Book Blogger Hop

The 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 Weekly Feature is... Pondering The Prose

When did you start blogging?

Technically, I started this blog in February of this year.  But I really didn’t start it up with any commitment until July!  Then I really put the effort into doing many posts per week and reviewing more books.


What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My Favorite part of blogging is interacting with people who write posts on my blog!  I really like getting in to conversations with others over books, and sharing my thoughts on bookish subjects.


What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I mainly blog about YA Contemporary and Fantasy books, but I also love to read and review Historical Fiction, and classic novels too.

What are your favorite books?

My all time favorite books is Pride and Prejudice.  More recently, I have loved The Wrath & The Dawn, by Renee Ajdieh, The Martian by Andy Weir, and The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez (that one really killed me!).

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

The best thing to happen to me because of blogging is finding other people who share my passion about reading!  Both online, and in person, I have connected to more people by talking about books.  When I am talking to friends, I usually ask them, “What are you reading right now?”  It’s a great conversation starter and I learn a lot about someone by what they read and what they think about books.
