Blog Award


Thanks to TV and Book Addict for this award!
Kreativ Blogger Award! The rules for this one include:
*Post 7 things you love
*Give award to 7 other bloggers who are creative.
Seven things I love:
1. My husband-he's so handsome and funny and it's so fun calling him my husband now!:)
2. My dog Wrigley-she's a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and she's so sweet! Plus, not many people know of or have Wheaten's so it's sort of like being in a cool dog club.
3. Books-I LOVE books. My first word was even books, so I've loved them for a long time. I want that library from Beauty and the Beast-anyone else have dreams of that??
4. Chocolate-nothing to say really, I just love it!
5. Star Trek-yep, I'm a nerd, but I'm a proud nerd! And yes I totally bought Fruit Loops for the Star Trek badge inside!! It's a sad sad addition, I know.
6. Board Games-I love playing games and wish I could have more game nights with friends. Settlers of Catan is my favorite, followed by Scene It because I can kick butt at that game!
7. My blogging friends-the blogging world is so nice and full of amazing people and I love connecting with other readers-reading blogs is like my warm fuzzy for the day because I realize there are other YA bookworms that squeel when they see book covers.
I award:
The Wife Rules-my husband yes, he started a new project so you should all check it out
Melissa's Bookshelf-super nice blogger and she's posted some awesome reviews-I've bought a few books recently based on her reviews-thanks Melissa

Don't Lose my Place-a new blog you should all check out-EmmyReader is really nice and her profile pick is from Harry Potter-love it!

I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too!

Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
