The Creative Blogger Award

Thank you so much Parneet from The Enchanted Book for nominating me for the Creative Blogger Award! Please give her blog a look! :)

The Rules:

  • Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs
  • Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you (very important)
  • Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers
  • Tell the nominees these rules

5 Facts:

  1. I actually don’t like talking about myself and I’m sure I share this with many others. The facts I had to give in the posts of my other awards were actually hard to come up with. I’m not sure why I’m this way, but I prefer listening to others than talking most of the time. I find I’m the most animated when communicating through the computer and when I’m with people I’ve known for a long time.
  2. One of my favorite sweets is Twizzlers Cherry Pull-N-Peel Licorice. If I didn’t have any self-control I would wolf down an entire package in one go.
  3. When my mom took me to the shoe store as a child I always played with the metal thing used to measure your shoe size. Because of that, I had decided I wanted to measure people’s feet when I grew up. That was my first career choice. I was like, five, so don’t judge me too much…
  4. Recently I’ve been in the mood to attend weddings. My sister got engaged last month but they aren’t actually getting married for two more years. I’ve never been to one before, I’ve only been to funerals, sadly, so I just really want to go to a wedding.
  5.  Two of the things I would like to accomplish in my life include: seeing the Broadway musical of The Lion King and visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.

I’m super lazy at the moment, so I’m going to bend the rules and nominate anyone who reads this post and would like to participate! You deserve it! :D


The Liebster Award

A big thanks to Katandkabookle for nominating me for the Liebster Award! Please go give her block a look! :) This is the second award I’ve received in two days, so I’m extremely happy, and a bit surprised, right now. Let’s just say I’m glad I decided to join the book blogging community! <3


  • Thank the person/people who nominated you with a link to their blog
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions from the blogger/s who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 other blogs who have less than or equal to 3000 followers (this rule changes from blogger to blogger, but for the most part, I tried to stick to those who had under 300 followers)
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions

11 Random Facts About Me…

  1. Growing up, I was considered a tomboy. My style is more’girlish’ now, but most of the time you can still catch me being lazy around the house in basketball shorts and a big t-shirt. My mom still doesn’t like that I’ll occasionally wear that kind of attire out in public.
  2. Besides the Legend of Zelda games, my other two favorites are Halo and Assassin’s Creed.
  3. Inuyasha was the first anime I ever watched.
  4. I am a middle child.
  5. My friend and I have played through a good chunk of the Lego video games, and are absolutely horrible at them. Most of the time it’s because she’s busy blowing stuff up and I’m trying to find a lego animal to ride.
  6. I played the violin for two years back in elementary school.
  7. For one of my clay projects back in high school, I created a clay version of the Monster Book of Monsters from Harry Potter.
  8. The Lion King is my favorite Disney movie.
  9. I started reading comic books about two years ago. My wallet doesn’t love me anymore because of this, since the ones I read come out on a monthly basis (sometimes twice a month).
  10. I have two dogs, a Shih Tzu and a Terrier mix.
  11. I like background noise whenever I’m doing something, like cleaning the house or in the car, but when I read I need absolute peace and quiet.

Questions From Katandkabookle

1. What’s your biggest pet-peeve?
When it comes to books, I would say when a person returns one of my books dogeared. In general, when people are too clingy.

2. How long does it usually take you to finish a book?
It really depends on how long it is and how much I like it. If I’m really enjoying a book I can finish it in two or three days (one if it’s 300 pages or less), but otherwise it would probably take me a week. I have work and am usually catching up on TV shows or binge watching anime, so I’m not always reading in my spare time.

3. If you were to write an autobiography, what would the title be?
All ‘Bout That One Girl

4. What would you do if you won the lottery?
I would travel. Recently I’ve been in a very travel-y mood. Once I got my fill of traveling, however, I would settle down somewhere and open an animal shelter.

5. What is your least favorite book and why?
Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause, because I wasn’t able to connect with any of the characters.

6. Favorite book-to-movie adaptation?
Life of Pi. I think they did a really great job with the movie.

7. What book character is the most like you?
This is a tough one. Hmm…I honestly can’t think of anyone at the moment that I’m very similar with, but I’d like to think I have some things in common with Ginny Weasley.

8. Do you prefer hard-covers or paperbacks?
Paperbacks, because they’re cheaper. Also, I just like the feel of them more.

9. Do you like buying books, or borrowing them out?
Borrowing them. The library is my best friend. Unlike a lot of book lovers, I don’t feel the need to buy every book I read.

10. What was the last book you read?
Tiger’s Quest by Colleen Houck.

11. What is your favorite book cover and why?
I like all the covers to The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. They’re really well done and you get a glimpse of most of the characters.

I want to thank Analee from BookSnacks for nominating me for this award! Like Analee, this is the first time I’ve ever been nominated for an award before, so I really appreciate it! Please check out her blog! (:

  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.

7 Things About Myself:

1. I’ve never seen Star Wars. I’m ashamed, but I do plan on watching the movies sometime this year. Well, that’s my goal anyway…

2. I roleplayed on GaiaOnline for…quite a number of years. Beginning back in 2007 or 2008 I believe. That’s where I met some of my very close online friends. However, I haven’t been active for the past couple of years.

3. I love love LOVE dogs. I have ever since I was little. Whenever I saw one I would point and shout, “DOGGY!” I still do that occasionally…

4. Spider-Man is my all-time favorite comic book hero.

5. I think Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the greatest shows ever.

6. I buy a calendar every year. My current one is called ‘Hot Guys & Baby Animals’. I saw it in a store and was joking about it, then one of my guy friends actually bought it for me for Christmas. I display it proudly.

7. I’ve beaten three of The Legend of Zelda games, including: Twilight Princess, The Wind Waker, and A Link Between Worlds. I played Four Swords Adventures with some of my friends, but never beat it. I’m currently playing Ocarina of Time and I also recently bought Majora’s Mask.

I nominate:

Thanks again, Analee! I feel so special! xD
