Feature and Follow #5

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. 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.

Thank you to both Parajunkee and Alison Can Read for featuring me! 

Interview Questions:
1. When did you start blogging?
January 2013. I am a newbie though I have been writing reviews on goodreads for a year now.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Meeting new people. As cliche as that sounds, I love people! Unfortunately, nobody in my life is as much of a book nerd as I am. If I can't find someone to confess my book obsessions to, I'll explode. I think the whole book blog community is a great way for authors,publishers, and readers to get together and share their interest. 

3.What type of books do you mainly blog about?
Mostly YA fantasy, paranormal, and dystopian fiction. I also like adult urban fantasy,paranormal romance, and New Adult romances!

4. What is your favorite book(s)?
Hard question. I really hate choosing favorites.My current favorites are Moira Young's Dustland series, Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, Susan Ee's Angelfall, and Ann Aguirre's Razorland series

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
You mean besides being featured? Everything! It's hard to say because I am still so new. This answer goes back to question two. I have met some lovely people around here that write very entertaining reviews. Everyone I have met so far is very sweet. I am very excited to make new memories with other bloggers.

Q: We always talk about books that WE want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?

My close friend ,Lena, loves everything horror. She dragged me to see Mama with her a few weeks ago, let me tell you it was the worst experience ever.  So for her birthday, I gave her Stephen King's The Shining, It, and Carrie. I don't do scary (probably because I have an overactive imagination) but for some crazy reason I love Stephen King!

Leave a link to your FF, so I can check it out. Please let me know if you are a new follower, so I can follow you back. Happy Friday to all!

  2. Congrats on the feature!!! I'm not much of one to go see a scary movie, but I do love horror books and Stephen King is one of my favorite all time authors and the first horror author I could read without nightmares (go figure as he has some scare stuff). Excellent choices! New GFC follower.

  3. Congratulations on being the feature!!! I also love paranormal romance (Or any romance for that matter!) :) Stephen King is good, I just don't read him too often, I have to be in the mood for his books. Hope you have a great weekend.

  13. Congrats on being featured! I've been debating if I want to see Mama or wait it out. I can do scary at my own house, but not in a movie theater. Great choices regarding what you gave her re: Stephen King.

  22. Welcome to the world of book blogging! I used to love horror movies but when I got pregnant with my first son it would make me physically ill to watch and I've stayed away ever since. I don't read much horror, either. Probably because my mind makes it so much worse than a movie would be! lol

    Anyway, congrats on the feature this week! I'm your newest follower via GFC.

    I have a hate/love affair with horror stuff. On the one hand I love seeing and reading horror movies/shows/books but then I keep seeing weird things in the dark. I know there's nothing and yet... :P

    I don't do scary things either. My friends took me to a zombie movie last week and I was terrified the entire time.

  28. Congrats on being a featured blog this week - and for joining the book blogging community!!! I am still "fairly new" too, becoming a book blogger "officially" October of 2012. And I absolutely love it!

    I don't do scary - like those you mentioned (because I do love a good Zombie book or flick). NOPE! That's why I was afraid of the dark when I was younger. Over active imagination. I'll take my love stories any day over being scared out of my mind!

    I love horror, but I'm not a huge Stephen King fan like the rest of my family. Still, he does write some good stuff.
    I haven't seen Mama, yet.

  30. Congrats on being the featured blog this week :D Nobody in my 'real' life is as much of a book nerd as I am either so book blogging really helped me connect with other like minded people!! Oh and the Smoke & Bone books are among my favorite reads of all time as well ♥ I can't wait for book 3!!

    Have a great week end! Old follower :)

  33. Hi! Congrats on being featured! I'm an old follower. I definitely don't do horror either. So not my thing! I wouldn't have been able to go see the movie, even if it was her birthday! I would have to say "Sorry! You're on your own! I won't sleep for MONTHS if I see this!" I've tried to read a Stephen King novel but I stopped halfway through because I started having nightmares.. That book was Bag of Bones. I guess I'm just a wimp! hahaha

  49. Congratulations on being the featured blogger that's awesome!
    My hubby just saw Mama and told me I can't see it because of my overactive imagination. However I love zombie horror don't know why.
    That's great you share reading with your friend. Most of my friends aren't into books right now.
    Thanks for sharing!

  50. Your blog looks quite impressive for a newbie! It took me over a year before I really fell into the groove of book blogging, so I'm impressed. Plus anyone that appreciates Laini Taylor and Stephen King has to have good taste in books! New follower, looking forward to your future reviews!
