Inspirational Review Award

So often we come across reviews that inspire us to rush out and buy another book and increase our already scary TBR piles. At Royal Reviews, we’ve decided to give out a weekly award to a blogger who has captivated us with an amazing review.

This week, the Inspirational Review Award goes to two bloggers: Amy C @ Romance Book Wyrm and Kristie J @ Ramblings on Romance Etc for their collaborative review on The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley (posted to Amy's blog).

Their review is essentially a collection of emails back and forth between these two awesome bloggers about their thoughts on the book as Amy C was reading it. I loved the approach Amy took to this review not only because it was different but because it was exactly the way I would talk to my friends about a current read. Very entertaining! I don't think this was a book that would normally make it to my TBR pile but their enthusiasm was so infectious that I practically had no choice!

You can view their review here, guaranteed to make you smile.

Congrats Amy and Christie :)

Amy C said...

Oh WOW! I'm darn near speechless. This is the coolest award and I am honored that you would award it me and Kristie! I gotta say that it was her idea to compile our messages for something a little different than the normal review :).

I am so glad that it caused the book to catch your eye, because it is one of those books that I just can't imagine anyone truly not liking. Whether they read historical or not, or that time period (like me) or not, it's the characters and I loved them!

Thank you! :)

You're welcome! It was such a fun review and your love for the characters came across so well. It wouldn't normally be the time period I'd pick but it is on the TBR list now!

PS I forgot to tell you that you are welcome to put the award up on your blog if you'd like.

Wow!! What a lovely thing to wake up too!! When I got the email from Amy saying she had just started reading The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie and loving it, I was giddy with excitement. It's such a blissful feeling when another reader shares the same enthusiasm. So it was wonderful sharing Amy's love of this book with her while she was reading it - and offering up crumbs of what was to come - heh heh heh heh
