Follow My Blog Friday #121

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.

Our Feature The Y.A. Bookworm Blogger

When did you start blogging?

I started my blog on January 4, 2012 icon smile Feature & Follow #120

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favourite part about book blogging would definitely have to be being able to connect with my readers. I just love the idea that one of my reviews might introduce someone to a fabulous read that they never would have picked up before!

What is your favorite book(s)?

City of Bones By: Cassandra Clare
Vampire Academy By: Richelle Mead
Obsidian By: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Blue Bloods By: Melissa de la Cruz
…..the list goes on !

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
There have been so many great things that have come from book blogging, but I think the best thing would have to be the people I’ve met and talked to along the way! There are so many great bloggers out there that I’ve gotten to know and have been able to “fan-girl” with (swooning over fictional boys alone just isn’t as fun icon razz Feature & Follow #120 )

1. When did you start blogging?

Well this little baby has only been in operation Since August, I decided since I was going to be a professional author ;) that I needed a website. The poor thing gets neglected a lot due to all the time it takes to run my review site Book Me!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Well, on my other site it's partaking in memes and visiting the lovely followers I've made. I've formed some very close friendships with some terrific girls and I'm so thankful to have them in my cyber-life. Carmen is so new but I'm hoping to be able to really use this site as a writing tool. Eventually I'd like to be build a fanbase, post snippets of stories I'm working on, as well as some flash fiction and not just use it as a place where I say, "Oh look, I write books, you can buy them here."

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

There are way too many! I'm a sucker for an Armentrout book, I'll read and love anything by her. But I think my favourite would be Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. That book almost killed me! It was absolutely devastating and so courageous of Tabitha to tackle such a taboo subject, especially in YA. I remember reading the synopsis and thinking, "What would possess anyone to write that, and I wonder whether she pulls it off?" I had to read it immediately, and I'm so glad I did. It's weird how one little fiction book can teach you so much.

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

Being published, without a doubt. I started blogging on Book Me! just to have somewhere to vent after I'd read a book, none of my friends are particularly Bookish people, and since I spent so much time reading and writing, I really felt like I was missing out on some sort of vital connection. I never really grasped just how big the book blogging community was until I started doing the Feature Follow. I'd been working for years at my writing, but it's the writing to an audience that's really helped me hone my voice and have the courage to seek publication.

Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.

The instant in love - the couple see each other, meet each other, I believe I'm in love now let's make love.

The hero and heroine are running from the villains and then they make love.

I hate inappropriately timed love scenes too! I understand the whole adrenaline pumping thing, but find a better time to do all that! Old follower.

Happy Friday!
