**Feature & Follow ~ #32 ~ Where I'm Featured!**


Happy Friday and welcome to the Blog Hop! 

This week's special for me. Why? Because I'm one of the Features!! *does happy dance*

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by the talented ladies behind AlisonCanRead and Parajunkee's View. The intent of this blog hop is to get out there and meet other bloggers and gain new followers yourself. What sets this blog hop apart is the Feature. Each week, two blogs are featured, one at AlisonCanRead and one at Parajunkee's View. So make sure to hop over to those blogs to check out this week's Features.

This week's Features are:
Primrose Musings
Bookworm Brandee (me :)

This week we have an activity - a bookshelf tour! 
So, I feel the need to qualify this tour before I get started...ahem, my name is Brandee and I'm a bookworm, a book addict...a full-on bibliomaniac! Okay, now that's out of the way...


Welcome to my library!







Enjoy my accent?!? Ugh!

  1. OMG I love that you have some genres separate. I wish I had enough shelves to do that. I just have paperbakcs, hardcovers and unreads. Congrats on your feature! New GFC follower :)

    1. *jumping up and down* I'm a bit excited myself! :) I'm glad you like my library...I'm quite proud of it myself...except for all those TBR'd books! *grin* See my, uhum, little problem with one-clicking extends to physical books too! LOL

      Have a great weekend, Traci!

    1. Thank you so much!! BTW, did you hear that accent? I am from Texas but my accent was more pronounced this evening because I've spent most of my day in Texas with Baylee and Ryker! LOL

      Happy Friday!

  16. Hopping through. Congrats on being featured. I don't think you have much of an accent. You do sound a little like my half sister though - she mostly grew up in Oklahoma City and then Dallas. I come from a long line of Okies who have very thick accents - although I've never lived there myself.

  30. Congrats on being featured! You can totally tell you worked in a bookstore for the simple fact that you have the books displayed instead of just being on the shelves. I am totally envious of the room you have to put your books, I need a bigger house with a library for all of my books.

  35. Congrats on being a featured blogger this week! I absolutely LOVE your organization on your shelves and the way you have some covers facing out and some binding facing out and then grouped by genre. It seriously looks like a book store (which I know you said you work at one). It's fabulous for this OCD girl! (However my OCD'ness hasn't spread to my own books as you'll see in my videos).

  43. First of all, congrats on being featured today, Brandee! That's very exciting!

    And WOW that's quite a library, I love how you've divided it up first by read and to be read, and then in different genres, too. It shows that you work in a book-store ;)

    I'm sure you'll be very busy today, answering posts from everyone who comes to visit today, I look forward to 'seeing' you and our sidekicks tomorrow. Have a fabulous Friday, Brandee! *hugs*

  45. I love your video! I'm extremely jealous of all those bookshelves and the way that you display your books. My TBR shelf is overcrowded as well. I think that is just an occupational hazard for being a book blogger, working in a bookstore, and/or being a librarian. Congrats on the feature! New Bloglovin follower.
