Feeling the love and VOTE

On Saturday I had a record seventeen comments for one post (not counting my comments) and I'm feeling the love! I adore comments. They're like my own personal brand of heroin.

(I can't believe I just quoted that ...)

For those of you who were AWOL from the internet on Saturday, the part of Ellie Linton in the film adaptation of Tomorrow, When the War Began has been cast! Full details here.

Here's some more love. I've received these awards recently. THANK YOU! I'm going to pass each on to three bloggers that have caught my fancy recently.

I got the coveted Zombie Chicken Award from Lauren at I was a teenage book geek.

And I'm passing it on to:
1. Kelly at YAnnabe
2. Eleni at La Femme Readers
3. Kristen at Bookworming in the 21st Century

I got a very lady-like Kreativ Blogger award from Steph at Hey! Teenager of the Year

And I'm passing it on to:
1. Suzie at Confessions of a Wandering Heart
2. Mary at The Sweet Bookshelf
3. Ravenous Reader

And I got the I Love Your Blog Award from The Magic Thingamajig. I ALMOST (but not quite) forgive him for calling my lovely tartan dress "flannel".

This one's going to:
1. Tina at Fantastic Book Review
2. ihatewheat at The Dairi Burger
3. Ashley at The Book Obsession

There's two things you should be voting for right now: the BBAW Awards, and 101 of the Best Fantasy Books. For the latter I went with Obernewtyn by Isobelle Carmody, Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klaus, and a new love, the Study books by Snyder.

But hurry! Because voting closes on the 12th for the BBAW Awards and the 14th for 101 of the Best Fantasy Books.

I'm sure there was something else I wanted to mention too but it's just slipped my mind`...

Oh yes I remember now ...


Tomorrow: My review of The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness!
