My first award- The Versatile Blogger: Thank you!

I am very excited to be posting about my first award, The Versatile Blogger! To my surprise- and happiness-  I received this from The Crazy Book Worm just a few hours before I set off  for holiday and upon returning home, found that I had also been awarded it from A Tapestry of Words.  Thank you so much to both of these fantastic bloggers who really made my day, I recommend that you check out their brilliant blogs for yourself!
It's such an encouragement that people like and enjoy reading your blog enough to pass on an award to them. To the blogs I have nominated- congratulations and enjoy it!

Here is how the award works:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

7 things about me:

· My first favourite author was Enid Blyton and I have about 100 of her books from a second-hand bookshop
· I love kayaking and canoeing as well as water slides
· I’m learning German
· I adore strawberries and ice cream
· I have a collector’ Victorian dolls house which I collect miniatures for (see photo)
· I have a collection of snow globes and china dolls
· I have a few short stories published in a competition anthology in the Young Wrtiers section

Here are the wonderful and worthy blogs I am passing the awards on to (in no particular order.....):

I have found so many fantastic book blogs through the Hop and other links but many of them already have this award so I have tried as much as possible to pass on the award to bloggers who have never received it (no post on their blog) before.

1) Jess Hearts Books
2) The Beaucoup Review
3) The Mile Long Bookself
4) This Miss Loves To Read
5) The Fourth Muskateer
6) Rihannah Reads
7) Steph The Bookworm
8) Amy’s World
9) Geeky Blogger's Book Blog
10) Bippity Boppity Book
11) Queen of Happy Endings
12)  Bookalicious Ramblings
13) Books Are A Garden
14) Princess Bookie
15 ) Historically Obsessed

If I have passed the award onto you and you have received it before, enjoy it and maybe you could do another post with worthy blogs that you have discovered after you received it before.

I would love it if your blog was nominated for the award and you joined in with a post, it you left a link to it in the comment section

P.S Now I am back from holiday, reviews of books I read whilst away will be posted soon :)
