blogger-recognition-award-logo.jpg

 

i was nominated by my girls and i am so happy about that, because these girls are just amazing. i love talking to them, discussing books with them and just knowing them because of this wonderful community. my first thanks goes to delphine @delphine the babbler. this girl lights up my mood with her posts and i am so happy for her, that she got her job in france and can enjoy a new and exciting life now. then i want to thank my girl darque dreamer @darque dreamer reads. i am so happy, that i met her here, because we started our “throne of glass” readalong together and it was sooooo much fun. we’ll be continuing in october, so just watch out for that. she is amazing and i love talking to her about books and everything else. my next thanks goes to naty @naty’s bookshelf. she’s amazing. i love talking to her and discussing books with her. i recently found out, that she lives in germany and it totally took me by surprise, when she posted a comment in german on my bookstagram haha. my last thanks goes to marianna @marianna reads, whose blog is amazing and whose pictures i love so much, because they are beautiful. ❤
ladies, you’re amazing! if you haven’t checked out their blogs, go over there and give them all the love they deserve! ❤ ❤ ❤

 

 

the rules:

1. thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
2. write a post to show your award
3. give a brief story of how your blog started
4. give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
5. select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to

 

how my blog started:

most things in my life happen from one second to another. i don’t think long, i just do. it was the same thing with this blog. i had a book journal since the beginning of the year and i gave every book i have read a page in that journal to put down my thoughts. i still do this, because i like the journal but after some time i saw that it’s not enough. yes, i could have given every book more pages. but i somehow needed something else. and then the blog idea came. i thought it would be too much work but i just did it. i wanted a place, where i could write about books. not just the books i have read, but also discuss books with other people. and i haven’t regretted it since then. i love my blog and i love communicating with others in this community. it brightens my mood. i met so many great people here and it’s only been a few months. i love how a thing i wanted to do for myself turned into a thing, that brought me so many people and books. that’s amazing and will always be happy about my spontanous decision to start this blog.

 

pieces of advice for newbies:

1.) communicate with others. go check out blogs and don’t be afraid just to jump right into it and talk to other bookish people. this community is amazing and everyone will be happy about a like or comment from you. just start discussions and explore and you will find great friends and people, that are the same way than you are.

2.) don’t force yourself to write. if you see, that you are pressured by posting, then don’t do it. this is a hobby and it should be fun. if you get the feeling, that you are stressed out, then take a break. nobody will be mad. this should be a place you love coming to and putting down words shouldn’t be a chore. everyone will get the feeling that you are forced to write a post, when you do it. so just write when you want to write and when you feel it. it will make much more fun for you.

 

my nominations:

 

please don’t feel pressured to do this award, i just wanted to send some love to your blog! 🙂 ❤

 

if you missed it, i am doing a 300 follower giveaway right now, which ends on october 13th. check it out! 🙂

onelovelyblogaward

now, after so much love, let’s jump to the award!

 

the rules:

  • thank the person who nominated you
  • share 7 facts about yourself
  • nominate 15 bloggers and inform them of the nomination

 

since i was nominated three times, i should share 21 facts about myself right? that’s a lot of facts, wow. so, i thought i would divide the facts into three groups. i will share 7 facts about my bookish life, 7 facts about my personal life and 7 random facts of things i like/dislike. let’s see, how this turns out 😀

 

7 bookish facts about me:

  • i was never a huge fan of hardbacks. i always wanted the floppy paperbacks. but recently my opinion has changed and i am happy about every hardback in my life. they are just so pretty…

IMG_8999

  • if a cover is colorful and not white or black, it immediately draws my attention. i just love colors and the book will always get more attention from me, if it has bright colors on the cover.

 

  • i usually mark and tab the books i am reading, but sometimes i just feel like reading a book in one sitting and then i just focus my attention on that and leave the sticky notes and markers behind. (regretting it afterwards haha 😀 )

 

  • everytime i decide to do a book challenge or a readathon, life happens and i do not have time to read or i loose interest in the challenges and go with my mood instead. somehow it happens all the time and then i am angry at myself, why i always do that mistake 😀

 

  • i feel bad leaving a bookstore without a book. this is usally really rare, but when it happens, i feel bad and weird and something is totally missing 😀

 

