Feature and Follow Friday #44

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: 

Book Looks - Your favorite fashions from books you have read - Suggested by Go Book Yourself

This Week's Answer: 

One of the things that I love about Historical Fiction and Period Pieces ares the elaborate ball gowns featured in the story. No don't get me wrong, I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, and corsets sound like pure torture but I was raised on Disney so the idea of an elaborate ballgown sounds fabulous to me. And I know it's cliche but I am a sucker for a "girl in a pretty dress" book cover. Some of my favorites include The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen (I mean those bustles are OUT. OF CONTROL!) and the Something Strange and Deadly series by Susan Dennard.

What about you? What are some of your favorite book related fashions? Do you like the girl in a pretty dress covers or do you  think they are played out? 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, and/or Twitter. I'm also on YouTube now so you can check me out HERE and subscribe! I've been posting videos every Friday!

Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!


  1. The Luxe series is my favorite. I love pretty dresses! Recently, I really love the cover of Jewel. Just visiting. I didn't do a post this week....

  2. I've yet to read the Luxe series! But goodness me! What I would do to wear one of those dresses :) New follower!

  3. Oh nice! I chose Strange Ever After too in a sense! Feel like I kind of read the question wrong but still like my answer because I like the "inspired" fashions!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!
