Sometimes I wonder if I’m too picky when it comes to books. I’d like to say that I’m very commercial with my tastes, but honestly that just means that I prefer my entertainment to be highly polished.
My favorite novels have almost always been in the young adult section (and notice I didn’t say genre). The reason I’ve liked these novels is because the stories usually have to be tight and extremely entertaining for a teen to even read it.
My favorite novels for young adults have been:
1. The Harry Potter series.
2. The Warrior Heir.
3. The Mortal Instruments trilogy.
4. Eragon, and its sequel Eldest.
5. Wicked Lovely, and its sequel Radiant Shadows. (though I did like the others)
6. Vampire Academy series, including Bloodlines
8. The Grimm Legacy.
9. I Hunt Killers.
Lately though, I’ve been having difficulties in finding lots of novels that I adore. The last two novels that I loved, I’ve posted a book review on them for all my fellow rejects. And trust me that’s a really small number compared the how many I’ve picked up and tried to read.
So here are my questions for everyone. Has anyone else noticed romance has become a part of the main synopsis for too many novels even when they’re not considered a paranormal/urban fantasy romance (to be clear, all novels should have some romance in it)? Are any of you having issues finding world entrancing novels, for either guys or girls? And lastly, am I being too picky?
