Snippets on a Sunday

So many exciting little tasks and blurbs today to make up “Snippets on a Sunday” today.

First off without further ado I will announce the winner of my Got Books? contest which included a fantastic YA book prize pack and some secret swag as well! The lucky winner is….Erin of Bookish in a Box! Congrats Erin!I also conducted a poll for favorite authors with the contest. It’s something I am always interested in knowing about people. I like to also see what interests my readers have. So below are the top ten authors as chosen by contest entrants and twitter responses. I had over 200 responses to this question and I found my results to be very interesting. I see some trending due to new and much awaited future releases but I also see some classic author responses as well. What do you think? Whose your favorite author? Did they make the list?

Top Ten Favorite Authors

1.) Suzanne Collins

2.) J. K. Rowling

3.) Cassandra Clare

4.) Charlaine Harris

5.) Maggie Stiefvater

6.) James Patterson

7.) Stephen King

8.) Stephenie Meyer

9.) Janet Evanovich

10.) Kelley Armstrong

Close Runners’s Up: Meg Cabot, Jane Austen, John Green, L. J. Smith, Nora Roberts, Margaret Atwood

And I also was a winner yesterday….Stiletto Storytime received the Versatile Blogger Award from my friend Selva at My Views. Selva is from India and new to the book blogging world. I always find it interesting what he chooses to read and review. I myself cannot imagine reading and reviewing in a second language! It’s part of what to me makes his blog so interesting. Make sure you check him out. Thanks Selva!

Now that I’ve received this award, the rules are I have to pass it on to 15  other fabulous blogs (I will be doing 8 blogs) that I have just discovered. I also have to link back to the person who gave me the award (as done above) and say 7 things about myself that you wouldn’t otherwise know…

1.) My favorite color is white some people find that odd.

2.) My favorite smells are clean laundry, fresh cut grass and lavender.

3.) When I was Young…

4.) My favorite book is Jane Eyre. I read it several times a year. It’s my comfort book.

5.) I am an Alpha Delta Pi alumni.

6.) I love Granny Smith apples with sharp cheddar cheese.

7.) I once spent three weeks traveling throughout India.

Now here are my 8 blogs that I think are worth checking out:

*Bookish in a Box *Me, My Book and the Couch *Parajunkee’s View *Reading Vacation *Word Bird *Pop Culture Junkie

* Young Adult Books Reviewed *The Story Siren

To all my fellow bloggers…I hope you enjoy the award! I do so enjoy all of your blogs! Congrats!
