Feature and Follow Friday

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

This week’s question…

Have you ever convinced someone to read a book, a series, or a whole genre? What book(s) and who was it? Did they like it?

I’ve convinced my mom to read YA! It started with The Hunger Games, then If I Stay which lead to Where She Went and The Fault in Our Stars. She loved them. I really want her to read Rainbow Rowell next. I love that she is opening up to other genres.

Feel free to add me however you like…GFC, Bloglovin, Twitter, and/or Goodreads. Be sure to link me up to yours so I can follow back.

  2. I think it's pretty cool that you got your mom interested in YA. I know my mom would never go for it but that's cool :)

  5. Hopping through. If your mom likes Gayle Forman and John Green, I bet she'll love Rainbow Rowell.

  6. Our book club encourages reading just about EVERYTHING! We vote on monthly group reads to discuss. Sometimes we hate 'em; sometimes we love 'em. The most important thing is to have fun, right?

  7. Oh wow, I can't even imagine my mom reading YA, haha! She should definitely try Rainbow Rowell; I loved Eleanor & Park! ;) Happy Friday!

    I'm already a follower :)

  15. I'm still trying very hard to convince my dad to open up to new genres, but then he hardly has any time to read anything. I do now lend out my books to my housemates, who do appreciate them! I'm a new GFC follower!
    Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!
