Feature and Follow Friday - Merry Christmas!

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: 

What books did you give other people this holiday season? -Suggested by Alison Can Read 

This Week's Answer: 

I usually give books for the holidays, pretty much everyone I buy gifts for get books, but this year I didn't get as many as I usually do. For my best friend I bought The Young Elites, my brother likes non-fiction so I got him Dancing with Myself which is Billy Idol's autobiography. My mom likes mysteries so I got her The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. And for my brother-in-law I got 1776 by David McCullough and a book called The Little Book of Lettering because he is a graphic designer.

But that was all. It's usually so many more but it seemed to be a relatively book-free Christmas. I only got two books and one of them I already have. What about you? What books did you give this Christmas? Leave me a comment of 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.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Great Sparkle Season! Happy FF and HAPPY READING!


  1. I haven't read any of those! The Young Elites is on my list though! I hope everyone loves their gifts :) Old follower!

    Here's my F&F!

  2. OOh nice! Well, my family aren't the biggest of readers but I always gift my bestie some books and my niece always gets a book from me as my godmother gift to her!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  3. I don't get books for Christmas (what do you get the person that has a pile of ARCs they figure? haha) and I don't typically gift books because I don't trust my taste for other people unless they explicitly say they're looking for a specific type of book and I've read it before.

  4. I don't typically give books as Christmas gifts. Everyone's taste is just so different.
