05052012: The Versatile Blogger Award

This morning when I woke up I was delighted to have found out I had been awarded The Versatile Blogger award by Theta from Resolution Corner. So thank you very much Theta and I hope all the Daleks steer clear from you whenever they come to destroy Earth. 

Due to the fact I have won I have to do two things, one provide 7facts about myself, and two, to nominate and award 15 other bloggers The Versatile Blogger award. Simple really.

1. I'm a ridiculously huge hoarder, in real life and game. In real life its mostly books and television box sets but in games its anything from a bent tin can to a really powerful weapon that I'll probably never use...

2. A long with reading also watch way too many television series, I seriously can't get enough. At the moment I'm currently obsessing over Game of Thrones, Supernatural, Dexter and anything Whedon related.

3. Even though I am a huge Dr Who fan, I have was a little disappointed with last season so I'm really hoping this one will pick up and we may even see an end of Matt Smith. (Sorry I'm a Tennant girl).

4. I own two west highland terriers and two yellow bellied turtles. But I don't want to stop there, I also want kittens, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rats, corgi's and husky's.

5. I love reading comics and graphic novels as well as books, the art work is fantastic!

6. I'm also an avid gamer and if any of you happen to have a steam account feel free to add me as a friend - captain_biscuits

7. I live in a bubble. I really do, I don't know anything about anyone. (I actually just got given a good example, a friend linked me to a cover of an Adele song and I was like I like this but who is Adele, apparently she's won like loads of awards or stuff? No idea)

1. Patricia at Book Exhibitionism - A fantastic book blogger and she's really lovely to speak too!

2. Briane and Cimmaron at Talk Supe - Every book they review and read I just want to get my hands on.

3. Brianna, J9 and Rhee and The Book Vixen - One of three blogs that I read before I started my own book blog and finally encouraged me to start my own book blog

4. Lorenna at April Fool Romance - Not a book blog for one, but we have mutual friends and I love the content of hers.

5. Kimba at Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer - I just love her blog to pieces and she watches all the same shows that I love too.

6. Shawna Lemay at Calm Things - An author and photographer, I love her photography work and think its beautiful and calming.

7. Nicola at A Pocket Full of Books - I love her reviews, range of books and her blog in general.

8. Carolyn, Laura, Rebecca, Vickie and Gemma at Book Chick City - Another one of three blogs that I read before I started my own book blog and finally encouraged to start my own, I swear the blog grows its content and reviewers every day :')

9. Ella at Read Into Hiding - Have you ever seen such a pretty layout and image for every single post? Ah I love it, Ella's is a blog I stumbled onto recently.

10. Jenny at Chocolate Chunky Munkie - I love her content and layout too, and she's introduced me too a few books that I am dying to read.

11.Loretta at Between the Pages - Purple is my all time favourite colour and her theme drew me in but I stayed for the content, love it.

12. Isalys and Vanessae at Book Soulmates - I love the content I read here, truly wonderful

13. Pretty Books (tumblr) - Pretty Books is the tumblr blog that made me start Books and Tea, the work she shares and her reviews are fab.

14. Bout of Books - This is entirely for a week long read-a-thon that I found out about through a friends post about it but I am dying for it to start and look forward to the whole idea behind it and the content.

and of course

15. Amanda and Kelly at On a Book Bender - Obviously I found out about this blog through the previous blog but I am sticking around for their work, its beautiful.
