Firstly I would to say a MASSIVE thank you to A Grumpy Young Woman partly because whenever I read her blog it makes me chuckle endlessly and sometimes to the point where my sides do hurt. The dry wit and mild political incorrectness is just so fresh – I thought I was to the point! Not only has this young lady remained anonymous but in six days of blogging has built up quite a band of followers. It just shows that honesty is the best policy!
The second part of that MASSIVE thank you is because she gave me this
Now I am unsure as to where this award has actually stemmed from but after googling it for a bit and still finding no original source I will just follow the rules of many!
The rules for this award:
This award is for book bloggers only. To receive this award the blog must be at least 50% about books (reading or writing is okay)
Along with receiving this award, you must also share your top five favourite books you have ever read. (More than five is okay) You must give this award to 5-10 other lucky book blogs you adore.
Five Favourite Books
Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan – really looking forward to Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe.
One Day by David Nicholls – and after reading about how good the other books are on several blogs (Including Grumpy’s) and general reviews I think I need to delve soon!
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts – this book was just WOW! I would read it again if I had the time.
The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga – Read very closely to Shantaram and was just an amazing experience.
Lost Edens by Jamie Patterson – this book made me laugh, cry and feel things I cannot even describe a rare talent in her writing. Definitely worth the read.
Now there are many more on my list of favourites but those are the ones that came into my head at first thought. Each book has left me thinking about something be it shallow or quite deep it was a great experience from beginning to end
Five Nominated Book Blogs
There are a whole host of other blogs out there and one day soon I will be sure to list some more. I wish you all the best with this nominations and hope someone will be able to grasp where it comes from and exactly how it works!
Now onto the sign up for Bloggiesta September 2012! I am extremely excited as there is quite a bit I plan to do to my blog. Whether I finish my to do list is another thing but I believe trying is part of it and having fun with the creativity side of things.
So without further adieu I will be taking part (although one day I will be at work) and I am really looking forward to it.
So I urge you to click on the logo and if you have things to do make a list and take part.
Right I am now off to bed to get some sleep for my shift at work tomorrow! Night!
