  This Week's Question:

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

Terri's Answer

If I have to choose between the two I would have to say realistic.  I like when something is feasible as it actually catches my imagination more.  A good tear jerker that pulls at my heartstrings or a controversial topic that makes me think.  That being said I am a sucker for magical realism however in my opinion that leans more towards realistic than fantasy.  You never do know what is or is not possible and it tends not to be too out there.

Kristine's Answer

I am with Terri on this one. My natural instinct would have me picking up a realistic book over fantasy. There was a time when I wouldn't read anything that couldn't happen in real life. I had no real reason for it, I just wouldn't. I then realised (thanks to Terri) that I really like magical realism and the occasional ghost in my books. Since then I have become more open minded and have ventured into fantasy on the recommendation of others. I am glad that I did because I have read some great books because of it. One thing that I have found is that I either love the book or hate it and there is no middle ground.

How about you? Do you prefer fantasy or realistic?

  1. If you would have asked me this question a year or two ago, I would have said realistic. It's hard to imagine book boyfriends as Angels, vampires, etc. Lol! Now, I actually prefer fantasies! I love reading about worlds, people, and creatures that could never exist!

  2. Hopping through. I definitely like magical realism. A perfect mixture. But I do lean towards realistic fiction for now at least.

  3. I'm with you guys! I like magical realism, it's the best of both world. Just as Kristine says if I love or hate a book isn't because the genre.

    1. Thanks for the follow!
      Following you on both :)

  6. I like reading a bit of both genre. And followed you via GFC. Here's my FF:

  7. I could finish up a contemporary romance in the morning and by that evening be deeply surrounded by werebeasts in a dark, dangerous forest. It completely depends on the mood - so I'm kinda equal between the two.

  8. Great answers! I like both (more sci-fi/horror than full on vamps and hunky werewolves etc) but do tend towards reality more.

  9. That's what I said, in a way, but I leaned more towards fantasy! I like my fantasy aspects set in our world. Basically we can say Urban Fantasy, because it's a real world setting with fantasy elements, like the vamps, ghosts, weres, etc!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  10. Glad you two take the chance on both. My FF

  11. I like both but I'm more of a fantasy person. I just need an escape once in a while.

  12. I am a Paranormal freak but I also love some great romance anything from historical to erotic so I guess both would be my answer.
