Feature and Follow Friday (8)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

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?
A: Love this question, this definitely happens with me from time to time.  I usually am not huge on contemporaries, I'll read them but they aren't my first pick.  But I recently read "What I Didn't Say" by Keary Taylor and it was so good that I'm reconsidering and thinking about giving contemporaries a higher consideration on my shelves.


  1. Same here, with the book I chose. It had me rethinking my opinion on the genre.

    Contemp is not my go to but I enjoy it on occasion.

  3. Contemporary isn't something I read either. I don't enjoy it as I used to.

  5. I recently read What I didn't Say too, I enjoyed it, but didn't think it was the best out there, keep reading, there are so many better ones.

  6. I just said on someone else's blog that What I didn't say changed my mind about Contemp!! It is such a good book. New follow on GFC, NB and Linky.

  7. What I didn't say was pretty good indeed! :)

  8. Ooooh!!! This book looks really good and I already know I like Keary Taylor. I'll have to put it on my TBR pile!

    I'm a new follower via GFC.

    Would love you to stop by my new blog, Ensconced in YA!

  9. Hopping through. I've never heard of Keary Taylor. I do love contemps though. I'll have to check it out.

  10. Isn't it weird how some people won't read anything but contemporary and others have no interest in that genre at all? At least that's what I noticed with this week's question. I love contemporary, though, and it's great that you branched out a bit - I wished that would be the case for me and crime novels or thrillers :)
    I'm an old follower hopping through, but if you want to see my FF you can find it here:

  11. This is the second time I've seen "What I Didn't Say" mentioned during my blog hops this week. hm perhaps I should check it out :)

    Catie, I've nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award on my blog! Hop on over if you like :) I enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to more!
