Stop, you are making me blush...

The fabulous Jen over at Jen Ryland/YA Romantics nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award yesterday. A big, giant, mushy thank you to Jen who made my day:) If you haven't already checked out her blog please do so. She has got some great content and, unlike me, Jen doesn't suffer from a book hording condition. Instead she has awesome giveaways to keep her shelves clear for more amazing books!  I have only been blogging since January 2 and Jen has left some thoughtful comments and feedback, things that really mean a lot to a newbie blogger like me :) 

So according to the rules at The Versatile Blogger, I am to nominate fellow bloggers and post 7 random things about me that you may not know. I'm going to nominate five six blogs who I recently became acquainted with and I think are doing great things! 

1. The Page Sage- because Sara loves John Green as much as me:)
2. Glitter Lit- because Ashley just discovered the amazing world of YA Lit and I can't wait to read about her journey!
3. The Book Barbies- because Racquel always leaves me awesome comments and thoughts about books we love:)
4. Attack the Stacks- because Karen's reviews are snarky and sarcastic (in the best way) and I love it.
5. Hooked On Books- because Christa unabashedly loves science fiction just like me:)
6. Ashley Loves Books- because I wholeheartedly agree with Ashley's belief that YA fiction is the best thing out there!

Please take a moment if you can and check out these awesome book blogs!

Okay, so seven random things about me:

1. I love spicy food, especially Mexican and Indian.
2. I have a tattoo of an hieroglyphic symbol on my ankle.
3. I'm a HUGE fan of alternative and indie rock music (and subsequently addicted to Sirius/XM).
4. I make a mean Red Velvet cake.
5. My favorite job while I attended college was waitressing and tending bar at a comedy club.
6. I am obsessed with Jack Skellington.
7. I love to collect cocktail recipes (but usually don't ever make them:)

Be sure to check out the blog tomorrow because I will be hosting my first giveaway: A signed copy of John Green's latest: The Fault in Our Stars!


  1. Aw, thank you so much, this totally made my day! I am seriously so proud/honored! I will be sure to pass the honors along tonight when I have time to write a blog post. :D

  2. Oh my gosh, thank you so much! I'm so surprised and happy!!! (: Seriously, thank you!

    1. Sara, you are very welcome! I'm glad you saw my comment, I was worried you might not and I wouldn't be able to tell you about the nomination. Congrats and great job!

  3. Award totally deserved and compliments right back at you. Love that "Coming Soon" thing on your left sidebar. And you can bake, mix drinks AND you love John Green.


I would LOVE to hear your thoughts! Comments make my day and I really do read them all:)
