Feature and Follow #11

Feature and Follow Friday is host by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read and give bloggers a topic to discuss each week while discovering new blogs. 

Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?

This is hard as I don't have a usual genre, or more so I read a board range. I mainly read sci/fi & fantasy based novels (and any of their spin offs like dystopian  paranormal, etc) either in YA or adult forms, but I enjoy chick lit, horror, crime, true stories, and contemporary too. I don't step out of these as I generally don't like the book if I do. I'm not a fan of erotica/romance or religious books, everything else is fair game to me. 

I read a military book once when it wasn't something I had read before (about 4 years ago). For 6 months I moved over to where my then boyfriend (now husband) was working and I didn't have my books with me so I read one of his. It was fantastic - Fighting Scared by Robin Horsfall **I just want to clarify that this is non-fiction.

How about you? Leave me your link in the comments so I can see your answer. =)

Psst, don't forget I have a giveaway going on where you can win a 2012 released YA novel. See here for details. =)


  1. Hey, I really like your answer! It's really nice that you read military books when not reading your usual preferences.

  3. I read anything when I have nothing around, so I've read westerns and military books when I was desperate...and enjoyed them! It's always a pleasant surprise, isn't it? :)

  4. Hopping through. I've never read military fiction but I could see myself liking it. I'll have to look out for it.

  6. Military is an interesting choice! Here's mine:

  7. That is something I would never pick up on my own. I wouldn't have even thought about it. For some reason I stay clear of books with covers like that, where it's just giant font.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog too!

  8. I to have found a new genre I liked after reading it when I had nothing else to read.
