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 Phantasmic Reads

When did you start blogging?

I’m still a newbie. My first post went up in late-January this year, so I haven’t even been at it six months.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

It’s a common answer, but the people. Definitely my fellow bloggers. All of the bloggers who’ve been at this for a while are helpful, welcoming, and sweet. And I’ve met many wonderful authors that I might never have made contact with. It’s refreshing to realize they are just normal people like us!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I’m still finding my way, but my plan was to primarily blog about my favorites – paranormal romance, urban fantasy, high fantasy, and some mysteries. Thanks to blogging, I have discovered a few new (to me) authors who write NA and YA, so I’ve had some of those on the blog, too.

What is your favorite book(s)?

Gah! This is one of the hardest questions to answer, because it’s constantly changing. I do have several books that I re-read often, especially when I’m in a reading rut. Those include the Harry Potter series, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, some of the Dresden Files, some Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich, and some of the In Death books by JD Robb.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?

Besides all the cool people I’ve met? πŸ™‚ I have to be honest – that’s really the best. I cannot say enough about how amazing this community is!
