Welcome to the Feature & Follow


Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

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? 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.

Our Feature – Oh! For the Love of Books

Oh! For the Love of Books button by Parajunkee

I started blogging last summer but had no idea what I was going to do with my blog once I started it. It was kind of sad, but then I discovered the book blogging world and fell in love. I now blog about YA and am a sucker for hottie of the book and the romance that is involved! I often refer to myself as a fictional floozy because of all of my book boyfriends!

Aside from reading, I am an aspiring writer and a high school English teacher. I am often made of fun (good heartily) for being so devoted to English. I’m thinking of making a button that says:”I Love Being A Nerd!” Currently my favorite is Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck – it is partially because I love Ren, the leading male!

Q: Activity!!! Take a picture or describe where you love to read the most…

Feature & Follow Activity

Yes Those Are My Feet...

I love my big funky recliner. It is the most comfortable spot in the house. I was laying on the floor when I took that picture, so don’t look to closely at my lack of pedicureness…

If you have followed me via GFC you will no longer be able to get my feed via GFC or Blogger. I ask that if you use a reader, like Google Reader – just follow my RSS directly. That would be super!

<—- Just clicky clicky!
