Reader’s Edyn

I always felt like I could do something more than just read. Finally, I have found both a creative outlet and a chance to do something meaningful with my reading. This blog was created in appreciation of and tribute to all of the authors who have brought me joy through their books. These reviews are my way of giving back to authors and providing recognition for the hard work that each one completes every day!

Follow My Book Blog 8

**Welcome to the Feature & Follow**

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of course and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link (on Parajunkee's site) above FEATURES --> Feature and Follow Hop --> and get on the waiting list! It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

**Parajunkee's Evolet @ Beefcake and Babes**

Out There:I’m married, I work full-time, I go to school part-time, I write YA fiction (but read adult romance and erotica). In Here: I’m single, I work full-time, I go to school part-time, I read and review adult romance and erotica, and I’m an aspiring adult romance/erotica author living vicariously through my dreams and the books I read.This is my alter ego coming out to play and being as bold she wants to be. Heh.
 I started blogging in Jan 2011 with the purpose of trying my hand at writing in a genre that I read all the time. I figure I’d start small, by blogging short-short stories. Needless to say, I’m still working up to those. It’ll happen eventually. I know this. In the meantime, I review the books I buy and participate in weekly memes like Follow Friday. A word of warning: you must be at least 18 years or older to visit my site. Beefcake, Babes and strong language (not all the time, though) abound.

**Allison Can Read's Feature – Le Grande Codex**

Hello there my name is Aparajita Basu and yes I'm from India. I created Le' Grande Codex in 2011 as an outlet to sight my views regarding the various books I read. I have become so book crazy that I finish one book and then move onto the next one without a stop. I am obsessed with books. I love buying them. I love collecting them. I blame 'Jo Rowling' for my unhealthy book obsession. Before I was introduced to the Harry Potter saga I was an occasional reader and not at all book crazy but not the case now. No worries i'm loving this part of my life really well.But this doesn't mean that I don't have a life.

Besides my book craze I am pursuing a B.A. in media Studies graduation course from Allahabad University, India and hope to make it big in the Animation industry. I also love to watch movies (preferably Hollywood 'cause Bollywood doesn't really appeal to me any more) and listen to music, going places, talking to people and helping round the house. So yes i do have a life besides books. Oh yes i forgot to mention i have an unhealthy but to a lesser degree obsession for Japanese manga as well. Oh and Le' Grande Codex is my second blog after The 'A' - Jurnale.



Q: 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?

A: Oh my! Give me a moment to think on this one. I shall return with an answer.

  1. What?! You'll return?! Hey........ what names are in the book you're reading now? You don't have to have a fancy list, you know. Just saying. Here's my random thoughts on the subject: Colorimetry

    I'm a new GFC & Linky follower!

    1. Laura - I know, right? How lame was that answer. But I went completely blank. I still can't think of anything. My last read was Mesmerized by Lauren Dane and it was Andrei and Piper. My current read is Starstruck by Ashleigh Raine and it is Micha and Jenna. My next read will be Fever by Joan Swan and it is Alyssa and Teague. That's all I got. Not much crazy there. *head desk* Thanks for stopping by! :)

    2. hahahaha Those are pretty good!! All of 'em! As soon as a question is asked, my mind draws a blank. Shoot... if someone asked me to my face, my jaw would just hang loosely!! Thx for letting me tease you about it. :-) And for stopping by my blog!! :-)

    3. *snort* Anytime! Thanks for making my day. :)

  2. Hey, I'm a new follower! :)

    Awww, I agree; this was a tough question!
    But I LOVE unique character names!

    Have a FABULOUS Friday!!!! :D


    1. Hi J.B. - It was so difficult. The best I could come up with is my answer above. LOL I know I have read some crazy names, but my mind is drawing a blank right now. Thanks so much for stopping by!


I lurve comments! Say whatever is on your mind; just keep it respectful. I am always game for a conversation. :)
