Blog Awards!

I'm definitely a little behind on this, but I wanted to let you guys know that I was rewarded with two more blog awards a few weeks back!

From Tina @ Book Couture

  1. Thank and link back to the person that gave this award.
  2. Answer the 10 survey questions.
  3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
  4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked to let them know about the award.


1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?
I definitely don't blog anonymously and I don't think that I ever could. The way I look at this blog is a personal blog with my opinions on books I enjoy. For it to be personal, you have to let out a little of yourself so people can relate.

2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side:
I don't think a day goes by where I don't show my stubborn side, so I don't think it's all that "inner". My husband and I are both this way, so it's a constant battle of wills around this house! ;)

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
I just see me. There's nothing special about me, but I am who I am and I love myself for that.

4. What is your favourite summer cold drink?
Oh, that's easy. Strawberry Smoothies!

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
This will be completely obvious, but I read or write. Those are my two favorite things to do, so when I have "me time", I go for what I love.

6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?
There are a lot of things that I would like to accomplish, one of those being to become a published author. I don't care how long it takes me, I really want my stories out there!

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?

I was definitely the shy girl to most - unless you were one of my close friends, then I definitely wasn't. My senior year was also full of me being "the ditcher" with some of my friends. I still graduated with a 3.75 GPA, though.

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see?
I have many moments in my life that stand out and inspire me. I don't think I could pinpoint a singular one right this moment.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
I put a lot of myself into the blog because I feel like it's the only way to really gain the readers' trust. But I also like posting about others and events as well.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
No brainer: sit down and read. I'm not much of a telephone person to begin with ... I like seeing someone in person to talk to them, or just e-mail or text.
