The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture at host post and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! 

Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don’t like and then LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.

My answer is : Yes, I usually only read Paranormal, supernatural books, and never even knew what Dystopia type books are, but kept hearing very good intense things about Divergent and Insurgent, so I picked them up, and read them, and I am glad I did, they were amazing. (very mad about that worst cliffhanger ever at end of Insurgent, and have to wait over a year for book 3) But I guess these books seem to have a slight sci-fi paranormal type element to them, enough to keep me happy.

    If you have CAPTCHA word verification enabled on your blog, please take it off. It makes it much more difficult for readers to comment. Please look at Alisons CAPTCHA eradication Post to learn how to get rid of it.

    1. I love Divergent as well :) sometimes, I hate it when I get to books while the series is still being written, though - I don't like to wait either :)

      I'm an old follower, wanted to stop by and see your answer for today :)

      Here's my FF post

    2. I have a friend who used to avoid dystopians because I think she doesn't like watching anything that deals with the end of the world or humanity as we know it. I know she avoids movies like 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow for that reason. But after she gave The Hunger Games a read she reads dystopians like she reads her other favourite kind of books. It's always great to find something you love when you give something new a try :).
