Saturday Spotlight: Award

I have been toying with the idea of doing some features on the blog for awhile. Alongside my Monster Mondays featuring my children, I would like to do a Saturday Spotlight featuring all things bookish. I would love to interview people involved in all aspects of the book industry *bloggers, librarians, book sellers, publishers, anyone ;)* If you would like to be involved please email me at and I will put together some questions for you. If you could specify which area of the book world you are in that would help me tailor the questions : D This may not be a weekly post it obviously depends on how many people email me, lol : D

For the first Saturday Spotlight I would like to post about an award I have been given *yay me* Blimey, I just noticed I have been given 2 different awards *squee*

Thank you so much to Lauren from I was a Teenage Book Geek for this award. Lauren is fantastic, she was one of my first followers when I was just dipping my toe into the ocean that is blogging : D Plus she leaves me lovely comments. Like I said she is fab : D

1. Thank and link to the person who gave you the award - check : D
2. Pass the award onto 15 bloggers you've recently discovered and think are fantastic - see below
3. Contact said blogs and let them know they've won - check
4. State 7 things about yourself - see below

As I am relatively new to blogging myself it means that everyone is new to me, but here are a few of my favourites : D

 I could have probably added a few more : D
State 7 things about yourself : S
1.I really want to dye my hair purple :D
2. I have a thing for literary vampires : D
3. I'm 40 next year but in my head I am still 22 : D
4. I dream about books
5. I think I have a bit of an addiction problem to books *see the tale of book addiction*
6. I worry that I am secretly an emo :(
7. I usual have my nose stuck in a book with my ipod in my ears - my hubs thinks I am anti-social lol
The 2nd award:

Received from The Beaucoup Review. Thank you very much Ria.

The rules are pretty much the same as The Beautiful Blogger award so I won't bother listing 7 more things about myself : D With regard to the list of bloggers instead of putting new ones I would like to list a few people that whose blogs motivate me and inspire me : D

Fluttering Butterflies - without Clover I would never have started this blog. She is an awesome friend to have and a very versatile blogger. Thanks for all your support & encouragement Clover.
