Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday.

Book Blogger Hop

I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!

Weekly question: What's one genre that you wish you could get into, but just can't?

Dystopia. I try and try and try, but it never gets any better. They always sound cool, though! Which is why I feel like I have to give them a shot.



  1. Yeah, thats a hard one for me too, but I do find some I like.

    Stopping by from the Hop!


  2. Really? Some of my favorite books are dystopians. I can see how they wouldn't draw some people in though. Maybe one day you'll find one you love! :)

  3. Did you try "The Hunger Games?" I am assuming you have as those books have really put dystopian literature back on the map!

  4. It's okay, I love dystopian enough for the both of us. :)

  5. It makes me sad that you don't like dystopians...but to each his/her own! There are too many great books out there for it to really matter, I suppose. :-)

    New follower :-) Happy Friday!!

  6. I think you may be the first person I've encountered that doesn't like dystopia! Although I am a big dystopia fan it's slightly refreshing! Looking around your blog it seems we have similar tastes so I'm a new follower!

  7. Hopping through. I'm with you on dystopia. There are a few books I like, but for the most part the genre depresses me.

  10. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I have only just started to read Dystopian & have enjoyed it so far (Hunger Games Trilogy & Divergent are great).

    Have a nice weekend :)

  11. I feel the same way about Dystopians...Wither just didn't work for me. Although i have to say, if any one is worth a try it's Divergent by Veronica Roth, if you haven't read it yet, do! It's AMAZEBALLS :D
    New Followe, and if you do stop by my blog please say 'hi', i love meeting people
    Have an awesome weekend

  12. I love the idea of Dystopia, but I've never read a book on it. I've got Divergent sitting on my self though :P

    My Answer

  13. New follower.

    I agree Dystopia does sound really cool, doesn't it?

  14. I don't think I've read any dystopia. I'll probably get in trouble from someone for saying that, but it just doesn't necessarily strike me as something I want to read.

  15. I have enjoyed some dystopia but I can see your point. I think some are difficult to swallow.

  16. There are some good dystopian novels you can start with

  17. :O! Dystopian books are my favourite! It's one of my favourite genres. Oh well, each to their own :P. What genres do you enjoy then?

  18. Oooh, I find that I absolutely love Dystopian novels. I honestly don't know what it is about them, the world building and the author's probably, are what I'm drawn to. There's been some very unique worlds and character's that have stayed with me, plus it gave me something else besides paranormal romance to read which for a while I was getting a bit burned out on. :)

    Happy Friday Hops, have a grrreat weekend!

  20. Great answer! Here's mine:
