Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday (8)

BBH is hosted by Crazy-For-Books and FF is hosted by Parajunkee.

This week’s question is:

Q. Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

A. This one is a real toughie. I love Dystopian, and the book that made me love it was the Hunger Games, and recently, Divergent. I also love Mystery. Believe it or not, several of my favorite books are middle-grade, such as Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and the ever glorious Harry Potter series. I love fantasy and horror, and my love blossomed for this one thanks to the anthology Zombies vs. Unicorns, which remains one of my favorite books. If I keep on going, this question will have not served its purpose. :P

This week’s question is:

Q. “How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”?

A. *Sigh* I have a miserable 17 as of now. Let’s just say haven’t been shopping lately :(. But I will during the trip. Hopefully, this number can grow a lo- a little bit!


that’s it for me, folks. what is your favorite genre? leave your answers in the comments! i’d love to hear from you!

enjoy! -m

PS- Now I’m reading Order of the Phoenix! *Squee!* Whole recap to  come when I get back after the 30th. :D

Have a rather spectacularly spiffy weekend.


  1. Dystopian FTW! Very nice blog. I look forward to reading more of your posts. New follower :-)

  2. I've not gotten into dystopian too much yet, though I really want to read Divergent. I did read The Hunger Games and enjoyed it, but I couldn't muster the energy to finish the series. I enjoy Percy and Harry as well (have you met Charlie? Charlie Bone?) and almost everything I read growing up was a Mary Higgins Clark mystery.

  3. I don't read too much dystopian, but I did love The Hunger Games.

  5. The Hunger Games and Divergent were awesome! (: They pretty much solidified my love for YA dystopia. But I can't say I've read much mystery unless you count Nancy Drew :P

  7. Hi Maria, I love your blog name. I feel the same way I love so many books and genres it's hard to pick a fav. For me as long as there is some romance somewhere I'll read it, I'm a love lover. Have a great weekend!!

  8. Awesome choice! I picked Dystopian as well! Happy Hopping!

  9. New follower! Happy reading, friend!

  12. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?


    Hop on over to my blog - and find out why.
