  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Credit the creator (Maggie @Dreaming of Guatemala).
  • Tag this post with #AwesomeBloggerAward.
  • Answer all the questions given to you.
  • Nominate some people.
  • Write questions for them to answer.


  1. What are your favorite books of 2020 so far?
    I am currently reading “When She Was Good” by Michael Robotham. It is a second part of the trilogy (I think it is meant to be three of them, anyway). I am quite enjoying it. Otherwise, I will shamelessly plug two of my fellow bloggers and their books. Golden Review: ‘The Eclectic’ by Colin Reynolds and Golden Review: ‘The Exile’ by Shiloh Carozza.
  2. Where do you write your blog?
    I am not sure what this one means. Some people write in Word and then copy and paste onto WordPress. I write directly in WP. However, I have been having trouble with Grammarly working with the new editor (newer is not always better, ey?) so, sometimes I write in Grammarly and copy in here.
    If you are asking where I am located – USA. My bedroom, my living room, or my office.
  3. Which type of blog post do you like reading the most?
    My interests vary widely. I like thought-provoking pieces, but I also enjoy those that make me laugh (and feel all sorts of other emotions).
  4. Which type of blog post do you like writing the most?
    Thought-provoking ones. Hopefully. I love my NROP and my CW equally.
  5. What book format do you like the most? (e.g. physical book, eBook, audiobook?)
    Well, this was probably the easiest of them all – physical book. Everyone knows that.
  6. If you could travel to one place in the world, where would you travel to?
    Somewhere in South America.
  7. Favorite dessert?
    Chocolate. It encompasses such a wide variety. Cake, pralines, ice cream. I will have it ALL!
  8. If you are stranded on an island, and you can choose to keep either your cellphone or a lifetime supply of books, which would you choose? (Clarification: Your phone has internet and cell reception but you cannot use it to get yourself off the island.)
    This one is cruel. I want to say books. Of course. But, the phone has music and my blog. I could just do so much more with it. Reading would get boring at some point. Yes, I know, blasphemy. How do I charge my phone again?
  9. Which book do you remember most vividly?
    The one I am currently reading? I forget them pretty soon after I finish reading. No memory left.
  10. Would you rather eat good food or wear fashionable clothing?
    Good food. Yum!




  1. Aside from reading/writing, what do you like to do in your spare time?
  2. What was the biggest challenge you faced this year?
  3. What do you look forward to in 2021?
  4. How do you normally spend Christmas? Will it be the same or different this year?
  5. What is your favorite feeling?

Add yours

    1. I’m not sure why you didn’t get a pingback, either… WP can be strange sometimes.

      I just wanted to show some appreciation. It’s been a pleasure knowing you all this time and gaining some insights to all sorts of different things.

  1. I rather enjoy your award posts; though I confess, their length often gets them put off for a time. Hence my surprise when I finally get to it and find my own name… Like Ruth, I didn’t receive a pingback. Though perhaps that’s really a devilish plot on your part to keep us on our toes? Well anyway, thank you very much for the tag. 😊 Though, may I ask… Why are your questions/answers put under the “Rules” heading on page 5? It’s very strange to see “Rules: Where do UFOs come from?”

    1. When it comes to awards, some people visit the nominee’s blog and announce it. I never did it, because I don’t want to push (some people don’t do them), and because I like to keep you all on your toes. However, I have always done the pingbacks so there is some sort of FYI. I have no idea why it didn’t work this time…

      As far as the length is concerned, that’s why I do pages – so you can read one page at a time and know exactly where you left off.

      Thank you for pointing out the rules snaffu. You have earned your editor’s wage this week.

      1. Well, I have been having some WordPress issues lately, so… We’ll just blame it on them. 😉

        Read bit by bit, as time allows? Goldie… That would be smart. Ridiculous!

        I’ve earned my wage, eh? Excellent. I expect my payment in chocolates.

          1. Ah, wonderful! Although, I do wonder why people don’t make chocolates and the like in the shape of things where a beheading would be more desirous. Like… vampires, maybe? Because edibles in the form of, well, anything with a head, are going to get beheaded, it’s just a fact of life. And we make bunnies, and Santas, and poor, innocent, nondescript sort of people. Now what does that say about us?

            Okay… I know what it says about me. 😅

  2. I have finally responded to your tag 😉 Go check my post out.

    I thought it was “Love after Love” Cher sang about! Am I wrong?

    If things can get worse, chances are they will – Unfortunately true

    I love your list of favorite feelings!
