Hello, everyone! I’m back from the exam pit and I can finally write posts again *yay*, I also responded to the comments I received while I was on hiatus (I hope I didn’t miss anyone, know that I didn’t do it intentionally if it happened) and I want to thank you for being so supportive. I appreciated all your kind comments and they really kept me going!
This great tag was created by Taiwo @Stuffed Shelves, who is an amazing blogger, you should totally check her blog if you haven’t already! She’s also the person who tagged me and I thought it would be fitting to do it since Valentine’s Day is coming up! Also, the graphic above is made by her and it’s really lovely, isn’t it?
1. What book(s) have you been given as a gift that you loved?
My mom and my aunt got me The Hunger Games series for my birthday and it was the best thing ever. I remember having watched the first movie and I was going with my friends at the cinema to see Catching Fire and I just wanted to read the books before I did it – boom, they did it and I’ve read the whole series in two days. I adored them so much, I need to reread it soon because some people have been talking about Katniss being asexual and now I have to return to those books because YES!
2. What book(s) would you like to give as a gift to someone else?
I would really love to give someone You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone as a gift, I’ve been thinking of buying one for my best friend, so who knows? I just might do it for Valentine’s Day, hmm.
3. If you could gift a random person any bookish item, what would it be?
I’m not sure, maybe candles? Everybody likes candles, right? I don’t own any of the bookish candles I keep on seeing on Twitter and I would really love one because they look amazing. So, yap, I would gift that to someone.
4. If you could gift a random person any non-bookish item, what would it be?
If it’s a not a bookish item, then it gotta go. Sorry. I’m not the one making the rules.
Probably something related to movies or tv shows because I’m a huge nerd and I refuse to gift anything, but nerdish things!
5. What do you say when a person gives you a gift you don’t like?
Well, I thank them because I’m not awful. I try to look as happy as I can (I’m very bad at faking my facial expressions, I’m the worst). And the gift usually ends up somewhere in my house while I ignore its existence forever.
6. Mention a book based around Valentine’s Day.
I can’t think of any. I really tried, but instead of this, I will just list my favourite couples, so you can read those books on Valentine’s Day and squel about the otp feels.
7. Mention any two tips for blogging as a gift to other bloggers and to those who may want to start a blog.
Keep interacting with other bloggers, be dedicated to your blog and posting and try to schedule your posts ahead because it’s going to help you a lot!!
8. Link to some posts by other bloggers that you loved or were very helpful.
