Feature and Follow Friday (18)


This is a feature hosted by Para-Junkee and Alison can Read.They have been awesome and this feature allows to meet new book bloggers and book fans spread all over the Land of Internet.


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

Last year I picked up Fifty Shades of Grey. It was a contemporary erotica. I don’t read erotica at all contemporary or otherwise. However I loved it. It took hold of me from he beginning and wouldn’t let go. It leaves an impression.
You can read my review here





Tell me about your genre jumps.Are they as bizzare as mine


I love reading your comments so feel free to chat.
You can follow me however you like RSS, GFC or Linky.

Old follower just stopping by :) I loved Fifty Shades as well, the only reason I read was to see what all the fuss was about, and I'm glad I did :) I picked a sci-fi novel...

Good answer. I hadn't even thought about that one. I read it also to check out what the hype was about and really enjoyed it.

It amazes me how mixed the reviews are for Fifty Shades! I don't read erotica either so I was even tempted.

Hi Escapist :D

I've heard so much about Fifty Shades of Grey, but I had no idea it's an erotica! Wow! I haven't made any "bizarre" jumps, because fantasy is as far as I go :)

By the way, I love your blog and all the varying shades of pink :D It's very cool and I'm now a new follower!

I guess I expected too much from 50 Shades that I didn't end up enjoying it. Great pick, though!

I'm a new follower - here's my FF! :)

I've heard completely mixed reviews on this, but I think I'm a little young to be reading it, anyway. Great choice, though.(:

Old follower. I actually read erotica every now and then, but 50Shades didn't appeal to me at all :(

Thanks for stopping by earlier, have a great weekend!

Here's my FF #2.

Erotica was my pick this week too though it was a very different book from Fifty Shadoes of Grey

Hopping through. 50 Shades would definitely be out of my genre box, but I'm so curious that I have to read it.

Wow-this is quite a jump! But I don't think I've found someone who didn't like this series...maybe I'll try it at some point...
