Feature & Follow (19)

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.

Q: What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can't deal with bad editing?

A: I know that saying, "Never judge a book by its cover"; but, if I see a book with a really cheesy or just plain crappy cover I won't even pick it up. I really need something eye-catching and relevant to the book; not just a sexy cover. Also the whole insta-love thing drives me crazy! I appreciate a more realistic relationship.


  1. OMG. I'm totally like that too! lol. And when there's an awesome cover, "Let's read this book!" LOL. Old follower~

  2. Good point. Cover is the first impression so if it's terrible, it's hard to get into the book. Old follower. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D

  3. I too like the realistic relationship than the instant love thing. Like what you also say about covers :)

  5. I can definitely appreciate a gorgeous book cover, but it's not a deal breaker for me :-)

  6. Oh I didn't think about the cover for this question. I'm always drawn to covers first. Great answer!

  7. I judge a book by it's cover as well, but if I get a free book or ARC I make sure to mention the cover work in my review. I read a book just yesterday in which the cover was terrible but the book was great!
    Happy Friday!
    Here's my FF.

  8. I always feel bad when I have to admit that I'm a cover-judger :p

  9. haha great answer, sad but true! If a book has a really corny cover I tend to pass it up as well :) Thanks for sharing, old follower via GFC but I just follower via NB as well! Here's my FFF

  10. The cover draws you into the book.

  11. Oh I so feel you on that one. I will turn away from crappy or cheap looking covers. it is a pet peeve for me. new follower through rss. my FF

  12. The cover is your first impression of a book. It makes sense to use it as your first screening process. :)
