you are what you read


image from Ginger at GReads!

you guys, this is my fave meme. and it's not just because i think Ginger is amazing or because tons of bloggers are linking up each week or because the image is so cute. it's not even because i love the word meme (which i pronounce may-may in my head). it's because some seriously rad questions are asked and everyone provides some insightful and funny responses. yeah, it's pretty cool.

this week the lovely Ginger asks:

Book Associations: Which genre, authors, or particular books do you think people associate with your reading style?

well, judging by my 'genre breakdown' widget on the side of the blog, i'd say i'm definitely a Fantasy Genre type of gal. i think for the most part, people would agree that if it has some sort of supernatural element or twist, i'm game to give it a read.

but for funsies, let's look at my top five labels for book review genres, shall we? yeah, we shall.

1. Fantasy. yeah, i dig the fantasy. this includes sci-fi fantasy, btw. and vampires and zombies and all that jazz. i like the supernatural, i like the paranormal, and i like the creativity of world building and mythos involved in that style of writing. 
2. Mystery. i like to keep guessing! surprise me with twists and turns and you've won my bookish heart.
3. Coming of Age. as i've said before, this is my favorite thing about YA novels. starting out as one person and discovering your true self along the way. i love the transformation that's almost inherent in YA literature and i never cease to find it inspiring and enjoyable.
4. Historical Fiction. not so  much as of late, but i do enjoy a period piece. looking at you, Pride and Prejudice!  oxoxo
5. Romance. this one really surprised me. i think it mostly has to do with the fact that so many books include romance in some form or fashion. or maybe that i've been getting pressured into reading more contemporary romances as of late...not that i'm complaining!

what about you? which genre's define you as a reader? are there any that you're hoping to branch out into in the future? 

be sure to link it up over at GReads! today and see what others had to say!
