The Liebster Award (3)

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. 😉

Mystery Blogger Award (Take 2)

 

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!

What Is the Mystery Blogger Award?

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 the Rules:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog
  • List the rules.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  • You have to nominate 10 – 20 people
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify)
  • Share a link to your best post(s)

Here are my top three favourite posts:

  1. Addressing Sexual Assault in YA Books
  2. Badass Female Leads Deserve Equal Respect as Males
  3. Support Bloggers of Minorities and with Disabilities

Three Facts about Me

  1. I have horrible stage fright. I cannot for the life of me do presentations without wanting to throw up. My speech impediment, which isn’t noticeable anymore, turned me this way.
  2. I’m afraid of getting a bad sore throat. When I was young, I kept getting tonsillitis, and for a good year, I was put in antibiotics until I went in for the surgery. Since then, I freak out when I get it.
  3. I have a thing for threes. So I arrange things in three, I buy things in three (except for books, or I’d be broke).

Sara’s Questions

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.

The Unique Blogger Award

If I could scream without causing another coughing attack, I would. But I can’t. Over the weekend, Merline from Merline Reads nominated me. Thank you, deary. ❤ I needed that pick-me-up since I got sick on my birthday and have been a walking plague ever since.

I was wondering how I’d start off the week, and my mind was coming up blank. So you’ve saved my butt, Merline. You should go check out her blog!

Now, onto the award.

 

The Rules
  • Display the award!
  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  • Answer the questions they’ve written for you!
  • Nominate 8-13 bloggers and give them three questions in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity within our blogging family!

Merline’s Questions

1. How do you balance personal life, blogging, reading, and other commitments?

Plan, plan, and plan. You can’t wing everything in life, even if half of the people I know would say otherwise. My planner has saved me more than once. You may need to make a blogging day (or days) so you can schedule which posts to write.

With reading, I calculate how many pages I need to read per day. One tip I’d give is to write reviews as soon as you’ve finished the book, or you’ll run into problems with no remembering certain details. Perhaps I should take my own advice. 😅

 

2. Describe the book of your dreams.

Oh, I’d love for a book that could actually transport me into the story. Wait. No, scratch that book. That’s the plot for the Chamber of Secrets. Nope. Not interested, Riddle.

I don’t have one, which surprises me since I thought I would. Fiction will always have flaws in it. Even my most favourite books have them. Or maybe I’m still looking for the most sarcastic character who will prove me wrong.

 

3. What you would do with a million dollars?

First, I’d support my Mom. She has given up so much since she became disabled, and she has always deserved more. And no, Mother’s Day doesn’t sway my thoughts.

If I had anything left over, I’d invest it, or I’d build my own library and stock it with tons of books.

Sunshine Blogger Award

 

Eee! I love doing these posts. Laronda @ Flying Paperbacks nominated me for this award. I can’t be more thrilled. Thank you, Laronda!!!

 

Rules

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post/or on your blog.

 

Laronda’s Questions

How did you decide the theme for your blog?

I had no clue what I wanted or how I wanted to design my blog, so I picked the Nucleare theme off of WP, then went with the turquoise colour, which came with the theme, then tada! I have my theme.

But I’m hoping to change it soon though!

What’s your favorite animal?

Cats, but wolves are a close second.

How did you find your favorite book?

Ahahahaha, in Grade 8, my English teacher saw I was reading it, then she gave it to me. She forgot it was strictly adult, and I probably shouldn’t have been allowed to read it.  😅

Is there any strategy to the way to organize your shelves?

I—or the organizational freak who inhabits my mind—prefer size, then within that size, I go by preference. If I like book A better than book B, then A goes before B.

Have you met any authors?

Years ago, I met Kelley Armstrong. Last year though, I wanted to meet Sarah J. Maas when she came to Canada, but I doubted I would have gotten to see her. The lineup was insane.

Favorite app on your phone?

Instagram, even though I don’t use it for my blog yet.

If you could have any pet form any book, what would it be?

Bryaxis from ACOWAR. He’s so adorable, and he scares Cassian. 😂

What’s your favorite book in your least favorite color?

I haven’t read it yet, but Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones has a pink cover. I first thought I’d hate the colour, but surprisingly it looks great.

Winter or Summer?

Winter. I can’t stand the heat.

What is a guilty pleasure show you watch?

The Runaways! Unfortunately, the CGI isn’t the greatest, and the writing is a bit cliche, but I love it.

How many times have you moved and which place was your favorite?

I’ve moved only once. Even though I loved my old house, I prefer the one I live in now.


My Questions

  1. What are you hoping authors change or finally include in their books for 2018?
  2. Which trope do you love/hate?
  3. Which OTP is your favourite? Or which OTP are you hoping will sail?

  5. Which villain would you kiss, marry, or kill?
  6. What would you like to see changed or fixed in the blogging community?

  8. Which author are you dying to get a signature from?
  9. Do you think you should judge a book without reading it (especially if you’ve heard bad things about it)?
  10. Which books are you anticipating the most for the next few months?
  11. Which characters would you love to see get in a fight? Who do you think would win?
