Feature and Follow Friday #277

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 - Kayl's Krazy Obsession

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging on January 31, 2015. After my introduction post, I posted a review for Allegiant. It was really bad, and I cringe just thinking about it. But now I can say that I have experience.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favorite part about book blogging would have to be sharing my opinion with the world. It's amazing to take a look at stats and followers and realize that each of those numbers represent someone who visited my blog. It doesn't matter if they spent five second or five hours, they were there for long enough to see my thoughts. It's just amazing.

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

I mainly blog about YA novels. Science fiction and dystopian novels are my absolute favorite to blog about, but I blog about pretty much every YA genre. And sometimes I'll throw a an adult book in the mix.

4. What are your favorite books?

If you follow my blog, you know that I am obsessed with anything written by Jennifer L. Armentrout. All of her books are amazing, and I highly recommend each of them. Obsidian is my all time favorite book. Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre is a new fav of mine. And I really enjoy Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series and Michael Grant's Gone series. 

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

The best thing that has happened to me because of book blogging is probably all of the attention I receive from authors. I find it really cool when authors notice me on Twitter or request a review from me. I just love all of the people I have met (virtually) because of book blogging.

Question of the Week: What are your favorite books that have been made into a movie? - Suggested by Girl of 1000 Wonders.

I love the BBC Pride and Prejudice adaptation as well as the 2005 movie. I loved the Little Princess and Secret Garden adaptations from the early 1990s, although they differed from the books - especially the Little Princess movie. One of my favorite movies are Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea (not the third movie). The Anne of Avonlea movie differs vastly from the books it was adapted from, but I think I like the movie better.

I also loved The Martian! Not as good as the book, but still very good. 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.

I have an updated CAPTCHA post!

If you have CAPTCHA word verification enabled on your blog, please take it off. It makes it much more difficult for readers to comment. Please look at my CAPTCHA Eradication Post to learn how to get rid of it.


  1. I don't think I ever read those, maybe Secret Garden, I know I used to have a copy. But I did watch A Little Princess and A Secret Garden a lot on VHS! Ahh...the good old days where you had to rewind a movie after watching it! We were "savvy" and had a separate rewinder machine so we could pop in the next tape! LOL!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I loved all the same movies you just mentioned. However, I wish The Martian would have been more accurate. Great choices! Old follower. :D

  3. Glad you mentioned the Martian. I have to make time to see that! I'm not familiar with the old Anne and Austin movies...I remember the Secret Garden movie, though. I'm not sure I've ever read that book, though! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Hi Allison, I'm following you through BlogLovin', Twitter and GFC. I'm a new twitter follower. Old follower other wise. :)

  5. I've wanted to see The Martian! I really hope it's good.

    Thanks for having me as a double feature! It means a lot!
