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.

Becky’s Barmy Book Blog

 

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging around December 2007

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I love the connection between other bloggers and readers. How everything feels like one big community amd always so welcoming. And of course, hearing about all the new cool books!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I mainly blog about YA, mostly fantasy or contemporary. That is what I would always go for but I do occassionally branch out if I hear good things about a book.

What are your favorite books?
That is such a hard question as I love so many, Harry Potter is of course always going to be up there. Shadow Falls series by CC Hunter, Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy, Geek Girl series by Holly Smale. Seriously I could be here all day listing the books I love!

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The best thing would have to be winning an iPad. A publishing company was running a competition for bloggers where you had to review one of their books and post both a written and video review and one would be picked to recieve an iPad and I was lucky enough to win it. I would never have believed it but it was purely the best moment ever!
