Real Neat Blog Award

Hey there, my lovelies!

A while back I was nominated for the „Real Net Blog Award“ by Brianna @ Brianna’s Books And Randomness and I thought it was about time to say THANK YOU and to actually do this! *lol* I’m always a few months behind with things like that but I promise I’ll do better in future. Or well, you know, at least I’ll try?! ;-P „A fault confessed is half redressed.“ or so they say! XD

Rules:

  • Display the award logo.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions from the blog who nominated you.
  • Nominate seven to ten bloggers.
  • Ask them seven questions.

Who is your favorite Harry Potter character?

Oh wow, that’s a tough one! *lol* So many of those characters are awesome and I really love them all. If I’d have to decide I’d go with either Harry Potter himself or Lupin though. I always loved Harry and his defiance and even though he thinks he’s not cool or has no control over things he still tries to do the best he can. Also Lupin is amazing! He’s legit the best DADA teacher they ever had and I love his compassion and calmness. ❤

Do you play any instruments? If yes, which one(s)?

All right, you got me! ;-P Yes, I DO play instruments (plural), but it’s been ages I played them with others. XD Also I haven’t practiced properly for a while. (Having a kid that’s like a little tornado will do that to you. *lol*) Anyway, this said I play e-bass, a little bit guitar and the piano. I think I suck at the latter two but I’m pretty sure I play a decent and mean e-bass. Haha! (At least I think I do.)

If you could reread any series or book for the first time again, which would you choose?

Definitely „The Raven Cycle“!!! I loved this series so damn much and just to feel that magic all over again, to see how those friendships form, this deep connection to Cabeswater and between all those lovely characters! ❤ Don’t even get me started on Adam Parrish or Ronan Lynch! I would love to read this series for the first time again! =)

What do you like to do on rainy days, (besides read)?

I think the next best thing to reading would be to watch Netflix, make music, listen to music or to draw?! Oh, boy, even an imaginary relaxed day sounds kinda busy with me, doesn’t it? *lol* But honestly, I have so many hobbies and just to be able to indulge them would be enough. As it is my rainy days are spent with taking care of my kid so none of the above is actually happening. XD Guess it will get better once my child is older. 😉

What is your favorite band?

This is a dangerous question to ask because I don’t have only one. ;-P There are so many great bands out there, there’s no way it could only be one. If I’d have to name just three I’d say the following though: One Republic, Imagine Dragons and Thirty Seconds To Mars

Would you prefer a cold day with lots of snow or a warm day perfect for the beach?

Always a warm day perfect for the beach!!! I might be born in winter but I really don’t like the cold! *lol* I love warm summer days and I’m definitely a summer kind of person!

Share a picture of your bookshelf!

This is just the part I rearranged a while back, but I hope that one day I’ll manage to get a decent picture of my entire shelf.

I nominate the following people for this award:

My questions are:

  • How do you drink your coffee/tea?
  • What is your personal kryptonite trope in books? (e.g. broken boys, enemies-to-lovers, found-family, etc…)
  • If you could time travel for just one day: Which year would you pick and why?
  • What kind of job would be your dream job and why?
  • Are you rather an extrovert or an introvert?
  • You’re at the beach and only have a couple of minutes left before you have to be somewhere else. What do you do? (read, bask in the sun, sink your feet into the sand, etc.)
  • What’s your favourite season and why?

The Real Neat Blog Award

How do you organize your bookshelf?

Mhmm that’s a tricky question, but I think if I had to explain it I’d say I organize it in series and in genres. I always want the books of a series to be together and I hate it when publishers decide to change their size. >_< I don’t know why they do this but it looks ugly on my shelves. *lol* And well, recently I started to make my personal LGBTQAI+ shelf because I’m sick and tired of not seeing one of those at the library!! They have the books but they apparently don’t dare to give them their own shelf which makes me sad. >_< So yeah, at home I have one of these now and it makes me happy to look at it! 😀 ❤

Do you have any pets? – If yes what are their names and do you have photos? If no would you like a pet and what type of pet would you get?

I had a lot of pets when I was a kid. Two budgies (Piepsi & Timmy) and a hamster (Speedy)! 😉 But they all died years ago. 😦 At the moment I don’t have a pet because our flat is too small, but if I could have one I’d get a cat. I love cats but my mom was allergic to them so I couldn’t have one as a kid. >_<

What book(s) have you had on your shelf unread for the longest?

I’ve become pretty good at reading my unread books but if there is one series that’s been sitting on my shelf for ages it’s „A Darker Shade of Magic“ and I really, really need to change that. I borrowed a few of Schwab’s books from the library recently and I loved them all so it’s about time I start to read it. I’m worried I’ll love it though so I’ve been kind of procrastinating for years. *lol*

What time/event in history would you most like to see?

Ahh for a history geek like me this is a tough one. xD I was always fascinated by the French Revolution but those were dangerous times for people from foreign countries so it would be best not to go there. *lol* Mhmm… maybe the nineteenth century? The industrial revolution, London and the British Empire? Could be fun to see it but also bad for my lungs. Or I’d go to back to ancient Rome? The Greek Philosophers?  Damn, just too many options! You see, I’ve troubles to give a clear answer to this question. 😉

If you could travel anywhere where would you go? (fictional or real)

Fictional: Definitely Velaris!!! I really, really, would love to see this city! It sounds so amazing and I could probably spend ages wandering through its streets. 🙂

Real: Probably somewhere I’ve never been before. Like Tokyo, New Orleans (French Quarter!!!) or Sydney!

What was your favourite childhood movie?

Haha! It’s a tie between „The Lion King“, The Little Mermaid“ and „The Beauty and the Beast“. I loved all three of them for different reasons and I’m using my kid as an excuse to rewatch them now. *lol*

If you were a character in a YA novel what type of character would you be?(For example: Protagonist, sidekick, villain, the sister who’s killed for the sake of the plot, the forgotten about 3rd of a love triangle?)

I love this question! It’s really unique! 😀 And to answer it: I’d probably be the hyper, sassy, funny and occasionally cunning bisexual and gender fluid Dark Court faerie that ended up in a love triangle, has a tough past but still tries to make the best of it and always stays optimistic. *LOL*

I nominate …

Questions 

1) If you could jump right into a book which one would it be and why would you want to jump into it? 

2) Describe yourself in ten words! 

3) If you could choose only one side, would you rather go to the heroes or try your luck with the villains? And why?! XD

4) What’s your favourite song right now? 

5) What was the worst present you ever got? (I’m looking forward to interesting answers here. *lol*)

6) What was the last book that ruined you emotionally and caused you to cry rivers of tears? 

7) Do you like poetry? And if yes, do you have a favourite poem?
