Follow My Blog Friday #183

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 this week: Tash Brilliant Book Blog

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging nearly 2 years ago. I’m coming up to my 2 year blog birthday. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for so long but I’ve loved every minute of it!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favourite part of blogging is talking to like minded people about books; so many people don’t read any more so it’s great that I can talk to people who share my love of books, reading and blogging.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I mainly blog about teen books and the odd YA.

What is your favorite book(s)?

I have so many, my ultimate favourite books are The Fault in our Stars, The Hunger Games and Touch of Power.

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

The best thing that has happened to me through blogging is the opportunities its given me. I’m only 14 but blogging has inspired me to start my career now, I’ve interviewed authors, started writing for newspapers and discovering some great new books.

Our Feature - Gizzimomo's Bookshelf

1. When did you start blogging?

Well I've been blogging for a while as I have a craft blog called Gizzimomo's Stitchy Place where I showcase my cross stitching and crafts and that has been up and running since September 2010. It's not your typical granny stitching but big complicated pieces, often featuring fantasy topics and are so much fun to do, sometimes you might even find me stitching a character/s from books and movies, as I have charts for characters from Lord Of The Rings, Game Of Thrones and Twilight!

The book blogging thing is pretty new, I only started the blog in December of last year but I had been thinking about doing it for a long time as my other passion besides needlework is books, I love them!

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

So far my favourite thing about book blogging is just having a medium to get all those things that books bring to you out into the open. I'm the only reader in my house so I don't having anyone real to talk to about what I think of books so the blog allows me to voice my thoughts and opinions.

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

I've been making a point this year of trying to widen my reading horizons so the blog is about all kinds of genres but my favourite genres will always be fantasy, paranormal, horror and historical fiction. I will never just focus one type of book as I simply just don't read one type of book so with my blog you'll get all sorts of things. This year so far we've had YA, crime, humour, horror, mystery and historical. it makes for a good mix!

4. What are your favorite books?

This is the most difficult question in the world for me as I've been reading since I first learnt to read and I'm now 38 so I have literally decades of books behind me and choosing just one book, or even just one series of books, is nigh on impossible. There are many books that I make a point of re-reading... often and the foremost of those is The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings which I consistently read every couple of year, just because I love the story and with the movies coming out it's rude not to brush up on the story before seeing the film isn't it?

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

As I said book blogging is still very new to me so there hasn't been a lot of time for the good things to occur but since I started the book blog I have developed good relations with two fabulous publishers and I think I'm starting to make new friends now within the blogging community too. I think the best thing so far has to just be having the outlet to talk books to people who want to listen, that's pretty cool!

Question of the Week: Change the Plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or a plot thread? Go ahead and do it ... change it.

I would change the plot thread of "Narcissus in Chains" by Laurell K. Hamilton.  I would get rid of the Ardeur, Micah and bring back the Triumvirate of Anita, Jean-Claude and Richard.
