Liebster Award #2 | The Mystery Blogger Award #1 #2 | The Outstanding Blogger Award #2

Hey there bookworms! Today I am going to be doing 3 blogging awards – The Liebster Award and Mystery Blogger Award and The Outstanding Blogger Award. So thank you for showing your love everyone and nominating me for these awards🥰.

Liebster Award

I have already done this award earlier, and I got nominated a second time! Thanks to Laura @The Corner Of Laura for nominating me!

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions
  • Notify your 11 nominees
Laura’s Questions
  1. Would you rather have seven dogs, seven cats or seven birds as pets?

Easy! 7 dogs!!

2. What is your least favourite season and why?

Spring, because well, my birthday falls in Spring, and the season is just so beautiful and pleasant.

3. What have you discovered this year (e.g. great TV show, hidden talent, etc)?

I have discovered….new friends, right here on WordPress! It is a very special feeling to finally have friends with similar interests!!

4. Is there anything from 2020 that you’re going to miss? Anything at all?

Umm…no. Ok, maybe I am going to miss all the free time I have right now to read and blog, because once real school starts, I don’t think I would have this much time. Other than that, I am happy to see 2020 go.

5. What song describes your life right now?

I am not sure about ‘right now’, but A Head Full Of Dreams describes me and my life in general.

6. If you could turn yourself into an animal for an hour every day, which would it be?

No, thanks. I love animals, but I’d much rather stay human😂

7. Which fictional character would you love to move in with?

Can’t really think of one right now🤷‍♀️

8. Which book would you love to experience for the first time all over again?

All the books of Keeper Of The Lost Cities series! Those big reveals…just awesome!

9. Which show from your childhood would you love to see a reboot of?

I wasn’t much of a TV fan when was little, but I am still in my childhood in a way, so all the animated series I love now would also definitely be loved by me when I am older!

10. Would you rather be given your weight in gold or your weight in books?

If I get my weight in books, will it be books of my choice? If not, I’ll go with gold, and buy books of my choice with that gold 😉

11. If you could live anywhere in the world (fictional places included), where would you live?

There are so many places (fictional only!). Atlantis from KOTLC, Hogwarts from Harry Potter, Nevermoor from the Nevermoor series etc

My Questions
  1. Which author would you like the most to interview?
  2. Do you prefer reading one book at a time or several?

  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice, including 1 weird or funny question.

3 things about me:

I am really good at memorizing lyrics of songs, sometimes I can learn all the lyrics even if I listen to the song only once, (English songs! Hindi lyrics are too tough) but I am not very good at singing.

I love animated movies and series – Boss Baby (the movie as well as the series), 3 Below, Trollhunters, The Emoji Movie, Over The Hedge, and of course Zootopia, are some of my all time favourites.

I don’t know how to cook. At all.

Riddhi’s Questions

1. What is one Christmas themed book you want to read this year?

The Miracle On Ebenezer Street. I have heard loads of good things about it and I so want to read it this Christmas, but I can’t find the book anywhere 😭

2. What is your fatal flaw? 

Like Riddhi suggested, I took a quiz for this. Several of them actually. In one I got Selfishness, in another Curiosity (seriously? how is curiosity FATAL??) and in one I even got “you are an Other. You are a special person, and it is recommended you take another quiz” 😂😂

3. What is your Hogwarts house?

Ravenclaw. I think.

4. Who is your godly parent?

*rushes to google to take another quiz, or quizzes* Apollo!

5. Name three authors whose books you read this year for the first time.

Lots of them! This was the first year I participated in readathons and stuff so I got a lot of new recs from there. Anyway, some of them are- Shannon Messenger, Jessica Townsend, Phil Hickes, Jamie Littler, Cassandra Clare etc etc.

Ashmita’s Questions

1. What do you hate/love about Christmas?

Ehh…I love listening to ‘Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’. And most christmasses are spent at my grandparents’ place in Kolkata with my cousins and we have a lot of fun.

