The Liebster Award Ü


Thanks for nominating me Camille of TheGirlMeetsBooks

The Liebster Award is a great way to feature new blogs and to get to know new book bloggers in the process. There are variations as to the guidelines of how to proceed with this award but here are the basics:
1. Link back to the person/blog who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions they set for the blogs they nominated.
3. List 11 facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 blogs (preferably those with less than 200 followers)
and be sure to let them know with a link to your post.
5. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.


1. Who’s your current book boyfriend? — This would definitely be Prince Theron of Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch. I still can’t find any fan art of him, but this is most likely how he looks like..

“Same tall build, same golden hair, same dark-brown eyes. But this man isn’t old enough to have gray in his hair; he’s only a few years older than me, and his skin is smooth, sporting just a patch pf stubble on his chin. He’s much more handsome than Noam too, not quite as harsh, like he’s more apt to sing a ballad than lead a kingdom.”
Lady Meira of the Winter Kingdom
(Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch)



2. What was your favorite read for 2014? — I can’t pick one so I’ve listed the first eight books that came to mind. I love love love these books! Let the photo do the talking. 🙂

The Addictive Blog Award

Thanks for nominating me Odelia of The Random Book Blogger

LineI can’t remember when I really started blogging. Before, I used to blog about my adventures. Places I’ve gone to, food that I’ve tried, people I’ve met and inspired me and the likes. Just this year, I realized I’ve been hoarding books, staying in doors and reading more (Oh my! Is this a sign that I’m getting old? LOL!). So I decided to turn my adventure blog to a book blog. I’ve started it April and actively blogging about books June, I think, so that’s more or less six months. Why I started blogging eh? I’m just a restless soul. I can’t last a day without sharing ideas and just talking about stuff. So talkative in nature. I talk about almost everything. Not the gossip type though.

When everybody seemed to be busy running their own lives (my friends really), I sat in front of my computer, ideas in mind, started typing things on a notepad and thought of starting my own blog. Pretty crazy right? I surf the internet almost everyday reading stuff and realized most of my friends got Tumblr so I came up with my very first blog on Tumblr too. Not the fancy one. Just pouring what’s in my head, realized that it’s getting so boring then I deleted it. Lol. Got a hundred blogs all over the internet. I deleted most of them, forgot the passwords to some and this is the only blog I’ve kept. I’m enjoying my book blog experience so far ’cause of the fellow book lovers I’ve met and became friends. Hoping to meet a lot more in the future. 😀

Note: If I nominated you for other awards other than this, you can skip this if you like, but the list below are the blogs I stalk everyday so it’s really up to you if you want to do this or not.

Goodreads Choice Awards 2014: Best Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction Category

I’m currently in a dilemma. They won’t let me vote for multiple books. Just one and you need to move on to the next category. Am I the only one  having this problem or everybody is not as fickle minded as I am? If these are your choices, would you immediately choose one?

I’m staring at it for a good couple of hours now and I can’t still decide which to vote. I initially voted Cress, then cleared it. Voted for Lux and changed my mind again. Oh God! This is as hard as choosing a gown for prom or deciding whether to eat a lot or go on a diet. Perhaps you could help me. Comments and suggestions would be much appreciated. 😀

Seven Facts About Me

1.  I hate airplane rides. I prefer taking a ship, ferry or anything afloat. Why? ‘Cause I’m Poseidon’s daughter so I’m Percy’s sister. Kidding 🙂 Simple. When the airplane decided to crash.. I can’t fly. When the ship decided to sink.. Hell Yeah! I can swim. Olympic Athlete Style. Hahaha! I think that’s a pretty basic logic.

2. I prefer flops than wearing shoes. It’s a good thing that I’m living in a tropical country or that would be a problem. I don’t even have heels, but I have a total of more or less 50 flops and still counting. Can’t have enough. 🙂

3. Can’t sleep without a blanket wrap around my legs. I don’t care if it’s 50 degrees outside, but I’m not sleeping without it. Continue reading
