Follow My Blog Friday #185

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:

My Midnight Fantasies

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging April, 2012 and it opened my eyes to a world I didn’t know existed. I wish I would have started earlier.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

I love talking about books, meeting fellow book lovers, and finding new books through bloggers. I love how we all share the same love of books and the book community is so friendly, communicating and recommending books.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I started blogging about YA, but now that I’ve done this for awhile I decided to branch out about six months ago and I’m also liking NA, Contemporary Romance. But I think my main focus now is anything with a good romance in it.

What is your favorite book(s)?

So many

The Mortal Instruments Series By Cassandra Clare
The Existence Series (YA), The Sea Breeze Series (NA) By Abbi Glines
The Lux Series By Jenny L. Armentrout (Anything by her.)
The Seaside Series By Rachel Van Dyken (Anything by her.)
The Runes Series By Ednah Walters (I’ve read her NA series as well & they’re awesome.)

And so many more.

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

Many things though recently I got to speak to one of my favorite authors and I was so excited. She was really awesome! She always takes the time to talk to her fans. I just love talking about books and putting the word out there about great new books.

Our Feature - Fathomless Reveries

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging on May 26, 2013. I remember I was so excited about putting up a book blog that I posted a book review right away on the same day. It was supposed to be This Is What Happy Looks Like, but my brain was crazily all over the place again (as usual) so the review ended up talking about The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight instead. (HAHA)

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

It's gotta be being able to publish new posts on my thoughts about the books I read. I've always had a hard time speaking up about all sorts of things, and having a book blog became an outlet for me to rant or go crazy about a book that I just read, and I just love it, especially when you hear someone going to try out a book because of your review. Awesome!

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

I mainly blog about YA/NA, contemporary romance and music-related stuff. I'm a sucker for those, but other genres like paranormal or dystopian might also appear at times. I'm not a big hater of them, it's just that I don't find a lot of books with that genre that I can come to love easily. (huhu)

4. What are your favorite books?

Oh, this one's hard. I sorta have a lot of favorite books, but I love books that involve family, and life in general, with a lot of lessons and stuffs. Or the books that are really very cute even though the plot lines are very simple.

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Not much has happened to me because of book blogging, but being able to talk to authors even if it was just a few exchanges of words here and there really felt awesome. I didn't even know that there was this chance to be able to talk to authors before I started book blogging. Oh, and when people just leave comments on posts. Those always make my day. Everything's really awesome and amazing. (yay)

Question of the Week: How have your reading habits changed in the past few years? Did you get interested in a new genre? Do you read more? Less? Why do you think your habits changed, if they did.

I've been reading more Y/A books while a few years ago I barely did.  I've also been reading more manga, manhwa and yaoi.

Hopping through. I've been trying to finish up Death Note. Then I need to find a new manga series.

Camille Flores said...

Aww, it's been ages since I've read a manga. What are some of the mangas you read? I think the last I've read was Skip Beat :)

Here's My FF :) New follower via Bloglovin :)
