Follow Friday #2


Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee andAlison Can Read.
For details on how this meme works, please click on the image above.

This week's question:

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


If I decide to read a book, it usually has a healthy dose of some sort of relationship/romance in it. To me a book just isn't the same without a couple of the characters exploring that part of there feelings. On the rare occasion that I do step out of paranormal romance or romance, I will either read paranormal or mystery. I don't really know what books are best for paranormal or mystery, but I guess a good book that fits into the mystery category that I read recently was TEN. Great book that had me quickly flipping through the pages! One of the best I have read so far that fits into that genre. 
What do you guys read when you step outside the box?

  3. I'm a big fan of romance, too! I will read other books that don't have romance, but my favorites are usually ones with some romance. I like reading about people falling in love.

  16. Omigod! I've been wanting to read Ten for too long now, the book trailer looks awesome and the synopsis makes me get crazy-excited like you would over a scary movie trailer that you know will probably cause you a heart attack of some sort :P Great pick!

    Thanks for stopping by, followed you back :)

  20. Thank you so much for stopping by. Followed you back via GFC!

    I also love to read books about LGBT and issues teens face today (suicide, drug addiction, bullying etc.). Actually those themes pretty much guarantee I'll get around to reading a book!

  24. I've seen mixed reviews about Ten, but I like the premise (reminds me of Agatha Christie)so I will probably read it. Great pick!

  28. Following back! :) I like a good mystery every now and then, too, when I take a YA break. But I really prefer to have at least a dash of romance in my books. :)

  30. I haven't heard of 'ten' but I guess that's entirely the point of stepping outside your genre. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  31. I haven't heard of Ten either, but that definitely means it's outside of my genre too lol.

  34. Oh I've never been able to get into mystery...maybe someday I'll find one I like! Thanks for stopping by Ink Spots and Roses!

  35. I hadn't heard of 'Ten' but if it's an Agatha Christie retelling (and has lots of gruesome murders) then I'll have to pick it up :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I haven't read Ten, but it sounds simultaneously creepy and enticing! I'm usually not into scary books, but I might check this one out sometime.
