A Little Blog Love

In the interest of staying on top of awards and not killing myself off with monster-sized posts (like last time), I'm passing along an award I won recently from Erica @ Chapter by Chapter. I love her. Erica's husband is in the military and is coming home soon! Yay!! Her blog is upbeat and informational and a joy to visit. So... go visit!!




According to Erica, this one only has one rule: to share 5 fantasy/sci-fi novels that have inspired you. Wow. Okay, here goes. In no particular order, the five that first come to mind are:
  1. Lucifer's Hammer - If you want to cherish things like toilet paper and canned goods, this is your book.
  2. Fablehaven - If I could wake up tomorrow as the author of any series, this would be the one. Oh, how I wish I was that creative and original and could write like that!!
  3. The Maze Runner - wow. just wow.
  4. LOTR - no list could be complete without this! Duh!
  5. Deltora Quest series by Emily Rodda - I have hooked more non-readers with this series than with ANY other.
I pass some Sci-Fi/Fantasy love to:

Have a happy Wednesday!

Thanks, Shannon! Your awards inspire me! I am going to start storing the inspiration for the fall, when I plan to start writing again.
