The Versatile Blogger Award #3

The-Versatile-Blogger-Award

Hey guys!

I was tagged by the lovely Aria from Snow White Hates Apples. Take a second and go check out her amazing blog. You won’t be disappointed. And thanks again for nominating me for this award!!


RULES
  1. Show the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the person that has nominated you.
  3. Share 7 different facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 blogs of your choice.
  5. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.

7 Facts About Me!

1) I study editing in school and hope to one day work for a publishing house. I originally wanted to work in the marketing department, but life sucked and I didn’t get accepted. So editing was my plan B! (Always have a plan B!)

2) I still love to play the Pokemon games. And I am not talking about Pokemon GO. I am talking old school and new school games for the Nintendo systems. My favorite game is Pokemon Crystal. I cannot wait to get my hands on the new Pokemon Sun and Moon!

3) I hate the summer heat! In fact, summer is my least favorite season of the year. Thankfully I live in Canada and we only get to experience Summer for 3 months of the year! Bring on the cooler weather please.

4) I have zero artistic talent. I cannot draw for the life of me. At the age of 24 I can still only draw stick figures and clouds. *singletear*

5) I drink more tea in a day then I do water. I know that is bad… but I can’t help it. If you love me, you’ll bring me a cup of tea. Black with a little milk and two sugars!

6) My eyes are light brown most of the year. But in some lights and certain times of the year they appear green. I guess I can thank my mother and her seagreen eyes for that!

7) I have small feet. I am a US size 6 in men’s shoes (which doesn’t exist), and a US size 8 in ladies shoes. So I tend to buy my shoes in the boys department or the women’s department. Is this a good thing? I’m not sure!


I TAG YOU

Sunshine Blogger Award #2

Sunshine-Blogger-Award

Hey guys!

I was nominated by the lovely Sush from Fervently Curious for the Sunshine Blogger Award. First off I want to thank her for the nomination, it really means a lot. And secondly I want you all to go check her blog right now. It’s amazing!

Rules:
– Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
– Nominate some wonderful bloggers and write 11 questions for them to answer


Do you love travelling? Where all have you been so far?

I loved travelling but for reasons that some may find odd. I really enjoy plane rides for one. I know some people tend to get frightened or anxious on planes, but I love every moment from the take off, to the turbulence, and finally to the landing. I find it to be a thrilling experience. Secondly I love eating. That means I am only going to go to places I know is going to have good food to over indulge in!

I have only seen the eastern hemisphere so far. This includes Montreal, Winnipeg, New York City, Buffalo, North and South Carolina, Miami for the cities and states in Canada/America. Mexico, Dominican, Jamaica, Bahamas, Cayman Islands for the Caribbean.

Places I want to go right now if I could would be: South Korea, Japan, England, France, Italy, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand!

Do you prefer e-books or physical books? 

I like a good mix of both. When I’m at home I like to curl up with a physical book and read for hours, but when I’m travelling or commuting to work I would rather have a e-book with me. It’s more portable and saves space and hassles.

Do you buy books online or from a bookshop? 

Again I do a mixture of both. Books tend to be a tad bit cheaper online, so I do do most of my shopping there, but I love the smell and atmosphere of book stores. I don’t think I have ever left empty handed when I go to them.

If you could have a super power, what would you choose? Why? 

There are so many good ones I wouldn’t mind having. Mind control because who wouldn’t want to have people do whatever you want? Invisibility so I can remain unseen and sneak around places. Time freezing to get out of sticky situations. The list is endless, but those would be my top three for sure!

What’s your dream job? 

I want to work in the publishing field. Whether it’s on the marketing side, or editing side of it. I wouldn’t mind working for a bookstore head office too. Maybe be in charge of book buying for the YA/Teen departments.

I also want to write my own book one day. It’s a far off dream and definitely something I want to work towards!

What is your signature makeup look? 

I don’t wear make up. I don’t really need to. I do sometimes cover up a blemish or zit when it’s really bad though.

Which celebrity would you love to meet?

I would love to meet quite a few. One would be the KPOP sensation Girls’ Generation, especially my idol Hyoyeon. And others include Henry Cavill, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Mindy Kaling, and Tyler Posey!

What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading quite a number of things:

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Graphic Novel)

Do you like reading indoors or outdoors?

I like a mixture of both. If the weather isn’t too humid, I like to read on my balcony. But definitely I do most of my reading in my bed where I can be comfy and cozy.

What’s the one thing/person that can always make you smile? 

Food? Honestly.

I’m going for all you can eat KBBQ tonight and that makes me really really happy right now. (Sorry boy who I’m dating… you know food trumps all)

Coffee or tea

Tea 100%. Coffee is disgusting.

