I’m utterly speechless, the fact that I have received this nomination from other bloggers who deemed my blog and its content worthy enough of this award means the world. Books and blogging is a passion of mine and this recognition by receiving not one but TWO nominations is complete madness to me.
I would like to thank Riddhi @ Whispering Stories for nominating me for the Black Cat Blue Sea Award, and I would like to thank Cherelle @ Cherelle the Bibliophile for nominating me for the Liebster Award!
I can’t thank you enough, and it is an absolute pleasure to receive the nominations from incredible book bloggers such as yourselves. Guys do yourself a favor and check out their amazing blogs!

▪️If any of the questions asked are offending or the nominee simply does not want to answer them, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.
What is the one thing you like and dislike about my blog?
I really like the variety in the blog, you’ve got reviews, discussions, tags, and loads of other miscellaneous posts that keeps the visitor engaged.
As for the dislike..if I had to answer I would say just changing the color font of the subtitle of the blog (literally couldn’t find any other fault so I had to go with something 🙈)
What are your 5 all-time favourite songs?
Why do you do this to me!? Might as well write up different genres because I literally listen to everything but some of my faves include songs written by The Neighborhood, Dua Lipa, The Weeknd, Joji, Jorja Smith.
Which language would you like to learn completely?
Russian and French!

What was your most recent 5 star read?
Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman
This was a short less than a day read but it’s one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. It’s a collection of Einstein’s fictional stories about time.
What is your most anticipated release for 2021?
The Thursday Murder Club 2 by Richard Osman
I recently read and reviewed the first one (which was published this year!) and I absolutely loved it. So I cannot wait to get my hands on book 2!
What is the first book that comes to your mind when I say “toothpaste”? (p.s. there is no meaning behind this question)
How to be a Lady by Alexandra Parsons
Okay so I think of toothpaste, I think of brushing up and making your self look neat hence the book How to be a Lady comes to mind. Weird? Nonsense? I’ll leave that up to you 😂
Pair two book characters from two different books/series to make the ultimate ship !
Jacks from Caraval and Tayrn from The Folk of Air. Both have loved people who did not love them back and I feel if anyone would understand Jacks mind games it would be Tayrn. On the other hand, Jacks definitely knows how to feel like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
What is the one book that you will never get bored of?
Last Chance by Sarah Dessen
This is my go to feel good book, it never fails to put a smile on my face.
Which fictional character (can be books, movies) do you admire?
Hermoine Granger. One prominent character I’ll never forget from my childhood to this day. She was this avid reader who was a proud nerd and despite all of the mocking she gets, never did she change for anyone.
Favorite place to read?
I have a “reading chair” in my bedroom opposite my shelves. Perfect.
Favourite blog post that you have ever written (add a link as well so I can read it)?
A couple… I’ll add my wrap up post so you can see my top 5!
What is the prettiest book cover that you own?
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them : The Illustrated Collector’s Edition by J.K. Rowling
The cover illustration is basically a gorgeous water color painting 😍
What would you do if you were invisible for a day?
Oh man I would probably visit all of the historical sights and museums that are on my bucket list because you get to beat the line and have all access to everything! 😂 Also, I would probably tour inside a secret intelliengce agency (FBI don’t mind me nothing to see here 👀) I’m so intrigued on the behind scenes of what goes down back there criminal wise.
Count the number of letters of “Liebster” + the date you do the tag + the first digit of the page number you stopped at in the book you are currently reading(e.g if you’re on 56, take ‘5’) along your bookshelf… tell us which book it lands on! (I fully understand if you want to skip the question)
Not sure if I did this right but I got the number 24, and on my physical bookshelf the book that it lands on is Happily Ever After by Kiera Cass; The Selection’s after-ending!
