If the tingles and joy we feel are any indication, this is akin to being named in the Academy Awards! Highly esteemed bookblogger, Jorie Loves A Story,  known for her thorough, thoughtful and honest book reviews has just released her End of Year Reading Survey. Categories are numbered.


  1. Best Non Fiction ~Memoir~ 3,000 Miles To Eternity: A True Internet Love Story

15. Best Debut Novel ~Non Fiction~ 3,000 Miles To Eternity: A True Internet Love Story

7. *Books from a genre you don’t typically read / was out of your comfort zone ~Memoir~        3,000 Miles To Eternity: A True Internet Love Story 

*Her generous praise included, “…It’s a story that champions love, faith, and hope – it’s a book everyone should read who loves happy endings but want to know what happens ‘in between’ the HEA! … I truly loved every inch of this story and the heart of their message.”

Please note, Jorie read 130+ books last year. You can read Jorie’s original review here.

We would like to thank Jorie for her intuitive and painstakingly detailed review of our book, and now for this wonderful and unexpected honor. We truly appreciate it. And there’s no wiping the smiles off our faces today!
