The Sunshine Blogger Award || #3 ðŸŒ™

🌙 Hi guys!! I hope you’re having a beautiful and wonderful day, full of incredible readings. 💕 As I told you, I’m trying to catch up with my tags and awards, so that’s what I’m doing today. I’ve been nominated 5 months ago, kind of, for the incredible Cait || GoodeyReads ||🌹 I’m super grateful for the nomination and I’m very sorry that it took me so long to do it, but better late than never, right? 😅. I highly recommend that you check Cait’s blog, she and her content are great, so you can’t miss it!. As always, I hope that we can chat a little about each question, I would like you to know your own answer in the comments and tell me what you think about my answers and about how my mind works, I think it’s always interesting and fun to talk about bookish and not-bookish things with you. 🥰 

Before I started, I wanted to share with you my little frustration of the week, I know you’ll probably tell me that it’s not a big deal, but I wanted to read at least my 2 ARCs this week to bring you my reviews, since both were released the same day, but things are a little crazy in my life right now and I couldn’t do it. ☁️ We have discovered that my mother will have to go through surgery, thanks to God and the universe it’s nothing serious, but as it will be the first time she went through this type of intervention I’ve been there for her and taking care of everything so that she can be calm and not worry about anything else, that’s why I’ve neglected my readings a little, I guess my mind has been elsewhere. I don’t tell you this to victimize myself, I just really wanted to bring you the content in time and I couldn’t, so I wanted to let you know why, and I also want you to know that it will be arriving very soon. ☁️  I’m currently reading The Grace Year by Kim Liggett and spoilers alert… I’M LOVING IT. So stay tuned for my review very soon. I LOVE YOU and I always appreciate your support, I swear I feel you very close despite the distances ❤️ 

Well, I don’t want to make this any longer than it is, so without further ado, let’s start and I hope you really enjoy the post and I wish you have the most beautiful weekend. 🌙

  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

 🌙 || What was the last book you raved about? || 🌙 

Right now I’m raving about The Grace Year with all the members of my family, but I still can’t tell you much because I have a little left to finish it, but I’m loving it, is all I wanted right now. But I could also say that the last book that I’ve raved about has been Heartstopper by Alice Osceman, LOVED that graphic novel beyond words, is too adorable, I highly recommend you checked out if you haven’t yet.

 🌙 || What is your least favorite trope? || 🌙 

I’m not that kind of person who is very bothered by tropes, I must confess that many who usually annoys most, aren’t really an impediment to my enjoyment, so I think I have just one that really bothers me and that’s “insta-love”, maybe because I’ve already grown a little or something, but although I enjoy romances a lot and I love a little bit of cheesy stuff in my books, I can’t stand the “insta-love” factor, that prevents me from connecting with the characters as a couple, I LOVE slow-burn romances, I’m all for them.

 🌙 || What do you like to do for fun (besides reading)? || 🌙 

Right now I’m quite involved with my spiritual side, I’ve been meditating and trying to have healthier habits, so I guess that’s something fun for me lol. Besides that, I LOVE to dance, I always say it and I’ve been walking and running a lot, other things that really make me happy. Then I could say that being with my friends and family makes me really happy as well, so I guess that counts too ❤️ 

 🌙 || What kind of books are you drawn to during summer? || 🌙 

This year, in general, I haven’t been paying much attention to the seasons and I’ve been reading a bit of everything, but in general, if I would have to choose something I would say that contemporary and romance books are perfect for summer ☀️

 🌙 || Who is a bookish couple that you just don’t like? || 🌙 

Intuitively I would go to my simple option and say that Mal and Alina, but to not always repeat the same answer, this time I’ll go for Elian and Lira from To Kill A Kingdom, I don’t think there’s a real connection between them and I didn’t feel the chemistry that the book tries to sell at all, so I don’t know, it’s not my kind of love story, it’s very forced

