Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and AlisonCanRead. It's set up so bloggers to discover new blogs and gain new followers. It's really cool! Every week two different blogs are featured. This week's featured blogs are Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance and The Paperback Princesses. Here's this week's question:
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.
A: I'm really picky and I usually stick to the same genres like fantasy and science fiction, but occasionally I have been known to stray. One of my favorite books from another genre was Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. It's a historical fiction novel that's about a billion pages long and rather epic if I do say so. I was interested in it because of its medieval time period. For someone who has studied medieval history and archaeology (enough to have a couple degrees), I usually (and oddly) steer clear of historical fiction, but somehow gave this one a try and loved it. I have yet to read its companion book, World Without End, which is collecting dust on my shelves. Sad day. They're just so long.
