Follow Friday 4 and tgif 1

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

I don't have a favourite genre so much. I read mainly fantasy, and I especially enjoy urban fantasy. I can't pinpoint any one book. I guess Harry Potter instigated my love of all things magical and such when I was but a small child. Recently I am very much into Cassandra Clare so maybe Clockwork Angel. This is a pretty hard question to answer...but hope this kind of answers it.

And I quote: What are some of your favourite book quotes?

"...Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
"At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting." 

Jace - Mortal Instruments

The Texan turned out to be good-natured, generous and likeable. In three days no one could stand him - Catch 22


This week I have read Red Glove, low red moon, Haunting Violet, and Sleight.

That's about it to be honest. I get my degree results today. Fingers crossed.



  1. Harry Potter sure has done a lot for the fantasy genre. It's one of my favourites too. Cannot wait for the last movie.

  11. Hi! I have a difficult time deciding what my favorite genre is too. LOTR changed my reading forever though.

  12. Harry potter was a big influence towards any fantasy I could find as a teenager! I think you might like the Tairen Soul series, it's like Lord Of the Rings with romance and a lot of magic!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  13. New Follower hopping through on the Friday Follow! Have a great weekend!

    Lori @ Romancing the Darkside

  14. New follower from FF here. I LOVED Clockwork Angel! That's probably my favorite book out of all the books I've read this year, though Die for Me, Wither, and Forever are right on its tail. Have a great weekend!

  15. I don't have a favorite genre either! It's so hard to pick just ONE!

    Happy Friday!

  16. Hi I'm an old follower hopping through. I couldn't narrow it down to just one favourite genre. What I like to read changes with my mood - but lately I have been reading a lot of YA and paranormal fiction.

  20. I am definitely picking up something by Cassandra Clare. She is mentioned in so many posts this week. New follower :-)

  21. I love Cassandra Clare! I know that she's a very popular author, but sometimes they're popular for a reason, you know?
