Hopping and Following

First up is the 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along hosted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance  It's a great chance for those of us who read adult books to find others like them.  Thanks to Laurie for hosting this! If you haven't joined in yet, stop over there and add your name!

This week's question: List three books off the top of your head that you read this year and you really enjoyed.
Gabriel's Mate-Tina Folsom
Taken Series-Lyla Sinclair
Blood Sin-Marie Treanor

Next up is Elizabeth Sharp's Follow Friday for Writers.  Thanks Elizabeth!  This one's for anyone who writes, including anyone who writes a blog.  This week's question: What moment has validated you and made you feel like a writer?

I was lucky to find someone early on who I can trust to read my work and grind through things.  I don't know if it was validation, but I definitely felt like a writer when I began to share my work with her.  Then being offered a contract by a publisher for Stolen Destiny certainly made me feel like a writer, and no matter what's happened with that experience, the feeling of reading that email that said "We would like to publish your book" will always be a fantastic one.  Finally, when readers leave comments on my excerpts, I feel very much like a writer. 

To see everyone else's answer, hop around!

If you're a new follower, please leave a comment so I can hop by your place. And old followers, I always love to hear from you.  Have a wonderful weekend!
