Feature & Follow - Book Pushing (May 23, 2014).

Feature and Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Click on the links to visit their blogs and find out more about this great meme.

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?

Many years ago, I recommended some books by Charles de Lint.  She loved them and kept on reading.

I also recommended the first Anita Blake to my sister, but she was so horrified by the first paragraph where Anita was discussing her scars, she put it down.  About a year ago, I lent her Mind Games by Carolyn Cross.  I figured she would like it better, because the main character, Justine, is more of a regular gal.  She loved the book and ran to the library to get the second one.  I was so happy!

How about you? What have you recommended to others?  Was it a flop or a hit?

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?

I haven't gotten to the Anita Blake series yet, but it's on my TBR shelf.

I can imagine she must have been slightly horrified if she wasn't expecting it. But thankfully you managed to recommend her a book to make up for the scare! I'm an old GFC follower!
Thanks for sharing :) I hope you had a great weekend!

O yes, my best friend reads a lot of the books I recommend to her. She made me fall in love with Gail Carriger, and I made her a big fan of Gini Koch.
