Welcome to the Feature & Follow


Gain Book Blog 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.

All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.

Our Feature Nina @ J’adore Happy Endings

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging since September 2009.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
My favourite part of book blogging is getting to know other bloggers and authors. And also get to know readers with similar reading taste. I love that!

What is your favorite book(s)?
There are a lot of books that I consider my favourite. A couple of my favourites are Emma by Jane Austen (I love rereading this book!), From What I Remember by Stacey Kramer & Valerie Thomas (one of my favourite contemporary books this year) and Carrie Pilby by Caren Lissner (love!).

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The comments that people leave at my blog. That always puts a smile on my face! The love from other bloggers, reaching blogging goals, reading books that are recommended to me, but are out of my comfort zone and absolutely loving them.

Q: What is the BIGGEST word you’ve seen used in a book lately – that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.
I actually haven’t looked up a word in a long while now! But, let’s pretend I just read Emma by Jane Austen. A couple of the words that I had to look up were: boast (show-off), caprice (a sudden desire) & alacrity (liveliness and eagerness).

The last thing I had to look up was something in Fifty Shades of Grey, something like porking a football — or something. I can’t remember, I had to block it out and I don’t want to look it up again. It turned out to be British Slang…#lame
