Feature and Follow (1)




Feature and Follow is a weekly feature hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

The goal is to make new friends in the book blogging community and increase followers.

Question of the week: 

How do you decide what books to read? (suggested by So Many Books, So Little Time)

I'm so picky about my books so I tend to try different avenues. Goodreads is my friend! I don't know what I would do without this site. You can easily find books to read by ratings or friends that have similar tastes as you. Book Covers (oh I know - don't judge a book by its cover) tend to entice me to pick up a book. Last but not least is word of mouth. If someone is highly recommending a book then I will definitely take notice.

This is how I decide, what about you?

  2. Totally do the same thing as you, for the most part. And I just noticed you're currently reading All The Rage - so am I! I'm following you now, so I look forward to keeping up with your blog (and seeing what your thoughts on All The Rage will be). :)

  8. I don't know what I would do without Goodreads either! I LOVE it. I use it multiple times a day and I think if I wouldn't have found it, I might not have started book blogging in the first place. So YAY for Goodreads! :D
    And I have definitely found it easier to find books to add to my TBR now that I am blogging and from following fellow bloggers on Twitter and Goodreads, as well as blogs.

  16. Amen regarding Goodreads. I seriously don't know what I ever did without it. Reading what others recommend, what their reviews and ratings indicate finds me so many amazing new books!
