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

My Expanding Bookshelf

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging in February 2015, so I’m still fairly new and trying to figure things out.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favourite part of blogging is meeting people who love reading. I love being able to chat with other bloggers about the books I read and fangirl over my favourites. I don’t really gr to do that in my life outside the blog.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I think I blog about any type of books. I like variety and I don’t want to bore myself with reading the same genre all the time. But I have noticed that a lot of the books I have read since starting my blog are YA.

What are your favorite books?

There’s just so many. Special mentions would be Harry Potter – I would not be the reader that I am today if it wasn’t for Harry. And also The Princess Bride by William Goldman – this book has so many great childhood memories attached to it.

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

Being able to share my reading experiences with other bloggers and receiving  recognition from authors for my reviews. It also shows that I’m not alone in my fangirling over books!
