I've been given two awards! :)

Wow!!! I am honoured and extremely happy to have been given TWO awards recently!

The first was the 'Lovely Blog Award' which was given to me by the lovely Eileen from ***Singing and Reading in the Rain***

 The rules for this award are...

1. Link back to the person that bestowed the award upon you.
2. Follow the person that bestowed the award upon you.
3. Pass along to 15 Lovely Bloggers!

I want to shout out a massive thank you to Eileen for my first ever blogging award! And also compliment her on her own 'lovely blog'! down to the business of picking out 15 lovely blogs to pass the award on to! (With all the AMAZING blogs out there how ever will I choose?)

Okay, although these are just some of the wonderful blogs out there, here are the blogs I would like to pass the 'One Lovely Blog' award on to...

Sonia @ The Story Queen 
Leanna @ Daisy Chain Book Reviews
Celine @ Forget-Me-Not
Emma @ Book Angel Booktopia
Cicely @ Cicely Loves Books
Lisa @ Read Me Bookmark Me Love Me
Sophie @ So Many Books, So Little Time
Kirsty @ The Overflowing Library
Leanne @ District YA
Sarah @ Miss Page-Turner's City of Books 
Lynsey @ Narratively Speaking
Carly @ Writing From The Tub
Jillian @ Random Ramblings
Ezmirelda @ P A R A F A N T A S Y
Cialina @ Muggle-Born

I just want to say to all you guys that I think your blogs are amazing!
And to everybody else who I couldn't list because I was limited to only 15, congratulations on all your lovely blogs too! :D

Now the second award that I have been given is the Liebster Blog Award, from Heather from Into the Cuckoo's Nest!

The Liebster Blog Award is an award for bloggers with less than 200 followers, and its aim is to help these blogs be found by others in the blogosphere.

The 'rules' for this one are...
  1.  Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
  2. Nominate up to five others for the award.
  3. Let them know via comment on their blog (or you can send them a tweet!)
  4. Post the award on your blog.
  5. (This fifth rule was added by Geeky Tendencies via inspirenordic)...Follow my blog and at least consider signing up for the A to Z Challenge. It is a great way to find new and interesting blogs, it helps people find your blog and helps you meet new bloggers. Who knows? You might reach the 200 follower mark!
Thank you SO MUCH for thinking of me for this award, Heather!
Here are the blogs I would like to nominate for the Liebster Blog Award...

Debbie @ Forever Reading
Ria @ The Beaucoup Review
Hannah @ The Girl In A Cafe
Kel @ EnchantedBooks
Mackenzie @ Oh, For the Love of Books!

Good luck with reaching (and surpassing) the 200 follower mark, guys! :D
So, thanks again to Eileen and Heather, and congrats to all of my winners! You deserve it! :)
