Follow Friday #19

This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!

If you can't follow via GFC, then please follow via NetworkedBlogs or e-mail! :)

Please state in the post if you're a new follower or old follower. If you don't tell me that you are following, then I don't know that you are. Therefore, I'll not follow you back. I would like to follow each and every one of you back, so it is important that you clearly state that you are following me and not just stopping by. When someone says, "just saying hi!" or "just hopping through!" then I have no idea if you are following or not. That means that I may or may not return the visit, depending on how much time I have. The people who state they are following me will definitely get a visit and follow back. Also be sure to leave a link back to your blog, otherwise I won't know where to go to follow you! Thank you.   

Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don’t like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.

A: More often than not, I don't like dystopian novels. I also don't generally like contemporary. However, there have been some dystopian and contemporary novels that I've absolutely loved lately. 

For Dystopian: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi and Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin. 

For Contemporary: Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf, My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick, and One Moment by Kristina McBride. 

What about you guys?


  1. Old follower stopping by to say hi :) I haven't read either of the books you mentioned, although I enjoy both contemporary and dystopian.

    Here's my FF #2.

  2. Shatter Me is definitely one of my favourites!

    Following! Feel free to stop by my blog :-)

  3. old follower! I loved Shatter Me! I'd like to read more dystopian but most of them have been disappointing. there's always way too much teenage angst and stereotypes and not enough world building for such a imaginative genre.

  6. I love Dystopian but I haven't actually read any of those books yet. Recommendations coming from a non-dystopian lover ust mean they're pretty good though!

    I'm still new to the whole Dystopian books, but the ones I read so far, were really good :)

  10. I used to not like HF, but then had to read The Other Boleyn Girl for a book club. I put it off because I had no interest and ended up loving it!

    Old follower- just stopping by to say hi. :)


I love getting comments, and I also try to always return the favor! Thanks for stopping by!
