Welcome to the Feature & Follow

Increase Blog FollowersThe 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? 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 Rotten Apple Reads

Rotten Apple Reads

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging back in November of 2011, I still feels like yesterday because I still have so much to learn!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favorite part about blogging is of course my followers! If it wasn’t for all of you I would not be blogging at all, it is your comments,thoughts and opinions that keep RARs going 🙂 I would have never met my wonderful co-bloggers Antonia and Adriana either, they are the BEST!! Also having a book blog gives me a great excuse to buy/read MORE BOOKS!!!!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I would say RARs sticks to Young Adult alot more than the other genres out there only because I haven’t yet experience them yet but my co-bloggers have introduced me to lots of other non-Young Adult-ish books that I can’t wait to read this year 🙂

What is your favorite book(s)?

Vampire Academy/BloodLines Elanor&Park(this one changed my life) Covenant Series The Mortal Instrument series Let The Sky Fall Blood Red Road Crewel Cinder Beautiful Creatures

I could go on forever but if you haven’t read any of these I suggest you check them out!

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

I would say going to BEA was the best thing ever!!!!! I met so many people that actually knew my blog and followed!!! That just gives me chills every time and I love it.
