FangirlNina (spocktapus210) | 742 comments Sci fi and fantasy! Also the occasional contemporary or historical fiction.

Favorite Genre.... On Here? doesn't it almost have to be YA!

just kidding, I love YA but I'm also a big fan of fantasy and science fiction. (maybe someday those two will actually be separate as anyone who reads them will tell you they're not the same.)

Also like some horror

I always try to lean towards the mature side of YA - gritty contemporaries, dark dystopias, depressing fantasies, brain-shattering sci-fi, horrific historical fiction... that's the stuff I read for pleasure most of the time. I'm not emo, I swear! I own a light pink jumper with horses and flowers on it!

I love those types too I've read unwind. Any other recommendations?

I would recommend the Escape from Furnace series- very creepy and intense as well!

I would also recommend Human.4 (Point 4, #1) by Mike A. Lancaster . The cover is enough to let you know that it's a pretty creepy book. There's one after it, but I haven't read it yet. And if you feel like you want more creepy stuff, I would say you check out Paolo Bacigalupi. I know his short stories from Pump Six and Other Stories by Paolo Bacigalupi are not for the weak.

Okay thanks. Not totally creepy but I cool weird. Dystopia

Maya (ladycarstairs31) | 504 comments I like fantasy, some paranormal, and dystopia. But I enjoy reading all genres that fall under the YA umbrella, as long as they contain good books!


message 14: by Rachel (new)

Rachel  (APCB Reviews) (gr8rach) Fantasy at the moment! Detesting contemporary. Liking paranormal. Avoiding dystopian

There are actually too many dystopian books right now...

True! It's still considered the new 'it' genre but I feel like it's getting kind of overused tbh


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Maya (ladycarstairs31) | 504 comments It's not as popular as it used to be in the past few years though (or maybe it's just me not reading as many)...
