I was nominated for a blogger award. How cool and amazing is that? I can’t even begin to describe how proud I am, but I’ll try.

I’m not a writer, I don’t think I have a way with words, or even have all that much to say, so to have people read my book reviews (thank you!!!), like my posts (thank you more!!), and then tell me they nominated me for the award has left me completely stunned. It’s the most incredible and amazing feeling and made my week, if not my month, or even year 🙂

A great big thank you to for nominating me. I’ve only recently discovered this blog, and I think these two guys are the best. They are both incredibly talented: I just started reading Elijah Dart: Angel of Death by Jonathan Ferrara and I love it already. I’m having a hard time putting it down. Aaron Ferrara is equally talented.His illustrations are stunning and his cartoons crack me up like nothing else. 

Their blog is a great mix of personal stories, book reviews, great art, and is so beautifully done. I’m in awe of these 2 incredibly talented, funny and amazing guys, Jonathan and Aaron.

7 Random things about me.

3. One of my proudest accomplishments is reaching Top 500 Reviewer status on Is it weird that I’m almost prouder of that than my master’s degree?

4. My guilty pleasure is reality TV

5. And chocolate

6. I’m completely inept at customizing my blog. I don’t have the first clue how to make any changes or even how to add pages. I manage to add posts and that’s all I need I guess.

7. wow, this is hard…..hmmm…..another random fact about me…..I love really expensive purses and think nothing of wearing them with work boots and coveralls.
