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 isΒ ~ Bookingly Yours ~

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in July or August 2008 – in Multiply. I transferred my posts to Blogger a few months after because of Multiply’s limited features. The reason why I started blogging was to keep a list of my bought books. For three years, I only read and blog every Friday night to Sunday morning because of my hectic schedule at work. It was only in 2011 that I had more free time to read and blog because I changed career (now working as a college instructor, teach and go style).
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Reading, promoting new books and knowing the authors behind those books. And of course meeting awesome bloggers!
What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I am an eclectic reader, I enjoy reading different genres but I prefer paranormal romance, horror and young adult books.
What is your favorite book(s)?
LOTR – all-time-favorite! I even named my kids after the LOTR characters. Named my
7 yo son, Elessar Andrei, after King Elessar (Aragorn) and my 4 yo daughter, Eowyn Audrey after Princess Eowyn, niece of King Theoden of Rohan.
Next is Vampire Academy and Georgina Kincaid series, so in love with these two written by Richelle Mead.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I love to read other posts and reviews of other bloggers, I realized that there are too many great books from unknown/new authors. Before I started blogging, I tend to stay away from unknown authors. I never browse books whenever I’m inside the bookstore. It’s like I go to specific aisle and would only look at books written by famous authors.
