How it Works:
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.
This Week's Question:
How have your reading habits changed in the past few years? Did you get interested in a new genre? Do you read more? Less? Why do you think you habits changed, if they did.
This Week's Answer:
My reading habits have definitely changed within the past year. The first change is that I read a lot more often and because I read more often I finish a lot more books. I think this is because when I moved to Pittsburgh I had to ride the bus to work instead of walking. That half hour commute gives me a lot more opportunity to read. The other major change is that I read a lot more Young Adult books. I have always tried to vary my reading between classics, YA, and adult novels but since getting seriously into blogging I started being more impressed with YA books. The final change in my reading habits is that I read a lot more new books. I feel like with book blogging you have to keep up on the trends a little bit. If you're not personally keeping up with the new books about to come out you are seeing reviews and recommendations from fellow bloggers about them. So far this year of the 24 books I have read a third of them were published in 2014. I think last year I only read three books that were published in 2013.
How about you? How have your reading habits changed? Leave me a comment. And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see then give me a follow and let me know so I can follow you back. I'm indifferent to your manner of following so pick your poison GFC, Bloglovin, or Twitter. Thanks for hopping by and of course HAPPY READING!
