If they didn’t want a long series then the Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare may be a better choice. These are good books to start out with because the reader is slowly introduced to the fantasy and it is set on earth and in a semi-recent time (The Infernal Devices is historical).
6). Why do you read?
I read because it’s one of the most stagnant things that followed me throughout my life. I’ve always been moving and whenever I would go to a new school, the library was a place that I could escape when there were breaks in the day and I hadn’t found any friends. Books were always there, even when people weren’t. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t reading and I can’t see myself ever stopping.
