Feature and Follow Friday #29

A weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee's View

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 visit the blogs of our illustrious hosts and leave your name on the post using using the linky tools, 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. 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: 

Armchair Travel. Tell us about your favorite book in a setting you'd like to visit (a real place for this question)

This Week's Answer: 

Picking an answer to this question in and of itself is a big question. The place that I have wanted to visit for a long time is Russia. I'm fascinated by their history and architecture.

So the two books that come to mind when I think of Russia are Sekret by Lindsay Smith and Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick (aka Jackson Pearce). Sekret has an incredible plot and the very cool setting of Soviet Russia in the 1960's. Tsarina however makes up for it's lackluster plot with luscious descriptions of Russia during the downfall of the Tsarist regime. Also this really makes me remember I need to read the Russian masters

How about you? What's your favorite book about a place you want to visit? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.

 And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see give me a follow and leave me a comment so I can follow back. I am indifferent to the manner in which you follow so pick your poison: GFC, Bloglovin, or Twitter. Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!

  5. I didn't think about Russia, but it would definitely be very cool to visit - it's so culturally diverse and has such an amazing history. Have you read The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo?
