TGIF is hosted by Ginger at Greads. It's about recapping on what we posted for the week, and also asking our readers a book related question. The question posted by Ginger today is?
Gateway Books: Which particular books opened you up to a new genre?
I am not sure if all of the genres I mention are true genres, but these are the first books in those genres that keep me coming back for more.
Young Adult/ Vampire:
~ The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
This was the series that got me to fall in love with young adult books, and fall in love with reading all over again. I read before this series, but not with as much passion as I do now. These were also my first vampire books, and after reading these I wanted more so I read; The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris, The Blue Blood Series by Melissa de la Cruz, Vampire Diaries & Night World by L. J. Smith, and The House of Night Series by P. C. Cast. Reading these also introduced me to The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare because Stephanie Meyer loved the books.
First Zombie Book:
~ Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
This book was good, but not quite what I was expecting. I think its because zombies are pretty gruesome and gross, but now I am loving the zombie genre.
~ The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
I loved Mythology in school when I was younger. The Goddess Test is a wonderful read and brought that love back to the surface. I can't wait to read more books like this, and the second in the series.
~ The Wicked Lovely Series by Melissa Marr
I really enjoyed this series, and the covers are beautiful. This series has made me want to read more of the Fae.
~ The Fallen Series by Lauren Kate
Fallen was my first angel book. Since reading Fallen I have read so many more. Mercy by Rebecca Lim and Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick just to name a few. I love this genre. It is my favorite next to Vampires, and if you know me you know how much I love Vampires.
