Follow My Blog Friday #132



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 briefly started a book blog back in 2011, but didn’t know about the awesome community that was out there, so ended up giving up on that first try. However, when I stumbled across the book blogging community, I knew I had to try again in March 2012 and it has been much more successful so far and so much more fun with friends!
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I have to choose just one?? Well, then it’ll have to be reading what everyone else thinks about new (and old!) books and finding out about books I would have never noticed otherwise. It has helped me expand my reading and also find so many more books that I absolutely love!
What type of books do you mainly blog about?
Science-fiction and fantasy all the way! This includes adult and YA in fairly equal amounts though .
What is your favorite book(s)?
I’m going to sneak in two here since I have two main categories of books. For the older and more sci-fi category Robert Heinlein’s To Sail Beyond the Sunset. It helped me through all the angsty teen years . In the newer and more fantasy focused category (I don’t know why the categories are organized by age and genre that way, just happened to work out, haha), I have to say Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris. That book is some ridiculously epic fantasy and I wish he would make a sequel!!
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I partially eluded to this already, but I have found out about and read so many books that I would never have been exposed to if I hadn’t joined in the book blogging community. In addition though, those recommendations come from all the awesome people I have met that make this so much more fun! Blogging adds this whole new dimension to reading, it’s freaking awesome.

Q: Who is your favorite villain from a book?

I really like Ian from the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost, Trent Kalamack from The Hollows series by Kim Harrison and Olaf from the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton.

Ian is an awesome answer! He is a villain who can easily be a hero down the road...I hope. Old GFC follower.

Happy Friday!

Olaf from the Anita Blake series is a great choice! What a seriously creepy dude. In fact, that's putting it mildly! He makes me physically shudder.

New follower!
