Feature & Follow Friday #52

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 click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required to follow the host blog ( and the Feature blog to participate in the #FF.

Our Feature  - Erika @ Let's talk about books


Hello wonderful PJV readers,

My name is Erika and I have an addiction to books. Oh sorry, wrong place…

I am addicted to reading and just like any person with a passion for something, I love telling people about the books I read. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone that loves reading as much as I do. My lack of reading buddies forces me to talk my fiancée's ear off with all of my book talk. I am not sure if he processes what I say but at least he nods and smiles in the right parts. Realizing that my fiancée can only take so much, I decided to start a blog. I’ve been Blogging since 2010 but I decided to dedicate more time and commitment to Let’s talk about books about 3 months ago.

Let's talk about books is a blog dedicated to reviewing and talking about... well, books. I love reading just like you (I am assuming since you are reading a blog about books) and began this blog to keep track of what I read, inform others about it and to meet fellow readers and talk about what we read. I read books from different genres as you can see from my posts, so this blog may include contemporary fiction, YA fiction, romance, historical fiction, non-fiction, etc... I'm a lame romantic girl, so you will see that most of the books I read will have some romance. I have many favorite books but it would take hours to list them. I will just name a few that come to mind,  Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, The Mortal Instrument Series by Cassandra Clare, My Name is Memory by Anne Brashares and Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

I am always doing emergency runs/visits to my nearest Barnes & Noble,, and local library. So if you have any suggestions on what I should read next, just let me know. Do not hesitate to say hello, the reason for my blog is to make friends and discuss what we read.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about me and joining me in talking about books.

Thanks a million to Parajunkee for featuring me. Now I owe her cookies but it’s worth it. J

Q. ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.

I have a lot of book/movie/hotties on my list. And I'm going to be rather cheesy on this, but I have to say I just love Jasper Hale played by Jackson Rathborne. I think it is the fact he goes around holding his breath all the time. That is fun...

And how would I react? Like I normally do when faced with someone I really am excited to see...stammer a lot and blush.

Now for the Follow Fun!

Love the Jasper vid. Jackson Rathbone is super hot. Hard to tear my eyes away from your site now :-)

ParaJunkee said...

@Alison - Thanks! I can't believe I found it.

Rachel Firasek said...

Love Jasper, too! I'm a new follower and a new FF participant!!! :) Siren's rule!

Amy said...

Stopping in to say hello and many thanks for the opportunity to meet new people every week who love what I love! Your blog is still great, blogging 101 has been so helpful to me. I would be interested in being a featured blogger someday. Here is my hop Keep up the good blogging and have a great weekend!

TheJennaGirl said...

What a great topic!! I liked Jasper, too, but I think Emmett was my favorite in the books.

I'm so glad I finally started participating in this hop! I've met so many cool new bloggers and found some really impressive blogs! Thank you!

Jenna @ the book element

Amy said...

Oooops, I cannot believe I left a comment and spelled my blog site wrong! A comment take-back button would be very good right now. So, correctly here it is....

Nixie said...

Checkin this out, I think this is awesome. :D

And I'd probably just freeze if I saw my favorite actor/actress/famous person. Except for Sherrilyn Kenyon. Got to me her, she's amazing. :D


Erika said...

That is an awesome video. I love Jackson as Jasper Hale. I always laugh when watching Twilight and I see him holding his breath.
Have a great weekend!

Nixie said... her, not me her. haha

Cait said...

Fab clip you have there, I agree he is pretty hot. Great question

Christy @TheReaderBee said...

Ha! Love that clip! I'd stammer and blush as well if I meet someone I'm gaga over... Between my nervousness and introvertedness, I'd just be a mess. :)

Sapphire said...

<3 Jackson! He's in a band called 100 monkeys and I went to a concert last summer. It was in a small club and I managed to push myself to the front-ish row where I was only 10 feet from him, but I didn't get to talk to him or anything! It was still a great night. My hubby laughed at me for even going. Lol

Grace Fonseca said...

Well your choice surprised me. I didn't pick Eric or Damon. Everyone picks them. SO I picked someone that I don't think anyone else would have picked hopefully.

Belle said...

Love this question! Very fun, though hard to pick who out of all the awesome characters I love I'd want to meet the most!

Tee said...

Hi loved the question...I actually told the story of meeting my character instead.

Sharon said...

Hi & Happy Friday!

I love Jasper/Jackson ;)

My FF,

Have a nice weekend.

Shelagh said...

Great question again this week Rachel. :)

The Jasper vid is very cool and I'm going to have to rack my brain to pick just one.

Charmaine said...

Mflick1 said...

I loved this question!! I am a romance and paranormal junkie so it was easy for me to come up with the answer! Thanks for doing this. I would love to be a feature.


Books and Senses said...

Hi :) My first Follow Friday :)
I totally love your blog, so I decided to participate in Follow Friday. I think it is a wonderful way to get to know new blogs! Though I'm from Germany, I love English books and reading English book blogs is a great opportunity to stay up to date ;)
Maybe you're doing a German Book Blog Special someday and could imagine to make me a "Feature" :)

So I say HELLO from Germany!


Jennifer G. said...

This is my first ever Follow Friday. Thanks for this opportunity to check out new blogs!

bex said...

Haha, I love the video! My favourite is Alan Rickman as Snape, but while on the HP track, I have a few more I love. Otherwise, I'm pretty picky with actors playing characters.

Interesting question this week!

Happy Friday. :) Already been following you for some time!

Rebecca @ kindle fever

Kristina said...

It is all about alcide!!!! HEHEHEHE

Lena said...

Stopping by to say hello. Nice choice. My choice would be Blade from the movie Blade played by Wesley Snipes or Keanue Reaves (Neo) from the Matrix.

Pedantic Phooka said...

I really appreciate that you host this every week Rachel! Love your choice... Jasper is a hottie. I especially like when he is dressed as a soldier in in backstory.

I'm having a giveaway on my blog this weekend, so please stop by!
