Since hanging out with my friends and talking to the people I talk to, it seems there's a general consensus that SF/F books are the Good Books and contemporary/romances are filler. Will there ever be a contemporary that can equate to a sprawling fantasy series or sci-fi duology, that can change lives the way they seem to? It's almost like the people in my real life don't even take a book seriously anymore if it's a contemporary (unless it's written by John Green or the like), they don't even count them as Read books on Goodreads. Only YA fantasy counts, with the occasional dystopian or sci-fi thrown in. Is this just how it is? Am I surrounded by weird people? Or do you feel the same?
