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 is Chyna and Jyra Lite-Rate-Ture!

When did you start blogging?
We started Lite-RATE-ture around August-September 2012 so we are still new actually and it ‘s been a fun ride! This blog is the best thing that has ever happened to me in the internet world.

What is your favorite part of book bogging?
Well for me…I love blogging because I get to bond with many other readers because well..I grew up in a family that hates to read so yeah…I also got to interact with some authors and I also get lucky a few times when I enter contests and rafflecopters haha Making this blog made me more open to other readers out there. I couldn’t be more happy than I am now. My parents are now complaining why I’m always on the internet well…you can notice that I’m always on my blog LOL

What is you favorite book(s)?
hmm….that’s a challenge I’ve read many great books this year and it’s really hard to answer that. I can give you some books I really love like Legend, Divergent, Iron King, Half-Blood, Obsidian, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and many more. It’s too hard to choose but if you really want me to pick I would go for HAlf-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout.

What has been the best things that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The best thing that has ever happened to me is having an opportunity to be able to interact with readers who have similar interest with me. And also I got to be more updated with books and authors. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of the blogging world. 😉

Q: What have you learned from book blogging that you didn’t know before about the publishing industry?

I have learned a ton from the publishing industry. About ARCs, Galleys and all types of terminology. I didn’t know anything about publishing – and now I know a bit 😉
