The Sunshine Blogger Award-Part 5

Hi, everyone! 🙂


I’ve been nominated yet again for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I would like to thank Jenna@BookmarkYourThoughts for nominating me. She writes great posts related to books and more. Do visit her blog! 😀

Let’s get started!

  1. What’s your favourite book from your childhood?

    Harry Potter, hands down.

  2. From the best of your knowledge, what is your favourite childhood memory?

    My favourite childhood memory as far as I can remember is a Barbie contest that I had participated in along with my mom. This memory is so vivid in my mind because of the numerous photos that are stored in my album.

  3. What was your favourite subject in school? Why?

    My favourite subject in school was English Literature and Computer Technology. I never got bored of learning new things in these classes.

  4. If reincarnation is real, what would you like to come back as?

    That’s an interesting question! I think I would like to reincarnate as a bird (as weird as it sounds) because I love travelling and exploring new places.

  5. Name one reason why you would want to teleport to the future? What do you think it will behold?

    I’m loving the questions, haha. What would be most interesting about teleporting to the future is to gain an insight on what the future holds for me and who still exists in my life. It might be scary to know what’s going to happen to you, but it would be exciting at the same time.

  6. Who is your favourite hero/heroine in YA literature?

    Oh, that’s a tough one. I have so many favourite YA characters and the list is pretty much endless. If I had to choose one, the hero would be Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower and heroine would be Caddy from Beautiful Broken Things.

  7. You’ve won a million dollars; what’s the very first thing you do with the money?

    Travel! I haven’t travelled to a lot of the places mentioned on my bucket list, so I would definitely spend the money there.

  8. It’s movie watching time; what’s your favourite movie genre that you’re most likely going to watch? Do you have a favourite movie?

    I enjoy watching a lot of movie genres, but my favourites are Sci-Fi and Animated movies. The one movie that I can watch over and over again is Big Hero 6!

  9. You can instantly travel to anywhere in the world; where are you travelling to? Why?

    I would love to travel to Norway just so I can experience the Northern Lights. ❤

  10. You find a genie (with no restrictions) and are the lucky one to have three of your wishes granted; what are they?

    I would wish to get my dream job, unlimited books, and always be able to bring a smile to someone’s face.

  11. What book series or standalone novel would you recommend/do recommend to anyone? Why?

    There are so many books that I have in mind. Some of them are:

  • To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
  • Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Bernard
  • When We Collided by Emery Lord
  • The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

I hope you enjoyed reading my answers! 😀

The Sunshine Blogger Award-Part 3

Hi, everyone! 🙂

I’ve been nominated yet again for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

Renate @popcornandfilm for nominating me! She posts great stuff about movies, tv shows, and so much more. Do visit her blog! 😀

Let’s get started!

  1. If you could live in any country, which one would it be?

    I would love to live in England, London to be specific. There’s something about this city that makes me feel happy.

  2. Which movie are you most looking forward to watching at the cinema this year?

    So many of them! Some of the movies that I’m really excited for are…
    a) Beauty and the Beast
    b) Logan
    c) Wonder Woman

  3. If you could discuss one movie with a producer or actor, who would it be and which movie would you discuss?

    I would discuss a movie with Lauren Graham! I’m not sure of the movie, but we’d definitely discuss a movie from the comedy genre because she’s got a lively and witty personality.

  4. In which Hogwarts house do you belong? 


  5. Which is your favorite TV-Show atm?

    The Flash! I am definitely hooked, haha.

  6. If you could write a book about yourself, what would the title be?

    That’s a great question. Given the opportunity, I would love to write a book about myself. I’m pretty sure the title would be something unexpected, but I can’t think of anything right now. (This is what lack of sleep does to your brain…)

  7.  If you could go back to the past and change something in your life, what would it be? (but be warned that changing history can be very dangerous)

    I love how you’ve inserted a warning there, haha. Well, I would definitely erase all the mistakes I’ve made in life. Undoubtedly, we all make mistakes and that’s what makes life so interesting, but there remains a sense of regret of not being able to make things right.

  8. Would you rather go to HogwartsXavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters or Starfleet Academy?

    Hogwarts for life!

  9. Best thing that will happen in 2017?

    Increasing my productivity levels!

The Liebster Award-Part 3

Hi, everyone! 🙂

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award yet again. Yay!


Before I start, I would like to thank Renate @Popcornandfilm for the nomination. She posts great movie reviews, discussions, and other fun stuff. Do visit her blog! 😀

The Rules:

  1. Post the award on your blog.
  2. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
  3. Answer the questions assigned to you.
  4. Nominate 11 deserving bloggers for the award.
  5. Ask 11 questions to your nominees.

Answers to Renate’s questions:

  1. Which TV-show are you looking forward to the most (that will have a new season)?
    Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life! The new season is said to be released this year,and I cannot wait to see the cast in Stars Hollow all over again.
  2. Which country would you love to visit and why?
    There are so many countries that I would love to visit, but I’m looking forward to visiting London the most. It may seem crazy, but there’s something about this place that makes it seem so magical.
  3. You have the opportunity to meet a celebrity, who is it?
    Lauren Graham! I absolutely love her. She’s pretty, funny, witty, and she has a charming personality.
  4. Any movie genre you really do not like?
    I think my least favourite would be Horror because the blood and the creepy faces don’t really appeal to me.
  5. If you could be any Disney character, then who would you be?
    I think I would be Mulan because she’s courageous, self-driven, and takes charge of her own destiny.
  6. The best movie you’ve seen this year is?
    Finding Dory! This movie was a major throwback to my childhood, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the movie.
  7. The best thing about summer is?
    I’m not really a summer person, but eating ice cream makes it a little better.
  8. What is the best thing to collect?
    I think that photos are the best thing to collect over the years because they remind you of your childhood, the fond memories you’ve spent with you friends and family, and all the places you’ve traveled so far. For me, it’s very important to capture the smallest of the smallest moments because someday in the future I’ll look back at these photos and smile. 🙂
  9. If you had the opportunity to write a book then what would it be about and what would it be called?
    First of all, that would be a great opportunity for me. The genre would be Young Adult Fiction with a hint of self-help and motivation in it. It would probably be about a young woman who has decided to take full control of her life by taking risky decisions on her own instead of letting others do it for her. As a whole, the book will explain her journey of self-discovery.  I’m not too sure about the title of the book…
  10. Thor lost his hammer, where do you find it?
    I’d probably find it in one of the most unexpected places. Perhaps, under my bed?
  11. If earth would be invaded by aliens, how would you save it?
    Aliens, huh? I’d save the world by using my secret superpowers (Of course!). All I need is some heroic powers and wizardly powers and I’m good to go, haha.

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.

  1. Renate @Popcornandfilm
