Follow My Book Blog Friday


You know the drill.... Follow My Book Blog Friday hosted by the very awesome Parajunkee!

Q. Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

Hmmm.... This is a tough one for me. I love all things YA, especially those with a paranormal slant, but I think my current favorite has to be dystopian. The Hunger Games opened up this genre for me and while I find there are often a few heart-wrenching moments (yes, I actually cry over the plights of fictional characters), I enjoy the stories and the fact that they make me think a little more than say, my favorite paranormal romances.

  10. Hello. I'm a new follower from Follow Friday. I, too, love YA with a paranormal bent. I also love steampunk and dystopian. I could read those all day long. BTW, I noticed that you're from Carlisle. I have family there. It's a small world! Hope you enjoy your weekend.
