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 Dandelion Wine Book Blog

When did you start blogging? I started blogging in March of 2013. I had to take a big break during the summer and fall for medical issues and I’ve only been back in the swing of blogging the last couple of months.

What is your favorite part of book blogging? Well I do enjoy getting advanced copies of books but I also have met a lot of great people and have made some great new friends. Pretty much everyone that I met is truly amazing, kind and helpful and they definitely make blogging more fun.

What type of books do you mainly blog about? I read a lot of fantasy, urban and high, as well as a lot of contemporary romance. I don’t stick to just YA or Adult, I enjoy both. I pretty much enjoy all types of books but fantasy is definitely my go to ‘cheer me up’ genre.

What is your favorite book(s)? I have a ton, but one of my absolutely favorite series is The Hollow series by Kim Harrison. The Undead Pool, the 12th book in the series, comes out in February. I’m incredibly excited about it and I’m sure I’ve mentioned it at least five times already this year on my blog!

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging? Just this last week I finally got up the nerve to request some books over at Edelweiss, I’ve mainly just stuck to Netgalley, well I got approved for my first book a few days ago and I was really excited! I’ve also made some great friendships with authors and they now send me advanced copies of their books.
