[livejournal.com profile] shreena and I were talking about books over the weekend, and the topic of "books that made you go "Whoa! That was great". Tangentially to this discussion we were talking about genres, and wondering about how favorite books fall among genres, so I decided to sit down and write out my favorite books and which (approximate!) genres they fall into.
