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.

Perusing Bookshelves

 

1. When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in June and it was the best decision I ever made.

2. What is your favourite part of book blogging?
Book blogging has opened my eyes to even more books and genres. Before I started a book blog, I restricted myself to reading only a certain type of genre, but blogging has encouraged me to branch out to other genres and books that I loved as much!

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?
Young Adult, definitely. Young Adult books have intrigued me for a long time, but since I promised myself to read and discover more books, I also blog about New Adult novels occasionally.

4. What is your favourite book(s)?
I could go on and on forever with my ever-changing list of books that are my favourite! However there is one book that particularly stands out in my mind, and it is The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. Oh, that book. I finished it just recently and it gave me ALL THE FEELS. It’s official: Marie Rutkoski is now my favourite author!

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Interacting with more bookish people (and authors!)! I used to feel alone with no one to gush over books and my last great read, but since I started book blogging I found a whole lot of people who I could talk to and relate. I also gathered up the courage to tweet an author whose book I loved dearly and received a reply the next morning. BEST. FEELING. EVER.

 

 

 

 

This weeks Question:

Book character(s) you’d like to see with their own Twitter page …via A Great Read

I think I would be kind of scared of half the characters I really like have twitter pages…even though it might be fun to see some of the Big Alphas get it on twitter style, maybe Bones, Or Barrons – but you know even if they did have twitter, they wouldn’t be on it…
