Weigh in Wednesday (2): Contemporary vs Fantasy

Contemporary vs Fantasy

This week’s Weigh in Wednesday topic is : Contemporary vs Fantasy. I’m never a fantasy fan, so my answer is obviously contemporary! I love contemporary because it talks about real life, what is going on on the real world, what real people face in real life, and what they do about it. By reading contemporary I got so much valuable lessons about the world, life and people. Still, I sometimes read fantasy, but only for a refreshing, usually after reading some ‘tough’ classics…

How about you? Are you a contemporary or a fantasy?

  1. I'm with you in this... hehehe

  2. I chose fantasy for just the opposite reason! lol but you can read my longer response at WIW Happy Reading!

  3. Looks like you prefer classic contemporary!! Beautiful blog!! I like classics, too. I was thinking hi-school drama as "contemporary" although, I prefer Fantasy no matter what. Usually. I'm a new follower!!

    1. Thanks for visiting & following, Laura. I'm already your follower too.
      Yes, although there are some classics fantasy, but I still prefer the contemporary.

  4. Huh, I do the opposite, I read contemporary when I need a refresh from some other genre ;) so I'm all for fantasy, although I do love reading contemporary, too :)

  5. I am a fantasy addict my I completely understand your reason I'm the opposite though!

  6. Sorry it took a while to get back to you - at least I'm in time for tomorrow! :)

    Good points about why you prefer contemporary. It's all personal taste I guess but sometimes it is nice to vicariously live the lives of others through contemporary literature!
