Feature & Follow (6)

Posted by Charlene // Tags: ,
Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet  people and gain more  followers in the book blogging community.

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

I don't usually step out of my genres, so looking at my favorites list I think Outlander by Diana Gabaldon stands out to me because it is in a book genre I don't usually read - adult Historical Romance. I like Historical Romance but not so much ones with adult-adult content but I think it was the time traveling element that initially persuaded me to read Outlander, and by the end I just loved the intricate story and the complex characters so much - even though it has elements that I found really disturbing, it was such a fantastic read for me that it went immediately on my favorites list.

  6. I have been sent a Diana Gabaldon book by a friend, but I never bothered to read it. Now I wish I had given it a try before giving it away. Thanks for visiting my blog on the blog hop.

  11. So many people recommended Outlander to me; but I have to say, I wasn't a big fan. I could never get over the "discipline" scene. :(

  23. I honestly am no a fan of Historical Romances. I guess adult fiction would be where I got the most out of my usual genre...
