Book Blogger Hop (26) and Follow Friday (14)

This week's Book Blogger Hop question is...

How many books are currently in your to-be-read pile?

Well, the physical pile I have is currently fourteen books high, but my to-be-read list is approximately 500 books long. It'll take me a long time to get through that list, but I should be through with that pile in a little over half a month, especially with school ending in a week.

This week's Follow Friday question is...

What genre is your favorite and what book made it your favorite?

It's hard for me to choose between contemporary and dystopian, so I'll choose both. I don't remember what book got me into contemporary because I've always liked it for as long as I can remember, but I do remember what got me into dystopian. When I was in middle school, my best friend's dad recommended 1984 to me, so I gave it a try and loved it. Since then, I've adored dystopian novels.

Hopping through. I'm not a big dystopia fan but there are definitely books in that genre that I enjoy.

I'm enjoying dystopian more and more. I want to read more of them because every time I give them a try, the experience is simply amazing.

I understand your struggle...it's so hard to pick out one favourite genre because YA has so many wonderful genres! Contemporary has always been one of my favourites, whereas I only fell for dystopian after The Hunger Games and Divergent.

That's funny that is was 1984 that got you into dystopian. I got that book for Christmas last year and I'm slowly getting though it. Dystopians have always made me sad. After reading The Handmaid's Tale, I wasn't sure I was prepared to ever read that genre again. But I'm slowly coming back.

Thanks for hopping by.

All of this dystopian love makes me so happy. And that is a massive TBR list - good luck with getting to all of those! I think at some point I need to just have a wish-TBR list so it doesn't seem so intimidating.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm following you as well now. I remember reading Animal Farm in middle school, then moving on to 1984. I also loved The Giver back then, so although I didn't know what it was called then, I guess I've been a dystopian fan for a long time as well.

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! New follower here!

My fave genre is historical romance. Love it!

I have hundreds in my TBR pile too! It's ridiculous!

Happy Blog Hop!
