My weaknesses when reading for pleasure are young adult fiction and fiction series. I, of course, really get off on young adult fiction series! I have probably written about this love before, but as I haven’t posted in 18 months I figure I can get away with it.
My love of teen fiction sort of existing when I was actually a teen, though I didn’t explore a lot – just read my brother’s stuff. At that stage one of my favourites was the White mountains trilogy by John Christopher – and it still is.
It was in Uni as part of a librarianship selective that I rediscovered young adult fiction, especially science fiction and science fantasy. Favourites include the Dark is rising sequence by Susan Cooper, the Tomorrow series by John Marsden, Harry Potter of course, and the Chronicles of Narnia (which I first read in my 40s).
I have found that, unlike many I know, I can happily re-read books I enjoyed time and time again.
This is not to say I don’t read adult books (no, not those!!!!) – but the ready flow of language and action is very addictive and a great way to pass train trips!
