One Lovely Blog Award/Versatile Blogger Award

Look at me – dual blogging award it up in here! I’m apparently all about consolidating now. Yay me?

Anyway, I would like to thank three lovely bloggers for each of their nominations of me (that sounds so weird). First, I would like to thank Ava over at Reads, Rhythms, and Ruminations for the One Lovely Blog Award. She has just an amazing blog full of anime and YA book fun, and she’s such a super nice person as well! Check out her post here!

Sophie @ Blame Chocolate also nominated me for the one lovely blog award, and trust me, she has one herself! It’s a YA based book blog, but it’s filled with so much more. And she likes chocolate and cats – it’s perfect. Check out her post here!

I would also love to thank Olga @ Olga’s Oddish Addiction for the Versatile Blogger Award. Check out her blog post here – which was so much fun and shows her hilarious personality. Her blog is full of more YA bookish fun as well!

Since the rules are pretty much the same for both of the awards, I figured I would just put them all together in one blog post and you won’t have to suffer with fourteen random facts from me…or me yanking out hair trying to come up with that many too, lol. Anyway, let’s begin!

My Facts:Β 

I used to have a game show addiction.Β 

I grew out of watching kids shows really early on as a kid, so why all my other friends were still watching Disney Channel shows and Nickelodeon, I was watching Law and Order and game shows. I had no real clue what was going on or why I was drawn to them, but I was so interested. A bunch of game shows are becoming popular again, and the addiction might be getting real again. Help me.

I used to also really be into soap operas as well. Like the super cheesy ones.

Yeah, it was problematic. I was the ten-year-old watching soap operas and game shows. I’m not sure if I really understood what was going on or I realized this was probably not the smartest thing for me to be watching. But I would have to watch all my soaps when I got home from school. πŸ˜„ What’s weird is that I used to love the melodrama on these shows, but I now hate it in books?

snow-white

So sorry, Snow.

I really don’t like Snow White.

Like, as the Book Princess who loves Disney Princesses, I clearly should love all Princesses, but I’m just not a fan of Disney Snow White. Like, I actually like the Kristen Stewart Snow White than the Disney version. And I hate myself a little bit for it? πŸ˜„ I do get into Snow White retellings, though. I think mainly it was her voice I didn’t like.

I’m so distracted by Now You See Me 2 right now that I’ve lost all focused (focus but I think that totally illustrates my point).

Like, magic just blows my mind, and I get all confused and things, and this series just messes with me. And Dave Franco is a total cutie.

By now, I totally thought that I would be reading adult – or big girl – books.

And it’s totally messing with me that my predominant reading genre is YA – but I’m still loving every second of it.

I could live on chicken strips.

I kind of do, too. They’re terrible for my health but so delicious.

Shhhhh…but I DNF’d every Harry Potter book I picked up.

I always tried to read them after I watched the movies, but I never wanted to go back and read the old ones – because I saw the movies and I totally knew what had happened, right? I was a kid. It seemed logical. Anyway, I never got through them because I was super confused on what was going on and always died out on them before the next movie came out. Eventually it will happen – I think.

Those are my facts! Thanks so much to Ava and Olga – and please go check out their wonderful blogs! Now for my nominations who I chose from some of my recent followers, commenters, and more – but all lovely bloggers nonetheless!

Rendz @ Readingwithrendz / Nadwa @ painfullyfictional / blurblessbookblogger / Annike and Zoe @ TwinTalesBookReviewsΒ (literally all of my comments disappear from your blog btw XD) / Syc @ The Lit Mermaid / The Mundane Teenage Life / amysbookcorner / Kester @ LILbooklovers / WhereBookAddictsMeet / desrandomthoughts / bookbumzuky / Tiana @ The Book Raven / Victoria @ Carton-Manette-Darnay / Eva @ Brilliantly Bookish / thesassygeek

Now, since I did a combo post, feel free to do one or both of them (both…one…neither, up to you)! I know some of you have been nominated for one or the other in the past, so…yeah! It’s also another opportunity to just show some blog love. Now, I’m off to go binge watch the rest of this movie!

    I can do a perfect Disney Snow White singing impression lol, you’d hate it! Your chicken strips fact made me think of that vine of the guy in the car :’) Thanks for the tag Mandy!! I don’t think I’ve done either of these so I’m gonna do both, yay! πŸ™‚

    Yay a dual post! A law and order fan?! YES. Who’s your favorite or at least back then who was? I’m Detective Benson but you gotta love ADA Rafael Barba. I definitely agree on not liking the melodrama in books but soap operas- I’ve never watched any so I would be no classified expert. Oh Snow White isn’t the fairest of all then (DISNEY JOKE HAHA). Ummm let me stop myself there before I say more ridiculous stuff. Have you seen Dave Franco’s polaroids on Instagram? Might I say, WOWZA. YA lover till the day I no longer like chocolate thank you. I don’t think you will ever catch me reading “Adult Books” for another millennium or two. You see you will be able to live off chicken strips if I don’t gobble them up all first… I’m sure many have done that with the series and it does make sense since your meant to be surprised when reading. Loved reading the excellent facts! This dual post was amazeballs.

      Benson and Barba are amzinggggggg. I was a Stabler lover although he was so problematic. But Finn is amazing too.

And omg noooooo, I will have to hunt down these Instagram pics! Lol, yes, we will both be eating chicken strips and reading YA together – yay! πŸ˜„ and thanks so much, Olga!

