Feature and Follow Friday (2)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly feature hosted by 
Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read

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

The more I read, the more I realize that a good story is more important to me than a genre. Here are two examples: 

1) I used to think that I didn't like sci-fi, but I've found books in that genre that I've enjoyed. For instance The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, which I read recently and really liked (though the end killed me!). 

2) I don't like love triangles as a rule, but I love Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices series, as well as Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series and both of those have triangles that are central to their story lines. I know "love triangles" isn't a true genre, but actually it is to me.


  1. Thanks for hopping by my blog! Both of your picks are on my list to read! :)

  2. Ya triangles are rough. They seem to be in a lot of series now.

    Thanks for stopping by. following back

  3. I have a confession to make, I actually adore triangles!!!! I can't help it, it's gotten to the point where I'm not interested in a book unless it has a big ole fat triangle ;)
    I'm a new follower, Hooray!
    Thanks for stopping by my FF'S for this week
    Book Me! and Carmen
    Happy Reading!!

  4. I get annoyed with love triangles real fast, so I can relate. They seem to be in EVERYTHING.

  6. Thanks for dropping by my blog. I've been trying to get to the Infernal Devices series forever. Maybe in the next few months. :-) New Follower.

  7. I'm a sci-fi junkie!!!

    And I have read the first Infernal Devices book but I've sworn off Cassie Clare (because I LOVE her so much) until she's finished her series. She KILLS me with those cliffies. Unearthly - we've talked about how I simply MUST start this series soon. I bought the first book but haven't read it yet. I want to read the Marchetta series first.

    Good answers!! Proud of the sci-fi!!! YAY!!!

  8. Haha, first of all, can we be best friends?? I hate love triangles as well, and thought I was the only book blogger out there *high fives* second, yey sci-fi! I'm a fan :D

    So obviously I'm a new follower, because you rock! Here's my blog (reviews tend to warn of love triangles if they are in the book! ;-) ):
