The Blue Sky Tag!

First of all, I have some very exciting news!! Mahriya from My Bookish Life will be guest posting on my blog!!!!! I am so excited!! Thank you Mahriya for doing it! Her post will be up this Monday, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Now, on to the tag! I was tagged for the Blue Sky Tag by Write Ally! Write! Thank you for tagging me because I really do like doing tags and challenges.

The Rules:

The Questions:

1. What was the last book you read?

The Monstrous Child by Francesca Simon. It’s a very good book based on Norse mythology.

2. What are you trying to achieve with your blog?

I’m trying to improve my writing skills with my blog. Writing is something I absolutely adore and I hope to make a career out of it someday so I’m trying to make my blog a stepping stone towards that.

3. Do you think you are someone with a sense of humor?

Well I do have a sense of humor but I’ve never been the funny one. Although I am fairly sarcastic.

4. Imagine 10 years ago. How does that make you feel about yourself now?

Well I was seven 10 years ago… How does that make me feel about myself now? Well uh… I’m not exactly sure. I guess I’m proud of my achievements?

Probably as the introverted studious type. Although my friends do describe me as creative too.

6. Do you have hobbies that others might find unusual?

I write letters to my friends even though I know I will most probably never get a reply. Writing letters itself is rare in this electronic age but I keep writing them and actually post them to my friends even though they won’t write back… Which is a bit weird.

Chocolate!!!!! Chocolate is the answer to everything! *looks around cautiously*

    Writer’s Ink Challenge 

    Hello! So, I’ve been challenged for the Writer’s Ink Challenge by Mahriya (Most of you know that she’s AWESOME, but if you haven’t found her blog yet, then go, go, go!! What are you waiting for?) Anyway, thank you so much for this, I know the post is a bit late, sorry! And the creator of this tag is Eseosa, and thank you for creating such a wonderful tag.

     I don’t know how much of a writer I am, but I absolutely love writing and I do a lot of it. Writing, reading and music and the three things that I hold closest to my heart.

    Anyway, here are the rules,

    1.Thank your nominator
    2.Answer at least 8 questions about writing
    3.Nominate at least 5 people

    When did you first start writing?

    I’m not exactly sure about that because I have always written things for as long as I can remember… But I started writing more creatively when I was in the 9th grade I think.

    Have you always been interested in writing?

    I have actually, which is something I realized only recently. When I was younger I used to get these really creative ideas which I never actually did. But now that I think about them, I realize that they have always been connected to writing somehow.

    Why do you like writing?

    Hmm… I don’t know really… I feel that I express myself more through writing because I sure can’t do that if I’m talking (Introvert Alert!!). But apart from that, I read a lot of books and when I read them, I feel like I am part of that story, that anything is possible. So many wonderful authors have created such beautiful worlds through their stories and I want to be able to do things like that too.

    What genre do you write in?

    Well, I mostly write fiction but related to real life situations. I have always wanted to write science fiction or fantasy though.

    Who or what motivates you to write?

    Not exactly sure about this one…  But I think the desire to create something of my own is what motivates me.

    Do you write poetry?

    I do actually… Poetry is one of the things that I started writing first. Although I wouldn’t say I’m very good at it. I write more short stories these days though.

    Have you ever written a story with a friend?

    I haven’t exactly written one with a friend but I did talk over a plot idea I had with one of my friends and she helped me get rid of (most) of the plot holes. But I think it would be really fun to write a story with someone and i want to one day.

    How do you write your stories (first person, third person)?

    Well I write in both actually. It varies according to the story. But I’m more comfortable writing in first person and if I ever write a novel it would be in first person.

    And now, I challenge:

    1.  Write Ally! Write!
    2. Jinx Coolness’ bookworm blog
    3. Zwain Movie Reviews
    4. Writing With Style
    5. The Stylish Dreamer
    6. Writings To Heaven 
    7. And YOU if you are a writer, if you love to write, if you want to write… I don’t know many writers (who haven’t done this yet) here on WordPress so if are reading this and you want to do this, please feel free

      If you’ve done this before then do send me a link. I’d love to read your post. And how would you have answered these questions? I’d love to know!

      Until next time!

      Would You Rather Book Tag

      Hey everyone! I’m doing another tag today which I saw on A Biblophile’s Obsession. It’s an awesome booky blog and I suggest that you guys check it out! 

      Would you rather,

      1. Read only series or stand alones?

      Well, I’m not sure. I read both kinds so it’s a tough choice. But if I had to choose I’d probably pick series. 

      2. Read only female or male authors?

      The author doesn’t really matter to me. But I’ve read more books of female authors (coincidence) so if I had to pick I’d pick them. 

