I'd say about 75% of the bloggers I know and love are fans of YA fiction. Seriously, you guys are representin'!! Prior to book blogging, I hadn't read much YA and figured I'd try it out.
I've read some pretty excellent ones (um, hello Dash & Lily, The Hate List & The Hunger Games) and others that many people loved and I... absolutely hated! So much so, that I felt bad writing negative reviews about these books. I didn't want anyone to think I was insulting their taste! What's a LazyGirl to do?!
My favorite genre is Mystery. Always has been, always will be. I also love Fantasy. I could go for General Fiction just about any day of the week. In fact, I'd read (and be entertained by) an Adult fiction mystery that was mediocre but would hate a mediocre YA book.
So I suppose my question is: who reviews other genres? Who reads Patterson, Dan Brown, Sidney Sheldon, Janet Evanovich, Iris Johansen etc.?! I'm leaving a ton of authors & genres out out but those were the first that come to mind. WHERE ARE YOU GUYS?? I would LOVE to read your reviews as I'm always looking for some tantalizing thrillers and gorgeous fantasies! I'm not limiting it to these genres, just anything other than YA.
Please link yourself up to this linky with your genre(s)! Leave a comment below with thoughts/suggestions etc. This post was in NO WAY meant to offend anyone who is strictly YA, I obviously love you all & think you are all very pretty!! Just looking for the more under-represented folks in the blogosphere!
