You guys! I never thought this would happen in a million years when I started blogging but I've been given my first blogger award. Wheeeeeeee!! I can't believe it. I never thought anyone would bother reading my admittedly angsty brand of blogging but I've made such awesome blogger friends on here. Thanks so much to Lani @ Sleepless In Samoa who nominated me for this award. My only complaint is that I can't nominate her for an award back because she deserves that and more!
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun.
I'm having a hard time choosing who to nominate because there are so many I want to give it to. In the end, I decided on bloggers that I've built up a good friendship with, who always give great advice and comments and who have put up with my recent rants with much patience and good humor. Here are my nominees (in no particular order):
BJ @ Dark Side of The Covers: BJ is one cool lady. Her blog is the most interactive one I have seen in the blogosphere and I love popping over and having a look around. Her reviews are funny and engaging and she has a great sense of humor. I can always count on BJ for an honest review and to tell me things that other reviewers don't!
Ashley @ Bookaholics Anonymous: Ashley is my go to lady for all things Vampire Academy, so I'm bugging her a lot with my constant Rose & Dimitri talk. Ashley is writing a very cool vampire book at the moment so I feel we have a bit of a connection there too. I very rarely warm to people straight off but Ashley is so genuine and nice that I felt I knew her right away.
Beth @ Sweet Books'n'Stuff: Beth's blog name describes her perfectly. She is a very sweet lady who always finds the time to visit my blog. Her insights are always on the money and I love that she is a bit obsessive about TV shows the way I am. Plus she has a cute dog and I'm a dog person.
Jinny @ SkyInk: Jinny's blog is my inspiration to keep reading. She is an overachieving reader and I love her for it. Jinny has introduced me to a great many books that I would never have heard of and her reviews are always in depth without giving anything spoilery away.
Alexia @ Alexia's Books and Such...: I'm not sure anymore if Alexia found my blog or if I found hers. I just got a comment on my blog one day and that was it. That's what's so great about her. Even though her readership is pretty big Alexia always finds the time to return a comment. Alexia's reviews all types of books and I count on her to widen my reading net. Yeah I am lazy :)
I realise that if this were an Oscar's speech they would be cutting over my acceptance speech with music but it's my blog and I'll babble if I want to. Thanks again guys for being such great blogger friends!
