Top Reads – Age 14 to 25 — Urban Fantasy (From Reactionary Tales)

Posted on Updated on


Now that I’ve been blogging about books and writing a review for everything I’ve ever read, curiosity brewed over how people choose to read what book at which age, especially when they are younger and getting familiar with different genres. With so many genres out there and so many places to look for books, I thought I’d put together my own list of when I would recommend choosing a certain book. We are now in our third week, but if you want to see the previous two, you can go to:

I’ve partnered with a good friend to add a genre and sub-genre that I’m not too familiar with — as this posting series will end up including all genres and ages. I couldn’t think of anyone better to take the lead (and she even volunteered!)… Meet Nel who blogs on her site at Reactionary Tales. We’ve been sharing book ideas across different genres and following each other’s sites for a few months now. And so it makes total sense that she’s the first guest author on this third week of the “What book to read by genre at what age?” series.

To see her post, you can click the link below. I’m very excited to share this project with her. And please go check out her site for other content, too. She has great posts focusing on books, life musings, short tales and lots of humorous blogs. Without further ado…

    I love that you decided to co-auth with this one. I love fantasy but honestly know very little about Urban Fantasy.

      Nel is great. She loves this genre. I’m definitely open to working with others… and you ALWAYS have great things to share… so if you have a genre in mind, we should work on it too!
