At this moment in time mine would be:

  • Die For Me – Amy Plum
  • Anew – Chelsea Fine
  • Unleashed – Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie
  • Pictures of Lily – Paige Toon
  • Glass Houses – Rachel Caine

2. Post the Booker Award icon.

3. Nominate other bloggers to do the same.

My nominees are:

Another Versatile Blogger Award!

     I’m pleased to announce that I have received another Versatile Blogger Award!

Thank you so much to Mama J Hearts Chick Lit for giving me the award.  Mama J’s blog is a lovely mixture of book reviews, writing progress and other fun things so make sure you check it out!

The rules of this award are:

Thank the person who gave you this award, and include a link to their blog.

Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. If it’s a bit of a task to list 15, and I don’t want you to feel being nominated is a burden, but mention as many as you can – 8 or 10 is fine. List them, and you might like to include a link to the sites, and let them know that you’ve nominated them.

And tell the person who nominated you seven things about yourself.

Right so seven things about myself are:

  1. I enjoy watching the Disney channel with my kids – So Random, Austin & Ally and Shake It Up are just some of my favourites 🙂
  2. I love singing to myself, especially in the car, I’m not very good at it but I enjoy it so who cares!
  3. I’m currently trying to lose some weight and get fit.
  4. I can’t dance.
  5. I have brown eyes.
  6. I have three older brothers.
  7. The first record I ever bought was Especially For You by Jason Donovan and Kylie!

I would like to pass the award on, in no particular order, to the following blogs because I love them all and read them regularly (you should too):
