It's Friday again!
This week, the question is:
Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
Well, for me it's probably a combination of paranormal, urban fantasy and romance! (Sorry if this is considered cheating, oops) Almost all my favourite books contain romance, but somehow I just don't see romance as a genre itself, you know? It always feels like a sub-genre or something haha, like paranormal romance, contemporary romance, etc.
Anyway, the book that made me fall for this combi would probably be The Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong! Anyone who's a fan of this series? I really liked how it was in a modern setting, but the characters all had supernatural abilities and most importantly, it had romance! Unfortunately the author ended it off after 3 books. The Gathering, which Ms Armstrong released recently this year, is technically the first installment of a new companion series, but I still wish we could spend more time with the characters in Darkest Powers.
Afterwards I discovered other books like the Dark Elite series by Chloe Neill, Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick and Haven by Kristi Cook, and I was a goner for sure. If you guys have any recommendations, go on and sell those books to me; I'm dying to read more of such books! Or if you want to share your FF post with me, go ahead too and leave me a comment!
P.S: YA Dystopia is steadily creeping up my list too...how can it not, when there are so many wonderful dystopian books like Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games, Lauren Oliver's Delirium, Lauren Destefano's Chemical Garden and of course Veronica Roth's Divergent!
This week's question:
“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”
Currently, according to my Goodreads shelf, I have 87 books in my TBR pile! These books are either titles I don't have but really want to read, or they have not been published yet. Everytime I add a book to the mini heap, I always feel a twinge of excitement and anticipation, but at the same time I also wonder if I'll ever get to read it in the near future.
So how many books do YOU have in your TBR mountain? Let me know!
