Follow My Blog Friday #174

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

This weeks Question:

Bookselling Time: Go to your biggest bookcases. Go to the second shelf from the top and pick out the sixth book from the left. Hardsell that book to us – even if you haven’t read it or if you hated it. (if you don’t have bookcases, don’t have six books on one shelf, etc, pick a book at random)



My book is a SIGNED copy of Mark Henry’s Happy Hour of the Damned. Which I actually have not read yet. BUT THAT IS OKAY! Because Mark Henry is the funniest author on the planet. I mean, in the synopsis it is described as Henry’s rollicking debut novel. If you can describe a novel as rollicking – what more can you ask for? Not to mention – they use words like paranormal romp. Paranormal romp? Good lawd, sign me up. I’ve been saying for ages I need to read these damn books, in fact I made myself by a shit-ton stack from Mark (okay it was 2 books – but it was more then the other authors I bought from – which was 1 – that is 100% more or is that 200% more?) because I knew I had to read them. But then he signed them and so I can’t read them. Cause I might bend the spine. READ THE BOOK.

Our Feature - Head in the Clouds

1. When did you start blogging?

September 2013 - Not that long ago!!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Meeting new people and finding out about new authors and books to read!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I mostly focus on YA books but like to throw in a few New Adult books. My favorite YA genres are leaning towards Dystopians right now.

4. What are your favorite books?

My all time favorite book, which I haven't read in YEARS, is The Island of The Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell. It was the first book that I fell in love with, it sparked my love of reading.

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

Q: Bookselling Time: Go to your biggest bookcases. Go to the second shelf from the top and pick out the sixth book from the left. Handsell that book to us - even if you haven’t read it or if you hated it. (if you don’t have bookcases, done have six books on one shelf, etc, pick a book at random)

Or if you answered that question last week (my fault for the confusion), answer this one: Tell us at least one new or unusual thing you’ve done in 2013.

Counting two shelves down and six books over and you get Crown of Midnight by Sarah Maas.

It's the follow-up to Throne of Glass. I haven't read it yet and I'm kicking myself, because it's gotten great reviews and I really liked the first book in the series.

Why should you read it? Strong female characters are fairly ubiquitous these days. But I feel like you mostly see them in dystopian novels. Think Hunger Games or Divergent. I don't like dystopian all that much. I am, however, a big fantasy fan. Crown of Midnight is a fantasy novel featuring a very strong female lead. It has a great mythical world, political intrigue, and some good romance. But mostly it has a great character and a great story.


My book is "Dance With The Devil" by Sherrilyn Kenyon. This is about Zarek of Moesia a tortured bad boy with a tragic past.

Zarek is my favorite Dark Hunter and his book is one of my favorites. Zarek is an example of dark and tortured hero with a good heart and honor. He blames himself for the wrong doings that have happened to others even though he doesn't cause them. He has been betrayed by his family and everyone that he trusts. He doesn't think he is worthy of love and he even helps people who don't trust him.

Zarek is introduced in Talon's book Night Pleasures and he's also a recurring character.
