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 Feature: Pinker Than Fiction

When did you start blogging?

March this year. I’m still a bit of a newbie!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Learning about new books and authors and getting to know fellow book bloggers.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

Everything YA. I’m a tad obsessed.

What are your favorite books?

Harry Potter by JK Rowling, The Agency by YS Lee, The Day After Forever by Erin Skiffington, Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. I also love all things Maggie Stiefvater (though I STILL haven’t read The Raven Cycle, eeek!), David Levithan, Sarah Dessen and Nicholas Sparks. This year I added a new book to my favourites list, and it is Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley. So much love for that book!

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

Hands down, the best thing has been getting to know and making friends with other book bloggers. Everyone has been so lovely and supportive. As too few of my friends in ‘real life’ enjoy the same books as me, it’s great having people to squee about books with, finally!

Name a book you hated. – Bookish Findings

Vulnerable by Amy Lane

It takes a lot for me to hate a book – but this one I didn’t enjoy at all and then the author had a bad reaction to my review – so it made me really dislike the book and the author. 😀
