Feature & Follow Friday #58


Welcome to Feature & Follow Friday (err Thursday) on Parajunkee.com

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

Our Feature  - Steph Likes Books






Because of a failure to post by the other feature...our only feature today is Steph Likes Books...

Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?

The funny funny thing is, I didn't read young adult as a teen. I was reading young adult novels when I was in the age bracket of 7 to 10. By the sixth grade I was reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz. When I was done with the horror genre I went feet first into Fantasy - tearing through series like the Dragon Lance series (I mean Tanis Half-Elven was epic, probably my first fiction crush). When I went through series after series...fantasy was always very close to the  science fiction section, so I began picking up the greats like Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke...and then the fabulous Adams, Keyes, Card,








Now for the Follow Fun!

Dang it, number 11. I WILL be 5 someday!

YA + Dystopian or UF/PNF is just my favorite.

BJ @ Dark Side of the Covers said...

Fun question this week! I'd drifted away from my speculative fiction roots when I left my teens, and it was Twilight that got me back into the non-reality-based genres....which is pretty much all I read now. :)

Old follower, just hopping through to say happy FF.

Cana Elene said...

Back when I was growing up YA was lame. So I too ironically didn't read YA when I was growing up :) Nice to meet ya Steph.

Sara Bee said...

I was never a huge sci-fi lover growing up. I loved HP. However, I have just started getting into the adult sci-fi genre.... and I'm loving it. Ender's Game is by far a fave and I am loving Game of Thrones.

Kira said...

Ha! Yeah. I wasn't big into YA when I was a teen either. All my books were adult fiction (with, maybe, a very few ya here and there).

Here's ours

Hey, it's my first time joining in FF. It was a lot of fun. I'm another one of those people that avoided reading in their teen years. The books they assigned us in school just weren't my thing.

Here's my FF

Laura Ashlee said...

I was the same. I didn't really read YA as a teen. I read fantasy. I can't even remember exactly what. I remember spending a great deal of time making my way through Lord of the Rings and becoming Tolkien obsessed. I only read one or two teen books and very little realistic fiction.

Have a great weekend!

Maria Behar said...

Hi, Rachel! I love your asnwer, and can really relate to it! I sure had the very same experience -- lots of fantasy (Tolkien, Peake, McCaffrey) and SF (Heinlein, Clarke, Bradbury) in my teen years, and now...mostly YA!! I've heard of the Dragon Lance series, but have never read it. Gotta do something about that... I can't get into the horror genre at all, except that I do like vamps and even werewolves, in the paranormal romance genre. (No zombies, though!)

Come check out my FF post!
