Ever since I first learned to read, I've been reading as much as I can. I don't remember much of the early books I consumed until my dad handed me his little mass market copy of a book called The Thief of Always by Clive Barker. From the moment I first embarked on that journey with Harvey Swick to Mr. Hood's Holiday House, I was hooked.
My absolute favorite genre is fantasy, which carries through my love of juvenile and young adult novels as well as adult. Give me some Seanan McGuire, Catherynne M. Valente, N.K. Jemisin, or Nnedi Okorafor and I’m more than satisfied.
Graphic novels came to be part of my life around 2012 when I jumped into the superhero scene with Matt Fraction's Hawkeye and Kelly Sue DeConnick's Captain Marvel runs. I jumped in on Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson (I will never stop loving or hyping that comic, ever. Go read it, it's amazing) and found J.H. Williams III's run on Batwoman, and I've always been a fan of Gaiman's Sandman comics. Nowadays, while I still enjoy some superhero comics, I've gotten more into independent/creator-owned titles like Bitch Planet, The Wicked + the Divine, Pretty Deadly, and The Old Guard...not to mention all the kids and teen ones coming out.
