Follow Friday! (7)

Follow Friday is an awesome meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where you go around the blogosphere, meet new bloggers, follow as many as you like, and say hello to your fellow book bloggers! This week's featured bloggers are Steph Likes Books and Teen Fiction Centre, so go and check them out!

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?
When I was a teen, I mostly read ADULT fiction. Paranormal romance, urban fantasy, lots of Stephen King and Michael Crichton (my love of Michael Crichton knows no bounds, TRUST ME). I've started reading a lot more of Oprah's Book Club, LOL. Okay, time for Megan's Book Club aka what I've read since I turned 20.

Best books I think you should read - Middlesex, The Time Traveler's Wife, She's Come Undone, Snow Falling on Cedars, The Other Boleyn Girl, Stones from the River (my second favorite book of all time)... YA has been a recent thing for me really. Reading wise, though, I still do read mostly adult books and contemporary literature.

Oh! Remember to enter my 100 Followers Contest! It closes at 11:59 PM on Sunday and I will pick a winner Monday morning. Check it out here! While you're here, check out my review of Glow and my discussion about YA romances.

Coming next Thursday will be another Book Brat's View, so mark your calendars now!


  1. Why is this funny that teens read adult and adults read teen? Love it.

  2. Really, Oprah's book club?? I honestly don't know if I've read anything from Oprah's club (there than the Color Purple) Either way, I like Megan's book club :) Happy FF, my post is over at Book Savvy Babe

  3. Reading has been a recent thing for me. I like both YA and Adult fiction though. Paranormals are my favourites. Oh and I like your little Pushing Daisies image in the post below. Loved that show!

  7. Whoa. I stuck with YA books nearly through all of high school. Until about senior year when I was getting a little tired of the teenage drama. Started reading adult paranormals then! Went back to YA when some friends told me I had to read Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy and ever since then I've been reading both YA and adult paranormal!

    Here's my Friday Hops
