Blog Awards


So I have been awarded some blog awards and I keep forgetting to put them up.
First off, I was given the Sisterhood Award from Genevieve at Genevieve's Blog. She was interviewed by Elizabeth Scott and now Elizabeth Scott is holding a giveaway of Genevieve's favorite books, so be sure to check her out!

Then I got the Lemonade Award from Breanna at B is for Books. I'm not really sure what the Lemonade Award is for, but it's cute! And Breanna is a fellow TeensReadToo.com Reviewer which is awesome!
For my nominees I nominate: (and you can have both awards, because you deserve them!)
