Follow My Blog Friday #145



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 I’ll Tumble for YA 

When did you start blogging?

I’m a new blogger, I’ve only been blogging since February 2013.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I like the social part. I’ve been following blogs and going to other blogs for years, now I feel much more connected to the blogging community.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

For the blog I stick exculsively to YA. In life I read YA, New Adult, and sometimes adult.

What is your favorite book(s)?

I have so many favorites the list would be to long to list them here. My absolute favorite author is Sarah Dessen, and in general I tend to favor contemporary romances.

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

I think the best thing has been when I’ve had some authors look and comment on my reviews.

Our Feature - Beauty but a Funny Girl
 





1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging in October 2012, so I still consider myself somewhat of a baby blogger.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I love finding new books. I know there are books that I have read/plan to read that I would not have found out about had it not been for blogging. I don't mean just indy books, but ones with smaller publishers that occasionally slip under the radar. At the same time, there are books where by blurb alone I would pass on, but when I see so many fellow bloggers rave about it, I know I have to give it a chance. Blogging has definitely expanded by TBR list, which is a double edged sword really.

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

I mainly focus on YA books that deal with fantasy/paranormal. That's definitely my favorite genre, but at the same time I read historical fiction, realistic fiction, new adult, and adult books. I've got to mix it up every now and then, but I always go back to the favorites.

4. What is your favorite book(s)?

My all time favorite book is Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. However, you can't go wrong with a Sherrilyn Kenyon book, especially if it's from her Dark-Hunter or The League series.

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

This is probably a really cheesy and cliche answer, but I've made a lot of blogging friends though doing this. Bloggers whose reviews and opinions I've come to trust when it comes to both books and blogging. Also, I've learned a lot about myself when it comes to book preferences and review writing.

Q: Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song and the book?

U R The Best Thing by D Ream and it reminds me of "Lover at Last" (perfect for Qhuinn and Blay).
