Feature & Follow Friday (6th July)

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #104 
Hi everyone!!

Thank-you for stopping by..

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee & Alison Can Read

This weeks featured blogs: Paperback Princess and Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy

Question: 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.

I used to avoid Fantasy! It took me forever to read the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa but when I did, I loved it! Since reading them I have tried (and enjoyed) so many books from this genre that it is now one of my faves.

Fantasy books I have read more recently and loved include:

Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

There are still a number of genres I won’t read such as historicals but this may change.

  1. Hm. Interesting answer. I'm not one for fantasy either. There's a lot of fantasy I won't touch, and am very selective in that genre.

  2. Hopping through. I really need to read both Shadow and Bone and Throne of Glass. I've heard raving things about both.

  3. I know one I won't touch and that's nonfiction but then again if the right book comes along.


  4. I'm also not much of a Fantasy fan but Harry Potter changed that for me.

    Here's my Follow Friday.
    I'm also having a Giveaway, so come on by and enter.

  5. OOh I liked fantasy books myself! A little picky with which ones! But Julie is definitely on the list! Maria V. Snyder too!

    Here's my Friday Hops

  6. I didn't used to like fantasy either. Have you read any of the other books in the Iron Fey series? I only read the first one so far, but I'm interested to see if I should continue. My F&F

  7. Fantasy is such a touchy subject with me too! I need to read all of the ones above you mentioned lol

  8. Someone had historicals as their genre choice, and they recommended The Book Theif and then I went to add it to my TBR on goodreads and realized either my friends had rated it as 5 stars or had marked as to-read. So maybe you should give that one of shot whenever you decide to try a historical, that and The Bronze Horseman are going to my tries. I think it was Harry Potter that got me into the fantasy genre because before then all I had read was contemporary books.

    Would love you to stop by my blog, Ensconced in YA!

  11. I really really need to read Shadow and Bone! I'm the opposite because I love fantasy and hate contemporary.
