They like me...they really like me!

My favorite new book blogger, Michele at A Reader's Respite, has just laid an award on me! I am sooo super stoked!

Now to pass on the love I would like to nominate 7 blogs that I heart very much. And without further adieu:

1. This might be illegal, but I've never been on to follow rules, so I must start off with A Reader's Respite. Her blog is the first one I visit when I start my morning ritual. She is fairly new (I say that like I'm an old pro!) and she is wonderful. We have eerily similar tastes, so I am always interested in what she writes and she is really funny to boot. Also, she's a pilot and I think that that is bad ass!

2. Elizabeth Chadwick - Living the History. I adore EC and purchase her books from the UK whenever I can. She writes great posts about her trips for book research (always fascinating) and gives us a glimpse into a writer's world (something that has always fascinated me).

3. The Literate Housewife Review. She was one of the first visitors to my blog. I was so geeked out when I got my first "comment" and I will always be grateful. She has a wonderful blog - I actually wonder where in the hell she gets the time to put in so much work on her blog!

4. Susan Higginbotham at Reading, Raving and Ranting by a Historical Fiction Author. She is the author of A Traitor's Wife, a novel of Edward II. Susan's blog is a mix of reviews, research and a little of this and that. She is extremely clever and humorous, oh, and her dog, Boswell is just so cute!

5. Tanzanite's Shelf and Stuff. Extremely good book reviewer. Hers is the first I go to when I want a good, thorough review of a novel. I want to be her when I grow up! P.S. I see today that she is reading an ARC of Devil's Brood and I am sooo jealous!

6. Medieval bookworm is on her way to York in England for school and I am wishing her all the best. She is a great blogger and a very quick reader - I swear that girl has a new review every day!

7. iLax Studio is the only non-book blog that I read, which says a lot! Kim is sooo funny and sweet and always has great stories! She is one of my best comment-ers and I really appreciate her support!

There are so many can visit them from the left side of my blog under Blogs that I Read!


  1. I laughed out loud when I saw the title to your post! That phrase was the first thing that came to mind when these awards started being handed out, but I didn't think anyone would remember Sally Fields or understand the reference!

    Anyhoo, you're well-deserving of the award (and thanks for sending it back my way!). You keep me up to date and I swear, a good 90% of the books that you review go right to my wishlist. :)

  2. Wow, thanks for that Amy! What a lovely surprise!
    I'm behind with my blog at the moment, but waiting to post a biggie about John Marshal to coincide with the paperback publication of A Place Beyond Courage.
    I would like to say that without readers like you, I wouldn't have a job, so thank you - seriously!

  3. Congratulations and thank you so much! I'm proud to have been the one to leave your first comment. :) I'm also glad that you took the time to contact me on LibraryThing. Keep up the good work. My favorite feature on your blog is the song listed for each review. I absolutely love it!

  4. Thank you Amy - I'm glad you enjoy my blog. I really like yours as well!


  5. Thanks Amy! I love your blog too, it's already my number one trusted place for historical fiction reviews. =)

  6. Congratulations! Such a fun award!


  7. Susan: you are so welcome! Thank you for all the wonderful posts!

    Michele: I bet your husband wouldn't like me after hearing that I contribute to your "habit" - hee hee.

    EC: I look forward to reading the John Marshal post! Keep writing and I'll keep supporting you!

    LH: there's no other way to say it - you're the bomb!

    Daphne, Meghan & Lezlie - thank you so much! I love all of your blogs and I am honored to be among one of the blogs you read!

  8. Okay Amy, you're it....consider yourself tagged (go here. You can kill me later for this! ha!

  9. Thank you so much! I'm sorry it took so long for me to come over here.

    YOU are the only book blog I read! And I love your reviews! I am always looking to branch out in my reading! :) Maybe I will check out some of these others for more ideas!
