The Versatile Blogger Award and One Lovely Blog Award!

I've received The Versatile Blogger Award from Danya at A Tapestry of Words and the One Lovely Blog Award from both Rummanah from Books in the Spotlight and Jennifer at An Abundance of Books! Thanks so much ladies!
You should all go over and check these awesome blogs out, they're ones I read and try to comment on regularly. Jennifer is currently having a Percy Jackson giveaway, be sure to sign up for it!

Before I go on to the rules for the awards, I have to apologize to these lovely ladies, because it's been a month since I received the awards and I should have passed them on ages ago. I'm deeply ashamed of myself!

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 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
4. Versatile Blogger Award only: Share 7 things about yourself.

As for those 7 things:
1. Some of you know this already, but I'm also part of another blog: The Broke and the Bookish, which is a collaboration of college students all part of the College Students Group on Goodreads.
2. I love ARC's and it's frustrating I can hardly ever get my hands on them, because of my living in Holland and the huge amount of money it costs to send something here!
3. I have a soft spot for all things cute and cuddly, including my boyfriend :)
4. I'm studying medicine, but I hate going to the doctor myself and I always self-diagnose before I go. Which is probably really annoying to the doctor (sorry!).
5. I speak Dutch, English, French, German and a little Latin, I wish I could speak Chinese.
6. I've been to London last year and it was so amazing! I'm a bit of an anglophile and love reading about Queen Elizabeth (I visited the Tower while in London and almost died of happiness). I can't wait to go back there again!
7. Nobody I know in real life reads as much as I do. I'm so happy to have found first Goodreads and then all these lovely book blogs! It's good to know there are other people like me out there :)

Now, I'm going to cheat a little and send these two awards out together to 15 amazing bloggers (because else I'd have to list 45, I don't think I even follow 45 blogs).
So here they are, in no particular order:

Fresh off the Shelf
Spine Creases
The Perpetual Page Turner
The Overflowing Library
Tedious and Brief
A Girl, Books and Other Things
English Major's Junk Food
Midnight Bloom Reads
Overused Parentheses
Tahleen's Mixed-Up Files
Eating YA Books
Spine Creases
Supernatural Snark
Tangled Up in Blue
Tales and Treats

And because I can't say it enough: thanks again to Danya, Jennifer and Rummanah!


  1. Oh my gosh thank you! I'm so glad you think enough of my blog to give me this award:) And congrats to you for receiving them both!

  2. You are most welcome, Daisy! Hope you're having a great weekend. Happy Reading!

  3. Congrats on the awards Daisy, and thanks so much for passing them along to me! :)

  4. No problem Daisy! Happy to hear you enjoy stopping by my blog :) I also loathe going to the doctor and like to self-diagnose before I go (even though I'm not a med student!)

  5. Vielen Dank!!! :D My first awards!

    I had no idea you were in the Netherlands! Are you Dutch then or are you just there for school?

    Sadly my German has deteriorated. :( I do need to find people to talk to in it. I haven't used it in four years. :(

  6. I'm completely Dutch, born and raised :) My German has probably detoriated as well, I haven't used it in a while, but they teach it in high school here.
