Feature & Follow #30

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:

Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?

Currently, no with my blog tours scheduled and my vacation this month. After late August, early September I plan on reading what's either in my small physical collection or what I have on my kindle (of which 90% I have not read!). I'm going to take a 4 month hiatus from book tours mostly so I can read what I own and want for a bit as I've had some books which really didn't suit my taste this last couple months. I may take on a tour, bot only for authors I have previously read, are part of a series I've started or are full length books.


  1. Ahh. I hear ya.. I think it's a good thing I tend to join tours that have books in genres that I like.. but I would love to read a book I bought and have been waiting to read >.<

  3. Hopping through. It's funny how suddenly you have things you "have" to read. I need to catch up to some of my "have to" reads.

  4. love ur answer. I'm a big mood reader, so it's no wonder I'm a bit wary of blog tours. I just can't deal with having to read something by a deadline especially if I'm not feeling it! Good luck with ur blog hiatus!
