The Liebster Blog Award

What is the "Liebster Blog Award?"
It’s an award that was reputedly started in Germany in order to give smaller bloggers recognition for their hard work. You receive this award from a fellow blogger that feels your blog is both worthy & important to them. If you receive this award, there are two rules.
1. You must award 3-5 other bloggers with the award. In this case, it is five.
2. The bloggers awarded must have less than 300 followers.
Participation is completely voluntary and is not limited to any genre or writing for that matter. Basically, the blog can be about anything and simply has to be one that you feel is worthy and that you would like to give recognition to by passing it on.

WebbWeaver received this award from Thomas Scopel, author and blogger of

'Staying Scared: The Official Thomas Scopel Blog'. See his site at http://www.stayingscared.blogspot.com/ We thank Thomas for this lovely award and now, we would like to pass this award on to the following blogs we read and admire:

1. 'Life is but a dream...' blog's head honcho is Kendall Grey. Kendall is an author and a whale lover, but what really makes Kendal stand out in the blogging world...she is fearless. Kendall says what we all are thinking and does it boldly. We like that!

2. 'A Woman's Voice' is Dolores Ayotte's baby. It features guest posts, book reviews, poetry and more. Dolores also has inspirational quotes...and who doesn't like a great quote.

3. 'Catch the Rush' is our friend, Lynn Rush's blog. Lynn is an amazing author who just signed a publishing deal and we are proud. What makes Lynn's blog so much fun: movie trivia and quirky polls like Coke vs. Pepsi, Nike vs. Reebok and WalMart vs. Target ...well, you get the point.

4. Blogger Jean Joachim is an fabulous romance author and her books have been featured on WebbWeaver, more than once. We are all huge fans...you should be too.

5. 'Dragonflyy419 Attempts to Combat Boredom' is the blog run by Jamie. We don't know this lady very well but her site is great and she has a 'cat page'. How cool is that?

Book Review for 'Once Upon a Nighmare' by Lee Moylan

Once Upon A Nightmare was written by Lee Moylan and published by Crystal Dreams Publising in October, 2008. It is available for purchase at http://www.amazon.com/

Sometimes our dreams can produce images much more deadly than any reality. When Sarah Bishop discovers that her recurring and escalating nightmares are a twisted, first hand look into the mind of a diabolical serial killer, she must set out alone and misunderstood, to track the madman reeking havoc on her restless nights.

Once Upon a Nightmare will make you cower at the thought of ever dreaming again. The scenes that are laid out in this book are torturous and downright devious. With a serial killer unlike any you have ever encountered, Once Upon a Nightmare is an original from start to finish. A pulse pounding, gut wrenching shocker of a good read, Once Upon a Nightmare will resonate within your mind long after the last page has been turned and the nightmare has ended.

Lee Moylan has penned a truly bizarre, frightfully hypnotic, gruesome tale that blurs the lines separating reality from fiction. A must read book for those not afraid of the dark or the visions that nightmares can sometimes hold. I am giving Once Upon a Nightmare a 4 spider rating…but please, be careful what you dream…you just might get it.

Book Review of 'Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights' by Jean C. Joachim

Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights, was written by Jean C. Joachim and published by Astraea Press in February, 2011. You may purchase this book at http://www.amazon.com/

Carolina Davis White is a talented artist in a loveless marriage. For two years, she has put up with this life and she can no longer stand it. Running away from her husband Brad, who cheats on her and uses his riches to get what he wants, seems to be her only option. So she flees to her family's cabin in the Catskill Mountains, a place she loves and in which she found peace in earlier times. There, she begins divorce proceedings.

Enter Mike Foster, a successful man who has lost his wife and child due to his driven work attitude. As Caroline connects once again with old friends, Mike reappears and reminds Caroline how it used to be when they were younger and in love.

This is book is an awesome love story. I started reading and couldn't stop...my favorite kind of romance. It has all the makings of a good love story; a friendship/crush/love that is re-kindled after several years and then goes thru some drama to finally end in a 'forever' scenario. There are some twist and turns that will keep you turning pages and the characters seem real and not 'too' perfect.

I'm giving this book a 5 spider rating and recommending it to anyone who is interested in a good love story. Don't miss this wonderful read!!

Book Review for 'Captured' by Neil Cross

Captured was written by Neil Cross and published by Simon & Schuster, UK. You may purchase it a http://www.amazon.com/

What would you do if you were given only a few, short weeks to live? Kenny Drummond is given that terrible news and decides to make a list of people he needs to make things right with before he dies. On his list is Callie Barton, a girl he went to grammar school with who was always nice to him when the other children were not.

Kenny sets out to tell Callie that he never forgot the kindness she showed him, but finds that she has mysteriously gone missing. There is suspicion around her disappearance, but her husband has been cleared of any involvement. No one knows for certain whether she was murdered or if she decided to leave on her own. Kenny feels he needs to find out what happened to her before he dies so that he can repay her for her kindness so many years ago.

This story by Neil Cross makes the reader ask, what would you do if you knew your time was limited? The story is interesting and the characters are honest and engaging. When you think it’s over, there’s still more to come. This novel was a quick read and I enjoyed it very much. It kept my attention and had me guessing what would happen next. I am giving Captured 3 spiders and recommending it to anyone who loves a good mystery.

Book Review for 'Book of Shadows' by Alexandra Sokoloff

The Book of Shadows was written by Alexandra Sokoloff and published by St. Martin's Press in 2010. It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com/ To find out more about Alexandra, visit her website at www.alexandrasokoloff.com/

As teen-aged girls are being found decapitated, their bodies desecrated by what appears to be satanic symbols, Boston homicide detective Adam Garrett and his partner are scrambling to track down the killer. What they soon uncover is an elusive world of Satanic ritual, witches and cult members, more shocking and sinister than they could have imagined.

With the help of a witch/psychic, this game of cat and mouse becomes more and more deadly and the stakes are at their highest. With little time before the next pagan holiday and undoubtedly, the next murder, Garret must envelope himself in this mystical world, a world that goes against everything he believes, with no way of knowing who he can trust or if he will make it out alive.

Alexandra Sokoloff has penned a wickedly sadistic, multi genre novel that keeps you reading long into the night. The very best of a thriller intertwined with all the draw and allure of a horror, The Book of Shadows will pull you along fast and furious, until its ending is revealed. With a storyline that hits you hard from the very first line, I am giving The Book of Shadows a 5 spider rating and urging all fans of the thriller and horror genre to pick up this book.
