It’s Top 10 Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) and the topic is:
Top Ten Books in X Genre
So this post started a long and winding conversation with Loren and I about genres and the subcategories within YA. I won’t bore you with the details, but let me just say trying to come up with parameters about what makes a book fit in x category is both a science and an art.
I decided to go off the beaten path and do a subgenre that I absolutely love. I’ve lovingly called it ‘tough issues’. This is basically anything that is going to make you cry: death, mental illness, abuse, etc. I know so many people are turned off by books like this, but I am drawn to them. The more emotion and tears the better.
Loren decided to go with Supernatural (probably because she is joining the fandom and binge watching Supernatural over spring break!)
