NBR In The Spotlight

Just an hour ago I came across something that absolutely made my day.

I haven't been blogging for that long and I still feel like a newbie most of the time. I get a happy kick from every comment on my posts. I love it when people appreciate my reviews. I get ecstatic when someone asks me to review his or her book.

It never crossed my mind that the authors of books I review would actually be interested in my reviews too. Writers always seem so far away for me. They are magicians that conjure these magical works we peasants can only admire from a distance.

That's why I was so utterly surprised to see a piece of my review on Diana Peterfreund's blog. I do feel a bit embarrassed now that she has read my fangirl squeeing.

I so loved Rampant. It was one of my favourite books of 2010. And now the almighty writer has visited my humble book blog!

I still have trouble believing it. This is so awesome.

Wow, that is awesome! I am still a blogging newbie, but I once had an author @ reply me on twitter and say that she "adored" my review. That made my day! Such a good feeling! I am happy for you!

@ Shannon; Oh, that's so great! I can imagine that made your day (: Thank you, I still can't believe it, hehe.

Wow, huge congrats to you!! I loved Rampant, so I totally feel your excitement! I agree, to me authors were always these mythical creatures who would never even be aware of little old me let alone talk to me or read my reviews.

@ Small Review; Thank you so much (: That's exactly how I feel. Through blogging all these authors seem so close all of a sudden.
