Friday Wrap Up

Its Friday yay!!!  I am really excited about the weekend as I get to visit some family and go see Alice in Wonderland!  This week I had a great time doing two feature posts (with a third to come) about books that (to me) have impact.  For those of you who have been commenting on my blog and those posts thank you so much!

I am really excited that I combined with blogger followers and networked blog followers I now have over 100 people following my blog!  When I started this blog a month ago I had no idea that in such a short time my blog would have grown so much.  I appreciate all your comments and follows so much and I also have really enjoyed finding other book bloggers out there!

I also received another award this week!

I received the Beautiful Blogger Award from Sara over at Along For the Ride :) Its really flattering to receive any award from my fellow bloggers so thanks super duper lots Sara!

Here are the rules:

1. Thank and link to the person that gave you the award
2. Pass the award onto 15 bloggers you've recently discovered and think are fantastic
3. Contact said Blogs and let them know they've won
4. State 78 things about yoruself

I recently received another award that I had to pass onto 15 people as well.  I had a hard time because I
was trying to find blogs I loved who hadn't received the blog yet.  This time I am just going to pick some of my favorite blogs!

1. Spellbound By Books
2. Paper Cut Reviews
3. Mindful Musings
4. Endless Reading
5. Jessica's Vision
6. SciFiGuy
7. Star Shadow Creative Mishaps
8. the Life (and Lies) of an Inanimate Flying object
9. The Unread Reader

Hmmmmmm 7 things about me :)
1. Obviously I love books :)  But more specifically I love the places they can take me, their smell, the sound a page makes when you turn it, and that they can be taken anywhere.
2. I have lots of tattoos though people are generally surprised by how many.
3. I am Canadian!!!!!
4. I am a Child and Youth Counselor
5. I have two cottages.  One is on a an island in a lake and its heaven.
6. I have a husband and two ridiculous cats.
7. I watch at least three Harry Potter movies a week.  

Jen over at, Crazy-for-Books started a blog hop that I think is a great idea.  Please go check it out if you are interested in finding new book blogs to follow and its a great way for other people to find you to!

Thank you all again for all your support and if you have any suggestions on how I can make my blog even better please let me know!!!
