Unique Blogger Award // My Hogwarts House, Favourite Genres & more! (+ I FINALLY GOT DIVIDERS)

HELLO AND WELCOME TO A POST WITH LOADS OF QUESTIONS AND MY ~super cool~ ANSWERS.

I have been nominated for the Unique Blogger Award by what feels like thousands of people now and I thought WELL THIS IS CLEARLY GETTING OUT OF HAND so I’m finally going to answer some of the questions!

I don’t want to make this post too long so that’s why I will only mention half of the people who nominated me and do a Part 2 soon!

LMAO I’ve said “soon” but this most likely won’t happen until like December because I know me and I’m #lazy. DON’T JUDGE ME GO AWAY BYE.

First things first (I’m the REALEST. Does anyone get that reference :P).

I was tagged by the lovely Raven @ Dreamy Addictions who always leaves such nice and thoughtful comments on my posts which I appreciate SO MUCH. Thanks for being awesome!

RAVEN’S QUESTIONS:

1. What are your top three favorite books so far in 2017?

Oh my god. Really? DOES THE FIRST QUESTION HAVE TO BE SO HARD ALREADY??? Also, are these supposed to be books I read in 2017 or books I read that were released in 2017?

If we’re talking about releases, then my top 3 will have to be Geekerella (SO FREAKIN’ ADORABLE), Caraval (OH MY GOD THIS WILL BLOW YOUR MIND) and One Of Us Is Lying (THE BREAKFAST CLUB MEETS PLL) ❤

      


2. What inspired you to start your blog?

I’ve always wanted to have a blog but I never had the guts or the motivation to make one! I’ve been really getting back into reading in 2017 so I thought HEY let’s create a blog and share my love for books with other fellow book nerds! So hello, hi, WASSUP, here I am 😛


3. Can you name some of your favorite bloggers and explain why they are your favorites?

Oh my GOSH. Another super difficult question BECAUSE I LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY FOLLOWERS SOOOO MUCH. AND I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE ANYONE OUT. NOOOOO, I REFUSE TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION. I LOVE EVERYONE.

(I also plan to do a post show-casing some of my favourite bloggers soon (SOON??? lol Jackie stop lying) so I DON’T WANT TO DO THIS TWICE :P)

I was also nominated by the wonderful Emmie @ Tea with Mermaids who was the only person who got my Should I Stay or Should I Go reference in one of my recent posts SO YOU ROCK 😛

EMMIE’S QUESTIONS:

1. What book shaped you into the person you are today?

I’m not sure if there’s a book that really shaped me but there are a few books that are on my mind a lot of the time. The most important one is probably Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. I KNOW, I KNOW. I’m so freaking annoying because I keep talking about this series and how much I love Warnette… but this is for a different reason!

 

One of the reasons why I love this series so much is because of Juliette and everything she goes through in the series.

I DON’T WANT TO RAMBLE TOO MUCH BUT LONG STORY SHORT:

JULIETTE WAS THIS FRAGILE AND INSECURE GIRL WHO ISOLATED HERSELF FROM EVERYONE AND I COULD RELATE 100% WHEN I FIRST READ THE SERIES. I was super anxious and insecure a few years ago (still am LOL) and there was a time when I wouldn’t even leave my room for days! Me = Juliette in Book #1.

Throughout the series, she grows into this independent and STRONG woman and I felt so inspired after finishing the series because I thought if she can do it, I CAN TOO.

*insert YES WE CAN gif here*

SO WHEN I SAY I LOVE THE SHATTER ME BOOKS… YES IT’S MOSTLY WARNETTE RELATED BUT IT’S ALSO BECAUSE THEY REALLY HELPED ME IN A WAY AND GAVE ME THE FIRST LITTLE PUSH TO CHANGE AND BECOME THE PERSON THAT I AM TODAY ❤


2. Is there a book that everyone else loved but you hated?

Ummmm… I can’t think of one right now but I’m sure there is!!!


3. What do you look for in a new book release?

A unique plot. Lots of action. Or very character-driven. Or both. A pretty cover. Diversity. If my favourite author loved it. Or if my favourite author has WRITTEN it! LOADS OF THINGS.

“Und eine Menge Fantasie!” only Germans will understand

I was also tagged by my favourite twins Shayna & Tayna @ Twin Bookmarks. They’re lovely and wonderful and always fangirl with me YAYYYY!

THE TWINS’ QUESTIONS:

1. If you could only read from one genre – what would it be? And why?

YA FANTASY. Because you can escape reality and you have AWESOME new worlds and BRILLIANT CHARACTERS and it’s just so much fun!


2. Favourite pet from a book? Why?

THE DOG FROM SHATTER ME. YOU GIRLS KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.

THE DOG DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A NAME BUT IT’S MY FAVOURITE BECAUSE IT MADE WARNER SOFT AND ALL SMILEY AND DIMPLEY AND ICANDJRGTBDKHDF I HOPE HE MAKES A REAPPEARANCE IN RESTORE ME.


