Real Neat Blog Award!

Good morning and happy Friday to all! I wish all of you a fantastic weekend ahead, and I’m sending out good vibes and happy thoughts! ♥

Today, I’m going to be doing the Real Neat Blog Award! I was nominated by the awesome blog: Melting Pots & Other Calamities. It’s a positively wonderful blog that chats about books, webtoons, and anime (in addition to other fun stuff!). Thank you so much for nominating me! I appreciate it very much!


This award is designed for people who have a ‘real neat blog’. Those participating should:

  • Put the award logo on your blog.
  • Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
  • Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
  • Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog, etc).
  • Ask your nominees 7 questions.

1. What is a post you made that you wish more people checked out?

I would have to say my review for the anime, Cowboy Bebop. I know it’s a bit of a lengthy review, but I poured my heart into it.

2. What is the most interesting thing you saw this week?

This may sound a bit boring. I have a string of lights hanging from my ceiling in my studio. It’s one of those net-lights that you’re supposed to toss on a bush during Christmas. Well, I looked up from working to find my cat dangling from those lights, upside down like a tiny monkey. It was fun and definitely interesting!

3. Is there a book you want to read, but can’t find the motivation to do so?

I really want to read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, who is my favourite author of all-time. I think the reason I’m having trouble with this book is because it’s his most-hyped/praised work. I have such a hard time reading hyped books. 😦

4. What was the best book you were assigned to read in school? The worst?

There are two books for me that were the best school-reads: Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto and After Dark by Haruki Murakami. These books changed my life as a reader. I don’t have a worst. If a book didn’t interest me in school (even if it was an assigned book), I simply didn’t read it. Oops!

5. What is a classic book/film you wouldn’t mind reading/watching?

I wouldn’t mind watching The Breakfast Club. I’ve heard it’s quite an iconic film. For a book, I wouldn’t mind reading Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas. I’ve heard he was a phenomenal author!

6. How has your blog changed since you started it?

Since starting my blog, I have discovered and passionately immersed myself into the world of diverse books, and #OwnVoices books, particularly where Asian literatures are concerned. This is such an important part of my blog. Thanks to these things, I’ve turned into a full-time blogger!

7. If you could visit one fictional world for a vacation, where would it be? It can be from a book, film, anime, TV show, web-comic, wherever. And to make this harder, don’t say Harry Potter!

(Is it sad that Harry Potter wasn’t even on my list?) I would love to visit the Chocobo Ranch from Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy XV. I fricking love Chocobos. My second answer (and almost my first) would have been the Nostromo prior to it landing on the mysterious planet. But then I would surely have died a bloody death; not much of a vacation!
