Today's topic is Genre Fiction. I'm truly a junkie when it comes to this sort of reading. My favorite genres are fantasy (mainly of the paranormal variety) and contemporary YA & NA romance.
I've never really pondered why some of these genres don't get the same respect as novels in the more classic definition of fiction. I read what I enjoy and choose not to worry about others who may disagree with my reading choices. Reading is an escape and should be enjoyable. These are the sorts of novels that make me happy. I feel no need to apologize for that if they don't meet the approval of another reader.
In addition, there is symbolism and social commentary in these novels. They have value on both the enjoyment and thought provoking scales.
