It’s time for Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more or join as well, just go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. Today we were supposed to choose some books that are basically like gateway drugs to our favourite genre. I had so much in mind for this, but finally settled on Magical Realism. It is a sub-genre of Fantasy and not exactly easy to define, since there are so many crossovers these days. I guess the easiest way to explain it, is to say that it has magical elements in a world that is otherwise rooted in our typical reality. It often draws on myths and folklore to create that magical connection. So, I guess my choices could be on the debatable side a little, but you should be the judge of that yourself.
What’s your favourite genre? Do you like Magical Realism?
