Blog Award – Liebster Award!!!

February17

imagesI am honored and excited to have been nominated for the Liebster Award, an award given out by fellow bloggers to help people discover new blogs. I was nominated by Shakuita Johnson.

The Rules:

  • You must link back to the person who nominated you;
  • Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you;
  • Nominate 11 new bloggers and ask them 11 questions;
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you;
  • You must let the people you nominate know they have been nominated.

Here are the questions Shakuita asked me:

fiction1. What is your favorite genre to read? Why?

I think reading anything helps. I read mostly fiction. For me reading fiction fires up one’s imagination and the stories can “take you away from life” for a few moments and letting your mind and imagination wander in a different way. I also enjoy gaining insights into the psychologies of other cultures and times.

2. If you could be anyone in the world for a day, who would it be? Why?

My husband! :)

I think it would do good to anyone to be their spouse for a day! It would give us a better understanding of how to treat and respect them.

It would also help us understand them better.

best friend3. Who is your best friend? Why?

My best friend’s name is Ivo. He’s my best friend because he understands me. I’ve known him for 12 years and he’s like a brother to me. He always listens to what I’m saying and he gives me advice on the things I can’t figure out on my own.

4. What is the best memory you have? Why?

I do have a few selected memories from my childhood. When my mom told me that she was pregnant, for me, it was the best news ever. I had always longed for a sibling. me and Nina

So, the best one is when I first met my sister. I remember Mom sitting up in bed and letting me hold my sister. I felt such an instant bond with her that I didn’t want to go to the kindergarten or to go out and play whit the other kids. It was amazing to hold my sister and play with her when she was a little, now I can’t imagine the world without having her like my sister.

5. If you could change on moment in your life what would it be?

That’s a tough one, I’m not sure I would change anything. I’m happy and content at the moment. Sure, I’d like to be more financially secure, but I’m doing well nonetheless. But going back and changing things, big things, or embarrassing things – things that impacted me and have helped shape who I am today…… I honestly can’t say that I would want to take those experiences away, those are life lessons – lessons I’ve grown from, they’ve made me a better person in the end. No, I’m good….. I’d rather keep those experiences and hope I never repeat them. :)

6. Is it better to have love in and lost than to never have loved at all?

Love is such an important experience that even the pain of losing someone you love is better than not having loved that person.

7. Where do you do your best thinking?

Walking, Running, Traveling (airplanes, airports, trains, buses), Falling Asleep or Waking Up, In Conversation with Friends, Listening to Audio books or Podcasts, Showering and etc. I think that the great ideas come most when you aren’t trying to think of them.

8. If you could change your name, what would it be? Why?

MegI don’t have anything in particular against my name. I’ve grown used to it. It’s like a favorite T-shirt: familiar, comfortable, and easy to wear.

My parents have chosen this name on purpose, so I respect them and honor their decision.

9. iPhone or Android?

Honestly, having looked at Android and iPhone, I chose the iPhone. Faster, easier to use, more compatible with work. Overall, a better experience for me as a user.

10. What do you think of social media?

Before social media, everything was in what must now seem like slow motion. We would hear of breaking news on TV if we happened to be awake, but we wouldn’t be able to confirm anything until we ran out to the driveway the next morning for the latest issue of The Washington Post, The New York Times, or the local newspaper.

Now social media is a powerful tool; and we have to use it well if we want to succeed and be successful.

11. If you could start up your own business what would it be?

Running your own business is a stressful but good career and life choice. It demands your time and focus. Since I like to read and write if I have the money I would open a self-publishing house. I think this way I can do what I love, I can help other authors and I can be able to make money and support my family as well.

Well there you have it folks! My little tidbits! Here are my nominees for the Liebster Award:

Please answer these questions before accepting your award:

  1. What is your biggest goal in life?

  4. If you are allowed to do just one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  5. What do you think of this expression: Where there was fire, ashes remain?

