You're the Voice: Introducing Rhianna and Fantasy (Her One True Love)
A new month; a new You're the Voice contibutor! This month (a spooky month - halloween!) Rhianna Ricks will be talking all things books and reading. Rhianna is 15 years old, and studies at the Catholic Ladies College in Victoria. Welcome to the kennel, Rhianna!
Hope. It is a necessity for us to be able to dream.
I've realised recently the majority of my favourite authors are in the fantasy genre. I had never really expected or thought of myself as a fantasy lover but after reading books like the Graceling Realm series by Kristin Cashore, and the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas, I have realised that I am not only a fantasy lover but I also have a liking towards books based on heroines.
Reading these books I found myself loving the heroines they wrote about - who were not only brave but fearless too - but also admiring these authors who were able to transport me to a different place and time.
Fantasy is an amazing vessel that has the ability to take you to places you have never dreamed of going to. It is a place that you are always allowed to enter and a place you can never be banished from. A safe zone for anyone who is struggling with life's demands. To be honest with you, these authors are my real heroines for taking me to these places of hope and happiness.
What is your favourite genre? Are you like me and can never have enough fantastical action in your life? I would love to read your comments.
