I was so kindly nominated/tagged (I don’t know the right word anymore, lol) by Joana over at Bookneeders for the Versatile Blogger Award! She has a fantastic blog covering all things bookish including reviews from manga to YA and more, and so much more! Check it out here, and thanks so much again, Joana!
1) Display the award on your blog.
2) Thank the blogger that nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
3) Share 7 facts about yourself.
4) Nominate 10 bloggers for the award and provide links to their blog.
I never know what to say for those facts about yourself. I just kind of stare at them blankly, trying to come up with something interesting to me – which is super hard because I’m always like this with specific book questions, like books, I read books? You want me to book a book? That’s the same. Me? Interesting facts? Do I even exist to have interesting facts?
Let’s try this?
I didn’t actually pick out the name, Book Princess Reviews.
My dad was the one that came up with it. I was super stuck on blog names, and the only two names that I came up with, Hearts and Pages or Queen of Hearts Books because I was in obsessed with Heartless at the time and super into the Queen of Hearts aesthetic…but I don’t even like Alice in Wonderland so that was a bit problematic. I thankfully ended up with this, and I don’t understand how this wasn’t the choice from the start.
I don’t know how to ride a bike.
As an adult(ish) person, I should have been riding a bike a long, long time ago like any normal person. And I mean, I was going to, but once I got the training wheels off, I was paranoid about falling. And that was it. Paranoia and logic convinced me that I didn’t have time for that in my life and needed to go on safer pursuits…that didn’t involve me falling off a bike.
I consider myself a bit of a book hipster.
I tend to stay away from books that are overly hyped up or getting a ton of press about it. I’m convinced that I’m going to constantly be Captain Unpopular Opinion with it, and I talk myself out of reading it. I actually almost missed reading Cinder by Marissa Meyer, which was the start of one of my favorite series ever, because I had heard too much about it. Insanity, I’m aware. I’ve gotten so much better about it, though, but I’m still a bit of a hipster by heart…except in the usual hipster sense of the word.
I can’t watch horror movies.
I honestly can’t. I’ve watched two – one was more of a thriller than anything and the other was from the corner of my eye, so I’m not really sure I can count either of those. Give me a horror/ghost book – I’m good. A movie? Never.
One of my cats is named after a Twilight character.
It was a trying time. And I let my mom borrow my books. She became addicted to that name, and my cat will always have the intense name of Jasper no matter how many odd nicknames I give him. Don’t get me wrong – I love the name, but I think he sometimes subconsciously knows he was named after a sparkly vampire and will decide to bite your hand off.
I don’t actually have a bookshelf.
There are bookshelves in my house, but I only have one shelf on those. Where most of my books are in my house is my desk which has a few shelves that could work for part of a bookshelf. That’s why there are not a lot of shelfies are taken because it doesn’t look as cool as a bookshelf would.
It has taken me entirely too long to create this post.
I never know what is interesting or not, so I’ve taken about an hour now just randomly thinking about random facts, vetoing them, and then playing on Twitter, hoping something will happen to me on there (update: no, nothing happened).
Thanks so much again to Joana! Check her blog out here!
I had a weird system to doing this tagging. Know how you play the game MASH? Well, I swirled my mouse around a bit like that and whoever’s wonderful blog it landed on got the nomination to share the versatile love! The things I do to entertain myself. 😄 Feel free not to do it if you’ve already did it or don’t feel like, but I would love to see your cool facts!

The swirls of my mouse has spoken. I tried? 😄 It was actually weirdly fun. Maybe I start making all decisions this way?
