I Won A Blog Award!

Last week, Lori of TNBBC's The Next Best Book Blog gave me The Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you very much, Lori! I'm supposed to share seven things about myself and pass the award onto 15 other blogs. Hmmm, seven things...
1.) For the majority of my life (including at present) I've lived in an assortment of small college towns.
2.) I ran cross-country in high school and at the collegiate level. I ran two full seasons in college, was abroad junior year, and tried to run senior year but sprained my ankle early on in the season.
3.) I need to learn how to cook more foods, but I can bake fairly well. I recently made a rhubarb crisp for my father's birthday. It turned out fairly tasty, if I do say so myself!
4.) I hope to get a dog at some point. My family had one for 15 years of my life (I'm 22, so that's most of it!) named Troy, an incredibly sweet but spoiled black lab mutt.
Unfortunately, we had to put him down over Thanksgiving. I miss him, but am also glad he's not suffering anymore. I miss owning a dog in general, and would eventually like to get one.
5.) Father of the Bride (1991) is probably my all time favorite movie. I remember my parents had to do a bit of persuading to get me to watch it as a child, but I thought it was hilarious (and still think that). It's probably one of my favorites because I've loved it for so long.
6.) I love most animals but tend to shriek if I see an insect in my living space. While I think some are interesting, it creeps me out when they get indoors or on me.
7.) Impatiens are one of my favorite types of flowers. I think they can really brighten up one's yard!

Here are some blogs which I think are deserving of this award. I have three good friends from GoodReads who also recently started blogs, and while Lori passed give this award to them as well, I'd also like to acknowledge the awesomeness of their blogs.
The Allure of Books
Escapism Through Books
The Book Coop
And here are some other bloggers whose blogs have been around for just as long, but are just as deserving of this award.
Good Books and Good Wine
Chick Lit Teens
Book Rat
The Introverted Reader
Imagination In Focus
The Book Cellar
Ticket to Anywhere
Pop Culture Junkie
Frenetic Reader


  1. Congratulations on your award!!

  2. Congratulations and thank you!!!

  3. =0 Thank you so much! :D Also, how was I not following your blog before? Finals make me miss everything! Totally following now. :D

  4. Congratulations and thank you! I love to bake but hate to cook. Probably because I'm a picky eater except for my sweet tooth. I'm sorry about Troy. My young cousins have a black lab named Chase and they really are just great dogs.

    I love awards where I get to learn more about the people giving them!
