Unique Blogger Award

I was (unofficially ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) nominated for this award by Nandini, who has a wonderful, insightful blog at Unputdownable Books (welcome back!!) so let’s get into it!

Here are the rules of the game:

  1. Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you
  2. Answer the questions
  3. In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award
  4. Ask them 3 questions

Nandini’s Questions:

1) What is your reading routine like? Do you read at a particular time in a particular place or do you squeeze in a few pages whenever you can and carry your books everywhere with you?

I used to have a long commute to school so I’d read on the bus (which I’ll still do if I’m ever on a long trip). But right now it’s mostly a few pages before bed – it doesn’t always work out cuz I’m usually too tired!

2) Which book has been on your TBR the longest? Do you still plan to read it or is it time to bid adieu?

I actually just went through my Goodreads TBR and trimmed it down but the oldest one is still there (though I think there are probably ones that have been on my ‘imaginary’ TBR longer but I can’t think of them). I’ve had The Book Thief on my list since 2009 (when I first created my Goodreads account!) and I’d really like to read it but I’ve never gotten around to it! I’ll probably try this summer when I’ve got some time off from school.

3) What is your most cherished bookish moment of 2017?

This is a tough one! 2017 was my first full year of blogging so a lot happened and I don’t know if I can pick just one! I met a bunch of other bloggers and hosted author chats on Twitter so met even more people through those. Oneย kind of bookish moment is that my all-time fave, Sara Bareilles, liked one of my Instagram photos!!!! I know that’s not really book-related but it is my blog’s Instagram account so it totally counts!


Thank you again to Nandini for these great questions, and now on to the next round! Here’s who I’m nominating for this award:

Angela @ Egg Reader

Erin @ Bluestocking Bookworm

Christina @ You Book Me All Night Long

Hannah @ Sprinkled With Words

Naty @ Naty’s Bookshelf

Karen @ Run Wright

Zoรซ @ If The Book Will Be Too Difficult

Taylor @ Stay on the Page

And here are your questions:

  1. What’s one goal you have for your blog in 2018?
  2. Do you tend to read based on the seasons, like certain genres for winter or summer? If not, what are your go-to genres that are guaranteed hits for you?
  3. What’s your favourite book title (whether or not you liked/read the book)?

  1. Hey if I nominated you in the comments, it’s still official because there’s a written record. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Your answers were so much fun to read! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Of course you can interpret the questions however you want and your #3 was awesome! I totally understand how that feels. Rick Riordan replied to one of my tweets last year and I died. I mean, I still mention it whenever I can so I’m clearly not over it. ๐Ÿ˜‚
    The Book Thief was on my TBR for a long time too. I finished it in November last year and I liked it, but not as much as everyone else. I’m behind on reviews from 2017, so you’ll be seeing an in-depth one in the coming weeks. But I’d definitely recommend reading it. It’s a very important book about the conditions in WWII Germany and as book lovers, we can all relate with the main character.
    I totally get being too exhausted to read! That’s hopefully going to change for me soon, but I’ve only read 2 books this year and I’m not pleased about my progress. I wish I had more time and more energy for books and blogging in general.
    Great post and very intriguing questions as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Haha I like that – if it’s in writing, it counts!
      That is so cool about Rick Riordan, I think you have every right to mention it whenever you can ๐Ÿ˜›
      I think I saw you posting your progress with The Book Thief on Twitter so I look forward to your thoughts! I almost wanted to start it with the new year but it’s a longish book and I’m not sure I can balance that with school so I’ll have to keep putting it off ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Soon though!
      Thank you so much for your kind words!
