The Sunshine Blogger Award, Mystery Blogger Award, and Black Cat Blue Sea Award (Oh My!)

I’m ecstatic to say I’ve been nominated for three new awards! To save your inbox from becoming too crowded, I’m combining them into one post. Thank you very much Ava from Reads, Rhythms, and Ruminations and Not-So-Modern-Girl for nominating me for the Sunshine Award, The Passionist for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award, and Train of Thought from My Bookish Life for nominating me for the Black Cat Blue Sea award.


Sunshine Blogger Award


  1. Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write then 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.


1. How long have you been blogging and how is the experience so far?

I’ve been seriously blogging for about two months now, and I am having a wonderful time! WordPress has a lovely community, and I love writing for such a kind and dedicated audience. I now have 295 followers, which I never expected in this short amount of time!

2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?

The writing- Sometimes I have to cut paragraphs because my posts are just too long!

3. What are your favorite things in life? (There can be many)

Oohhh, let’s see….There are too many things to count, so I’ll stick to five random joys.

  • Cherry chapstick
  • Making others happy
  • The smell of books
  • Going to the theater
  • Writing in the morning

4. Which food do you loathe and why?

Pickles. They smell weird. End of story.

5. Who is your favorite character from a book/anime/movie/TV series?

Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. She’s got guts, style, and wits.

6. Cats or dogs?


Dogs! I’m allergic to cats, but even if I wasn’t, I think it’s obvious dogs are the superior species. They stick their tongues out. They sniff at strange objects on the streets. They bark at inanimate objects. I don’t see how it gets better than that.

7. What is your dream destination? (Can be fictional)

Hogwarts! Of course.

8. Which language do you like the most?

English. Though I’ve taken Spanish, French, and Latin, and think those are all beautiful languages, being an English writer I’m partial to my mother tongue.

9. Which is the longest book/anime/TV series you’ve read/watched and how long is it?

I’d probably say that The Series Of Unfortunate Events is the longest, simply because there are so many novels in the collection. I can’t wait for the new Netflix series.

10. Which is your all time favorite song to listen to?

The Beatle’s Paperback Writer.

11. Your favorite fairytale?

Mulan! It’s got girl power, an overeager and sarcastic dragon, and bob hair cuts.

Hundred Acre Books | Writing and Musing |  Tea with Tumnus | Keky’s Literary World | Accio All the Books | The Girl Who Read Too Much | Brickley Jules Writes

1. If you wish to be something, then what would it be?

2. If you are asked to go to some place freely, where would you go?

I’d go to Sweden, because of their beautiful architecture, inspiring gender and humanitarian political policies, and fantastic chain stores. (Shoutout to Ikea <3)

Teddy, my dog. Obviously.

Saturn, because when I was a little kid, I used to dream about reading on the rings.

Weird and funny question:

Worst Crime you’ve Committed?

I make my dog sneeze. On purpose. I just pet him, and kind of brush my fingers along his nose, and then he does a little disgruntled snort/sneeze. Sorry, but also, not sorry.

  1. Thanks again for nominating me! I think I’ll just answer your questions here. 🙂

    1. What’s your favorite genre? Historical fiction. LOVE IT.

    2. What type of shoes do you swear by? *shrugs* I’m not a shoes girl (or a fashion-in-general girl), so I’ll usually just wear sneakers, casual/slightly dressy black flats, or sensible heels. And I don’t see the need to buy new shoes unless I’ve outgrown/worn out my old ones. 🙂

    3. Shorts or skirts? Skirts. I’ve never worn shorts or pants.
