Top 10 Tuesday | Genres I Hated at School

Top 10 Tuesday | Genres I Hated at School

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way.

In this series, I want to share with you my journey into my favourite genres. As it’s Science Fiction & Fantasy week on Goodreads, I thought there would be no better way to kick off the series than with one of my all-time favourite genres – Science Fiction!
