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.

Sara in Bookland

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging two years ago, exactly in June. I had recently started to follow some book blogs and I thought: why not having my own book blog? That’s how Sara In Bookland was born, simply as an experiment ! I fell in love with everything that involved book blogging : reviews, interviews, weekly meme and giveaways (those were probably my favourites!)

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
What I love the most about book blogging is receiving comments and being in touch with other readers who may share (or not) my thoughts about books. I love writing and publishing reviews but seeing how people react to your own opinion it’s probably the most interesting part.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I basically read all kind of books : Fantasy, YA, contemporary, Horror, historical romances. It’s difficult to say what I mainly blog about .. I guess we could say Fantasy?!

What is your favorite book(s)?
That’s a tough one ! I have to admit that the first series I fell in love with was the Mortal Instruments by C.Clare (I probably started devouring books after that), but then there are other series I need to mention, like THG or the Divergent series. Speaking of stand-alone books I loved : The Shadow of the Wind, The Picture of Dorian Gray, the Hypnotist and Looking for Alaska. Really can’t choose one.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The best thing that has happened to me because of book blogging is certainly the possibility of receiving review copies from authors that lived completely on the other side of the world. Having this kind of relationships for me has been completely unforgettable ! It is amazing  to see how people trust in you, how they are available and willing to “bet” on you and on your opinion.
