Blocsar Award

Okay so we got nominated for this AGES ago. But we’re here now. We’re totally here doing it.

Thank you so much to Catherine @ thisisoneforthebooks for nominating us! We’re totally shocked and honored.

This special award by Ultimatetravel is to nominate all the bloggers that have been working hard for our entertainment and fun. The categories are for the best Travellers, Writers, Poets, Artists, Beauticians, Photographers, People-who-help-others-through-their-experiences-in-life, and many more.

But, onto the questions!
Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.


When did you start blogging?

We started back in March of last year, so we recently celebrated our one-year blogiversary!

Just as Caidyn said, March of 2017. We created the blog in one afternoon and we’re still going strong a year later.

Why did you start blogging?

Because of Chantel. I’ve tried to blog numerous times but I never got into it. So I’d quit and delete the blog.

I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up a blog on my own, we had already started our two-person book club so working together and keeping each other in check.

What is your blog about?

I don’t even think we know.
It started as a book club thing (which, really, is only the two of us so is it really a club?) and then morphed into something insane. Especially with our bickering.

Primarily we talk about books, but we’ve also branched out to other things we like such as movies, tv shows, podcasts, and music. Mostly it’s just a place for us to rave about our favorite things.

What’s your favourite quotation?

Mine is from The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. I know I’ve posted it on here before, but I can’t remember what.

I like to imagine the world is one big machine. You know, machines never have any extra parts. They have the exact number and types of parts they need. So I figure if the entire world is a big machine, I have to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.

When Caidyn was a depressed teenager, that quote really spoke to him.

Mine is from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee which we both read last year.

“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.” 

It was definitely a favorite quote from a book I grew to love.

What’s your favourite holiday destination?

London. 100% London.

I don’t go on holidays.

Are you the type of person that meticulously researches a holiday trip or do you just go with the flow?

Depends! I prefer going with the flow and having a rough idea of things that I want to do/see, then check those off as I go through the trip. But, I want to meticulously plan things like cost, where I’m sleeping, and safety of where I am.

I would definitely plan out where I’m going to sleep and eat but other than that I would probably go with the flow. 

What means of travel do you enjoy the most?

Airplanes. Especially first class. Because you get free booze and comfy seats.

I really enjoy driving as long as there are frequent breaks for longer rides. 

What’s your favourite colour and why?

Blue! I like lighter shades, but I also like dark blues as well. Yellow used to be my favorite color, but we got a dog named Blue and I kind of latched onto that.

I couldn’t tell you, honestly. I really like navy blue, red, and purple. I’m not sure why but I usually latch onto those colors. 

What are your hobbies?

Reading, blogging, gramming, working, rewatching TV shows. Oh, and learning languages. I love that hobby.

Reading, watching tv and movies, listening to music, and writing. 

What’s your favourite type of music?

Alternative. So, think of twenty-one pilots (which aren’t my favorite), My Chemical Romance, Panic! at the Disco, etc. I also love rap, classical, and basically anything else.

I’m currently listening to Britney Spears greatest hits. No joke. I love a lot of music, but I’d say my favorite is most likely going to be 90’s pop music. Good times. 


Now, like usual, we’re not going to nominate people because we think everyone we follow or who follows this deserves it! If you want to do this, feel free to!!

The Brotherhood of the World Award

BHOTWA

So, we got awarded this in December. And it’s February. Oops. But, we’re close? Kind of? Just go with it and suck it up. We’re getting it done.

Like usual, it’s Emma from Thoughts of a Brown Eyed Girl who nominated us. Caidyn is the one who killed her because, apparently, he’s hilarious. And the way she phrased it made it seem like he killed both her and Chantel, but who knows. Last he checked, Chantel was alive.

But, a huge thanks to her! We always appreciate how she thinks of us for these things. It’s always sweet and they’re fun to fill out.

So, these are the rules for this thing:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the questions sent to you.
  • Nominate around ten bloggers. We probably won’t follow this one.
  • Create your set of questions for your nominees.
  • List the rules and display the Brotherhood of the World Award logo in your post.

Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.


1. Last book you read that lived up to the hype?

NONE OF THEM. But, seriously, IT and American Gods are the two I can think of. They both have tons of hype around them and I think they deserve it.

Caidyn and I are both jaded when it comes to hyped books, however, I read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid last month. Geez, what a fucking mouthful. I can’t even contain myself when talking about this book. I’ll just link to my review where I gush about my Cuban, bisexual goddess. 

Also, I think Caidyn is planning on reading it soon so don’t be surprised if he hates it. 

I don’t hate everything that you like.

2. First thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “love”?

Family. Is that weird? Maybe. But when I hear love, I think of family since anyone I love is automatically in my family.

This isn’t a loaded question at all. Anyone else feel like they are being interrogated? For me, the first thing that comes to my mind is the people that surround me and support me. That doesn’t mean those are the only people I love, just the first thing that comes to mind. 

Also, Watson.

But Watson wants to kill you.

Maybe. 

3. A book that you think deserves a better movie/TV adaptation?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. That movie sucks ass. It left out so many important things that carry into the next movie and then it was the worst.

Goblet of Fire was so much worse. THE FUCKING HAIR. Ugh. I can’t get into it. Yeah, this hard for me because I don’t really have any issues with adaptations. I guess if I had to pick one it would be A Monster Calls because I was really disappointed with the movie. It didn’t even have close to the same impact despite having Felicity Jones in it. 

THEIR HAIR WAS GLORIOUS AND AWKWARD IN THAT MOVIE.

Thank you for agreeing, Harry.

 

Nope timon
Harry looks a bit unsure. Maybe he’s being coerced. Well, Cedric/Edward is there soooo…

Feel free to let us know in the comments who’s right and who is clearly wrong. 

She’s wrong.

4. Favorite holiday?

Halloween!!

Thanksgiving. Because food. 

5. Favorite badass male protagonist?

Dumbledore.

He totally counts.

Why it gotta be a dude? Is it bad that I can’t think of anyone other than Evelyn Hugo? Okay, let me think…Thomas Lynch. There, done. 

Because poor men feeling bad about not being included.

That’s all I have to say about that.
