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 Book Liaison

When did you start blogging?
I’d been trying to blog personally off and on for years, but it really didn’t stick. Finally it dawned on me to blog about what I love most, books!! And that stuck! I started the Shelf Addiction in January of this year.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
My favorite part of book blogging is meeting so many like minded people. I love that I can get geeked up about a newly released book and others are right there with me!

What is your favorite book(s)?
My favorite series is the Vampire Huntress Series by L.A. Banks. I just could not get enough of this series. I was sad when the books came to an end and even more sad when L.A. Banks passed. This series was the beginning of my love affair with the Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance genres. Beyond the Vampire Huntress Series, there are too many to list! J

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The best thing that has happened to me is that I have grown into more of an extrovert. This is huge for me, because in general I’m usually pretty quiet. My blog has really pushed me out of my comfort zone and I love that.

Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?

Let me say it has been AWHILE. A long time since I’ve stepped out of genre and I kind of hate that I’m so pigeon holed, but really I could probably review anything on this blog now LOL — but when I do step out of genre I like military books, spy novels, non-fiction crime novels. Still macabre stuff, but I like it.
