The Outstanding Blogger Award

Well, this is a new one! A big thanks to the lovely Abby at Beyond the Read for nominating me .. always feel appreciated when these things happen. Our community is awesome!

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.
  2. Answer the questions provided.
  3. Create 7 unique questions.
  4. Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator nor the blogger that nominated you can be nominated.
  5. At the end of 2020, every blog that pings-back the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award!

Note: I’m not sure if #5 will be edited to now be 2021.

The Questions

Who is your blogging inspiration?

Hmm, I don’t know that I have one. I do find myself inspired or influenced by other bloggers or book Instagrammers, but there isn’t just one person. I know this is sort of a lame response, but easiest I could say is the book community as a whole is inspiration.

What are the three most recent additions to your TBR?

  1. How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right: & Other Essays on Modern Life by Pandora Sykes
  2. The Shape of Darkness by Laura Purcell
  3. Red Widow by Alma Katsu

What’s your latest non-bookish obsession?

Hmm, let’s see. First thing to come to mind is the show Prodigal Son. Other than entertainment things, I would say interior decor/ decorating .. I’m still in the long process of decorating my new place and I’m always looking at inspiration.

Pick two, drop one: plot, characters, or writing?

Ooh this hard! Okay, I think I’m okay with dropping characters and keeping plot and writing. Writing was an easy choice for me, if it’s terrible writing, then nothing else works either. I chose plot because I read for the journey, to find out what’s going on. Though that’s hard without characters …

Do you play any instruments?

Sadly, no.

Where do you feel most at peace?

In the forest/ mountains. Something about hearing the calm and the wind rustling through the tops of the trees.

What’s your favorite fall drink?

While I will drink this year round, it still applies – Chai Tea Latte.


Sorry it took so long to complete this! I was clearly tagged months ago, whoops! While I usually don’t ‘tag’ people anymore, I still want to show appreciation to the following bloggers for all of their hard and lovely work. No worries if you don’t want to do the tag! :)
