Feature and Follow Friday [#3]


Hey guys! We are so excited to be one of the featured blogs for this week’s feature and follow Friday!




Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee’s View

How does this work? The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) 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!



This week's question: Happy Mother's Day! What's your favorite character from fiction?

A. My favorite mom from fiction would honestly probably have to be Percy Jackson’s mom. She has been through so much, yet she was always kind, caring, and fun. She took time for Percy and was always been there. Her life was not easy at all, but she didn’t let it get her down. And come on, she makes blue food. She’s awesome.

We don't have a preference for how you follow us-GFC, Bloglovin, RSS, Twitter, whatever-just make sure to leave a comment so we can visit you back :)



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!

  8. Congrats on being featured! Following via GFC! I haven't read the Percy Jackson books, but based off your description she does sound like a great mom. Being there when needed and making any food (even if it's blue) are signs of a great parent in my book!

  51. I do love when Percy realizes that his mom kept her jerk husband around because is overt humanness masked Percy's identity. That is one smart mama!

  61. Greetings and salutations, fellow nerds! I am another new blogger, and a new GFC follower. How cool to be the Feature!

    I haven't read the Percy Jackson series, but the way you describe her, I'm convinced she must be great.

    I have several favorite fictional moms. Best overall is Molly Weasley of HP, with Lily Potter being a close second. Best mother in classic literature is Marmee of Little Women. Best mothers in Cozy Mysteries, my favorite genre, are Meg and her mom in the Meg Langslow series.

    Good interview in the Feature, btw. I haven't read the books you mentioned, but did enjoy the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld.