  • i own a book journal, that i started in january 2017. it’s a purple, dotted leuchturm and it’s almost full. there are some challenges written down, a monthly overview page, a wrap up page and each book i read has a page dedicated to it with facts about the book, what i liked and disliked. it also had my tbr and the books i bought each month in it, but i stopped that, because let’s be honest, my tbr is out of control and who wants to keep up with chaos, right? 😀 😀 😀

 

  • sometimes on the weekend, i do not leave my bed, except for getting something to drink or using the bathroom. the rest of the day i spent lying in bed with a book in my hands. i do social media breaks, but usually i just read all day and these are the days i love so so soooo much! ❤

 

 

7 personal facts about me:

  • i have never broken a bone in my body, which i am very happy about. that’s the worst thing i can imagine.

 

  • i am really afraid of the dentist. i hate it. it gives me panic attacks. every time i have an appointment, i can’t sleep and i am anxious and it’s really, really bad!

 

  • when i was in the usa, i went skydiving. it was a one time thing and i was scared, but it was such a great feeling and the memory that i have, will always make me think of it. i would never do it again, because for me that’s a memory i want to cherish and if i would do it again, it wouldn’t be special anymore.

 

  • i am still working for the company, that i started my first job with after my studies 8 years ago. a lot of things changed and i developed many skills, but i am still here and love my job!

 

  • my two cats, paulchen & pippi, kind of saved my life two years ago, when i got them. i was in a really bad situation and i knew, that i need to change a lot of things in my life and then they came around and everything turned out great. i love those two so much and i can’t even describe what they give me every day! ❤

IMG_1182

 

  • i stopped counting how many times i have moved houses in my life. it was a lot, really a lot. that’s why i don’t have a childhood home to look back on or anything. my home will always be my family. it’s always them i come back to and never a place.

 

  • i am kind of scared of the dark. i do not like sleeping when it’s completely dark, i do not like being outside when it’s dark, i just don’t like the dark in general. i am a person who gets scared very easily and i hate it. that’s why i always prefer daylight to nighttime, because i can see things haha 😀 i do enjoy a sky full of stars, i just always feel uncomfortable being in the dark.

 

 

7 random facts about me:

  • i love socks! i am obsessed with socks. i buy socks on each shopping trip i go and i just can’t have enough!

IMG_0477

 

  • i love mugs! 😀 yes, i am also obsessed with mugs. my kitchen slowly has no space for them anymore, but i love a good mug and since i drink a lot of coffee and tea, i need a great mug collection to drink it from, right? right? 😀

IMG_2655

 

  • i am a coffeejunkie, which you all should know by now. but what you may not know is, that i hate cold coffee. i can’t drink that. ice coffee, or anything coffee tasty, that is cold, i hate it so much! bleh!

 

  • i am a hoodie person. i usually dress very casual and as long as it’s comfortable, it’s for me. i would love being in sweatpants all day, but unfortunately that’s not possible. so i wear hoodies. i own a lot of hoodies. i think i have a hoodie in every possible color. a girl needs her choices!

 

  • the same goes for sunglasses, which is why that gif is so perfect. i think i own around 40 sunglasses. they were not expensive, just some random sunglasses, that i pick up, whenever i can. i have them in each color to of course match my hoodie and converse chucks. i am a color coordinator when it comes to my outfits and it works very well for me haha 😀

 

  • i am a bath person. i love taking baths. i hate the shower because i am always cold. brrrr. nope, thank you. a long, hot bath, music and a good book, that’s my thing!

 

  • i have a desk in my living room, that has a great working space, including two big screens for me to work. i can be very productive there and do so many cool things. the only thing is, that i never use it hahaha 😀

 

 

alright guys, i think you should probably know everything about me by now hahaha. i hope you liked all those facts about me! 🙂

 

here are my nominations:

 

liebster award #2

hello bookoholic friends! ❤ how are you doing! the weekend is in front of us and i wanted to let you know, that i will be gone a little while. my best friend from ireland is visiting me and we are going to a music festival on the weekend. i am reeeeeaaally looking forward to it. but that also means, that i won’t be active on my blog and on your posts, because there is no internet on music festivals hahaha. also, i need to socialize 😛 i wanted to prepare some posts, but my work life is so busy right now, that i didn’t have time to do this and so the weekend will be empty on my side. just to let you know. i hope you have a great time and i will be back latest on tuesday. whooop whooop!

