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.

Our Weekly Feature is.. .A Night's Dream of Books

1.) When did you start blogging?

 

I started in September of 2010. It’s just so incredible how fast time has gone by! But yes, I’ve been blogging for 5 years now!

 

2.) What is your favorite part of book blogging?

 

I really can’t pick just one part. When I first got started, I enjoyed experimenting with blog designs. I finally settled into my present design, which I ADORE, because it’s got so much BLUE in it! So that’s one very enjoyable part about blogging. Of course, I LOVE blogging about books! I love reading YA, and other genres, as well. In fact, I have a second blog for literary fiction, classics, and nonfiction, titled MindSpirit Book  Journeys

 

And last but definitely NOT least, I LOVE meeting other book bloggers, building relationships with them, participating in giveaways…. Did I mention that I just LOVE EVERYTHING about book blogging?

 

3.) What type of books do you mainly blog about?

 

When I first started, I had an eclectic blog. As time went by, though, I decided to start a second blog, and this one, A Night’s Dream of Books, became dedicated to YA, with an occasional adult or New Adult book thrown in. I already mentioned my other blog above, lol.

 

4.) What are your favorite books?

 

OMG, I would probably spend all day here, telling you guys about those….. But I can single out the ones that come up right away. Of course, there’s The Twilight Saga, the Harry Potter series, the Vampire Academy series…..and I LOVE Claudia Gray’s books! My favorite YA genres are fantasy, PNR, and UF. 

 

There are other genres I love, too, but those are for my other blog. But…..I just HAVE to mention one of these: Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë. Oh, the adoration….

 

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

 

The VERY best? Being featured on the Feature & Follow Friday!!  YAY!!!!
