Feature and Follow Friday (22)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read. It is a great way for bloggers to make new friends and find new blogs to follow. Go to either blog, follow ALL the instructions and then add your link to the list. It’s just that easy!

This week’s question:

"Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?"

I don't have a genre I "avoid at all costs," but I don't read autobiographies. I pretty much stay away from them. I enjoy non-fiction and I will read occasionally read biographies, but in general I don't read self-aggrandizing works. There is just something about someone writing about themselves that irks me. In my early college years I had to write an autobiography and I didn't even enjoy that. 

What genre do you avoid? Leave me a link to your Follow Friday and I will stop by and see what it is!


  1. I occasionally read autobiographies but in general I feel the same way you do

    Thanks for stopping by Book'd Out earlier!

  2. I agree, there is something just wrong about someone hyping themselves.

    Stop by my HOP if you have a chance.

  3. I don't like those either. I get bored when nothing paranormal is going on!

    Here's my Friday Hops

  5. Me too! I don't read autobiographies because I find it hard to enjoy them! Thank you for stopping by my blog! :)

  6. I am not much on autobiographies either. Give me the fanatasy world. Thanks for the follow. Following you back. Jenn Renee

  7. I don't read them either. I couldn't even imagine writing about myself so I don't want to hear someone else do the same. Its good that you enjoy non fiction and biographies. I find them hard to get into a lot of times, but want to try and broaden my horizons.

  8. I don't think I've ever read an autobiography. I probably wouldn't like it either.

  9. I agree with you about the autobiographies, although I sometimes read memoirs. Thanks for stopping by my FF. Following back! Happy reading.

  10. Hi! I'm a new follower!!! I can't wait to read more on your blog!!!! :)

    I agree about autobiographies. I think that's why I love fiction; to be able to escape into someone else's made up world :)

  11. New follower!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  12. The only autobiography I've read is Bossy Pants (hilarious) but yeah otherwise I totally agree with ya!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Great post! At first I thought that I like all genres- but after you mentioned autobiographies- I can't think of even one that I have read. So- I guess I must avoid them!


  14. Hopping through. Most people seem not to like autobios. I usually like them. To each her own :-)

  15. Hey there! Thanks very much for stopping by the blog. Sorry I am late. Yesterday ended up being busier than I had anticipated. I haven't read an autobio that I recall. But I can see your point. Perhaps one day I will give it a try just for the sake of saying I tried. New follower! :)
