So I missed yesterday's topic so I'm going to post about yesterday's topic as well as today's topic.
Children's and Teen Fiction
I have a lot to say on this topic as most of what I read is Young Adult and Children's fiction.
I don't think you need to be a teen or a child to enjoy teen fiction. I know quite a few bloggers who are moms and are much older than me who love reading YA some of them read YA almost exclusively. I think that this genre deals with real emotions that everyone can relate to.
I for one enjoy this genre because of it's diversity. I haven't seen such diversity in adult fiction yet but that may be because I've just started reading adult fiction in earnest.
I love the world's that the authors manage to create in this genre. I can't find anything in any other genre that can compare to the world building in Harry Potter and The Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games introduced me to a new genre i.e dystopian and I like it a LOT!
Some novels I would recommend
- Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
- Under The Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi
- Elemental series by Brigid Kemmerer
- Half Blood series by Jennifer Armentrout
- Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent
- The Demon Trappers series by Jana Oliver
- Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter (I think this is classified as Middle grade but it's AMAZING!)
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
- Poison Study by Maria V. Synder
- Percy Jackson series (Middle grade)
There were quite a few genres addressed but it's almost impossible to address all so I've listed some genres that interest me below that haven't been talked about yet.
- Urban Fantasy
I'm falling in LOVE with this genre! I think it was already addressed but I want to talk about it again.
I would recommend The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews and The Shadow Reader by Sandy Lewis to everyone!
It takes a few books to get into the Kate Daniels series but it keeps getting better with every new book. Currently dying to read Book #6!
- New Adult
This genre is coming up and becoming VERY popular.
One new adult book I would recommend is Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry .
(I didn't know it was classified as New Adult till now :P)
I'm currently waiting for Frigid by Jennifer Armentrout
- Cultural/Historical fiction
Ok I'm not sure which genre this book comes under so I'm just going to say it's the retelling of an Indian epic from the point of view of the female.
It's called Palace of Illusions and it's a retelling of the Mahabharata.
