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.

Nena’s Reviews

Q: When did you start blogging?
A: I started blogging in May of 2011, It has been 3 years now and the time flew by so fast I can’t even believe it.
Q: What is your favorite part of book blogging?
A: Honestly it’s when I read the comments and stuff that people have to say about the book, I especially love bonding with people over our favorite books.
Q: What type of books do you mainly blog about?
A: Young adult, New Adult, Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Contemporary…
Q: What is your favorite book(s)?
A: Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead, The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella, Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, and I am going to stop there because if I mentioned all of them this list would never end haha.
Q: What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
A: The best has to be the people that I’ve met while blogging, We have so much in common and it’s just so awesome and I always felt so alone because none of my real life friends like reading, so meeting those people online and talking to them is honestly the best thing to happen to me ever since I started blogging.
