Today’s FF Question: How have your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen, what new genres are you in love with currently?
A: Let’s see…When I was in high school, one of my friends let me borrow The Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. Reading that book changed a lot of things for me. I went from mostly YA books to almost strictly fantasy books with lots of romance.
Since then, I read fantasy books across all sorts of genre fiction. I’m still a newbie in the paranormal sub-genre, but I really love Patricia Briggs and Ilona Andrews’ stuff. Plus, I’m back to reading a bunch of YA and venturing into unchartered territory, like a little sci fi (Across the Universe) and a handful of chick lit (Something Borrowed).
Overall, I think I’m way less “strict” in the types of books I read now than when I was in high school. Also, I think I had way more time to read then. I would read 2-3 books a week then. *sigh* Those were the days. …Oh, except I had braces and frizzy hair. 🙁
