Follow Friday #23

This Weeks Follow Friday Question:
 Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don't like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place. 

 Well, it is kind of a funny story, because if I hadn't of picked up this book Book Bite Reviews probably wouldn't exist. About three, four years ago my cousin/best friend Sarah was reading a book with the rest of her friends religiously. All she talked about was this series and was saying how she was going to go to Washington, find her own vampire to fall in love with, and have a happy life. 

You  guess it... that book was Twilight  .

At first I was dead set against it. I used to only read YA contemporary. Sure I LOVED horror movies, but the thought of falling in love with that monster was just insane to me. Well, she finally convinced me to read the first book after constant begging and I couldn't put it down. I fell in love. I went out the next day bought all the rest of the novels in the series and devoured them in three days. After that I had to read more YA Paranormal. I never knew how many were out there or that it even existed!! Now I am a twi-hard, but I know some people aren't. BUT without that novel I wouldn't have gotten hooked on the genre or started this blog. Maybe I would have eventually found YA Paranormals, but not as easy as when I did. 

What book did you pick up and not expect to love? Follow me and leave a link back to yours and I will follow back =D
