Things I've Been Meaning to Post Up

Some time ago, I was given The Versatile Blogger Award by Danya from A Tapestry of Words: YA Reviews. Then, Carla from Library Mosaic and Lulu from The Book Worm is Here! both gave me the Stylish Blogger Award. Thanks for the awards guys and sorry for posting it up now (I did say I was a major procrastinator).

The award's rules are to:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason. 
  4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
So, I'll be sharing seven things about myself, confession style:
  1. I'm a shortie at 5'1" as listed on my driver's license. The lady who wrote down my height was being a little generous since I'm actually closer to 5'. Although my height used to bother me, I've now learned to accept that I won't be growing any taller.
  2. Speaking of driver's license, I can't really drive. I just have my G1 - the license you get in Canada when you pass a written test that basically shows off your knowledge about driving rules and signs - and that will be expiring later this month. 
  3. I suppose it's a good thing that you won't be seeing me on the road anytime soon since I'm horrible with directions. Shh, but in times of stress, I even forget the difference between my left and right! This actually happened in one front of a regular customer and every time he shows up, I'm embarrassed to serve him.
  4. I'm terrified of pretty much all insects and spiders, and probably would be diagnosed with a phobia if I lived in an environment where I saw bugs on a regular basis. What this means is that my parents - my siblings just laugh - must kill any bugs that I see at home and my friends will do the same if I'm out with them. I have awesome friends :P
  5. I'm clumsy, which is probably why I disliked gym. Oh, and the two times I broke a bone ... yep, in gym class. Let's not talk about how I broke those bones, shall we? 
  6. I used to be scared of the dark when I was younger. So, I would cover myself completely with a blanket at night to prevent the monster under the bed from eating me and create little air holes to breathe out of.
  7. I'm usually oblivious to what's around me. Friends have been known to wave at me for awhile and my family doesn't really ask me to help find things.
Okay, I know some of the blogs that I'll pass the awards are award-free zones but I'll be choosing them anyway because I think they're awesome (and will be contacting those that do accept awards when I get the time and if I remember). These 15 bloggers are: 
  1. Small Review
  2. i swim for oceans
  3. Supernatural Snark
  4. Imagination in Focus
  5. Snuggle Up and Read
  6. Recovering Potter Addict
  7. Read Between the Lines
  8. Frazzled Book Nommer
  9. Rainy Day Reads
  10. Irresistible Reads
  11. Miss Page Turner's City of Books
  12. In the Closet with a Bibliophile
  13. Daisy Chain Book Reviews
  14. Confessions of a Book Addict 
  15. Books for Company

Also, I have a couple of winners to announce:
  • The winner of my $45 CSN Stores giveaway was #15 - Ashley. She has already responded and been sent her promo code. Congrats Ashley!
  • The winner of my Reading Resolutions Hop was #97 - Rose. She has asked to be sent Poison Study by Maria Snyder. Congrats Rose!
  • The winner of a copy of The Grimm Legacy is #51 - Brooke. Please reply back within 48 hours or a new winner will be picked.


    1. Congrats on your awards and thank you for passing on to me! Shorties unite! :D

    2. Haha you sound like a real life of the party. :P You tagged some awesome bloggers, thanks for the information and congrats to you and all the winners!

    3. Thanks so much Zahida! Loved your seven things about yourself, I'm terrified of spiders and miserable with directions as well, you're not alone there:)

    4. I'm really bad with directions, too!
      Thanks so much for the award! I do believe this is the 8th time I've received the Stylish Blogger Award. I've never actually officially accepted an award on my blog before because I can't find the time. But I still really love receiving them.

    5. I'm 5 ft tall too :o) Not a big fan of spiders either. One time I was reading in bed and a small black dot appeared in my vision. I had to cross me eyes to see what it was, but when I did, it turned out to be a tiny spider hanging from a web and inch from my nose! I screamed! It was terrible!


    I love comments and will reply back via either email or stopping by your blog. Please note that this is an award-free zone.
