Hello everybody! To everyone in the eastern USA, I hope you are surviving our snowpocalypse and to everybody else, the same applies for Tuesday.

2. Let the bloggers know that you've nominated them.

3. Share 10 random facts about yourself.

4. Thank the blogger who nominated you.

5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your post.

Alright...time for the "Getting to Know You" section of this...

  1. I'm absolutely terrified of spiders, despite being in the environmental world. I moved out of my room for 3 months because I had found what I thought were two brown recluse spiders in my bed.
  2. I won an international award for my photography portfolio in high school. I also used to write short stories and poetry and won some stuff with that but I haven't had the time to pursue any of that recently.
  3. The color scheme for my upcoming nuptials are lavender, plum and steel grey.  Apparently the grey is depressing but it is one of my favorite colors.
  4. I'm a shameless and obsessive Harry Potter fan. I was always pulling for Draco and Hermione to get together. Alas...my dreams were shattered.
  5. I love shrimp and grits. I will order it from whatever restaurant I go to and have a killer recipe for it myself which leads to my next factoid...
  6. I love to cook! My parents and brother got me a massive wok for Christmas and I'm having fun figuring out different ways to cook with it.
  7. I am terrible at foreign languages. I have tried for years and years and I was nearly fluent in Spanish for a while. I can still communicate but I suck at it.
  8. I'm a Liverpool fan. I tend to use this as self defense in the South where I get asked about my football allegiances. I also tend to look like an asshole doing this.
  9. I use the word "y'all" deliberately. A fair number of people like to think that there is a dearth of well educated people from Alabama and I'm out to prove them wrong and still have a fun accent while doing it. 
  10. I'm getting into anime again so if anybody wants to recommend any, I'm happy to hear it!

Alright y'all, that's it! I'd like to very sincerely thank Rachel for the nomination! It means a lot that other bloggers are nominating people and it's such a cool and respectful thing to do. 

Also, thank you to everybody who follows me and comments, both here and on Goodreads. It's wonderful to be able to discuss books with others and not feel so isolated in the literary world. Y'all make reading more fun than it already is and I look forward to interacting every day. I think people forget really easily what a single small act can do for others but y'all brighten my world and I'd like to think I do the same for a few as you guys as well.

Much Love,


  1. Wonderful post Britt! I love photography too but I haven't been doing much of it lately. I don't think grey is a depressing colour at all and that colour combine sounds beautiful. Potterhead all the way! I love the Dramonie fanfics but I don't ship it personally. I love the Rose (Weasley) and Scorpio (Malfoy) ship though! <3

    Rachel @ Rachel's Reading Corner

    1. Thank you so much! Grey and purple are my favorite colors so I'm glad I got my way with the color scheme. Not that I ran into much resistance. Photography is so time consuming and difficult to get back into. I've heard of the Rose Scorpio ship but I still can't accept that Ron and Hermione got together and had kids. Ew no.

      The best ship I've heard of so far is Dobby/Smeagol

  2. Thanks so much for nominating me! This was a great post. And seriously, the whole Draco and Hermione thing would have been perfect. I used to read so much fanfiction about those two. :)

    1. Thank you!

      Draco was the only one smart enough for Hermione. Ron always came off as a mouth breather to me. I read a shameful amount of fanfiction about them too haha

  3. Thank you for nominating me Britt! Don't worry I will kill those spiders for you! *gets out huge shoe and fire* mwahahaha. I love the purple and grey I think they would make wonderful wedding colors! I posted my random facts if you would like to check them out also


    1. My pleasure! Purple and grey is spring to me and I need that for wedding planning! And thank you for killing the spiders. :-D

      I'll drop by and check out your answers!

  4. Thanks for the nomination! Will get to it soon:D

    1. My pleasure! Looking forward to your response!

  5. Hi Britt,
    Thanks again for nominating me!
    Here's my blogpost about the Versatile Blogger Award: http://imlovingbooks.blogspot.nl/2015/02/versatile-blogger-award.html

    Have a great day,


  6. Omgsh, #3 and #4!! I'm getting married in April! When are you? My colors are ivory, blush, and hints of lavender! (: Also, yessssss, Harry Potter!!! I used to read Harry Potter forums for hours searching for little things I may have missed in the books. (:

    I'm sooo sorry I took so long to respond to your nomination, but thank you! I FINALLY did my post! I've just been so busy with work, my wedding, meeting review deadlines, etc. My post is kind of long because I wrote about 3 topics in one post, but the award nomination is toward the bottom!

    My Versatile Blogger Award Nomination Post

    1. Congratulations! I'm not getting married until September 10th of 2016 so I have a ton of time. Your colors sound beautiful! Such wonderful Spring colors :-)

      I used to do the same thing with the Harry Potter books. I was always hoping for a Lord of the Rings situation where the author had created such an amazing world that they couldn't stop writing about it.

      I'll check out your post right away! I'm so glad you did it :-)

  7. Heey Britt! :D Thanks for the nomination!! And I am so sorry this reply is super over due!
