Follow Friday - January 27

Gain New Blog Followers
Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme which is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read that expands your blog following. It is a great way to meet new bloggers! Each week there is a great question and each host will have a featured blog too. I have been a follower of Alison's blog for the past year and finally decided to join on this hop. I hope to hop from time-to-time!

This week's question is:

Q: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

My Answer:   One genre that I have never found myself really getting into would be Romance. I don't totally avoid it but just don't find myself going out to look for them.  I really never cared for Harlequin stories and some are just to overdone and unrealistic for me. I have a couple of favorite authors though like Nicholas Sparks and Santa Montefiore that I stick with because I love their writing styles. That would be about the only ones for a romance novel unless I find a good one by accident.

Looking forward to reading what your answer is to this weeks topic.  Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I don't go for straight romances either. I like it when it's an element in one of my UF books. But I couldn't read a plain old romance novel. Not my style.

  2. Agreed I like my romance integrated into the story which is often what YA books do so that is great!

  4. New follower. for me romance has to have a story with it not just some unrealistic love fest .

  5. Hi! I'm a new follower!!! I can't wait to read more on your blog!!!! :)

    I like romance so long as it's not too mushy gushy or unrealistic :)

  6. I read a ton of romance when I was younger but rarely do now
