Follow Friday - Order 66 Directed the Clone Troopers to Kill the Jedi

It's Friday again, and this 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:
  1. 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.
  2. Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance and The Paperback Princess.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. 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.
  5. 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".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: 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.

First I guess I would have to identify a book from a genre I usually don't like, which is a little more difficult than one might think, because I read books from such a wide variety of genres. I suppose Christian fiction would be a genre I don't like, but I have yet to read a book from that genre that I didn't find to be awful. I guess I could go with romance as a genre I don't read, but the best I could say about the books in that genre that I have read is that some of them, such as Danielle Steele's The Ring (read review), were adequately entertaining.

  1. It's actually very funny, because I came to the same conclusion as you!

    I'm a new GFC follower :)

    And here's my FF post

  2. Can't say that i would ever read christian fiction. I think that is one genre safe from me.

  3. Hopping through. Lisa Bergren's books have been the only Christian ones I like. The religious aspect is very subtle - or easily ignorable

  4. Yeeeah. Christian Fiction is not usually one I go for either, but who knows!

    New Follower.

  5. @Lexxie: That's interesting, although as I said, the best I can say about the Christian fiction I have read was that some of it was only somewhat awful, as opposed to really awful.

  6. @Amanda P: Christian fiction is generally safe from me, but once in a while an author with a Christian science fiction or Christian fantasy story manages to get one through my filters and have me agree to read it.

    The resulting reviews have not been pretty.

  7. @Alison Can Read: The handful of Christian fiction books I have read have been the diametric opposite of "subtle". As an example, in Seven Wings and the Bleeding Twin Flowers, at one point God reveals himself to the protagonists in the form of an enormous cross emblazoned with letters announcing his presence.

    Like I said, very unsubtle.

  8. @Auggie: Thus far the only Christian fiction I have read has been by accident. I have the entire Left Behind series though, and one of these days I'll sit down and read them and probably end up with a series of fairly scathing snarky reviews for them.
