"Why do you read the genre that you do?
What draws you to it?
My favorite genre to read is contemporary YA fiction. I especially love writers who use prose (i.e. Ellen Hopkins, love her!!!). I think the reason I am most drawn to this type of book is because I grew up in a small town, with limited knowledge of what kind of "bad stuff" is out there. It always amazes me when I read about how bad some teens have it, and their ability to overcome the hardships their are exposed to.
I have also started to love some science/dystopian fiction like Michael Grant's Gone Series and Emma Clayton's book The Roar (super excited about its sequel, The Whisper). I like comparing that world to the world we live in. I especially like using books like this for book discussion groups.
