Armchair BEA Day 2 - Genre Fiction

Armchair BEA Question of the Day:  "What draws you to a specific genre?  Do vampires, zombies, or witches float your boat?  Or, do you prefer the heat of romance? Recommend your favorite genres and/or books and help build reader TBR shelves a bit more!"



I love YA, Sci-Fi, Paranormal/Urban Fantasy and will also read just about anything that catches my attention or has an interesting premise.


- I love YA because there are so many exciting stories in this genre and sometime you’re very surprised at where a story goes.  There are always a myriad of different characters and always something new.
- I adore Sci-Fi because well I grew up on Star Trek so stories set in space really intrigue me.  I think these stories are also great because they let you discover new worlds/think about new ideas.
- Paranormal/Urban Fantasy is one of my favorite genres because of the world building and imagining all the what-ifs of what you would do if you were thrown into the situations of the main character.  

My Favorite Books so far this year are a pretty good mix:






My Favorite Series that I recommend to Everyone:

  1. I agree everyone should read Harry Potter!
    I must admit that my curiosity on Seraphina is growing. I am not much of a dragon or other creatures reader but the cover looks great and I have read so many good things about it already.
    Thanks for sharing your favorites!

    1. Exactly, Harry Potter is just a really epic story. :)

      Seraphina is definitely an intriguing read with a superb take on dragons. I really love the cover of the book too.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Harry Potter! I must admit that I didn't like Seraphina, but I hope to give it a second try. Based on all the reviews I've read, I think this was a case of "reading at the wrong time"

    1. Yeah I love Harry Potter. Seraphina's should be worth a second try it might take a while to get into but the world is so epic.

  4. The only Harry Potter book I had trouble getting through was Order of the Phoenix. The rest were devoured in a day or two. I had seen the cover for Invisibility, but hadn't checked out the summary. I just did and it is so up my alley. I can't wait to get my hands on it. Thanks for recommending.

    1. Hi, yeah HP #5 was a bit hard to get through.

      Glad you're going to check out INVISIBILITY (here's hoping you love it), it's so good and has such unique duel perspectives/characters. Thanks for stopping by. :)

    1. Nice glad to find someone else that loves these books too. :) You should check out INVISIBILITY, it's so very good.

  7. Eleanor and Park!! I still have yet to read it and I'm scared it won't live up to the expectations. Harry Potter is always a favourite, haha. I have to go check out Invisibility, I have his other book, Every Day, which I haven't actually read yet.

    1. Hi, yeah just go into the book blind and see what you think. I think it has a really great flow and is a tremendous use of duel points of view. :)

      INVISIBILITY is just so quotable and has a really intriguing story.
