Friday Feature & Follow

Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Hop from book blog to wonderful book blog, meet new bloggers and readers, and make new connections :)

Q: 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.

Yes, this definitely has happened to me in my lifetime of reading. It actually started all this obsession with things outside the realm of reality. I was browsing the bookshelf at... Walmart, I think it was (We didn't have a nice bookstore where I lived)... and I saw the shine of a freakishly colored eye. It was The Host by Stephenie Meyer. It sounded way sci-fi, and I'm usually not a science fiction fan ~ Star Wars, Star Trek.. no thanks ~ but there was something about the cover that made me have to have this book. I ended up not being able to put it down, and, of course, I had to read the rest of Meyer's books, which led me to Twilight and the rest, as they say, is history. :)

Happy Reading Everyone :)

  1. I love it when I take the chance to try something new, and it works out well for me.

    I'm an 'old' follower, here' my FF #2.

    have a great weekend!

  2. Woot! I had picked my copy up because I had read Twilight first. I was so pleasantly surprised with The Host!

    Thanks for stopping by LIO. :)

  3. The Host is definitely my favorite Meyers book! I totally get what you're saying about being hesitant. However, I'm totally an alien lover now. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. This is a good example. I normally dont read wierd sci-fi books, but I loved the Host. I was the opposite though, I read Twilight first and then The Host next.

  7. I like sci-fi, especially when the characters are great but I've noticed a lot of people are wary of it.

    My follow friday! Please visit!

  8. Hopping through. How interesting that you read The Host first. Usually it's the other way around.
