      1. Although I would say Young Adult and Middle Grade even though they’re *technically* not considered genres, I would say historical fiction and fantasy. I love reading about the past or magical worlds. I’ve honestly lost my love for dystopian a bit last year since the books I’ve read repeated the same pattern. But I’m glad you enjoy it!

      2. I can see the repeated pattern with dystopian. Historical fiction and fantasy are good genres, but I can be kind of picky about fantasy because sometimes the authors are too stuck in telling about the world instead of advancing the plot.

  1. Haha thanks for fixing the Author of The Little Prince. I have fixed it on the original post, but a bunch of people participated in the tag before I learned it was wrong 😦 I just copied the list from Amazon so I am surprised they had it wrong.

    Why won’t you read Lolita? I don’t plan on reading most of these, but why specifically won’t you read that one?
