Follow My Blog Friday #153



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!

Our Feature is Rotten Apple Reads

Rotten Apple Reads
When did you start blogging?

I started blogging back in November of 2011, I still feels like yesterday because I still have so much to learn!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favorite part about blogging is of course my followers! If it wasn’t for all of you I would not be blogging at all, it is your comments,thoughts and opinions that keep RARs going I would have never met my wonderful co-bloggers Antonia and Adriana either, they are the BEST!! Also having a book blog gives me a great excuse to buy/read MORE BOOKS!!!!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I would say RARs sticks to Young Adult alot more than the other genres out there only because I haven’t yet experience them yet but my co-bloggers have introduced me to lots of other non-Young Adult-ish books that I can’t wait to read this year

What is your favorite book(s)?

Vampire Academy/BloodLines
Elanor&Park(this one changed my life)
Covenant Series
The Mortal Instrument series
Let The Sky Fall
Blood Red Road
Crewel
Cinder
Beautiful Creatures

I could go on forever but if you haven’t read any of these I suggest you check them out!

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

I would say going to BEA was the best thing ever!!!!! I met so many people that actually knew my blog and followed!!! That just gives me chills every time and I love it.

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging last year in August but I really became a daily blogger with my blogging resolutions for 2013. It took me a few months to get to a true daily posting but now I'm going strong.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

It is so difficult to just pick one favorite part. I love connecting with the community especially those people who introduce me to new things by sending me to their "Stacking the Shelves" or "Top Ten Tuesdays". I love talking to people about books and since I'm mostly a romance reviewer, it is sometimes difficult to find people who read a lot in that genre. I love recommendations, tweets, and facebook messages so I can talk about what I love and get new ideas and books to read.

Secondarily, I love getting comments on my reviews on Goodreads because they often offer a new perspective on the book for me.

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

I review mostly romance novels. My main focus is Contemporary, Paranormal, Erotic, and the occasional YA. Romance is an intimate experience and I love the tangle of emotion that accompanies each page. Sometimes I cover a mystery or fantasy novel when it comes from an author I've followed for years OR an author that sounds interesting. I'm pretty open but I've found my love of romance shapes what I read.

4. What is your favorite book(s)?

I have so many favorites and it is just so hard to choose! I'll pick my top five real quick just because it is so hard to choose. I always love re-reading "I Capture the Castle" by Dodie Smith, "The Harry Potter Series" by J.K. Rowling, "The Witness" by Nora Roberts, "Bitten" by Kelley Armstrong, and "A Discovery of Witches" by Deborah Harkness. All of these are re-read constantly when I need to get out of a book funk.

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

I would love to say something super profound here but I have to be honest. My favorite moment happened a few weeks ago when I got an email from author Olivia Gates. She wrote one of my favorite romances and she commented on my review on Goodreads. It was just amazing to hear from an author whose book I bought in the store. It's unbelievable to make these connections with people I would never have the chance to speak to otherwise.
