Feature & Follow Friday #59

Welcome to Feature & Follow Friday (err Thursday) on Parajunkee.com

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course 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? First you leave your name here on this post, 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!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

Our Feature  – Belle Books

My name is Emma, I am 24 from Glasgow. Currently in my final year studying tourism with Spanish, and I also speak a little French and Italian. I’ve been an avid reader since I was young, and since reading the Twilight saga I’ve found a whole new love for young adult/paranormal romance/vampire books. Harry Potter will always be my favourite series, it literally was my childhood! I even have a Harry Potter tattoo <3

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

People might not assume this about me, but I’m rather political. But, the thing is I’m political in my house, because polite Southern Girls don’t discuss politics in public, unless they’ve had too much to drink. Or so they say. But, mainly I don’t want to offend anyone, because political views have become almost like religious or even like racial or sexual stances – the wrong lean might get you ostracized. So, I keep quiet, unless I know I’m in similar company.

I do have a point. Being a lover of dystopian fiction, I would write myself into a dystopian – and yes, you might think I’m crazy. No, I don’t want the world as we know it to end! But, really the characters in these books RAIL against the system. They take a stand – and what I would give to have the cojones to do that. Because I think something needs to be done. And I would like to know how I would react? Because everything said and done, would I be the type of person to point to the left and say “He Did It?” Or would I stand up for my beliefs and way of life and say “Hell no”? Even if it were to mean my life was at stake? So write me into The Hunger Games, I’ll be part of District 13 – or write me into 1984 and I’ll protest against Big Brother…hopefully. Never wanted to be a sheep.

Our Feature  – Steph Likes Books

Because of a failure to post by the other feature…our only feature today is Steph Likes Books…

Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?

The funny funny thing is, I didn’t read young adult as a teen. I was reading young adult novels when I was in the age bracket of 7 to 10. By the sixth grade I was reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz. When I was done with the horror genre I went feet first into Fantasy – tearing through series like the Dragon Lance series (I mean Tanis Half-Elven was epic, probably my first fiction crush). When I went through series after series…fantasy was always very close to the  science fiction section, so I began picking up the greats like Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke…and then the fabulous Adams, Keyes, Card,

Our Feature  – Bonnie @ Hands and Home

Above all I am a proud wife and mother who has the privilege of spending my days with my 2 beautiful daughters. Hands and Home combines my 3 passions, my family (including natural family living), creating, and of course my first ever passion, reading.

Reading is such an important part of my day and my favourite place to go with my girls is the library. I read just about anything, I enjoy reading Paranormal/Fantasy, Christian or Literary Fiction, Young Adult, Women’s Fiction (some chic lit), Cultural Fiction, Fantasy… Basically if it is well written with strong characters I will most likely love it!

Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).

I know this might sound silly, but I read the Madeleine L’Engle series, A WRINKLE IN TIME at a young age and it did sort of change my childhood. In the books the parents aren’t always right and the children save the day, things aren’t what they appear to be and the deeper meanings of the novel were apparent to me as young as I was. It was one of those eye openers…like “You are right!” Parents aren’t always right…sometimes kids can make a difference. Well there went my childhood…

Our Feature  – The Book Addicted Girl

Hi, my name’s Megan, and I’m a self confessed Book Addict. I talk about books non-stop.  And although my family is bookish, I started to annoy even them with my constant chatter about what I was reading, my favourite characters,  etc.  I started blogging because I wanted to find fellow YA book readers.  And I did!
What makes me different is my insanity.  I read anything – and I mean anything.  I always have two or three books on my person in my ridiculously big bag.  My favourite kind of books are everything paranormal, though recently I’ve developed a love for contempory, dystopian and historical novels.  A few of my favourites are Vampire Academy, The Mortal Instruments, The Hunger Games, The Iron Fey series, If I Stay, Before I Die and Harry Potter.  I’m currently reading seven books, though I’m concentrating on Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey and Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs.  I can never seem to read just one book at a time…

Q. Let’s step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?

After my trip to Vegas…there is only one T-Shirt that would describe me.

Our Feature  – The Bloggers of: We Fancy Books

We Fancy Books

Our blog is a group blog so we have different answers…

Something about us and why we started blogging… 

TheJay2xA : Our blog is We Fancy Books; we named it like this because we really love to read books. Our blog is mainly for the three of us. We post MeMes and reviews of what we have just read. What made you start a book blog? Together with my two friends we made We Fancy Books

AddictedToV: I got really into books this year, and now reading has been part of my daily routine. At first I started in Goodreads and was exposed more in books, then I started to write my own reviews too. I also made my own blog eventually, but it was when my friend (in real life) TheJay2xA asked me to collaborate with him for a book blog, and I liked the idea, so here we are now (:

Ere Penera: I was reading too much books the past few days and I can’t help but tweet about how exciting those books were. And then my tweet buddy, Jayjay, asked me to join him in a book blog. And so I said okay even if I didn’t know exactly what’s to be done or written in it. He just told me I’d submit book reviews which was fine with me. But it turned out there are actually lots of other activities in a book blog so I’m starting to learn stuffs about it.

Books we read and favorite genre 

TheJay2xA: I personally like Young Adult and Contemporary books, mystery thriller, paranormal romance and dystopian is also some of favorite genre.

AddictedToV: Young adult, science fiction, mystery, romance, dystopian, etc. As long as it’s exciting, entertaining and won’t give me much headache understanding complicated matters, I’m into it. 

Era Penera: I really like young-adult fantasy. If it’s full of action or if there are mysteries then it’d be so much better.

Q. Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?
