| BLOG AWARD | SIBLINGHOOD OF THE WORLD BLOGGERS AWARD

siblinghood of the world bloggers award

Hello everyone ! It has been a long time since I posted anything ! Anyway ! Here I am with The Siblinghood Of The World Bloggers Award ! I was tagged by the lovely CW from Read, Think, Ponder ! Thanks you so much for nominating me !

Also, I found this lovely image when typing it on google, I don’t know who designated it (even though I have my idea), if it’s yours please tell me so I can mention you ! (I’ll have to learn to make blog designs, eventually !)

 


Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog in your post.
  2. Answer the questions that the blogger who nominated you has provided.
  3. Nominate ten other bloggers (or up to 10).
  4. Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nominations.

 

Question 1 : If your life was a book genre, what would it be, and why ?

Oooh that’s a tough one to start with ! Well probably fantasy. I would love to be a little more than just a human, a mundane. Maybe a shadowhunter, or an allomancer !

Question 2 : What is a book you had such high hopes for but ultimately disappointed you?

Hmm… Probably The Book Thief. I read so many great things about this book. But I haven’t been able to appreciate it.

Question 3 : What magic/superpower would you want, and which universe would your power come from? (e.g. Earth-bending from Avatar the Last Airbender, magical ability from Harry Potter, etc.)

Allomancy, from the Mistborn series, by Brandon Sanderson. Being able to use some metals to do magic, it would be so amazing !

Question 4 : To get the magical ability/superpower from Question 3, what would you give up in exchange? (It has to be something that you possess, and cannot be bought/sold.)

Again a tough one ! Hmm. Oh wait ! I would give up my job (even if it’s not really something I possess…) to be a full time allomancer !

Question 5 : What is an ending to a book that you hated? (Please tag your spoilers!)

Allegiant !

Question 6 : How would you write the ending from Question 5?

You’re not helping me keeping this spoiler free ! Well, if you’ve haven’t read Allegiant, just skip this and go directly to the next question !
I would change the death that made me cry so many tears.

Question 7 : What is the oldest book (by original publication) you possess and the newest? (Do they have any similarities?)

The oldest one is The Three Musketeers, by alexandre Dumas, in a leather-bound edition. The newest one must be An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir, I think. Both are great books !

Question 8 : Who would you cast as your favourite character?

My favourite character ? Just one ?! Hmm. I’m gonna go for Tessa in The Infernal Devices trilogy ! I … well I have no idea in fact haha ! I keep picturing Tessa, Will and Jem as they are on the photoshoot/trailer (?) that was on Tumblr. I had more ideas for other characters, but there already are TV/movie adaptations so…

Question 9 : What is a theme/motif that you love reading about?

I don’t really have a fav theme. I love fantasy and high fantasy books, such as the Mistborn trilogy, or Harry Potter. But I also love dystopian, contemporary etc…

Question 10 : (Last and easy question!) What is your favourite book-to-movie adaptation?

It’s The Lord Of The Rings, hands down ! No matter how much I like/love/appreciate other book-to-movie adaptations, this one will probably always stay my favorite !

| BLOG AWARD | REAL NEAT BLOG AWARD

Real neat blog awardHello everyone ! First of all I want to thank the lovely Cherry from readforevermore for nominating me !


The rules :

  • Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the 7 questions the nomination has provided.
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers.
  • Create 7 questions for your nominees

What do you pay attention to the most when you’re reading ?

Oh that’s a really tough one ! I don’t really know … Probably the plot. If there’s a lack of consistency, for example, I’ll notice it. Though the most important thing is that I’m convinced by the story, and that I’m compelled to turn the page.

Based on just the cover alone, what book do you love the most?

This one is easier. I’m very fond of The Infernal Devices’ covers, the old ones. Especially Clockwork Princess. I think it’s the most gorgeous cover that I own. I may be biased, though, because it’s also my favorite trilogy.

What is one book that has had an impact on your life?

I may go with Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. First because it was the end of an important era. It’s also the first book I read in English, easily enough. It made me realize that I could read more books in English. It wasn’t immediate, though. I bought the Trylle trilogy by Amanda Hocking like 2 years after reading the last Harry Potter book. But it was the beginning !

What book(s) are you most excited to read this year?

Granted, the year is in its last quarter. But I’m REALLY excited to read 3 books, 2 that I already own, 1 that I still need to buy.

a darker shade of magicA Darker Shade Of Magic, by V.E. Schwab.

I have wanted this book since it came out. But I waited some months before buying it. Don’t ask me why, I don’t really know the answer myself. Now it has been on my TBR shelf for a little more than 2 months, and I can’t wait to read it ! I totally picture myself cuddled in a blanket, drinking hot tea and reading this book.
It will probably be on my next TBR !

An Ember In The AshesAn Ember In  The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.