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 9.10.50 AMHere’s what you’ve been waiting for! I had the chance to meet Aubrey Joy. She is a young woman who leaves her unique and honest life. There are a few things that struck me about Aubrey‘s experiences. First, she likes being a dancer and reader. The most two amazing things for me on her age. :) Second she is interested in almost everything. She is good at a lot of her school activities and she loves doing all of them. Aubrey have many interests,  and she is great at all of them, because she is passionate about all. This amazing girl agree to share with me and you guys her story and why she start her amazing blog – YA Book Reviews.

“If one cannot enjoy a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ~Oscar Wilde

So, here is her guest post! Hope you will enjoy it! :)

:) :) :) Hey there! My name is Aubrey Joy and I’m a 14-year old and am a freshman in high school. :) :) :)

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 9.09.34 AM<= Aubrey with her best girl friends Kaitlyn and Lauren!

I live in a small town in Iowa on a farm. My dad is a farmer and he drives trucks for a local company and my mom is hair dresser and nail technician. My brother is a seventh grade student at the local middle school and he’s in dance, football, and soccer. He is in tap, jazz, modern, and ballet for dance and he claims he doesn’t like it, but he does. I’m at the dance studio 8 hours a week doing ballet, Pointe, lyrical, modern, tap and jazz.

Dancing and reading are some of the most important things in my life as of right now. When I grow up I would like to be a professional ballet dancer at a small ballet company. I would like to travel the world and help over the summer with building houses or something of that nature.

After being a dancer I would love to do something with reading. If I ever got a great idea I would possibly write a story, but as of right now I would love to be part of a publishing company. I would love to get to edit stories that already are there, but add something to it.

How to write a guest post pic 1<= Aubrey’s Blog Page!

I started my blog in December of 2013 because I wanted to have a blog or YouTube channel all about books. I decided to have a blog because you can be more prepared for it and it doesn’t matter if you sound scripted. I like the way my written words sound as well. I’ve been a reader for as long as I can remember.

My mom used to read my younger brother and I the books I Love You Like Crazy Cakes and The Kissing Hand. I recall reading Junie B. Jones and The Magic Tree house in early elementary school, and then starting to read Nancy Drew in fourth grade. The book that got me really into reading, though, was Esperanza Rising. That was my favorite book all through elementary and I read it 5 or 6 times. I didn’t really understand it all that well because some of it was in Spanish, but I continued reading it because I loved the story.

harry potters books mortal instruments booksDuring fourth grade, my teacher read our class one of my favorite books of all time, Tuck Everlasting. We watched the movie right after we read the book and I remember all my classmates saying how much better the movie was than the book, but I was pointing out all that the movie did wrong. By the beginning of middle school I had started reading the Harry Potter books and that definitely kick-started my reading. I only read up until number four, but plan on continuing on with the series for sure. Eighth grade was when I discovered The Mortal Instruments books which soon became my favorite series. After reading The Fault in Our Stars, it quickly became my absolute favorite book of all time. I read this wonderful John Green novel at the beginning of my freshman year.

When I read books, I get absolutely immersed into the story’s world. When I’m stressed out or in need of a break from my life, I pick up my book. When I’m mad or irritated with my friends or my family I pick up my book and become part of the story. I buy way too many books because that’s just what I do. For gifts all I ask for are different books, it’s kind of a problem actually… :)

Like I said above, I have a blog that I started in December of last year. One of the main reasons I started a blog in the first place was because none of my friends really cared when I told them they should read a book. They kind of disregarded my recommendations because they aren’t really readers. I wanted to post my opinions online because I thought it would be fun to connect with people who enjoy the same things that I do.

Thank you so much for wanting me to post on your blog! It was wonderful getting to know you!

P.S. If you have any questions to ask, Aubrey would be glad to answer all of them, me too. :) :) :)

My questions areWhat you guys think of Aubrey’s journey and her experience with reading books and writing book reviews? Do you think more young people /kids/ should read as much as she did, or no? Do you believe that kids form small towns and communities are more open to books, sports, dancing and etc.?

Tell me what you think, I would love to read your comments, discuss and try to see from your point of view… :) Happy Sunday!