2. Which song are you currently listening to on repeat?

Oh, lots! Yesterday I heard ‘Waving Flag’ and am obsessed with it. And I also listen to ‘Up & Up’ on repeat.

3. Just one quote.

Alright, let me tell you that I LOVE book quotes, but I don’t often end up forgetting them by the time I reach the end of the page 😅. So I am going to tell you a quote I saw a couple days ago on the internet, and I remember (thankfully!)

“Worrying is pointless. It is like holding an umbrella, and waiting for it to rain.”

4. Whisper/secret/cloud. first thing that comes to your mind on hearing these words.

Whisper, I think of somebody leaning to whisper in somebody else’s ear

Secret, and I think of Hush!

Cloud, I think of it like a extra-fluffy pillow.

5. Favourite avenger (marvel) character.

Sorry (don’t hate me please!) but I don’t watch Avengers. Never have 🤷‍♀️

My Questions
  • Which book do you wish had a sequel?
  • Would you rather re-write the beginning of your favourite book, or the end?

Tiction’s Questions

1.What is that one country you’ve always wanted to go to?

Pretty much all countries, since I have never been outside my own 😅 But I have always wanted to visit Spain, Spanish is my dream language!

2. Tea or Coffee?

None. I don’t drink beverages. Only milk.

3. Share a favourite quote!

As I mentioned before, I really appreciate and love reading quotes in books, but hardly remember any. So I googled some of Jupiter’s dialogues from the Nevermoor series (of course they are quote-worthy!), and came across this –

“Death is boring. Life is much more fun. Things happen in life all the time. Unexpected things. Things you couldn’t possibly expect because they’re so very… unexpected.”

I remember reading this line and immediately starting to adore Jupiter

4. If you could master one language, what would it be?

As I said before, Spanish!

5. What’s your book of the month?

Umm *racks brain and then checks Kindle library to see what she has read this month* Hollowpox! I didn’t have much of a choice actually, I have read only three books in December so far😀

6. Would you rather read just one perfect, no-fault, long, long book in your life or read unlimited standalones with cliffhangers at the end?

No preference.

7. Tell us a Dad Joke.

What did the Baby Corn say to the Mama Corn? Where’s PopCorn?!

Hah. Definitely groan-worthy, right?

My Questions
  1. Share the first line of your current read.

Liebster Award

Now I really can’t believe it! In two months (or so) I went from being an anti-social nobody, to being nominated for superb awards like these! Thank you so much to everyone who had nominated me for the previous awards I have done, and of course, thank you Lilly @Lilly’s Little Library for nominating me for this award.

And I have some wonderful news to share. My blog crossed the 200 likes mark a couple days ago! Once again, this would not have been possible without the support of you all, so thank you once again.

All right, let’s get back here *cracks knuckles* and let’s start!

The Rules
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions
  • Notify your 11 nominees
Lilly’s Questions

If you could live anywhere in OUR world, where would you live?

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I am not much of a travel freak. So I don’t really have one of those ‘dream cities’ like most people do. So I won’t be naming a place, instead let’s just go with 1. A bungalow 2. With enough space for all the pets I’ll have then 3. With a huuuuge library 4. by the side of a forest

Huh. That does tell you a lot about me, doesn’t it 😂

What’s your favorite food?

Okaaay. So I am not much of a foodie either. In fact, I am a really fussy eater. I guess I’ll go with the universal favourite – chocolate. To be specific, dark chocolate. After all, who in this world doesn’t love chocolate?

If you could choose to be any magical creature for the rest of your life, what would you be?

Maybe an alicorn (from KOTLC) or a niffler (from Fantastic Beasts)

Would you rather live 100 years in the past or 100 years in the future?

In the future! I have read so much about the past in history, and tbh, all those things are better in a textbook, not in real life. I don’t think I would be able to survive without the Internet. So thanks, but I’d go into the future. Think about what all would have been invented by that time!!

What character’s life would you most like to live?

