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! [clearboth]

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.

Spare Time Book Blog

1. When did you start blogging?
I started blogging on January 10, 2012. Wow, I have learned so much since then!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I love connecting with authors. Yes, I totally fangirl out when then message me back or share something of mine. There are a few that I talk to pretty regularly. The blogger community is pretty awesome too. I have made some blogger friends that have been great and helped me figure some stuff out over time.

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I blog about a lot of YA, New Adult, and Adult books. I have found that as I have aged I have started to lean more towards upper YA, New Adult, and Adult books. However, YA holds a special place in my heart because that is what got me started on this adventure. I am also hooked on paranormal. I LOVE it. You give me a good paranormal romance and I don’t care what age group it is, I will read it! Bring on the aliens, vampires, faeries, werewolves, Gods, angels, and demons and I will dive into that world for hours.

4. What is your favorite book(s)?
This is an ever changing answer. I have found books that I love many times. Right now I would have to say the one that I can’t get out of my head is The Fault in Our Stars. I know…who hasn’t read it and liked it right? I waited a lot time to read it and just recently did. I am also knee deep in Jennifer Armentrout’s Lux series right now (alien love!). Daemon is currently on my night stand staring at me, begging me to read Opposition.

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I have met some pretty awesome people. That is probably the best part. The blogging community is huge! It is so awesome to have so many people with the same passion to talk to. I also love the books! I have had authors contact me or people suggest books I may have never found or thought about before. I have been introduced to so many books I have loved this way.
