The Real Neat Blog Award

Hi, everyone! 🙂

I’ve been nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award.


Before I start, I would like to thank Shameeka @Booksoverblumen for the nomination. She posts great book reviews, tags, music, and much more. Do visit her blog! 😀

The Rules:

  1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Answer the seven questions.
  3. Frame seven questions for your nominees.
  4. Nominate seven deserving bloggers for the award.

Answers to Shameeka’s questions:

  1. Who is your book boyfriend/best friend? And, why?
    I’m going to mention a specific character from a book just to make it more interesting. I would consider Hermione Granger from Harry Potter to be my best friend because she’s smart and witty. And, I would consider Adam from If I Stay to be my boyfriend because what’s better than dating a band member? *dreamy eyes*
  2. What is the craziest book among what you’ve read so far? (Like bat-shit insane)
    To be honest, I’ve not read a book that’s bat-shit insane for a very long time now. The last book I read that I would consider crazy is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn because of the insane plot twist.
  3. What is your favorite genre of music? Any song recommendations?
    Well, my taste in music greatly depends on my mood. However, my favorites would be Indie Pop/Rock. I would suggest listening to Twenty One Pilots and Two Door Cinema Club. I love their songs!
  4. What do you do in your spare time?
    A lot of things! I like to multi-task, haha. Apart from blogging on WordPress, I like to read books, bake, cook, play some sports, and get creative with some arts and crafts.
  5. In a battle between Voldemort and Darth Vader, who do you think will win?
    I’m going to have to choose Voldemort because I’ve been a Harry Potter fan since my childhood. Also, nothing can beat wizardly powers!
  6. What does blogging mean to you?
    That’s an interesting question! To me, blogging translates to freedom. It gives me a platform to express my opinions and thoughts freely on a range of topics. It also gives me the confidence to be able to speak up on something that I strongly believe in. Moreover, blogging has given me the opportunity to interact with my readers and fellow bloggers, which has made me a happier and optimistic person.
  7. If you could swap positions with a book character, who would it be and why?
    Hm, that’s a hard choice to make because I’m in love with so many book characters. But, I think that my number one choice would be Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

    Some of the main reasons why I would swap positions with her is because she is:
    a) Witty.
    b) Charming.
    c) Straight-forward.
    d) Stylish.
    e) Observant.

Questions for my nominees:

  2. Do you plan your posts before writing them or are you more spontaneous?
  3. Is there any book that you could read over and over again without getting bored?
  4. Who’s your favorite Talk Show host?
  5. Would you rather read the book first and then watch the movie or vice versa?
  6. Have you ever gotten the opportunity to meet your idol? (It can be anybody, a celebrity, author, singer, and so on.)

I hope you enjoyed reading my answers!
Congrats to all the nominees! I’m looking forward to reading your answers. 😀

    Ah I loved Gone Girl- unfortunately I made the mistake of watching the movie first (I didn’t even know it was a book) Great post! Love your blog design by the way!
