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 Reach for the Stars…and the Books!

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging on June 7, 2011 after my best friend and I coaxed each other into starting our own book blogs.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
My favorite part of book blogging is being able to share my bookish thoughts and opinions with an audience who can relate to and appreciate what I have to say.

What are your favorite books?
All-time favorites: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling
Recent YA favorites: Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I’ve met a number of people who have become some of my closest friends and I’ve also had the pleasure of personally speaking with multiple amazing authors due to my status as a book blogger.

Q: Books are turned into movies all the time! Turn it around. What movie would make a great book?

I was just thinking this! Alison must have read my mind with this question!! But, it was actually a television show. I’ve been reading a lot of post-apocalyptic fiction lately. I get that way during the holidays. Freud would have a field day with me right? Well, I was just thinking that the television show Jericho would have made a great book. Or at least the premise of the show. Then I guess to do a movie. I really loved the TOMORROW WHEN THE WORLD ENDS books and movie, so do a RED DAWN book – full circle. 😉
