Versatile Blogger Award!

Back in December, Matthew Cook from The Illiterate Scribe blog gave me the Versatile Blogger award!! Thanks, Matthew!!

I was so flattered and pleased, but I was craaaaaazy swamped with Christmas stuff and the Big Awesome YA Giveaway and the smaller Curse Girl-related giveaways I was doing on my blog and on Goodreads. So I neglected to do a follow-up post.

I'm supposed to share seven random bits of information about myself and then share a few blogs I love.

1. I would rather drink food (like smoothies, milkshakes, etc) than eat food (like a steak).

2. I took horseback riding lessons as a child.

3. Despite the purple bow, my favorite color is actually turquoise, and half my closet is probably some shade of it (although I do love purple too).

4. I come from a family of creative people. My oldest brother is an amazing photographer who used to travel the world for his job, and my younger sister is a very talented artist who paints and makes jewelry.

5. I love dark chocolate. I rarely like milk chocolate (hershey bars? I won't even eat them).

6. My appendix ruptured when I was 19, resulting in numerous complication for me physically.

7. When I was a kid, I read mostly "adult" books. Now that I'm an adult, I read mostly MG or YA books... funny how that worked out.

Some of the Blogs I Enjoy Reading:

WordPlay ~ This is a GREAT blog for writers, filled with tips and information. KM Weiland has authored several books about writing and craft in addition to her fiction titles.

Emily White: Young Adult Author ~ Author of the upcoming (ELEMENTAL). She posts all kinds of interesting things about authors and book trailers and so forth on her blog, and she's a really kind person as well.

Taherah Mafi's Grab a Pen ~ Taherah Mafi (author of the newly-released SHATTER ME) is funny, insightful, and oh-so honest. Love her blog.

The Chocolate Chip Waffle ~ A poetry blog. Although she hasn't updated it in a loooong time, the archives are incredible. Such inspiration to me every time I visit.

Hairnets and Hopes ~ I met Vic sometime last year, and she is one of the sweetest and most encouraging writers I know! She's also an incredible artist... you should check out her deviantART page.


  1. Congrats on the award!

    I love the color turquoise. :D

  2. drink-food rocks!
    the appendix rupturing thing is super scary! that's soooooo dangerous!

  3. Laura: It also happens to be one of the most universally flattering colors, I hear. So, yay. Because I also happen to love red, but I look pretty wretched in most reds for some reason.

    Vic: Yeah. I could have died, actually. But it all had a happy ending, because that's how I started dating my now-husband. Maybe I'll tell that story some day.

  4. thanks for the nice mention. Congrats on the award. Blog looks good, as usual
