The beautiful blogger award!

beautifulbloggerawardI’d like to give big thanks to Alicia @ Caffeine and BooksΒ for this nomination! You’re awesome! Check out her blog if you haven’t done it yet :D.

Rules

  1. Link to the blogger who nominated you.
  2. List seven random facts about you.
  3. Nominate seven creative, beautiful bloggers, and notify them.

7 Facts about me

  1. I love video games. In my favorites I currently have: Witcher series, Assassin’s Creed, Skyrim, Bastion, Tera and many others πŸ˜‰
  2. I like painting my nails in rainbow colors πŸ˜› Yes I do have enough nail polish colors. More than enough actually. I could probably paint all my fingernails and toenails with different polish.
  3. I have a cat called Acrobat, but me and my mom rarely call him by his given name. It’s not like he’d actually react to it anyway, he’s a cat πŸ˜› he does what he pleases.
  4. I’m a total houseplant killer. Only this year I found out I can keep some types of orchids alive (I hope) and I’m totally in love with them.
  5. I was on student’s exchange in Horsens, Danmark for half year and the only word I learned was “tak” (thank you) because it sounds and looks just as polish word “tak” (yes). I did polish my English though :P.
  6. I prefer salty and spicy snacks over the sweet ones.
  7. I learned English mostly through watching movies and playing games instead of studying in High School especially since I had more hours of Russian throughout the school. Now I barely remember any Russian, but I can still read the letters ;).

Reading challenges

I thought it’s about time that I share my Goodreads challenges with you. I’ve got two ongoing plus the “Read xxx books” but I don’t count this one really as it includes everything I mark on GR as Read throughout the year (short stories, BBC dramatizations, manga, etc).

In the two challenges, I’m going to share with you I only use the unabridged novels I read or listened to or manga series if I read at least 2-3 volumes of them.

challenge-accepted

Both of those are the A-Z type. Theoretically you can use some random letters instead of q, x, y and z ones as English language doesn’t seem to have too many words starting with those and even less that were used to start book titles, but I only use this excuse at the end of the year when it seems I won’t make it :P.

I put English titles in square brackets just in case. Each has a link to Goodreads. Continue reading “Reading challenges”
