Unique Blogger Award 

Unique Blogger Award

Good Morning all!

I was nominated by Krisha @ Bookathon for the Unique Blogger Award. Thank you so much for the nomination! If you have not checked her out yet you really should!

Rules:

  • Display the award!
  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  • Answer the questions they’ve written for you!
  • Nominate 8-13 bloggers and give them three questions in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity within our blogging family!

Questions

Who is the one author whose books you can swear by?

Gail Carringer

How do you select your next read?

I choose by how I feel at the time.  I am very much a mood reader. Sometimes I have to start a few books to find the one that appeals to me at that time.

What is your bookish pet peeve?

I really can’t stand when books are modeled completely after a popular book. Just because it worked once does not mean every book needs to be the same.  I have nothing against using the same concept to make your story different. Make it yours.

Questions/Nominations

So due to the number of tags that I have posted lately I am not tagging anyone but if you like these questions please feel free to do this tag.  Let me know if you do I really would like to see your responses.

TAG: The Entertainer

Good Day Everyone!

I was tagged for this by Demi Reads if you have not checked her you yet you really should.  Thank you so much, Demi, for nominating me even though this is really late.

Here are the questions:

1. What are your top three tropes?

Hate to Love (this will always be my number one)
The Chosen One
Enemies to Friends

2. What blog posts do you enjoy more writing?

Reviews.  I worry myself sick while in the process but I always feel accomplished after they are done.

3. What was the last book you’ve read and absolutely loved?

The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss

4. How do you feel about giving one-star reviews?

I rarely give one-star reviews if I don’t like a book that much I will just DNF it.

5. Are there any genres or sub-genres that you never read?

Erotica. I have nothing against it, it’s just now for me.

6. Have you ever been in a reading slump? If yes, what books helped you get over it?

Yes.  I am working on getting over one now.  The best thing I have found is not to pressure myself to read and when I feel like I want to read and I just don’t know what to pick up I go back to reading a few chapters to all of Pride and Prejudice.  For me, this always works this book is just so comforting. I am finding myself reading a few chapters between me picking up other books right now.

My questions:

So I am going to cheat on this and say if you decide to do this please use the same questions that I answered above.

My nominations:

I nominate anyone who wants to do this tag!

Natalie Imbruglia – Torn

I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldn’t be that man I adored
You don’t seem to know, don’t seem to care
What your heart is for
No, I don’t know him anymore

There’s nothin’ where we used to lie
Conversation has run dry
That’s what’s going on
Nothing’s fine, I’m torn

I’m all out of faith
This is how I feel, I’m cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
Wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You’re a little late
I’m already torn

So I guess the fortune teller’s right
I should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light
But you crawled beneath my veins and now
I don’t care, I have no luck
I don’t miss it all that much
There’s just so many things
That I can’t touch, I’m torn

I’m all out of faith
This is how I feel, I’m cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I’m wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You’re a little late
I’m already torn

Torn

There’s nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
And that’s what is goin’ on
Nothin’s right, I’m torn

I’m all out of faith
This is how I feel
I’m cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I’m wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn

I’m all out of faith
This is how I feel, I’m cold and I’m ashamed
Bound and broken on the floor
You’re a little late
I’m already torn

Torn

Slipknot – Snuff

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again

So if you love me let me go
And run away before I know
My heart is just too dark to care
I can’t destroy what isn’t there

Deliver me into my fate
If I’m alone I cannot hate
I don’t deserve to have you
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn’t face a life without your lights
But all of that was ripped apart when you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not care
I think I made it very clear
You couldn’t hate enough to love
Is that supposed to be enough?

I only wish you weren’t my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint
Ooh, my own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself

And I won’t listen to your shame
You ran away, you’re all the same
Angels lie to keep control
Ooh, my love was punished long ago
If you still care don’t ever let me know
If you still care don’t ever let me know

Aerosmith – Livin’ On The Edge

Lyrics

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today

I don’t know what it is

Something’s wrong with our eyes

We’re seein’ things in a different way
And God knows it ain’t his
It sure ain’t no surprise

Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
The light bulb’s gettin dim
There’s meltdown in the sky

If you can judge a wise man
By the color of his skin
Then mister you’re a better man than I

Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself at all
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t stop yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge (everybody, everybody)

Tell me what you think about your situation
Complication, aggravation is getting to you

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin’
Even if it wasn’t would you still come crawlin’
Back again
I bet you would my friend
Again and again and again and again and again

Tell me what you think about your situation
Complication, aggravation is getting to you

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin’
Even if it was would you still come crawlin’
Back again
I bet you would my friend
Again and again and again and again and again

Something right with the world today
And everybody knows it’s wrong
But we can tell ’em no or we could let it go
But I’d would rather be a hanging on

Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself at all
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t stop yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge (everybody, everybody)

Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself at all
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t stop yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge

Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself
You can’t help yourself
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself at all

Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself
You can’t help yourself
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself
You can’t help yourself
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