3. Hogwarts House? (or if you’re not a HP fan – Which Faction from Divergent are you in?)

Well, my dear friend May(onnaise) and me recently did the Pottermore test together and after a few hundred tries (I’m kidding, I think I did it like thrice) I was sorted into…

YAAAASSSSS.

On my first try, I was sorted into Gryffindor though and I also thought I was a Hufflepuff SO I’M QUITE CONFUSED BUT I’LL STICK WITH SLYTHERIN FOR NOW *insert snake emoji*

I won’t be tagging anyone this time around because I’m too lazy to think of questions right now (even if it’s just three) but I will do a part 2, remember? So let me know if you want me to tag you in my next post 😛

    You’re dividers are so DIVINE! I love them and what a neat site (thanks for sharing…) You SLAY ME when you talked about your love of the Shatter Me series! I remember loving Warner when I read the first one but I really just became so hyped to finish this series now!! I love relating to books like that… and of course YA fantasy! There is something so cool about the magic inside people coming out as abilities and well, magic!!

    Your blogger post is going to be incredible if that rainbow is anything to go by 🙂

    I love those flowers!! ❤ ❤
    I've always felt like I'm a mix of Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff because there are aspects of both that really define me. I think if I HAD to choose just one (like for sorting purposes) I would probably go with Ravenclaw.

    I laughed so hard when I read “First things first (I’m the REALEST. Does anyone get that reference :P). ” I loved it! Also your dividers are gorgeous. I’m jealous. I have yet to read the Shatter me trilogy, I really want to get to them this year haha.

    These dividers are gorgeous! Just checked out her website and I’m in love with her designs ❤ Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin but I'm NOT a slytherin at all (I don't have anything against slytherins, I just don't have any of the qualities)

    Loved your answers! I’m so glad to see Caraval in your favorite’s list! It’s a wonderful book and I’m so excited for the next book. One of Us is lying is already in my tbr and I’m planning to read it this month. Shatter is totally epic. It’s too bad we have to wait a long time for the next book to come out.

    Congratulations on the award, Jackie!! And I sure love your new dividers, they’re so pretty ❤
    I really need to read the Shatter Me series! And One of Us is Lying!
    Geekerella was super cute indeed ^^ I can't wait to see how Poston's new book will fare 🙂
    I totally get your confusion regarding the Pottermore test hahaha I'm a Gryffindor myself but I always thought I'd do well in Slythering or Ravenclaw as well (and if I take the quiz enough times, I might just get sorted into them all xD )

    Oh my gosh!! We loved all your answers!! Because we’ve been busy (you know why😉😎) we only had the chance to read and like…but not comment because you deserve a long one 😉❤

    YA Fantasy os probs what moat like we would say too 😉 – we just get a little (or sometimes more😉😉) bit of EVERYTHING to STIMULATE ones imagination!!😆😆👌🏻

    AND THE DOGG!!! AHHH SO ADORABLE!! PERHAPS IT’LL BE NAMED IN THE NEXT BOOKS!! PERHAPS WARNER WOULD NAME HIM/HER!! AND IT’LL PROBS BE CALLED “Goldy” – ‘cuz it’s fashionable 😉😉

    And we too were housed into Gryffindor (second/third try😉) – and we have mentioned in a our post somewhere but I, Shanya am a HUFFLEPUFF (#PUFFPRIDE 😎) and I, Tanya am a RAVENCLAW (the smart one 🤓)! But SLYTHERIN always seemed so cool!!😁😁👌🏻

    The question for which book shaped you as a person – is soo deep and beautiful!! That’s why books are sooo important!!

    Also you too are one of our favourite blogger (definitely our fav GERMAN blogger😉😎) out here!! This is embarrassing and we know you know our names (as the way you typed our names is the way many have AND WE HAVE typed it as)…but Shayna and Tayna we are NOT…ummm lol 😂😂😂😂 common mistake it is, but closer than most – usually they put ‘i’ instead of a ‘y’..😂😂😂

    Ciao from The Twins (Shanya and Tanya😉😉)

      Aww don’t worry about not commenting, it’s totally understandable! But thanks anyway for this SUPER LONG comment, I’m so excited to read it! 😍😍

      Exactly!!! I mean I love contemporaries but there’s just something about fantasy and all the possibilities within a certain world that’s so much cooler! ❤️

      AKDKFNFFNNDKF OH MY GOD GIRLS. PLEASE, I’D LITERALLY DIE OF HAPPINESS. IMAGINE WARNER AND JULIETTE BEING ALL DOMESTIC AND CARING FOR THAT DOG 😭😭😭😭😭 and I feel like it’s a him! But it could be a her too! Ahhh I don’t know XD

      I’m so indecisive because I really want to do the test again (I might not have been exactly truthful :P) to see which house I REALLY belong in! I definitely have Hufflepuff traits but I was sorted into Gryffindor first and now I’m just confused???? 😂

      Awww thank you ❤️

      Yaaaaayyyy thanks girls!!! You two are some of my favourite bloggers too! Oh man I thought it was Shayna and Tayna the whole time!! I think I saw it in your About page once and I’ve used it ever since??? Wow, I’m so dumb, I’ll definitely remember that for the next time! Thank you so much SHANYA AND TANYA ❤️❤️❤️
