Exciting Shout-Outs!

Hello!  I have missed you all my fellow bloggers!  Life gets in the way at times :( and the weather, too, haha!  I have got a few shout-outs that I don't want you all to miss.
Here they are, in no particular order:

Exciting Shout Out One - One of my favourite bloggers, Gemma of Retrochick was featured in Shout Mag, pages 48 and 49.  She was one of the judges of the Search For A Teen Simple Star competition.  I find it exciting to see a blogger friend and a former colleague to be featured in a mag! She will also be on BBC radio Norfolk at 11:30am with Flint Hair and Flamingo Amy to promote the vintage hair styling event on 26th November!!  Please don't forget!!!

Exciting Shout Out Two - I was reading Grazia Magazine (Issue 295, 15 November 10) yesterday when I chanced upon two articles that really made me gasp (I always do that when I hear or read about writers I like)!  They were Emily Giffin, page 137 (a small article about her book, Heart of The Matter) and Jodi Picoult, on page 143, telling us about the books she's currently reading.  How amazing!!!!  Here are some snapshots of the pages:

So you might want to have a look eh?  I have read Jodi Picoult's Picture Perfect and Change of Heart and they were absolutely brilliant books! Jodi has got a unique way of writing.  I have never read anything like her kind of writing.  One of my TBRs is Emily Giffin's Love the One You're With and I got very good feedback about it!!! Will tell you about it soon!

Another Exciting Shout-Out - Please don't forget Talli Roland's Blogsplash on 01 December 2010.  The Hating Game is absolutely fantastic!!!! :))) Will post my review very soon! You can visit Talli's book website, here's the link - Talli Roland.

Oh and by the way, we've got a little bit of sunlight today, yay!!!  My husband and I went to Great Yarmouth to take advantage of it...and I've been so bad - I had KFC! 

I hope you all are enjoying the weekend :))))

It's so cool when you see someone you know beyond where you met them, online or otherwise, isn't it? :D

Have a great weekend!

Very cool reasons for the shout outs.

Hi Len, thanks for the follow - I followed back mostly because I used to talk to my reflection when I was little too. Mine had a name and was definitely a different person to me :) Great blog - always nice to meet another blogger from the British archipelago.

Thanks for sharing your shout outs!
Fond memories of Gt Yarmouth. :)

If only I was going to the UK for a holiday, you, Talli and I could have had coffee! :)

Enjoy your magazines and weather.
Jodie Picoult's My Sister's Keeper is a brilliant book (movie too). :)

Great shout outs! Love Jodi Picoult and am an avid reader of her books as they come out. I met her at an author talk once and she said she has a team of up to 12 people doing research for her - that's why no one else writes like her - she gets her facts straight down the line.

One of my past students is often featured in Grazia - she's a designer of shoes and clothing, high end. Karla Spetic. Watch her. She's going places.

Be looking forward to reading your review on Talli's book..:)

Ellie said...

Congratulations for your friend.

It won't be long until Talli's blogsplash!
