Hush, Hush contest winner, BBAW, and tons of Awards

Alright, I usually am VERY prompt about ending contests. But not today. I was busy getting my wedding dress fitted, running errands, having lunch with a friend, and then seeing a movie with my fiance - we saw Inglorious Basterds - which was AMAZING! I was.. however.. surprised by the amount of old couples out to see it. I know it has the same title as an older movie, but supposedly is NOT a remake. *shrugs* I've never seen the other one.

Anyways, so I drew a winner just now and let her know. So I figured I'd let you guys know!

#1017 Ju!

Congrats to Ju! I've sent you an email asking for your address! :-D.

Next topic! I want to thank EVERYONE who even thought of nominated or did nominate me for the BBAW awards. I was nominated in FIVE - I know, amazing right? - categories. Best New Blogger, Best YA Book Blogger, Best Writing, Best Commentor, and Most Prolific.

Thanks guys!

Okay, now I have been VERY bad about accepting awards lately. I actually have been given 8 or 9 different awards by various bloggers. Some are duplicates and some are new. So I'm going to start with the new ones first and then go to the ones I've technically already gotten - which, I really don't mind getting again.

One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you to The Neverending Shelf and Tynga's Urban Fantasy Reviews for nominating me!

These are the rules:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2. Pass the award to other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

My nominees:
Book Dragon's Lair
Books and Literature for Teens
Twin Pigeon
Tales of Whimsy
Running for Fiction
A Place for Wicked Good Books
The Undercover Book Lover (not really)

Bingo's Beautiful Award

Thank you to The Eclectic Reader for nominating me for this award!

This award was started by Bookin With BINGO and here are the rules:

This "B-I-N-G-O" BEAUTIFUL BLOG AWARD means that this blog is...

B: Beautiful
I: Informative
N: Neighborly
G: Gorgeous
O: Outstanding

Please look carefully at as many blogs as you can to find the top FIVE blogs that YOU think also exemplify these standards and pass it along to them. Please don't break this chain of FIVE! If you are someone who doesn't want awards or doesn't pass them on, please tell the person who is giving it so they can share it with someone who would want it. Thank you. Also, link your award to the person who gave it to you so when people link on the person's name or blog name, it will take them there to see that person's BINGO-RIFFIC BLOG.

My nominees:
A Flight of Minds
The Neverending Shelf
Good Books & Good Wine
Mrs. Magoo Reads
The Book Explorer

Alright. That was hard.. really, always is.
