the outstanding blogger award | blogmas day 5

hey~ procrastination has truly overtook me hence why i’m only at blogmas day FIVE but it’s already december 17. i already knew this would happen before i even started blogmas so i’m not very surprised. i do feel bad about not posting as much as i promised. however, still going to take this at my own pace and go with the flow.

today’s post will be another book tag. unlike the one for blogmas day 2, baby it’s cold outside, this is an award! thank you to the lovely sam @literarydelirium for nominating me for the outstanding blogger award! i’m incredibly honoured that you thought of me. you’re too sweet!

Questions:

☾ What genre of books would you associate the winter season with? ☾

for someone who has never truly experienced winter in its own entirety, it took me awhile to think about this answer. for this chilly season, i would prefer to be snuggled up with a good mystery/thriller novel OR a romantic contemporary love story.

☾ If there’s one scene you could delete in a book, what would it be? ☾

i have no idea. as much as i would like to get rid of so many painful scenes, it still made my reading experience as it was.

☾ What fictional character do you think you most probably wouldn’t get along with? ☾

read they both die at the end by adam silvera recently and totally hated peck. i couldn’t believe he was so salty and did what he did. and to my friends who has read the book, how did you recover from this heartbreak?

☾ What is a genre that you’d like to read more of in 2021? ☾

most probably historical fiction and literary fiction. i’ve been collating 2021 book releases into my personal database but most of them are from the fantasy, sci-fi, or romance genre. if you are aware of any upcoming releases in those two genres that i mentioned, let me know!

☾ How would you describe your reading year in a gif? ☾

i mean, i did read more than 400 books which is a personal achievement unlocked. i don’t think i can ever read this many books in a single year anymore so i’m congratulating myself. EVERYBODY DANCE WITH ME~

☾ What is a book that you’d recommend to people that are new to the YA genre? ☾

if you’re new to YA, read these violent delights by chloe gong for an awesome romeo and juliette retelling set in 1920s shanghai, felix ever after by kacen callender that has great representation, and for lots of political intrigue in the city of brass by s.a. chakraborty.

☾ Share a quote from one of your favourite books! ☾

“Strange, isn’t it? To love a book. When the words on the pages become so precious that they feel like part of your own history because they are.”

– erin morgenstern, the starless sea

  2. 400 books?! I am in awe of your skills Belle!! Ahh I love historical fiction so I’m really happy to hear you’ll be getting into the genre… one 2021 hist fic release I’m looking forward to would be The Rose Code by Kate Quinn – her two other war novel stand-alone are incredible with so much action, I would recommend it if you haven’t read them! Ahh thank you so much for the nomination Belle! 💗
