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.

The Attic Young Adult Book Reviews

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in July of 2011. In fact, my three year blogoversary is coming up fast!
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Right now, I love reading comments and starting discussions on my posts. The comments I get range from hilarious to insightful and reading them just makes my day.
What type of books do you mainly blog about?
Young adult! I try to read something from every genre, but I love speculative fiction, especially if it’s creepy! I also read a lot of fairytale retellings.
What is your favorite book(s)?
Favorite standalone: Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Favorite series: The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater and The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Other than that, anything by Libba Bray, John Green, and Maggie Stiefvater will do.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Realizing that I have regulars. For the longest time, I really had no idea who was reading my posts until I started to see comments from the same people each week. It feels good to know that people are coming back!
