This is a sort of thing I was writing and I thought you guys might enjoy hearing it.
Favorite book in each genre:
Romance: Any book by Dee Henderson. I’m especially partial to The Negotiator, The Truth Seeker, and True Valor. There are others, probably, but I can’t think of them just now. Also Pride and Prejudice (and Jane Austen in general).
Fantasy: Any of the Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis) (Edmund I love Edmund!) and my older sister’s fantasy stuff are the first to come to mind, but pretty much all I read is fantasy, so, you know, it’s hard to choose.
Sci-fi: Robert Heinlein. Anything Robert Heinlein. Great humor and clean. Also Madeleine L’Engle with her terrific time travel, kything (mental communication is the language of angels) and theoretic tesser stuff. The most accurate depiction of teenagers ever goes to her. (I swear, she’s like the only author who understands how teenagers feel sometimes.)
Dystopian: Haven’t read enough to choose.
Historical Fiction: Either Sun Slower, Sun Faster by Meriol Trevor (one of my favorite book friendships ever), Enemy Brothers (who loves these darling brothers, raise their hands!) [Dym] *privately freaking out over him* and Reb and the Redcoats (most innocent romance ever but still romantic and so sweet I’m gonna get cavities) both by Constance Savery, Under a Changing Moon by Margot Benary-Isbert (love this one, my heart hurts every time I finish reading it), or like, The Brothers’ War (My Side of the Story) by Patricia Hermes–okay, I need to take a breath. I’ve clearly established for you how much I love this genre.
Young Adult: The whole Meet the Austens Series by Madeleine L’Engle, because Vicky, Vicky, honey, you get me on so many levels–
Alright I clearly need to stay away from talking about my favorite books. I get carried away.
Clean and fantastic books. My best book friends which I can come back too. (Oh wait I forgot to mention The Borrowed House by Hilda van Stockum for historical and romance although there are a couple things definitely older subjects but nothing explicit or dirty really she’s just worried about her parent’s marriage. And Nazism.)
