Alex Cavenaugh and Matt of the QQQE are hosting a Pay It Forward Blogfest! The idea is to introduce others to three bloggers you find awesome. Here’s how it works: In my post, I’ll list, describe, and link to three blogs that I enjoy reading. Then YOU can visit them! Fun!
PS - just so you know - this was super hard. I can’t just pick three! But I had to and so I did. And here’s why I chose these fabulous blogs.
Katy Upperman: If you want beautiful writing, awesome book reviews and recommendations, inspiring pictures, clever and insightful posts, and just incredible motivation, visit her site. She blogs several days during the week and is just a super fabulous person. I'm so glad I've gotten to know her on my writing journey.
Jennifer Hoffine: Another super awesome writer friend who has MANY insightful words of wisdom about the publishing industry, writing, and really good books. And she hosts these AMAZING once-a-month contests that are super easy to enter. I've already won several ARCs and look forward to participating (and maybe winning!) each month.
And I'd be remiss (and a total FOOL) if I didn't pay it forward to YA Confidential. I may be biased, but the blog is full of awesome. We have teen spies that contribute to posts on a regular basis, we sponsor book giveaways every Thursday, and my writer friends who contribute to the blog rock!. Check out YA Confidential: All things teen, all the time.
So, check out these awesome blogs. You won't be disappointed. Trust me.
And it’s Friday Fives over at Paper Hangover! This week they’re looking for my five favorite childhood books. Well, far be it from me to follow the rules. I can’t remember many books I read during my childhood, so I’m choosing five I love now!
Knuffle Bunny. Seriously the best children’s book EVER.
Are You My Mother? I’ve read this to both my children SO many times in various voices and I never tire of it.
Anything Junie B. Jones. She’s a hilarious little whipper snapper. So, so funny. And my son has a friend who is so much like Junie B. She walks in a room and I laugh!
No, David! (and anything by David Shannon). These books were written for my husband. I SWEAR.
Little Critter (Mercer Mayer). Short, sweet, and totally adorable. I could read those over and over again.
And finally I leave you with a new discovery in the Miller household: Cleverbot
Try it. Type in a question. Or a statement.
You’ll be on that site for hours.
So, any blogs YOU frequent that I should know about? What are YOUR favorite children's books?
