Whatever the genre, people read for entertainment and escapism. Readers want to be taken away from their own life or world. This doesn’t necessarily mean fantasy or sci-fi, but could be why they are so popular. Genres and subgenres have evolved with time and we are seeing the product of creative imagination.
What do you like to read and why? And if you write YA, maybe you could leave a guideline or tip for me. I'd love to read your comments.
