Talk to me Tuesday #5
My favorite genre is definitely fantasy. While I may go back and forth on preferring epic fantasy or urban fantasy depending on my mood, I always love of a touch of magic in my reading.
Growing up, I never read contemporary fiction if I could help it. Mysteries, sure, but a straight story of people just like me... what was the point? My little sister never read fantasy, only contemporary. We've both expanded our horizons since then, but I still love fantasy best of all. I've especially started reading more contemporary fiction since I decided to become a librarian, since it is very popular and I need to be able to recommend. I've fallen in love with plenty of realistic fiction, but my heart is always more open to fantasy novels.
I think it is just because magic and fantasy creatures are awesome. There is so much to work with and I love seeing what each fantasy author comes up with!