This one’s difficult. The only one I can think of is Morrigan from the Nevermoor series because 1. I am currently obsessed with that series 2. I would love any reason to know the marvellous Jupiter!

On second thought though, I think Jack from the same series will be fine too. Both the above reasons apply for him too(he is Jupiter’s nephew) and on top of that I won’t have to be ‘cursed’ like Morrigan is!

What battery percentage is your device on right now?

55%

If you could only have one hobby from here on out (besides reading of course, how could anyone live without reading?) what would it be?

Playing the guitar. I think it is really cool, when you can just walk up to someone and say, “I play the guitar”, you know? And I used to play the guitar till last year, but then my sir had to get married and he moved to somewhere else. Since then, I barely practiced what I learnt, and my guitar is gathering dust on the top of some cupboard now.

What is your current favorite song?

I have quite a few current favs. One would be Up & Up, because oh my gosh, the lyrics are just so wonderful and inspiring! Then Memories by Maroon 5, ’cause I really like the tune and the singer’s voice. Next would be The Spectre, the tune is just so addictive and I drove my mother mad by humming it the entire week when I first heard it. You know what, I’ll just put these songs below so you can listen to them right now.

If you could change your first name right now, what would you choose?

First of all, I love my name. Though Rachel is a very common name in Western countries, it is very rare where I live, in India. And having an uncommon name does have its advantages (it has disadvantages too, of course).

If I had to change my name, it would probably be something like Michelle, or Rachelle, ’cause I like that ‘chelle’ part which is pronounced like ‘sher’.

What book got you into reading?

I remember, when I was 3 or 4, my mother used to read me out a story from a comic book everyday. The same story, everyday, for I think about a month or so. To be specific, the comic was Tinkle, and the story was a Suppandi one, I don’t remember the name exactly. So yeah, she read it out to me everyday, to the point when I had it learned by heart. Then there was another book, “Grandpa’s Tales”or something like that, and that was the first book I read all by myself. These books were what got me into reading from a very young age.

What’s your favorite book?

This I just CANNOT answer! Instead, I will bend the question a little bit and tell you about some of my recent favorites.

The Keeper of Lost Cities series by Shannon Messenger

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend

The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Thank you for such lovely questions, Lilly!

And hey, in case you did not know, have started a new weekly tag called Character Chat! Click HERE to know more about it!

With that said, see you in my next post!!

The Outstanding Blogger Award

I cannot believe my luck! Or is it the goodness of my fellow bloggers? Either way, I am doing another award today! Thank you Ashmita @The Fictional Journal for calling me outstanding nominating me for this award.

And hey, did you notice, I changed my featured graphic image for my blog posts yet again! I can’t seem to settle on one, and I keep making new graphics. As they say, ‘change is the only constant thing in this world’ 😂

Anyway, here are the rules for this award.

Rules:
  • Link to the creator’s original award post.
  • Answer the questions provided.
  • Create 7 unique questions.
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers. Neither the award’s creator nor the blogger that nominated you can be nominated.
  • At the end of 2020, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award!

Okay, without further ado, let’s get started answering Ashmita’s questions!

  1. What 3 GIFs would you use to sum up the last book you’ve read?

The last book I read was Nevermoor : The Trials Of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend.

Okay, so the last one happens to me in every single series I read, but you get the idea, right?

2. What is your favorite word?

There are just SO many amazing words in the English language (and in other languages too, of course😅) so I am just going to tell you the ones that are coming to my mind right now. The basis of my favoritism is mostly the sound of the word or its meaning.

  1. Blossom
  2. Twilight
  3. Mallowmelt (Yeah, I know this is probably not a real word, but KOTLC fans will understand)
  4. Anchor
  5. Accent

3. If everyone was like a food item and had an ingredient label, what would yours contain?

Um…not very sure, to be honest. But this would definitely be written – “Comes in all flavours. Pick yours wisely 😉”

4. Who is your favourite person in THIS world?

I am not sure whether this has to be someone I personally know or not, so I am going to go with the most obvious choice – my mother.

