The Outstanding Blogger Award — Take 2! 🎊

Hello everyone, and welcome back! Elizabeth @ An Attic Full of Paper nominated for the Outstanding Blogger Award, and I’m in disbelief? You guys are spoiling me with all these awards 😭🥺 Thank you so much, Elizabeth!

And without further ado, let’s get started!

The Rules

  1. Provide the link to the creator’s original award post. (Very important: see why in step 5.) The original post by Colton Beckwith can be found here.

The Questions

How many times is it okay to reread a book?

I’m not much of a rereader myself, but in my opinion, if the book is so good that you want to repeat the experience of immersing yourself in the story all over again, there’s really no limit to how many times you can reread it.

Of course, it’s probably not the best idea to pass up other equally great books in favor of rereading the one book over and over again. So as long as you give other books the appreciation they deserve, there’s no set number of times you have to reread a book!

If you could have written one already published book, what would it be?

Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. I read this book for the first time when I was in third grade, and I loved it. I have a thing for complex family dynamics, and the March sisters’ bond was so wholesome and heartwarming to read about. Ms. Alcott’s book is inspiring readers around the world to this day, whether it be in matters of faith, family, or love. I can’t even imagine how amazing it would feel to be the author of such a book.

What is your favourite thing about blogging?

There’s… a lot of things I love about blogging, but the one that makes me happiest is definitely connecting with people who enjoy books as much as I do and who appreciate my bookish ramblings.

Are you more of a summer or winter person?

Winter! It’s not like I don’t enjoy a warm, sunny day, but winter’s coziness and cool weather speak to me more than summer’s sweltering weather or mosquitoes.

What is your favourite song at the moment?

I have 60 tracks on my Favorites playlist, so I’ll just go with the song I’m listening to right now as I type this: “My Petersburg” from Anastasia’s Original Broadway Cast Recording. I love this song so much, omg. I don’t even know why. I love it. Derek Klena’s belting is obviously one of the reasons, but goodness, this song (and frankly, the entire Anastasia cast recording) is just so gorgeous.

MY PETERSBURGGGGGGGG~~~~~

What is one of your favourite blogs out of those that you follow?

AHHHH THIS ISN’T FAIR. I literally had to go use a number generator to randomly choose a blog from my Reader for this question. And the winner was… (drum roll please) Lauren @ twenty-seven letters! Lauren’s blog is so pretty and I’m in love with her blogging voice!!! Her recent discovery of Rick Riordan actually was a big factor in my decision to start the Percy Jackson series, which I’m sorry to say I have never read. I have the first three books on hold at the library, so thank you Lauren for all your raving over the series! 😊

When is it okay to start listening to Christmas music? 😉

Around Thanksgiving, from my personal experience. But no judgment on anyone who starts listening before that! I mean, it’s music, right? You can listen to it whenever you want 😂

My Questions

  1. Do you read the dedication of a book? If yes, which one is your favorite?
  2. What is your cellphone wallpaper?
  3. If you had a time machine, what time period would you travel to?
  4. How do you decide what book to read next?
  5. Are you more of an outdoors person, or are you more of a homebody?
  6. What inspired you to start blogging?
  7. Describe a book you just finished in four words.

  1. Some great answers here and also some interesting questions too. I also really like Little Women, though I think it would be a hard one to write, given that it’s so long and spans so much time! I’ve listened to a few songs from Anastasia but I’ll have to listen to My Petersburg 🙂

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed, Elizabeth — thanks again for nominating me 💛 And Little Women is definitely a tribute to Ms. Alcott’s skill with a pen. A girl can dream of becoming a writer like her *dreamy sigh*

      “My Petersburg” is definitely one of my favorite songs from the album! The entire musical is such a hidden gem 🥰

      Thanks for reading and commenting, Elizabeth! 💛

    1. You deserve the nomination! I’m looking forward to reading your answers 😊 And I’m glad I can spread my Christmas cheer — hopefully I’m now not alone in having carols stuck in my head in September 😂

      Thank you for reading and commenting, Erin! Your comments always make my day 🥰🥰

  2. Well, a book I defiantly want to been written beings to one of my books: Tale of the Cattail Forest

    Christmas Music- usually beginning late November. Just don’t start listening to Christmas music too early. Just Christmas is not going feel the same this year- usually on Christmas Eve, I go to the 10:45 Candlelight Service- not happening. However one thing that usually happens yearly will still go on: George C. Scott movie of A Christmas Carol

    1. Ah, touché! Wishing you the best of luck with your writing! 👏

      It’s such a shame that Christmas is going to be affected because of quarantine. But I’m glad to hear that you’ll still be able to keep your annual tradition of watching A Christmas Carol! ❤️

      Thanks for reading and commenting, Meg!

  3. Thank you for tagging me! I agree, I’m not a huge rereader myself, but if it’s bring joy and comfort, then people can reread their favorites as many times as they like! We don’t have winter here, but I also love colder weather (rains) as it brings such a relief from the humidity.

    1. Yep, I’m sure rereading the books you love can feel a lot like coming home after a difficult day! And I can definitely see how you would prefer cooler weather to sticky, hot temperatures. Thank you for reading and commenting, Tasya — I’m looking forward to reading your answers! ❤️

  4. I loved your answers to these! 😊 Personally, I am a huge rereader – I usually reread at least as much as I read new books 😁 I just love returning to those worlds and noticing more and more details every time!
    And I start listening to Christmas music no earlier than December 1st😉 The Advent season is a huge deal here in Germany, and I don’t want to spoil the anticipation by starting early! Then, though, I’ll get on everyone’s nerves by singing carols over and over and over again 😂

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed! 😆 I definitely see the appeal of getting to experience the same world over and over again and learning new things each time! I would probably reread more books if I had some sense of moderation about how many books I borrow from the library….😅

      I’m amazed at how long you manage to wait to listen to Christmas music! But I can so relate: It’s September, and I’m already catching myself singing “All I Want for Christmas Is You” under my breath 😂 😂 Thanks for reading, Naemi! 🤗

  5. Thank you for nominating me, Abby, and sorry for replying so late! I really enjoyed your answers. I also prefer winter, only because summer here is unbearable if you’re not near the sea or up on a mountain. Your questions are very interesting, I’m looking forward to answering them!
