Follow Friday: Armchair Travels

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View 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, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) 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!


Armchair Travel! Tell us about your favorite book in a setting you’d like to visit (a real place for this question).

That's easy! And yes, I'm going to totally do a promo on my own book, but it also happens to be true for this question. One place I'd love to visit is Russia! In college, I was a history minor and while searching the school catalog for classes to fulfill my credits, I found a Russian history class.

I think I had once heard of Ivan the Terrible, and then there is the infamous story of Rasputin and the Romanovs, but I didn't know much more than your average lay person, and I decided--especially since I needed the credits anyway--that I wanted to know more.

And the rest--no pun intended--is history. I fell in love with Russian history, especially that of the middle ages. Kremlins was born! Incidentally, book 1 Citadels of Fire released on May 27th. 

So, would I like to visit the setting of this book (a.k.a. Russia, the Kremlin, and all things surrounding them)? Uh...yeah. *Rubs hands together* And I will someday. When the book becomes a best seller. :D

Just sayin'...

  2. I had a similar experience. As an English major, I took a course on Art and Architecture in England. It was an amazing experience and I would love to return to the UK to explore more.
