Follow My Blog Friday #222

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?

I started blogging around 6 years (maybe 7) ago in November.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?

My favorite part of blogging is meeting new bloggers. If have read things I wouldn’t have read on the recommendation of fellow bloggers.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?

I mainly blog about Y.A., N.A., romance, and street lit books. I can usually relate to the story and characters of these types of books.

What is your favorite book(s)?

LOL. The Harry Potter series. I was reluctant to read it at first. I was older and I was like many people who thought the books (book 1 and 2 were out) were for kids. After noticing how many adults were reading them I decided to give it a chance and been in love ever since!

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

Having authors reach out to me has been the best thing that has happen. Some want reviews which I appreciate being thought of but others we actually chit chat. I think that is pretty awesome to be able to fall in love with a book and talk to the author about it.

Our Feature - Haunted Bookshelf

1. When did you start blogging?

I have been blogging for about 5 years now Haunted Bookshelf is only about 2 months old. This blog is an offshoot of my main book review blog, Keeper Bookshelf. I didn't want to give up my main blog, but did want a more focused on Paranormal novels type blog, so Haunted Bookshelf was born.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Aside from constantly reading? :) That's an easy one, it's the people, the community. To be surrounded by other folks who share a love of books and talking about them constantly - that's a small piece of Heaven to me.

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

On Haunted Bookshelf it's all about the Paranormal, with some Fantasy tossed in. I read just about any type of novel, my interests are vast and diverse. But I've found that within the Paranormal universe I get to read all of my favorite genres as well. A Paranormal Romance novel can be set within a Contemporary Romance or Historical Romance background. So I get a bit of everything when I read Paranormals.

4. What are your favorite books?

Oh, I knew this would get asked - and I have no good answer. My favorite Paranormal is actually a series called Wings in the Night by Maggie Shayne. Full of vampires, it's been going strong since 1993 - so I have to pick that one. But, honestly, my favorite book is usually the one I'm reading right now which changes constantly.

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

The people behind the blogs that I meet. Oh, sure, it's a totally online relationship - but I have met some amazing people through our shared love of books. So, for me, it's all about the books and the people.

Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? What was it?

I guess you could call it a nightmare!  I would be dreaming that I was falling and I would wake up the time with my legs and arms jerking around!
