Follow me Friday (#13)

Gain New Blog Followers

Hey guys, and happy Friday! Today is another edition of Feature And Follow (or what I like to call, Follow me Friday!) As always, this is a weekly meme hosted by AlisonCanRead and Parajunkee'sView.

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: Yes, as a matter of fact. I was never into history during Elementary school. Never liked it and I always thought "what's so important about the past anyways?" Little did I know then that the past actually helps our future, but anyways, that's off topic. Well there were these books going around called Dear Canada. I had a few friends reading them telling me they were great. Thing though was that they were historical fiction... HISTORICAL!! I couldn't stand anything historical. Well I picked one of the Dear Canada books up and instantly fell in love! Since then I can't seem to stay away from historical fiction, or even history (that's what I'm majoring in, if you can believe that). Now I read anything historical I can get my hands on, fiction or nonfiction. Because of those books I've seem to fall head over heels for the genre (thank you Dear Canada)

On to you! Leave your link and I'll come visit your post and follow (if I'm not already a follower, that is).

Until next time,


  1. I know what you mean. I tried Succubus Blues and fell in love with Urban Fantasy.

  7. Dear Canada? Never heard of it. Are they like the Dear America books I imagine?

    My follow friday! Hope you visit!

    1. Yup, they're just like the Dear America books except well, its Dear Canada.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Hopping through. I used to love the Dear America books although I was a little older when they came out. I bet I'd learn a lot from Dear Canada.

    1. Yeah, you'd definitely learn a lot. I sure did :)

  9. Hi Angela - LOVED your take on love triangles! Nothing frustrates me more than that sometimes. I hate to be led around in circles LOL. And I love historical fiction, too.

    Thanks for stopping by. I appreciated your comment on YAF - which is why it is so hard to pick a title in that genre. YA fiction is the only type that I really rely heavily on reviews before I invest time in purchasing/reading. Review copies I don't have that luxury. Hope that makes sense. :) I'll check out your reviews for new reads.

    Have a great weekend - New GFC follower, too.
