Welcome to Feature & Follow Friday (err Thursday) on Parajunkee.com

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course 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? First you leave your name here on this post, 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!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

Our Feature  – Belle Books

My name is Emma, I am 24 from Glasgow. Currently in my final year studying tourism with Spanish, and I also speak a little French and Italian. I’ve been an avid reader since I was young, and since reading the Twilight saga I’ve found a whole new love for young adult/paranormal romance/vampire books. Harry Potter will always be my favourite series, it literally was my childhood! I even have a Harry Potter tattoo <3

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

People might not assume this about me, but I’m rather political. But, the thing is I’m political in my house, because polite Southern Girls don’t discuss politics in public, unless they’ve had too much to drink. Or so they say. But, mainly I don’t want to offend anyone, because political views have become almost like religious or even like racial or sexual stances – the wrong lean might get you ostracized. So, I keep quiet, unless I know I’m in similar company.

I do have a point. Being a lover of dystopian fiction, I would write myself into a dystopian – and yes, you might think I’m crazy. No, I don’t want the world as we know it to end! But, really the characters in these books RAIL against the system. They take a stand – and what I would give to have the cojones to do that. Because I think something needs to be done. And I would like to know how I would react? Because everything said and done, would I be the type of person to point to the left and say “He Did It?” Or would I stand up for my beliefs and way of life and say “Hell no”? Even if it were to mean my life was at stake? So write me into The Hunger Games, I’ll be part of District 13 – or write me into 1984 and I’ll protest against Big Brother…hopefully. Never wanted to be a sheep.

Now for the Follow Fun!
