Follow My Blog Friday #139

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?

Just a few months ago. December 4th last year! I was already a member of Goodreads and through that site, I met other bloggers and reviewers and just started doing it myself. I’ve always loved reading but never thought about reviewing or blogging until I discovered Goodreads and I’ve grown to love that site so much over the past few months. I wouldn’t have read half the books I have and adore now if it weren’t for Goodreads.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Reading and reviewing books. I’m still growing as a reviewer, but I learn each day and hope to get as good as Steph and Kat from Cuddlebuggery or you guys. But I love doing it and I love that it helps an author to receive a good review from someone.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

A lot. Mostly Young Adult I think. I love so a lot of genres, but YA and Fantasy are probably main genres.

What is your favorite book(s)?

Oh god, that question. It’s so hard to answer. At the moment my favorite book is Hidden Gates by D.T. Dyllin and its sequel Broken Gates. I love those books so much and Dara is an incredible writer. But I also love the books from J.A. Redmerski, Colleen Hoover, H.D. Gordon, Marissa Meyer,… A lot of talented authors in the world! 

Our Feature - Pinkindle

1. When did you start blogging?

I started my little blog on November 26, 2011!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I love having my own space on the internet where I can share my opinion on the books I'm reading. It's great when someone leaves a comment on a review saying that it helped them decided whether or not to pick up a particular book. I also love when I discover other fans of lesser known books through my reviews!

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I read just about anything, so I don't really have a "main type" that I post about. I guess most of my reviews are YA and Paranormal, but I also post reviews of Adult books.

4. What is your favorite book(s)?

My absolute favorite is actually a nonfiction title, Sleeping Naked is Green by Vanessa Farquharson. I was an Environmental Science major, so of course I found the authors journey to a greener lifestyle very interesting. My other favorites include The Host by Stephenie Meyer, Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma, the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead, and Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi (Chapter 62!).

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

Getting nominated as an Overall Best Blog for the BBTC! That was really awesome and unexpected!

Q: Activity! Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.

My backyard which is pretty big and I'm surrounded by fruit trees and a fishpond.  If I get too hot or want more privacy I can read under the patio.