7 Things You Might Already Know… I Can’t Remember!

  • I’m super introverted until I feel comfortable with situations. Which means I’m super quiet when you first me. I’m likely analyzing the environment/your personality.
  • I hate talking on the phone. It’s so bad to the point I don’t pick up people’s calls. Even if they’re friends/family.
  • In high school I took 2 years of Korean lessons for credits. Therefore I can read and write fluently… but can only speak basic conversational things.
  • Apparently I’ve been told I’m brutally honest. I have no filter. So I apologize if I offend you at all. It’s truly not my intentions.
  • I met two of my favorite authors ever! Morgan Rhodes author of the Falling Kingdoms series last June, and Pierce Brown just a couple days ago! Intentional self promotion, click for the RECAP of the Pierce Brown event!
  • I’m horrible at saving money. In fact I don’t even use my savings account. I spend too much money on food and books.
  • I LOVE BASEBALL!

The Liebster Award | Books at Dawn

The-Liebster-Award

Hey guys!

I was nominated by the lovely Amanda from My Books Opinion and Deanna from A Novel Glimpse for The Liebster Award. I just want to take the time to thank these ladies for the nomination. It really means a lot!

The purpose of The Liebster Award is to award bloggers. It spreads the word, helps you discover new blogs, and build a sense of community in the blogging universe!

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers that you think are deserving of the award
  • Let the bloggers know you nominated them
  • Give them 11 questions of your own

I was asked

How many books do you read per week and what is your goal for this year?

I can read an average of 1-2 books a week depending on the size. I tend to read multiple books at once because I am a huge book polygamist. I get bored when reading the same book consecutively.

My reading goal this year is set at 5o books. I was able to read 89 last year I believe which is insane. I don’t know how I did it. But I hope to at least hit my goal and more if I can this year!

How many book boyfriends do you have?

Well I have 3 main book boyfriends:

Magnus Damora (FK), Magnus Bane (TMI), and Kaz Brekker (SoC)

But I really could make a top 10 list. There is just so many!

What are the books that you are ashamed that you didn’t read?

I hear a lot of great things about these series’ and I promise I will get to them eventually. Maybe even this year!

What would you do if your friend lost a book that you lent to her/him?

I wouldn’t be happen that’s for sure. But books are replaceable, good friends are hard to come by. I’m sure they wouldn’t have lost it on purpose so I would just forgive them. I wouldn’t lend them any more books… but I’d still forgive them!

What is a book that you loved but hated the movie adaptation?

I don’t really hate the movie adaptations to books. I mean they only have 2 hours or so to fit all they can in. And of course it’s going to be a bit different then the book. So I don’t hate. But I did find Mortal Instruments: City of Bones to be lacking a bit!

What book describes you the most? Why?

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

This is literally my life… Everyone is totally hanging out without me because I prefer to stay in and read! HAHA. Bookworm problems….

What books made you stay up all night to finish it?

I honestly have so many troubles staying up at night to read a book… but I did this one in one sitting!

The Fault in Our Stars

If you had to choose between walking and reading, what would you choose?

Wow. Brutal.

Can I pick a loophole and choose walking, then learn to read as well? If not then I choose reading to be honest. I hate audio books!

What character would you want to be?

Hermoine

The most powerful muggle born witch there is: Hermoine! I’ve stated before how much I want to be her twin brother and be the two most powerful wizards the world has ever seen!

Did you ever cry in public while reading a book?

No… I still have yet to shed tears for a book. I’ve come close to crying, but I tend to keep it internal.

A character that you want to punch in the face?

Just one? Let me list a few:

Jacob Black (Twilight), Agatha (Carry On), Eleanor and Park (Eleanor & Park), Mare Barrow (Red Queen), Octavia au Lune (Red Rising), Chaol (Throne of Glass), Rhys (ACOTAR), Mal (Shadow and Bone), Cinder (Cinder), King Gaius (Falling Kingdoms), Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter)


My Questions to You

  1. What is the first book you’ve ever fangirled over?
  2. Name an author who you will always auto buy from. Even if the book is blank.
  3. What is the last movie you have seen in theaters?
  4. Which book do you regret buying?
  5. Which one of your 5 senses can you live without: sight, smell, touch, hearing, taste? Why?
  6. What book would you like to see as a movie?
  7. With wanting more diversity in books nowadays, what is one aspect you believe should be represented more and why?
  8. Hero, Assassin, or Prince/Princess? You can only pick one. Which do you choose to be in a story with you as the main character?
  9. Pick 6 of your favorite characters and pretend they were in a horror movie. Only one will be the survivor, four of them will die, and the other one will be the killer. Who is the survivor, the killer and in what order did the others die in?
  10. Your favorite author is going to call you for a once in a lifetime chance to talk. You can only ask them one question. Who is the author and what is the question? Why?
  11. In your opinion who is the worst literary couple ever?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my answers to the questions! And sorry if I want to punch one of your favorite characters. It’s nothing personal!

Until next time,
