    I try to spread myself as widely as possible (to stop myself from getting bored by YA fiction), but I often come back to the same kinds of books. YA fantasy is one, as well as horror.

    So what do you read?

    YA Fantasy & YA Science Fiction. I do read the occasional horror but not very often. That's pretty much it for me

    Horror.

    Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft, R.L. Stine.

    I also just recently found this story called "The Spider." I read 3 times in one day! It was great.

    Does anyone think why sci-fi and fantasy are so popular in the YA market?

    I've picked up some King, though I've never read Lovecraft. I must pick up his work soon. My first leap into horror was with Darren Shan, who got boring after a while.

    I'm currently reading a lot of short horror stories. I'm reading "The nameless city." By H.P. Lovecraft right now. But I must say, I'm not so thrilled right now.

    Thats a good question Cadence. Maybe it's because because youths are fascinated in other worlds and futuristic technology. I know I am!

    I've only read horror once (except short stories in school) when I found a really good zombie novel. It wasn't very scary though.

    Yeah, I don't find zombies scary. I prefer creepy atmosphere to monsters chomping on your flesh.

    I've never thought much of King. My tastes run to fantasy and SF (mostly adult these days, rather than YA), with a smattering of lit fic. Neal Stephenson and David Foster Wallace are probably my two favorite writers, Glen Cook and Gene Wolfe running not far behind. And I recently fell in love with Joan Didion.

    If anyone is looking for a good zombie novel, try Mira Grant's Feed.

    Just tried reading some King. Briliant style, too adult for me. Yay for being sensitive!

    To, you know, sex.

    Also picked up some awful YA rubbish. It was just... eugh...
