Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
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?

Yes! I loved telling people about YA series to try out. I often recommend the Mortal Instruments Series but my nephew was interested in a new series and I recommended the Young James Bond series by Charlie Higson.  He liked it so much that my sister had to buy the next 3 books because he was reading them too quickly!  I also recommended The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting to a girlfriend's daughter.  She was young with a high level of reading.  She finished the series in a week!

  1. 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?

    I haven't gotten around to Mortal Instruments...yet.

  2. The Mortal Instruments is a great series! I realized recently that my son is starting to read some of my books, so its pretty exciting! Usually Kristen from My Bookish Fairytale and I share books. She has gotten me hooked on quite a few series. I posted my very first Follow Friday here Stop over and say hi if you have a chance.

  3. I wasn't a big fan of The Mortal Instruments series unfortunately, but I convinced one of my housemates to give it a try nonetheless and she loves it and has pre-ordered the next book! I love that you're introducing children to new books, it's amazing to open up their world like that! I'm an old GFC follower! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you had a great weekend so far!
