Feature & Follow #2: The debate is over Fantasy or Realistic books!

Hello fellow bloggers and blog readers,

It's Friday and it's time to have another feature and follow blog post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View.

What is Feature and Follow Friday?

In simple words- to gain more followers either via GFC or Bloglovin'. So the very idea of having this feature and follow meme is to collect more new bloggers on the block and to make new blogger friends as well as followers. It is a great idea which was started out by Alison and  Rachel. Three Cheers for those two masterminds!

So How does it Works?

  • Follow the Featured Bloggers on their blogs
  • Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
  • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  • Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  • If someone comments and says they are following you, please return the courtesy by following them back. Spread the Love...and the followers
 This Week's Question:

 Do you like fantasy or realistic books? - Suggested by The Realm of Books

 I like reading bit of both kinds. Reality books are good for giving us an idea how we should handle it with a new perspective, and sometimes as we know that reality can be bit harsh or rather say sucks, then we definitely need to escape it, and according to me, fantasy books are the best route to escape the harshness of reality. Fantasy is not only for escaping but it can also help us to see and believe in those things which the general mass doesn't believe in. Moreover, fantasy gives us a wide dimension and horizon to build up our own universe and realistic books help us to tackle the social, personal and political dilemmas in that universe.

                                                                                                                                                                                              So according to me, reading a bit of both will be good for balance in our lives. But if I be too
honest, then I must say, I love to read fantasy books more than those realistic ones. My favorite YA fantasy series are Divergent series by Veronica Roth and Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling. 

  Divergent is all about strength and making your own choices and also it tells us how being a girl, we can rule one whole dynasty and if it requires, we will not be scared to stand upfront and lead it. Taking control of our lives- that's what I learnt from Divergent.

Harry Potter is all about love, family and friends, and it teaches us how we need to respect each and every one around us, and how we need to protect those we love, like Professor Snape. 

What about you folks? Which one do you like the most- Realistic books or Fantasy books?

  2. If I look at these books then I do love fantasy but when I count the books that I have read, I find that I have read more realistic than fantasy. :)

  5. Fantasy novels are a great escape and I think they tend to stay with us more. Saying that though, personally I tend to read more reality based fiction as I prefer it more.

  6. I definitely agree. I like a good balance of realistic and fantastical reads. My favorite genre is absolutely Fantasy but it's nice to add a Contemporary novel here and there. I've been really enjoying some more realistic books lately and I think it may be because I read a little too much Fantasy for awhile.

    Happy FF! New GFC follower.
