Follow My Blog Friday #112

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.

2. Follow our Featured Bloggers - Carmen of Book Me and AwsomeSauce Book Club

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

When did you start blogging?

All the way back in March 2012! I know, I’m practically ancient!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Oh my goodness, so many things! I love the memes! Dropping by every week to visit blogging buddies, and meeting new people that are as book crazy as I am! We have a really strong community and aside from the occasional “scandal”, as a whole everyone is really supportive of one another! And yeah, the review copies are kinda sweet, but I don’t think you could do this blogging thing if your heart wasn’t in it! Free books don’t necessarily guarantee a great blog!

What is your favorite book(s)?

Gah! This is such a tough question! Okay, I’m going to limit it to five or we’ll be here all day:

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma (that book almost killed me)
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Blackbrooke by Emma Silver
Easy by Tammara Webber
City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare

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

I’ve been fortunate enough to meet some really wonderful authors and bloggers through Book Me! There are some fantastic bloggers out there that work really hard at what they do, which is amazing considering what drives them is solely their need to talk about the books they love!

Having to regularly update my blog has really honed my skills and “Voice” as a writer, so that’s been invaluable!

And without the support of Book Me!’s followers, and a very special author I know . . . ahm . . . Emma Silver, I probably never would have had the courage to submit my work to a publishing house. Now I have a short story being published by Crooked Cat Publishing and I’m hoping to finally get my YA series off the ground in the next year!

1. When did you start blogging?

Amber: I Started the blog in January 2011 and Amber R. jumped on in May 2011.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Meeting all the other bloggers and talking to authors. We love having a group of people that love reading as much as we do. Plus getting to recommend books to other people and having them fall in love with a book just based on our recommendation is amazingly awesome!

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

This is a toughy, we love so many books. How much time do you have? lol okay okay if we have to pick just a few we'd say anything from Keri Arthur (can't just pick one of her series) Chicagoland Vampire series, Night Huntress series, Morganville Vampire series, Darkest London series, Otherworld series, Highlander series by KMM, Okay we must stop now or else we will just keep going.

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

There have been a lot of amazing things that have happened due to blogging, but we must say the best thing ever is meeting Rachel Caine and having a few drinks with her. We got to sit there and talk to her and she knew who we were by our blog and it was surreal. If you know us then you know we talk about this moment often. We are still stunned that it happened and will continue talking about it forever!

Q: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved? 

I really liked enjoyed reading this book because of the great characters, interesting legend and a psychopathic killer.
