It was back to winter this week with temps well below the zero mark. Winter does not want to leave this year.
I got a lovely email from Feedspot this week telling me that my blog has been selected as one of the Top 25 Canadian Book Bloggers. This is the most comprehensive list of the best Canadian Book Bloggers on the Internet and I'm honoured to have been chosen. Yay!

I like immigrant stories in kidlit.
This one is described as a witty Regency romance.
Free Kindle books:
A novella Regency fairytale. Pure escapism.
Time travel meets the Wild West
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

Aj @ Read All The Things!
Same here it was warm and then it got cold again. The temps are supposed to go back up into the 70s this week but I don't know if Spring is here to stay. Congrats on being a top blogger. I hope you have a great week.ReplyDelete
We usually go from winter to summer, from winter coats to shorts. Not much of a spring...Delete
Congratulations!!! That's awesome- and well deserved. Good for you! :)ReplyDelete
Same here w/ weather- it's been cold and snowed twice this week. Spring is AWOL!
Thank you so much!Delete
Oh Winter won't leave here either! Congrats on the blog. That is awesome. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Congrats on the recognition. We are trying to push winter out too, but it is being stubborn.ReplyDelete
Yeah, makes me wish I lived in California.Delete
Congrats on being chosen one of Canada's top bloggers! Well deserved. Winter isn't leaving Minnesota yet either. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much!Delete
Congrats on being part of the Top 25! The Beast of Bath is eye catching. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on the amazing recognition from Feedspot. I don't know about you, but unsolicited praise always makes me feel special and makes it all worth while!ReplyDelete
Whilst your historical romance book choices are a bit too over the top for my liking, I do like the cover of 'A Wager To Win' and when I checked out the premise of 'The Beast Of Bath', certain aspects of the story line struck me as very 'Beauty And The Beast-ish'
Enjoy all your books and have a good week :)
2018 has been a tough year for me so far so this DID make me feel good. I don't usually read too much romance but these books did catch my eye for some reason.Delete
Congrats and enjoy all your books! I'm looking forward to spring too.ReplyDelete
This is the first time I am visiting your site and I should say I love it. And your blog deserves the prize and more. Can you send more of winter to my place at Dubai? The summer is almost here and I dread it already.ReplyDelete
Gayathri @ Elgee Writes
Thank you for your kind words! I have a sister who lived in Dubai for 5 months and said that the summers are unbearable. But I'd gladly send you some cold if you trade in some of that heat!Delete
A witty regency romance sounds a good description! Congrats on making it onto a list of Canadian book bloggers, something to lift your heart.ReplyDelete
I know, right? Whenever I see the words witty and Regency together I think it a great combination. Yes, the nomination was uplifting!Delete
It's just been entirely too wintery this year. lol Hope yall warm up a smidge!ReplyDelete
What a great group of books. A Wager to Win needs to go on my wish list. Let's hope for some spring to come soon. Thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
CONGRATULATIONS, Laura. :) They chose a great blog for sure. Exciting news for you.ReplyDelete
It snowed lightly all day yesterday, and it is quite cold today. I hope warm temperatures arrive for all of us soon.
ENJOY your books, and CONGRATS again.
Congratulations on being top blogger.ReplyDelete