5. What do you think is the colour of your soul and why?

If you would have asked me this question, say, around 6-7 years ago, my instant answer would have been yellow. I used to LOVE that colour. Coming back to the present, I’ll say it’s probably blue, because it represents the high and limitless sky and also because I love all shades of blue!

6. If you could teleport to anywhere in THIS world, where would you go?

First I should tell you that I hate travelling. I mean yes, I like seeing new sights, but I just can’t stay away from home for too long. If I could teleport, that would atleast get rid of the ‘travelling’ part ’cause I’m assuming I can teleport instantly. With that said, I would probably like to go anywhere that has a lot of wildlife around, and I can see flora and fauna everywhere. But after a couple of hours, I would teleport back home because, there is no place like home after all 😉.

7. What is your element?

I just browsed the internet and found out that I’m Fire, because I am an Aries. Actually, before I knew this, I have always considered myself to be Fire, as my mother is always telling me, I am VERY short-tempered and tend to flare up for little things. Apart from my short-temperedness, a lot of characteristics of Fire given on the internet match mine – Confident, Enthusiastic, Tempermental (oops! already mentioned that), Passionate, Creative, Enthusiastic etc etc.

Even though I am definitely Fire, I have always wanted to be Earth since I saw the series “The Nowhere Boys” and Jake was my favourite. Anyway, I am what I am😀

My Questions
  1. What are your other hobbies besides reading?
  2. If you could write a book about ANYTHING, what would you write about? (you’ve to assume people WILL read your book, even if the theme is a little weird different)
  3. Which is a series you could binge-watch forever?
  4. Spell your name out with books that you loved. (Eg. I would start with R- Ravaana by Amish Tripathi and continue with A C H E and L)
  5. If you could time travel either to the making of the earth/beginning of life or to the destruction of earth/ending of all life, which one would you choose?
  6. What would the name of your autobiography/biography/biopic be?
  7. Which is your favourite ice cream flavour?

Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award

Hello guys! I am soooo happy right now, I got nominated for my second blogging award! A big thank you to Tiction @Fictionally Crazy for nominating me. (psst! do check her blog out if you haven’t, it’s awesome!) I am hugely obliged.

What is the award all about?

Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award is a non-official Award to the bloggers as a reward of wonderful work on their blogs. It’s just as important because it really reflects the good impact we can have on other people’s lives. It is important for the inspiration towards the success journey of our fellow bloggers and especially newbie’s to become the future Stars.

  5. List the rules and display the “Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award” logo

Let’s move on to answering Tiction’s questions-

  1. You are granted three wishes, what would you ask for?

Hmm..this is a difficult one. So the first one would be that I live in a huuuuuuge library filled with the kind of books I like (I myself am not sure what kind of books I like, so counting on the library to know😉) and I spend most of my day reading (and a little blogging). Next I would wish for a pet, preferably a dog, preferably not-black, preferably a Labrador Retriever or a Golden Retriever (okay, I know that’s a lot of preferences, but I am specific 🤷‍♀️) Finally, I would wish that I get to write a full-length novel, and that it is published, and people all over the world read it. Ahh, the feeling when you see your name on the book cover…

2. What book would you love to be a character of?

Currently, my answer is definitely going to be The Keeper of Lost Cities. I would get to meet Sophie, Keefe, Dex, Linh(nah, not so enthusiastic about meeting Fitz after all that stuff about ‘matchmaking’) and of course I want to meet Wynn and Luna!

3.Who is your favourite author and what is it about their books that you adore?

As I said in one of my earlier posts, I simply cannot name a favourite author, in fact I won’t be able to name even top ten. There are SO many brilliant writers out there, and I cannot do injustice to them by naming others. And also, I am not really that person who reads a lot of books by the same author. I only do so if it is a series. But, in recent months, I loved KOTLC series by Shannon Messenger, several books by Agatha Chrisitie, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, short stories by O’Henry, amongst many others.

