So first off this week, I won some books! (I know, it’s crazy huh?) I won a copy of Love at First Sight by Lori Wilde and Sweet Salt Air by Barbara Delinsky on Goodreads! I also recieved access on NetGalley to The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa and it’s sequal, The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa. So far I’m loving the series and can’t wait to get through both books.
Also, this morning I was notified that I’ve been nominated for the Beautiful Bloggger Award:
by the wonderful slepsnor / Charles Yallowitz of Legends of Windmere. Honestly, I have no idea what the award is given out for, but I’m honored nonetheless. Now, I’m smart enough to notice that there’s been a lot of these awards floating around lately and it seems there’s always some sort of rules that go along with it, like: “Nominate 15 other people”, “tell us something about you” etc. However *pats slepsnor on the back* no rules were posted where I was nominated *grins* so I’m going to assume that I’m allowed to end the chain-letter that is this award at least in the vicinity of my wayward blog. First of all, I’m not sure I even know 15 bloggers to nominate, two, I’m lazy and half asleep right now.. it’s only 8 AM and I haven’t had coffee, and 3, you have to know there’s probably hundreds (if not thousands) of this particular award going around right now if even a handful of people have already nominated 15 people each. I’ll be happy to be the one child out who chooses to say thank you, and bow out.
And my last topic of the day: I will probably not be posting much this week (even though I already really want to post some book reviews for the books I haven’t even finished yet). I’ve picked up a couple of new art commissions over on DeviantART (http://darlingmionette.deviantart.com – plug!), that are going to keep me pretty busy this week. I have a 4-person sketch I need to start working on today, and after that a fully-painted piece. I’m happy for the work, and the pay, since art is my income, but I’m already pouting over the fact that I won’t have much time to read or write this week. Combine that with the fantastic allergies I’ve had the last couple days which are making hard to function, and I can already tell this is going to be a really long week.
