Real Neat Blog Award!

Hello, fellow book junkies! Today I’d like to give a shoutout  to Jess @ JBelkbooks,  who’s super smart, really knows her books, and kindly nominated me for the “Real Neat Blog Award.” Please check out Jess’ biblio-terrific blog!


1. Thank and link the blogger that nominated you.

2. Answer the 7 questions that the nomination has provided you.

3. Create 7 questions for your nominees.

4. Nominate 7 other bloggers. (Oh my, is that a 7-7-7? Must be your lucky day!)”


1.) Would you rather read a novel with a heartbreaking ending or a cliffhanger ending?
I would much rather have a good novel cry than face a cliffhanger ending.

2.) How’s your 2016 going? (wonderful, horrible [i hope not], etc.)
In many ways, 2016 is progressing beautifully. 🙂

3.) I like food. So what’s one of your favorite meals?
Korean food.

4.) Coffee or tea?
I’d be a pitiful mess without my 1-2 cups of morning coffee so, as delightful as tea is, I choose coffee.

5.) What are a few of your go-to bookstores (online or in-store)?
If I could, I would buy all my books brand new, but since my pocketbook simply refuses to comply with this aim, is my absolute go-to for used books. For new books, I use and Barnes & Noble (if I have a gift card).

6.) Do you have a favorite classic? If not, give a random fact.
I love so many classics that it’s hard to choose, but I’ll go with Pride and Prejudice because it’s. . .um. . . perfect.

7.) What’s one place you would like to travel to in the future?
Europe, Europe, Europe.

Please feel free to ignore if you simply aren’t interested or you’ve already completed this award. However, I just wanted to make the blogging community aware that you are a neat blogger! If you do decide to accept, below are the questions for you to answer:

1.)Sometimes a book grows on us long after we’re done reading it, and we realize it was actually much better than when we first rated it. Has this happened to you, and which book was it?

2.)What’s the scariest novel you’ve ever read?

3.)What is the most boring book you ever had to read for school?

4.) Do you speak more than language? If so, which ones?

5.)Have you ever had a dream in which a book character appeared?

6.) What are the next three books on your TBR list?

7.)When you think of your favorite books, what are the first two to come to mind?

      • 😀 I’m just gonna answer them here though, as I think I just did this one myself recently. So:

        1. I don’t think this has ever happened to me, honestly–usually it’s the OTHER way around, and I find after a given amount of time that I don’t like the book as much as I thought when I rated it.

        2. Oh boy. Let’s see…probably…pretty much anything from Stephen King (man has serious horror chops!) and also… The Suffering (The Girl from the Well, #2) by Rin Chupeco.

        3. Moby Dick. I couldn’t even get past page 2. Definitely did not waste my time forcing myself to read it lol–oops?

        4. I speak a very LITTLE amount of Spanish. But…uhm… I wouldn’t count that.

        5. Yes! I don’t recall which character now, though I know this happened rather recently. Hmm… I wish I could remember! I wouldn’t be surprised if this has happened more than once, honestly.

        6. Let’s see…Adaline, by Denise Kawaii; The Princess Diaries (Book 1), by Meg Cabot; and…I honestly don’t know after that, because I’m participating in a reading challenge and have no clue what prompts I’ll be given next!

        7. First two as of this moment right now: The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern…and…The Love that Split the World, by Emily Henry.
