  8. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love…and the followers
  9. If your new to the Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can come and see your blog.
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View 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! 


When did you start Blogging?
I started about 3 months ago actually.
What is your favorite part of blogging?
I love being able to discuss books with other book lovers like me. No one in my home life likes to read like I do. Except my daughter, but now she reads less since she got older and has a boyfriend. (she is 19, so too cool to talk books with mom now) also the new discoveries I have found from my fellow bloggers.
What is your favorite book(s)?
That list would be very long, so I will just mention my top ones, lol.
All Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments Books, and Infernal Devices.
Jeannie Frost’s Night Huntress Series
And a few new books I really love are: Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Covenant series, and her Lux series.
The list could go on, but by looking around my blog you can see what I like for sure.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Mainly some of the new friends I have met, and really appreciate the books I get to review, as my money situation in not good, so buying books was hard for me, I had to save what little I would get to buy books, and trade off what I did have, for new ones. I love that I can get a book for a review, granted many are ones I may not ever have discovered if I was not asked to review, but have found some books I really liked and enjoyed, and am eager for the sequels, so I think that overall is one thing I really like, is the new discoveries.



Q. Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?
well, this is a hard one, as I can't seem to remember any at all that I liked, seriously, I don't. Sorry to disappoint, but I did NOT like any Shakespeare and old stuff like that, I really do not like any old books, can't seem to understand their way of talking, and hate poems. So, I do not have an answer on this one. UPDATE: I seen someone post Where the Red Fern Grows, and remember, it was also a required book, and I LOVED it, and it made me cry.

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) 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 at host post 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! 
Captcha:
If you have CAPTCHA word verification enabled on your blog, please take it off. It makes it much more difficult for readers to comment. Please look at Alisons CAPTCHA eradication Post to learn how to get rid of it.

    Sorry to hear that you don't like Shakespear or anything like that. Understandable! I didn't read his works in school otherwise, I probably wouldn't have liked it if it was required.

  27. Reading the classics may be more difficult than reading books in modern day lingo, but it makes you think and stretches your brain! Don't pass up on the oldies just because they are more difficult, some of them are SO worth it!

  34. I know what you mean! I hate that I have to concentrate on Shakespeare so much - it spoils some of the fun! Then again, I only read Much Ado About Nothing and really liked it (once I understood the story)

    There was a lot of required reading that I didn't like either. I almost failed a couple of my English classes because I couldn't read them. It took me a while to think of one that I did like.
