Beautiful Blog Award :)

beautiful blog award

I was nominated for this away by Brin @ Brin’s Book Blog. It means so much to be thought of for blog awards and I’m honored to have been given another.

The rules for the award are as follows:

  1. Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them.
  3. Nominate 7 other bloggers and say a little something about them.

I like the fact that this award focuses on the nominees instead of the nominator. It’s nice to be able to explain why you nominated someone. ­čÖé

I nominate:

  1. Aubrey Joy @ Point Taken — I love the name of her blog and the cheerful tone of all of her posts. Her newsletters are fun to read and she takes place in a ton of cool readathons.
  2. Emily Mead @ The Loony Teen Writer — Again, I love the spirit of this blog. She has so much fun with incorporating gifs and humor into her posts, and it’s great to read.
  3. Sumaira @ Hyper About Books — Her reviews are well thought out and written and I love reading her random rambles.
  4. Merin @ Read and Reviewed — I love all the memes Merin takes part in. Her random discussion posts and monthly State of Merin posts are great.
  5. A. E. LaGrand — This girl’s poetry is ridiculously amazing.
  6. Kara @ What Kara Reads — Her book reviews are thorough and always suggest new books for me to read.
  7. Samantha @ Strings Attached — Okay, so this one is kinda a cheat, but I’m nominating my sister, because she just got back into blogging and she’s had some great posts recently. Also, she’s my sister, so…yeah.

Congratulations to everyone! Thank you for having amazing blogs and giving me great posts to read every day.

No one is under any obligation to accept the award if they don’t want to, I just want to give you all a shout out for being great.

Seven facts about myself:

  1. I don’t like science. Most of my family loves it but a combination of bad teachers and uninteresting information has left me annoyed at the subject in general.
  2. My hair was blonde and then it slowly (and naturally) turned red when I was in my early teens.
  3. I can’t handle spicy food. Black pepper is basically too spicy for me to eat. (I’m a wimp, I know.)
  4. I started reading YA books in 4th grade. It was really funny when I reread them when I got older and realized how many inappropriate scenes I had missed the first time around.
  5. I wrote two novels in elementary and middle school, with multiple drafts of the first book and plans for two more in the series. I dropped the concept because it stopped appealing to me as I got older, but I’ll probably come back to the concept some day.
  6. I’m really sarcastic. I don’t think I’ve put much of it into my blog, but in person I’m ridiculously sarcastic.
  7. I’m a total geek and I watch way to much TV. Some of my favorite shows are Doctor Who, Sherlock (BBC version), Once Upon a Time, Psych, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Merlin (can’t believe it got canceled). I’m behind on most of them (those that are still on the air) so please no spoilers!

I nominate:

  1. Holly at Belle of the Library
  2. Todd Medici
  3. Ashley at Words We Heart
  4. Jay at The Wolf of Starbucks
  5. Brin at Brin’s Book Blog

Here’s to a great 2015!
