Long Overdue Awards

Hey Followers!

I haven't done any awards in AGES. I know this is bad, because I've received two. So here I start! The lovely Maggie Desmond-O'Brien gave me this award.


1. My favourite thing in the entire world is writing. It is frustrating and I sometimes become ridiculously insecure but I adore my characters and stories. There is something so RIGHT about writing for me. It just makes sense. I couldn't live without it.

2. My mom. Yeah yeah, I know, I'm a big sap. But my mom is amazing and she's kept me almost sane for as long as I can remember.

3. Reading, of course! I love escaping into new worlds and characters. I love picking apart plots and characters and prose and narration. The community around reading has made me love reading more than ever.

4. My friends. They're crazy and hilarious, and some provide me some really attractive tumblr posts. So I am a FAN of them. I'm quite fond of humans as a whole. My friends are my favourite humans.

5. My kitty. When I get older, I am going to be a writer/YA librarian, but mostly I will be a cat lady. My kitty Clara is this super sassy animal who loves to cuddle and herd me into things. Yeah, true story.

6. Fall and spring. I love the in between seasons.

7. My cootie catcher necklace. There's two stories around it. Ask me about it sometime. It's definitely my most prized possession. Yes, that's including my Gemma Doyle books.

8. Ice cream. NOM NOM.

9. Musicals. I love musicals. You can tell I am in a good mood if I go around my house singing a combo of Spring Awakening, Wicked and Rent.

10. Dancing. I don't do it as often as I would like. But I adore dancing.

Now here are the ten people I give this award to! Although I bet you all have it already anyways.

1. Bookworming in the 21st Century
2. Book Crazy
3. Chick Lit Teens
4. Cornucopia of Reviews
5. Good Books and Good Wine
