Feature and Follow Friday #1

Feature and Follow Friday

Hi, just posting this to tell you that I am now doing "Feature and Follow Friday" hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Leave a comment below to telling me you followed, and I'll follow you back via bloglovin

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.

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!

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 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!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. 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.

How To Become a Featured Blog?

We pick our featured blogs randomly each week from the blogs who participated the week before.

Please be sure to feature your e-mail address clearly on your blog. Either on the main blog, on a Contact page, or on an About Me page. If I can't find your email easily, I will choose a different blog to feature.

Question of the Week: Pick a book in your favorite genre that you’d recommend to a reluctant reader. I've broken this question down into three categories in order of what genre I think a reluctant reader would like; Science fiction/dystopian, paranormal romance, and contemporary.

Science fiction/dystopian~  Legend by Marie Lu because I was in a reading slump and this immediately took me out of it, and made me want to devour the sequels. It isn't formula dystopian, and equally appeals to both genders because of the narration by two people.

For paranormal romance~ The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting because I don't traditionally prefer to read this genre, but the concept was so different and interesting that a reluctant reader would be interested in within the first page.
Contemporary~ Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher because of the way it captivated me when I wasn't really into contemporary novels, and how the book didn't delve too deep into what Hannah was experiencing, which could possibly deter some reluctant readers.
