BBAW: FIRST TREASURE

Today is the first day of BBAW and they have assigned us the following task in keeping with the theme A Treasure Chest of Infinite Blogs & Infinite Books.

Let’s talk about that first treasure today.

For those of you who participated in BBAW last year, what’s a great new book blog you’ve discovered since last year’s BBAW?

Tell us all about this blog and why you love it…why do you keep going back for more?

Today I'm going to talk about some wonderful historical fiction blogs that helped reintroduce me to my utter adoration of the genre.

Allie at Hist-Fic Chick was nominated last year (and this year) for best historical fiction blog so that was how I found out about her blog.  I immediately started following her and, in turn, was introduced to some excellent historical fiction blogs that have become some of my favorite blogs over the past year.

These blogs are:

Lucy at Enchanted by Josephine
Marie at The Burton Review
Lizzy at Historically Obsessed
Arleigh at Historical-Fiction.com
Heather at The Maiden's Court
Susie at All Things Royal

Also, a special shout out to Amy at Passages to the Past and the lovely ladies at Historical Tapestry.

And I must mention Marie at The Burton Review again, who has become such a good friend! Together we co-host the new historical fiction blog, Historical Fiction Connection.  Marie has given me the opportunity to share in the historical fiction world in a larger capacity and I will always be grateful to her for that.

So...if you're looking for some truly spectacular historical fiction sites, stop on by and visit these ladies.  Their utter dedication to the historical genre is inspiring.  I promise you won't regret it.

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!
