I received this award from Beth Fish Reads and Books and Movies. Thanks! This award comes with a meme in which you're supposed to list 7 of your favorite things, and pass this award along to 7 other bloggers.

1. Charlee, my Keeshond
2. Bookmarks of all shapes and sizes
3. Books that make me laugh out loud in public
4. Creative writing

I received the Zombie Chicken Award from Rebecca at Lost in Books, which says:

The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.

So, here are my five awardees:

1. My Friend Amy
2. Angieville
3. Literary Escapism
4. The Bookworm
5. Bookgirl's Nightstand

I received the Super Comments Award from Book Chick City. I'm glad that she enjoys my comments because I love leaving them.

Here are my five selections:

1. Bermuda Onion
2. You've Gotta Read This!!
3. Find Your Next Book Here
4. The Literate Housewife Review
5. The Eclectic Reader

I also recently received the Honest Scrap Award from Missy's Book Nook. This award requires me to pass it along to seven bloggers and then list 10 honest things about myself. Here are my awardees:

1. The Book Smugglers
2. Reading Adventures
3. The Trillionth Page
4. Debbie's World of Books
5. Luxury Reading
6. Trish's Reading Nook
7. Ramya's Bookshelf

Ten honest things about me:

1. I'm very passionate about politics and debate.
2. I love when people take my advice about reading great books.
3. I hate when my husband leaves his clothes on the bedroom floor when the hamper is just a few more steps.
4. Because I have high standards for myself, I expect everyone to follow them.
5. I still have a hot temper, but I've learned to tame it some.
6. I'm very protective of my purse and prefer people ask permission before they touch it.
7. I hate wearing reading glasses because they make me feel old.
8. Sometimes I wish my reading habits would rub off on my husband.
9. I tend to bite off more than I can chew, but still manage to finish it all.
10. I really hate wearing shoes and socks.

I think that's all the awards I've received recently. Enjoy them and continue to celebrate book bloggers.

Well aren't you a little Santy Clause Serena? Those are a load of awards, each deserved I might add. Thank you so much for the Super Commenter award! I'll make sure I pass along the good Karma soon! And congrats to everyone else. That is a fine list of bloggers!

Anna said...


I don't think I know anyone who likes their purse being touched without permission. And be thankful you only have reading glasses. I hate wearing them 'round the clock. LOL

Congratulations on all of your awards! I'm not crazy about shoes and socks, except when it's cold - then I want my slippers. Thanks for thinking of me on this dreary Friday morning.

Beth F said...

Wow!!! Congrats on your awards.

Great list of blogs there, and congrats to you and your picks!

Jo-Jo said...

Congrats on all of your awards Serena! The shoes and socks made me laugh because if I could wear my Birkenstocks all year long I would be one happy camper!

Jeane said...

Congrats on all your awards! That's a lot of great blogs you've listed- some I don't recognize, so I'm off to visit!

Jeannie said...

Congrats on all of the awards, Serena. It came as no shock to see that you received so many.

I love the "Ten Honest Things" and feel I know you a little better. :D

Kristie said...

Congrats on all of the awards! I agree with a lot of your truths... I don't understand why my husband can't lift the wicker cover of my laundry basket to throw his clothes in. I also wish my reading habits would rub off my hubby as well and am also passioniate about politics. Congrats again!

Congratulations on all of the goodies!

The first thing I do when I walk in the house is take of my shoes. Although I will also confess to having a closet full of shoes. :-)

Serena said...

Jo-Jo: I'd really like to live in a place where I could be barefoot or wear sandals year round!

Jeane: My google reader is out of control and I wanted to make sure I mentioned some of my recent blog discoveries.

Jeannie: I hope you still like me after all that honesty! LOL
Kristie: Looks like we have a little bit in common. I don't get husbands sometimes.

Softdrink: I have the same problem...closet full of shoes and walking around barefoot the minute I walk in the house.

Jenners said...

Thanks for thinking of me!!! And I loved your honest scrap -- I totally share your #8!

Trish said...

First of all congrats on all the awards Serena! I think you and Anna are fierce competitors for the most awarded gals in the blogosphere! :) Second, thanks for the Honest Scrap. I'll admit I almost missed the mention as I haven't been paying much attention to my reader lately. Glad I scrolled through instead of just hitting "mark all"! Anyway, thank you again.
