It's been a couple weeks since I've done a Follow Friday, but I'm glad I got in on this one! The feature this week is Steph Likes Books, a blog I personally am very excited about (being a fan of all things YA myself), and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison! Hope everyone hops around to see all the great blogs that are out there :)
Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?I didn't really read as a teen (unless you count those awful books they made us read in school :/). Actually, the only books I probably read back then were the Harry Potter books--which isn't too shabby of a start lol! I mean, does it get any better than J.K. Rowling??
My reading habits really changed when I realized that reading can be a very pleasurable experience, that novels really could transport you to a different world, that words could create pictures just as vivid as the ones we see on the big screen. Currently, I'm very into YA (of course), urban fantasy/paranormal/steampunk (again, obvious), but I'd really love to find some really good contemporary fiction, YA or adult. I know there are fantastic books set in the real world, without all the superpowers/magic and whatnot, but when I go to the store, I'm just not seeing them. In that category, I love Meg Cabot, Elizabeth Scott, Susan Elizabeth Phillips etc. If you have any recs (in any category), I'm all ears ;)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
