Ariana’s questions

1. If you could travel to any period in time, where would you go and why?

Audrey-Hepburn-Gif-audrey-hepburn-24000806-500-282

I would go to the golden age which is the 1920s Paris or sth but there was a war going on so… I think I’d go to 1960s New York or London or Paris. Mostly it’s because I really like vintage stuffs and the fashion in bot era too.

2. What is your favorite under-hyped novel?

The distance between us by Kasie West. I think the reason most people don’t pick this book up is because of the cover, and I totally understand that. But really, this book is one of the best contemporary romance I’ve read! 😀 it’s funny, quirky, sweet, romantic, swoon worthy and everything really.

If you want to know more about this book, I’ve a book review here.

 

3. What type of music do you enjoy listening to the most?

It depends on my mood, really. I like sad songs but also pop rock R&B sometimes. 🙂

4. What are three books you absolutely refuse to read?

50 Shades of Grey, Twilight, The Mortal Instruments. Just…no interest I guess? Tho I’ll definitely pick up the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.

5. Do you prefer series or standalones?

I’m not sure on this one. It, again, depends on the story. :///

6. What are your favorite and least favorite book to movie adaptations?

Love, Rosie. It’s one my favorite movie and I cried! Just know i don’t shed my tears that often which is like twice a year so this movie is definitely something eh?

My least favorite book to movie adapt rink is The Scorch Trials. It’s not the same as the book most of the movie. Tho I really like the quality and filming styles and stuffs. It’s very cool and pretty.

7. What is one food you never get tired of eating?

french-fries

French Fries. I mean, come on, who  doesn’t love French fries? I’m a French fries monster!

8. What are the most difficult and most rewarding things about blogging for you?

Blogging daily is very difficult because I tend to procrastinate a lot and there’s like a million things I want to do in a day :(((

The most rewarding thing is the nice comments and fangirling! 😀

REAL NEAT BLOG AWARD #2

Bonjour! 

I’m again surprised that I was nominated for this blog award because my blog is rather messy, with changing themes and no real schedule, which is very unprofessional of me. But you know, life gets in the way.

I have to thank the Aldii from Perfection in Books for thinking that I deserve this award. 🙂 Aldii, you are the sweetest. Go check her blog out if you haven’t. 😀

The Rules: 

  1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer the 7 questions your nominator has provided.
  3. Nominate 7 other bloggers and create new questions for them.

My answers:

 

Reading outdoors or indoors?

Indoors because I’m most comfortable in my little cornor. I do sometimes like to read on my swing which is outside, also I don’t  mind cafe because…food. 😀

Not me btw. Picture Credit: Google

Worst fear about blogging? (ex. having no ideas,no more interest)

I do feel very very guilty when I’m absent for a long time and that’s because I’m busy or just lazy. 

Best thing about blogging?

Fangirling! and learning from all of you 🙂

Best thing about books?

It transports you to places and distracts you from the boring real world which is like the best thing.

Do you like movies or tv shows based on books?

I do! I love to see the story in pictures and compare it with the ones in my head.

A goal for your blog?

I started blogging mostly because I’m in need of fangirling and connecting with other fangirl/fanboy. Goal is continue reading and blogging 🙂

Real Neat Blog Award

I was nominated by Nicola @ BookBunny for this award, and I’m so happy! I’m quite surprise because my blog isn’t neat and has gone through loads of change, also doesn’t have any uniform (which I am trying to build but I like changes). Thanks again, Nicola. Nicola’s blog is simple yet refreshing, a treat to the eyes and her posts too are awesome!

The Rules:

1. Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the 7 questions the nomination has provided. 
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers.
4. Create 7 questions for your nominees.

Nicola’s questions:

Do you have a favourite pet?

I used to pet guinea pigs(Teddy & Lucy), but they died after three months under me and my sister care. The story is just so sad, I’m forever grieving about this. One afternoon when I came home from school, I saw Lucy just lied in her cage and already not breathing TT the cause was perhaps the lack of vitamin C. And Teddy was eaten a month after by a stray cat aka cruel monstrous creature swear I’ll kill you when I see you again. They are the only pet I’ve ever had.

If you had to evacuate your home and could only take 3 books and 1 other item, what would you choose to bring?

Anna and the french kiss, Lola and the boy next door, and Isla and the happily ever after. These are one of the first books I really really enjoyed and I still am. The item would be my earphones (the case is my phone is already in my pocket and not in the house, so…)

Are you a tea or coffee person?

I don’t drink tea but only coffee these days because my house doesn’t have many tea bag but many packages of instant coffee. I still prefer tea tho.

What is THE most disturbing book you have ever read?

I seriously can’t think of any ://

What genre least appeals to you and why?

I have to say non-fiction and historical-fiction. I love history, and learning about the pasts of everything but I find historical fiction boring also non-fiction (Reality is too much, I pick a book up to escape not to learn more ugly truths)

What would be your dream job, if you could wake up in the morning and be doing it?

A billionaire’s daughter, because then I won’t have to wake early in the morning. KD lol. I would love to go traveling around world, my luggage is ready anytime 😉

If you could be friends with any character in a book, who would it be?

Albus Dumblemore. There is no valid reasons, I just think that would be cool XD.
