You Tell Me: What’s Your Current Genre Obsession?

You Tell Me: What’s Your Current Genre Obsession?

Posted by on Jun 25, 2013 in You Tell Me | 11 comments

There’s so much changing in the world every day. When you break it all down, you can see the massive changes happening in different divisions of it: politics, your own personal life, movies, books, technology, etc. Since we’re about wordage and make-believe here, lets talk books. New Adult was something that started to really come into its own last year, and the push hasn’t seemed to slow down, but that doesn’t mean that’s the only thing trending for you at the moment. A lot of readers are finding a new genre of book that they’re falling in love with, all because of a recommendation, or because they yearned for something a little different. Each of us go through our own phases of reading preferences, so today I want to open up the discussion to you.

For me, Fantasy always is at the top of my list. I’m a big fan of Urban Fantasy, and for years that hasn’t changed. The Maze Runner was the most recent series to take me by surprise, and that’s not really Fantasy. I mean it is, but it’s more Sci-Fi than anything else, I think. I’m not sure. Genre’s have always kind of messed me up. Regardless, I really enjoyed it, and that has made me want to try out more Sci-Fi since I’m seriously under-read in that category. In general, I seem to prefer Young Adult Fantasy to anything else. There’s something about taking the world we live in, and adding in magic and monsters that never seems to get old to me, but I’m always willing to try new things.

Today I want to hear from you. I want to know what your current obsession is? Is it Fantasy, New Adult Romances, Romance in general, Mystery, Thriller? Anything. What is your bookish guilty pleasure right now, and to support the authors you love, tell us about a book you’ve read recently that helped push this new obsession along, or the book that started it all for you.
