We all find our own unique paths into the genres that we love and wind up there for many different reasons. We could have discovered a favourite genre when staying up late one night and found ourselves absorbed in a strange film that we just couldn’t stop watching. Maybe we came to a genre through a relative, mentor, or friend who recommended a book that we just *had* to read. Sometimes the genres we come to love are ones that we disliked so much as children and teenagers because we were forced to read books, watch films, and act out plays that we found boring at the time but grew to love later on in life.
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!
