πŸ˜†Β  πŸ˜†Β  πŸ˜†Β  πŸ˜† OK I apologize. I know I’m not funny, but a girl can try. Actually, the hamster thing is true:

Ok, let’s get serious, though I really don’t know what to say, I already shared too much in other posts haha πŸ˜…

  • Thing 1:Β  An anecdote: My grandmother started buying me books and teaching me English at the age of 0, so my mom protested because there’s this fact (superstition?) that if you learn to read too early you’ll develop a speech impairment, so she forbade me to read. But my grandma was a secret agent and didn’t give a rat’s ass, so one day my other grandma came to visit and after spending some time with me alone, she went and told my mom how cool is that I can read at the age of 3 (almost 4). My mom was like heeell no wtf? So I whipped out my favorite children’s songbook and started to read fluently af. My mom was like:

So thanks grandma, I have read something every day since. ❀️‍

 

  • Thing 2:Β  My top 10 favorite bands/musicians: Isis, Deftones, Tool, Cult of Luna, God is an Astronaut, Joy Division, Misfits, KMFDM, White Lies, Chelsea Wolfe, Massive Attack, Wolfnote, Royal Blood, Ramin Djawadi (the guy who does Game of Thrones music). Did I say ten?

 

  • Thing 3: My great-grandfather was a famous Serbian satirist and aphorist. There is a literary award dedicated in his name, Vladimir BulatoviΔ‡ Vib, awarded to the best young satirists in Serbia.

Malanie’s questions:

 

1. If you had a million dollars, what would you spend it on?

1/4 on books, 3/4 on travels. I would definitely buy the Barnes & Noble leather bound classics and Knickerbocker editions, and The Lord of the Rings boxed set first! And I would travel to the Easter Island first because that’s the most expensive, most unrealistic, and my biggest wish in life.

I just need to see the moai before I die you guys! πŸ˜₯
2. What hyped book, do you hate/dislike?

Ohohooo, I will get some hate now, but anything by Sarah J. Mass. Sorry, not sorry. To be fair, I would have probably read her if she wrote when I was 14.
3. What is your worst and best trait?

Oh man I could write a blog post on the first one! But I won’t. Let’s choose overthinking and questioning everything as the worst, because that harms me the most. For the best you’d have to ask my friends, but I would choose the one where I selflessly help people, I do that often even if people don’t quite get it, and I do it because – well I don’t know? Sometimes when I do, I even harm myself in return, but I do it again and again. It feels rewarding to know you’ve helped someone.
4. What is the most interesting thing you’ve read this week?

I’m currently reading The Price Guide to the Occult, and it’s really good so far. I’ve expected a trashy YA romance, but here we are on 40% and it is not. πŸ™‚
5. If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

Lol my mom would wreak havoc and tear the bars to get me out because everyone would instantly know I’m innocent. I’m one of those people who look left, then right, then left again before crossing the street, and if a car still hits me I apologize. I’m the kind of people who have a feeling they’ve stolen something any time they exit a store, even though they never did. I am also stupid.

 

I hereby nominate:

 

Amalia @ The Opinionated Reader

Cat @ CatFairy Books

Frankie @ Freed by Fiction

Grainne @ Darkly Whimsical Reader

Hana @ Lady Bibliotaph

Kara @ Bernard’s Book Blog

Lacy @ A Ravenclaw Library

Marianna @ Marianna’s Corner

Mo @ Jedi Library

Norrie @ Reading Under the Blankie

 

My questions for the nominees:

  1. Is there anything you’re proud of doing/achieving and what is it?
  2. In your perfect dictatorship day-dream, which book would you ban and which one you’d give to the masses for free?
  3. If Edward Cullen bit you and you gained immortality, what would you dedicate your life to? After being properly disinfected and de-sparkled of course.
  4. Imagine your ultimate reading moment – the setting, the time, the weather conditions, the chair coziness aspect, every bit.
  5. Why is a raven like a writing desk? πŸ˜… (this is the weird/funny question obviously)

 

My best post:

Hmm I don’t consider none the best, but this one sure is the longest one: https://booksofmagic.wordpress.com/2018/03/19/book-review-seraphina/

  1. Ahhh thank you for nominating me!!! Your answers are perfect, lmao. And the thing about Sarah J. Maas! I’ve never read her books, but EVERYONE is talking about them, and I’ve been wondering if they’re really *that* good. Though I’ll probably never read them cause I have this weird “I don’t wanna read it cause it’s super hyped up” thing. Also. Your grandparents sound so cool. That’s so neat that you have a famous great-grandpa! And OVERTHINKING DUDE WE ARE 100% THE SAME PERSON.

    1. Now, don’t overthink this one *wink wink*, but if you want to read a book about a notorious assassin who likes pretty dresses, and whose most daring deed was to throw a potted plant on someone’s head out of spite, then go ahead with SJM xD I mean those books were obviously written for teens, not to mention the author was 16 when she wrote the first one, so even though I love fantasy…meh, not my cup of tea :/ The hype can be wrong, as I unluckily found out when I read Caraval (shudders) :S

      Thanks! And I can’t wait to see your answers hehe πŸ˜€ We are clones Kara, like the ones in Orphan Black, but the opposite – mind clones xD

  2. thank you πŸ™‚ ❀

    Secret agent grandma!! Love it!!
    My Grandma is german and she used to speak to my mum in German. But when i was born they stopped, because they were worried that they might corrupt me with "bad grammar and weird dialect"… so, although i studied german in school for 12 years, i'm not very good at it anymore since i don't use it.
