Feature & Follow Friday {04}

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The two blogs they are featuring this week: Reading and Writing Urban Fanatsy & The Paperback Princess.


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.

Hmm, that's a tough one. I always read a book based on the synopsis and recommendations I get. I don't really care about what genre it's from because there isn't a genre I don't like or haven't read from (besides non-fiction, LOL). I would say that I tend to stay away from horror because I do a lot of reading at night and I'm a total pansy. Yeah, I said it. Pansy = me. I recently read The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda two days ago and it creeped me out. I slept with the light on and it pissed my hubby off. It's about vampires and I'm okay with vampires, but these vampires had zombie-like characteristics and I'm so not okay with zombies. Zombies and ghosts *shudders like a pansy*

I'm excited to read everyone's answer. It's interesting to find out what author was so good at their craft that they can totally convert someone's opinion about a specific genre. Be sure to follow me! I lost a lot of subscribers when I went MIA for a while. I'll follow back of course :0)

Oh and you may want to consider turning Captcha off for this meme. It tends to irritate people. LOL

Oooh I've been wanting to read The Hunt! Hearing that it kept someone up at night makes it sound pretty good to me! hahah. The scarier the better xD.

And in reply to your comment on my blog, no I don't think we get mistaken that much. Why's that? The names? lol.

Hi Alisa - thanks for stopping by. Totally get you about horror. Once upon a time I ate up horror and loved scary flicks. Now I live way out in the boonies and I don't touch that stuff with a 20 foot pole. I'd be afraid to go outside in the evening LOL - Total chicken, too. :)

New GFC follower! Have a great weekend -
