Feature & Follow Friday

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read and is a way to hop around and visit lots of different blogs!

Novels, News and Notes is a new blog and run by a few different bloggers like me, Candace, who blogs at Candace's Book Blog.  And Mel who blogs at Shot in the Arm.  Sara from Novel Novice has helped with the header and author list.  We have a few other contributors as well and you can find them in the 'About' section.

Novels, News and Notes From Your Northwest Neighbors is a blog that specializes in young adult authors from the Pacific Northwest area.  We feature them in reviews, interviews, guest posts and with giveaways.  We also cover book events in the Pacific Northwest and have put together a book club for book lovers from the area to meet up.  While we specialize in authors from the Pacific Northwest, we do have content that most any reader of YA will enjoy.  So whether you live in this area or not I do hope you'll follow our blog and stop by frequently!  If you live in the Pacific NW and would like to be a contributor there's a link to sign up at the top of the blog, we'd love to have you!  Our blog is also not quite complete.  We're still working on our author list and we'll have a complete design in a few .weeks days!

 We do not have a GFC, but please subscribe by email or RSS (on the right sidebar) and/or follow us on twitter @novelsnewsPNW
You can also find me on twitter @candacemom2two and Mel at @shiploadofwilco

This week we do have a giveaway going for a copy of Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein.  We hope you'll jump over and get your entries in!

Q: Happy Father's Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?
Candace's Answer:
I'm actually going to go with Elise's dad from A Want So Wicked by Suzanne Young.  He's a pastor and has strong ideals, but he doesn't force things upon his daughters.  He lets them choose.  He's a good father in that he's there for them no matter what, even if he doesn't always feel happy with their decisions. {Does this answer look familiar?  Well, that's because I'm the featured blogger on my personal blog, Candace's Book Blog.  This is a collaborative blog, so several of us post on here.}

Mel's Answer:
I'm going to say Hadley's dad in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith.  This may seem like an odd pick, but her dad stands out in my mind.  So....he didn't always make the best choices but in the end when Hadley goes to him and they talk things out he comes around and they get back to the beginning of the relationship that will renew them.  Her dad ultimately shows his love and support, so even though he seemed like a jerk to begin with I really found him to be a great character in this book!
