Feature & Follow #81 ~ Book recommendations made to family and friends

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers. But you have to know, the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

This weeks 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?

Sad to say, many of my friends and family do not read to the same extent as I do.
And when they do read, it is rarely in the same genre(s) I enjoy.
However, that doesn't mean I haven't recommended the odd book.
 A couple of my favorites are:

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpartick
Easy by Tammara Webber

  1. Hopping through. I still need to read Easy. I have it but haven't read it yet.
    My FF

  2. 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?

  3. Hush, Hush and Easy seem like nice books, and they've been in my TBR pile for a while now, but hopefully I'll be able to read them soon! Happy Friday!

  4. Yeah my mom is the same. She doesn't care for paranormal reads. My sister is iffy. She likes some and even some dystopian but she's not a very avid reader.

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  5. Same! Only my little sister loves reading as much as I do, but then she doesn't like to read contemporary romance, which is my favorite genre!

  8. I liked Hush Hush. I haven't read Easy. BTW The cursor is very cool! Follower on bloglovin

  9. My husband, his family , and my mom like biographies. I like fantasy, paranormal, YA, etc. so I feel your pain. I was glad that my son's taste seems more aligned with mine.

  10. I have to, have to, have to read Easy!! It's been sitting on my bookshelf since last May! Ugh! Oh, and guess what? I have Hush, Hush sitting on my shelf as well. :)

    Have a great weekend, Marilyn!

  11. Unfortunately people around me don't read as much either and at university people seem to seriously lack time to do leisure reading! But whenever I can I try to convince my sister to read books I recommend! I'm an old GFC follower!
    Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!
