Feature & Follow Friday 1/23/15

Welcome to the Feature & Follow

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?

The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. Make your own #FF post, sign up in the Linky, and then visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments of their #FF post for that week. 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 the Feature. Each week Parajunkee & Alison Can Read will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas.

Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow the Features (found on Parajunkee & Alison Can Read’s posts) and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy.

To follow Books That Hook, you can use any of the social media icons at the top of the screen, or sign up to receive new posts in your email inbox. Don’t worry, you won’t get flooded with emails. We usually only post once or twice a day, if that often.

Please tell us in the comments how you followed and a link to your own #FF so we can follow you back.

This weeks Question:

Do you post your reviews anywhere besides your blog? Where else do you post reviews? – Suggested by A Great Read.

I’m dedicated to putting my reviews on GoodReads (or at least a link to my review), but not good about Amazon. I had a bad experience on Amazon. I was honest about how bad a book sucked, then got a few ‘not helpful’ ratings that brought my percentage way down. I think they were probably from people affiliated with the book, who didn’t like me stating the truth about it. So, I don’t plan to review on Amazon anymore unless I really loved the book.

I try to remember to link to my reviews on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, but I forget sometimes.

The only other time I put my reviews up somewhere other than my blog is when I have received the book from a website that requires that I post my review. Examples: Netgalley, Edelweiss, Library Thing, Blogging For Books, etc.

Some of my reviews might end up on our public library’s website if they are chosen during the reading program I participate in during the winter.

Next Week’s Question:

Hard print (real thing) or Kindle/Nook, which is your favorite?
