Feature and Follow Friday

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read

The wonderful Alison and Parajunkee picked me this week to be one of the featured blogs on Follow Friday! 

Of course, this fills me with joy - so let's get the party started! 

My Questions and Answers! 

When did you start blogging? 
I actually started blogging back in 2009 which seems crazy now! I took a break while beginning college but am now back to the blogosphere I’d missed so much. It doesn’t feel like I started blogging seven years ago, but time flies when you’re having fun. 

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I really enjoy being able to keep up with the book-ish world. I love knowing what books are coming out, and being able to talk about something that I love. I love the fact that I need a planner JUST for my blog schedule and reading schedule. I feel very thankful to receive emails from real publicists who care what I say. It is insane and I am so, so grateful. 

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I love all things YA, particularly fantasy, contemporary, and historical fiction. I also enjoy books with crossover appeal - especially if they involve epic adventures or furry four legged friends. 

What are your favorite books?
The Truth About Forever, The Study Series, The Sin Eater’s Daughter, 17 First Kisses, Going Too Far, Harry Potter, Snow Like Ashes, Lord of the Rings, etc… I’m an English major so I also have a soft spot for classics and poetry. I often cry reading Tennyson in my spare time. 

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
The relationship that I have built with publishers and other bloggers has been fantastic, but there are many things I look back on and can’t believe have happened.  I have had breakfast with best selling authors, and have met more authors than I ever thought I would at festivals and signings, etc..  I met Stephanie Meyer before there was a movie! 

Honestly though, book blogging is all about the community and all about the people you meet physically and virtually. When you write a review and have the author contact you with thanks it feels great, and when you’re able to help other bloggers it is a wonderful feeling. Blogging is just the best. 

This Week's Question... 

Share a random quote from a book you are currently reading!
I am reading On Writing by Stephen King (again!) for a writing class, and a wonderful quote from that book is... 

"The road to Hell is paved with adverbs." 

Which is just true. 

Don't forget to add your link, and let me know if you're hopping by!

CONGRATS on being one of the featured blogs this week!! WOOT, WOOT!!

I enjoyed reading your interview, and think you're SO lucky to have met Stephenie Meyer!! I met her myself in 2007, at a book signing. But I didn't have any time to really talk to her, as the place was SO crowded with fans! I had to wait an hour and a half to get my copy of "Ecllipse" signed. So she basically signed my book, and that was that. And I wouldn't part with that book for the world!! I hope you got to talk to her, at least for a few minutes, when you met her.

As for the quote, it's a GREAT one for writers! I'm not a Stephen King fan, but, in the case of this quote, I think he really nailed it! And I see he also has a sense of humor.

I'm now following your blog with GFC and Bloglovin'.

Here's my own FF post:
