Follow My Blog #16

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.

To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host {} and (}and any one else you want to follow on the list.

First HUGE apology to Lisa - sorry I messed up the posts.

I have been addicted to books since my mom bought me the first 20 books in the Nancy Drew series when I was like 7 years old.  I know I have a problem, if I walk by books anywhere, I have to stop and look if possible, even garage sales and the grocery store!  I current am a middle school science teacher, but a few years after I started teaching, I decided to get a Master's degree in library science, and since then I have been searching for a library job.  It is hard to get out of science though.  So along with working at a bookstore part time, I enjoy sharing about the books I read with my students.  

I began blogging a few years ago on Live Journal.  I soon moved to a more public blog site, Blogger, when a fellow avid reader that I was one of my managers at the bookstore I work at told me about her blog.  I really read all kinds of books, but have lately, or maybe around the time Twilight came out, really gotten in to Teen or YA books.  There are so many good ones out there it is hard to not just read them all, or try to.  Not sure when this will be posted, so can't really tell what I'm reading now, because I could be many books past when I wrote this originally.  I guess I could say I'm currently reading whatever e-galleys I can get from, expecially YA books that have yet to be released when possible.  I really want to get my blog up to at least 100 followers because of some publishers on Netgalley look at that before they let you have a copy, and I enjoy meeting people who love to read the same books I read to get their opinions and new ideas to read.

Once Upon A Prologue


I started reading at an early age (I totally took a book to kindergarten and read it to the class for show-and-tell) and from there, my love of reading was born and nurtured through the years. I love discovering new authors (but have a soft spot for faves Jodi Picoult, Lauren Oliver, Patrick Rothfuss, Kelley Armstrong, Jennifer Fallon, and others) and making book-ish friends. I started my blog, Once Upon a Prologue in 2011 to reach out to other bloggers, and to become a part of a reading-related community!

When I'm not reading, I am most likely writing. I somehow manage to juggle way too many original characters, but I wouldn't trade any of them for anything. I also will proudly admit to being a shopaholic (especially scarves!), and I spend all the time with my friends that I can. I adore good movies, hot tea, and marathoning various TV shows. I'm a softie for cute animals and even though it drives me crazy sometimes, I really do love my job.

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? And, why?

Hmm good question but I haven't read a book that I would like to change the ending because they all have happy endings!
