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.

Parajunkee, Urban Fantasy, Blogger TipsWords I Write Crazy

When did you start blogging?

March 2011. Just when I was moving from my writing phase 🙂 I just love books so much, and blogging became the next!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Talking about books! I’m totally obsessed with books, they are my life, and yeah, I am crazy, but, books, they’re just so loveable and obsess-over able!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

YA. A bit of romance, and mystery, from my favourite authors. But YA is my main thing, because it’s just so diverse and different and unique!

What is your favorite book(s)?

Top of my head? Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, Acheron/Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Heart of the Dragon by Gena Showalter. All 3 are favourite authors, and they’re that way because of these books!

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

I’ll have to go with the selfish answer-ARC’s. I just love to read, and getting books before they come out, to devour them earlier, to not have to wait in torture as long, is just the best!
