Feature and Follow Friday #264

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 - TBD

1. When did you start blogging?


2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?


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


4. What are your favorite books?


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


Question of the Week: If you could get an ARC of any book, already published, or not yet, what would it be? - Suggested by Words I Write Crazy.

I really want a copy of Jennifer E. Smith's upcoming book Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between. I've loved all of her books. I'm also curious about Truthwitch by Susan Dennard based solely on all the hype. I really don't know that much about the book otherwise.

How about you?

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.

Follow on Bloglovin

We have a new button, so update your blogs if you are used to doing this meme!

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow


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
  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. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. 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"
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

Next Week's Question:

If you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be? - Suggested by Life Is Reading.

  7. Not sure what I did, there but must have been sleeping. Is there anyway you can fix my entry to say Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my! instead of the link..oops. :)

  8. I've heard a lot of early buzz about Truthwitch so I'm excited for that one too. Love the cover art as well!

    Here are my FF picks

  9. oh I haven't heard of those two books...but boy the covers alone would get me to look more into them. I think any book from Lisa Kleypas I would love to get as a ARC!!

  10. Hello, Goodbye looks so cute! I don't know if I've seen much about Truthwitch around. I'll have to pay closer attention. Have a fabulous weekend!

  11. Hi Alison! I'm new to #FF so hopefully I did everything right. :)

  12. I've been meaning to read Jennifer E. Smith but haven't had a chance to yet. I'm looking forward to it. I haven't heard of Truthwitch yet but do own two books by Susan Dennard. I love the covers of all of Jennifer E. Smith's books btw. How about you?
