If you've read my blog before, you might know that I'm an eclectic reader. I gravitate toward certain genres, but I read from so many different sections of the bookstore. But there's one genre I used to barely read: fantasy. I didn't grow up reading it and almost avoided it completely. Whether it was my misconceptions about the genre or just that my interests lay elsewhere, I don't have a robust background reading fantasy.
Recently, however, I had to admit something: fantasy is now one of my favorite genres. I don't know exactly when the change occurred (although I have my suspicions, as you'll see tomorrow) but I've totally fallen for fantasy. Alexa and I have since bonded over our love of fantasy. If I'm the newbie, she's definitely the master. She's been reading it since childhood! Books in general have brought us together, but sharing a love for so many of the same books and series has sealed the deal.
Because we both love the genre and have very different histories with it, we've teamed up for Fall Into Fantasy. During this three-week long collaboration, we'll be fangirling about fantasy, reviewing some fantasy reads and sharing fun fantasy-inspired posts. Here are the books you'll be hearing about in the next few weeks:
I'm so excited to be hosting this event with Alexa, and we both hope you enjoy all we've got planned.
I never would have imagined that I'd spend almost an entire month talking about genre you wouldn't have found on my bookshelf prior to 2011, but I'm so glad that blogging has brought fantasy into my life.
We hope you'll join in by sharing your own recommendations and responses! So, let's get started: How do you feel about fantasy? Are you new to fantasy (like me) or a lifelong reader of it (like Alexa)? Who are your favorite fantasy authors or books? And if you've avoided fantasy in the past, what's been holding you back?
