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 this week:

My Midnight Fantasies

 

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging April, 2012 and it opened my eyes to a world I didn’t know existed. I wish I would have started earlier.
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I love talking about books, meeting fellow book lovers, and finding new books through bloggers. I love how we all share the same love of books and the book community is so friendly, communicating and recommending books.
What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I started blogging about YA, but now that I’ve done this for awhile I decided to branch out about six months ago and I’m also liking NA, Contemporary Romance. But I think my main focus now is anything with a good romance in it.
What is your favorite book(s)?
So many… The Mortal Instruments Series By Cassandra Clare
The Existence Series (YA), The Sea Breeze Series (NA) By Abbi Glines
The Lux Series By Jenny L. Armentrout (Anything by her.)
The Seaside Series By Rachel Van Dyken (Anything by her.)
The Runes Series By Ednah Walters (I’ve read her NA series as well & they’re awesome.)
And so many more.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Many things… though recently I got to speak to one of my favorite authors and I was so excited. She was really awesome! She always takes the time to talk to her fans. I just love talking about books and putting the word out there about great new books.

 

This weeks Question:

How have your reading habits changed in the past few years? Did you get interested in a new genre? Do you read more? Less? Why do you think your habits changed, if they did.

 

I have been reading more Contemporary Romance and New Adult titles then I have in the past. I read about the same. I have been reading a lot more audiobooks though…
