Feature and Follow Friday



Feature and Follow Friday is an awesome blog-hop hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

This week's features are Aditi, Chrystina and Jess @ Book Liaison and @Kinx's Book Nook this week's question is:

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


Before I discovered Young Adult (thanks to the Harry Potter and the Twilight series!), I read a lot of historical romance and once in a while I still do.  Now, for the most part, I read YA - romance, dystopian, paranormal, mysteries, thrillers, contemporary, fantasy, historical,  etc.  I do try to keep an open mind and look at the story as a whole, not just its genre.

Genres that I don't particularly love to read are biographies, and horror.  When  a co-worker suggested me to read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, I was a little hesitant; after all this is sort of an autobiography.  Although it took me a while to get invested in the story I ended up loving this book.  

What about you?  Do you step out of your comfort zone once in a while?

  1. I really like my supernatural/ speculative fiction books, so for me, reading outside my comfort zone means literary, contemporary fiction & historical romance.

  5. I'm not a fan of biographies either...

    I guess adult fiction would be where I got the most out of my usual genre...
