Questions of the Week:
Blog Hop: How many books are currently on your TBR pile?
I don't keep a specific TBR list. I have probably about 10-15 books that I own that I still need to read. But my general TBR is much larger. It basically consists of every book I hear about that sounds even vaguely interesting :-)
Follow Friday: Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
I don't have one genre that I prefer over another. I love contemporary fiction. That's always been my traditional go-to.
I also love historical fiction. As a kid, I devoured Ann Rinaldi's books. Now, my favorite author is Jeff Shaara (I just got his new one from the library. Yay!)
I increasingly enjoy fantasy and paranormal. I first got turned onto fantasy by...surprise, surprise...Harry Potter. I hated fantasy as a kid. If it had a supernatural element, I wouldn't touch it. I only picked up Harry Potter, because I was working at B&N at the time and everyone was asking about it. I am also a new paranormal lover. Twilight (big shocker, right?) introduced me to that genre. I wouldn't have gotten nearer than a cross's width to a vampire prior to Twilight. Now I can't stay away...be they werewolves, vampires, witches, etc (although vampires are my first love).
