I'm a fantasy/sci fi girl through and through. If something can happen in real life, it's just not that interesting to me. I guess if I'm going to escape into a book, I want to escape big time, to a world that doesn't even exist. I love reading about quests, mythical creatures, prophecies, sorcerers, and magical lands. I've always considered myself more of a fantasy fan than science fiction, but my latest WIP involves time travel and a world-obliterating virus, so I would have to classify it as sci fi. I'm finding I'm enjoying this as much as fantasy and have started adding more sci fi novels to my TBR stack.
As a child I loved reading Zilpha Keatley Snyder's books and C.S. Lewis's Narnia series. Some of my new favorite series are Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan, Fablehaven by Brandon Mull, and Maximum Ride by James Patterson.
Okay, your turn!
