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.

When did you start blogging?

I only started blogging in April this year, so I’m still a bit of a newbie 🙂 But so far I’m loving it!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Most of my friends don’t read & don’t get why I love books so much, so I had nobody to gush about my latest reads to. By blogging I get to talk to so many great people & authors who share that crazy passion!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

Mostly YA & NA fantasy, paranormal & of course romance! I’ve been on a bit of a NA romance binge lately 🙂

What is your favorite book(s)?

I can’t choice just one soo… The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling, Anne Of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, Persuasion By Jane Austen, Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout & Embrace by Jessica Shirvington!

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

Well my favourite author Jessica Shirvington loved a review I wrote for one of her books, I then got an arc copy of her new book to review. I absolutely love this woman & the fact that she read my review felt kinda awesome *grins*
