Follow My Blog Friday #116


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 {Parajunkee.com} {Alisoncanread.com}and any one else you want to follow on the list.

1. When did you start blogging?

January of 2010.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I love hearing from other bloggers! Especially on posts, when they’re responding directly about something I’ve put out there. I like the feeling of being connected to other people, and I try to respond to everybody, whether it’s through email or replying to their comment, or on Twitter. Blogging makes being a geek feel cool.

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

First book that always pops into my head when asked this question is “Grave Mercy” by Robin LaFevers (and I just recently discovered it is actually pronounced LaFeeeeeevers, not LaFevers with a soft “e” — the way I had originally been pronouncing it). If I were going to backpack through Europe and could only bring one book, this would totally be it.

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

Besides making so many good friends (and finding out that Twitter does, in fact, serve a purpose), I got to meet my favorite author of all time (right behind J.K. Rowling), Patricia Briggs. If I hadn’t been blogging, that event would’ve passed right by me.

Northern Plunder





1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging under Northern Plunder late last October, it was one the best choices I've made!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Easily the people I've met and come into contact with, everyone is always really pleasant and it makes it a lot more fun knowing that :3

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

The Stand by Stephen King! Of course there's many other that I adore but I struggle finding anything that left as much as an impression with me as this.

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

There's loads of little, every day things such as people leaving meaningful comments, reaching certain goals and finding out about a tonne of books I'd have never used to consider. Also getting to speak to authors which I never thought would be so simple *o* I guess a lot of people forget they're people too :3

Q: What hyped up book was worth all of the fuss?

Wow there are alot of great books worth the fuss and some of my favorites are "Lover Awakened" by J.R. Ward, "Dance With the Devil" by Sherrilyn Kenyon, The Unbecoming of Mara Dryer" by Michelle Hodkins and there are more but I think that is enough for now!
