Double Awards

So, I got two awards.  I shall show you them in a minute, but first I need to apologize to the ladies who gave them to me for not getting this post up sooner. Sorry, Katie and Sarah F!
Now, on to the awards.

First up, the Kreativ Blogger award:
Lovely, isn't it? Thanks very much to Katie over at The Fiction Dairies. 
Okay, the rules:
I have to answer 10 questions about myself, share 10 random facts about myself, then award this to 7 kreativ bloggers.
This I can do.


What is your favorite song? I have to pick just one? Drat.  Well, the one I've been listening to the most lately is Stand by Rascal Flatts.  Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum and Back to December by Taylor Swift are close seconds.

What is your favorite dessert? Chocolate.  'Nough said.

What ticks you off? Bad grammar/spelling.  And songs that have a great melody, and then turn out to be inappropriate. Also the fact that Blake Shelton's song Drink on It hit number one before Jason Aldean's Flyover States.

When you're upset, what do you do? Mope.

What is your favorite pet? Cats.  I've wanted a black cat for ages.

Which do you prefer: black or white? Depends.  If we're talking clothing, black.  Wall color, white.

What is your attitude? I'm normally pretty happy and easygoing.

What is perfection? Brie with bacon and arugula.

What is your guilty pleasure? Chocolate.

  1. I only have one chemistry test left.
  2. I have broken my happy ending policy.  For writing, anyway.
  3. My family has two bee hives.
  4. My room is green.
  5. I call my computer Tish, my MP3 player Silvie, and my USB drive Lizzie.
  6. Because I'm homeschooled, I can go to prom four times.
  7. Peacock feathers are cool. 
  8. Sometimes I wish I was a tree nymph. 
  9. I had bratwurst for dinner last night
  10. I changed my main character's age in my work in progress.
I pass this award to:
Sarah F. from Inklined Writers
Sarah from Comfy Sweaters, Writing, and Fish
Pheris from The Word Asylum
Liam from This Page Intentionally Left Blank
Erin from Laughing at Live Dragons. 

Next up is The Booker Award, awarded to me by Sarah F. from Inklined Writers:
Thanks, Sarah!

  1. This award is for book bloggers only. To receive this award the blog must be at least 50% about books (reading or writing is okay)
  2. Along with receiving this award, you must also share your top five favorite books you have ever read. (More than five is okay)
  3. You must give this award to 5-10 other lucky book blogs you adore.
Okay, here goes.
Top books (in no particular order):
  1. The Harry Potter books by J. K Rowling
  2. The Trixie Belden books by Julie Campbell and Kathryn Kenny

Thanks again to Katie and Sarah F! 


  1. Thanks for these awards! For some reason, my RSS feeds for blogger blogs are acting up and not showing me new posts until days after the fact. Apologies if this is massively late.

    1. You're welcome! You're not late at all. You found this on the same day I posted it.

    2. And that was only because of the link you gave. Thanks!
      And, no matter what you think when you read my acceptance post, I am grateful for the awards. In writing the post I played a bored and dismissive person who hadn't actually wanted anymore awards. But don't worry!

  2. Thank you, Lily! Everyone knows that my life is useless without answering random questions about myself in honor of how great a I am. :) Bartwurst!

  3. Thank you lovely:) I'm posting up mine today!

  4. Thank you, dearie! I'll be posting it soon.

    I think it's time to plan the next DLYCW soon, right?
