  1. What I like best is the ability to escape the really real world in a matter of seconds to a world where magic exists and hope is alive, knowing you can return to it at any time by just opening the pages again and again.

  2. I enjoy young adult books as a whole because they remind me of a simpler time when there weren't any bills or other harsh realities to face.

    I enjoy the fantasy genre because when you read it, you're able to open the book, step inside of it and leave those a fore mentioned harsh realities behind upon entering a new realm where magic is as real as money and no one seems to question it.

    Who wouldn't want to live in a 'fantasy world'? Anything is possible, no dream is too big, it's perfection.

  63. My favorite thing about the fantasy worlds and characters in the books I read is the endless possibilities. No two stories are ever alike because authors are free to use their imagination and make anything possible. We have so many rules in real life that its nice to have a world to escape to that doesn't necessarily have rules.

  64. Young adult genre has problems that seem bigger and more creative than the problems in adult novels. This makes for more breath-stopping entertainment.
