I Was A Teenage Book Geek has only been up for around three weeks, so I am genuinely amazed and thrilled to have received a few awards from my fellow bloggers. I was going to save my nominations up until I’d been going a little longer… you know, so the recipients might have maybe heard of my blog by then… but hey, I just couldn’t wait any more.
First up, I got the Zombie Chicken award from Jessica at A BookLover’s Diary. In case you don't know, Jessica's blog has a really fun rating system... which I am envious of!
The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.
Who am I to risk the wrath of the zombie chickens? Nobody, that’s who. Luckily, it wasn’t hard to choose five bloggers whose posts I would brave undead poultry for. (Okay, it was hard to choose just five!) My nominees:
1. Alex and Lauren at A Flight of Minds
2. Rhiannon Hart
3. Steph Su at Steph Su Reads
4. Jenny at Wondrous Reads
5. Zombie Girrrl at Crackin’ Spines and Takin’ Names
Secondly, I was the lucky recipient of a Lemonade Award from Rachel at her amazingly varied blog, The Obsessive Reader.
The Lemonade Award is a feel good award that shows great attitude or gratitude. Here are the rules for accepting this award:
Put the Lemonade Award logo on your blog or post.
Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.
Link your nominees within your post.
Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award.
Isn’t this a great idea for an award? On this one I’ve selected bloggers whose posts have a positive attitude about them. My ten nominees are:
1. Kristi at The Story Siren
2. Kelsey at The Book Scout
3. Sophie at So Many Books, So Little Time
4. B.A.M. Book Reviews
5. Reggie at The Undercover Booklover
6. Katie at Read What You Know
7. Rebecca at Everything To Do With Books
8. Shalonda at Shalonda’s Blog
9. Carrie at Carrie’s YA Bookshelf
10. Lauren at Lauren’s Crammed Bookshelf
Finally, I have been awarded the Let’s Be Friends award by Rhiannon Hart (check out her fantastic Dystopian reading challenge!) and Kelsey at The Book Scout - a blog that is especially good for finding out about fun-sounding reads you might not have heard of.
Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.
My eight nominees:
1. Jessica - A BookLover’s Diary
2. Rachel - The Obsessive Reader
3. Fay at Ramblings of a Teenage Bookworm
4. Kate at The Neverending Shelf
5. Mary - The Sweet Bookshelf
6. Casey at A Passion For Books
7. Jo at Ink and Paper
8. April at Good Books and Good Wine
I follow a lot of blogs in addition to these, so I have to give a shout out to everyone on my blog roll too. You all rock!
