Feature and Follow Friday - February 17th

Feature and Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. This weeks question is:

Q: BeefcakeandBabes Asks: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

The first name that comes to mind right now is Tamani from the Spells series by Aprilynne Pike.  It just kind of rolls off your tongue.  Kinda pretty for a boy fairy, don't you think?

Curlypow here - I'm actually quite fond of Karou and Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone.  They are different without being cheesy

Welcome to the Paperback Princesses! Make yourself at home, take a look around our blog and let us know what you think in the comments section. We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts. We often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past. 

Due to the changes with Google Follower, we are now asking all new followers to use Linky Follower in the right hand column of our page.  Google Follower Connect will be discontinued at the end of February.  Thanks!

  1. Well. I found Karou and Akiva unique enough, but when I was reading the book they felt kind of... too exotic to me? Especially Karou, sounding very Japanese. It tickled me the wrong way a bit.
    I do like Tamani, though! :)

    I'm a new follower and I followed you both via GFC and Linky followers. :)
