We are the featured bloggers this week!

When did you start blogging?
We actually started blogging back in 2011 with the encouragement of my (Kristine) 12 yr old daughter who blogs. Shortly after, Terri (the other half of Twin Spin) was diagnosed with a rare muscle disease and had a rough year getting it under control and we had to let it slide. This year has been a very positive year with her health so we started regularly blogging again back in September.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
We love it all! Being able to talk about our favorite passtime to other like minded people is great. We love connecting with so many wonderful people.

What type of books do you mainly blog about?
We try to cover as many different genres as we can so that we have a wide range for everyone. Lately I have been blogging a lot of New Adult and Terri has been blogging a lot of Historical Fiction but we are not limited to that.

What is your favorite book(s)?
This is a tough one to answer because we have read so many great books. Some authors that we really enjoy and agree on are Kate Morton, Sarah Jio and Diane Chamberlain. Terri's favorite book that she has read in recent years is The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. I can't pick just one although I did adore The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I think that the best thing would be connecting with so many great authors that we would never have heard of if it wasn't for blogging. We've had the opportunity to read a lot of great titles from up and coming authors that we would not have found otherwise. Connecting with so many other bloggers and talking books is an added bonus as well!

This week's question is...

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving Day food? If you’re not American or Canadian, what is your favorite holiday food?

Our favorite Thanksgiving meal (can't pick just one food) would be the traditional turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, turnips, homemade dinner rolls, a wide variety of salads and apple pie for dessert.  My mouth is just watering thinking about it. Our Thanksgiving was back in October so it has been a while since we have enjoyed over-eating with our families! Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American followers. What is your favorite food?

That is my Feature and Follow Friday for this week! Comment down below if you're a new follower of mine with a link to your blog and I will make sure to follow you back. You can follow us via gfc and bloglovin and we would love it if we could get some new followers on twitter and on facebook.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Mashed potatoes is one of my favorite dishes. It's a really common dish in my house, though, so I don't really consider it my Thanksgiving dish.

    Congrats on being featured. (I followed by Bloglovin.)

  10. Congrats on being a feature! The Fault in our Stars is one of my favourites. I'm with you on the best thing since blogging, there's been so many books that I wouldn't have known about, and I've tried different genres I wouldn't have before. So, it's been fun to do that, too. :)
