One Lovely Blog Award

I wasn’t planning on uploading this today but the post I was working on didn’t exactly turn out as I wanted it so instead I am here, with another award nomination. I have to say a massive thank you to the amazing Giselle @ The Perks of Being a Reader and Sabrina @ Sabrina’s Stories for nominating me.

First things first, here are the rules:

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

Now that that is settled it’s time to tell you 7 facts about myself. I already know I’ll have a hard time thinking about this so I’ll see you after I write down the facts unless I end up frying my brain, which is a possibility. Here we go:

1. I’m a Psychology Graduate. It was my first choice of majoring but I learnt in a sad way that it was not for me. I mean, I love Psychology, it is incredibly interesting but my major was a huge disappointment. When I said I learnt that the sad way I mean that I’ve basically lost 4 years of my life.

2. I’m now studying English Studies which involves Culture and Literature of English speaking countries. I decided to start a new major because 1) I love English (I’m what people call an Anglophile) and 2) I love reading and literature. And I also know that I want to dedicate my life to books so my goal is to work in the publishing world which is gonna be hard but hey!, at least I know now this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.

3. I’m not exactly a bookaholic. I’m a book hoarder, a collector. I buy way too many books (I’m trying not to) but I regret nothing because my brain needs feeding and only words and books can do that.

4. I’m quite the crier. I cry with almost everything, especially books but even some ads on TV make my eyes watery…. Oh, they could be both sad and/or happy tears.

5. I’m too disorganised. Seriously, I’m a walking mess.

6. I’m a huge Disney fan, I'm really am. I know all the songs BUT unfortunately in recent years when I listen to some of the songs or watch some of the films there are stuff that I don’t really like about them. Have you listened to Ursula’s song? The lyrics are very sexist and hearing to that one in particular is unbearable… And is a shame because The Little Mermaid was one of my favs… And is not the only one

7. I’m a Leo. This is a lame fact but I couldn’t think of anything else and also I wanna know if any of you is a Leo as well.

And finally my nominations (it’s hard to nominate 15 people who haven’t been nominated already so I’m sorry if I nominate someone who has already been):  

1. Jess @ My Reading Dress
2. Jules @ The Book of Jules
3. Lauren @ A Blonde Librarian
5. Benni @ Benni's Bookbiters
6. Connie Lu @ The YA Book Thief

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
