Follow Friday (21)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

Here is this week's question:

Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

This question is tricky for me. Some of the genres I used to avoid like the plague I now love. I used to think cheesy paranormal romance would never grace my bookshelf........until I fell in love with Cat and Bones and the Demonica series. I never though I would cave to the pretty covers and read YA........until I fell in love with Shatter Me and Anna Dressed in Blood.

So, you see my predicament. Currently I avoid:

Contemporary books/romances
(Yuck, boring, give me something more! If no one is tormented by the fact that they shift into a furry being at night or lovers aren't kept apart by someone's secret supernatural powers........then it's not for me!)

(see above)

Happy Friday everyone!

  4. Hey, good answer. I used to be strictly YA fanatic until Cat and Bones, and Mac and Barrons. I'm trying to get into YA contemporary, I recently read Before I fall by Lauren Oliver and it was AMAZING, you should check it out. New follower, have a wicked awesome weekend =D

  5. Hopping through. I'm so like you. Many of the books and genres that I used to hate are now some of my favorites.

  6. You don't like contemporary? Have you tried plunging into the Fuentes brothers books??? They're soo good :))) Simone Elkeles is the author, Perfect Chemistry is the series. Check them out, you might get to love them ;)

  7. I think it's quite the same thing for me, so I can understand.

    I'm a follower

    here is mine

  8. I'm definitely the same when it comes to non-fiction and memoirs. Not enough paranormal for me! Unless of course a vamp or werewolf decided to publish their life story, that may get me interested in the genre =)

  9. I am very picky about my contemporary reads. They need something extra like great comedy or drama to grab my interest. I love that you are willing to try new genres though.
