Nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

I’m so excited to be nominated for this!  Thank you to The Book Venom for choosing me.

The rules:

  1. Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Answer the questions the nomination has provided.
  3. Nominate ten other bloggers.
  4. Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.

Here are my answers to The Book Venom’s questions:

1. Do you have a nickname? What is it?

There are so few ways of twisting ‘Emma’ into any sort of nickname.  ‘Em’ is about as good as it gets.

2. What is your favorite fairy tale?

Beauty and the Beast was always quite moving.

3. Name three books you would like to pass along to your grandchildren!

#1 The Tale of Duck by Helen Cooper.

the tale of duck

A childhood favourite – I’ve memorised every word but would want to show the pictures with the story!

#2 The Giant Jam Sandwich by John Vernon Lord and Janet Burroway

Another childhood classic.

#3 Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Everyone needs this book in their life.

4. What word do you love the sound of?

Onomatopoeia, serendipity, ostentatious.  I love words with lots of syllables (how could I ever pick just one?)

5. If you could be immortal, would you choose to be?

I think living forever would get very lonely after a while.

6. If you could have any question answered, what would it be?

I’m trying to think of something deep and philosophical.  I don’t want to know what the meaning of life is, but perhaps I would ask how the world began.  Even that might create a lot of anguish among people who had believed an alternative story.  This would really take some thought…

7. Name five things you’ve never done but would like to do!
  1. Visit Japan
  2. Publish a novel
  3. Climb a mountain
  4. Have children
  5. Buy a house

(I’m so boring)

8. If you were going to write a book, what would the title be and what would it be about?

I have this paranoia of leaking my novel ideas and them being stolen, so I’ll just use one of my short stories as an example… It would be called The Last Letters, and would be about two people brought together over a box of love letters from World War Two (based loosely on a true story).

9. Do you prefer living in the city or countryside? Why?

They both have their advantages, but the serenity of the countryside always seems to cheer me up.

10. One piece of advice you would give to your younger self is . . .

Don’t think so much, just do.


My nominees:

I’m relatively new to WordPress, and really don’t have ten people I could nominate, so here’s a few book bloggers I love instead.

1. The Geek Undergraduate

2. My Little Book Blog

3. Book Nook Owl

4. Brittany Marie Reads

5. Erika in Bookventureland


My questions:

  1. Describe yourself in three words.
  2. Do you have any goals for the summer?
  3. What is your favourite book?
  4. Where would you most like to travel to?
  5. What was the last book you read?
  6. Do you usually buy or borrow your books?
  7. If you could live in a fictional world, which one would you choose?
  8. What is your favourite book quote?
  9. If you could meet one fictional character, who would you choose?
  10. Which languages can you speak?

    Great answers!
    Alice in Wonderland is absolutely a must for the future kids.
    I’ve visited Japan last year around December but I still want to do it again and see sakura in spring there. Fingers crossed for both of us. XD

      I’m envious of your Japan trip :3 what part of Japan did you visit? I have my eye on Kyoto and Tokyo, if finances allow for both! What is the weather like in December? I’ve heard it is cheaper than visiting during Spring, which is obviously quite appealing! Thanks for the nomination and comment! :3

        Ahh I visit so many places in Japan using the Japan Rail Pass. Have you heard about it? It’s a pass for tourist for an access through all Japan using Shinkansen and any other trains. You should consider buying them before leaving since it only sells outside of Japan for tourist. There are also pass for west/east japan only depends on which places you want to visit.
        The weather was really cold and windy last year. XD

          Your trip sounds wonderful! Yes I have heard of the Japan Rail Pass – I think it is a brilliant idea. Any places you’d definitely recommend visiting?

    I love the sound of the word onomatopoeia as well.

    As fair the answer to question 7 I don’t think it makes you a “boring” person. I myself would like to buy a house, go to Japan, climb a mountain, and have children someday, too. 🙂

    Thank you once again for the nomination. <3

      You’re welcome, thank you for the comment! :3

      True, having children, or any of those things is hardly boring! I figured ‘win the Nobel prize’ or ‘win the Euromillions’ might have been on most people’s to-do lists!
