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.

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!!!!
