The Smaugette Award!

Hey there, my lovelies!

I got tagged for this amazing Award by Brianna @ Brianna’s Books And Randomness and Emma @ A Few Chapters ‚til Love! As always this was a while ago and as usually I only got to it now. *lol* Anyway! What I want to say is the following: For some reason I love the idea of this Award, I mean „The Smaugette Award“! What a nice name! And then look at the awesome Smaug picture! How cool is that? XD This is definitely one of the coolest Awards I ever came across and Beck did an amazing job! 😉 

This said I want to thank Brianna and Emma for thinking of me when they did this Award! They are both amazing (and super lovely) bloggers and if you don’t know their blogs already you should follow their links! Now. I mean it! ;-P Okay, let’s do this!

A Smaugette is… I don’t even know. I just came up with it randomly like eight months ago and I don’t know why I did? I just did. Anyway, this tag is for people who are generally amazing. And that’s all of y’all.

RuLeS:

  1. Tag the creator (meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!)
  2. Make sure you have the rules and smaugette definition in your post!
  3. Tag 10 fantastic friends you believe are worthy of this prEsTigIoUs AwArD
  4. Answer the questions I have!
  5. Make sure you put the award in the post so people can bask in its fabulousness
  6. Give them a new thing to try (if they want) and (if you want) try the one I’ve given you!

What I was Supposed to Try:

„Write about something, anything, for at least ten minutes a day for a week. After the weeks ends, choose the piece of writing you’re proudest of and share it in a blog post. It can be anything, from a single sentence to the start of a novel, anything you want. Get out of your comfort zone a little bit and be creative!“

This prompt made me super creative and I even came up with a plotline for a book. Maybe I’ll write the beginning of it as a blog post. Right now my creativity is flowing so everything is possible.

What I want You to Try:

I’m such a sucker for poetry and have been writing poems for years. So I’d like you to try to write a poem. It can be short or long or some sort of rap. Whatever floats your boat! You decide how you want to go about it. 😉 And who knows, maybe you’ll even have some fun?

1. What is a random hill you would die on?

(If you don’t know what this means, it’s basically something totally random that you would fight for.) BTS are a family and they don’t fake their friendship for their fans! You can’t fake a friendship like that! Their closeness and their familiar friendship is real!!! Period! Fight me!

2. What are you being for Halloween?

Well, Halloween is still a long time away but I love to dress up so just let me think about it for a second. XD I think I’d like to go as a book character. The only question is as whom? Maybe a shadowhunter? That would be fun. Or a faerie?! (I’d love to dress up as Cardan hahaha) Mhmm… I’ll give that some thought and you’ll know when it’s Halloween! *lol* ;-P

3. Tell us about your favorite article of clothing and maybe(??) include a picture?

My favourite article of clothing… Mhmmm… I think that would be my BTS Hoodie. Let me see if I can find a picture of me wearing it.  There you go!

4. What’s your favorite Thanos quote? Palpatine quote? Any quote?

“I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail nonetheless.” – Thanos

I really hated what Thanos did, but at the same time I had some grudging respect for him and his view of the world. His character was so morally grey and super well done. I couldn’t hate him but I really, really desperately wanted to. 😉

5. Who or what inspires you?

What a loaded question! Well, prepare for a long answer. What inspires me? My family, my friends, BTS, nature, life with all it’s ups and downs. The good and the bad times, the quiet and the loud seconds of my days, my darkest moments as well as my brightest, life in general. Every experience I make, every breath I take, every second I live and feel and hope and dream! ❤ Life is beautiful, you just have to accept it with all it’s good and bad sides. 

Umm… so in short: Our world and the people in it inspire me and will do so until I take my final breath. 😉

6. What are your top five favorite memes?
 
 
50+ Funniest Game Of Thrones Memes Ever
 
K-Drama Life | Kdrama funny, Drama memes, Kdrama memes
  • Harry Potter memes | Fandom
 
 
 
7. Who is your favorite fictional dragon, (besides Smaug of course)?

I really don’t know all too many dragons but I think I might go with Incendiu, the dragon from Melika Dannese Hick’s „Deadmarsh Fey“. He was kickass! 😀

8. Top five favorite books right now?

I’m really glad that it says „top five favorite books right now“ *lol* because that way I can just go with the flow without overthinking my answer. ;-P Those are all books I read recently btw.

  • If This Gets Out by Sophie Gonzales (I had the privilege to read it as an ARC)
  • The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black (because Cardan!!! ❤ )
  • I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman
  • House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
9. What is your ideal novel?

I’m a sucker for enemies-to-lovers, found family, bandlife, music/dance and the YA/fantasy genre. So everything that will include at least one of those tropes or be in the genre will make me happy as long as it’s done right. 😉 

10. What memory would you think of to cast a Patronus?

This is a really deep question and I thought long and hard about it. The strongest happy memory I have so far is the birth of my kid. Nothing. Really NOTHING beats that moment of happiness when you hold this little new life in your hands. (Well, the panic that hits right after when you’re afraid you’ll do something wrong is real too, but we won’t talk about this now. Happy memories, right?! *lol*)

I Tag:

Of course you don’t have to do the Award if you don’t want to but I thought you might enjoy doing it! 😉

This Award was really interesting and I loved the questions! Very creative, unique and thought-provoking. 😉 Thank you so much for tagging me Brianna and Emma! As always it took me a while to get to it but I’m glad I finally went for it! Also I hope you enjoyed my answers! Some of those questions were actually kinda hard to answer. *lol* This said:

Take care and stay healthy and safe!