        Yea I really missed Elliot BUT when Amaro came in there was less tension so I thought maybe it’s for the best. LUCKY. I usually just have a binge night on Friday with the episodes. The William Lewis ones always got me aggravated. AW THANK YOU. I try what can I say. *flips hair* *coughs up a hairball* Still classy eh? Don’t worry you’re already the master on everything princess. You need too! Dave Franco did it justice. Yes! It’s the perfect book club night but I might sneak in some chicken nuggets that way I don’t devour the chicken strips under five minutes…😊No problem Mandy and thanks for being awesome!

        YES. I don’t like Rollins. She just seems…I don’t know. I agree that I just don’t feel her. But I hated Carisi at first, but now I kind of love him?

        The only reason I dealt with Rollins or even begun to is because she had a baby. Babies are adorable and my weakness!! Aahh the mustache.

    This was hilarious Mandy! My family watched a lot of novellas when I was a kid (spanish soap operas) which contained a lot of content kids should not be watching! Chicken strips are delicious! I have never watched Snow White and frankly it doesn’t interest me. I’ve never read Harry Potter, I’ve only ever seen that very last movie! So I understood nothing! I’ve never had much in reading them either. Thanks for the nomination and this was a great post, Mandy!! πŸ’–

      Omg, yes, I know. Me and my one friend would occasionally watch a few of the novellas and yeah, no, not very kids oriented. Did you Watch Rebelde? I’m pretty sure that was how it was spelled. Chicken strips are the besttttt. And yeah, Snow White is just….I would stick with the no interest πŸ˜„ and yay about finding another non Harry potter person! I always feel so left out.

    Thanks for nominating us! And great idea dual posting! I’m going to have to do that since I’m so far behind on awards and tags! (I blame school and homework for this!)
    I actually had a Jeopardy addiction when I was younger! I would watch it every single day… until it got old for me. Now all I watch is Fresh Off the Boat and Shark Tank… and Designated Survivor is coming back on!!!! I’m so excited!!!
    (P.S. I have read the Harry Potter books and liked them, but I don’t think I’ll be re-reading them. I am part of the fandom, but I’m not one of those big HP fanatics that read it again every year! πŸ˜…)

      Oh goodness what soaps didn’t I watch, lol? My favorite and the one I stuck with the longest was General Hospital. I did watch One Life to Live, All My children, Days of Our Lives, and for a short time, The Young and the Restless. The first three were the ones I really watched, though. Do you watch soaps, Birdie?

        I watched ABC soaps almost all my life. My mom watched them, back when Loving was still on. Then I carried on. General Hospital has always been my favorite, and even though I don’t watch regularly anymore I still follow all the gossip online so I always know what’s going on. They’re like an obsession!

        I always found that ABC had the best soaps. They were so addicting. I don’t watch it anymore but occasionally I will see it on and get super interested in it again. I was always a big Jason and Sam fan and when Steve Burton left, it was kind of the end for me. Who were some of your favorites?

      • Birdie says:

        Oh man, I haven’t watched since Steve Burton left either! He is the ONLY Jason. I liked Jason and Sam too, but I actually loved his friendship with Carly more. I love how long their relationship has spanned and how devoted they were to each other, as friends. Not to take it back to far, but I loved early Liz and Lucky too. And I love Sonny and Carly. I definitely love the slightly more twisted couples, haha.

        Yes! It just wasn’t the same after he was gone and then they got that new guy and it just threw me. I couldn’t do it after that. I literally couldn’t think of the new guy as Jake other than as Jake, not new Jason. His friendship with Carly was the best. I know there was a lot of people that wanted him to be in a relationship with her, but I thought them shooing a true and caring planktonic relationship was it at its best. I sadly missed a lot of early Liz and Lucky but I did enjoy them when they got back together the seconding time? And Osmny and Carly were always great….although I may have been odd out but I liked Carly and jax together as well. πŸ˜„

        I actually liked Carly and Jax too, but because it was so unexpected. He was always the good to Sonny’s bad. I love opposites attract. I can’t think of the new guy as Jason either, and actually I did keep watching after Steve Burton first left, but only because I kept hoping he’d come back. It’s not the first time he left, but he always found his way back to being Jason Morgan. When the new guy came on, it was like the nail in the coffin. I remember watching when Jason and Carly first met (I was pretty young, haha) and they did have something that could have been romantic. And I wanted it back then. BUT, I was always happy that even when that romance went away they never lost their love for each other as friends. In his own way, and as much as Sam hated it, he always made Carly a priority and I loved that.

        Yes! I think that’s why I enjoyed it so much as well. He was so drastically different than sonny, and you couldn’t help be drawn into it. I think at the time I also enjoyed because that meant Courtney and Nik could be together too so I didnt feel bad for Courtney πŸ˜„ bur yes! You said it perfectly – my feelings as well about the new Jason. I missed when they first had that hint of something but in the flashbacks you could always see the electricity between them. I could definitely see where the ship could come in. How did you feel about Jason and Elizabeth? Because that gave me some major angst πŸ˜„

        I can see it. I did like the bond that they had, but I have to say, I had so much bad angst over them. When I first started, it was Jason and Sam together and Lucky and Liz together, so I had it in my head that they couldn’t be with anyone else. And then when it all switched, it made me so upset. πŸ˜„ I had too many feels that I had to take a break for a bit, lol.

    It’s okay if you never got into HP books. I don’t think I would’ve, had I seen the movies first.

    I hate cheesy drama, but we all have our guilty pleasures lol. Soap Operas were yours. 😁

    Snow white is so sweet and pure. But yeah, a little annoying as well. But hey you should give her another chance, she’s still fun.
