Sunshine-y Questions

I’m feeling pretty decent this morning. 9 hours of sleep with only one bladder interruption in the night seems to have done the trick. Why can’t that happen every night?? Silly body.

Anyway, a few days ago, I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award – Dani style. Dani blogs over at Perspective of a Writer and if you haven’t met her yet, you should. She always has the coolest, colorful graphics paired with such insightful posts about reading and writing as well as her many, varied reviews. I’ve done this award a few times but besides another one with really great questions, she mentioned that my blog is one of many that she looks forward to reading because it brings sunshine into her world each day. As you can probably tell, that made me feel really, really good so I’m really excited to answer these questions and thank you Dani. โ™ฅ

The Fall Book Tag

This tag was created by Shanah from Bionic Book Worm. All of the graphics used belong to her.

I was tagged by two of my favorites to do the Fall Book Tag: Mischenko at ReadRantRock&Roll and Claire at Brizzlelass Books. I decided to focus only on books I’ve read this year cause I imagine I may get tagged in this next year and I’ll have a new set of books to recommend (beg you to read) by then. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Get To Know Me Tag

I haven’t done a tag in while (cause I just have way too many stories to tell) and I actually had a story lined up for today but I saw this tag floating around and I remember Patty tagging me a long time ago (sorry!) so I decided to join in the tag fun instead.

Dreamy Book Covers Tag

My favorite internet librarian has graciously tagged me in a neat bookish tag that of course I had to do because I can’t deny her anything. If you have not met theorangutanlibrarian by now, well, I don’t know what to tell you except to give you this look that screams “you have a problem and you need to fix it now.” She was one of my first 10 followers and my 1000th comment (which btw, I’m quickly coming up on the 3000 mark orangutan so I hope you’re ready!). I could wax poetic about how fantastic her blog is and how much she’s made my blogging experience great but that pretty much sums it up so I hope you visit and follow her site because she’s truly brilliant!

Blogger Recognition Award

Good morning! It’s the end of the week and its been all about the tags. I admit it. I did tags because I had a lazy week. Well, it was a busy week and I’m still trying to get my thoughts together to share some stories (in between binge reading amazing books).

I was nominated by the lovely and awesome hsimone for Blogger Recognition Award. This is the first one for me to receive and I definitely thank her for this. If you don’t know hsimone, you should check her blog out. She’s a book blogger; posting reviews and tags. She’s really nice and you’d be lucky to follow her so go over there and click the button! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you to my buddy James for nominating me for this award. If you do not know James by now then you’re late to the party and need to come join us ASAP. He operates over at This is My Truth Now and he’s very intelligent and fun person to talk to. I always look forward to all his posts and we communicate regularly outside of WordPress.
