Feature and Follow Friday #183

Hi there, I'm happy to be participating once more in Feature and Follow Friday!

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  8. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

Question of the Week: Resolutions: Put together your blogger resolution list for all of us to see!

1.  Read more "real" books!  I'm actually taking part in a challenge for this one, if you'd like to join the fun.  

2.  Request FEWER Netgalley books!  I think I was sucked into the whole Netgalley novelty, and now I have waaaaay too many books to review - it's taking me away from some other books I really want to read.

3.  Make my blog really pretty!  I might need some outside help for this.

Other than that, I just want to have fun and not get too hung up on stats and blog tours, etc.  I think if there's too much stress to review or post a certain amount, I'll probably freak out, and that's not what blogging should be about for me.  

Anyway, I would love it if you decide to follow me!  If you do, be sure to leave a comment and I'll follow you back!!!


  1. I need to slow down on requesting from Netgalley as well. I got sick last summer and got so behind on my reviews from there. I'm slowly getting caught up though. Following via bloglovin. Have a good weekend!

  3. I need to request less Netgalley books as well :) I have way too many to read now.

  5. I think I should add that netgalley resolution to my mind, I had too much books on my waiting list :'-) but they all look so tempting. and I thought your blog is already beautiful! love the colors! but if you want it to be more perhaps you could add your own header. Followed you via GFC and Bloglovin!

  7. I don't think your blog looks bad. Simple is good too. Netgalley is very tempting. I only look through it every now and then. It just stares at me though... like "read me now". LOL!

  8. I really need to get my Netgalley stuff under control as well. I go a little insane with requests and it doesn't end well. I hope you manage to get a good control of yours as well.

  9. I totally agree on the netgalley thing! I always request something and then forget i requested it till i get the mail of approval.
    Hope you get yours under control!

  10. I like your blog already. It's a simple kind of pretty! :) Thanks for following and commenting on my blog earlier! I'm following you back via gfc! :)
