Feature and Follow Friday #265

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 - Big Books and Grand Lattes

1. When did you start blogging?

I started about 2 years ago, but let it fall by the wayside until January of this year. That's when I actually started putting more effort into it.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favorite part is meeting people who feel the same way about books as me. It's great being able to discuss and fangirl over books together!

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

I focus primarily on young adult fantasy and paranormal. There is also some romance and science fiction science fiction there too!

4. What are your favorite books?

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard, The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd, Splintered by A.G. Howard, anything by Jodi Meadows. I could probably list more, but I'll stop!

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

Pretty much the same as my favorite part of blogging answer. Being able to interact with other bloggers and even authors. It's so cool that an author that is a favorite of mine respond to one of my tweets! I just love being able to meet and interact with others who love the same books as me!

Question of the Week: If you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be? - Suggested by Life Is Reading

Ugh. I don't know. At the moment, I'm feeling pretty icky. So I'm wishing to feel better at the moment. I'm stuck in bed for the next few days. I'll have to think about other, better wishes.

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!
