Last week it was my birthday so I had a brilliant book haul! I’m so excited!! 🙂

One Lovely Blog Award

one-lovely

Thank you so much to Pearl Angeli from Bibliopearl for nominating me for the “One Lovely Blog Award”. I feel so honoured! Be sure to check her out – not only are her book reviews amazing, but she is such a lovely person to talk to!

After receiving this award, I was tasked to do some things, which include posting these rules:

  • You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • You must list the rules and display the award.
  • You must add 7 facts about yourself.
  • You must nominate 5-15 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they’ve been nominated.
  • You must display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you.

Now here are the seven facts about myself:

  1. I have only recently become a fan of Doctor Who.
  2. During the holidays, I plan to watch seasons 5-8 of Doctor Who, 1-8 of Supernatural, 1-2 of Torchwood, 1-6 of Vampire Diaries and season 3 of BBC Sherlock.
  3. I want to be a psychologist when I’m out of school.
  4. I’m a Christian.
  5. During university (probably my under-graduate) I plan on spending a year in England.
  6. I’ve been obsessed with going to England for who-knows-how-long and I really want an English accent.
  7. Although I am a complete and utter bookworm, I hated reading until the end of year four.

Now I’m nominating these lovely blogs (In no particular order):

  1. Wordsweetheart
  2. Lynette Noni
  3. Bibliopearl (can you nominate someone once they’ve already been nominated? I don’t know but oh well ^_^)
  4. Shannon A Thompson
  5. Bookmark’d in Bankok
  6. Littleonionwrites
  7. Alysha Kaye

Once again, thank you to Pearl for nominating me! It really made my day 🙂

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read.

Randomly open a page.

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
(Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I borrowed all of these lovely finds from the library. Though, considering my holidays end in a couple of days, I have absolutely no idea when I’m going to find time to read them… On top of the books I already own and am yet to read, no less.
