Feature & Follow - #2

Welcome to the Feature & Follow

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 Rachel @ 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, 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.

Our Feature - Lisa @ Lisa Loves Literature

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 Netgalley.com, 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.

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

hmmmm....as far a series, I think I would change the relationship between Qhuinn & Blay in JR Wards BDB series. I just hate the fact that she hasn't put them together yet, it's like she's teasing me & I soooo hate to be teased. I mean seriously, if they were meant to be 2gether...dang it, put them 2gether! anyways, my rant is over & yeah..in my BDB world, Qhuinn & Blay would be together right now.


  1. I haven't read the series, but I'm a new follower! :)

    Happy Friday!

  2. Hi Shawnna..thanks for the follow & I'm now following you..lol! Happy Friday. Try the serie, it's really good!

  3. I agree! Qhuinn and Blay are totally meant to be together! Stupid, stupid! She totally won't give them their own book because the publisher will say there wouldn't be enough interest, but they still need their own HEA!

    Okay, stopping the moaning now. :) New follower.

  4. Okay, I really must read the BDB series now! I have heard so much about them and I haven't had a chance to read the series. I hate feeling clueless- must remedy the situation now :)
