Follow My Blog Friday #125

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.

When did you start blogging?

I started really blogging a little earlier this year in May after my father passed. Seeing as how I didn’t feel like I had anyone to talk to, I thought prose & poetry could help with that. I’ve had a book tumblr for a while and it just didn’t feel like it was enough for what I wanted to venture into. I thought I wanted to make a bigger splash in professionalism and seriousness by starting a real blog, in which people cared just a little bit more about what I had to say.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Feeling that I have some sort of purpose. It feels nice to be acknowledged and have my opinion on something matter, even if for a second. It’s also extremely satisfying to get to know the other bloggers out there who share my interests in books and writing. Before, I was led to believe by others that my constant love of reading was a waste. People can be funny in that way.

What is your favorite book(s)?

This is a loaded question and you know it, haha! WELL, as my answer for this week’s question would show, one of my favorite series is the Charley Davidson series, which I just discovered this year. I also love some of the Harry Potter books, Agatha Christie Poirot mysteries, the Song of Ice and Fire series and a lot of Dickens’, Hemingway’s and Steinbeck’s works. If I had to simplify it further, I’d have to say in non-fiction And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie and in fiction Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt are my favorite books.

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

Well, I suppose the best thing so far has just been my state of mind is more stable. Although I’m still unemployed (and seriously still looking) reading, writing and blogging seem to be a great way of uplifting myself, even if my family think it’s a waste of time. It keeps my mind occupied and helps maintain my creativity, and for that I am truly grateful.

Our Feature -Oh! Paper Pages

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging in November 2011. I recently celebrated my first year of book blogging by purchasing a Kindle!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Interacting with other bloggers is my favorite aspect of book blogging. I have made several friends as a result of a shared passion of books. Ashley from Ashley Loves Books is my favorite book blogging buddy. I also enjoy receiving recommendations about books that I probably would not have noticed on my own. Joining Twitter and following my favorite book bloggers and publishers was also a great decision. Authors and publishers tweet the most interesting comments and articles. I definitely recommend that new bloggers check out Twitter and start following!

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

I love the Harry Potter series and Pride and Prejudice. I reread those books most often and could live happily on a diet of Potter and Darcy. My favorite books of 2012 are I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

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

I went to ALA in Anaheim, which was an incredible experience. To be surrounded by people who are just as in love with words and characters as I am made me feel happy.

Q: Activity! Who is your to-die-for book crush? What do you think they look like? Add an image to make us all happy. 

I happen to have four at the moment and they are:

1.  Zarek from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series (Dance with the Devil)
2.  Zsadist from J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series (Lover Awakened)
3.  Noah Shaw from Michelle Hodkin's Mara Dryer series
4.  Jackson Devereux (aka Jack Daniels) from Kresley Cole's Arcana Chronicles series
