Feature & Follow Friday # 227

I am participating in Feature & Follow Friday!  I am new to all of this so if I explain it awkwardly, please forgive me.  This is like a blog tag!  I will try to follow as many of the blogs on the master list as I can and hope that some of them will follow me back!  This is hosted by Alison of Alison can read and Parajunkee Go to both of their sites and check them out!

Here is the explanation from Alison Can Read's blog:

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 ayou 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.

There is also a question of the week!

Question of the Week: Share a random quote from the book you are currently reading.  Suggested by Journey Through Fiction

From The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Tariq continued, the silver in his eyes flashing, "But understand this: no matter how many perfect young women you put in my path, there is only one Shahrzad"

If you start to follow me, please leave a comment below and say hello!  I will do my best to follow you back!  You can follow on Bloglovin, Google friends connect or on Networked blogs.

Happy blogging!