      3. Shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?

      Neither because I haven’t shopped at either of them. I don’t buy things online and we don’t have Barnes and Noble here. But if I did have it here, I’d rather go there (to a bookstore) than buy books online. 

      4. All books become movies or TV shows?

      TV shows! So many books have been made into movies and have been changed so much!! I’d love to see them with each and everything in the book with every detail in it. So TV shows would be perfect for that! (Although please don’t make it like The Vampire Diaries turned out…) 

      5. Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

      5 books a week of course! I literally cannot stop at 5 pages a day. The more reading the better right?

      6. Be a professional reviewer or author?

      Oh, author all the way! It’s a dream of mine. Rather than reviewing others’ work I’d like to create something of my own. 

      7. Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones?

      New books I’d say. As much as I’d miss reading my favorites not reading new ones are just too unbearable!

      8. Be a librarian or bookseller?

      Bookseller. I love new books and I want to start a business in the future so bookseller it is for me!

      9. Only read your favorite genre or every genre except your favorite? 

      Favorite genre. I’d miss it too much and it’s my favorite so I wouldn’t get bored reading it. 

      10. Only read physical books or ebooks?

      Oh physical books without a doubt. I really don’t like ebooks and I love the feel of a book in my hand. It just isn’t the same reading from a screen.

      And that’s the end of another tag! I tag My Bookish Life and Write Ally! Write! for this tag and anyone else who’d like to do this if you haven’t done it already. If you do decide to do this please let me know. I’d love to read your answers! 

      That’s it. Thank you for reading. Untill next time!

      Invade My Privacy Tag

      Hello everyone! I saw this tag on Jennie’s blog 50shad3s0fjay (Btw I love it, you should check it out!) and decided to do it since it seemed very interesting. I think I’ll get on with answering the questions!

      No I rarely do.

      2. Would you date an 18 year old at your current age?

      Yes

      7. What exactly are you wearing right now?

      A blue shirt and a light green skirt.

      Literally all the time! Whatever I may be doing I’ll have music playing.

      11.whwhom you a social person or an antisocial person?

      I’m not antisocial but I’m not exactly social either. I am more to the introverted side so I guess I’m too shy to socialize much. 

      12. If the person you like said they liked someone else what would you say?

      Well… I’d be heartbroken but I’d tell them that if they didn’t like me it was their choice. That I understand that they can’t help liking someone else. I’d tell them I respect their decision.

      16. Are you going out of town soon?

      Nope. Atleast I don’t have any plans to. 

      17. When was the last time you cried?

      So these are it! I’m not tagging anyone because these are pretty much very personal questions. But if you’d like to do the tag then you are more than welcome to! 

      Thank you for reading!

      This or That Book Tag!

      Hello! Sooo I was tagged for this tag by the lovely trainofthought (check out her awesome blog MyBookishLife! Honestly you’ll love it!). Thank you sooo much! I was tagged like ages ago… Sorry for not putting this up earlier! Trainofthought is usually the one tagging me in such things and I’ll be ever grateful for that, because I really love these kinds of posts. This tag was orginally created by Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks. 

      So moving on,

      The rules:

      1. Mention the creator of the tag.
      2. Thank the blogger who tagged you. 
      3. Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but can also do them if you want to. 
      4. Tag 10 other people to do this tag and spread the love!

        Reading on the couch or on the bed?

        The bed of course! Its much more comfortable than the couch.

        Male main character or female main character? 

        I don’t really mind as long as the character is interesting…

        Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

        Sweet! Chocolates preferably. 

        Trilogies or quartets? 

        It doesn’t really matter as long as the books are good… Although I do actually have a liking towards trilogies because 3 is my favorite number 😅

        First person point of view or third person point of view?

        First person definitely! It feels like I can get to know the character better that way. 

        Reading at night or in the morning? 

        Anytime is reading time! But reading at night after the day is done is like a little treat for me, something to look forward to during the day.

        Libraries or bookstores? 

        That is a VERY tough choice… But I think I’ll have to go with bookstores because I just love to be surrounded by that new book smell and flip through the crisp white pages… 

        Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

        Definitely books that make me laugh. 

        Black book covers or white book covers?

        I don’t really care about the cover, but I do find darker covers to be more mysterious and alluring. 

        Character driven or plot driven stories?

        I’m not really sure about that because I read both kinds and don’t prefer any one over the other. 

        So that’s it! The rules say that I’m supposed to tag another 10 bloggers, but honestly I don’t know any other book bloggers other than trainofthought… So I’m really sorry for not tagging anyone. But any of you who’s interested to do this is definitely welcome! Seriously guys! It’s an awesome tag and you should really do it! 😉 

        Once again thank you so much to trainofthought for tagging me. 

        Untill next time!
