Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop

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?

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...
This is my Follow Friday. Please, feel free to pass by and have a look.

Hope you have a great weekend,

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 –

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