Follow My Blog Friday #127


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 is Alyana and Tiff of Read, Breath, Read

3468b40 Feature & Follow #127

1. When did you start blogging?

We started Read, Breathe, Read in August of this year (August 9, 2012 to be exact) so our blog is fairly new. 4 months in and it’s been a thrill so far!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Besides the actual reading and reviewing of course, we love interacting with other book lovers! It’s always fun to meet other people who have as much passion for literature as we do. And also, as surprising as it sounds, we enjoy seeing our TBR pile skyrocket because of our exposure to the world of authors, publishers, and bloggers, and though it’s extremely hard to keep up, discovering all these new novels never fails to put smiles on our faces. (And empty our wallets! LOL)

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

An answer to this question is impossible. Both of us have too many favorite books to enumerate! Authors like Julie Kagawa, Cassandra Clare, Veronica Roth, Michelle Hodkin, Becca Fitzpatrick, Tahereh Mafi, Lauren Oliver, Josephine Angelini, Amy Plum, Colleen Houck, Andrea Cremer, Marie Lu, and Aimee Carter are just some of the authors that make it on top of our to-read and to-buy lists, though!

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


The best thing that ever happened to us while book blogging is that we were able to interact with so many bloggers- especially here in the Philippines! Another is getting review requests from authors. The thrill of it just never goes away!



Our Feature -My Library in the Making

1. When did you start blogging?

I actually started back in January of this year, but I stopped by February because the responsibility overwhelmed me. Then, in September, I decided to give it another try, and now I can't see myself stopping again. Ever.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

The part where I read books, of course! XD I also love it when I influence someone's decision to read a book or not, haha!

3. What is your favorite book(s)?

Like what John Green said, "I don't have a favorite book. I have hundreds." Anyway, I'm really easy to please, so give me a great plot, fast pacing, lots of action and mystery, a well-developed romance, and top it all off with fun and witty characters, and you shall own my fickle heart. But to give you an idea, here are some of my precious favorites: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith, Delirium by Lauren Oliver, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, Divergent by Veronica Roth, Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi, and A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin.

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

Aside from meeting new friends, I also feel very lucky to be able to connect with my favorite authors! I know I could still do that even if I weren't a blogger, but I just love it when authors say stuff like "You made my day!" when they read my book reviews.

Q: What is the last book that made you cry? Tell us about the scene ...

Hmm this is a very good question!  I have never come across a book that has made me cry yet!  I've read some that have made me feel very sorry for the character(s) or sad.

I seem to cry often when I read. They're not even sad books. If the book is good I seem to develop this emotional attachment to the characters.
