Feature and Follow Friday #230

Welcome to the Feature & Follow

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

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? 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 ayou 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.

How To Become a Featured Blog?

We pick our featured blogs randomly each week from the blogs who participated the week before.

Please be sure to feature your e-mail address clearly on your blog. Either on the main blog, on a Contact page, or on an About Me page. If I can't find your email easily, I will choose a different blog to feature.

Our Feature - Mo_Books

1. When did you start blogging?

I've been happily blogging since March 2013. It's been almost two years, and I'm still absolutely loving it.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Hmm, it's hard to pick. I will say finding bookish friends, and the free books =D

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

The majority of the books I review are YA. My favourite genres right now are retellings, dystopian and science fiction.

4. What are your favorite books?

A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin

Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

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

The best thing that has happened to me besides meeting a lot of new and awesome people, has been that I've been in contact with a few of my favourite authors. I love being able to chat with them and ask questions. Also I do love getting book mail from publishers =D

Question of the Week: Do you decide in advance what you read for the coming week or month? Why / why not? - Suggested by Unconventional Book Views.

Yes and no. I have some very broad yearly breakdowns. I like to read the entire Harry Potter series every autumn and Pride and Prejudice sometime in December. I got started a little late with Harry this year, but I'm currently in Prisoner of Azkaban.

For the most part, I finish a book and then pick whichever one interests me most. Lately, I've been trying to alternate between adult and YA books a little more than I used to. As well as print and e-books. But there isn't a firm routine.

Now for the Follow Fun!

With GFC going the way of the dodo bird for many bloggers, there is no better time to start following blogs via RSS feed. If you use a reader, it would be great if you followed my RSS directly.

  1. I never plan what I am going to read... until recently. I just really need to read the books I own!!

  2. I don't really plan as I'm a mood reader. Love the fact that you read Harry Potter so often, such a fantastic series.
    Have a great week.
    Here is my FF.

  3. I dont plan my reading schedule and navigate from one book to another based on my mood and interest. :)
