Follow Friday

Follow Friday is hosted by Rhiannon at Parajunkee's View.

This week's question: Genre Wars! What's your favourite genre and which book in that genre made it your favourite?

My answer: Honestly, I like a little bit of everything so this question is a really hard one for me. However, my weakness with books is always the paranormal genre and if there's anything with paranormal in it, I'll soooooooo there! But I'll go with something a little different this week and say my favourite genre at the moment is the steampunk kind! For those who don't know steampunk or what it's all about, well . . . you're really missing out on this awesome genre and what it has to offer. It's usually set in the Victorian era and has a blend of fantasy elements, whether that maybe vampires or simple machinery. It's whole lot of fun. I think my favourite steampunk book would have to be either Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare and/or The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge -- both of whom are fabulous authors and nail the steampunk genre!

So, what's your favourite genre?

Have an awesome weekend you guys!

  2. Like you I don't have a favorite genre. Why ask such a cruel question? I like a little of everything. I can't choose just one!

    I took a little peek at your blog. I like it :) New follower!
