  1. My favorite genre is Dystopian too! :D So many great reads out there in that genre that it's almost all I ever read now. Hunger Games is one of my favorites, along with Delirium, Birthmarked, The Line, and Across the Universe (which I got nearly all of my friends hooked on!)

    GO DYSTOPIA! :D

  3. I love dystopians, too, but have recently started reading a lot of contemporary YA books. Like right now I'm reading Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott. I also always like the paranormal, science fiction, or fantasy genres.

  4. While I also love dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction I also am a fan of regional lit. I'm from WV but I enjoy reading books set anywhere in Appalachia. Some of my favorites are: Back Roads by Tawni O'Dell, Screaming With the Cannibals by Lee Maynard, Unquiet Earth by Denise Giardina and Look Homeward Angel by Thomas Wolfe.

  5. I've become really fond of time travel books, but not like the epic sci-fi kind. More like in Timeless, and Always A Witch. I like the contrast different time periods make. I also kind of like dystopias as well for that reason.

  6. I'm really loving Dystopian. Matched and the HG all the way!

  7. I found myself to be drawn to Dystopian books lately too... I think it's because after reading one good Dystopian, I would look up other similar books too and keep it up until I feel like I need to read something else entirely different.

  10. Well, you read my mind. I love dystopians. I had to re read Inside Out before I could get into Outside In. It's really fun. I also adore periods. The one I recently read that I really enjoyed was Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran.

  11. I'm a HUGE fan of Dystopians and Historical Fiction, however, I've recently come to realize that I absolutely LOVE books with "Magical Surrealism" or books with "Surreal Magic Realism" - books that combine the ordinary, with the not-quite-ordinary, but not quite paranormal.

    For example, "The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake", which combines a dysfunctional family drama with a young girl's bizarre ability to TASTE emotions. And "Like Water for Chocolate" in which Tita can pour her emotions into the food she makes, causing the person consuming it to feel accordingly. "The Mistress of Spices" where the spices speak to Tilo, who prescribes them to people according to the sage advice that the spices give her. And my favorite, "The Time Traveler's Wife" in which a man can travel forwards and backwards through the parallel universes of his life, and is how he acquires the love of his life.

    What I love about these novels is that they are really about every day, realistic issues such as family drama, love, joy, sadness, suffering (etc), and include real people - but with a hint of magic, the entire story takes a whole new facet which is both new and riveting to experience.

    Thank you so much for hosting this amazing giveaway every week! :)

  27. My favourite genre would have to be paranormal romance. Shapeshifters have a soft spot in my heart. I haven't gotten a chance to call dystopian one of my fave because i haven't read any novel but its one of the first in my to-read list.

  29. I've recently come to love historical fiction. I always had a thing for it, but now realize that it's my genre of choice!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dystopian books are definitely some of my favs! I loved Wither, Matched, The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, and I'm still trying to get a hold of Delirium. I'm also really into fantasy/sci fi books like Darkness Becomes Her, The Bartimaeus Series, Witch and Wizard series, Leviathon, Inheritance Cycle, and others like those.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've been reading a lot of fairy books recently. I love fairies! Anything fantasy I love. Dystopian is great, too! I recently read Matched, Across the Universe, and Delirium is on my TBR!

  32. Im really liking the contemporary and dystopian lately. I think Dystopian started with Hunger Games before then I didn't enjoy them at all.

    ReplyDelete
  33. In my popular fiction class we did a unit on fantasy and I find myself really getting into them now. I'm been picking up a lot lately and so far I've really liked Tamora Pierce's Tortall books, Dawn Cook's Truth series and Christopher Paolini's Eragon books.

  36. I've recently discovered an interest in historical novels set in Asia, particularly in Japan and Korea. I love reading about those two cultures.
    And I'm also newly interested in urban fantasy and books about fallen angels.

  42. I love books about other worlds (fantasy, I guess?), they could be anywhere, in any time. Because there are different places and people, there are different rules and different problems. My favorites are Graceling and Poison Study! They provide the greatest escape from everyday life.

    I'm also a big fan of paranormal and urban fantasies, like Nightshade, Wicked Lovely; they take place in our time but not just in our world.

    I loved the Hunger Games and Forest of Hands and Teeth, I haven't read many other Dystopians, but I really want to read Matched and Delirium!

  43. I have no idea :S
    To be honest I love books of all genres. I love dystopian books, but I'm also reading a lot of books right now that would just go under Fantasy and Paranormal Romance (I think). To name a few; Graceling and Fire by Kristin Cashore, Paranormalcy by Kiersten White and Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong.

    ReplyDelete
  44. My fav period books are almost always set in the 20s. I love BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS and VIXEN! OMG SO GOOD!!!!! :)

    As far as dystopian, I gotta say I'm still a HUNGER GAMES and MAZE RUNNER girl.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I looovvvveee Fairy-tale retellings, but I'm not sure whether I would call that fantasy, because I don't really like fantasy anymore.... :) I adore fairytales, though....3 days until "Entwined" comes out-Eeee!
    I, too, am a big fan of Dytopians as well. My favs are "The Giver" (hehe-it started it all!) and Hunger Games!!! I just died from mockingjay though, that made me really bitter... :P

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've been really drawn to Dystopian's lately too. Hunger Games, Matched were also ones that I loved, and Across the Universe too. I haven't read Wither or Delirium yet, but I want to sooooo bad! :D I've totally gotten hooked on YA Contemporary too, Anna and the French Kiss, Perfect You, and Along for the Ride are a few of my favourites! :D And another genre I've really fallen in love with are paranormal stories focusing on faries/faeries/fey, The Iron Fey, The Replacement and The Modern Faerie Tale Books are some of the ones I've loved :D
    I also just read Hunger and Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler and fell totally in love with them! I guess I'd put that in just Paranormal, which I've been totally hooked on for a while now haha, either way they were amazing :D

    Great question :)

  47. With so much to read and since I like most genres, I don't seem to have one that I read most often. The closest I've gotten to reading most often lately is paranormal romance. That's only because I have a lot of them in my TBR piles and am doing on-line reading challenges for the year and they fit the categories of the month.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm a huge Dystopia fan too. I loved The Hunger Games, Delirium, Birthmarked, Across the Universe, and The Chaos Walking trilogy. I'm also drawn into YA contemporary novels including Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, Jandy Nelson and Melina Marchetta's works.

  51. Ever since I read The Hunger games I've been hooked on dystopians, too. Pretty much every one I've read so far I have really liked. One of my recent favorites is Delirium. There are so many more I want to read, though. I'm looking forward to starting the Chaos Walking trilogy soon.

  57. I am always drawn to historical fiction, it's my favorite (especially anything Jane Austen-related), but lately, I've been reading a lot of YA paranormal (which tends to be better than adult paranormal, I've found).

  72. I have been reading A LOT of Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic lately. There have been so many released in the past year and i'm really taking advantage of that!
    I also have a weakness Romantic Comedies and Mysteries.. among other things.
    I hope I'm not too late for this week.

  73. I think a good dystopian thriller takes you to a new place, but allows you to see your own world in the reflection.
    Wild Child Publishing just released Against Nature by John Nelson, a dystopian thriller about a global pandemic. The disease is 100% fatal and there is no cure. One scientist believes it's caused by an extraterrestrial dust mite brought back to earth by a shuttle astronaut. The book examines our current world (and events of the past 10 years) and super imposes them on this new crisis to create a dystopian world. It's not post-apocalyptic like Hunger Games. but going from now into the apocalyptic world.
