Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read, which is a great way to meet new bloggers.
This week’s question is:
How has your reading habit changed since you were a teen? or If you’re still a teen, what new genres are you in love with currently?
Until a few years back, I didn’t read a particular genre as much. I read dystopian novels, historical fiction, popular science, mysteries and philosophical books of sorts. Whatever fantasy fiction I read back then was Harry Potter.
A year ago, I started reading a variety of fantasy fiction. Right now, my favourite genres are fantasy, urban fantasy, horror, satire and science fiction – I also a read some YA books, but not primarily. And my favourite authors are Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Diana Wynne Jones, Isaac Asimov, Mark Twain and so on! Of course, I am open to try new genres too!
Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Crazy for Books. This week’s question is:
Let’s talk crazy titles! Highlight one or two book titles that have the most interesting titles:
One of my favourite book titles is The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente – the title alone makes you want to read this book!
I also like The Unadulterated Cat by Terry Pratchett. The title makes you laugh hard, and the book makes you laugh even harder – just as I had expected!
This last title isn’t exactly crazy, but I liked it – Nightmares & Dreamscapes by Stephen King.
What are your favourite book titles?

You probably have one of the best blog names ever! I like your answer to the favorite genre-question. 🙂
Hi! New follower here! I love Diana Wynne Jones too! 🙂 She's so amazing.

That first title is certainly interesting. I think Terry Pratchett has a lot of great titles. In the end though I was attracted by who was going to be the main characters (the witches or the guards).
I like your answer and I like your blog, very nice! I'm a new follower, hehe. I've been thinking about reading books by Stephen King but I'm afraid I won't be able to sleep after, sigh…

I easily came up with five crazy book titles just by taking a fast look at my bookshelf.
All five come from the same book series. Can you guess which series it is?
Here’s a hint – The book series is a trilogy in five parts.
Hop on over to my blog for the answer – howardsherman.net

Hopping through. It's so cool that you read such a wide variety of books. I didn't read a wide variety until recently.
