Versatile Blogger Award

Here’s something that hasn’t happened in a while! I got nominated for a blogging award! The lovely Holly over at Nut Free Nerd nominated me, and I couldn’t be more grateful. This actually comes at an interesting time for me. I’m going on a blogging hiatus for a while. Well, from book reviewing. I may still post rants from time to time. This is because I’m rereading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Currently, there are eight novels in this series, with a ninth on the way, and each of them run at over 700 pages. and one of them is over 1000! So, I won’t be reading anything new for a while. I hope you guys don’t miss me too much (I’m so modest, aren’t I? :-P)
Anyways, enough about my reading life, on with the award!

  1. Show the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the person that has nominated you.
  3. Share 7 different facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate a number of blogs of your choice.
  5. Link your nominees and let them know they are nominated.

So, without further ado, here are those seven facts about me, myself, and I:

1. I have moved three times in the past 12 months. But only to two different places.
2. I’ve just started a second Bachelor’s Degree. I just have a bit of paperwork to fill out, because I actually did at least a year’s worth of this degree in 2014.
3. I’m addicted to caffeine. To the point where, if I don’t have caffeine first thing in the morning, I get a wicked headache that can set off my sinuses. Nurofen does NOT help.
4. This week is my birthday week! I have birthday celebrations with my family tomorrow, my actual birthday on Wednesday, and my birthday party (my first one in eight years) on Saturday night! I haven’t been this excited for my birthday in a while.
5. Unlike some of my other readerly friends, I can only read one book at a time. I get the story lines crossed if I read more than one book. Which makes for really awkward book discussions.
6. I have an Avengers sunshield for my car. It goes really well with the Baymax sticker on my driver’s side door.
7. I currently have a trucker’s tan. Because my car’s air-conditioning  doesn’t work, I have to drive with my windows down. And it’s currently summer here in Australia. So, lo and behold, truckers’ tan!

So that’s me! And now, for my turn to make some nominations for this award:

Becky @ Blogs-Of-A-Bookaholic

Engie @ Musings From Neville’s Navel

Mahima @ allthingswordy

Well, guys, I will see you again in a few months! Take care of yourselves.

N.B. I am in no way creative enough to make these section headings. I’ve borrowed them from the talented Holly at Nut Free Nerd. If you click on any of those gorgeous headers, you’ll be taken to her blog. And you should definitely do that, because Holly’s blog is amazing!


About Bec Graham

Bec Graham, 24, was born on the wrong continent. Everything from her burns-like-paper skin tone to her inability to cope with the slightest hint of a hot day suggests she should have been born under the gloomy skies and mild sun of the UK. She hopes writing will get her to her rightful home one day. Failing that, she scans the skies for a spinning blue police box, hoping to catch a lift back to the motherland.

    awww thanks! 🙂 I’m so glad you did posted this award! If you don’t mind me asking, what are your two BA degrees in? It’s super impressive that you’re getting two of them!

    • Bec Graham says:

      Oh, not at all! I actually have a Bachelor’s in Creative and Professional Writing! At the moment, though, I’m studying Psychology. One day I wanna combine the two and have a practice doing Creative Writing As Therapy. But that’s a long way off!
      Thanks so much! I do love to learn 😊

  2. Happy almost Birthday! Hope you have a good one, and enjoy your Outlander reread.

    Thanks for the nomination. 🙂

    Ah your Birthday week sounds like it will be a smash! Hope you have tons and tons of fun! 😀
    Thanks for nominating me for the award, I feel incredibly chuffed.

  4. Deborah says:

    Happy belated birthday Bec!!! I hope you had a nice day (and week!).

    Bummer about the moves, though moving does mean you get to cull a lot of stuff. Regularly.

    And good luck with the study! Hope you get the exemptions you were hoping for to save you some time, effort and money!!!

    • Bec Graham says:

      Thanks Deborah!! It was an amazing week. And I did get rid of a lot of stuff. It was actually a little cleansing.
      Study is going well so far! It’s good 🙂 I love it

  5. Omggg good luck on your second degree! That sounds really intense. 😀 Go you!

    And I hope you’ve been having an extraordinary birthday week! Huzzah for your birth anniversary!
