Award Time!

I have a couple of new awards that I need to celebrate and pass on!

The Bodacious Award was given to me by Aleksandra at Aleksandra's Corner.  Thanks so much Aleksandra!!
Here is how this award works:
If you are given this award you must first accept it by leaving a comment on the post you were nominated on. Then copy and paste the post and add it to your own blog. Make a list of the last 5 books you read and pass the award on to 5 other bloggers (no backsies!). Please also identify the blog from which you got the award and don't forget to tell them they have a blog award! 
The last 5 books I read:
  1. Arson by Estevan Vega
  2. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
  3. The Emerald Talisman by Brenda Pandos
  4. Lover Mine by JR Ward
  5. Hex Hall by Rachel Ward
I nominate the following blogs for this award:
  1. Eleni @ La Femme Readers
  2. Elie @ Ellz Readz
  3. Tizrah @ The Compulsive Reader
  4. The Gang @ Teens Read and Write
  5. Yan @ Books By Their Cover

The second award I received was The Versatile Blogger Award! This was given to me by Jessica @ A Fanatics Book Blog.  Thanks so much Jessica!

The Rules for the award are:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (in no particular order…)
4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

  5. I blow my book budget within 2 days of payday (every month!!)
