Kreative Blogger Award

A big thank-you to Vivi @ Vivaciously, Vivian for my first-ever blog award! After much deliberation and consideration, I’m passing on this award to the following Kreativ Blogs:

1. Thank & link back to the person who gave you the award.
2. Answer the five form questions below.
3. Share five random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 7 other blogs for the Kreativ Blogger Award.

Question Time!
1. Favourite Song? Currently, it’s “Hero” by Abandon but it changes with my mood.
2.  Favourite Dessert? Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream!
3. What ticks you off? First chapters that don’t grab my attention ­čśŤ
4. Biggest Fear? The zombie apocalypse! Lol but I do have an irrational fear of anything dead, such as roadkill, so a zombie invasion would be pretty bad… :X
5. Everyday Attitude? If you want good things to happen to you, make them happen yourself, and be the change that you want to see.
5 Random Facts About Annie
1. My favorite supernatural creatures are faeries, although recently, I’ve also been fascinated with angels and want to go on a mermaid stint too :). 

2. I can say hello in 23 languages :). But I actually only speak three (English, Mandarin, Spanish) and am working on a fourth, Greek. 

3. I pretend to be Hawaiian whenever possible :D. Hawaii is my favorite place in the world and I’ve wanted to live there since I first visited when I was six.

4. I have a large collection of dead ballet shoes (pointe shoes don’t last very long – at 3 months/pair I’m considered lucky) and am in desperate need of decoration ideas. 

5. This may not be as outlandish to some of you as my other random facts, but I have books in all my closets and a kitchen cupboard. If I hadn’t gotten a Kindle last Christmas Plan B was to start clearing out space in a bathroom cupboard. Yes, my books are like trying to kill a hydra – you chop off a head and three grow back, I sell off a book and three more arrive on my doorstep… don’t laugh, some of you can relate better you’re admitting right now ­čśŤ

Thanks for reading my blog, everyone!


  1. Awwww, those were the cutest answers ever! Haha, I had a LOT of fun reading through <3 I know what you mean about "mmmeh" first chapters :/ To be honest, I'd be tempted to drop such a book, unless it's a mandatory read. I really like your outlook on everyday life too, it's a very smart and confident attitude to just go out there and find your happiness, I'm really envious of you for that! Heehee, I speak English and Mandarin as well, learning German, and a touch of Japanese XD

    Anyway, you're very welcome for the award, you deserved it ­čśë

    Vivian @ Vivaciously, Vivian



    1. Awww, you have the sweetest comments ever :). I'm glad it sounds like you had as much fun reading the post as I did writing it. For a while I tried toughing books out for at least a third before giving up, but with so many books and so little time, I'm starting to side towards you with dropping books that don't start with hooks! It's also so easy to do with Amazon's free samples of the first 1-3 chapters. That's so cool that you're learning German and Japanese.

      ­čÖé Thanks again!


  2. Hey, Annie!

    Thank you so much for giving me this award!! I'm truly honored! I'll get to it as soon as I can. I spent the first night of my little vacation (I'm off from my night job all week, yay!!)doing an article for my nonfiction blog. It took a while…

    So thanks again!! And you certainly deserve this award, as well! Your blog is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I love the combination of colors!!! And that header….WOW.

    1. You're very welcome, Maria! The name of your blog is one of my favorites – it's so poetic and picturesque. There's something so mysterious about dreams and books are kind of like having an awesome dream, only better! ­čÖé The header is beautiful and I like that it changes from time to time so there's always something new to look at. Thanks for all your comments on my blog ­čÖé I love when all the work I put into it is noticed :).



    2. Hi, again, Annie!

      You're very welcome, too! And thank you for your compliments about my blog!! Much appreciated!! I can't think of anything better to dream about than books, of course. And books themselves are a wonderful dream…sigh…ah, bliss!!

      Just wanted to let you know that I've finished the Kreativ Blogger post, so you can come over when you get a chance, to check out my answers.

      Thanks again for choosing my blog!! : )
