Follow Friday Feature! (4)

Thursday, January 20, 2011



It's Follow Friday! Hosted by the always amazing Parajunkee's View, this is a chance to meet new blogger friends and grow our networks.

You guys! This week I'm the featured participant! I'm so very excited about this, because I just adore Parajunkee and this meme has already led me to some amazing blogs and friends. I will happily follow everyone back, and I hope you newcomers enjoy your time on my site!

If you are so inclined, you can also find me on Twitter and Goodreads.

This week's question is "Who do you cheer for?" My answer is in my bio, which I'm copying from what I submitted to Parajunkee.

Hello lovelies! My name is Logan (really? I know, quelle surprise!) and I started my book blog in December 2010. I'm working on a YA manuscript, but haven't read nearly enough YA books. I love challenges and starting a blog gave me a great excuse to join tons of reading challenges and expand my horizons a bit. I blog to share part of myself and connect with the rest of you awesome book bloggers, writers and authors. So far, I have not been disappointed. In the short time I've been blogging, I have met some truly amazing people, and I'm astonished by the amount of kindness and support shown to me on a near daily basis. I am so thankful to be featured this week and owe a huge debt of gratitude to Parajunkee, who runs one of the best blogs around.

But enough sappy stuff. Who am I? Why should you care about my blog? I'm married and work as a legal assistant for a non-profit organization. I grew up in Nebraska and now live in Chicago, which means that I'm a huge football fan (Go Huskers! Go Bears!). When I'm not watching football, I'm rooting for the Cubs. It's a lost cause, but someone's got to do it. I love the color purple, movies, and Shakespeare. I hate ketchup, bad manners, and most children. As for my blog, I mostly review YA paranormal novels, but some steamy romance, urban fantasy and steampunk books will slip in there from time to time. I post every day except Saturday, and I have two features each week: Writing Wednesday, where I post about, well, writing; and Silly Sunday, which usually involves a goofy YouTube clip. I hope you will stop by and say hello!

Be sure to check out the rest of the participants in Follow Friday!

New follower here! I'm not a big sports fan and to tell you the truth, I only ever watch basketball sporadically. I like the Miami Heat, though.

Hey, I saw you through Follow Friday. I really love your blog! I'm a new follower :)

As for this week's question, I'm not much of a spots person. I can get sucked into games if someone puts them on. Otherwise I'm not one to want to just watch a game. I'd rather be playing, haha.

Have a great Friday!

Neither of my teams are in it but if I had to pick....um who are my choices again?? lol

Howard Sherman said...

Who do I cheer for? When I follow sports at all (and that hasn’t been much lately) I follow people and teams who impress and inspire me.

My answers are all over the map (literally!) but all perfectly understandable once explained. Follow me over to my blog and read all about it -
