Booky Thoughts and Me

Book reviews and pondering thoughts of a down to earth person

The Booker Award

1 Comment

A while back I received a lovely comment on my blog, a nomination for The {Booker Award } from Asha over at Asha’s Literary Corner. I love seeing readers coming to my blog and reading the book reviews that I write as well as any other random posts that I post. It always makes me giddy to see that people actually are interested in reading what I write. When I saw this post and that I was nominated, I was so excited! My first blog award! 🙂 Here’s a bit of information of what The {Booker} Award is all about from Asha’s blog:

The {Booker}Award is a prize for literary and book-centered blogs. And I take this opportunity to nominate all those adorable book blogs that like mine are about nothing but books!

The {Booker}Award is for book blogs only! The deserving blogs must be at least 50% about books, reading, book-reviewing etc.

  • On being awarded with The {Booker}Award, you must share with readers your top five favorite books you have read in your life so far.
  • On being awarded with The {Booker}Award, you must share with readers your most favorite author/writer. Possibly, also the reason why you like their literary work.
  • On being awarded with The {Booker}Award, you must share with readers your favorite genres.
  • (This is self-invented) Why are books SPECIAL in your life? This is optional and you don’t really have to answer it. But would love to know your reasons nonetheless.
  • You must give this award to five or ten or any number of other lucky book blogs that you adore.
  • And least importantly, show-off the award on your site and link it back to me

The book bloggers whose blogs I have been following and absolutely love their writing/blogs are:

Book Nerd, Bewitched Bookworms, Browsing Bookshelves, Midnight Bloom Reads, Word for Teens, Book Nook and many more. 🙂

Top Five Favorite Books

The Alchemist

A Walk to Remember

Where The Heart Is

The Power of One

In The Orchard, the Swallows

Favorite Author/Writer

Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb

Why?

Although Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb is not a classic literary writer, she is a favorite of mine. She has two genres with one of them under a pseudonym. I know that whenever I pick up a book of hers I will not be disappointed and I will be taken away into a world that helps me escape reality. I have a lot of other favorite authors but I’ll just list one.

Favorite Genres

Romance

Suspence/Myster

Historical

Supernatural/Science fiction

YA

SPECIAL?

Books have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. My parents always read to me, and I just picked it up over time. It wasn’t until around grade 7/8 that I became an avid reader not just a casual reader. Books let me escape reality, especially in those really tough times where I feel as though I don’t belong anywhere. They let me feel safe and there is no judgement.
