Beautiful Blogger Award. Yay!

Dear Blog,
A very very big thank you/efcharistó and virtual hug to Giota of Just Another Book Blog who found my lowly blog worthy of the Beautiful Blogger Award.  Yippee!  I've never gotten a blog award before.

This award has a few rules:
1. Thank and link to the person who gave you the award
2. Pass the award onto 15 bloggers you've recently discovered and think are fantastic
3. Contact said blogs and let them know they've won
4. State 7 things about yourself

Seeing as that's what everybody else likes to do, I'll start with seven facts about me:
  1. I've been to 28 countries, which I suppose for a teenager is rather a lot.  When I was 11 my family and I travelled around Europe by way of motorhome which explains things.
  2. I'm home educated/homeschooled.
  3. There is nothing better than Ben & Jerry's ice cream.  Except a good book of course.
  4. I am obsessed with everything  Japanese. 
  5. By the time I was four I could name all the kings and queens of England and name when they were coronated.  I had a poster in my bedroom that had a big timeline with all the names and dates on it and I used to look at it for ages.
  6. I play the classical guitar.  My favourite composer is Ferdinando Carulli. 
  7. I have a knack for languages.  As well as English I speak German, Russian, can read and write a basic level of Kanji and speak bits of Czech, Norwegian, Icelandic and French (but not very much).
Now then. Blogs!  I'm supposed to list ones I've *recently* discovered, but being new to the Blogosphere (about a month or two) I guess all the blogs I read I've read recently.  But many of these I have stumbled upon recently as in, the last few weeks anyway.  So here are 15 awesome blogs I read and love (started off in alphabetical order but then ended up just in no particular layout).

Daisy Chain Book Reviews
