Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

I was tagged in another post for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by Shantelle Mary Hannu. Thanks, Shantelle! And since tags are fun and so are her questions, I thought, why not? (I have ideas for more serious article-ish posts, but I'm not sure when I'll get time to write them up, especially with basement finishing and Camp NaNo happening at the same time, so they'll probably have to wait. Hopefully I'll have one written and scheduled by the time this goes up, but it's imperative I get it right, so I don't know.) Anyway, let's get on with the tag!

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  • Put the award logo on your blog.
  • Answer the ten questions sent to you.
  • Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
  • Nominate ten blogs.

Shantelle's Questions:

  • What genre have you read most of this year? Fantasy, primarily fairytale retellings, actually. I love fantasy. It's amazing.

  • Do you enjoy fairy tales? Which ones do you like most? I do. I actually, um, have always been quite intrigued by Rumplestiltskin. As far as more princess oriented ones go, I like Beauty and the Beast and the Disney version of Rapunzel. I'm not sure Frozen exactly counts, but I love it.

  • Favorite dessert? Ice cream. It's just so good. Especially on brownies with M&Ms and chocolate syrup and peanuts and caramel. Yum.

  • Which Disney princess are you most like and why? Disney princess quizzes say I'm Anna, and I'm completely okay with that. We're both quirky, don't think before we speak, want to help people, and value our relationship with our sister(s). But I would never agree to marry a man I just met that day. I'm with Elsa on that one.

  • Which Disney prince do you consider the most dashing? That's...a bit of an awkward question for someone like me, since I'm not the type of girl who gets any sort of crushes. But I'll go with Kristoff, even though he's not technically a prince (yet) because he's good and honest and honorable.

  • What was your favorite blog post this year? Hmm. Maybe "Magic in Christian Fantasy." It was an issue I greatly struggled with in my writing, and this helped both to solidify my thoughts on the issue and help others who struggle with the same thing.

  • A few books you hope to read soon? Magical Melons, or Caddie Woodlawn's Family by Carol Ryrie Brink. I've wanted to read it for probably about ten years, and I finally moved into a county where I'll at long last have access to it. I also want to read The Book Thief, but I'm waiting on my friend's sister to finish it. I have to read her copy, because it's sharpie edited and I refuse to read an unedited copy. Also Who-ology. My new library system has it, and it's the "official miscellany" of Doctor Who. I want to go beyond the Amazon preview.

  • Favorite book of the year? My favorite I can't actually mention because it's pre-release and I haven't been told I can say I read it. My favorite on my Goodreads shelf is The King's Scrolls, though Half-Blood and Water Princess, Fire Prince are pretty close.

  • Summer or winter? Summer. I really like spring best, but I don't like being cold, so summer is better. Despite 95 degree temperatures.

  • One goal you have? To do my part to fix America. I need to build my part of the wall. And actually, that is something I'm going to explain in a post I need to be writing right now. It is of extreme importance.

Since I have other things I need to be writing, and these were good questions, I'm just going to repeat Shantelle's and leave an open invitation. If you want to do this tag, this is your opportunity. You can leave a link to your post in the comments. I'd love to see your answers!

  1. Your favorite dessert sounds really super duper amazingly yummy! 95 degree weather? I have 110 degree weather. Yet somehow summer is still my favorite season lol :D

    1. It is delicious. That's what we did for my last birthday instead of cake since I was eating gluten free. Yeah, its' been pretty steadily between 80 and 95 degrees, though we've had some rain lately to cool us down. I live in GA. Where do you live? It sounds pretty hot.

    2. I live in California. It is hot and yesterday it was really humid. We finally got a little rain in the last few days.

  2. Wahoo! So much fun! I'm so glad you could do it! :)

    I totally get what you mean about not liking to be cold! That's me too! Aww, Kristoff is such a sweet and fun guy, isn't he? I really, really liked his character! ^_^ Fairytale and fantasy ... yep!! :D

    Anyway, was so fun reading your post ... even if I was a little late commenting!

    Blessings! :)

    1. Glad you enjoyed it!

      It's no fun to be cold. And yes, Kristoff is so sweet and fun. I was way more excited when he would come onstage during shows at Disney World than Elsa or Anna. :) He's pretty awesome.


Share your thoughts! I love getting comments. Please keep them clean and relevant to the post. Thank you!
