Can you feel the blogging love?

I have to say I am really bad with awards. I have been given so many and I write them down on a scrap of paper with the blog address and then I lose it and forget who gave it to me.

So I am going to do a bit of blog loving today and say thank you to all you lovely people who awarded me fantastic awards and then share some of my favourite places to visit in blogging land.
Carmen over at Whoopdoo..ings gave me this lovely award, so thank you very much and more about Carmen at the end of the post.

Christina over at Reading Through The Night gave me this award.

Christina wrote a lovely write up of my blog and I was absolutely gushing. Christina writes some fabulous reviews and keeps my TBR list very long.

The Let's Be Friends Award came from Kristen over at Bookworming in the 21st Century
This award came from avisannchild over at She Reads and Reads

This one came from Missy at Missy's Book Nook and The Book Resort That is just the few I can actually remember. So thank you everyone who has give me these awards. I really appreciate you visiting my site and I love all your blogs too. Do go and visit their blogs as they always keep me entertained and add to my list of books.

As I am doing a bit of blog loving, I just want to share just a selection of the wonderful blogs I like to visit.

Things that mean a lot - if you have not visited Nymeth's site you really don't know what you are missing. I find such unusual books on Nymeth's site that I beginning to think I might need to give her her own spot in my Friday Finds. Nymeth is warm, kind and caring and has become a good blogging friend.

Whoopdoo...ings - Carmen is not yet a book blogger, but she loves to read and is always visiting my site and making such wonderful comments. Her blog is filled with lovely scrapbooking work and cards and she makes some fantastic and colourful ducks! Carmen has only been blogging for a short while and I feel I have known her forever.

Nothing of Importance - Debi just makes me laugh, her blog is so funny and she just cracks me up. Her posts are always interesting and definitely worth a read.

Peeking Between the Pages - Dar was one of the first people to join my blog and she has stuck with me ever since. Dar writes fantastic book reviews and often has an international book comp on the go. Dar is an avid reader and she fully supports the book blogging world with her many comments and her hundreds of followers.

These are just four of the many places I like to visit. There are so many more that I would be here all day. I have put my blogs all on a blog roll now in my sidebar, so do head over and have a look. You will find some absolutely wonderful sites to visit.


  1. That's given me a lovely smile while eating my marmitey toast this morning :) And the feeling is mutual. Funny isn't it how you just click with some people.

    I'll definitely check out some of your blogs later but firts to go get my lazy bum dressed ;)(Don't worry I'm not nekked!!!)

  2. Congratulations on all those awards!

    I really enjoy reading Nymeth's blog as well.

  3. I understand why you got all of those awards - your blog is terrific!

  4. You definitely deserved the Humane award...but my name is Christina, not Diane. :)) Heehee.

  5. Congratulations on all of your awards! I love your header, BTW! It makes me so hungry looking at all of those cupcakes. :)

  6. Aww, thank you so much, Vivienne! You put a big smile on my face :D I'm not at all surprised you got all these awards, as you and your blog are impossible not to love.

    I was going to say the same thing as Alyce...your new header makes me hungry every time :P

  7. Congrats on these well deserved awards :D

  8. Congrats on your well deserved awards Viv! You know how much I love your blog and am thankful to have met you.

    You got me all teary eyed with your post. Thank you for the blog love. You have really brightened my day and as you know I needed it.

  9. Just look at all those lovely awards...and every one of them is much deserved!!! I have no idea if you know it or not, but you are just one of those people who exude warmth and sweetness!

    And thank you so brightened a rather dull day here! But you dear, are the one always putting a smile on my face!

  10. Oh crap. I just commented, but then I clicked on something. And well, I'm just not sure if I hit publish first. And since you have comment moderation on, I can't figure out for myself. So please forgive me, if I'm repeating myself, okay?

    Anyway, as I already said (and I may now be forcing you to read twice), I'm not one iota surprised you've received so many lovely awards! You deserve them all, and then some! :D You are just one of the sweetest bloggers I know! Period.

    And thank you so very much for your kind put one enormous smile on my face on what has frankly been a dull day. (I'm in major cleaning mode. Ugh. But I'm rewarding myself with breaks to read my favorite blogs. A girl's gotta have something to motivate her, right?)

  11. Congrats on your awards! I haven't seen the first two before :)
