This week at Read.Breathe.Relax.:

Phew, it was a busy but exciting week! 😀

FF Question: Genre Wars! What’s your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

My favorite genre? Agh! If I really had to pick one favorite genre , it would be the sub-genre of romantic fantasy (or fantasy with romance, as I like to say).

Now you want to know my favorite book in that genre?? You guys are trying to kill me with these questions today!! Ok, ok- I’d have to say a three way tie between Poison Study, Daughter of the Forest and Mystic and Rider.

I listed more of my favorite romantic fantasy authors in a guest post here.

I know I cheated but that question was evil!

What about you??

    Dystopia is definitely winning the “war” today. I have read Divergent, I loved it. I’ve not read any of the books you’ve mentioned, I’ll have to check ’em out!

  • I am certainly not above cheating on the FF questions- they are often really hard! I am also loving paranormal/fantasy romance right now as well. Thanks so much for the kind words you left on my blog, I am now following you back. Have a great weekend, and happy reading!

  • This question was evil! There’s no way to pick just one. 🙂 I’m not much of a fantasy fan, but I think ever genre is better with a love story thrown in.
    Happy Friday!

    Oh man, I don’t know if I could pick one favorite genre. I have so many favorites across the board. I adore dystopia, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal…pretty much anything. I did pick up a new book today that I’m loving: The Time-Traveling Fashionista. Such a fun story!

    (And I seriously ADORE Poison Study!!!)

  • Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I’m returning the follow and look forward to reading your reviews!


  • Mystic and Rider sounds familiar, by Sharon Shinn right? I’ve read a couple of the books in that series. Very good. I LOOOOVE Daughter of the Forest, although I think I love Son of the Shadows even more! Great choice. I’m also a new follower, returning the follow. 🙂 Love your blog design by the way.

    • Yes, I loved Son of the Shadows too! Thanks! Looking forward to chatting more about books soon! 🙂
