I was nominated by the lovely Noriko to do this award that I’ve never heard of or seen around in the blogging world. Noriko and I have become really close friends since we met months ago. We talk on a regular basis via social media (it’s a wonderful thing) and I’ve just come to consider her one of my closest confidantes. I’m really glad I was nominated for this award by her because she asks some really good questions. I know I’m a slacker where tags and awards are concerned but, like I said, these are good questions so I can’t resist answering them. Here we go:
This tag was created by Shanah from Bionic Book Worm. All of the graphics used belong to her.
I was tagged by two of my favorites to do the Fall Book Tag: Mischenko at ReadRantRock&Roll and Claire at Brizzlelass Books. I decided to focus only on books I’ve read this year cause I imagine I may get tagged in this next year and I’ll have a new set of books to recommend (beg you to read) by then. 😉
I was so graciously tagged by Claire at Brizzlelass Books for this fun award! If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you should. She’s an avid book blogger who is very engaging with her audience and a cool person. 🙂 So here’s the thing. I have amassed quite an MP3 collection over the years in my Google Play music account and I used to put it on shuffle while driving to and from work. But then my husband bought Tidal and now I just listen to whole albums or NPR on the way to work and Pandora at work. So I went into said Google Play account and hit the shuffle button to see what happens. Here are the rules and following those are my songs chosen by a robot.
My favorite monkey has tagged me in her new debut, awesomesauce tag! It’s pretty self explanatory so here we go:
“Your Majesty, this is a magic suit” – An Overhyped Book That Promised to be *Something More*
The entire Twilight Series. I only read it because it was hyped up so much. I enjoyed the first book but that was the beginning and end of Twilight for me. And I won’t even get started on the movies. I still don’t know why I watched them; probably the hypeness.
- Announce your win with a post, and link the blogger who nominated you.
- Include the featured image on your blog post.
- Nominate 10 bloggers (or as many as you can think of) and link your awardees in the post.
- List 7 things you love about yourself. (This can be about your appearance, your personality, your achievements, etc.)
- Don’t use negative connotation (i.e. Don’t say things like – “I’m prettier than an average person.” or “People have told me I’m smart.” You are pretty. You are smart.)
The beautiful, amazing, wonderful, fantastic Roda@Growing Self, nominated me for this award a ways back and since I can’t think of anything else to write today except for my toilet installation (not sure if you all would want to see pictures of that), I chose this instead.
I’m making an exception to my never-having-time-to-do-tags anymore to do a tag by one of my favorite bloggers and friend, Mischenko. She has so graciously nominated me for both of these awards plus I like the title because I like to think I’m a lovely mystery on occasion. Anyway, thank you Mischenko. You obviously know how inspiring you are to me; especially when it gets me gifted with expensive blenders 😉
I haven’t done a tag in while (cause I just have way too many stories to tell) and I actually had a story lined up for today but I saw this tag floating around and I remember Patty tagging me a long time ago (sorry!) so I decided to join in the tag fun instead.
I recently decided not to post on the weekends because I’m so behind on my Goodreads challenge I figured I’d be able to devote more time to reading if I cut back on my posting. I still interact and read all of your posts, I just don’t post any of my own. I’ve been nominated for quite a few awards over the past few weeks. I’m also behind on those and I want to say I apologize for that and admit that I’m probably not going to catch up on them if they aren’t book related (please don’t hate me).
I was nominated by my beautiful friend Noriko to do this tag a while ago (sorry!) and I’m finally getting around to doing it. Thank you Noriko for making me think about dusting off my TBR shelf. One day I’ll actually do it 😉
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
My favorite internet librarian has graciously tagged me in a neat bookish tag that of course I had to do because I can’t deny her anything. If you have not met theorangutanlibrarian by now, well, I don’t know what to tell you except to give you this look that screams “you have a problem and you need to fix it now.” She was one of my first 10 followers and my 1000th comment (which btw, I’m quickly coming up on the 3000 mark orangutan so I hope you’re ready!). I could wax poetic about how fantastic her blog is and how much she’s made my blogging experience great but that pretty much sums it up so I hope you visit and follow her site because she’s truly brilliant!
