Friends Award

Another huge "Thank You" to my friend, Reagan, at Miss Remmer's Review for this kind "friends" award. There are always amazing things going on at her fast-paced, info-filled blog! She's on a mission to inspire young readers to love the world of books, and I just can't wait to hear her stories when she gets into the classroom!

Now it is my turn to pass this friendly award on to people who have friendly blogs that I visit often:

Kim at Queen Bees Book Blog has so many good books coming up, especially cozy mysteries! Who could resist?

Sheila at Book Journey has a super blog, chock full of great book information, giveaways, guest reviews, and so much more. More importantly, Sheila puts the spotlight on other blogs, as well, and is always leaving positive comments and helping other bloggers.

Septembermom at My Voice, My View has been a wonderful friend of my blog and leaves the kindest comments. She has a beautiful and inspiring blog. She is a busy mom, a writer and poet.

Mary at Book Fan has a fabulous blog with all the latest in current fiction. She's going to convince me to step out of historical fiction and into current fiction with all her tempting titles! ;)

There are so many more great blogs that I visit and consider all of them to be friends. Thanks so much for making this a fun experience!

Wow Joanne! Thank you! You made my night! :) That is so sweet of you!

I will be sure to pass it on. Thank you again!

Joanne, thank you so much for thinking of me. I'm honored. Congrats to you for receiving it!

BTW, I love visiting your blog. The colors of the background are beautiful! I see you're reading The Tea Rose. I really liked it and want to read The Winter Rose one of these days. My daughter read both and loved them.

Kim said...

What a sweetheart you are, Joanne, and thank you for this. I appreciate your blogging friendship! And congrats to you as well!

Have you heard much about the historical novel Hugh and Bess by Susan Higginbotham? I heard about it on a Teaser Tuesday--thought it looked interesting.

Have a great day -- tomorrow! ~~ Kim

So glad all of you found your friend award!

Mary - Yes, The Tea Rose is a good one and I'll try to put The Winter Rose on my very long TBR list! :)

Queen Bee - Hmmmm, I think I saw a review of it and it was given a very positive rating. I'll have to pay closer attention and go back and look it up. Thanks for the recommendation!
