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:
Recommend some of your favorite back-list books - books that are at lease a few years old (I'm thinking 5-10 years old rather than classics)
This Week's Answer:
This is a book about how the Greek Gods are still up to their old tricks in the modern era. They are meddling in our lives, having extra-marital affairs, and fighting amongst themselves. Banville's prose is hauntingly poetic and this book is beautiful. Check it out if you like Greek Mythology or stories that have a messed up family dynamic.
I've mentioned my love of this book before in a post (here) but I've noticed a lot of bloggers just warming up to Historical Fiction. This series is like Gilded Age Gossip Girl. There's lots of back-stabbing, romance, and strong female characters trying to be who they want to be in a society that wants to relegate them to a certain role. If you liked A Mad, Wicked Folly read The Luxe.
This is a Historical Mystery and I read it at a time when I was getting bored with the genre. I picked it back up recently and loved it. The mystery is great, there's tons of action, and I love the characters. I know the TV show Sherlock is really popular so if you are looking for a little fix when it's off the air check out The Sherlockian.
Have you read any of theses books? What are your back-list books? Leave me a comment!
This is a blog hop so take a look around if you like what you see feel free to subscribe and leave me a comment so I can follow you back. I'm indifferent to the method you follow so pick your poison... GFC, Bloglovin, or Twitter. Thanks for hopping by and HAPPY READING!!!
