Follow Friday(16)

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #80

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

This week's Question is:
Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don't like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.

This is such an awesome thought provoking question. I really had to think about this one. The genre that I pick is Dystopian. Dystopian is a very new genre lately and I never even heard of it or new what is was until I read one. The first dystopian book I read was recommeded to me and was The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. I loved them so much I read them all in a row, one right after the other. Reading this series changed my total outlook on what kind of books I love to read. I absolutely love anything dystopian now. Every dystopian book so far that I have read has not disappointed at all. I am so glad I jumped genres and actually read a dystopian book because it totally changed my complete outlook on reading. =] =] =]

Let me know in the comments with a link what genre you jumped to and now love completely.

Happy Follow Friday.

  1. I love dystopian, so I'm glad you like it too! :)

    New GFC and Linky follower! When you have time, come visit me:

  2. Hopping through. I've never liked dystopia but I love Hunger Games. It didn't get me into the genre in general but made me open to trying books.
    My Hop

  3. I want to try dystopian , I think I did read one awhile back and I did enjoy it. Right now the name of the book escapes me.


  4. I picked Dystopian too. Hunger games was awesome.

  5. Nice! Dystopian was mine too, although I forgot to say dystopian!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  6. Just hopping by, have a good week-end.

  7. Hi! Actually I only "liked" The Hunger Games. For some reason the books didn't leave me thrilled for dystopian or something. I think that feeling cae with Divergent and Insurgent and I just finished Shadow and Bone a few days ago - that's what really made me look out for dystopians!

  8. Now that you mention it, it is hard to think of a bad dystopian book. My least favourite ONE got three stars but all the others I have read have been either 4 or 5 stars. For a while I thought The Hunger Games was my first dystopian read but it turns out my first read was Uglies by Scott Westerfeld which I thought was very good but didn't know was dystopian, I just thought it was scifi (and it is but if we want to be specific then it would be called dystopian).

  9. Dynastopian books are also a bit new to me. I liked The hunger Games, but I'm always searching for new titles ^^

  10. I feel like the Dystopian genre was totally made for me. I loved it from the moment I read the Giver, Ender's Game, all the old goodies. There just weren't enough of them around. So I was so relieved when everyone started jumping on the bandwagon and the Hunger Games came out! :-)

  11. I've been reading Dystopian a lot lately, seems like the genre for me :)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following back.

  12. The Hunger Games are great! I think they were my first Dystopian books as well.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following you back :)

  13. OOh I need to read the Hunger games series, One day, I'll succeed! lol I'm sure of it.

  14. I love dystopian books, I think they're awesome but tricky to pull off. The first one I read was Uglies by Scott Westerfeld; I'd recommend it.

    Thanks for stopping by, I'm a new follower :)

  15. Dystopian is my favorite genre as well, but lately I've been reading a lot of contemporary and am surprised by how much I've enjoyed them.
