Gain New Blog FollowersWelcome to the Feature & Follow


Increase Blog Followers, 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 Fiction Predictions

When did you start blogging?
Fairly recently, actually. To be more exact, September 22nd, 2012!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Tough question – there are just so many things I love about book
blogging! But my favorite part is knowing that somebody is listening
to my opinions, and that I’m helping great books reach new readers
they deserve.

What is your favorite book(s)?
This is going to take a while… Just off the top of my head, they are:
The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud, a fantasy series that I
feel need much more recognition.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, my first YA novel.
The Curious Incident of the Dog at the Night-time by Mark Haddon.
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
(et cetera, et cetera…)

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The best thing that has happened to me since I started book blogging
is being able to connect with other readers and bloggers around the
world and share my love (and obsession) with books. It’s definitely a
welcomed change from ranting and swooning over a book alone! Not to
mention that all the people I met have been nothing but warm and
welcoming, so book blogging itself is a great experience for me 🙂

Q: What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can’t deal with bad editing?

Bad editing is by coup de grâce.
