My First Award

A few weeks ago, I was delighted to receive my first ever award from The Bookologist. It was the Honest Scrap Award and it filled me with cheerfulness to think another blogger could see I wrote from the heart. Then to my amazement I was awarded the same award twice more by Sammee @ http://iwanttoreadthat.blogspot.com/ and Jo at http://onceuponabookcase.blogspot.com . I couldn’t believe it. I have no excuse for not posting this sooner. It has just been the time factor.

This is the Honest Scrap award. It is for those bloggers who write from the heart. The rules are to pass it along to seven bloggers and then list 10 honest things about myself. Here are those deserving of this honour, bloggers who write from the heart and touch me because of it:

Nina@ http://jadorehappyendings.blogspot.com/

Juju @ http://www.talesofwhimsy.com/

Lauren @ http://laurenscrammedbookshelf.blogspot.com/

Jenn @ http://booksatmidnight.blogspot.com/

Lauren @ http://iwasateenagebookgeek.blogspot.com/

Reggie @ http://theundercoverbooklover.blogspot.com/

La Coccinelle @ http://theladybugreads.blogspot.com/

If you wonderful people have already received this award, it doesn’t surprise me. Just goes to show that we all see the truth in your blogs.

So 10 honest things about myself:

1) I am a worrier. I worry about the most ridiculous things like the fact that my copy of Random Magic hasn’t arrived yet and I’m not going to read it in time for my stop on the blog tour. Sasha Soren has been consoling me. I didn’t realise I was sending panicky emails to the author. I thought I was in touch with the marketing person at the publisher. How embarrassing! Thankfully Sasha is so wonderful and thought the whole thing was very amusing.
2) I sing all the time. Not proper songs just random things that I make up on the spot. My sister found this extremely annoying when we were kids.
3) I always try to finish a book even if I absolutely hate it. I can only remember not finishing two books. They are Eragon by Christopher Paolini and The Duchess by Amanda Foreman. I think they are frankly hideous.
4) My favourite colour is purple.
5) At school, I hated PE. I used to get my Mum to write me a note excusing me from everything except swimming.
6) I love dancing. My Mum forced me to do ballet lessons until I was 11 and I rebelliously refused.
7) I love jumpers and feeling all snugly in warm winter clothes.
8) I hate injustice, racism and deceit.
9) I’m an idealist. I believe the world can be a better place.
10) I like doing things that make other people happy. They make me feel good and happy too.

Congrats Becky ! :)

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

I worry tons too! :)

Thank you so much for the award.

The Book Bug said...

Congrats!! I hate PE too.


Amanda said...

Congrats on the award!
I hate PE too! I try hard to not stay out of PE even though I hate it, because I've noticed that those times I almost have gotten my mom to sign a note, there's always something fun in PE, so I try not to... :P

Nina said...

Thank you so much for the award! :)

Chicklish said...

Congratulations on the award and I love your list!

La Coccinelle said...

Congrats... and thanks! :)

Purple is my favourite colour, too. And I try to finish books that I hate, too... so I can review them. I try not to review a book unless I've finished it; it seems only fair.

Lauren said...

Thanks Becky, and congrats on getting this award yourself - it's a great one to get!

I didn't finish Eragon either, and I finish practically *every* book I start. Weird.

I Want To Read That said...

I love your list:) I often break out in to song too - I think it may annoy others - they are always telling me to shut up!

Lauren said...

Aww, thanks so much! :) And congrats on your award too.
