Why I Love...Fantasy Fiction

Why I Love Wednesdays is a meme hosted at Reflections of a Bookaholic and I'm taking part for the first time :)

"Wednesdays are often the time of the week where I have a sudden realization that the week is almost over. I'm always so thankful for this point. That's why I have created a weekly feature where I will highlight something I love that is book related. This feature is called Why I Love Wednesdays..."

My love for fantasy books probably started when I was a little kid - starting with my then favourite-author-ever: Enid Blyton. I loved her books! And I loved reading them till I was too old to read them (and I gave up only because people looked at me disapprovingly when they saw me reading a 'children's book'.) Brownies and tooth fairies and trees that talk and beds that run away, I'll never forget the wonderful and magical stories!

Then of course, along came Harry Potter! I can't even begin to describe how much I love that book. I still can't believe the girl who asked me how I could read books about witches and broomsticks.

Now, most of my favourite books are from the genre and all of my favourite authors write fantasy fiction - Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, J. K. Rowling, Diana Wynne Jones!

I am currently reading Inkheart by Cornelia Funke and it is going to be another addition to my endless list of favourite fantasy novels :) What's your favourite genre?
