Feature & Follow Friday............


Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....


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.


A:  I'm not a big fan of YA books but picked up The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins after it was released because my sister couldn't stop talking about it.  I now recommend it to everyone.

  6. I think this just goes to show that it doesn't matter what genre a book is, a well written engaging book will always be just that.

  7. I'm also not much of a Young Adult fan but enjoyed The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting. Maybe it was the serial killer plot that did it.

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