Feature and Follow Friday #2

TGI Friday, y'all!  
The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. It's a great way to find new blogs that interest you. Lord knows I have.

Here are the rules to the blog hop! To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

· (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}

· (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers

· Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing on either Hosts blog. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.

· Grab the button from either Host and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.

· If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed

· Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI.”

· If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love… and the followers.

· If you’re new to the Follow Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

~Q: What is the BIGGEST word you've seen used in a book lately - that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.~

Parthenogensis. The word parthenogenesis comes from the Greek παρθένος, parthenos, meaning "virgin", and γένεσις, genesis, meaning "birth". It is a form of asexual reproduction where growth and development of embryos occur without fertilization. 

I found the word in a friends Wednesday Brief flash story last week lol, and had to look it up. Of course, after I read the meaning I knew exactly what it meant and how it tied into her flash story!


  1. Wow! Terrific answer! Haven't heard of that word.

  2. An interesting answer and I hadn't heard about Feature and Follow. Might have to look into that (still figuring out the blogging thing...).

    Oh, and I totally dig the shark picture!

    1. *Snort* I'm still learning things about Blogger and I've had this blog since Jan lol!!!

      Yeah, that pic was rocking.

  3. Hehe. I know who used that word! :D

  4. Hopping through. I think I might already know that word but I can't quite remember.

  5. Okay, I'll raise my sci-fi geek hand and admit I already knew that one. ;)

  6. Hi, I am not a new follower but I had to tell you, I read Night Time Wishes the other day. That was so much fun! I can't wait for the second book now. As for big words. There is a word that is used in Dust& Ash that is a disease that a Dragon gets. I could not begin to pronounce or spell it. Let's just say it uses most of the alphabet and sounds like a greek or latin word. This next thought is being typed exactly as I thought it. " I wonder if its a real disease." Upon further reflection, I realize now there are no such things as dragon vets so how would we know?. It's Friday and my brain only works until noon.

  7. I don't think I've heard that one before :) New follower hopping through, hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
