blogger-award

WHOOOOO HOOOOO! WHOOOPEEEE! HAHAHHAHAHAHA!

I’m just a tad excited about being nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award. I only started my blog December last year so I feel very honoured to be nominated!! It’s very exciting!! I think I’ve already said that haven’t I? Oops!  (;

I’d like to say a massive thank you to Shanannigans  over on Reads & Reels for nominating me! THANK YOU!

Here are the award rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

How my blog started:

I started my blog because of my profound passion for books. I just love them! I’ve never done anything even mildly akin to ‘blogging’ before so it was a bit of a step in the dark but one that has been absolutely amazing. I love rambling on about books I’ve enjoyed to friends and family. And now I can ramble on my blog! And I hope whoever takes a moment to read my reviews enjoys them!

Two Pieces of Advice to New Bloggers:

Don’t be frightened of taking a step in the dark. If you are thinking about starting a blog but are a bit nervous because you haven’t done anything like it before, don’t worry. It’s well-worth it. And also, the blogging community is just the best. It’s warm and welcoming and so, so supportive. Some really lovely people in the community! Not to mention the wonderful, wonderful authors and publishers!

It is an amazing feeling to be asked by an author/agent/publisher to review their book but don’t be hasty – only accept the review requests you really, really feel you want to. Otherwise, your TBR with be roughly the same size as Mount Everest in no time and you’ll be been swimming in books – and not in a good way.

Tag 15 Blogs:

This is quite tough as there is so many blogs that I think are absolutely fabulous. More than the fifteen limit warrants but these are the blogs I’ve managed to pick:

Swirl & Thread

By The Letter Book Reviews

BiblioManiac

Damppebbles book blog

Random Things Through my Letterbox

Little Bookness Lane

The Book Review Café

The Last Word-Book Reviews

Huge thanks to Shanannigans once again!
