Feature & Follow Friday #1

Welcome to Feature and Follow Friday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee that is aimed to help bloggers grow their audience and make new friends. They feature two bloggers every week.  I decided to feature a blog as well for my first!  Sorry if it looks a bit goofy, I'm used to posting reviews and not much else.  

This week I'm featuring:

Since this is my first Feature and Follow I wanted it to be special.  I decided to ask my friend Melissa from Reviews Unleased.  I have known Melissa since 2007, I believe.  We met on an online multi-player game and have been friends since.  It was actually her that introduced me to my favorite book genre: paranormal romance!  She started a Facebook book club Melissa's Book Club almost 3 years ago.  She lists books she thinks sound good and we choose what we want to read.  One of those books was Kiss of Midnight from the Midnight Breed Series by Lara Adrian.  I was like a junkie hooked to a new drug.  I read the whole series in a matter of days.  Then I went on to another series and another and haven't looked back.

  • You introduced me to paranormal romance what is your favorite book genre? Wow, that is honestly a hard one for me. I love Historical Romances, Paranormal, Sci-Fi and fantasy. I really think it just depends on the book for me. Except Mysteries, I've never gotten into that type of book.
  • Your husband Jason and you have a review website I think it'd be great if you told us how you met Jason.  My favorite thing to talk about! Jason and I met online. We ran into each other playing a couple of online games.
    We really got to know each other when I was dj'ing with an online radio station and Jason was interested in Dj'ing also. I helped him get into the station. I guess you could say that we got to know each other over our love of Music and gaming. once wee started talking we became inseperable.
    We decided one fateful day in september 2009 that i would venture out of Ohio and visit him in Pennsylvania. After that visit we knew we could no longer live in seperate states.I moved in with jason in May 2009. Moving in with him was a huge decision, i was leaving my family and everythign I've ever known to move to Pennsylvania. But guess what? Everything worked out perfect and we were married in October 2011. We have now been married 2 wonderful years and I could not be any happier. Jason is without a doubt my Soul Mate.

  • What are your and Jason's favorite books?  Ohhhh My once again this is a hard one to answer.
    Jason Loves Sci-fi Fantasy books. He loves the Lord of the rings series and at the moment is reading the Game of thrones series.
    My favorite book of all time is the Into the wilderness series by Sara Donati, this is a Historical Romance. Right this moment I'm really into the Divergent series by Veronica Roth.

 Photograph your fave read in a funny place.

(Yes, that's my goat Nosey trying to decide if that book is food.  
The book is A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson.)
