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.

The weekly feature

Mountain Rhinestones

1.) When did you start blogging?

I started blogging on January 6, 2015

2.) What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Definitely talking with the other book bloggers that I’ve had the opportunity to have conversations with. I started blogging as a way to talk about the books I read because, at home everyone gives me blank stares when I start talking books. It’s nice to have found a community of people who are interested in the same thing as me and who have some of the same little quirks that I do.

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

Mainly anything YA. I like almost all the sub genres that fall under YA, so if it sounds interesting I’ll read it and post my thoughts about it. 

4.) What are your favorite books? 

I love just about every book I read but I completely flipped over The Hunger Games Trilogy by: Suzanne Collins and The Lux Series by: Jennifer L. Armentrout and Dare to Dream by: Carys Jones.

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

Here recently I was contacted by an author and a book marketing agent to do some reviews. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that that would happen or was even a possibility. All I was ever looking for when I started blogging was a way to talk about the things that interested me, and because of that I’ve gained so much. Now, I have people to talk to about books, I’m constantly finding new books to read, and I’ve been presented with amazing opportunities. 

week's question

How did you come up with your blog title and address? Does it have a special meaning for you? – Suggested by The Paperback Princess.

I started out only reviewing on Amazon – and also only really reading Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance – so I thought – I’m a total Paranormal Junkie. I didn’t want to spell it out though. That about sums it up.
