Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (10-19-12)

Happy Friday, everyone! Having a great week? I hope so ... now lets have some Friday fun!

Jen at Crazy For Books asks:

How did you find out about book blogging and what made you decide to start one yourself?

Well, it's not a really cute story or anything. I loved to read and didn't have anyone to share my love of books with. So, I Googled "Book Blogs" and looked at some, then made my own. Pretty uneventful.

Parajunkee asks:

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

My usual genre is chick lit and contemporary fiction, but when I want to change it up, I reach for a thriller. I think I like them so much because I don't read them as often, so I don't get burned out on the intrigue.

So, how did you start your blog? What do you like to read when not in your normal genre? Let me know and have a great weekend!


  1. I don't have a usual genre.. I just read what sounds good to me. I don't really read thrillers or scary books.
    Here's my FF.
    Happy Friday!

  2. I'm beginning to love thrillers, too! So much, in fact, that I've started writing my own XD

  3. My usual genre is historical fiction and mystery. I will do a women's fiction at times. I normally don't go outside of my normal genre, and I will not read paranormal/fantasy/vampires/erotica.

    Stop by to see why I started my book blog. Most answers are similar.

    THANKS for your post.

  4. I'm a thriller lover too but mostly I'm a science fiction junkie! Steamy romance and PNR are what I read out of my genre! :)
