Feature and Follow #23

Gain New Blog Followers

This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Today's question is:

Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?

Good question. I read a lot of YA fantasy so when I do step out of that genre I want to read something light, funny, contemporary but still having some romance aspect. Smart Girls Get What They Want and Loving Summer were two awesome contemporary books I read this year.
Loving Summer (Loving Summer, #1) Smart Girls Get What They Want

How about you?


  1. I loved Smart Girls Get What They Want! Seriously, Contemporaries give you that nice, normal touch!

    It would be great if you could stop by my Feature & Follow Friday post.

  2. That's nice! I am way too invested in my paranormal reads to travel away from them. Although I do read a little bit of dystopian, just not a lot!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. You should try something different once in a while. Thanks for stopping by Jess :)

  3. Same here!! I love YA books! :D

  4. I want to read both these books. I discovered earlier this year how much I adore contempory romance. Old follower.

  5. Same here...lots of YA fantasy. :) When I'm up for a change, I thrown in a little adult PNR. That's how I found one of my fave series ever: The Night Huntress books by Jeaniene Frost.

    I used to NEVER read contemporary novels, but I love them now. Haven't read either of your picks, but I want to. :)

    1. You should, you might like them too. Thanks for coming by Jen.

  6. I love YA contemp even though I do read more paranormals. Smart Girls is on my wishlist! :D

  7. Hopping through. I haven't seen many reviews of Smart Girls Get What They Want. It sounds cute. I'd like to read it.

  8. Hopping through. Great choice for stepping out of your favorite genre!

  9. I have recently started reading more Contemporary Fiction, and enjoyed a few of them. But I guess adult fiction would be where I got the most out of my usual genre...

  10. I originally started with dystopian and paranormal, then fantasy. Now I find myself really loving contemporary romance, especially the new adult genre, and even quite a few of the adult novels. I really liked Loving Summer. I haven't read the other book, but it looks good.

  11. I'm a big dystopian & fantasy person also, but I step out of that genre all the time. I try to keep a nice variety in my reading - all the choices are what make books so much fun!

    I adore Loving Summer, glad you chose that :) Hopefully, I'll be able to read Falling for Summer (Loving Summer from the boys' POV) very soon! I think SupaGurl is hosting a tour for it Nov-Dec if you're interested (:
