Thanks for introducing me...

I have only been blogging in the book blog community since early August so I have not actually read a book that was recommended by a fellow blogger.  However, I have learned about so many wonderful new books through reading reviews and entering giveaways (and I have won some of these)!

One author (and her books) in particular has really sparked my interest and that is Michelle Moran, author of The Heretic Queen and Cleopatra's Daughter.  I have read several interviews with Ms. Moran on various blogs.  She seems to have a genuine passion for history and she cares about her writing.  Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and I'm also a history major so it's important to me for an author to really care about the history.  I am so looking forward to reading all her books.  And thanks to Wrighty's Reads, I just won her giveaway of Cleopatra's Daughter! Now I will get to read a book by this author of who I have become so intrigued.  I'm sure I will rush out and buy her other books as well.

Side note:  We have the same first name! =o)

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I keep trying to fight the urge to add all of Moran's books to the tbr list. But it's just soooo long. Maybe just one...
