Do you know when you’re in a blog funk and don’t know what to post? Yeah, that was me last night, but thankfully, I was saved. Bunner Booky tagged me. If you haven’t checked that blog, do so now and spread some love!
Morning, my book fam!
How do you start off a new week? Do an award post! I truly do not deserve all this love, but I thank every single one of you. For the past month, I’ve been missing in action. A lot of stress with the government, a stolen credit card, and other personal matters kept me away from my blog, so I’m trying to catch up with all of your posts and comments!
Ally from Ally Writes Things nominated me for my third Liebster Award, and I am so thrilled for that. Thank you, Ally! So head over to her blog, then come back here. 😉
You all never cease to amaze me. Every time I get a nomination, I wonder what I’ve done to deserve it. Kaleena from Reader Voracious nominated me. Kaleena, you’ve made a tough month much more happier. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Right now, she deserves just the same recognition. So head over to her blog!
I need to catch up on my posts sitting in my draft pile, or I’ll never get to them. Don’t you hate that? Anyways, Sara from Bibliophagist nominated me a long while ago, and I thought today is the best day to finally get to award. Thank you, Sara!
It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion. – Okoto Enigma
Here are my top three favourite posts:
What’s your favorite mythical creature?
Dragons! Hands down, I adore dragons. I cannot get enough of them.
What’s your go-to order at a coffee shop?
I love getting muffins, especially chocolate chip or blueberry. And I usually finish it off with a cold lemonade.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I have so many places, but I’d love to live in Alaska. But I’m not sure if I’d love the bugs though.
Sweet, salty, or sour snacks?
I like all three, actually. But I prefer the first two though.
Would you rather say everything on your mind or never speak again?
HA, one thing you’ll learn quickly of me is that I do not have a filter, so I clearly say whatever is on my mind. However, if I become too quiet, especially if I’m angry, that’s when you should be concerned.
Have you had great expectations to get multiple posts done, then you lose all that momentum? I’m there right now. And as 1 am quickly comes, I wish it didn’t disappear. 😂
Anyways, Ally from Ally Writes Things nominated me for this award. Thank you for the support! You all need to check out her blog. I love it.
Brittany from Perfectly Tolerable recently nominated me! I loved reading her post and answers and knew I had to do this post. Go check out her blog!
How many pets do you have? If you don’t have any, do you want some? (Pictures always appreciated!!!)
I currently have one. He looks after me when I sick or sad. He makes my mornings better (and louder since we have yelling matches 😂). And he gave me hope when I needed it the most.
What was the last movie you saw in the theatre?
Venom! I went into the theatre, thinking I’d hate the movie. But I enjoyed it, especially the elevator scene.
What is your favourite book trope?
Enemy-to-lovers and villains doing good things/heroes doing terrible acts
What is your least favourite book trope?
Burying gay characters. Please, authors, stop doing this. Sure, you can put them in dangerous situations, but at least give them a fighting chance, especially if they’re the only gay person.
Coffee or Tea?
I can’t stand either. I hate the smell and the taste of coffee, and tea sometimes tastes like potpourri. 😂 And yes, it takes me a while to wake up.
What is your favourite Genre and why?
I love high fantasy. I love exploring different worlds that don’t match our own.
What is your favourite type of blog post to write?
I love writing book tags. I get to understand my followers and the bloggers I follow more.
What is your favourite type of blog post to read?
Lists and discussion posts! I always find new books to read with the former.
If you were given $30 to spend on a book today, what book would you buy?
Either Nevernight or the collector’s edition of Six of Crows.
Would you be excited or weary if you found out your favourite book was being made into a movie?
I have two series that will be turned into a movie and a TV show. I’m nervous as hell right now!
Are there any songs that make you think of certain books or scenes from books? If so, which songs/books?
Seven Devils by Florence + the Machine reminds me of A Court of Thorns and Roses, and Poison & Wine by The Civil Wars reminds me of the Red Queen series.
I don’t want anyone to feel pressured. So if you don’t feel up to doing this award, that’s okay. If you do, link back to my post!
Hey, book lovers!
Is it really Thursday?! I can’t believe it. Taylor from Nerd Narration nominated me. And I can’t thank her enough for doing so.
If you haven’t checked out her blog, do it!
The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, positive, and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.
What is one of your favourite book quotes?
“I will have you without armor, Kaz Brekker. Or I will not have you at all.” —Inej, Six of Crows
If you won a free plane ticket anywhere in the world where would it take you and what is the FIRST thing you’d do there?
Scotland. I want to see where my family originated from.
