This is My Genre, Tell Me Yours Book Tag

This tag is going to be super fun because I can talk and talk and talk about my favorite genre. Obviously, I wasn’t tagged but I saw the tag done by Beth@ Reading Every Night and decided I had to partake in the fun too. I hope you will enjoy reading about my favorite books and let me know yours.

Rules:

  • Credit Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek as the creator of the tag. Either use the created tag name graphic or create your own and link back to his blog.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Tag as many people as you want.

What’s your favorite genre?

Even though my reading habit started with mystery, my all time favorite genre is Fantasy. Always. Once you discover this, there is no going back.

Who is your favorite author from the genre?

Many many of them. It’s so hard to choose when I find awesome books every single day. I love J. K. Rowling, J. R. R. Tolkien, Cassandra Clare, Robert Jackson Bennett, N. K. Jemisin and Leigh Bardugo. Please remember this is not an exhaustive list, but my most favorites.

What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?

World building. I love reading books which let me escape from our reality into other magical worlds, feel myself to be a part of all the adventures and make me not want to come back.

What’s the book that started your love for your favorite genre?

The two most clichéd answers ever. Harry Potter series and Lord of the Rings trilogy. One has magic, the other has elves – what more can a girl ask for. I just fell in love with these worlds and I don’t think I have ever been back.

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?

The Divine Cities trilogy by Robert Jackson Bennett. The world building is one of the best and extensive I have read in recent times, the plot is awesome and the characters are just brilliant. In between all this, it has inherent messages about slavery, oppression, faith and compassion. I think it’s a perfect fantasy series for anyone to start.

Why do you read?

In my personal life, I am so lazy and don’t even like getting up from my couch but reading gives me an opportunity to go on adventures, to live my life through the characters in other awesome worlds and also make long lasting friendships with fictional people.

I Tag: Everyone. I am so excited to read about your favorite genre!!!!

  1. Oh yay another fantasy lover! 😀 Great answers for this tag, and I’m glad you decided to take part in this one too.
    Cassandra Clare is a brilliant author, I’m currently reading her Infernal Devices series and I am loving it. I can definitely see why she has such a huge following, more so than when I read the first half of The Mortal Instruments series.
    J.K. Rowling and Leigh Bardugo are two other favourite authors of mine.
    Again great answers for this tag! 😀

    1. Thank for doing the tag first.. I definitely have to pick up some books that u mentioned coz I haven’t read most of them.
      Cassandra Clare’s later books are definitely better.. she keeps improving with every one of them… If u ever read Lord of Shadows from the Dark Artifices series, u will know what I mean.. it’s her most brilliant book till date..
      Rowling I guess is everyone’s fav.. There will never be anything like HP…
      But I just read the Grisha trilogy this week and I have to agree, Leigh Bardugo is amazing and I am so upset that I didn’t read these books earlier..

      1. Well I’d highly recommend anything I put in my version of the tag! All favourites of mine. 🙂
        I still have a long way to go but I seem to love each of her books more than the one before so by the time I get to Lord of Shadows I’ll be a die hard fan.
        Oh if you enjoyed the Grisha trilogy I’m sure you’ll love Six of Crows. It’s incredible. 😀

        1. I am hoping so too.. I bought Six of Crows a couple of weeks ago because it had great reviews and then decided to dive into the Grisha trilogy first… now that’s done, so it’s time for this … I also have Leigh’s new short story collection Language of Thorns and its such a gorgeous book, I would probably just stare at it rather than read..