so, now for this post. i am trying to get to all my tags, but they are piling up haha. so i decided to do another award. this time i got nominated by the great kate and serena over @the library ladies and the amazing naty over @naty’s bookshelf. please go over to their blogs and spread some love. they are wonderful! 🙂

LiebsterAward

the rules:

  • acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award
  • answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you
  • give 11 random facts about yourself
  • nominate 11 blogs (with under 200 followers)
  • notify these blogs of the nomination
  • give them 11 questions to answer

 

 

kate & serena’s questions:

  • if you could be transported to any fantasy world just for a day, where would you go?
    i need to choose? that’s tough! but i think i would love to see my boy kaz, so i want to be transported into the grisha world 😀

sixofcrows

 

  • do you know your myers briggs type? if so, what is it?
    yes i do. i am “the advocate” (INFJ-T). apparently i am very rare but still leave a mark in this world 😛

 

  • you can have any kind of mystical creature for a pet. which do you pick?
    definitely mr. kindley from “nevernight”. he is a very, very special mystical creature and i would love to have him by my side!

Nevernight

 

  • did you have any irrational fears when you were growing up? what were they?
    actually yes and i still do. i once got lost in the forest when i was a child and my dad only found me about an hour later. i was crying and scared, because i couldn’t find anybody. since then i am afraid of forests. at night, i would never walk into a forest and also in the bright day, i only go into forests when someone is with me.

 

  • do you have any favorite myths (greek, roman, egyptian, norse, etc)?
    so far i don’t.

 

  • who would you bet on in a fight? a witch or a vampire?
    uh, that’s a tough question, because i do not know that much about witches. i mean, i never read books about them or watch movies or series. on the other hand, i watched and read a lot of vampire stories. so probably i’ll go with vampires.

 

  • desert island: which five books?
    oh my god! :O i think this answers changes every day. but as of right now, i would take “the fault in our stars” by john green, “the martian” by andy weir, “jane eyre” by charlotte bronte, “fangirl” by rainbow rowell and “harry potter” by j.k. rowling because on that island nothing would keep me from finally reading this book. 😀

 

  • if you could have one super power, what would it be?
    teleportation. it would save sooooo much time and money. i think there is no better super power than this.

 

  • if you could visit only one website for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    youtube! that way i would still get a lot of information and entertainment!

 

  • what household chore do you hate the most?
    wiping the floor! omg you have no idea how much i hate to do that!!!

 

  • what is your favorite snack food?
    chips forever and ever and ever! ❤ ❤ ❤

 

 

naty’s questions:

  • what book you wish you could un-read to experience it for the first time again?
    i am chosing “dark matter” by blake crouch, because it totally blew my mind and i love when that happens!

DarkMatter

 

  • what’s your hogwarts house?
    you know i haven’t read “harry potter” yet but i did the test and apparently i am a hufflepuff.

 

  • who is a character you love who you think belong in your hogwarts house?
    since i don’t know anything about that, i need to skip this question! 😀

 

  • what popular book have you not read yet?
    i can’t choose “harry potter” again, because that is so obvious. but there are many more. for example the ACOTAR series by sarah j. maas. but i will go with “the raven boys” by maggie stiefvater.

ravenboys1

 

  • what’s your favorite color?
    that changes like every day. it totally depends on my mood. purple, blue, green, yellow. all of them except orange and red. i do not like those colors.

 

  • what are some of your favorite authors?
    john green, v.e. schwab, rainbow rowell, harlan coben

 

  • what bookish universe could you live in?
    oh, so not just a visit but to live in? i am choosing the world from the “shades of magic” series by v.e. schwab. i would love to travel between all the different londons. go on adventures. and of course there is kell! ❤

aconjuringoflight

 

  • what superpower do you wish you had?
    again: teleportation! 🙂

 

  • what is your favorite dessert?
    uh, that’s a great question, because i really do not like dessert. i never eat dessert! i don’t know what it is, but i am not a fan of cake, or ice or whatever after eating real food. crazy, right? 😀

 

  • what genre do you read most?
    definitely ya-contemporary. i love my fluffy contemporaries. they are easy to read, i like reading about younger kids and their choices and experiences. i don’t know what it is, but i just enjoy contemporaries so much! they are just so fluffy to me! 🙂

 

  • what is a bookish goal that you have for 2017?
    i had many goals for 2017 but it all changed throughout the year because stuff happened. but my main goal was to read 80 books and i reached that goal already and i am very happy about that. ❤ now i just want to enjoy my time with books.

