Follow My Blog Friday #103

If you are new to the FF fun, Feature and 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, myself of course 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, 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 drop down link above FEATURES and Features and Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

This Meme is hosted by Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Alison from Alison Can Read on Fridays.

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

1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host {} {}and any one else you want to follow on the list.

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging in 2006. It all started because of a book I saw in the bookstore called, Where’s Raed by a chap calling himself Salam Pax. This book was an inside look at Iraq from a Baghdad blogger. Salam Pax was using the Blogger platform. And so, curious, I checked it out. I checked it out a few times before stumbling upon a blog (now since taken down) called The Possibilities of Fire, a blog mostly about US politics and the like. There were a number of us from across the political spectrum that started blogs because of Possibilities of Fire. I am still friends with one of those bloggers today. As far as book blogging, I started my book blog about 6 months ago or so.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Finding new books to read that I never knew even existed! Meeting new bookophiles! And … I must admit getting books for free!

What is your favorite book(s)?

Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Nieffenegger
The Little Prince by Antoine de St. Exupery

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

The people, the other book bloggers, you know, the book blogging community. It’s fabulous, so fabulous.

Head Stuck in a Book

1. When did you start blogging?

I only started blogging October of last year, I used to visit all these different blogs and one day I thought you know what, I love reading why don't I start a blog of my own.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I love the fact that there are so many people interested in reading that are also reading the same genre's as I do, I'm the only person who reads in my house so it's nice to be able to communicate with people that share the same passion for reading that I do.

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

For anyone that visits my site during Feature Follow Friday most of the questions are answered with using my favourite series Twilight - Stephenie Meyer, the reason I got into the paranormal genre was because of Twilight, I also love Harry Potter - J.K Rowling, The Mortal Instruments - Cassandra Clare, The Black Dagger Brotherhood - J.R Ward I could go on and on.

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

I think that there's a lot of things not just one, I love it when an author sends me a message asking me specifically whether I'd review a book for them, or people that want me to take part in blog tours it makes it even more special when it's a publisher asking you it makes me feel like I'm doing something right and I feel extremely grateful, when I started this blog I never expected it to go as well as it has especially since there are so many other blogs out there. And all the people you meet while blogging is fantastic, but mostly it's just people care enough to leave comments on your posts, I think it's the best decision I've ever made starting up this blog. Oh and one of the best things so far is being a feature on Feature Follow Friday!

Q: If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

The book I would love to unread is "Narcissus in Chains" by Laurell K. Hamilton.  I'm not a big Micah fan so I want to erase that shower scene from my brain.  Also I would like to forget about the Ardeur she has inherited from Jean-Claude.
