Feature & Follow Friday #56

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, Rachel of Parajunkee 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!

*Thanks so much to Rachel for allowing me to be part of the Follow Friday fun. Parajunkee is one of the best blogs out there and FF is a highlight of the blogging community. The FF has been one of my favorite parts of my week for over a year and I'm so excited to help my fellow book bloggers get to know each other better.

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 - The Little Book Blog



I'm 18, just graduated from high school and I LOVE reading! Reading is my escape from reality. I also love movies, music, and writing. I love any type of movies as long as their good. I also love any type of music but I prefer Indie Rock. I'm addicted to Pepsi and Coffee. I love sleep, so much that coffee has no effect on me anymore. In fact, coffee makes me sleepy. I'm very funny or at least I think so. My favorite books are The Hunger Games Trilogy, Twilight Saga, The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy and a couple more.

The first reason I started blogging is because I wanted to keep track of what I've read and my opinions on it. I had a journal but it started to rip and I would lose it all the time. So, I thought a blog would be a better option. The second reason is that I want to share my opinion on books. I haven't found one other person who loves to read as much as I do. None of my friends or family members really understand why I love to read so much. I have no one to talk about books with, so I was hoping that with the blog I could put my opinion out there and get others opinions back as well."

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


I'm going to cheat here because I can't think of any T-Shirts that describe me. Instead, I'm going to post some CafePress T-shirts I like:

Update: Just had to add one of my favorite slogans -

  39. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love your shirt picks ~ especially the first one. Oh, and P.S. I was born in 81 too! So, yeah. Went to school in the 90's but seriously, the grunge look? didn't stick with me. But for some reason I hold a special place for mis-matched clothing, mesh and arm warmers. (Actually I own some leg warmers too, but don't tell anyone. I only wear them when I'm in a dress walking across campus during Winter Quarter. See? It's practical!).

    Thanks again!
