Welcome to the Feature & Follow

How does this work? The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. 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 blogger Mab @ Mab is Mab

When did you start blogging? I created my blog about three years ago, but due to work and life changes in the beginning, I have only really been able to give it proper attention in the past year, and I love it! I couldn’t imagine not having my blog now!

What is your favorite part of book blogging? I love the discussion books create. No-one has the same opinion or interpretation, it’s great! I love it when someone leaves a comment on one of my reviews, challenging or questioning it. I love a good discussion!

What type of books do you mainly blog about? I mostly read and review ghosts stories, dark fiction and horror, though I am prone to needing some lighter, comic relief reading after all that, too! So you’ll also find some YA fiction on the blog.

What is your favorite book(s)? My favourite book of all time is The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman. I won it in a writing competition at school and it has sentimental value to me. A lot of people consider it the weakest of the trilogy, but it’s the book with the most “Will” in it, and I adore Will!

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging? I have met so many great new people through book blogging. It has even helped strengthen a friendship that has been stretched miles apart by deserts and seas; we always have our blogs to meet and debate our books on!

Ellora’s Cave Party RT12

I wish I was attending RT again!!! I wish I wish. I went to 2012 and I loved it. I plan on attending the one in 2014, but I just couldn’t make it this year…of course the year that all the cool people are going.ย  Not saying that there weren’t cool people at 2012 – there were – but I could get really drunk with the people that are going this year and wake up regretting the shit that I did the night before. That is my kind of fun!
