FF 2012 Feature & Follow #104

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.

 I don't know if this really counts, but I used to never, ever read young adult. Ever. I didn't read it when I was a teen. I picked up Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series because at the time, I really loved her adult series. It's safe to say it worked out well, because these days I read YA pretty regularly.


  1. Oh, I haven't read Soul Screamers, but I've spent an awful lot of time admiring the amazing covers so it's just a matter of time!

    Old follower hopping through!

  2. A lot of people seem to love the Soul Screamers series! I feel like I'm the only person that hasn't yet.

  5. I'm the opposite to you. I've always read YA and was never into the adult genre (but that's changed now). But yes, I absolutely love Rachel Vincent. She's a brilliant writer! Love every single book from her! :)

  6. I'm not much into YA, I didnt read it when I was a teen either. I can read it more then I used to but it's still not my fav.

  7. I'm the opposite, I've always read YA novels and never any adult books, but since last year, I started reading adult novels, but the majority of the books I read are YA, because I've only been an adult for a few months, so i'm still a teenager at heart (I'm 18.5 years old).

    I just started reading the Soul Screamers series this week. I read the My Soul to Lose novella and liked it and now I'm reading the first book My Soul to Take (I'm reading them from the first bind up).
    I love the covers and I heard so many good things about this series.

  8. When I first picked up YA, it was a bit too immature for me. I don't know, maybe because there wasn't any nookie like in my PNR/UF books? LOL. But I'm glad I kept going because there are great YA's out there. Now I read everything and anything lol.

    I'm a new follower. You can find my FF here.

  9. I rarely read YA either, but now it's half my books. I need to read soul sceamers soon.

  10. I love the Soulscreamers series! Great answer!
