One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award ImageI would like to thank both Shadows and Java and Fantasy Books! for nominating Tsundoku Reviews for the One Lovely Blog Award. It is much appreciated! I implore, beg, beseech, and strongly recommend that you visit and read their blogs. Trust me they are worth it!

For the One Lovely Blog Award, below I’ve listed eight facts about myself, as well as shared five writing quotes. Since I received two nominations back-to-back I thought it was only fair that I nominated 10 blogs in return—enjoy!  There aren’t any rules for this award so nominees are welcome to share facts and quotes about themselves and pass the award on.

Five Quotes
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” –Wayne Gretzky

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.


“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.” Napoleon Hill

“Time I have only just a minute. Only sixty seconds in it. Forced upon me, can’t refuse it. Didn’t seek it, didn’t choose it. But it’s up to me to use it. I must suffer if I lose it. Give account if I abuse it, Just a tiny little minute but eternity is in it.”                          –Anonymous

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” – Marianne Williamson
