How exciting...award time!!!

Being a brand spanking new addition to this wonderful world of book blogging, I'm so happy to have received two awards already!!! As a newbie, for me this is just as good being nominated for a BBAW award :)

The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.

Thanks to Sara at I'm speechless, lol. I'm late on passing this along as I was on holidays last week, hopefully the wrath of the zombies has some kind of a grace period!

My nominees:


Enjoy everyone!

and now for the 2nd award:

The Lemonade Award is a feel good award that shows great attitude or gratitude. Here are the rules for accepting this award:

- Put the Lemonade Award logo on your blog or post.

-Link your nominees within your post.

-Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

-Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award.

Thanks to Lisa over at How sweet! (or is it sour??? lol)

I want to pass this onto Lezlie at who not only has one amazing blog, she is super kind :) Thanks so much for being one of the 1st bloggers to make me feel welcome!


  1. Thank you so much, Mel! That's so nice! And I'm glad I could make you feel at home. It has been my pleasure!


  2. The chickens don't count when you're on vacation. They start counting when you get back : )

  3. Sara ~ Phew!

    Lezlie & Jenny ~ you're welcome :)

  4. Congrats on your awards. Looks like we are reading some of the same books. I have Bending Toward the Sun and Playing House both coming up!

  5. Hi Deb! Yes, it sure does..looking forward to seeing your reviews as well as other books you pick :)

    Feel free to send me a link to reviews we have in common & I'll add it to my post.

    Hope to read more from ya!

  6. A wise friend of mine once said "If life gives you lemons, stick 'em in your bra and make bigger boobs", but I think the Lemonade Award is an equally good use for lemons! Congrats!

    Also, I keep hearing about this Zombie apocolypse and now I see here it involves chickens!! What a fowl thought! (I'm done with the bad puns, you can relax)

    Well done for a newbie(though perhaps when can start calling ourselves bloggin' toddlers?) ;-)
