Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.
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? 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!
How have your reading habits changed in the past few years? Did you get interested in a new genre? Do you read more? Less? Why do you think your habits changed, if they did.
I've always been a reader. I got my first library card when I was 3 and I've been a supporter of books ever since. Since I joined Goodreads back in August 2008 I'd say my reading has picked up tremendously and the blog has a lot to do with that as well. I went from reading 50 books a year from 2006-2008 to reading 240+ like I used to when I first started highschool in '04 and '05.
I've gotten back into YA a bit more than I used to. I didn't read a lot in that genre as a teen so I'm catching up a little bit here and there. I read way more graphic novels now and that's because of Darren (Mr. Turning the Pages). He got me into the genre we we first started dating in 2008. Now I've branched out and read not only graphic novels but Manga as well.
I've always been a romance lover but I find myself branching out into the contemporary romance genre more. Usually I prefer historical romance or paranormal romances but I've found a couple really good authors in this genre.
I think my reading has changed because of Goodreads and my blog. I've been exposed to a very interactive community of book lovers who introduce me to new books, genres and authors on a daily basis and I'm grateful for it.
