Jumping Genres Giveaway Hop


I like to write romance because it is a cross boundaries genre. You can jump from fantasy to sci-fi to contemporary to historical. I am not just a romance reader though. The last hop I talked about AVI who was one of the main authors who made me love reading when I was younger.

51+jiFY4cqL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_Recently I just read Coreyography: A Memoir by Corey Feldman. I usually don’t read biographies. Most are not my cup of tea. But first off the writing was very well done. And I have to say that Corey Feldman does not blame anyone for what happened, but just explained the circumstances that made him a drug addict. I am a huge nerd of 80’s movies. He was my favorite Goonie, and of course my favorite Frog brother. To read how he struggled while he made these movies made me so sad. And when they became jokes to us oh so and so got DUI, and so and so was drugged up and arrested. But there is a reason for it, and it makes me sad. It made me sad that these kids I grew up watching went through the trauma they did. I am glad he made it though it, because not a lot of them did. For those who like me love movies of the 80’s this is a big recommend.

Blurb: Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman has not only spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, he’s become just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in such classic films as Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. He’s been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets (including Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Marcil, and adult entertainer Ginger Lynn), shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the wildly popular duo “The Two Coreys,” spawning seven films, a 1-900 number, and “Coreymania” in the process. What child of the eighties didn’t have a Corey Feldman poster hanging in her bedroom, or a pile of Tiger Beats stashed in his closet?

Now, in this brave and moving memoir, Corey is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers of his generation—he’s still acting, is a touring musician, and is a proud father to his son, Zen—many of those closest to him haven’t been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he’s spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood’s biggest secret.

  1. Hmm….there’s nothing really out of my typically genres recently. I read pretty much everything. I did just read a comic for the first time in almost a year. It was Boston Metaphysical Society and I really enjoyed it.


  2. Non-fiction is a genre I tried that I normally wouldn’t and I’d recommend THE EDUCATION OF HENRY ADAMS by Henry Adams, THE VIRTUE OF SELFISHNESS by Ayn Rand, THE VARIETIES OF RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE by William James, and DIANETICS:THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH by L. Ron Hubbard.

  3. I jump genres all the time but I usually stick to one for 2-4 years then jump to another. At the moment I am loving fantasy and usually staying away from romance.

  4. I’m reading Triumph: The Untold Story of Jesse Owens and Hitler’s Olympics. It’s the first book in my local library’s Summer book discussion series, and not something I would have picked up on my own. It’s really interesting so far and I would recommend it.

  5. Hate to admit it but I haven’t been very adventurous with changing genres. I read romance, but pretty much any genre within romance. However, some time back I did read a book that was based on facts regarding the Titanic. It was like an hour by hour account of the trip. And I did find it very fascinating.
    A book that I would definitely recommend is Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan.


  6. I read just about everything, depending on my mood. I read a lot of Urban Fantasy and Fantasy, but sometimes love to read historical romance–especially Eloisa James’ Desperate Duchesses series.

  7. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  8. It wasn’t so recently but Harry Potter and YA – I used to be strictly adult books until my niece suggested I give them a try and I have to say I am a big fan of YA ever sense.

  9. I mainly love all genres, but I do not read many true life, like biographies, but I have read a few and I enjoyed learning about someone who I have heard of. About a year ago, I started reading YA and I loved it.

  10. I normally not picking about genres. The ones I stay away from, Horror and Vampires, are ones I won’t be going near anytime soon. I guess I could say I just recently started reading JAFF’s (Jane Austen Fan Fiction) though. I’ve read so many good books lately its hard to choose just one to recommend. I’ll go with Undercover- An Austen Noir by Cat Gardnier

  11. I normally wouldn’t read YA or whatever genre, ‘”Twilight” was but my niece was into it and I actually enjoyed reading it.
