Follow My Blog Friday #12

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.

In which Ems reviews books …

I’m a 30-something avid reader, determined to share the published word. I’m a dreamer and freely admit to sometimes preferring the company of fictional characters to real people. I’m perfectly content to spend my time in solitude with a great book.  I love to write, read, and otherwise exercise my creative abilities.I was once asked why I read. Really, the only answer I can give to that is, how can I NOT read? I’d much rather read than breathe. For reals. Same deal for writing. It’s just a part of me and always will be.
Reading in the Corner

HTML code:

"Hi, y'all! My name is Jessi and I blog over at ""Reading in the Corner."" Why did I start blogging? Well, because I failed at gardening, sewing, scrapbooking, cooking/baking, cleaning, and all things domestic. Okay, but seriously, I started blogging in February 2011 because I was reading so many books and I HAD to share them with someone (even if my only followers were my sister and my husband)! Since then, FF and many other memes have helped me discover the book blogging community and make so many blogger friends in the last 6 months! It's been really exciting for me to get to know you through your blogs.

Currently, I am a very BUSY person. I work a full-time job in academic library administration, a part time job in public library public services, and I take on graduate school in my spare time. (Can you guess my major?) In all my other spare time, you can generally find me curled up in some part of my little house in the country with my husband, two cats, and a good book. I currently have a minor obsession with YA dystopian and YA PNR novels, but at the moment I'm reading ""outside the box"" for my book club with ""Akata Witch"" by Nnedi Okorafor and ""Stuck in Neutral"" by Terry Trueman."

Q. If you could have dinner with your favorite book character, who would you eat with and what would you serve?

I would love to have dinner with Alex Cross at some fancy restaurant with interesting dishes I haven't had before.  I would ask him about his cases and some of his deadly foes.

I would also love to have dinner with Eve Dallas at a restaurant where she would be comfortable.  I would ask her to bring Roarke her husband.


  1. Alex Cross!!! Good choice!;)

  2. Great choices, here's mine

  3. Alex Cross! As a mystery/thriller girl I would have loved to pick someone like that too, but I choose someone with a healthy appetite.