 🌙 || What is your favorite food? || 🌙 

Anything with potatoes or made of potatoes, I’ll love it, I love pasta too & risotto. Although I LOVE pizza, because who doesn’t, right? Honestly speaking about food, I’m not delicate at all, I LOVE everything from vegetables to meats, so it’s very difficult to choose 😅

 🌙 || What is one of your blogging goals for 2019? || 🌙 

This year I’ve been trying to read more outside of my comfort zone and also to get more involved in the community, leaving my shyness aside and I think I’ve done a good job, I’m quite proud of myself  💕

    SOO TRUE ABOUT THAT ‘insta love’ I DONT LIKE IT AT ALL!! You are absolutely right, it doesn’t give us enough time to fully understand their hearts and connect with them! It feels forced in a way! 😕😕

  3. Sofii, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she recovers soon.

    Keep complaining about Mal and Alina! There can never be enough shade!

    I just watched a movie with the worst case of insta-love. It truly is the worst trope!

    Potatoes are DELICIOUS. I haven’t found a vegan potato recipe yet – I love cheesy potatoes and creamy potatoes WAY TOO MUCH. Also, pizza. Pizza forever.

    I never would have known you were shy! You’re always so friendly!

    • Thank you SO much, Lauren! Your words mean a lot to me, you’re an angel 🥰

      OMG, lol, you’re the best !! I know I shouldn’t limit myself when is about hating that relationship 😂

      It’s terrible, I swear, I also don’t know why they insist on making every story insta-love when slow-burn romance is so much better, anticipation is the key 😍

      Oh, honey, YES, I used to be very shy, I think I’ve made a lot of progress in that aspect though, it has always been easier for me to meet people in person, but doing it this way, online, is so new and this year I’ve discovered that encourage me to talk more and built bonds, have made me very happy, it has been a great experience ❤️

      I hope you’re having an INCREDIBLE month 😊

  4. I’m so sorry about your mum! I hope everything goes well and she’s alright soon!

    Oh, I hate insta-love so much! Slow burns are always superior!! Of course, it’s neat to have some sparkles and maybe even insta-attraction every now and then but insta-love should burn in book hell where it belongs.

    And thank you so much for nominating me, Sofi! ❤

  6. Insta-love is seriously one of the worst tropes out there. I love dancing as well! 😀 It’s always sooo much fun! I have never liked Mal and Alina either, thought I think that has more to do with the fact that I hated Mal as a character. Alina deserved sooo much more than him! Thank you for nominating me! ❤

    • I know, right? We need more slow-burn romances. SAME!! I hate Mal but I adore Alina, she grows so much as the story progresses she deserves much more, I’m so glad that we think alike ❤️
      You’re welcome, honey! I can’t wait to know your answers to my questions 🥰

  7. Firstly, congrats!!! So well deserved ❤ . I'm also not a fan of the insta-love trope. I like that slow burn and development with relationships, ya know? I want to start meditating, especially since I've heard it's great for anxiety. I just HAVE to DO it lol!

    Great post, love.

    • Thank you, my beautiful angel!❤️ OMG, yes! we need more slow-burn romances in our lives 😍
      I highly recommend that you try meditation, there are some very good ones on youtube that are guided and you can start there, it’s a powerful journey, at the beginning anxiety becomes difficult, you know how it is, but after several days of meditation you can feel that your mental state begins to change and I’ve been personally, much more relaxed 😊
      Thanks, again, honey, I hope you are having a wonderful and spooky month 🥰

      • RIGHT?! It’s just SO much better. I find the connection so much more in-tense and believable ❤

        I think that's where I struggle. I find meditation MAKES me tense, but I've heard this is pretty common. So I REALLY need to just stick with it ha-ha!

        You have a lovely and spooky month too, darlin'!

    • Oh, honey!! thank you SO SO SO much I really appreciate your words with all my heart and soul ❤️❤️
      I’m so glad you liked it! Occasionally, having these kinds of questions to answer is so much fun, it feels good to just sit down and chat a little, you know? lol.
