Unique Bloggers Award

Hi Everyone!

I’m back from yet another break. I hope 2018 will be the year where I can keep this blog updated for a couple of reasons: (1) I just want to get in the practice of writing in different ways and (2) I am studying abroad and I want to bring you on my journey!

I was nominated for this award by the wonderful Aditi17 (go check out their blog!) Here we go!

The Rules

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them 3 questions.

 

ADITI’S QUESTIONS

Q1. What are your all-time favorite books (the ones you recommend to everyone)?

These are the Top 5 books I would recommend to anyone:

  1. The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe
  2. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
  3. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
  4. Native Son by Richard Wright
  5. Chinese Cinderella: The True Story of an Unwanted Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah

Q2. What things you generally keep in mind while reviewing a book?

I haven’t truly “reviewed” a book yet; it’s more me yelling about them. How I look at a book while reading it all depends on the genre for me. If one is supposed to be fantasy-based, I tend to look at the plot more. If a book is reality-based, like mysteries, I look at how the characters are written because to me, when the characters are written in a manner where they seem robotic or have unrealistic conversations, the book falls apart for me.

Q3. What would be the overall best book you read this year?

For 2017, I didn’t read any books that came out that year, but of the books I did read, I have to say The Devil in Disguise by Cynthia Eden was a wild ride. Another I read that I think was a pretty good read wasMachete Season: The Killers in Rwanda Speak by Jean Hatzfeld.

MY QUESTIONS

Q1: What book do you want to read that has been on your TBR List forever? 

Q2: What genre do you usually stray away from and why?

Q3: If you could have dinner with three authors, who would they be?

  1. Bruh, I love me some Graceling, as you well know. I’ve not read any of the others, though now I am tempted. And I am excited to join you metaphorically on your journey abroad, where I’m sure you will be discussing literature and culture with the same amount of enthusiasm and nerding out.

    • Graceling was my middle school read, I was OBSESSED. If you were to read one other from my list, I would recommend Persepolis, it opened my eyes to how different people are in the world. And thanks, pal ❤ I can't wait to share all the nerdy things I find in Edinburgh and beyond 🙂

  2. Congrats on the award, Marisa! And thank you so much for tagging me ❤
    Loved your answers and was especially giddy to see Graceling in your faves. Love it sooooo much!
    I hope you get to “properly” review a book soon, although I do love a great rant/book yelling myself 😉 Plus, what *is* a proper review? No one knows! So you just do you 🙂
    Keep up the great work!
