Welcome to the Feature & Follow


Increase Blog FollowersThe Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work?

The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed. All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.

 

Our Feature is My Little World – Books ‘n’ Things!!!!

  When did you start blogging?

I suppose I’m kind of a newbie compared to some as I only started book blogging in March this year. But from the moment I started, I became obsessed and I love it!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I have to say all of it. I love talking books books and more books with other people. Hardly any of my family or friends read or read the same kinds of books as me so I rarely get chance to chat with them and squee about a great book I’m reading, so I get to do that through blogging. And I’ve met some really lovely people because of it. I also love that I get to discover so many books I may never have seen if it wasn’t for blogging.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

Mainly paranormal Romance and Urban fantasy with some YA thrown in too. These are the books that I’m most passionate about so I tend to stick to those genres. But I do read the odd chick lit and contemporary romance so I may post about those now and again.

What are your favorite books?

Ooh hard one! There are so many. I really could be here all day. I absolutely love Jeaniene Frost so her Night Huntress series is probably my favourite series out of all of them. I have a real big soft spot for Bones. (Yes that means I fancy the pants off him!). I also love The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. I can’t get enough of those sexy brothers! But I’ve just read a book called The Scribe by Elizabeth Hunter and absolutely loved it. I haven’t actually cried from reading a book for a while but that one got me. She has a fantastic series called The Elemental Mysteries which is also up there in my favourites list.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?

Writing my first novel. I started to write this particular book nearly two years ago but kept putting it away. I was writing it more for myself than anything else because I never really thought anyone would want to read it. But blogging gave me the inspiration I needed to get it finished and the confidence to get it out there. So because of that <a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18133914-awaken”>Awaken (Divine Hunter#1)</a> is due for release on 19th November and I’m extremely excited about it!!

This weeks Question:

What are some of your favorite magazines?

I’m not a magazine person. I used to get subscriptions, but then realized I wasn’t reading them. But, some of the ones I did like were MAXIM before it became REALLY cheesy and WIRED.
