Follow Friday

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: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

Christinabean kept nagging me to start a blog since I spent so much time at work talking up books I had read.  Eventually I just had to give in when she said she'd join me and The Paperback Princesses were born.  We still like to highlight as many books as we can find that will work for ISU's for school - there are so many great YA books that get missed for book reports - and we love to highlight as many books as we can that boys might like to read.  It's amazing how many reluctant male readers come into the library, but once they get hooked on a good book, the sky's the limit.  Now we've been going for just over 2 years and we're still having fun, although the old adage certainly rings true - so many books, so little time!
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.

  3. What a great story! I totally wish I could do this as a full time job but I think my husband would kill me if I quit my very stable job for a non paying one :-)

    Would love if you stopped by my blog, Ensconced in YA!

  4. It's nice to know that the two of you still love book blogging. Most people I know end up giving up after a few months.
