I’m slowly recovering from that mess the weather caused to my body and my immune system (seriously, people, never forget to take care of yourself!), and, in order to avoid getting into blogging slump a.k.a. completely lazy with writing new content, I’m gradually drafting all those posts I wanted to share. Obviously, all serious kind of discussion posts will probably go to the next week, so I hope you understand. I’ll try to be back to bookstagram as soon as I take new photos tomorrow /hehehe/, but, as you might have noticed, I still like and comment some posts, and am pretty active sharing instagram stories, so don’t forget to go to my crazy bookstagram to follow up with updates, as well as my in no way less crazy twitter where I keep ranting about books!
So I’ve been nominated twice for Unique Blogger Award, by these wonderful people – Maddie @Of Reading and Random Things and Imane @booksaccino. (make sure to check both of them out!), and so I don’t need to write two different posts, I’ll combine both their questions and answer here!
Thank you so much for nominating and supporting my blog! Very much appreciated!
- Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
- Answer the questions.
- In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
- Ask them three questions.
1. If you could live anywhere in the world, real or imaginary, where would it be and why?
Anywhere in Eastern Europe, most possibly Praha (Czech Republic). Although I’ve never been to Europe (yet!), I feel like I have a very deep connection with it as our souls and moods matches perfectly. I believe that I will feel so free when I step onto Europe and inhale its air. I know, I’m pretty weird.
But I actually have long-term plans on moving out from Vietnam, and I’m almost 100% sure I will move to somewhere in Europe.
2. What skill(s) would you like to learn if you had the chance?
Playing instruments. People kept saying I have fingers long enough to play piano, I highly regret not persuading my parents when I was a kid. I could go with either piano or violin, as they are my most fav instruments to listen to.
3. Do you have any obsessions other than reading? Maybe knitting or stalking people on Instagram?
K-pop. I’ve been a k-pop fan for almost 10 years already, and I’m still a hardcore fan of Korean pop music. Probably I follow k-pop news more intensively than I follow bookish updates lol
1. Have you ever read a book in one sitting? Which book was it?
I did once back in 2012, and it was The Hound of Baskerville by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Still remember having nightmares after reading it.
2. Are you for or against dog-earing, drawing and annotating on books?
I’m more against it. Well, I can still stand a dog-ear, or annotating on books (like, if made with pencils), but I definitely won’t stand a drawing on books. It ruins all the aesthetic of the book.
3. What makes you think “This is a 5-star read” and what was the last one you’ve read?
For me, it could be a very nice twist of a cliche plot; interesting, deep characters (I need to feel them when I read a book); good writing style; reasonable pace of the storyline depending on a type of story; enough development for almost all characters; and reasonable usage of literary devices. My last 5-star read was, again, talking about that very book, Sintar. The Killer Island by my pen friend Sora.
You’ve been nominated! Yoo-hoo!
I’m really sorry if you’ve been tagged already before me!

So that’s it! Now I can go back to reading ACOTAR, because I’m already hooked in, and I need to get a physical copy of the original asap, because at some points Russian translation just makes me feel angry >__<
Will come back with more content soon,
