Feature & Follow Friday #2

Increase Blog Followers 

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog of the week. It is a way for blogs to gain exposure but also so you can check out and follow other blogs

This weeks question:
What are some of your favourite magazines?


Okay, confession time: I don't read magazines anymore. If I have time to read then it's usually always going to be a book. I used to read magazines all the time when I was in my young teens, now at twenty-two I don't have any I really like to read. I was absolutely obsessed with Kerrang! magazine when I was younger, it helped me keep up to date with all my favourite bands.

When I accidentally leave the book I'm reading at work I will pick up one of the magazines on the table and skim through it. One of the women in our stock department has a, what I deem, unhealthy obsession with the American magazine The National Enquirer, it's £1 and she loves it. From skimming through it I can kind of get why she loves it so much, it's hilariously trashy. Most if not all the stories have about 10% truth in them if that and I've never heard of half of the supposed 'celebs' in it.


So not a huge magazine fan, if I'm honest. I'll always prefer a good book. 
Remember to leave a link to your blog so I can come check out your answers!

  1. You know, I've never been into the music scene very much. Don't know why. It's just not really my thing. That looks like the EW of music, though, so I get it. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following via bloglovin'. Happy Friday! :D

    1. I think magazines provide about twenty minutes worth of reading and usually the content is the same throughout most of them. Books are definitely better! Thanks so much for taking the time to come check out my blog and follow back.

    1. I think I still see it in shops now and again, I haven't bought it in years. It seems most of us would pick a book over a magazine, no questions asked!

  8. I guess all answers are about the same. If it comes to choosing what we should read, we'll always pick up a book.
    Thanks for visiting!

  10. I guess magazines are good for "light" (or trashy) reading. I do grab People every once in a while, but I'm like you - if I have time, I'm going to read a book! New follower -- Bloglovin & Feedly (my favorite).

  11. The National Enquirer is good for a laugh! I usually just read the cover in line at the grocery store and it's enough to cause a fitful of giggles!!

    Haven't heard of this particular (UK, I assume) magazine, but I loooved My Chemical Romance!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. That's what I found when I read it, I couldn't stop laughing. I stopped making fun of her for being so obsessed with it after that. I could see why she enjoyed it.

      My Chemical Romance were the first band I fell in love with, the first band I got to see live- which seemed like such a big deal to me at the time! And yes it's a UK mag!

      Thanks so much for checking out my post =D

  20. I just visited an #FF that stated Kerrang as her favourite magazine. What are the chances?! Not a lot of music magazines at the #FF I find.
    I used to love them though, the indie/alternative ones - not so much Rolling Stone. I used to drive to the news agents with my Dad and we'd pick up a bunch of magazines. Those were the days ;)

    Cheers, Katarina :)
