Feature and Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where bloggers are given an opportunity to discover new blogs and gain new followers.

This Week’s Question:

Book character(s) you’d like to see with their own Twitter page

I actually don’t have a Twitter account, but I would consider getting one if say Richard Campbell Gansey III tweeted about his adventures trying to find Glendower. In fact, I would join if any of the characters from The Raven Cycle series joined Twitter: Ronan, Blue, Adam, Noah (could Noah join?), even the Gray Man.

Feature & Follow, #15: I’m Featured!

featuredblogger

Feature and Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where bloggers are given an opportunity to discover new blogs and gain new followers. This week I have the pleasure of being one of the featured bloggers. Yay! I’m super excited for this.

This Week’s Question:

Blogger pet peeves? (Like when I’ve drafted an entire post, ready to publish it, and I see somewhere I’ve left out a html code… When I didn’t even do my post in html)

Personally, I hate it when I make grammatical errors in reviews. I spend so much time writing the post, editing it to make sure it sounds somewhat eloquent, only to publish it and then realize some time later there’s a blaring grammatical error! I have to go back and fix it on my blog, then hop on over to Amazon and Goodreads to fix it there are well. The worst grammatical error I ever committed was only a few months ago when I was writing my review of Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass. I published it and everything was great…then I had a eureka moment (is there a term to describe a eureka moment that isn’t good?) when I realized I had spelled “Throne of Glass” as “Thrown of Glass.” I was so ashamed! I’m prone to make errors at night when I’m tired and my brain has decided it’s night-night time. It doesn’t help that most of my reviews get written during this time.

My Interview Answers:

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging last November, but I don’t think I really got the hang of it until earlier this year.
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
There are so many wonderful things that come from book blogging, but what always stands out to me is the camaraderie I see between book bloggers. There is something infinitely special and beautiful about seeing people from all over the world meeting on common ground over books. Despite how different we may be, the power of the written word transcends these differences and I feel blessed to be a part of it.
What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I’m a big YA reader, though I also enjoy some adult and middle school reads as well. More specifically, I’m all about fantasy. Give me magic, dragons, druids, Fae, swords fights, curses, kingdoms, or assassins and I’m good.
What is your favorite book?
This is single-handedly the hardest question for any bookworm, so I’m going to shamelessly name a bunch. Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, The Raven Boys, The Knife of Never Letting Go, Wildwood Dancing, To Kill a Mockingbird…and many, many more.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
My love and appreciation for books has multiplied tenfold. I feel like book blogging has opened a whole new world for me. And of course, there’s that moment I think we’ve all had when you realize, “These people get me.” Sure, people may call us weird or nerdy, but finding other people that understand that books are more than just words on a page, that they’re these capsules waiting for someone to open them and let loose the magic within, is the best part of blogging for me.

This Week’s Question:

Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you?

Very dark times indeed. One of the most wonderful things about blogging is your TBR list is never in a state of depletion; there are always more books to add thanks to other enthusiastic book bloggers who understand the importance of literature. Before I started blogging and even before blogging became so popular, I would simply go to the library or bookstore and browse for a few hours before deciding what to bring home.

This Week’s Question:

Are you also a writer and what genre or did you ever consider writing?

I love to write, but in recent years I’ve found myself reading more than writing. Writer’s block seems to be my intimate friend when it comes to putting down the stories circulating in my head. Since I’ve been blogging, I find I have less time to spend on my own writing. Truth be told, I think I’m better at editing and improving someone else’s writing.
