For our first Blogger Spotlight, we thought it would be fitting to talk about those who inspired this new feature. Just before Valentine's Day, Lacy at A Ravenclaw Library did a Blogger Pride post. She asked bloggers for one of their favorite posts to spotlight and was kind enough to feature the Ginger Mom with… Continue reading Blogger Spotlight #1 – Our Inspirations

I've seen a few bloggers doing something similar to this - Dani and her Weekly Appreciation, Claire and her Bookshelf - and I always love seeing the bloggers they feature. It also got me thinking . . . as book bloggers, we spend so much of our time reviewing, interviewing and spotlighting authors. But bloggers need… Continue reading Introducing The Ginger Mom Blogger Spotlight
I have become absolutely obsessed with highland / Scottish romancey books lately, and with Madeline Martin's novels, in particular. A while back, I reviewed the second book in this series (yes, I know I have a problem with the natural order of stories!) and adored it. I also read a teensy novella of hers (remember,… Continue reading Highland Spy – Madeline Martin [Spies + An Undeniable Attraction!]

What a strange question to ask, right? I mean, we're the reviewers, aren't we? Yes. But Facebook has this fun little feature (I won't say it's new because it could just be new to me.