4. If you could have a single super power, what would it be? Why?

I guess I would want the power to know, as soon as I pick up a book, whether it is going to be super interesting or not. I know it is pretty strange, and I am sure I would want a whole lot of other superpowers, but this is the only one I can think of right now 🤷‍♀️

5. What is the thing that would have been different than now had pandemic not been there?

Okay, be ready. If the pandemic had never happened….you wouldn’t be reading this blog right now. Seriously, I started blogging during this lockdown, because the urge to share my feelings on all the books I read grew stronger, until I just wanted to have an outlet where I could interact with like-minded people. And this was also the period I was introduced to all the amazing readathons that happen on Twitter and other places. Actually {don’t hate me please} I do think I am a tiny bit grateful to this situation. But yeah, now I just want everything to go back to the way it was.

The Sunshine Blogger Award

Okay, so I still can’t believe it. I, for the first time ever, got nominated for a blogging award! Thank you so much Riddhi @Whispering Stories for nominating me. It is a really big deal for me.

What is The Sunshine Blogger Award?

The Sunshine Blogger Award is a blogging community-driven award wherein bloggers nominate their fellow bloggers. Its primordial intent is to bring recognition to bloggers, especially those who fly under the radar, for their inspiring, creative, and motivational blogs.

What are the Rules?
  1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Here are the answers to Riddhi’s questions

  1. When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging in July (I think) this year. I didn’t have a lot of people around me who share my love for books. I started blogging so that I could talk about books with others who have the same interest.

2. What is your favourite thing about blogging?

As mentioned above, I could finally connect with other bookworms, who understood my love and my obsession with books. Blogging also gives me a sense of accomplishment whenever I achieve a reading milestone.

3. What is your least favourite thing about blogging?

Hmm, I guess it is just that for new bloggers like me, who don’t have a lot of friends on social media, it is difficult to get a good audience. Since there are so many blogs on WordPress, mine often goes unnoticed.

4. What are your hobbies beside blogging?

Reading, of course. I also like to listen to music, and I used to enjoy playing the guitar, but I am quite rusty at it now. Other than that, languages interest me a lot. I am currently learning German and French (and a tiny bit of Spanish) and am always looking for ways to improve my English grammar and vocab.

5. What would the title of your biography/biopic be?

It would definitely be something book-ish. “Between The Pages”, perhaps? Aghh, I am SO not good with titles.

6. Some advice for people who have just started blogging?

I have just started blogging myself, so I think it would be safe to say this – Be original, write about what interests YOU the most. You should write selfishly, only for yourself.

7. Describe yourself in seven words? 

Bookworm, Introvert, Achiever, Self-Centered, Confident, Creative, Animal-Lover

8. Dogs or Cats?

Dogs.

9. A TV show you can binge-watch forever?

There are so many! Greenhouse Academy, Just Add Magic, Trollhunters – Tales Of Arcadia will be the top three. Oh, and I just started watching The Bureau Of Magical Things, and I think that might be added to this list too.

10. A song you relate to? / A song you will never get tired of listening?

A Head Full Of Dreams song, which is part of an album of the same name. You should listen to it too.

11. Who is your favourite author?

As much as I wanted to answer all of the questions, I will have to abstain from answering this one. There are so many amazing authors out there, it would be unfair to pick one. But a few of the many authors I admire are – Agatha Christie, Shannon Messenger, Markus Zusak, Enid Blyton etc.

Okay, it was a lot of fun answering those questions. Thank you for these amazing questions, Riddhi!

  9. If you could wish for any one magical ability, what will it be? (Eg. Teleporting, Becoming invisible etc.)
  10. A song whose lyrics are currently stuck in your mind, and are replaying continuously?
  11. A book you could re-read again and again, and still enjoy it?

To the people I have tagged, there is certainly no pressure for you. But if you do decide to write a post, do ping me back, or post the link in the comments. I will love to read your answers.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!
