Fantasy is a genre that I’m fairly new to. For most of my life I almost exclusively read contemporary fiction (minus my sixth grade obsession with mystery books). It’s only a couple of years ago that my genre tastes turned eclectic. It was when I discovered the online book community (review sites, book blogs & booktube) that I found myself becoming anchored more in fantasy\y. Since then my bookshelves have come to house a vast selection of fantasy books as well.
While I’ve yet to read a whole bunch of books I own, I find solace in the variety of genres that exist today. They’ve opened up the creative in storytelling, even if each genre has its common tropes and clichés. Crossing over also has expanded my worldview because I’ve come to discover a lot of new ideas. Besides, the beauty of stumbling into a different genre from your own is that there’re so many new stories, reading never gets boring.
