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 MegΒ  @ The Book Asylum

When did you start blogging?
I launched The Book Asylum in October of this year.
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I absolutely love connecting with other book lovers, and chatting about our latest reads. Reading is a passion of mine, and it makes me so happy when I can share that passion with other like-minded people. Getting to know authors on a personal level is pretty awesome too!
What is your favorite book(s)?
This is such a tough question! I honestly don’t think I could name just one, so if you don’t mind I’ll throw out a handful in no particular order and you can take your pick… The Harry Potter series, The Sea of Tranquility, The Edge of Never, The Opportunist, the Experiment in Terror Series, A Matter of Fate, the Fever Series, Mila 18, the Song of Ice and Fire series, The Night Circus, Ready Player One, Winter Sea, State of Wonder, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Macbeth.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I would say the best thing that has happened to me so far has been becoming an organizer of the Boston Author Event which is happening on March 16th, 2013. I adore the other two organizers – Cristina of Cristina’s Book Reviews, and Trish Patel Brinkley (huge fan) – whom I would have never met had it not been for book blogging. It’s pretty amazing to see what dedicated fans can do for the authors they love! As a book blogger, I’ve been able to connect authors with their readers in a meaningful way in the virtual world. Now, I’m excited to be able to do that in March in the real world!


Q: What book do you think everyone should read? If you could gift the entire population with one book?

I should be a good moral Christian and say the Bible right? Should. But, I would probably go for THE ART OF WAR.
