Feature & Follow Friday

I am so relieved that these blog-hoppy things still exist and that they still occur on Fridays! I am finally back to blogging after a long hiatus and am feeling excited and pathetic at the same time. Excited because I'm remembering how fun this is and pathetic because until a few hours ago, whenever I logged into "bloglovin'" I was greeted with a crushing message that said something like: "This blog has zero followers. Have mercy on this sad sack and follow her loser blog [frowny face]." It literally had a frownie face. Tres harsh! But then a lovely soul named Debbie @ I Heart YA Books became my first follower!!!!!!!!! Thanks Debbie!

ANYWAYS. One of the funnest things about blogging is interacting with other bloggers and finding people with similar taste who can help me decide what to read next. I am sad to see that so many YA bloggers I used to follow back in 2010 when I was really active have since absconded (not like I'm in a position to judge!). But there are sooo many more bloggers now and I'm pumped (if overwhelmed) about getting back into the scene and discovering other maniacal YA aficionados. Hopefully participating in FEATURE & FOLLOW FRIDAY, a weekly event hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee  where bloggerz can find each other and interact, will help me in that endeavor.

Happy Friday to all!

ETA: I am so bad at this. I forgot the whole point of the Feature & Follow Friday event, which is that every week there's a different Activity. This week's activity: reading nook tour! I usually read in bed because it is the most comfortable spot and if I want to take a nap after, the convenience is unparalleled:
If I'm feeling really wild and energetic though, sometimes I will go crazy and read on my couch:
