My first award!

I have a *HUGE* thank you to give to Alice from The Reader Room! This is the first blogger award I've received and it totally made my day! I started this blog as a way to give back and pay forward all of the awesome book suggestions I've gotten from the book blogging community, and I'm so happy to see that I'm beginning to accomplish that.

To accept this award you must:

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.

Here we go!

1. Big, big, big thank you to Alice from The Reader Room! Anyone unfamiliar with Alice's blog should go right over and check it out. If I could give the award back to her I definitely would. Her blog rocks. 

2. Seven things, hmm...
  • I love baking. 
  • I am a gigantic fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • I went to an all-girls boarding school for high school and reading all these paranormal books set in boarding schools brings back memories (except for the paranormal parts....and the romance).
  • I adore parentheses.
  • I am a complete sucker for puns. The cornier, the better.
  • I'm 5 feet and 1 and 1/2 inches tall, hence the "small" in Small Review (when you're this short, you must count the half inches. Though sometimes, when I feel particularly tall, I round up and say I'm 5'2").
  • I have an adorable white German Shepherd who always manages to steal my pillow and sit on my book whenever I decide to read in her presence. Meet Snowball: 

And in the process of pillow stealing:

3. Fifteen fantastic bloggers I am passing the award to (in no particular order): 

Thanks for the awesome blogs!


  1. Oh my GOSH, I want your dog! She's gorgeous!

  2. I'm going to attempt to do this, I've only just woke up so wish me luck!

  3. You're welcome, and thanks for all your awesome blogs!

    Amber- Haha, I'll pass along the compliment. :) I was looking for your blog Coconuts and Cream, but I couldn't find it.

    Ah, ComaCalm, how I dream to be 5'3" :P

  4. Aw, thanks!
    OMGosh that is one gorgeous dog! I've never even heard of a white German Shephard before.
    I only count 6 things about yourself.

  5. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! Congrats on getting your first Blog Award! :D


  6. Thanks Zakiya LadyWings :)

    Aylee, Ha! Whoops! Well, I guess maybe number seven should be "I don't count very well" :P I'll go add one now...

    And you're welcome. :) I hadn't heard of a white German shepherd either until I saw her. She was abandoned at the animal hospital I worked in at the time.

  7. Aw, my dog was abandoned, too.

  8. Aw, it's so sad when that happens. What kind of dog do you have?

  9. Thanks for the award:) And you dog is sooo cute:)

  10. Thank you, and you're very welcome. :)

  11. Congratulations on your first award (I'm sure there are many more to come!) and thanks for passing it on to me. I appreciate it! :)

    Snowball is gorgeous!! xo

  12. Congrats on the award! And thanks for awarding it to me!!! I will totally blog about it once I finish this darn essay... ;)

  13. You're welcome Leanna and Avery :) I think your blogs are both very deserving. Thanks for the congrats.


It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
