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

When did you start blogging?

I started my blog in January of this year, but prior to that I was a contributor to the book reviewing site ReadDreamRelax since September of 2013.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Aside from having my own little corner of the internet to express my thoughts outwardly, I definitely really love keeping up with what others are reading and finding new reads through their recommendations and discussion posts.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I’ll read just about anything that catches my interest, regardless of genre. But, I do tend to go for and read mostly thrillers/mysteries (particularly of the psychological kind).

What are your favorite books?

I have a LOT of favourites, but some of my most favourite are Veronika Decides To Die by Paulo Coelho; Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn; The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath; Lullabies For Little Criminals by Heather O’Neill; Rebecca by Daphne duMaurier; and Paint It Black by Janet Fitch.

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

When authors have reached out to either thank me for a thoughtful review on one of their books or to request a review from me. It just makes me feel good, because it’s always been totally unexpected, and I love the interaction that comes with it. Also, getting to read ARCs via Netgalley has been pretty freakin’ cool too.
