This is the button I made, but feel free to use it, but please link back to me! Thanks.

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Answer 11 questions set by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers to receive the award and write them 11 new questions to answer.

Questions from Kayla

1.If your region is currently in spring, what are you doing this summer? Or if not, what did you do this past summer?
This summer I have no idea what I am doing! All I know is that I will be going to my Uncles and Cousins for the first time in probably 8 years for Christmas,  don’t know exactly how that is going to go as there is a lot of family drama there. But hopefully it will be good!

2. How many physical books do you own?
Gimmie a second!
I’m back
94

3. Under what circumstances would you DNF a book? 
If it was way to confusing and I had no idea what was actually happening.. Or if it’s just really boring and I’m not enjoying myself. I have only not finished 1 book and that was Game of Thrones, I was confused and it was hard to understand and I just felt straight up bored reading it and also a little disgusted with it..

4. What was the last movie you saw in theatres? Did you enjoy it?
I have not been to a cinema in so long! But I think the last movie I saw was Find Dory and yes I enjoyed it.

5. What are your favourite and least favourite things about blogging?
Favourite thing would be the community, chatting with people who have similar opinions to or even discussing with someone about why we have different opinions on a book. My least favourite thing is literally nothing. I am still only new, but I haven’t found anything I don’t enjoy about blogging

6. Tell me a teaser sentence from the book you’re currently reading!

“Because from the day I met her I’d known I wanted to be part of any world she belonged to. Did that make me crazy? Or was my heart too easily conquered?”

7. What device do you use to write your blog posts (computer, phone, etc.)?

Always computer

8.Tell me a little known fact about you that no other bloggers know.

I have always wanted a Husky, but my mother hated dogs and while I’m living with dad he won’t get a dog unless it’s a Chihuahua that he can take in his truck with him.

9. If you could travel anywhere in the world right this instant, where would you go, and why?

I would go to either the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort or to Warner Bros. Studios in London to take the The Making of Harry Potter Tour.

10. What song is stuck in your head right now? (if any)

Honestly, nothing. The last thing I was listening to was an Audiobook. So maybe that’s why.

11. I personally love the idea of giving a shoutout to 5 bloggers, so go ahead and spread the love like confetti!😊

I will do a shoutout to my 5 latest followers

3. What book do you wish had a prequel?
4. What character do you want to trade places with?
5. What book to movie adaption disappointed you the most?
6. Where is your favourite place to read?
7. Do you like books that add pictures into them? For example Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children (Not children’s or comics)
8. What book do you plan to read next?
9. If you could choose one book world to spend 24 hours in with no rules, no money limitations or travel limitations where would you go?
10. If you could have one object out of any book (have it and it works exactly the same as it would in the book) what would you choose?
11. Do you think that any books should be banned from schools, within reason?

Blogger Recognition Award

screen-shot-2016-10-23-at-11-34-13-am

I was nominated by Lia @ Lost in a Story for the Blogger Recognition Award! If you haven’t checked out her blog already then you should now! Thank you Lia for nominating me!!

I couldn’t find an actual button for the Blogger Recognition Award, it just looks like someone has made one and then a couple people continue it on until someone else makes another one.. So I’m making my own haha.

Feel free to use it just please link back to me! Thank you

Rules

  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.

How I started

Well, I actually started for basically the same reason as Lia! I have been watching BookTube for ages now and I have always had the idea in the back of my head that I wanted to do this, but whenever I tried I just hated the recording part as I just don’t like being in front of a camera (unless it’s a selfie haha). I discovered the Book Blogging world and knew that this is was my answer and what I wanted to do!

I also hate sitting around doing nothing and living in a small town like I do there isn’t much to do and while blogging I fee like I’m actually accomplishing something!

Advice for new bloggers

Well, I’m fairly new myself as I have only been blogging for a couple months and only have about 50 followers.

My biggest advice is, don’t be scared to comment on other peoples posts! I have never struck a rude book blogger yet so don’t be scared to start a conversation or share your opinion on other people’s post. Most people will reply and it also gets you out there more and it will help your follower number haha. You will find that if you comment on someone’s post some people will go to your blog and comment on your posts! I know this is what I always try to do!

Always be honest! Even if you feel bad for absolutely disliking a book! Be honest and you will find that there is probably someone out there that agrees with you and you might just make an awesome friend with someone who has the same views as you on books! Also if you receive a book for review, whether it is an ARC or a book that has already been released, don’t feel like because you received the book for free that you can’t be honest if you don’t like the book.

I hope this advice will help someone! Because I know it helped me when I was still learning (well I still am learning haha).

I Tag

I tried to check if people have already done the award before tagging, but not everyone has search bar options on their blog! So sorry if I tagged you and you already have done it.

The Sunshine Blogger Award

 

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-10-02-03-pm

I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the lovely Paige from Paige’s Pages. Please go check out her beautiful blog!

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-6-12-10-pm

This is my button, but feel free to use it, but please link back to me.

Rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award:

1. Answer 11 questions from your nominator
2. Nominate 11 other blogs and ask them 11 questions

11 Questions that Paige wrote:

1. What fortress from a fantasy book would you most want to be inside if you were under attack?

I can’t really think of any fortresses that I have read about that actually held up under attack. The only thing I can think of is District 13 from The Hunger Games but it wasn’t exactly the best either.

2. If you could pick any artist – living or dead – to design all of your blog graphics, who would it be and why?

Jim Kay, his work in the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone illustrated edition was absolutely gorgeous!

3. What is one trait that you envy most in other people and why? 

The only thing is I wish I was a bit shorter as with my job being my height is not great on your shoulders… But besides that, I really don’t envy anything. There is are couple things that I am like ‘that would be cool’ but it’s not something that actually worries me…

4. What three book characters would you want in your dream high school posse? 

Adrian Ivashkov from Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead
Rose Hathaway also from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mean
Ron Weasley from Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

5. If your house were on fire and you only had time to save one book, what would it be and why is it so special to you?  

Can I choose a series?? Please! I would defiantly grab my copy of the Harry Potter series as it is my favourite series ever and also because all the other books are nearly new and you can still buy whereas my Harry Potter series is the older design and I prefer them more than all of the new editions I have seen. This series is special to me as I grew up reading and watching this series and I absolutely love everything about these books and the world within them.

6. What fellow book blogger inspires you the most and why?  (Tag them to send them some love!)

I’m only new, so I don’t actually know that many blogs or bloggers well enough for any to inspire me.

7. What is one small thing you can do today to surprise someone with kindness? 

I don’t really know how to answer this question… Except weekends when I go out I don’t really have much interaction with people except for at work in which I am literally paid to be nice to people. So I don’t really know what to say for this question.

8. Can you name one story that you believe can be enjoyed universally?  

Where there really isn’t any books that everyone would enjoy as we all have different tastes and that’s perfectly okay!

9. Can you think of three songs that would make the perfect soundtrack to your favourite book?

My favourite book series is the Harry Potter series with my favourite book being Order of the Pheonix but I really have no idea what songs would match it!

10. If you were an inter-dimensional tourist, what fictional place would you most like to visit for a holiday?  

I would defiantly go on holidays to either Forening from the Trylle Trilogy or to Hogwarts Castle if that was possible haha! It’s not exactly a place open to visitors to holiday haha

11. Can you describe your fondest childhood reading experience?  

Before reading Harry Potter the only books that I had read were this series of books that were about dogs and I don’t really remember them… So I don’t really have one.
