Sisterhood Blog Award

11 Dec

Okay, time for some blog loving! I have two blog awards to accept. The first is a Liebster award from Darcy at Darcy’s Book Blog. Thank you so much to Darcy! As I’ve received this award before, I’m not going to nominate others but I will have fun and answer the questions.

  1. What got you into reading?
    • My mom. She was always reading when I was a child and got me to read a lot when I was young. When I got into college, I started reading less but when I graduated, I got back into it. Book blogging has encouraged me to keep going strong.
  2. What was your favorite book from your childhood?
    • Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Because Sam I am.
  3. Where is your favorite spot to hang out that is not your home?
    • The library. 🙂
  4. What do you like to drink while reading? Tea? Coffee? Wine? Nothing?
    • Chai lattes from my Keurig. It’s by far the best gift I got for my wedding.
  5. Do you have a favorite classic?
    • A Separate Peace by John Knowles
  6. What genre is your favorite?
    • This is always hard for me. Probably historical fiction, but I love YA, some fantasy, and memoirs.
  7. Who is your favorite hero/heroine?
    • Hermione Granger. She’s a great character and a strong role model for girls.
  8. Who is your favorite villain?
    • I always struggle with this question because I don’t normally love villains. None?
  9. Who is your favorite author?
    • John Irving
  10. Whose library do you want to live in?
    • My local community library. I love it so much.
  11. Freebie. Write what you want here.
    • Turtles.

However, the real reason I’m writing this post is to celebrate a new award that I’ve been given by my great friend Claudia at Living on Borrowed Days. This is celebrating the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers award and I’m very excited to accept this award.


Here are the rules:

  • Thank the blogger that nominated you, and link back to their site
  • Post the award on your blog
  • Answer the 10 questions you’ve been asked
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers and as them 10 questions

Numbers one and two are done. Here are my answers to the questions Claudia asked:

1. You are at a Karaoke party, what song will you be singing?

  • Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. I sang it once and was told I did it well, so it’s now a go-to.

2. If you could ask any author, celebrity, famous person 3 questions, who would that said person be and what 3 questions would you ask?

  • It would have to be J.K. Rowling. Yes,fangirl moment for sure. I would ask:
    • What character is your favorite?
    • Who was the hardest to kill?
    • Who is the most like you?

3. Name five things that are in front of you right now

  • My loving husband
  • My feet
  • A TV that’s off
  • Coffee table books
  • A tempting bowl of chocolate

4. What is your favorite outdoor activity?

  • Cycling. It’s so freeing and therapeutic.

5. What did you aspire to be when you were a small?

  • A middle school math teacher. I really liked my teacher at the time and wanted to be like her.

6. Who is the most inspirational person you know?

  • My mom. I think she’s done amazing things and I hope I can be as great an influence on my children as she was on me.

7. What is the one thing you do that often gets you into trouble?

  • I’m always in such a hurry to get things done that I sometimes miss a few little things that get pointed out and I have to go back and fix.

8. I have to ask this questions because I’m a die-hard superhero fan; so, if you could be any superhero, who would it be and why?

  • I’m not much into superheroes, to be honest. I really like the X-Men and I would say Dr. Xavier, but when he could walk. I’d love to read people’s minds and see what they’re thinking.

9. What was the last movie/TV show/book that made you cry?

  • I watched Titanic a few months ago. It makes me cry every darn time!

10. Make a wish!

  • That your Christmas is merry and jolly and full of love!

Okay, so now I get to award this to ten fellow bloggers. I’m really excited to pass this award to:

  1. Yvo from It’s All About Books
  2. Jen from Jen’s Pen Den
  3. Haley from As I Lay Reading

    Thanks for the nomination! ❤

    – I still love Green Eggs and Ham! It easily becomes a family favorite when you have kids; I have it memorized by now 😉

    – I’ve actually picked up my second historical fiction novel this month, I have to admit that this genre is quite engrossing; especially when family dramatics are involved; it’s better than a soap opera! 😛

    – Call Me Maybe? This I must see! Post a Vlog. . .I dare you! 😛

    – An interview with J.K. Rowling would be amazing!

    – I love cycling too Sam! I agree that it is therapeutic and dangerously addicting 🙂

    – A mind reader!? I’d be afraid of that power, but I love that you chose Dr. Xavier; he’s stinking awesome!

    – Love the wish; have a wonderful Christmas friend!

      I’m glad you’re enjoying historical fiction. I enjoy learning about a time and place while witnessing a story. It’s like cheating at learning.

      (Un)fortunately, the friend with the karaoke machine moved, so I have not had to repeat my celebrated ‘Call Me Maybe’ performance. If I ever do, it’s likely my husband will record it and use it as blackmail. I’m sure you’ll be able to find it on the internet.

      My mind-reading abilities tell me that you are also a fan of the X-Men and have recognized that Dr. Xavier is not a superhero per say, but is a mutant. Thank you for not correcting me on that. 🙂

        Actually, I’m not too fond with the Marvel family, I’m more of a DC Comics fangirl 😀 . . .like over-obsessed, you should see all my fun collection of action figures lol!

        – Mutant, superhero, super ability, super power. . .it’s all the same to me 😉 They’re distinct, that’s what makes them special

    Thank you so much for the nomination! I think JK Rowling would be the celebrity I’d want to talk to as well. Such an inspiration!

    Have a very Merry Christmas!


    • Sam December 12, 2014 at 8:02 AM #

      Thank you for blogging! I have SO many questions for Rowling, I’d have no idea where to start!
