Liebster Blog Award

I was extremely touched and honoured to discover that Midnight Reads had chosen me as one of 5 blogs they wanted to highlight. It's the first recognition I've had a blogger and it means a lot to me. So of course,  as well as giving my sincere thanks, I must carry on the award and allow someone else to feel that way, too.

The Goal of the award is to spotlight up and coming bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers. The rules of the award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.

2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.

5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!

The 5 blogs I want to award are:

Thoughts at One in the Morning: I had to pick this blog as it's so close to being ineligible! And I did not want to miss the opportunity to say that it is one of my go-to blogs; I love chatting with Jessica in the comments and I hope to one day read her published works.

Ninja Girl Reads: I was sure Ninja Girl had to have received this award before, but I checked her posts and although she's received others, not this one. I love everything about her blog: just the fact that she calls herself Ninja Girl makes me smile and she is so enthusiastic about books, her blog as a whole can cheer me up on the worst day.

Book Crook Liza: A gorgeous-looking blog. I've also found that Liza reads a lot of the same books as me, at similar times, so I'm always able to comment on her reviews. Partly because she's lived all over the world, she offers an unique perspective on books.

Baggins's Book Blabber: Everyone should see the design on this blog; it is so pretty and cute. Baggins has also been very generous with giveaways; having at least one a month and sometimes more.

Browsing Bookshelves: I love that she reviews a mix of YA and adult books, as I need the variety. Her reviews are smart and it's clear she knows a lot about books.

Those are my choices: I hope anyone who stops by this blog will visit them, too and that they will continue on with this award, spreading the love to other blogs!


  1. Congrats TG! Awards are so much fun and a nice surprise to learn that your blog means something to someone else too :)

  2. Congratulations TG! You deserve the recognition.

  3. You are so sweet! And you just made me realize I need to post this soon, I'm glad Follow Friday didn't break my 200 before this post. ^_^

  4. Thank you so much!! I was heading towards a book blogging slump and you totally gave me motivation to keep going! :) I appreciate it so much!

  5. Thanks for the congratulations, Lan and Che!

    Natalie and Jessica - you're welcome and I meant every word I wrote. Thank you for being fab bloggers!

  6. Congrats!!! And thank you so much for thinking of me :D I'm so glad that my blog can cheer you up; that's the best compliment anyone could give. I love these awards and the spirit in which they're given. I've gotta get to work on a post for this!
    Thanks so much again, and I hope you're having a great week (you just made mine ;))
