Feature and Follow Friday #6 - Featured! and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It is a way for book bloggers to gain followers and make new friends. To join, all you have to do is answer the weekly question, and then follow as many blogs (that are also participating in F&F) as you can! You follow them, they follow you.

I prefer GFC and bloglovin' follows. If you've just followed me, let me know below s
o I can follow you back.

This week's question: Hard print (real thing) or Kindle/Nook, which is your favorite? - Suggested by The Realm of Books

Hard print, of course! For me, the reading experience won't be complete if you can't sniff the book and flip its pages. There's just something about holding the actual thing that makes me feel at home.

I'm featured! Yay! 
Thank you Alison Can Read and Parajunkee for choosing me to be this week's feature. I had so much fun answering the questions. Click on read more to view my answers! They will also be on Parajunkee's site.

When did you start blogging? 
I started blogging two years ago on my main blog. My book reviews were also there, but last year, I decided to separate my book reviews from my personal blog. So this blog is still pretty new!

What is your favorite part of book blogging? 
 I love being able to talk about my opinion about a certain book. It's not something you can discuss thoroughly in real life, unless you're talking to your Literature professor or something. I enjoy reading through other people's reviews. Sometimes reading can be a lonely hobby, but with book blogging, I can then talk to wonderful people about the great things I've read.

What type of books do you mainly blog about? 
Since I'm still in the YA range, I pick YA books, mostly Romance and Dystopian. I also read Chick Lit, but nothing beats YA.

What is your favorite book(s)? 
I DON'T WANT TO CHOOSE! But really, my favorite book changes ALL THE TIME. Right now it's Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson because I am a sucker for twisted tales.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Not gonna lie, getting to read ARCs is awesome, so that's definitely one of the great things that have happened. But besides that, I get really happy when someone comments on my review. It's like, "Wow, he/she read this too and he/she feels the same way!" Also, making new friends because of book blogging is a treasure, and I'm grateful we can bond through reading.


  1. It is so hard to pick one favorite book. I always have to go with either what I am most currently excited about, or something that I can go back and re-read over and over. Congratulations on being the featured blog this week, I'm a new Bloglovin follower.

    That's my favorite part of blogging too! It's always so much more fun to rave or rant about a book with someone else. ;)
