Feature and Follow Friday (#13)

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and AlisonCanRead. It's set up so bloggers to discover new blogs and gain new followers. It's really cool! Every week two different blogs are featured. This week's featured blogs are A GREAT Read and Vivaciously, Vivian. Here's this week's question: 

Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
A: I've been blogging since March 2012, so it's a fairly new life addition for me! During that month and the February before it, I was in between jobs mainly because I had to get my visa sorted so I could continue to stay in the UK. I was extremely bored and wanted some sort of purpose for my day. I knew I enjoyed reading, so I thought it would be nice to have a place to post reviews. Not an original idea, but it was something. I had no idea there was an enormous community and the opportunity to connect with authors about their books and publishers for review copies. No idea! Every day I still discover something new, being a newbie to the blogosphere and I hope that never goes away.

Leave me a comment if you're a new follower! I'd love to follow you back!
