okay this is a lot to do and I’m feeling kind of overwhelmed, so bare with me and I’ll go in order maybe kind of.

About Me…

  1. I’ve been a vegetarian since my psycho teacher made me do a report on animal cruelty in 5th grade
  2. I’m really shy meeting new people, but once I know you I’m super outgoing and probably really annoying
  3. I have naturally wavy/curly hair and I normally wear it natural now.  In middle school I straightened it every single day.

Answering Tavleen’s Questions…

1. If you could kill one fictional character , who would it be?

Umbridge from Harry Potter. ¬†Hands down. The woman is absolutely awful, I can’t stand her, and I want her gone from everything. ¬†She was so annoying because it wasn’t even like she was trying to conquer the world, she was just a ministry robot who enjoyed torturing children. ¬†That’s psychotic (I’m using that word a lot today so sorry).

2. What is an unpopular bookish opinion of yours?

Hmmmm I feel like I fit the stereotype for most bookish opinions. ¬†I’d have to say that the biggest thing is that I despised Stolen, by Lucy Christopher (read my review to see why) whereas most people seemed to enjoy it and think it was a refreshing, exciting read. ¬†I just couldn’t buy into that and I stand firmly beside my beliefs.

3. Which song is your current favorite?

I don’t really listen to a lot of music whatsoever, so I’m limited to what’s on the radio. ¬†I do really like that rockabye baby don’t you cry I’m gonna rock you¬†song that goes something like that. ¬†I don’t know the name or who sings it though!

4. Have many books do you want to read in 2017?

I set my goal for 25, which is up 5 from what I read last year. ¬†I’ve started reading¬†listening to audiobooks which should help up that number, and I also have dedication to my blog, which should help.

5. If you had to live in a house built from books, which books will you choose to have the roof made from? (Weird Question)

Okay so now I really have to think about this. ¬†A house built from books? the roof would have to be something big and strong I guess. ¬†Oh I’ve got it! ¬†War and Peace, because¬†it’s impossible to get through. ¬†The rain and snow would get bored trying to create a leak in my house, and just have to leave.

My Nominees…

I’m going to start out naming a few people whose blogs I love and follow, and then take a page from Kourtni’s book and nominate a few recent followers/people who have been super active on my blog to thank you guys and mix it up since 10-20 is A LOT of people.

  1. Kourtni 
  2. Kristen
  3. MJ
  4. Roisin
  5. Matxi
  6. Rakel
  7. Annmarie McQueen
  8. CravenWild
  9. Nostalgia Diaries
  10. Swetlana (since your blog name is almost the same as mine)
  11. Closet Readers

If you guys were already nominated for this, sorry! and if you don’t want to do the tag, that’s fine. ¬†For those of you that DO end up doing this, please share your links below I’d love to read!

Your Questions…

  1. Do you prefer series or standalone novels?
  2. Do you read library books/used books? ¬†If so what’s your favorite part about them?
  3. Have you ever considered ditching your blog?
  4. Who is one person in life that you absolutely could not live without?
  5. Weird Question Time!!  If you had to make a cake out of books, which one would you choose for each layer, and what flavor would each of the books have?

My Best Post…

I really don’t think I have a favorite post ever, but I’m really proud of Censoring Society¬†and How School Devalues Reading because I think they both highlight important issues that are oftentimes overlooked in our society.

 

Yay I think I’ve finally included everything!! Hope you guys liked this tag, and I can’t wait to read everyone’s replies to my questions!! (PS thank you to Emma¬†for making me the amazing header and signoff!!!!)

I was Nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Yay!! I’m so excited to say that I got nominated by Anna @ My Little Corner for the Versatile Blogger Award! ¬†Thank you so much Anna… I adore your blog and everything you’ve done in the time you’ve been blogging, and so it means a lot!!! ¬†I think this is the first award I’ve been nominated for, so that’s awesome!

the-versatile-blogger-award

Rules…

  1. Display Award. Done!
  2. Thank the person who gave this award (and include a link to their blog.) Look up!
  3. Share seven things about yourself. Oh god this is going to be hard
  4. Nominate bloggers.¬†and this is going to be even harder…

 

7 things about me…

  1. I love basketball. ¬†It’s my biggest passion and the thing that takes up the most of my time. ¬†Also, I’m going to college to play!
  2. I’m trying to write a novel, but I keep oscillating between three ideas and so I can’t really get anywhere with any of them.
  3. I love editing. ¬†I know that sounds really weird, but reading back over my work (or other people’s) to find grammar errors and places where I can change words to make them sound better is really fun for me.
  4. I’m vegetarian! In 5th grade, I starting being a pescatarian, then in 7th a vegetarian, and now I try to be vegan as much as possible, but I cheat by eating cheese on pizza, and indulging in desserts. (because what’s life without junk food)
  5. I’m starting to run out of things to say and I still have so many more….. Skiing is one of my favorite hobbies, but I’m not allowed to go anymore because I might hurt myself for basketball.
  6. My favorite authors are JK Rowling, Gillian Flynn, Stephen King, and Jodi Picoult, which I find ironic because they all write for different genres. ¬†I guess that shows that I really do enjoy pretty much anything! It’s also strange because I’ve only reviewed 2 of their books (combined) on this blog, but I think that’s because I’ve read most of them either before I started, or on my blogging break.
  7. Last one!! Okay, here we go. ¬†I can’t stand wearing makeup unless it’s mascara. ¬†Even then, I sometimes forget to put it on. ¬†I’m not sure why, I just have better things to do I guess. ¬†Besides mascara, the only other makeup I’ve ever worn is eyeliner, which I do occasionally to look nice. ¬†When I watch all those makeup tutorials or go to a beauty blog, it stresses me out!

And Now for the Super Great Nominations…

It was really hard to narrow down which bloggers deserve this award out of how many amazing ones there are out there. ¬†If you’ve already been nominated for this award, sorry for tagging you again!!
