Feature and Follow Friday – 5/23/14

FF_2013ButtonFeature and Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  The idea of this blog hop is for bloggers to have an opportunity to make new friends and gain new followers.  I follow you and you follow me.  Fun!


Have you ever convinced someone to read a book, a series, or a whole genre?  What book(s) and who was it?  Did they like it?

redeeming loveProbably my most often recommended book is Redeeming Love by Francince Rivers.  This book is wonderful!  I have been recommending it for years!  Redeeming Love is a Christian novel that is a retelling of Hosea and Gomer from the Bible.  It is set in the Old West and it is a beautiful story!  I have recommended this book so many times I can’t even keep track of who but absolutely everyone has loved it as much as I did.


garden spllsMy next most often recommended book is Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen.  I absolutely love this novel.  It was my introduction to Magical Realism and is often the introduction to the genre to the people I recommend it too.  Again everyone has enjoyed it!


Want to play along?  Here are the rules:

  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  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 and that they are now following you.
  5. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. 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”
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers

Be sure to let me know you are a new follower, so I can follow you too!  Also I would love to connect with you on twitter and facebook!

  1. I’ve heard quite a few things about Redeeming Love. I’ve always been iffy about Christian fiction not because of the religious aspect because I’m Christian but I’ve always thought they might be boring. Can’t hurt to start with Redeeming Love especially with all the rave reviews. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

  2. I haven’t read either of those. I’ll have to check them out. I’m an existing follower on Bloglovin’.

  3. I love Redeeming Love! That was my home run book. I was a sophomore in high school and I HATED reading. After reading Redeeming Love I realized that I had to get my hands on every book I could find after that. Such a wonderful book! Also, have you read The Mark of the Lion trilogy? I think they are even BETTER than Redeeming Love (and I’ve reread that book 5 times over). 🙂

  4. I’ve never heard of Redeeming Love, but it sounds amazing. I haven’t read a lot of Christian fiction and never a Bible adaptation! I’ll have to give it a look! I’m a new Bloglovin’ follower! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I hope you had a great weekend!

  5. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. New follower here! My mom read Redeeming Love a long time ago when I was a kid (around 8 or 9, I think). She did not let me read it when I reached for it. Lol. I remember that cause I saw the book a few months ago when I was cleaning the house.
