Feature & Follow (19)


I haven't participated in Feature & Follow in a while, so I'm joining in once again. This is a fun way to find some new blogs and add followers. Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison from Alison Can Read. Be sure to follow them and the Featured blog and enjoy this week's Feature question.



Our Feature is Jelly of Jelly’s Insider

When did you start blogging?
January 2013. I am a newbie though I have been writing reviews on goodreads for a year now.
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Meeting new people. As cliche as that sounds, I love people! Unfortunately, nobody in my life is as much of a book nerd as I am. If I can’t find someone to confess my book obsessions to, I’ll explode. I think the whole book blog community is a great way for authors,publishers, and readers to get together and share their interest.
What type of books do you mainly blog about?
Mostly YA fantasy, paranormal, and dystopian fiction. I also like adult urban fantasy,paranormal romance, and New Adult romances!
What is your favorite book(s)?
Hard question. I really hate choosing favorites.My current favorites are Moira Young’s Dustland series, Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, Susan Ee’s Angelfall, and Ann Aguirre’s Razorland series.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
You mean besides being featured? Everything! It’s hard to say because I am still so new. This answer goes back to question two. I have met some lovely people around here that write very entertaining reviews. Everyone I have met so far is very sweet. I am very excited to make new memories with other bloggers.


This weeks Question:

We always talk about books that WE want. Let’s turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?

I am always giving my daughter books, but I don't think that really counts because that is my job as her mother. I try to only give books that I think people will really like because I hate the idea of a book just sitting on a shelf and not being read. Because of this, I am pretty selective about which books I give to friends and family. I did give a copy of The Headmaster's Wager to a friend who reads very widely because I thought she would like the historical aspect to the book, and it's just a really good book.

  2. I love giving away books to my friends and it gives me joy when they read and enjoy the books. I haven't head of The Headmaster's Wager, though.

  4. I don't have friends in my day to day life who enjoy reading (besides magazines) and because of that I make sure my baby girl has unrestricted access to new books. So yes ma'am your daughter totally counts :)
