I have been very fortunate to receive two awards from two of my favourite bloggers lately.

The first is The Sisterhood Award from Iliana at Bookgirl's Nightstand - thank you so much Iliana!

I would like to pass on The Sisterhood Award to bloggers I feel a reading connection with (there are so many of course but I will restrain myself!). My Sisterhood awards go to:

1. Kiss A Cloud - Not only have I had some wonderful reading recommendations from Claire but her blog is always letting me in on great books ideas - thanks Claire!

2. Farm Lane Books - we seem to share similar reading tastes and this blog is always putting forward thoughtful reading and reading related ideas.

3. MariReads - I love Mari's blog and I regularly pop over there to see what she is reading next.

4. The Evening Reader - this is a relatively new blog find for me but I am loving it already. The posts on Gone With The Wind has me hooked and I knew we were going to have similar reading tastes!

5. Urban Bachelorette - Amanda is another blogger I have discovered fairly recently but I am loving reading through her posts and have found we share a lot of the same reading tastes.

My second award was from Farm Lane Books and it was The Zombie Chicken Award! I must admit this one took me a little by surprise (I don't even like chickens!!) but once I read the description of the award I felt very honoured:

“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, my Zombie Chicken Awards go to:

1. Thyme For Tea - Even in the face of zombie chickens I know Tamara would still be producing an interesting and enlightening blog!

2. Trish's Reading Nook - As with Tamara I know Trish will always have high quality posts - definitely excellence being displayed for me.

3. Little Breeze - there is definitely grace, persistence and excellence over at Megan's blog.

4. Books and Cooks - anyone who can cook and has great reading recommendations deserves a zombie chicken I think!

5. Laura's Reading Reflections - for grace, persistence and excellence.

Tamara said...

Thanks Karen. A Zombie Chicken Eclipse? Bring it on I say! That'd make for some interesting times. I'm not sure I've read about it the trauma literature though. But seriously, thanks again for your encouraging words.

Hi Tamara - maybe it's a term we need to bring into our professional world!!