 

 

now let’s go to the 11 random facts about me:

  • i hate radish. bleh!
  • i have a tongue and a nose piercing
  • my favorite number will always be 13

the first person who didn’t actually nominate me was kristin over @kristinkravesbooks. she spread the love for my blog and that’s why she deserves some answers to some cool questions! 😛 (i’m cheating here, yes, but i want to answer those questions, hahaha 😀 and i want to give back the love) kristin is amazing. you need to check out her blog. she is such a nice person and i love talking to her about books. it’s so much fun. ❤

one of the people, who actually nominated me was steph over @lost: purple quill. she also has an amazing blog and is such a wonderful person. go and check her out if you haven’t already and give her some love. 🙂

sunshinebloggeraward

  • answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
  • nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions

the questions kristin answered and i want to answer too: (i know, i am cheating, bla bla bla, but i don’t care. i do what i like to do!)

  • do you listen to audiobooks?
    yes i do! i love listening to audiobooks when i am cleaning my apartment. it’s pretty huge and i need a lot of time to clean it, so audiobooks are perfect for that. 🙂

 

  • do you structure your bookshelves? (genre, colour, author…etc)
    weeeell, i try to! 😀 in my living room i have three shelves. my books are divided into read and unread books. then into series and standalones, then into genre and in that into colors. so there is a lot of structure haha. my classics are separated from that and also my english and german books are separated. you see, i have everything under control here 😀

bookshelf

 

  • how do you feel about comics and graphic novels?
    not a big fan. or i should say, that i don’t read them at all. for me (and please do not hate me or punch me) these don’t count as books… (going into my cave and hide)

 

  • unpopular opinion! which popular book or series don’t you like?
    i guess you could say that i wasn’t the biggest fan of “the upside of unrequited” by becky albertalli. i really couldn’t connect with molly on so many levels, so it was hard for me to love this book as much as other people did. 😦

upsideof

 

  • summarize your last read in 5 words
    the lucky number is 13.

 

  • do you participate in readathons?
    i haven’t participated in that many readathons, but if i can squeeze it in, i really enjoy doing it. it gives me motivation! 🙂

 

  • do you snack while reading?
    uhm, yes! i do. not often but if there are some chips lying around in my apartment, i pick them up while reading!

 

  • where do you like to read?
    my bed. totally and compeletely. i love my bed. i could stay there all the time! it’s a great reading spot, it’s comfy, it gives me a great feeling and my cats also have space to lie next to me! ❤

bed

 

  • apples or oranges?
    definitely apples. i hate oranges. it’s so much work to eat them and if they are not sweet, i am so mad. i stay away from oranges 😀

 

  • recommend a diverse read!
    since i was so negative on “the upside of unrequited”, i will recommend “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda” by becky albertalli! this book is sooooooo adorable. it made me feel all the feels and i just loved it! ❤

simonvs

 

 

stephs questions:

  • what would you do if you were invisible for a day?
    that’s an awesome question! i would probably hop on a plane and fly somewhere where i have never been before but which is close by (we don’t want to waste any time). and there i would visit all the bookshops, cafés and sights you need to see, without paying for everything and skipping all the lines. now, that i think about that, it would probably be london!

 

  • what was your favorite movie as a child?
    “e.t. the extra-terrestrial” – i knew this movie by heart. i watched it over and over and over again, so that my parents worried a little about me, because they didn’t know what was wrong with me 😀 second place goes to the disney version of “robin hood”. i knew that one by heart as well!

IMG_0406

 

  • what is your favorite kind of blog post to write?
    you know me, i am a tag person. i just love doing tags, it’s so much fun! but i also loved my blog event for “throne of glass”. ❤

 

  • if you could commission any author to write a book for you, who would you choose?
    definitely v.e. schwab! i love her writing and she became one of my favorite authors this year. she’ll do the best job ever!

 

  • is there a talent or skill you don’t have, but which you did?
    i guess she means one talent i would like to have. and yes, i would love to play the guitar. unfortunately, i suck at music but it would be amazing if i could play the guitar, because i LOVE music! ❤

 

  • what is your least favorite book?
    if you go by the ratings on goodreads, then my least favorite book is “dubliners” by james joyce.

