Happy Saturday everyone!
Today I’m back with another
long overdue award post! Today I’m doing the Awesome Blogger Award, which I was nominated for by Claire @ Cup of Books, Joe @ Storeys of Stories, and Kiersten. Thank you all so much for the nominations! Please go check out their blogs if you haven’t already. They’re all some of my favourite and have some of the best, most relatable posts.
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Tag it under #awesomebloggeraward
- Answer the questions asked.
- Nominate at least five awesome bloggers.
- Give your nominees ten questions.
- Let your nominees know that they’ve been nominated.
The award was created by Maggie @ Dreaming of Guatemala who stated, “This is an award for the absolutely wonderful writers all across the blogging world. They have beautiful blogs, are kind and lovely, and always find a way to add happiness and laughter to the lives of their readers. That is what truly defines an awesome blogger.”
Questions from Claire
Do you prefer hot chocolate, tea or coffee?
This is so hard because I like all of them! Probably hot chocolate because I drink it all the time. But I also love mochas, which I guess is hot chocolate and coffee together?
Would you rather read under a snuggly blanket by the fire or outdoors in the warm sun with a cold drink?
Probably snuggled by a fire! One of my favourite things to do during Christmas is read by our fire.
What is your favourite animal?
I like all animals honestly. Maybe horses because I ride, but I also love dogs and birds.
What is your favourite movie?
Spirited Away. It’s one of the most magical movies I’ve ever watched.
What is your favourite dessert?
I love almost all chocolate-themed desserts, but chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream probably wins.
What is you favourite book?
Please don’t make me choose!!
Do you prefer reading or writing?
Reading for sure! I never really stuck with writing, but I’ve been missing it lately. I write a lot for school and work, but those are academic papers and don’t really count.
If you could pick any book that you wish you had written, what would it be?
This is such a good question! Maybe Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I think it’s such a compelling read while still being so simple, and I wish I had the talent to pull that off.
Who is your favourite author?
I almost always say Neil Gaiman because I love his writing, but I have such a hard time picking favourites, so I’m not really sure.
Which do you prefer, Marvel or DC?
Okay on a superhero basis, DC because I love Batman and Wonder Woman with my whole heart. But as like movies and as a whole universe, Marvel.
Questions from Joe and Kiersten (neither of you put questions so I just stole the questions you answered lol)
If you could choose any job to have in the world (fictional or real) what would it be and why?
I’m straight up stealing Kiersten’s answer and saying a librarian at Hogwarts. That would be so great.
Who is your favourite booktuber/blogger?
All the people nominated below and the three who nominated me are some of my favourites, plus so many others! And I don’t really watch a ton of booktube, but a girl I went to high school with has a booktube channel and I watch her sometimes (Jordan Harvey, check her out!!).
Why did you decide to start blogging?
I love books (obviously) and I don’t have a ton of people in my life to talk to about books (I have a lot of friends who read, but I don’t want to bug them with my incessant book talk) and I wanted somewhere to talk about books as much as I wanted. And it’s been great!
We all have literary passports, where is yours stamped the most?
The Night Circus. As much as I would love to go to Hogwarts, I would also love to visit the Night Circus and experience the magic.
What’s your Harry Potter name? Use this generator to find out!
Angelina Moody. Aww, that’s kind of cute! And I’d be related to Mad-eye Moody, who’s so great.
(it’s better than yours, Joe!)
What are some of your guilty pleasures? Whether they are book related or not.
Starbucks lol. I spend too much money on hot chocolate and mochas and banana bread, but they’re tasty and help when I’m sad so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
(I’m a fan of eating your feelings lol)
What is something that you love about your blog?
I love all the interactions with everyone. Honestly, every comment and discussion makes my day and makes me so happy ❤
What is your favourite post that you have personally done?
I like a lot of my discussion posts, such as my one on things I want to see represented more and the representation of medication in books. I also liked my recent Top 5 Tuesdays where I just posted pretty book covers, because I like aesthetics.
- If you could only read one 2018 release, which would it be?
- What’s one series you’d like to turn into a TV show?
- Do you listen to podcasts? If so, which ones?
- Do you have any weird hobbies?
- What’s your favourite animal?
- Describe your dream reading room.
- Who’s your favourite author?
- If you could travel anywhere with any book character, where and who?
- What’s your go-to Starbucks (or other coffee shop) order?
- Are there any books on your TBR that you probably will never read but you convince yourself you will?
As always, no pressure!
Thanks again to Claire, Joe, and Kiersten for the nominations! And thank you everyone for reading and supporting my blog!