What is your favorite underrated/under reviewed book?
What celebrity would cause death by fangirling if you got to meet them on the street?
I think I would die happy if I saw Tom Hiddleston dressed up as Loki. I’d pet him before I let myself die though.
What is your favorite 2018 read — so far?
I LOVE MY LITTLE DARK BABIES
What is the last band you saw in concert?
HA. I’ve been to only two concerts, so I’ll say Jack’s Mannequin.
What’s the last book that made you cry?
I’m getting to the good stuff, and I’m all weepy. Someone smack me, please. 😭
What’s the current most played track on your Spotify/Apple Music/iTunes playlist? No cheating!
You may laugh at this, but it’s the Avengers: Infinity War teaser trailer track.
If you were going to get a tattoo based off a book what would you get and why?
I would take a quote from the Throne of Glass series. I never thought I’d relate to a character as much as I do with Aelin.
What’s your favorite meal? Your go-to dinner if money wasn’t an option.
There was an old pizza joint in town. And it made the best panzerotti I’ve ever tasted. You don’t know how much money I’d spend just to have another bite of it.
Who’s your fictional crush and who would you cast IRL to play them?
*crushes (help me)
Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles. Honestly, I’d be perfectly fine commandeering stuff and flying around the Earth. 😂
All of you deserve every single blogging award. But I don’t want you to be obligated to do this one. So there’s no rush. If you do want to do it, link me up!
How’s your long weekend looking? I finally feel like myself after Fan Expo. I never knew I could walk that much, but my feet say otherwise. 😲
I’ve never done this award before. Leslie from Books Are the New Black nominated me. You need to check out her blog. You’re in for a treat.
Thank you, Leslie! 💜😘
If you don’t feel like doing this post or have been nominated before, don’t feel obligated. But if you want to do it, link back to me! I’d love to see your responses.
Thank you again, Leslie.
Happy Friday, everyone!!!
JoBeth from Blue Binding nominated me for this award. Thank you so much for this, JoBeth! You just made my weekend!
Be sure to check out her blog.
If you could meet with any author (living or dead), who would you choose?
I heard authors. Did you? Okay, here are my three picks:
Leigh Bardugo: I’ve connected with her and her work so much that I feel I need to pay thanks in person. She has an unbelievable strength for what she goes through and what she accomplishes, and I adore her.
Sabaa Tahir: This woman made me love fantasy again. And she taught tolerance in a world that is hellbent on hot seeing it.
Marissa Meyer: She may be my newest favourite, but I love her nonetheless!
What is your favourite dessert?
It’s almost midnight, and now I can’t stop thinking about dessert (thank you, btw) 😂 Jello is by far my favourite. It got me through some rough parts of my life, and it made parts of my life sweeter (enjoy the pun).
What is your favourite childhood book or story?
I used to love the Goosebump stories. They’ve played such a huge role in my love of fantasy that I couldn’t
1. Which author would you love to co-write a book with?
2. If you could only read books from five authors for the rest of your life, who would you choose? (stole this one)
3. Which genre do you like the least?
You know I have to show my love with you all. So I’ll nominate you. If you’ve already done this award, don’t feel like you need to do it. If you do though, link me to your post! I’d love to see your responses!
I truly need to stop working on my blog so late at night. One time, I might actually get a review done, not push it back to the next day. 😂
The amazing Bibi nominated me for this award. You guys are too good to me, you know that?! When I see these kinds of noms show up in my notifications, I want to hug you all. Clearly, you need to follow her blog, so go check it out!
How do you decide what book you will read next?
And you have started the first question off with a hard one. And here I thought this post would be easy. 😂 Typically, I plan which books I want to read throughout the month. So I want to read the recently released books immediately. However, I’ve been indecisive about which book to pick up lately. I’ve changed my mind three times this week just so I would stick with reading A Reaper at the Gates.
If you had to build your own harem, which 3-5 book loves would you choose? You can only pick one per book.
Yessss, someone finally asks me this question! And I find another harem reader (wow, that sounds horrible). I am not a hornball. I swear.
What’s your favourite kind of blog post to write and why?
I love writing discussion posts. They allow me to interact with more bloggers and see what their thoughts are on a particular topic. And I just love debating about books. So it works for me.
Right now, I’m working on one that talks about supporting bloggers in minorities and with disabilities, which I’m excited to finish!
Muahaha, now I get to pick my victims. 😈
No pressure! If you’ve recently done this, don’t worry. But if you want to go ahead, link me up so I can read your responses, which are the best part of this award!
