Follow My Blog Friday #202

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 Review 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!

When did you start blogging?
March 2011. Just when I was moving from my writing phase, I just love books so much, and blogging became the next!

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Talking about books! I’m totally obsessed with books, they are my life, and yeah, I am crazy, but, books, they’re just so loveable and obsess-over able!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

YA. A bit of romance, and mystery, from my favourite authors. But YA is my main thing, because it’s just so diverse and different and unique!

What is your favorite book(s)?

Top of my head? Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, Acheron/Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Heart of the Dragon by Gena Showalter. All 3 are favourite authors, and they’re that way because of these books!

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

I’ll have to go with the selfish answer-ARC’s. I just love to read, and getting books before they come out, to devour them earlier, to not have to wait in torture as long, is just the best!
Our Feature - Please Feed the Bookworm

1. When did you start blogging?

I started using goodreads in May of 2013 and was amazed at the amount of info I could find on books yet, there was a lot of negative silly reviews such as *stupid book, don't read* I wanted to put informative reviews for someone who came across the same problem I did so on February 1st 2014 I started Please Feed the Bookworm.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My hands down favorite part of course is the reading but also finding a place, a niche, where i felt at home with like minded individuals. I changed my life drastically after having my 3 year old so I was flailing around for a bit before the bookish community welcomed me with open arms. Ive never felt more at home.

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

Young Adult but lately I've been realizing I tend to lean way towards fantasy and anything supernatural!! Give me a good princess and dragon story anyday!

4. What are your favorite books?

This is probably the hardest ? to answer since it really depends on my mood at the time. My favorite classic is Lewis Carroll's, Alice in Wonderland. While my favorite series are Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas, The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, and A Song of Ice & Fire series (game of thrones) by George R.R. Martin. I could read these books forever and never get bored!

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

The best thing that has happened to me because of book blogging is that I finally found a hobby that allows me to use my imagination the way I've always dreamed I could by living vicariously through books. Also how can you beat the people!! I met so many cool bloggers and I can't wait to meet more in the future.

Question of the Week: Tell us about a book character you’d trade places with. 

Eve Dallas - She has a very dangerous job but coming home to Roarke (do I have to say anymore!)

Astrid - She has a very demanding job of judging people everyday but she has Zarek to come home too (I would practice my fighting skills with him)!

Bella - She has Nalla and Zsadist (I would play hide and seek everynight!)
