Follow Friday #9 & Book Blogger Hop #6

9 Sep 2011

Follow  Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can Read!

Q.Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??

Haha, I like this question! Don't get me wrong - I love the 'good guys'- but in almost every single book out  there, it's always the good that triumphs over evil. I've wanted to try a book where the villain actually wins, but I've had no luck.(Obviously) So, in Halo by Alexandra Adornetto, I really wanted the bad guys (Jake) to win so that the book would just end already. I did not care for the characters, so I would have been happier if Jake and killed all the angels. Oh and it would've been nice if the main girl had fallen for the bad guy as well, since I just could not tolerate her & Xavier's romance. Urgh.

“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

I read primarily YA, but I also read other genres - paranormal romance, adult fiction, historical fiction, crime etc. The world would be a very sad place if authors stopped writing YA :(, but I guess I'll still survive. I'll probably just start reading crime fiction again, & Jodi Picoult's books! 


  1. I agree with you on YA. I am really enjoying it so I would be sad if there wasn't anymore! I can always find something to read though.

    I bought Halo ages ago, but I still haven't got around to it. And now with our Aussie Hades cover, it's put me off even more. Maybe someday. Thanks for stopping by earlier :)

  3. I have Halo on my pile sitting for awhile now and I dont know if this is the book I would love to read but I want to give it a try. :) Happy friday!

  4. Heyy :) Give it a go - it wasn't my cup of tea but I know a few people who really like it! Have a great weekend =D xx

  5. I'm into YA too! =) Hopping through!

  6. Haha, no problem :) Truthfully, I have no idea which cover's the US & which one's Aussie :S but I most likely won't read Hades anyway...

  7. Please don’t be shocked but this week I’ve got a straightforward, cut and dried answer to this week’s question... for a change!

    Root for villains? No way, no how. Why am I being so narrow minded? Follow me back to my blog and find out why –

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  9. There are so many different things to read even if new books in a favorite genre stopped being published. Please come see what I would read.

  10. Old follower here for the hop. I haven't read Halo, but it's in my TBR list, I hope I feel the way as you did.
