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.

 

Parajunkee, Urban Fantasy, Blogger TipsOur Feature this week:

Tash Brilliant Book Blog

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging nearly 2 years ago. I’m coming up to my 2 year blog birthday. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for so long but I’ve loved every minute of it!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
My favourite part of blogging is talking to like minded people about books; so many people don’t read any more so it’s great that I can talk to people who share my love of books, reading and blogging.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I mainly blog about teen books and the odd YA.

What is your favorite book(s)?
I have so many, my ultimate favourite books are The Fault in our Stars, The Hunger Games and Touch of Power.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The best thing that has happened to me through blogging is the opportunities its given me. I’m only 14 but blogging has inspired me to start my career now, I’ve interviewed authors, started writing for newspapers and discovering some great new books.

This weeks Question:

Change the Plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or a plot thread? Go ahead and do it…change it.

There are not many books that I would change, but really the one that sticks out the most is the ending of the Twilight series, with Breaking Dawn. I wanted Meyers to do things more aggressively. I wanted an all out battle. I wanted people to die and there to be no imprinting on newborns. I also think they should have named the kid something more normal, like maybe Beth. Beth is better then Renesemese. Or whatever it was.

Parajunkee, Urban Fantasy, Blogger TipsNew Feature! Next weeks question will be a question.

Recommend some of your favorite back-list books – books that are at least a few years old (I’m thinking 5-10 years old rather than classics)
