Feature & Follow #3: Convinced Someone to Read a Book

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read,each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week. It is a great way to meet new bloggers, make friends, and get exposure for your own blog.

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?

I am another person that convinced three friends to read Stephenie Meyer's Twilight. My friend Michelle even went to all the movies with me.  I actually won tickets for an advanced preview of Twilight in Chicago with all the Reviewers (including Roger Ebert) - very cool.

I got my mom to read Toni Aleo's Assassins Series and Deirdre Martin's New York Blades Series.  Got to love a good hockey romance.

My eleven year old son, Justin, has been reading and loving a lot of series I have suggested: Brandon Mull's Fablehaven; Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and of course J.K. Rowling 's Harry Potter.  I love sharing books with him.


  1. I read Twilight with girlfriends too. Much more fun that way! New bloglovin follower

  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. Thanks for the follow. Twilight is a good girlfriend book.

  4. Thanks for coming by my blog and following. :) Following you back.

  5. I'm so looking forward to sharing books with my sons (5 and 1). Right now I'm reading to them every night but I can't wait for them to learn how to read.

    Thanks for stopping by my post. I'm following back via Bloglovin.

  6. I plan to share my love of Harry Potter to my future children someday.

    Thanks for stopping by and for following. Following right back via Bloglovin'.

  7. It is really cool to be sharing books with your son! :)

  8. Hi Diane,
    I am so excited because my son is actually starting to get interested in some of the stuff I read. I can never get any of my other family members to read what I read.
    Thanks for the follow and I look forward to more cool book talk with you!

  9. I would love to 'make' my 12-yo son read some books, but he's just not interested in it. Thanks for stopping by earlier, Diane :)
