I've won an award!

Yesterday, whilst surfing the net and blatantly not doing any writing as I should have been, I received a message on the blog. It turns out that Jo from 'The Book Jotter', has kindly given me a 'One Lovely Blog' award!

When I started the blog at the beginning of this year, I only thought that I would be blogging for a bit of writing practise. So it's nice to see that someone enjoys reading the blog, as much as I enjoy updating it. Actually, by receiving this award I feel slightly guilty, because I haven't been updating it as much as I intended to. However, I'm nearly at the end of 'Memoirs of a Geisha', so there should be a review on here shortly.

Anyway by accepting this award, there are a set of rules that I have to abide by. One of those is to pay it forward and award 15 blogs, that I think are high quality and entertaining, with a 'One Lovely Blog' award too. So here are the list of blogs who I genuinely think, deserve this award:


Being Joan

Clear your Heart

Fashion, Art and Other Fancies

Raising Ruby


Backwards in High Heels

Hannah Stoneham's Book Blog

Harriet Devine's Blog

Fyrefly's Book Blog

My Castle In Spain

Notebook Stories

Papier mon Amour

Bibliophile By the Sea

A few of my favourite books

There were others that I could have added to the 15, but it was difficult to choose! However, if you are one of the lucky ones to have been chosen, then let me know if you accept this award by commenting on my blog, or if you have been awarded this before, then just feel free to comment on the blog. Then, it's your turn to pass this award on to any blogs you think deserve this award and you want you readers to know about!
