Saturdays seem to have defaulted to my awards and tags day. I’ve still got a couple to get to over the next few weeks as well! The blog love is much appreciated. ❤️
I was nominated for The Unique Blogger award by Misty at Misty’s Book Space. Thank you so much Misty for the nomination. If you aren’t already following Misty’s blog you should definitely check it out. Her site is a visual breath of fresh air and her reviews are very insightful.
- Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
- Answer the questions.
- In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
- Ask them 3 questions.
1.) You are in the bookstore and you see someone walking around for an hour looking at all the books looking lost. Finally, you decide to ask them if they need help. They admit they have no idea what book to read next, what book would you recommend?
Well, it would depend on how old the person is and their likes or even more importantly, their dislikes.
- For a person ages 7-11, I may recommend any of the Enid Blyton books I loved as a child e.g. Famous Five, The Faraway Tree, The Wishing Chair or Mallory Towers.
- For an older child or teenager I’d recommend Harry Potter or Hardy Boys/ Nancy Drew
- An adult cozy mystery fan: Any book by Jana De Leon or my recent favourite: Seashells, Spells and Caramels by Erin Johnson
- For something whimsical: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- A Classic: My tried and true, never fail me: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
You know this list could go on and on and on….
2.) Imagine you get the opportunity to go back in time, maybe a mad scientist has figured out the technology, who knows? Anyway, the only thing is you need to feed the contraption a classic book and you travel to the time that it was written. What book would you feed that machine?
I guess Georgian England would be interesting… But I’d have to be a member of the ton. No labouring away on someone else’s great estate, thank you! Also I like my copy of Pride and Prejudice too much to feed it to any machine, so it can have my copy of Mansfield Park instead 😄
3.) You are in the library and you see someone reading at a table. Then you see the worst thing imaginable…. they are doing your bookish pet-peeve. What are they doing to that poor book?!
Flattening the open book and resting it upside down to hold their place. **Shudder** Or worse, folding back a soft cover book to focus on the page they are currently reading 😱.
My questions for you:
I’m pretty happy with these questions… and also a bit too pressed for time to make up new ones. So I’d like you to answer the same ones if you choose to do this tag.
Usual Disclaimer: Don’t feel like you have to do this but please link back to share your answers, if you do.
Have a good weekend!
