Holy Awards and Tags Batman!- Mini Update (August 2016)

I’ve fallen behind a bit. I just moved two hours away from my old place to my new place, closer to family and friends. Now comes the unpacking and finding all my stuff that has been missing for weeks, haha.

In falling behind, I’ve noticed I was nominated for a lot of Liebster awards and tagged in the Blogger Recognition tag and the Sunshine Blogger Award. I’m sorry to those who tagged me, I did notice. I just couldn’t get to them yet!

Thank you to Tripping the Page FantasticSleepless Book JunkiesThe Catcher in the Book and A Pretty Wonderful Book for nominating me for a Liebster award. I was already nominated this year so I can’t play again but it means a lot to me to be nominated again. It is much appreciated!

I promise to A Thousand LivesThe Mystery CornerThe Misstery and Shameeka’s Fictional World that I will get their tags done and up eventually.

Alright, so the other thing is, I’m still steadily working on my to be read pile. I accepted review requests without looking at what I still had to review. Rookie mistake.
I am sorry to authors who are requesting or are waiting to request. I am working on it steadily, but life does eat up some of my reading time. So I promise to the authors still waiting for reviews and those who wish to review, I am working hard at this. I appreciate your patience.

Other than that, onward with my books and reviews!

Book Tags · Nominations

Real Neat Blog Award


I was nominated by the wonderful Novel Gossip for this award. Thank you so much for nominating me!

The rules are as follows:
Thank and link the blogger that nominated you.
Answer the 7 questions that the nomination has provided you.
Create 7 questions for your nominees.
Nominate 7 other bloggers.


Novel Gossip’s Questions for me:

1. Favourite series:
Hmm I would have to say the Shadowfell series. Although there are a couple of runner ups like obviously Harry Potter, The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, annnddd Anita Blake series.




2. Most under appreciated book you’ve read: 
This is a tough one as I do read for indie authors so a lot of those books are under appreciated. It’s a bit tough for me to choose, honestly. There are so many really great authors out there and I’m quite glad that a chunk of them have chosen me to help them gain awareness of their books. 

3. Favourite book you’ve reviewed:
I would have to say my favourite book that I’ve read and reviewed so far this year would be a toss up between Ripping Solace by Gabriela Aguilar and Cora and the Nurse Dragon by H.L. Burke.

4. Favourite book cover:

Well, I would have to pick Mer-Charmer by Amy Bearce. It’s absolutely stunning! 








5. Do you ever borrow books from the library? If so, do you return them on time or late? 
In my hometown I did because the library there was a place of peace. But when I moved to the big city, it never happened. I’m hoping that moving home to live with family that I can pick it back up. And for the record, I usually returned them on time. Sometimes early. If it was late, it was usually due to weather. Or just a really crappy week. 

6. Why did you start your blog? 
Well, first because my friends were always asking me for recommendations and with recommendations came my opinion of said book. So I started the blog to start sharing my love of reading. I first started on Tumblr but didn’t quite like the style there, so researched and chose WordPress. Second, I started it because even though friends ask for recommendations, I honestly have no one else to talk to about books. Everyone else thinks I’m nuts, lol. 

7. Do you have a favourite snack/drink while reading?
Hmm, not really. My morning coffee, haha. I guess that would be it, but my life is pretty much surrounded by books so I rarely think about the snack/drink part. 

My Questions for my Nominees:

  1. What is one of your reading habits?
  2. Where is your favourite place to read?
  3. What are your least favourite genres?
  4. What is your preferred method of reading? Physical book or digital?
  5. In your opinion, which movie that was originally a book was actually good and worth seeing?
  6. Which book had a lot of hype but was utterly disappointing?
  7. What is your favourite book at the moment?

My Nominees: (If you’ve already been awarded/participated or don’t feel like participating, that is okay with me!)

BBF’s Book Tag

Book Tag

I…may or may not have skipped a few. Yup. I’ll link up where the full questions are.
Some I just couldn’t answer. Here is the full BBF’s Book Tag at Drowned with Stars and Books

I was tagged by Rebecca at Nevermind the Furthermore. Thank you so much for the tag!

Setting the example:
A Pair/Group of book BBF’s that you love:

For me, recently, I really enjoyed the BBF’s in Cora and the Nurse Dragon. Cora and Abri were two peas in a pod. I also enjoyed the Abri didn’t see Cora as a servant like others would, but as human being. Even Abri’s parents treated Cora with a great amount of respect.

Childhood bestie:
Which book character would you have liked to grow up with?

I would have loved to have grown up with all the Harry Potter kids. Especially Luna; her personality is so light and adorably awkward.

The bad influence:
Which character would you want to commit a small act of rebellion with?

Tali in the Shadowfell series; she’s badass. But it’d be fun to try to influence her to step outside of her loyalties and let loose.

Blood brothers:
Which character would you want to be your surrogate big brother/sister?

Flint in Shadowfell; he helped Neryn when he didn’t need to and make sure she was nursed back to health.

Mother hen:
Which character would you want by your side when you’re having a bad day to cheer you up?

13 from Ripping Solace by Gabriela Aguilar; he was hilarious.

More than friends:
Who would be your book boyfriend/girlfriend:

I’m a bit of a sucker for the strong, silent type with badass-ery attitudes (who isn’t?!) so I’ll have to go with Rephaim from the House of Night series. He was a raven mocker, so he originally did try to murder them but the kindness of Stevie Rae tamed him a bit. I didn’t give two hoots what happened to Zoey and her endless stream of boyfriends then.
