Follow Friday

Follow Me Friday is a weekly book-blogger meme hosted by Parajunkee over at Parajunkee's View. If you have a book blog, you can join in the fun too! This week’s Follow Friday question is:

GenreWars! What’s your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

Although I try to read a number of different genres, the one I am most likely to read from is realistic fiction. I like reading about situations and dilemmas that can really happen in any given place during any given time. Although I am no longer a teen, like the characters in the realistic fiction books I read, I still feel like I can relate to what the characters are going through, whether from when I was a teen to even as a “young” adult in my 20s. I’ve had two equally good books that have made me fall in love with this genre: Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson and Identical by Ellen Hopkins. I love, love, love these books!

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. I have Catalyst sitting on my shelf and I have yet to read it. I loved Anderson's Wintergirls so I definitely need to start Catalyst! I need to start reading more realistic fiction. I've gotten so sucked up into the Dystopian and Paranormal genre's I feel like I've forgotten there's an entire world out there full of great realistic fiction. Definitely updating my tbr list! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! New follower ;)
