Book Hop (6) & Follow Friday 7

Book Blogger Hop


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

I never really thought about the reasons why I read majorly YA genre. I mean, I read other genres too, but nothing really comes close to how much I read YA. I guess, I read it because in some books I can relate to a lot of the situations the characters are going through and whenever I read about them, I feel like i'm home. Even though the book isn't real, the situations are and the character's feel pain just like any human would, like there real, and I just feel like i'm not alone. Also because I feel like I missed alot of experiences in my early teen years and even now, so since I don't experience the "cliches of teenage years" what better way to feel like I have through reading. i'm not sure what draws me to it. I guess because i'm still a young adult, and everything else I said for the first part of the question.

"What makes up your non-human family?'
Sadly, I don't have a non human family. The closest thing I have to non- human family are books :).

  3. I just found you through the Blog Hop! The chandeliers in your background are so cute! YA is my favorite genre as well - I feel like the stories move so much more quickly, and are typically more uplifting in the end.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. I read mostly YA and Historical fiction. Ever since I started my blog, I have branched out and have delved a bit into other genres.

    This is my first Hop!
