The Versatile Blogger Award #3

The-Versatile-Blogger-Award

Hey guys!

I was tagged by the lovely Aria from Snow White Hates Apples. Take a second and go check out her amazing blog. You won’t be disappointed. And thanks again for nominating me for this award!!


RULES
  1. Show the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the person that has nominated you.
  3. Share 7 different facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 blogs of your choice.
  5. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.

7 Facts About Me!

1) I study editing in school and hope to one day work for a publishing house. I originally wanted to work in the marketing department, but life sucked and I didn’t get accepted. So editing was my plan B! (Always have a plan B!)

2) I still love to play the Pokemon games. And I am not talking about Pokemon GO. I am talking old school and new school games for the Nintendo systems. My favorite game is Pokemon Crystal. I cannot wait to get my hands on the new Pokemon Sun and Moon!

3) I hate the summer heat! In fact, summer is my least favorite season of the year. Thankfully I live in Canada and we only get to experience Summer for 3 months of the year! Bring on the cooler weather please.

4) I have zero artistic talent. I cannot draw for the life of me. At the age of 24 I can still only draw stick figures and clouds. *singletear*

5) I drink more tea in a day then I do water. I know that is bad… but I can’t help it. If you love me, you’ll bring me a cup of tea. Black with a little milk and two sugars!

6) My eyes are light brown most of the year. But in some lights and certain times of the year they appear green. I guess I can thank my mother and her seagreen eyes for that!

7) I have small feet. I am a US size 6 in men’s shoes (which doesn’t exist), and a US size 8 in ladies shoes. So I tend to buy my shoes in the boys department or the women’s department. Is this a good thing? I’m not sure!


I TAG YOU

The Liebster Award | Books at Dawn

The-Liebster-Award

Hey guys!

I was nominated by the lovely Amanda from My Books Opinion and Deanna from A Novel Glimpse for The Liebster Award. I just want to take the time to thank these ladies for the nomination. It really means a lot!

The purpose of The Liebster Award is to award bloggers. It spreads the word, helps you discover new blogs, and build a sense of community in the blogging universe!

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers that you think are deserving of the award
  • Let the bloggers know you nominated them
  • Give them 11 questions of your own

I was asked

How many books do you read per week and what is your goal for this year?

I can read an average of 1-2 books a week depending on the size. I tend to read multiple books at once because I am a huge book polygamist. I get bored when reading the same book consecutively.

My reading goal this year is set at 5o books. I was able to read 89 last year I believe which is insane. I don’t know how I did it. But I hope to at least hit my goal and more if I can this year!

How many book boyfriends do you have?

Well I have 3 main book boyfriends:

Magnus Damora (FK), Magnus Bane (TMI), and Kaz Brekker (SoC)

But I really could make a top 10 list. There is just so many!

What are the books that you are ashamed that you didn’t read?

I hear a lot of great things about these series’ and I promise I will get to them eventually. Maybe even this year!

What would you do if your friend lost a book that you lent to her/him?

I wouldn’t be happen that’s for sure. But books are replaceable, good friends are hard to come by. I’m sure they wouldn’t have lost it on purpose so I would just forgive them. I wouldn’t lend them any more books… but I’d still forgive them!

What is a book that you loved but hated the movie adaptation?

I don’t really hate the movie adaptations to books. I mean they only have 2 hours or so to fit all they can in. And of course it’s going to be a bit different then the book. So I don’t hate. But I did find Mortal Instruments: City of Bones to be lacking a bit!

What book describes you the most? Why?

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

This is literally my life… Everyone is totally hanging out without me because I prefer to stay in and read! HAHA. Bookworm problems….

What books made you stay up all night to finish it?

I honestly have so many troubles staying up at night to read a book… but I did this one in one sitting!

The Fault in Our Stars

If you had to choose between walking and reading, what would you choose?

Wow. Brutal.

Can I pick a loophole and choose walking, then learn to read as well? If not then I choose reading to be honest. I hate audio books!

What character would you want to be?

Hermoine

The most powerful muggle born witch there is: Hermoine! I’ve stated before how much I want to be her twin brother and be the two most powerful wizards the world has ever seen!

Did you ever cry in public while reading a book?

No… I still have yet to shed tears for a book. I’ve come close to crying, but I tend to keep it internal.

A character that you want to punch in the face?

Just one? Let me list a few:

Jacob Black (Twilight), Agatha (Carry On), Eleanor and Park (Eleanor & Park), Mare Barrow (Red Queen), Octavia au Lune (Red Rising), Chaol (Throne of Glass), Rhys (ACOTAR), Mal (Shadow and Bone), Cinder (Cinder), King Gaius (Falling Kingdoms), Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter)


My Questions to You

  1. What is the first book you’ve ever fangirled over?
  2. Name an author who you will always auto buy from. Even if the book is blank.
  3. What is the last movie you have seen in theaters?
  4. Which book do you regret buying?
  5. Which one of your 5 senses can you live without: sight, smell, touch, hearing, taste? Why?
  6. What book would you like to see as a movie?
  7. With wanting more diversity in books nowadays, what is one aspect you believe should be represented more and why?
  8. Hero, Assassin, or Prince/Princess? You can only pick one. Which do you choose to be in a story with you as the main character?
  9. Pick 6 of your favorite characters and pretend they were in a horror movie. Only one will be the survivor, four of them will die, and the other one will be the killer. Who is the survivor, the killer and in what order did the others die in?
  10. Your favorite author is going to call you for a once in a lifetime chance to talk. You can only ask them one question. Who is the author and what is the question? Why?
  11. In your opinion who is the worst literary couple ever?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my answers to the questions! And sorry if I want to punch one of your favorite characters. It’s nothing personal!

Until next time,

Sig New

October 2015 Wrap Up | Books at Dawn

October-Wrap-UpHey guys!

This past month has been a bit of cat and mouse for me. My first full month back home and I had a lot of things to play catch up with. Family, friends, blog, job, reading etc. It was quite hectic and in my opinion, not my most successful month in terms of blogging and reading.

I’m actually quite curious to see how things went this month, although I’m not too optimistic about it. But let’s see, maybe I’ll surprise myself!

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. MaasOctober 12th

4 books isn’t so bad seeing as how 3 of them are off my TBR from the beginning of the month! You can check that out HERE

The Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman4/5

I have been in a real rut lately when writing reviews. Hopefully I can triple the amount of reviews for next month because 2 is just sad.

September 2015 Wrap Up | Books at Dawn

September-Wrap-UpHey guys!

Would you look at that. Another month has come and gone. This past month has been so hectic and busy that I had to disappear from the blogging world for a bit. As most of you guys know, I recently just moved back to my home city of Toronto. I literally landed yesterday afternoon and all I’ve been doing is cleaning, unpacking, and throwing out the clutter of my old room. (Yes I moved back in with my parents. Because they love me and they don’t charge rent)

So now that I’m settling in and have a little time to write up a blog post, I thought I would do my September wrap up. It’s not going to be as grand as my August one… but at least it’s something.
