Someone Loves Me and It's Sher at Novel Menagerie

Sher over Novel Menagerie and Shana at Literarily bestowed this wonderful gift upon me. I also received this from My Friend Amy some time ago. And most recently from Dar at Peeking Between the Pages.

The rules are to pass this along to my favorite seven bloggers, so here I go.

1. Anna at Diary of an Eccentric because she has a fantastic sense of humor, offers comprehensive and well thought out reviews, and promotes authors through interviews.

2. Bermudaonion's blog is one of my new favorites thanks to Book Blogger Appreciation Week. There is a great mix of personal stories and anecdotes as well as book reviews written in a no-nonsense style. She even offers recipes from time to time---ooo those cheese straws looked yummy.

3. 3Rs--Reading, 'Riting, and Randomness has some random posts about current events, but she also issues comprehensive reviews to her readers. I love her blog and how she participates in a number of memes, carnivals, and challenges. Her answers to memes are always witty.

4. Amanda at A Patchwork of Books has been one blog I've kept up with some time. Her blog offers a variety of book reviews from nonfiction to chick-lit. I loved her latest post about the Machu Picchu travel guide. Those travel guides look scrumptious. Two places I have always wanted to visit, Machu Picchu and Easter Island. I hope this award brings her a bit of sunshine.

5. Alyce at At Home With Books is another recent find from Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I just love the style of her reviews. She regularly participates in Friday Finds, Booking Through Thursdays, and memes that are passed along the blogosphere.

6. Book Club Girl runs a fantastic book club on her blog. I recently participated in her last Web show with Ann Patchett. From what I understand she holds these discussions with authors pretty regularly. The Web show was easy to register for and calling in or writing questions in the chatroom was simple. I recommend if you need a book to read for a club, check out her site.

7. Suey at It's All About Books: She and I have been buddies since our days at Yahoo. I've watched her blog grow from the goings on with Josh Groban to her kids and library events. All of this is mixed in with some pointed reviews of childrens books and other novels. I also love her modesty.

I love your blog, too, Serena.

In fact, I gave you this award last week but I was bad and never left comments letting everyone know I awarded them. My post is HERE.

Great list of blogs you have here. There are a couple of new ones to me.

Congrats on the award! I recently have discovered a few of these blogs on the list (mostly through BBAW?). I'll have to check the others out as well.
