So you might call me a noob when it comes to fantasy books. My first take on fantasy (a.k.a vampires and all) was Twilight. Oh wait, I read Ever before that. I think? Or was it after? ---- Shit. I sound like someone who has amnesia.
Well, either way. I wasn't that big fan of fantasy books. There is just something ridiculous about it. I couldn't take in reading about flying monkeys and flesh eating monsters. Gross, I used to say. The only close thing I've come to read fantasy books are fairytale. Which was how I fell in love with Gail Carson Levine. She writes the most magical-- anyway, back to the point. The first book I read of this genre was Twilight. At least, I think. The book ended my prejudice over fantasy books. I didn't really jumped on reading all the books but I wasn't as cynical as I used to be. I will read the book jacket instead of just passing it by like I used to.
My friend actually laughed her arse out when I told her of my sudden interest in this book genre. I know, she's mean. Anyway, I was simply minding my own business on the web a.k.a searching about books when really, I feel like these fantasy books are really interesting and I felt like Oh GOD! I need to buy all of it.
Some of the books that I want to know more about are :
Evermore by Alyson Noel
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Jessica's Guide to Dating The Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Swoon by Nina Malkin
