My First Butterfly Award!

Jo-Jo gave me a Butterfly Award, my first award here in the blogosphere! (very exciting!) And since this is a meme award, I get to pass it on, which I am even more excited about because it gives me the perfect opportunity to fawn over a few of the blogs that I have come to enjoy so much!

I'm sure many of you, if not all of you, have received this award from other bloggers, (your blogs are all so awesome, I would be surprised if you hadn't) but since this award has been going around and I don't remember who all has received it, I will be fawning indiscriminately!


I hereby crown as Butterfly Awardees:

  • Becky at A Book A Week -- I stumbled upon Becky's blog while trying to figure out what was going on at the end of Amy Bloom's Away (the phrasing, in my mind, was somewhat ambiguous). I enjoyed her reviews so much that I was inspired to try writing one myself, and so Literary Menagerie was born. Becky, if it were not for you, I would have sent out resumes this December, instead learning about the wonderful world of blogging!
  • Trish at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'? -- Hilarious posts, great reviews, helpful advice, and a cute blog to boot! Trish's blog is always at the top of my reading list.
  • J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog -- I have a sneaking suspicion that J. Kaye is Superwoman, or at the very least, doesn't actually sleep! On top of writing wonderful book reviews, she's hosting at least twice as many challenges as I'm participating in!
  • Alessandra at Out of the Blue -- I love Alessandra's reviews because they not only give you a good feeling for the book, but are also easy to read and entertaining. The fact that Italian is her native language only makes this fact so much more impressive! (And the fact that after 5 years of Spanish classes I can barely communicate pleasantries, very depressing in comparison!)
  • C.B. at Ready When You Are, C.B. -- His dog Dakota picks the giveaway winners! How can you compete with that?
  • Serena at Savy Verse & Wit -- Wonderful reviews, great giveaways, beautiful site--my blog would have been so jealous of your blog in high school!
  • Teresa and Jenny at Shelf Love -- I'm almost afraid to visit Shelf Love anymore, every time I go my TBR list gets longer! They choose books to read that I've never heard of and make 1100 page tomes sound like must reads. Shelf Love has the best taste I've come across so far.
I have enjoyed so many blogs, but these are the ones that have impressed me the most, and sucked up the majority of my time, over the last month or so I've been blogging--you guys are amazing! If you haven't already shared the love, pass it along, and as always, Happy Reading!

Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.
3. Award up to ten other blogs.
4. Add links to the blogs you award onto your blog.
5. Leave a message for your awardees on their blogs.

UPDATE: The mission of Weekly Geeks this week was to point out our favorite blogs, so instead of creating a new post, this is now also a Weekly Geeks post. Go ahead, admire my resourcefulness.

you are too cute. My blog would be jealous of anyone else's blog in high school. lol I was never a popular gal...I'm shocked at all the praise the blog has gotten lately.

I'm flattered and blushing.

Thanks for the award. I will add your name to the original listing for the butterfly award.

Serena said...

Hi, I'm here to celebrate weekly geekiness, too.

I so get the jealousy comment for Serena's blog! It IS beautiful. It's so interesting who has what favorites - knowing that so many blogs are so awesome! What a web we are weaving... It's like playing 6 degrees in book-blogdom.

I see you are in MO! Is the photo of you kissing a sculpture of Harry? I've been to Kirksville; used to live in Jeff.

bkclubcare~ I am kissing Harry, I can't believe you figured that out from that little picture! I go to Truman State, but live in the Ozarks, so I drive right through Jeff, 3 blocks from the capital. On the way back to school one semester I stopped at the capital with a friend and we took pictures with Truman's head!

Frances said...

Ready When You Are, C.B. was one of my favorites also. Love it!

Robin of My Two Blessings said...

Thanks for the compliments, Meg! It's always such fun to find someone whose taste you agree with!
