I am always surprised when someone presents me with an award, and I'm not ashamed to admit that it makes me feel all warm & fuzzy when someone thinks of me! Received two lovely awards awhile back and while I'm embarrassed that it took me so long, I'd would like to share the love:

Humane AwardI received the Humane Award from GMR over at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers. She has a great blog with excellent reviews, so be sure to head on over and check it out!

This award is to honor certain bloggers that are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn't for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily (or close to) basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendship through the blog world. I'm supposed to nominate 10 bloggers that I feel deserve the Humane Award, but I've passed this award along at least twice before, so would like to open this to anyone reading this post. Enjoy!

One Lovely Blog award I received this lovely award from both In The Hammock and The Sweet BonjourIn The Hammock is a gorgeous blog, with book reviews and fun memes! The Sweet Bonjour mainly reviews YA books, but also takes part in some memes and has several author interviews under her belt as well! They are both very cute blogs with great content, so be sure to stop by and say hello!

So here are the rules: Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I'd like to pass this award along to:

Caroline at One Book Away From Heaven

SusiSunshine at The Geeky Bookworm

GMR at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers

Yunaleska at Nayu's Reading Corner

Elie at Ellz Reads

Dannie at Opinionated Me

Tena at Crazy Book Slut

Steph at Steph the Bookworm

Wendy at The Book Lush

Shannon at Book Dreaming

Kathy at Inside of a Dog

Booknerds Are Pretty Too

Kate at Midnight Book Girl

Read Now Sleep Later

Good Books and Good Wine

Some of these are new blogs and some of them have been around for awhile, but are new to me. All of them have interesting posts that are well worth a look! I've received a few other awards that I need to acknowledge but rather than waiting another month, decided to go ahead and post these. I really appreciate it when someone thinks of me, but I'm a horrible procrastinator! *L*
