Book Blogger Hop

The 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 Readdicts

If you were to get a tattoo, what would it say or what would the graphic be? Or if you have a tattoo, share a picture and its meaning.

Janhvi: I already have a tattoo of a butterfly on my neck. It symbolizes beauty, grace, life and change. But I do want another one which says “read.” On my wrist. It will be a matching one with my BFF and co blogger, Sarika.

Sarika: I don’t have any tattoo(s). Janhvi has already said what was on my mind and I’m hoping that happens soon. Other than that, I would love to get a few very magical words tattooed.

When did you start blogging?

Janhvi: We started blogging in August 2012. We are going to be celebrating our 3 year Blogoversary soon. Can’t believe it’s been 3 years already!

Sarika: Janhvi and I started blogging in 2012, so we’ve been blogging for nearly three years.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Janhvi: Meeting other bloggers and finding out new books is the most exciting part. I love that we can share our love for books through blogging.

Sarika: My most favourite part about book blogging is definitely ranting about books. Whether it is writing reviews, pretending a book character is real, getting recommendations from other readers, recommending books to others, drooling over book pictures, endlessly stalking authors… It is so much fun. Also, I’ve met some really spectacular people because of blogging, and I feel proud to call them my friends.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

Janhvi: Well, Sarika and I have pretty different reading tastes so I’d say we are pretty diverse in our reviews. I love reading any and all kinds of romances with a dash of young adult.

Sarika: Even though I love to read anything and everything, I find myself mostly drawn to contemporary realistic fiction and LGBT reads, so I try to include them in my reading, and hence, blogging list. Having done my Masters in French literature, I also make sure to share some of French marvels that I come across.

What are your favorite books?

Janhvi: The Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh, The Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis, F.B.I/U.S.Attorney series by Julie James, The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay, I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios..this list can go on and on..

Sarika: That’s a very tough one! Some of my favourites are: the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, The Stranger by Albert Camus, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan, Made of Stars by Kelley York and many, many more.

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

Janhvi: Meeting new people is very cool. We also love reading all the comments people post on our blog. Getting to read arcs is also a pretty sweet deal.

Sarika: That would definitely be the fact that I can freely and easily spread my love for books and it has definitely got Janhvi and I closer. Getting to know authors and fellow readers is an added bonus.

I have a few tattoos, and sure, maybe I could take a picture and show you…but I’m not feeling it.