Mystery Blogger Award! =)

Hey there, my lovelies!

It’s an established fact that I’m a snail so here I am finally doing „The Mystery Blogger Award“. *lol* I actually got nominated for it thrice which was such a huge surprise that I’m still not over it. XD The three bloggers who nominated me for this award are Mayu @ Bookshelf Life, Anna @ Anna’s Book Nook and Riddhi @ Whispering Stories. I can’t thank you guys enough for nominating me and thinking me worthy of the honor! ❤ If you don’t know their awesome blogs already you should definitely take a closer look!!! They are amazing!!

This said I decided to answer all their questions in one go because if not it might take me even longer to get to them! And believe me when I say that you don’t want that! *lol* You might grow a beard to your knees, write an entire book, get old and wrinkled or have a kid before I get to it. No kidding. Well, okay, I might be. *lol* Anyway! Let’s do this!

What is the Mystery Blogger Award?

The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

This award was originally created by Okoto @ Okoto Enigma’s Blog.

Three Facts About Me

Okay, I think I can do that. 

  1. I’m mixed-handed. 😉 I don’t know why, it’s always been like that. *shrugs*
  2. I love coffee and Chai Tea Latte. (Oh gods, now I’m craving it even more…)
  3. I like to walk around barefoot and I’m the first one to get rid of my shoes when I see the ocean or green lawn. (Pretty random, I know. *lol*)

My Best Blog Posts

The BTS ‚BE‘ Book Tag – Because I love BTS and this was the first time I did a tag on my BookTube channel! 😀

The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag (Original!) – This is the first tag I ever created and of course I made a tag about something that is very important to me! ❤ I’ll definitely do it this June as well. 😉

Mayu’s Questions:

1. Why did you start your blog?

Oh, I see! You bring in the big guns. *lol* Well, there were many reasons but the most important one was that I wanted to have a space in which I could write my super long reviews without any restrictions. Haha! It might sound stupid but the Goodreads word limit was actually the main reasons why I went for my blog. XD That and the fact that I wanted to have my own space in the internet where I could talk about bookish things and publish my poems. 😉

2. What is your favourite book to movie adaptation? And why?

There are a couple of great book to movie adaptions but I think my favourite will always be Harry Potter. As for the reason why? I think they did an amazing job with the character cast and all those special effects and even though they didn’t always hold to the books they still managed to convey the most important plot points. XD Come to think of it the same applies to LOTR too. *lol*

3. What kind of posts do you love writing the most?

I love to write my reviews but I also enjoy doing tags. I guess it might be a tie between those two. They are both fun in their own way! 😀

4. I am a full time student. What about you, what do you do?

I work as an assistant/admin at an NGO and am a full-time parent. 😉 Well, and obviously I blog and have my own YouTube channel as well. I always joke that my blog and channel are my second job. *lol* I just don’t get paid for it. I do it because I love to do it, which in its own way is some sort of reward I suppose. 

5. Name a thing that can get your book lover card revoked.

I don’t think there is anything that could get my book lover card revoked. I’m a book lover through and through. ;-P

Anna’s Questions:

1. What is your favorite book from your childhood?

I loved „Fiery Frederica“ by Christine Nöstlinger and „The Little Witch“ by Otfried Preußler. I don’t know how often my Mum or my grandma had to read them to me. *lol*

2. If you could only pick one hobby to entertain yourself with for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Oh, boy!! That’s a tough question! I couldn’t choose for the life of me! I love music and I love books and dancing! Ahhhh!!! I can’t choose. It’s impossible. >_<

3. You are designing your dream home. What is the one thing that you must have in it?

There are actually TWO things I must have in it and that’s a HUGE library (surprise, surprise. *lol* ;-P) and a big kitchen with a kitchen island. XD I’m a real connoisseur so good food and lots of great books are absolutely necessary. Haha!

4. If you could remake one Disney movie, what would it be and why?

I liked all of the Disney movies so I wouldn’t want to remake any of them. I think they are all great in their own way and have a good and important message. If you’d have said musicals I would have had a couple of ideas though. 

5. Who is your favorite super hero?

Just one? *lol* Ahhh, Anna you don’t make it easy. XD I love morally grey super heroes so I’m more the fan of Batman and Iron Man. Spiderman is great too, but he definitely belongs to the good boys.

Riddhi’s Questions:

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

Since I’m doing this award really late I have about a year to figure that one out, but I think I might actually read „Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares“ around Christmas this year. I saw the Netflix series last year during Advent season and decided I wanted to read the book too. 😀

2. What is your fatal flaw? (Yes, you can take a quiz to find out)

I took a quiz and it gave me this answer: „You got: Other. you are a special person.“ Hahahahahaha! OMG! What does this even mean? *lol*

3. What is you Hogwarts house?

It’s Gryffindor! But apparently I’m like Harry Potter and have a very pronounced Slytherin side as well. *lol* At least the entire analysis of the Pottermore test showed that it was a neck-and-neck race and Gryffindor won. XD Must be my cruel and cunning faerie ancestry! ;-P

4. Who is your godly parent?

According to the readriordan.com quiz it’s Athena?! Guess that makes Annabeth my sister which is pretty cool. =)

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

Emily Henry („Beach Read“)
Lev. A.C. Rosen („Jack of Hearts“)
Brigid Kemmerer („A Curse so Dark and Lonely“)

I enjoyed all of them as well! *lol* ;-P
