Feature and Follow Friday #2


Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

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!

Q: What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre, or is it a certain type of book?

My guilty please is definitely contemporary romance -- YA, NA and adult.  I read far more contemporary than anything else.  In terms of a certain type of book, I would say that my ultimate guilty pleasures are suspenseful romances like those by Linda Howard.  However, I definitely have a very guilty fondness for books set in college or boarding school (The Keatyn Chronicles by Jillian Dodd, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, Just One Day by Gayle Forman, The Ivy series, My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea Cameron, etc. etc.), no matter the genre.

I am just starting out so I would love love love followers via GFC or email.  Thanks for stopping by!  Link up your FF below!

  3. I haven't read much romance in the YA and NA genre. I prefer to read YA Dystopia or Fantasy.

  4. I'm also into romance, too. But I can't read it all the time, otherwise it would get too cheesy for me.

  11. I used to be a contemporary fan when I first found romance but now I really have trouble reading it I dunno if it just mirror's real life too much I don't know. I might have to give it a try again.

What to Read if You Love The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

This & That – 2 Books with Strong Friendships, a Quest, and SHIPs!This and That” is a feature created by Megan @ Reading Books Likes a Bossand borrowed here with permission. Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.” 
About the Books: THE RAVEN BOYS (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past.

Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
