Follow My Blog Friday #172

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 Stalked! Twin Spin

When did you start blogging?

We actually started blogging back in 2011 with the encouragement of my (Kristine) 12 yr old daughter who blogs. Shortly after, Terri (the other half of Twin Spin) was diagnosed with a rare muscle disease and had a rough year getting it under control and we had to let it slide. This year has been a very positive year with her health so we started regularly blogging again back in September.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

We love it all! Being able to talk about our favorite passtime to other like minded people is great. We love connecting with so many wonderful people.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

We try to cover as many different genres as we can so that we have a wide range for everyone. Lately I have been blogging a lot of New Adult and Terri has been blogging a lot of Historical Fiction but we are not limited to that.

What is your favorite book(s)?

This is a tough one to answer because we have read so many great books. Some authors that we really enjoy and agree on are Kate Morton, Sarah Jio and Diane Chamberlain. Terri’s favorite book that she has read in recent years is The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. I can’t pick just one although I did adore The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

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

I think that the best thing would be connecting with so many great authors that we would never have heard of if it wasn’t for blogging. We’ve had the opportunity to read a lot of great titles from up and coming authors that we would not have found otherwise. Connecting with so many other bloggers and talking books is an added bonus as well!

Our Feature - Highway-YA

1. When did you start blogging?

I started at the end of June so it is going on 6 months.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

It's a lot that I love but the main one is that I can connect with other bloggers and just talk books. I get to see what others are reading, get recommendations for books and participate in different events.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I'm a Young Adult librarian so the majority are Y.A. A couple of months ago I found out about New Adult Fiction so I blog about those also.

4. What are your favorite books?

The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare, Fallen Series by Lauren Kate, Hush Hush Series by Becca Fitzpatrick, and the Lux Series by Jennifer Armentrout.

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

I have met so many different Authors and it makes me feel really good when I see that an author wants me to review a book for them. I literally check my email in the mornings just to see about new notifications and review request.

Q: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving Day food? If you’re not American or Canadian, what is your favorite holiday food?

My favorite Thanksgiving Day foods are the delicious cranberry sauce and stuffing together (yummy can't have enough of this).  I also really enjoy any pies (except for pumpkin) and a chocolate cake (my family raves about my cake).

I love cranberry sauce and stuffing too. I could just eat those and be happy.
