It's Friday again, which means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Teen Fiction Centre and Steph Likes Books.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
I'm not a teen so I am going to ignore the alternate portion of this question (which was: If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?) and just answer the part applicable to me. I think that the primary difference between me as a reader now and the reader I was as a teen is that I try to pay attention to the authors and titles of the books I am reading now. My biggest problem as a reader is remembering what I actually read back when I was a teen, because I would just pick up a book, plow through it, and then move on to the next one. The result is, there are many times when I am asked "Have you ever read such-and-such book by so-and-so" and I have no idea. Or I'll pick up a book that looks interesting, and once I start reading it I'll realize that I read it when I was fourteen.
For example, I read Robert A. Heinlein's Citizen of the Galaxy when I was a teenager. I loved the story and remembered it quite well, but I did not recall that it was written by Heinlein or the name of the book. Then I picked it up in a bookstore because the cover looked interesting and it was a Heinlein book I thought I had not read yet. Some authors and books I never forgot, whole piles of others I simply don't recall the name of the book, or who wrote it, or both. I'm better at that now. At least I think so. I might have forgotten.
