Feature & Follow Friday #51

Welcome to Feature & Follow Friday (err Thursday) on

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. First you leave your name here, then you create a post on your own blog that links back here 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. The Feature bloggers are chosen randomly from participants in the Follow Friday or through twitter and blog introductions. If you are interested in becoming a Feature let me know! It is also required to follow the host blog ( and the Feature blog to participate in the #FF.

Our Feature  - Mickey @ I'm a Book Shark

I'm A Book Shark
Welcome to the world of Book Sharks!

Mickey is the blogger behind I'm A Book Shark. She really wishes there was a better explanation for why she's a book shark. A new twitter name was needed, and it had to be about her favorite hobby: reading! For whatever reason, sharks also came to mind and a book shark was born.

Mickey has been reading for as long as she can remember. It's her favorite pastime, her go-to activity, her escape from any bad reality. Reading is so awesome that her last name is even Reed! (Spelled wrong for irony of course.) And her first name is actually Michelle, so her name is quite like Richelle Mead. It never gets old!

Her goal this year is 200 books, and she's already 59% there. That's mostly because she reads almost every genre in any age range. She enjoys a good romance, perhaps a comical mystery, or a YA novel with angels and vampires. And audio books are a staple in her life! Mickey has a job where she can listen to books at work, and that makes up a big amount of her reading.

Besides reading, Mickey is a natural reddish-headed mid-twenties entertainment-of-all-kinds lover, girlfriend of boyfriend, mother of reptiles (and a cat), and addict of dessert. Anything chocolate is a welcomed gift in her life. Oh yeah, and she likes to blog. :o)

Q. In light of the Summer Solstice. Also known as Midsummer...let's talk about fairies. What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the fae?

I'll do both. My favorite fairy tale is that of the Little Mermaid. The real one written by Hans Christian Anderson. Taught me not to trust men ;)

Favorite series about fae. I have a bunch. But the numero uno would be the series by Richelle Mead, called THE DARK SWAN series.  As far as young adult series, I will have to go with Julie Kagawa's IRON FAE series.

Now for the Follow Fun!

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { } and any one else you want to follow on the list
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers -
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. LINKY TOOLS IS BACK! I paid for the subscription - finally so now you can add the links to your own post!!! To add the code to your own post click on GET THE CODE here under the list of names.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
  5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  7. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

Happy Follow Friday!

Grace Fonseca said...

I love this feature. It's one of my favorite hops. One day would like to be featured. Livre De Amour-Books of Love.

I read The Little Mermaid after I saw the Disney movie and I have to say that both terrified me. Ursula scared the daylights out of me (and still does) and the Hans Christian Anderson made me want to bash someone's head in.

This is my first Follow Friday, too! I can confidently say though that it won't be my last. This feature is so fantastic, I'm already in love!

nymfaux said...

I picked The Little Mermaid, too!!! --But I like the magic and wonder (and the happy ending) of the Disney version.--The original is sad and beautiful in a different way--I've only seen an anime/Hans Christian Anderson version--and a ballet version in the Danny Kaye movie inspired by HCA's life...Maybe I'm being a little glass half-full, but I still thought that the prince was tricked by the sea-witch and the mermaid chose to save him. <3

LOL, the Little Mermaid taught you not to trust men. I prefer the disney version, but the original is more realistic.
