Happy Sunday my sunshines! I hope this day is treating you well! It's starting out to be a beautiful day here in Georgia - a hint of Autumn in the air, which I am totally diggin'! If only it would stay!
Well, I finished Elizabeth Chadwick's The Greatest Knight this weekend and I can safely say it will be my Top Read of 2009. This is one seriously awesome historical fiction novel! Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series finally has some competition in William Marshal - what a hunk!
Reminder: My giveaway for a copy of The Greatest Knight ends on August 30th! Click here to enter!
I am now onto Jeane Westin's The Virgin's Daughters. I admit to having some reservations about yet ANOTHER novel on Elizabeth I (even though she is my favorite monarch), but so far, so good and I'm enjoying Westin's style of writing.
This past week there has been lots of blog love thrown my way and I am thrilled and a little overwhelmed at it all! When I started this blog, I had NO IDEA it would go this far or even that I would stick with it this long! Now I can't imagine NOT having this blog.
Passages to the Past has been nominated for 5 BBAW 2009 awards: Best History/Historical Fiction Blog, Most Prolific, Best Writing, Most Humorous/Funniest and Most Extravagant Giveaways.
I have turned in my submissions to the judging panel and we should all find out who made the shortlist on September 7th and then let the voting begin! Good luck to all nominees...there are so many awesome bloggers that were nominated and I'm so honored to be among them!
The fabulous Lizzy J from Historically Obsessed - one of my fav HF blogs - has created her own award and yours truly is among the HF bloggers she has lovingly bestowed it upon! Isn't is so pretty? Thank you so much Lizzy - you are such a sweetheart! Please stop by her blog if you've yet to - it's as fantastic as she is!
Here is what she says: Amy from Passages to the Past - Her lovely obsession of HF novels. If anything happens with a novel or upcoming novel, Amy knew the day it happened, which she kindly shares with us all.
Have a great week everyone!
