Follow My Blog Friday #140

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?

December 2006! I had to look at my archives… and I started it mostly as a writing exercise

What is your favorite part of blogging?

Well, I rarely run out of things to say. Having another outlet is a good thing.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

Books. My books. Other books I like. Weird stuff. Movies. Anything that catches my interest. And sometimes I rant.

What is your favorite book(s)?

I’m glad you put that (s) on there…

The Stardoc books by SL Viehl, the Kate Daniels books by Ilona Andrews, the Downside books by Stacia Kane, and the In Death books by JD Robb.

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

Like I said, I started blogging mainly as an exercise…I got the idea from Lynn Viehl/SL Viehl who I teasingly call my guru, and we’ve struck up a friendship. As she is a writer I admire so much and that probably came about mostly thru blogs (mine and hers), I’d probably have to say that.

Our Feature - Cherie Reads

1. When did you start blogging?

I've been blogging in general for over 5 years. I used to have a product review blog. I've been book blogging since September 2012 and I'm loving every minute of it!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Sharing my love of books with others. None of my friends or family are book lovers like I am so I had no one to discuss what I was reading with. Joining the book blogging community allowed me to gush about favorite reads or cringe over the not-so-good ones with a group of people who understand and appreciate my ranting.

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

My reading tastes are pretty eclectic. I stay mostly to fiction but after that almost anything goes. I have a new love of New Adult and I'm a sucker for a good Dystopia, but I'll post about anything from Romance to Sci-Fi to Thriller and everything in between. I usually stay away from Erotica and Horror, though.

4. What is your favorite book(s)?

This question is so tough! My all-time favorite is probably The Princess Bride by William Goldman. It's fantasy and it's funny and just genius, in my opinion. More recent favorites include Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay, And All the Stars by Andrea K. Höst and Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.

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

Interacting with some amazing authors! Have you seen that t-shirt that says, "Authors are my rock stars?" That's how I feel and meeting them and having them actually talk to me or personally reply to emails is amazing.

Q: What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre, or is it a certain type of book?

I have three genre guilty pleasures and one author and they are:

1.  Erotic Romance - I don't read this genre that much but I do enjoy reading "The Sinners on Tour" series by Olivia Cunning.

2.  Bodice-Rippers - I love reading this genre and I sometimes like to re-read a favorite author (ex: Rosemary Rogers, Karen Robards, etc.)

3.  Yaoi (M x M) - This is M x M action in manga form (some of the covers are explicit so I have to hide them so I won't be embarrassed).

4.  Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series.
