Tag: Unique Blogger Award (Take 4)

I was nominated by Thrice Read and Princess of Pages for the Unique Blogger Award! Thank you so much for the nominations! ❤ ❤

If you’re interested, you can see the previous takes herehere, and here!

RULES:

  • Display the award!
  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  • Answer the questions they’ve written for you!
  • Nominate 8-13 bloggers and give them three questions in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity within our blogging family!

3 questions from Thrice Read:

Why do you blog? What is the driving force behind your decision to continue to blog?
I blog because I just love talking about books so much. ❤ And I continue to blog because I love the book blogging community so much. ❤

How do you determine what you’re going to read next?
I usually plan out my blog posts a couple months in advance, so if all goes according to plan, I read whatever needs to be reviewed next. If I’m good on reviews for the next couple weeks, I can read whatever I feel like, which usually ends up being something from the library or something from one of my many piles. Sometimes I can get completely derailed, though, and that’s what happened over the last couple weeks. Now I’m kind of marathoning ARCs so that I can get their reviews out before publication.

What book will you always remember? Why?
I read a lot of books, so they tend to blend together over time. The ones that I remember really well are usually the ones that I’ve had strong opinions about and talked about a lot with other people. So, some examples: Nevernight, The Catcher in the Rye, The Pawn, and All Of This Is True.


3 questions from Princess of Pages:

Have you ever been to a book signing? If so, who?
I have been to a book signing event, but I didn’t get anything signed because I was so unprepared! I just ran out of my house when I saw on Twitter that it was happening! I just stayed for the author talk part since the actual “talk to the authors” part was ticketed and limited to eighteen and younger. (Why am I old.) The authors that were there were Emily X.R. Pan, Anica Mrose Rissi, Nisha Sharma, Claire Legrand, Laurie Harrison, and Cordelia Jensen. Megan McCafferty was also there, but I don’t think she was signing. I did a whole post about it here.

If you were stranded on an island, what crew would you want to be with you? Pick 4 book characters

  • Mia Corvere from Nevernight, because she would protect me from anything scary on the island.
  • Connor Cobalt from Kiss the Sky (and many other books), because he could probably just make a phone call and get us off the island.
  • Sam from Emergency Contact, because I feel like he would be able to distract me from the disaster around me until help arrived.
  • Lennon Mackenzie from Starry Eyes, because he would probably actually know how to survive on the island.

What are your top reads you think everyone should read?
I don’t know that there are many books that everyone should read, since everyone has different reading tastes. That said, here are some books I’d recommend:

  • If you’re interested in social justice and race relations in America: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
  • If you like banter and enemies-to-lovers romances: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
  • If you want to read about a badass assassin and her not-cat: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

My questions:

  1. What’s a book that you wish got more attention?
  2. What are your hobbies aside from reading and blogging?
  3. What’s your most anticipated release for the rest of the year?

It’s time for nominations!

      Mia really is the answer to everything!

      And it usually just works out that way! I’m really behind on posts right now (I’m still trying to finish an ARC for a review this week😭😭) and it’s stressing me out! But usually I plan out when I’m going to post ARC reviews and schedule other posts around that.

        hahaha!! MIA, MIA!

        That’s a good idea. I usually put what memes I’m doing in my planner. How far in advance do you schedule posts? I am working really hard to start scheduling a lot. There’s some crazy things that might happen and I want to have at least some content.
        It’s the worst when you have to read and review a book and it’s due that week! Especially, if it’s not particularly a good book. Is yours?

        Right now, my furthest scheduled post is on 9/12. I usually have posts scheduled a lot further in advance than that, though! I usually do my TTT posts ahead of time, every Saturday I have a Weekly Update, then I have the posts I do at the beginning or end of each month (page count, monthly favorites, Monthly Motif) and I fill in other reviews around those and ARCs. I’ve been working on a discussion post about how I plan out my blog for like two months… hopefully it’ll be done soon!

        The book I’m reading is okay, but I don’t love it and I keep getting distracted by other things. Like I got a book from the library over the weekend that I would much rather be reading… so I might just read a couple chapters of that… but then I’ll be even more behind in this book… somehow I always find a way to finish books on time, so I’ll get there.

        My TTT are the ones that I’m really starting to do in advance! Awesome, I look forward to reading that. I used to just do my posts the day before and I think doing them in advance has really helped!

        Ohhh, I hate when that happens!!! I am in one ARC right now and then I’m done! I can’t wait to take a break from ARC’s for the time being. You got this though! 🙂

        Thank you! I think I have 3 ARCs after this one and then I’m done for a long time! Two of them are under 200 pages so I’m hoping I can finish them by the end of the month. Then I can spend September focusing on the many piles of books that I’ve recently (or not so recently) bought. 😊

        I hope you enjoy your ARC break too!!

        Yeah, you are almost there then! SO… funny story. I had requested a few books on Edelweiss a while ago. Two of them were approved two hours ago. LOL! They are two that I want to read and hoping to finish them this week. Then September can be all mine again. haha.

        They are hard! I was approved for two books through the same publisher than denied me one last week! So weird. I got What if it’s Us and Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy!

    Sigh. I too would like to be stuck on an island with Connor Cobalt but I don’t think I would actually *want* him to get us off that island. I would bore him though as I’m definitely not up to his standards of intellect! 😉

    I agree with you re. THUG. Awesome book and definitely worth a recommendation!
