If you're a Blogger or avid reader, you just might have heard of the massively successful UKYABA's. I definitely have. It's been a dream of mine to be a part of the nominees. So when I was longlisted for Best CONTENT & DESIGN and Best ESTABLISHED BLOGGER a few days ago, I couldn't believe my luck! I had sent away my nominations for friends like everyone else, but never thought in my wildest dreams that I'd get that far. But then, just like that, I was SHORTLISTED for Content & Design. As in, the final! 

I was in utter SHOCK. I couldn't believe it for a long time. I scrolled the names, double, triple checking and tweeting my dismay. So here I am, still recovering from a throat infection and bad case of the Flu, making a little video and asking you, my readers and PLM Family, to vote for me. This is truly a dream come true. I'm in the running with so many incredible names in the other categories and in the same category is one of my dear friends that I wish I could vote for (but we can't vote in our own category). The love in the bookish community makes my heart soar and I am forever thankful. Every single vote helps! So, if you're eligible to vote for me, please do! It would mean everything to me. But even to just be nominated is an achievement and I'm so proud of myself and you all for getting me here. 

Taken from the UKYABA website, here is the information you need to vote for me (pretty please!):

To vote for me (Book Bloggers), email ukyaba@gmail.com with the subject: UKYABA Shortlist Voting – Book Blogger Voting Form. 

If you're a UK Author, please email ukyaba@gmail.com with the subject: UKYABA Shortlist Voting – Author Voting Form.
To be qualified to vote you must be an active UK Blogger or Author. International family, I'm so sorry you won't be able to vote. All you do is email the above address and they'll send you a form back, you open it in Word and check the boxes of who you'd like to vote for and then email it back. Then they have your votes!

Thank you so much for everything. I owe you the world!
I also hit 100k (and a bit more!) views on Pretty Little Memoirs recently, and it's just been a whirlwind of goodness surrounding me. You have no idea how much it means!
happy reading!
