I’ve been nominated for the Awesome Blogger Award. I’m not sure what I’ve done to deserve the nomination, but am definitely grateful. I’ve only been blogging for 10 months, but to connect with so many other bloggers and book lovers has been quite a ride!


Okay before I go any further, let me send a huge thank you to Jay at This Is My Truth Now for nominating me! If you don’t know Jay yet, you need to run to his blog right now and check it out! It is filled with wonderful reviews and lots of fun stuff!! Hurry! Go now!!


Jay says this award was created by Maggie  at Dreaming of Guatemala who said:

“This is an award for the absolutely wonderful writers all across the blogging world. They have beautiful blogs, are kind and lovely, and always find a way to add happiness and laughter to the lives of their readers. That is what truly defines an awesome blogger.”

So go visit that site, too! I just did and started following to see all the fun firsthand.

I’m a bit of a game-player (in only the fun way)… so I’ve created 10 questions with increasing difficulty. Be prepared to think!

What book best describes your life right now?

6314658not the story but the title itself. I’m feeling very sad and anxious today and have to keep reminding myself to just breathe…….I hate these kind of days.

What makes you immediately feel connected to your characters? Answer either as a writer or a reader.

As a reader, if I have been through the same things that the characters have dealt with or felt the same feelings they have.

What do you do with 3 hours of free time when no one knows about it?

I read of course!

There’s a million dollars in a bag under a tree. You can take it and no one will know, but you lose 1 year of your life. Do you do it?

Of course not…….it’s one less year to read!!

You must transfigure to an animal for the remainder of your life. Which one?

A snow leopard because they are so beautiful!!

One of your favorite authors asks you to help edit their next book. Do you do it?

No because I have no experience doing this and would hate to mess up one of their books!

A genie in a bottle — lame, I know — offers you one wish. You have to choose between the following two.  Which one and why? (a) a pill that will cure any illness or (b) a clock that can be turned back by 24 hours to prevent a disaster.

I would pick the pill and it would cure cancer. I have lost too many loved ones to that disease!

A family member has a secret that will change the world’s perception of you. You have the ability to lock them in a room never to be seen again. Do you do it?

Only if it’s my older sister! Haha she isn’t very nice!!

You find the Fountain of Youth and it offers you an opportunity to bring 2 people with you. Who do you choose?

How could I possibly choose just two people?

You have the opportunity to erase this post from your WordPress site, and I’ll never know you chose not to answer these questions. Would you do it? 🙂

No way! I would never do that! Lol



Okay, I’m so late in doing this tag that I’m not going to tag anyone, but if  you haven’t done this one and want to, consider yourself tagged!


My Questions:

What is the best way you have found to promote your blog?

What part of blogging do you like the most?

Do you like to do these tags?

How many books do you read each week?

Who started your love of reading?

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

If you could move anywhere in the world to live, where would it be?

What kind of music do you like to listen to?

What is your favorite color?

Coffee or tea?


Have a great day everyone and thanks for reading!!
