Shock & Awe - PJV made the Short List

I sit here in stunned silence. 

You see, I never expected to make the Short List for BBAW. I stayed away from the blog once I saw I made the long list, didn't pester to vote, didn't even hope. I figured that it was awesome that you lovely people nominated me, but there were some really good blogs that I was listed next to, so chances were that this would be it. But, it would seem, I made it through. Pushed my way through to The Short List (Pause while I jump around the house, scare the neighbors, the cat and the small child and then call up Prada to get my awards nominee gown ready - ok I can't afford even Prado -- I guess this Target Prom Dress will do. Realize there won't be a red carpet and an awards ceremony, so sit back down and finish penning this post) and realized that you guys love really do! *sniffle sniffle*

Seriously though, this is amazing and to not just make it, but all three categories that I was nominated made it through...I am humbled and shocked and I can't thank everyone enough. I really didn't think it would come to this.

I'm on the list for:

Best Book Blog Feature or Series of Posts

Best Book Blog Meme
Feature and Follow my Book Blog
(when I went to vote, I wasn't on the list though - so maybe this short list is a mistake, I'll keep you posted)

and most flattering:
Best Written Blog - Parajunkee's View

I really appreciate this everyone! You are beautiful beautiful people. If you would like to vote, it ends on the 10th...and you can vote here. 

I'm also not surprised to see a few awesome blogs also on these lists, congratulations to: 

Supernatural Snark for niche category: Eclectic Book Blog {how cool is that!}
 Roof Beam Reader for niche category: Literary Fiction Book Blog {boy power!}
  Smexy Books for niche category: Romance Book Blog {I love some smexy!}
 Book Chick City  for niche category: Speculative Fiction Book Blog {Holla!}

And wow...congrats The Book Vixen & Pure Imagination for niche category Young Adult Book Blog {a very tough decision - both of them are amazing!!}

Also congrats to The Unread Reader for her Blog Feature When I’m Not Reading & her Meme My Book Boyfriend

You guys should be very excited and I can't wait to see the results. Everyone has put so much time into their blogs and this is just a representation of the fact that people are actually paying attention. Congrats. Don't forget to vote!
