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.

Our Feature is  Coffee and Characters

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging in early 2013, first as a lifestyle blogger for a few months before realizing how much I loved books and switching to being a book blogger. 

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

The opportunity to interact with authors. It is so great to hear that an author appreciated my review or to be contacted for an ARC book request. It makes me feel a little special and it gives me the opportunity to asks questions and pick their brains.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I primarily blog about Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance but I do dabble in sci-fi and YA from time to time.

What is your favorite book(s)?

This is a tough one because I like so many but I recently finished Rachel Bach’s Paradox series which by far are my absolute fav Sci-fi books. I’m also a HUGE Karen Chance fan and love the Cassie Palmer books.

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

Book blogging has turned me into a writer somehow. I think after reading so much I developed a writers itch and I actually released by debut UF novel Cursed by Fire earlier this year under the name Danielle Annett. It has also allowed me to build some pretty great friendships with other people who love books as much as I do.
