This week's top five topic over at Top Five Wednesday on Goodreads was your top five genres, so in no particular order, my favourite genres to read are:
I suppose dystopian fiction is more of a sub-genre than a genre, but I love reading them so much that I had to to include it here.
2. Fantasy/magical realism
I'm not a fan of the high fantasy genre, really. There are exceptions, like I enjoyed the Lord of the Rings but for the most part, I prefer fantasy that takes part in a recognisable world, like Harry Potter, or the Rivers of London series (have I talked about those books enough yet?!)
3. Science Fiction
I am certainly a fan of sci-fi in television; I grew up in a family of Trekkies!
Sometimes you just want to read something light hearted that will make you laugh – especially after all those dystopian books I like to read! And speaking of comedy that leads us onto number five...
Yes, yes, I know the Discworld series is not a genre. But it should be. Those books are wonderful; funny and creative and always extremely enjoyable.
Who knows, maybe one day I'll be able to do a list like this without cheating!
What about you? What are your favourite genres?
