Blogger Recognition Award(February ’17)


I would like to say a huge thank you to Jacqueline Leech at and Lauren Watkins at for nominating me for this award.  Please check out their blogs.  I am so excited to have been nominated especially as you all know I am fairly new to the blogging scene.


I started this blog last May to give me a purpose in life.  I have had Spondylosis for over ten years which has left me unable to work and near enough housebound.  Books have been my saviour  during this time, I can escape from the pain for a while,  I can’t read everyday but  try to read was often as I can.  The blog was the next progression and I have loved sharing my book reviews with everyone.  I never started out to get a lot of followers or recognition, I just did it for me, to give me a bit of structure. I love peoples passion for books and that they share this with others.  Thank you to all who have followed me and become my Facebook friends.

It feels strange giving advice to new bloggers when I still feel I am still a beginner but the one thing I have learned is that it is Ok to say no.  At first I said yes to every blog tour and found that I was getting swamped.  It is the same with NetGalley, don’t request too many books at once.  Most of all enjoy it, and join Facebook groups for bloggers and readers as you will meet a lot of likeminded people and get a lot of help and support.

Here are the fifteen bloggers that I nominate for this award.

1.  Jacqueline Leech

Hi, I am an avid reader and have been all my life. I put it down to being an only child and having a teacher for a mum. The idea of this blog is to share my passion for reading and review new and upcoming books as well as those that may have been out for several years.
I also review on Twitter @Bookliterat
