The past few days…

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have been MIA for the past few days.

Monday, I had a migraine and was unable to look at a computer screen for too long. However I did post this week’s poem game that morning, before I laid back down. Have you all guessed the poet or the poem’s title, yet? Just head over to Facebook to see this week’s poem, then enter your answer into the Rafflecopter entry form. (Which can be found on Facebook or on the Big Giveaway page here.

Tuesday was my Grandmother’s birthday and try as I might, no words could be shared with you to explain that day. As you all know she and my Mom created the obsessed reader that I am today. I think about her everyday and dedicate this website in her honor. It thrilled me to see that the Ariesgrl Book Reviews Facebook page reached another milestone on Tuesday. 300 Likes!!! Somehow, I think my grandmother gave me that present on her birthday. Either way, thank you all for making Tuesday even more special to me. You all are amazing!

This brings me to yesterday… Yesterday I had my computer booted up and I was ready to make progress on some posts that I wanted to share with all of you. Instead I spent the day, wrapped around my dog. Ozzy had a seizure yesterday morning and needed to be comforted and kept relaxed throughout the day today. So his brother, Jagger, and I made sure we kept him reassured and comfortable all through the day and night. My little guy has been through so much these past few months, but he is a trooper. His brother, always the protector, did an excellent job of taking care of him yesterday and is currently curled up with him under the blanket. I love my boys!

Last night I tried to log on and type up a quick post letting you all know I would be on here today, but every time I tried to log on, the server was updating… So… I had to wait until this morning. Oh well.

First item on today’s agenda is this: I still have not heard from the winner of the Rockapocalypse giveaway. Since I have not been able to get on here over the past few days, I will allow another 24 hour period to hear from the winner. Wanda Green-Swafford, you won! Please contact me before 11:59am EDT on Friday, June 21, 2013, to claim your prize. If I do not hear from you, before this new deadline, I will draw another name tomorrow at 1pm EDT. Thank you again to all you participated in the A Year in Review #3 giveaway.

On the other hand, A Year in Review #4 is live. So far, only three people have entered to win. If you like Greek Mythology, you will want to check out this week’s giveaway. Just head over to that post and leave a comment for your chance to an ecopy of author, Luciana Cavallaro‘s latest book! Contest ends on Friday, June 21, 2013 at 11:59pm EDT.

This week’s Twitter character description is still live. (This week’s description is dedicated in honor of my Grandmother.) Check out the status update on Twitter and enter the character’s name in the Rafflecopter entry form under the Big Giveaway page.

That is all from me for right now. I will be back later today with more info for you guys. Thank you all again for your continued support. You guys are amazing!!!

Have a wonderful day!

A Big Thanks and a Few Awards

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed my last review. Right now I just wanted to take some time and say thank you. Thanks to each of you the List has continued to grow. Also as of today, this site has had over 6,500 all time views. WOW! Thank you all so much. As for the Other Sites, Facebook has a total of 20 likes and Twitter has 40 followers. You all are amazing and I can’t thank you enough for taking a chance on me and supporting me and my dreams. I hope that I am returning that favor by providing you with my honest reviews, but most of all I hope each of you have found some new-to-you-turned-favorite authors to support.

A few weeks ago, I was nominated for some awards by author, Emily Guido. I am so honored and humbled to accept these awards. It truly means the world to me that she thought to  nominate me. Thank you.

So what are these awards? Well…

Blog of the Year Award banner 600reality-blog-awardvery-inspiring-blogger-award

Wow! I am so shocked and very grateful thank you, Emily.

Now I am not sure what the rules are for each of these awards, so I am going to accept them with some random facts about me and list a few of the blogs that truly deserve these blogs! (Sound good to you?) Okay here we go:

Random Facts:

1. Today is the first day of NHL playing again, so I have a game on in the background. I despise both teams, but I it is nice to see the puck and the ice again.

2. My currently reading stack is at 6. Three of these books I started last year, but since I created this blog, I haven’t finished them. So they are in random rooms in my house and I read a little from them each month. (By little, I mean a page or two. Kind of annoying and not how I normally read, therefore they get a bit ignored.)

3. I have a calendar marking the days of the next book releases of both Dan Brown and Rick Riordan. (I call this eclectic taste. Which allows for all of the fabulous genres listed on here.)

4. I am still not really sure ‘how-to-blog.’

5. January 26, 2013 will mark one year, since I became a full time 24/7 caregiver.

Deserving blogs and bloggers:

Andrea Kelly

Amanda Bretz

Sarah Solmonson

Dana Zalesky

Cayley School Book Fairy

These are just a few of the blogs that I follow. I wish I could nominate you all. Know that for me, you are all winners and amazing people. Thank you all again for your support.

I hope each of you have a wonderful day!

Enjoy!
