Follow Friday #2

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This weeks question:

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?

My answer:

I'm going to say that when I turned 13 or so, I was really into vampire books.  This is when Twilight just came out.  I read about werewolves, ghosts, and faeries as well, so I guess you can say I was really into paranormal.  I didn't have a mind of my own when it came to choosing books.  I mainly read what my friends were reading at the time.  When I was a freshman in high school, I began to read Francesca Lia Block, who writes a mix of poetry and realistic fantasy.  I still found myself near that paranormal/fantasy section quite a bit, though.  In junior year I started to step into the bookstores on my own and discovered David Levithan, which brought me to Nick & Norah, Naomi & Ely, and Boy Meets Boy.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower became my favorite book that year, as well.  My love of books really blossomed when I discovered the joys of book blogging.  As of right now, I'm really enjoying contemporary romance, but I've been dipping my toes into a little of everything.  While I don't stray far from YA, you can catch me reading the occasional adult book once in a while.

Alright, guys, sorry for the life story.  Lol!
If you want, leave the link to your FF so I can check your answers!


  1. I love YA too and I can't seem to stop reading them. Yeah, I adventure into other genres, but I have to read YA a majority of the time. Great post!

    Here's my FF!

  2. New follower here! Happy Friday! Seems like a lot of people had a vampire phase! I don't know where I was when that was happening :( I think the only vampire book I've ever read was Twilight.
