Feature and Follow Friday #1






Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.



Q. I wanted to be a book blogger because it combines the two things I love the most -- books and writing! I also love writing book reviews and sharing my thoughts on them. If I love a book, I want the WHOLE world to know about it! My friend was the one who started book blogging and she would send me her links every time she posted. She was like "It's summer and we're bored. Might as well do something productive!". I basically learned everything I know about writing book reviews from reading hers!

The free books are also a plus ;)

    1. When I tried to go on your blog to subscribe, it said "You do not have permission to view this blog. It may contain content that is suitable only for adults." Maybe you should check your settings just in case, so other people can follow back :)

      Or it might just be my computer. Idk.

  15. LOL it's summer and we're bored... Story of my freaking life!!! Sad but true. When I read a really good book I'm the exact opposite of you, I don't want anyone to know about it because I'm a selfish bugger and want the joy all to myself... I still blog about it though so ... I make no sense lol! Great answer! New follower!

  18. Thanks for stopping by - new follower (GFC & Linky).

    I originally started my blog with the intention of posting some photography and writing, but never quite seemed to do much of either. It was moving into book reviews finally got me past the procrastination hump. :)

  31. I so wish I'd found out about blogging like 5 years ago, while I was still in college getting my BA. Boy did I waste a lot of time looking for books to read. Now I can't seem to read fast enough to read all the books in my TBR list! Haha! I love book blogging. New follower!
