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.

1. When did you start blogging?

Officially, I started book blogging about two years ago on and off, but I started blogging consistently late last year in December and it’s been great ever since.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I love discussions! Discussion posts are one of my favorite things to create and participate in. It is awesome getting to see other people’s opinions and views on things. Whether your view is similar to mine or the complete opposite, I always like to hear about it in the comments.

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I blog about general Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction mainly. I also do the occasional new adult and adult book review. My favorite genres are fantasy, contemporary, and dystopian.

4. What are your favorite books?

This question is actually kind of hard for me. I like so many books. My favorite books of all time are the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. I also like the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, any book by Stephanie Perkins, The Missing Series by Margaret Peterson Haddix, The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson, and When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead.

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

I really like just the whole experience of interacting with other readers and authors. It is great to know you are a part of a community that shares your same interests. The best thing is definitely getting responses from publishers and authors you love when you write about their books. It always makes me excited interacting with them.
