Feature & Follow Friday #70


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 link here for Follow Friday Feature or go to Parajunkee and click 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 Magic Attic




The Magic Attic

I'm a bookworm, a dreamer, a teenager, a hopeless romantic, and a field hockey lover. Often, I can be found helping out at my local library, playing field hockey with the rest of my team, up in a tree in my backyard, or on the window sill with my nose in a book.

My book blog, The Magic Attic, is a YA book blog dedicated to, well, books. None of my friends are really interested in the type of books I am, so I started this blog to get to know other people with the same interests. I enjoy books from all YA genres, but I'm a hopeless romantic at heart, and my favorite genre is YA romance. I have so many favorite books it'll take hours to list them all. However, some of them include Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa, Eve by Anna Carey, and the Demon Trappers series by Jana Oliver. I'm currently reading The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson, and The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees.

Today's Question is something new, an activity. We want to see what you look like! Take a pic with you and your current read! Too shy? Boo! Just post a fun pic you want to share.

Nothing like an extra opportunity to show off my beautiful doggy.

Not the best pic of me but the others were worse


This one's my favorite - Caught him mid-yawn. Total freak occurrence that looks great on camea :-)

Now for the Follow Fun!









RULES To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:





  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers - Skyink.net & The Magic Attic.
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  7. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!








Happy Follow Friday! Follow it up with your twitter address if you want to get that one out!

  41. Your puppy (I call all dogs puppies) is so cute! What's his name? Is he a retriever? Do you love that I'm focusing on your dog and not your book? I told you I was a complete nut when it came to animals.

  42. Great pics. You and your dog look so cute together. I love DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. It's a great book!

  44. I think it's impossible to take a good picture of dogs - mine are always yawning or looking away. Though it's nice they cuddle with you when you read! The closest one of mine came to cuddling was stepping on my book with a muddy paw ... they've been banned since. :)

    Happy FF!

  45. So excited to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone! Have fun with that one!

  71. Your dog looks a lot like mine. Well, except for the fact that my dog would never sit still long enough to have his picture taken with me and a book. My cats on the other hand, like to sit on my books and guard them from intruders.
