Follow My Blog Friday #144

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.

To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

1.  (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee and Alison Can Read}

2.  (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers

3.  Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.

4.  Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.

5.  If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed

6.  Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”

7.  If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love … and the followers

8.  If you’re new to the follow Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

The Friday Follow Feature are ...

Our Feature is blogger Bookworms’ Avenue

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging back 2009. My blog wasn’t a book blog yet it was more of a “my hobbies” blog. But after couple of months blogging I sort of got tired and very busy at school so I decided to end it. After several years I found out about book blogs, which was on May 2012, and made one of my own.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Meeting new bookish friends and authors!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I mainly blog about books under YA genre but sometimes NA.

What is your favorite book(s)?

Harry Potter series! Nothing beats HP

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

So far the best thing that happened to me is getting connected to famous authors

Our Feature - Words Fueled by Love

1. When did you start blogging?

After watching my sister-n-law blog for a year I decided to give it a try myself. I started my blog October 1, 2012 and have been going strong ever since!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

To narrow this down to one favorite thing is really hard so I'll keep it to my top 2 favorite things of book blogging. One - the opportunities having a book blog has opened up to me (e.g. book blog tours, cover reveals, giveaway hops, ARC reviews from authors and publishers, etc...). None of that would have been possible had I not had a book blog. Two - all of the fantastic people I have met through book blogging. Book blogging just wouldn't be any fun without the interaction between other book blog friends.

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

I mainly review young adult and new adult books in many sub-genres (paranormal, contemporary, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, etc...)

4. What is your favorite book(s)?

Another tough question to narrow down to just a few. Here are some of my current fave series: Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Cambion series by Shannon Dermott, Too Far series by Abbi Glines, Slammed series by Colleen Hoover, Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire. Now for some long time favorites: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan.

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

I guess the best thing for me personally since starting my blog, has been rekindling the avenue to express myself through writing. I don't think I'm an eloquent writer by any means and I don't write lengthy reviews typically or use big words, but I enjoy writing my thoughts down and I really enjoy hearing from other readers and bloggers about the books I review and the various posts I participate in.

Q: If you could hang out with any author (living) who would it be and what would you want to do?

I would love to hang out with J.R. Ward at a nightclub or a nice restaurant.  I would ask her questions about Qhuay and find out more info. about Saxton?
