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! 

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

My Answer: I found several book blogs when reading reviews for books I was looking to read. And decided to research book blogging, and decided it would be something that I would like. I love to do reviews, and the giveaways and all these other things are just fun for me. 

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! 
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.


  1. Hi Michelle.

    Thanks for stopping by and sorry about that non-twitter link. This is my first time using Rafflecopter. Maybe next time I'll get it right!

    1. its ok, I managed, lol, just thought I would let you know. :) Thanks for coming by

  2. I get asked all the time what do I get paid. I said nothing and they ask why do you do it then. Non book lovers would ask that.
