Feature & Follow Friday!

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

I am so honored, because this week ParaDays has been chosen to be one of the featured blogs!

Q: What do you do with your books after you're done reading them?

Well, I actually turned one of my guest bedrooms into a library (because I mean, really, who wants guest to sleep over?). So after I finish reading a book, I go in there and find the perfect spot for it on my shelf! But in the rare occasion that I really just hated a book, I set it aside in a pile to trade in at my local used book store the next time I'm in town!

Feature Interview Questions:

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in December of 2011- late into the night after reading a really fantastic book and having no one around to gush with about it.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
I love that I get to be in contact with such great authors, publishers, and fellow book nerds on a daily basis!

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
The blog is mainly centered around the paranormal, but I read everything so there's a little bit of a mix on it.

 What is your favorite book(s)?
Way too hard! Some of my go to favorites are: Flowers in the Attic, Wuthering Heights, Harry Potter, and of course, anything by Poe :)

 What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I think the best thing has to be the interviews I've done recently in getting prepared for my first ever blog hop, Fright Fest, in October. I'm getting to learn so much about my favorite authors and their characters. It's been a really fantastic experience!
**REMEMBER: Let me know the way(s) in which you follow so I can follow back the same way(s)!**


  1. Trading is a great idea! I either shelve mine or give them away.

  2. *sigh* I cannot wait to build my own at home library. It will be the best day of my life lol.

  3. Hopping through. Congrats on being featured! So jealous that you have a whole library room. I have an "office" that basically functions as a library but it doesn't look anything special.

  4. Hopping by to say hello! :)

    Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!

  5. You're so lucky! I wish I can have my own library in my house. Or at least have more book shelves! (I only have 1 at the moment) And my books are taking up space on my drawer and tables.....
    But trading is always great! But I don't think I'll be doing that anytime soon, I'm too attached. ;)

  6. Ha right who needs a guest room when you can have your own library! So wonderful! I want one just like from Beauty and the Beast now wouldn't that be an awesome library :)

    Congrats on being a featured blog, I loved reading your answers. It's nice to be able to tell the world about wonderful books you read.

  18. Congrats on the feature! :) I am so jealous that you have a room specifically for books in your house. I have one tall bookcase (where everything is double-stacked and the shelves are bowed down) and what equates to one small one, cause I have a few shelves between a couple smaller ones. You can imagine I have them on the floor, the bedside table, my vanity bench, etc.! LOL I need a library too. New follower on Twitter, Facebook and GFC.

  19. I would love to be able to use a room as a library! That's awesome!

  28. Having a library is my dream. My house is so tiny and every room has a ton of windows, so wall space is at a premium. I can't turn any of the rooms into my dream library. Congrats on being featured! New follower.

    LisaILJ @ I’ll Tumble for YA

  29. Very nice! I do the same! I have a built in bookcase in my current bedroom so I just put them there. Or I will bring them to the library if I don't care to keep them. I mainly have e-books now though so they just stay on my Nook!

  52. Firstly I'm so envious that you've got your own library! I've got a spare room but it's more of a storage room because all of our boxed stuff is in there, but Hubby has told me that the quicker I can clean it out the quicker I can have a library, you would think that this is incentive enough but it seems I dislike cleaning more than I want a library :(
