Feature & Follow #29

Welcome to the Feature & Follow

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & 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, Parajunkee 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 > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list! How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

And now the Random Question of this week:

What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

LOL. How many times doe someone get to answer this question? I'll answer because I'm sure there may be a few followers out there who haven't read my post about my favorite author...Laura Kaye. Short back-history: Before she started writing her own stories she was writing Twilight FanFic (Of which I was a fan). Later, she announced that she was starting a story of her own and was posting on a writing website (TextNovel). About 7 chapters in she said it was being pulled and picked up by a publisher. *le sigh* So I patiently waited another full year before she delivered Lucien Demarco to the eagerly awaiting world. It was that story that got me wanting to share my thoughts on PNR and other genres I have dived into with the book blogging community.


  1. that's such a cool story! mine is pretty boring lol. I haven't read any Laura Kaye's works yet though, but I've heard great things about it!
