What is Feature and Follow?
F&F is a weekly blog hop that consists of book bloggers. It is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. The rules of involvement are simple:
1.) Link up on the blog hop Linky gadget below this post, 2.) follow the hosts via their network of choice, 3.) follow the weekly featured blog via their network of choice (this week is Magic of Words), and lastly, 4) check out the rest of the blogs on the hop! If you become a new follower of a blog, let them know and they will follow you back.
The F&F is a great way to network, meet other book bloggers, and gain new followers. Even more so, it's a great way to drive discussion on a certain weekly topic.
This week, the topic is:
Describe your Christmas book haul! Which books did you receive? If you do not celebrate Christmas, which books did you receive/buy/read this week?
There are two bloggers for The Book Cove featured. Be sure to check out both of their follow sites.
Co-Blogger L.A. Kelley:
Well, due to bad Michigan weather leaving a majority of the mid-state without power for 6 days, our family Christmas had to be postponed until tomorrow (Saturday). So I will start this post with books that I have purchased/read this week and hopefully have a chance to update it with some after Saturday (it's usually a given that some family member goes through my book wish list).
Ever since I heard that Karey White was set to release My Own Mr. Darcy back in the summer, I was super excited to be able to get the book! For whatever reason, I put off the purchase until this past week. As most know, I'm a huge Jane Austen fan, and what could be better than a contemporary take on a classic? I am almost finished with it and I must say - it certainly didn't disappoint! It's smart and comical - with traces of Austenesque style but in a very much contemporary fashion. It is not a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, but a book that is written using the concept of Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy and how one 20-something girl took that concept of finding the "perfect Mr. Darcy" far too literal.
And that's my haul for the week! I hope everyone has had a wonderful time in their Holiday celebrations, and here's to great reads to come in 2014!