I heard and read so many great things about this book ! Everyone is raving about it, on Instagram, booktube etc…
Of course I had to get it !
You’ll see this bad boy featured in my September haul.
I cannot wait to start it ! I know that there will be a sequel.

heir of fireHeir Of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

This is the one I still need to buy. I know, I know. Why haven’t I bought it already ? The answer is quite simple (and infuriating) : matching editions. This gorgeous green cover has only been available in paperback since the beginning of this month.
I can’t wait to read more about this incredible story ! I loved the first two books !

What are your top three most listened to songs ?

It always changes. But right now I would say :
– Shut Up + Dance by Walk The Moon
– Shatter Me by Lindsey Stirling
– Photograph by Ed Sheeran.

If you could give one piece of advice to people who don’t like reading, what would you say ?

Find a book you’re intrigued about. A book to movie adaptation amazed you ? Why not try the book ? If you show some interest toward a book, pick it up ! Give it a try ! I’m sure you won’t be disappointed ! 

What is one thing you wish people knew about you ?

I’m addicted to coffee. I love tea, but coffee is what I need in order to stay awake all day long.

polka dots bar smallMy questions

1.What is your 2015 favorite read so far ?
2. Which book deserves more hype in your opinion ?
3. What is the most original book you read ?
4. Which book would you want to see on screen (TV or movie) ?5. Book boyfriend/girlfriend ?
6. What is your favorite manga ?
7. Tell me one thing about you.

| BLOG AWARD | BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD

blogger recognition award

Hello everyone !! I was nominated by the lovely Zezee and the sweet The Bibliotheque  for the Blogger Recognition Award ! Thank you so much !


The Rules

  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
  • Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you’ve nominated in the post.
  • Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image in the right).
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.
  • Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing! 

Flowlessbooks was created a few months ago. In March, right after I passed my thesis. But I had it in mind since last year, I think. I just waited because I wanted to have enough time to take care of it properly.

I started my “bookish adventures” on bookstagram and goodreads way before that but that wasn’t enough. I wanted a place of my own to post my reviews, and other things book related. To be honest, I hesitated between a blog or a booktube channel. But I’m not ready to let you hear my French accent haha !

My advice to new bloggers would be to do it at your own pace. Your blog won’t be perfect the day you create it. It takes time, energy and imagination to create a place that looks like the way you want it. And that’s okay. There’s no need to rush !

The Nominees

That’s it !
Have a nice day !

| BLOG AWARD | THE BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD

the-beautiful-blogger-award

Hello everyone !
I want to thank Jesse Nicholas from booksatdawn for nominating me for the Beautiful Blogger Award. This is such a great honour ! Also the picture featured in this post is his. Gorgeous, right ?


The rules

  • Link to the blogger who took the time to nominate you.
  • List seven random things about yourself.
  • Nominate seven creative, beautiful bloggers.
  • Notify the amazing people that you nominated for the award.

the-beautiful-blogger-awardI’m a French community pharmacist. My dream is to move to London and work there. I love my job (even though I would also be happy doing other jobs, especially book related!) and I fell in love with London. It’s gorgeous and when I went there, I felt at home. Way more than in my own city.

the-beautiful-blogger-awardI’m a huge fan of dance. And I’m not talking about the music. I have taken ballet lessons for 8 years. Then I learned how to dance country, salsa, bachata. Lately, I’m more into techpara. It’s a japanese dance on hyper techno music or on eurodance. (if you want I can show you some videos on youtube)

the-beautiful-blogger-awardAs I cannot live without books, I also cannot live without music. I listen to various styles. I can listen to Taylor Swift’s latest album and then decide to put an Epica’s song. I’m very eclectic. I also like to go to concerts and live shows.

the-beautiful-blogger-awardI’m also addicted to TV shows. I have so many that I like ! Right now I’m trying to finish Revenge before the beginning of October. I also watch Arrow, The Flash, Pretty Little Liars, Black List, Sleepy Hollow, Teen Wolf and many others.

the-beautiful-blogger-awardI’m suffering from a huge lack of confidence. But it’s getting better and better. I’m learning to love myself, even though it’s far from being easy.
I’m also trying to stop comparing myself to other. That’s not easy neither.

the-beautiful-blogger-awardI’m also addicted to nail polishes. I own like 80 bottles. Yeah, I know it’s quite a lot. Before turning it into a bookstagram account, my IG account was mainly about nail polishes. And food. Turning it into a bookstagram account was a really great decision.

the-beautiful-blogger-awardI hate the heat. Summer is my least favorite season. I’d rather be cold and wear a jumper with a comfy scarf instead of sweating every time I make the slightest move.
I also prefer hot beverage. Who cannot enjoy spending the day with a book, under a fluffy blanket with a hot cup of tea/coffee/chocolate ?

That’s all folks ! I hope I didn’t bore you to death !

I nominate :
