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 Bibliotaph’s Reviews

 When did you start blogging?

I started my professional blog back in August, I’ve been kicking around on various blogging platforms since 2005.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I really, really enjoy writing the reviews and posting upcoming movies and books for people to see.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I read a lot of Young Adult novels, so that tends to be what I blog about most. I also have a fair number of comic books and historical fiction novels I like to read too.

What is your favorite book(s)?

Oooh, that’s a tough question. I suppose some of my favorites are the Harry Potter novels, the Redwall Abbey novels, and the Dragonriders of Pern novels.

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

I’ve met a lot of people through it, plus I had an author offer to send me a copy of his novel if I’d review it. I’m in the process of reading that novel now actually.

 

And guess who won…last weeks VLOGGING endeavors!?

We had a tough time deciding so emails went out late – so Melissa will be featured twice…tonight as the pick, next week with her questions.  Melissa won because of her use of Rainbow Dash and the repetitive use of the word Awesome.

This weeks Question:

Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?

Well technically the TV show. I really didn’t enjoy WITCHES OF EAST END the book, but I am lovin’ on the television show.
