Follow My Blog #14

If you are new to the FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course 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 leave your name here on this post, 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!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

This Meme is hosted by Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read on Fridays.

Belle Books

My name is Emma, I am 24 from Glasgow. Currently in my final year studying tourism with Spanish, and I also speak a little French and Italian. I've been an avid reader since I was young, and since reading the Twilight saga I've found a whole new love for young adult/paranormal romance/vampire books. Harry Potter will always be my favourite series, it literally was my childhood! I even have a Harry Potter tattoo <3

Stuck In Books

Stuck in Books

I'm a middle school math teacher. My eighth graders frequently carry around the books they are reading and I found myself picking up their books as I walked around the room. As I asked them about the books they read, I became interested in them. Soon I was reading the same books as my students. The library at school wasn't enough, so the public library became my best friend. Then last summer I read 75 books in 3 months. My husband teased me all the time that I would get stuck in my books. Sometimes it took me a while to respond to him when he'd come to find me.

When school started, I was so excited to tell my new students about the books that I read over the summer. I wasn't prepared for their questions though. What did I read? Which ones were my favorite? What was I reading now? It seemed like a good idea to find a way to share that kind of information. So in January of 2011, I started StuckInBooks. I named the site after my husbands teasing. I find that I love sharing what I've read as much as I love reading the books themselves. In a short six months, my blog has grown a lot. Now I'm facing a new school year and a new group of students. I know just what to answer when they ask what I did this summer.

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

I would love to be Eve Dallas because I would have a hot and mega rich husband who loved me, be able to kick ass and have some great friends and teammates.


  1. Sounds like that'd be fun. The strong characters are always the best.

    New Follower ;) Here's my FF

  2. It would certainly be nice to have the mega rich indulgent husband, AND the ability to kick some ass! Great blog! I'm happy to be a new follower and I look forward to enjoying your reviews!

    Donna @ The Happy Booker

  3. Great choice!! I got the opportunity to get an advance copy of New York to Dallas I was trilled with the new takes on the series. Watch for my review next week. I however would not want to live through what she did as a child.

    Here is my follow Friday answer. Hope you will come by for a visit and follow if you enjoy. Have a great weekend!

  4. i'd love to be my own sort of Katniss character. I recently dyed my blonde hair brown, and now I feel all katniss-y lol! (I WISH!)
