I can never talk too much about my favourite genre, and now there’s a whole tag dedicated to it. I reckon by now most of you know what genre I will be featuring for this tag, after all it’s my favourite for a reason. I was tagged by Meggy at Chocolate ‘N’ Waffles and Lashaan and Trang at Bookidote. Thanks so much for the tag everyone, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

What’s your favourite genre?
Did anyone expect a different answer from me?
Who is your favourite author from the genre?
Oh I couldn’t choose just one, not because I’m horrible at making decision but because I don’t have just one favourite author. Chances are I’ll have missed someone off this list but my top five favourite authors are; V.E. Schwab, Samantha Shannon, Marissa Meyer, Laini Taylor and Sarah J. Maas.
What is it about the genre that keeps you pulling back?
All the different worlds you can discover within the pages of a fantasy book. The setting and world building are always my favourite aspects of fantasy books; I love exploring what an author has created because each world is so unique and there’s always some part I wish was real.
What’s the book that started your love for your favourite genre?
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
I’m sorry because this is a really standard and cliché answer but it’s the truth. Harry Potter is not only the series that started my love of reading but the series which hooked me on the fantasy genre where magic is real and anything can happen as long as you imagine it can.
If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading the genre, what would you choose and why?
Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab
This has got to be the series I have recommend the most out of all the others I read, because it is that amazing. The world building is beyond compare, the characters wonderfully developed throughout all three books, and the plots were fast-paced and had me hooked from the first page.
What’s more the series has finished, so there’s no agonising wait for the next book like there is for my other favourite series.
Why do you read?
The main reason is to escape on a magical adventure. I’m never going to have to search for the Deathly Hallows like Harry, or battle Kronos like Percy, or travel to Grey, Red and White London like Kell, so the next best thing is to read about their adventures and experience them that way.