 

  • any random subject/fact/phenomenon that fascinate you?
    i always had a thing for stars/star constellations or space in general. it’s a thing that blows my mind, but i really like it and i’m interested in. the same goes for weather. i was obsessed with tornados in school and the weather fascinates me very much.

 

  • what was your favorite birthday?
    honestly, i have no idea. i am not the biggest fan of birthdays at all. i don’t know what it is, but i do not like my birthdays.

 

  • what kind of music do you like to listen to?
    coldplay, mumford & sons, robbie williams, indie rock, oldies, rock classics, everything i am in the mood for 🙂

 

  • what book have you ALWAYS meant to get to, but haven’t yet?
    well that one is obvious: “harry potter”. yes, i always wanted to, but i never did…

harrypotter

 

  • if you could relive a day in your past, what would it be?
    when i was in the usa i did a roadtrip for two weeks through all the canyons. we were three people and on one day, i walked alone along the grand canyon (i didn’t do the walk all the way down). i just stayed up, but enjoyed all the beauty. after meeting up with the others, we drove to the parking lot of the havasu falls in arizona. we went down the canyon and all the way to the havasu falls. i saw paradise there. i swam in the pools, i jumped through the water fall, which was so scary and then we went back all the way up to our car. we were on our feet for so long and i thought, i wouldn’t make it up the canyon. i really thought, that this was the time were i would break together and it’s over. i was exhausted. but it was also the best day ever. i learned so much about myself and i will always cherish and be proud of what i did there. i would love to relive that!

 

 

mariannas questions:

  • what is the book that you loved reading so far this year?
    OMG, do i need to say one book? i loved so many books this year, i can’t possibly decide. or can i?? i will go with “kids of appetite” by david arnold, because it’s still with me after all those months and after all those other great books!

KidsOfAppetite

 

  • a book that you love that is a movie
    i love the book for “the outsiders” by s.e. hinton. and i also loved the movie. it was such a great book adaption and i know, that i will watch it again very soon!

outsiders

 

  • favorite book with a male protagonist
    “a man called ove” by fredrik backman. go read it! now! but also “six of crows”, “a darker shade of magic”, “the martian”, and and and…

AManCalledOve

 

  • a classic book that you love
    best classic ever! “jane eyre” is amazing! ❤ ❤ ❤

janeeyrepurple

 

  • show us a cover that scares you
    this cover scares the shit out of me. it reminds me of the twins in “the shining” movie and i hated them. soooooo creepy. and now this little girl here. come on, why?

missperegrine

 

  • how many books have you juggled at the same time?
    like literally juggled? one haha! but no, let’s be serious. i think five at the same time was a record for me. audiobook, ebook, 2 buddy reads and one main book. but let me tell you, that were tough times 😀

 

  • a book you absolutely recommend
    just one? oh man! ok, i know which one. i will be recommending a sci-fi book. it’s called “fuzzy nation” written by john scalzi. but you need to listen to the audiobook for this, because the one and only wil wheaton is narrating it and oh my god, that was soooooooo much fun!!! i laughed and i cried, it was a perfect book!

FuzzyNation

 

  • a book that you have read more than 2 times
    too easy! i will go with a book i have read seven times! and it is, *drumroll*, “the fault in our stars” by john green. 😀 (what surprise, i know)

thefaultinourstars

 

  • is there a book that you have regretted reading?
    no, actually there isn’t. i do not regret reading a book, because i can always learn something from reading a book.

 

  • other than reading, what do you like doing on a rainy day?
    does watching booktube or blogging count? if not, i’ll say rearranging something in my apartement or playing with my cats or watch a romcom on tv 😀

 

  • name an author that you love
    well, since i already mentioned v.e. schwab in this post, i will say harlan coben, rainbow rowell, john green, jay kristoff and a couple more… 😀

 

 

 

 

these were my answers. wow, this took longer than expected hahaha. i hope you enjoyed this post. i won’t be tagging anyone this time, because i feel, everybody already has been nominated for this award. also, i am lazy. yes, i am. ok, not lazy, but busy. yes, i am. ok, you see, i am talking nonsense, that’s why i better stop now. have a great day my friends! ❤ 🙂

  2. before studying computer science in media i started my studies with life science but stopped that after 4 months
  3. as books are my most obsessed thing right now, a couple of years ago i was obsessed with tv series. i watched like every one and knew all there was to know
