Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Hello, everyone!

The lovely Hannah, from The Donkey Invasion, nominated me for The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Thank you so, so much!

As I mentioned in my first post, Hannah has been very supportive to me and I really appreciate it. You should definitely check out her blog (The Donkey Invasion), where she writes about books and many other topics, like events of her life, hauls, and her personal opinion on various topics. You should also check out her post ofthis award, where she answered the questions joined by her mom!

The Rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you, and link their blog on the post
Put the logo on your blog post
Answer the questions sent to you
Nominate between 5 & 10 other bloggers
Make up ten new questions for your nominees

The questions asked by Hannah:

1.- Do you read poetry?
Not really… I’ve read a few poems here and there, but I haven’t read a full poetry book, though I have two by Pablo Neruda sitting on my shelf.

2.- Favorite ink color?
Probably black. I like the classy touch it gives to the writings!

3.- If you could blog about something different to what you do blog about, what topic would it be?
I would really like to blog about Fitness and Healthy Recipes but, let’s face it: I’m no fitness girl… I don’t even have a workout routine…
Okay, okay, I don’t even DO any workout, just climbing the stairs at college.

4.- Is there a book that you hate and everyone else seems to love?
I’m not sure. I mean, I’ve read some books that I didn’t LOVE when everyone else did, but it’s not like I hated them either. But again, there are so many books that I haven’t read yet, so it could happen.

5.- Have you ever read in public?
All the time! I read at college, at the beach, at the hotel reception whenever I’m traveling, at work during my free time, on a plane... Just name it, I’ve read there.
Except in cars. That makes me sick.

6.- Favorite quote?
This is actually a very tough question, bearing in mind that, most of the times, someone’s favorite quote changes depending on their mood or stage of life, so I can’t really pick just one.
Right now, a quote I really like is:
“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” – Ralph Ellison

7.- Do you have any bad reading habits?
I don’t know if it’s bad, but I can’t close a book until I have finished a chapter. Once I start reading, if you want me to do anything else, you should let me finish the chapter first.

8.- Where do you primarily obtain your books from?
My local bookstore or Amazon.

9.- Do you wish you would read more classics?
Yes, of course! I would love to read more classics, you can learn so much from them! But sometimes they can be a bit boring for me, and that saddens me.

10.- Which part of your lifestyle have changed since you started blogging?
Pffft… Which part hasn’t changed, you might ask.
Honestly, I feel like I’ve been changing a lot lately, and that’s probably the reason why my blogging has been so inconsistent.  A lot has changed, but I must say that the main thing that has changed within me is my way of thinking, my way of perceiving things.

And those are all my answers. I hope they didn’t bore you!

The Nominees:
Kathie, from A Sea Change
Dian, from The Happy Candle
Vicky, from VVNightingale
Vera, from The Flash Window
Alessandra, from Alessandra Lily

My Questions for You:
1.- Who/ What encouraged you to start blogging?
2.- How did you decided what to blog about? Was it hard for you to determine a general theme for your blog?
3.- Do you prefer the sea or the mountains? Why?
4.- What are your top 5 travel bucket list destinations?
5.- If you could pick anyone (dead or alive) to sit next to you on a long flight, who would it be?
6.- What is your favorite food?
7.- Your favorite beverage?
8.- If you were granted three wishes, what would they be and why? And no, you can’t ask for more wishes
9.- What is the best piece of advice you have received so far?
10.- Your favorite quote?

And that’s it for today’s post!

Lots of Love,

  1. Wonderful, thoughtful answers! I have the same problem with closing a book before I finish a chapter (even more so when I can't finish on a page that finishes with a full-stop)!

  2. Oh, such a cool idea. It was fun reading through your answers! I do read in public all the time too. And by the way, thank you so much for nominating me! I have a few posts planned for this next week but this is definitely coming as soon as possible! I'll give you the link then:) Sincerely,

    1. You're welcome! And, don't worry, feel free to do it whenever you can :)
      I'll be looking forward to reading your answers!

  3. I can't seem to do anything else until I finish reading the book I started xD|
    Thank you so much for the nomination :D

    1. You're very welcome!
      Don't forget to leave the link to your post, I would love to read your answers :)

  4. Thank you so much for the nomination Salha! I feel like blogging has changed the way I think too, because maybe writing opinions out in an understandable way is what makes us understand ourselves as well. Black ink really does look classier, doesn't it?

    The Life of Little Me

  5. I have to at least finish reading the scene and it's a compulsory thing that I can't just say nah, forget it and close the book.

  6. Hey, i have already done it! Check it out here! And thanks again for nominating me!
