  • Nominate (at least) 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.


The 11 questions I was given:

  1. What/who inspired your blog? I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time but didn’t know what topic to choose, but then I thought I read and review books anyway so why not try it out on a blog.  My best friend has also helped me out, especially with proof reading some of my posts because I struggled with writing some of them.
  2. What’s your favorite place to read? I can read almost anywhere in my house but my favourite would have to be in my bedroom on/in bed.
  3. What’s your favorite time of the day to review the books you read? I usually plan to write my reviews during but most of the time I end up writing my thoughts down on paper at night.
  4. Coffee/Tea? Either I don’t mind
  5. Favorite indie bookstore in your town/city? Only have big bookshop chains near by. The closest one to my house is Waterstones.
  6. Best bookstore you’ve visited?  Kinokuniya Book Store, Dubai Mall, Dubai.
  7. Hardcover/Paperback? I like hardcovers, but paperbacks are much easier to carry for me, as hardbacks can be very heavy for me to hold and carry sometimes.
  8. Favourite season(s)? Summer!!
  9. Most recent read? Hippie by Paulo Coelho
  10. A place you’d like to visit again: New York
  11. Most relaxing hour of the day: After dinner when I sit down down to watch my TV shows, with a book in hand too.
