Follow Friday (12)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme where bloggers follower other blogger in the hope of increasing your follower count, hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee.

This week's question:

Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?
Faeries. There! I said it!
I simply cannot get into a novel that revolves around the Fae mythology. I have tried and tried. I have read The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, Wondrous Strange by Lelie Livingston, Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, and several others. I quit every one about 1/3 of the way in.
I love paranormal romance. Give me vampires, werewolves, angels, dragons, and anything else under the paranormal sun and I'll be great. For some reason, I cannot get in faeries in books. I have no idea why - I enjoy faeries. Tinkerbell is my hero, but something about them in novel form doesn't work for me.
What about you? Leave me a link to your FF, and make sure you tell me if you follow me so I can return the favor!


  1. New follower! I am feeling the same way about Angel books. I just can't do them anymore! Looking forward to your reviews!


  2. I think sometimes the market gets so saturated with a theme that it starts to feel like eating too much candy!

  3. Sad to see you didn't like the Iron Fey...but it does get better as the series goes on, book 4 is my fave. Wondrous Strange wasn't that great and I couldn't even finish Wicked Lovely so I feel you there. But if you want a great series with fae, try the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. It blows all others out of the water!

  4. Hopping through. How funny that fairies don't work for you. I love the Iron Fey series. I'm not really into zombies.

  8. I'm not a fairy fan either! I haven't read a lot of books about them, but for some reason they just don't interest me. I'll take my vamps and werewolves anyday =)

    A lot of people seem to enjoy the Paranormal genre. Can't say I disagree. It is a fun genre to read ^.^

  11. Oh man, I am the same way with fairies. I struggle with any winged creatures, actually, because I'm not big on angels either.
