The Real Neat Blog Award Number Two

Hello beautiful people!

Awe! Thank you so much Nen and Jen for nominating me! These two lovely humans are ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE BEINGS!!! Seriously, go visit their blog. They’re funny, caring, full of information and just great individuals.

And sorry … again … for you tagged me in this sometime November of 2019 … I LOST TRACK OF TIME! I hope you still end up liking the answers!

The Creator & the Rules

The original creator of this tag is (I think … Nen and Jen did some research) Dear Kitty, Some Blog.

↠ Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
↠ Answer the questions of the one who nominated you.
↠ Nominate some bloggers.
↠ Ask them seven questions.


One. What name have you always wanted to have, other than your own?

LYRA! Oh yes … that was an easy one ha-ha! Ever since I read Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, I’ve wanted this name. Not only is it the name of a constellation, but it’s beautiful sounding!


Two. What is your favourite type of character?

Ummmm … I don’t know what this means ha-ha! I’m going to suppose like trait wise? At any rate, I love the comical relief characters … because I love to laugh! But I also have a soft spot for the dreamers, the ones more attune with their feelings and emotions. I relate to those types of characters a lot, so it’s really nice to feel that connection.


Three. What holiday do you look forward to the most every year?

CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh … from the lights to the decor to the snow, I just love it all! I find the season very hopeful feeling, which is just a great way to feel! Halloween is probably my second favourite, especially since autumn is my favourite season … but I do love Christmas … OH! And New Years, if that counts!


Four. What type of blog post do you enjoy writing the most?

When I have the time, Book Reviews. I like being able to get my thoughts down and seeing my overall thoughts on something I’ve read. But recently, I’ve really enjoyed Down the TBR Hole posts … especially because you lot tend to have some HILARIOUS comments on what I keep and remove! I really love conversations in the blog community, so that always makes me happy (even when you get upset after I removed a book or two … ha-ha)!


Five. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, which would it be?

Nen … Jen … WHY DO YOU HAVE TO ASK THIS KIND OF QUESTION?! THIS IS A STRUGGLE!

Okay, okay … I don’t want to be a broken record so I’m going to switch it up! If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka has been my number one book to rave about in 2019 … so I’m picking this one. Cameron (the main character) is FLIPPIN’ HILARIOUS! I really would love to have more books about her.


Six. If you could interview any author, who would you choose?

Wilder Poetry, Kelley Armstrong, Robert Munsch … and no, I refuse to pick only one!

Wilder Poetry, a recent discovery, has become one of my all-time favourite poets! I would love to know how they come up with the words and details!

Kelley Armstrong is not only an amazing author … she’s a CANADIAN amazing author! Her books are what got me into reading beyond Harry Potter, so interviewing her would be … I don’t even have words.

If I ever have children of my own, I will read them Robert Munsch’s books. They’re a HUGE part of my childhood, making my reading time full of laughs and fun!


Seven. The cutest animal in the world is….?

HOW CAN ONE NOT LOVE OTTERS?! THEY HOLD HANDS!!! AND WASH THEIR CUTE LITTLE FACES! AND ARE LITERALLY WATER PUPPIES! Yes … I’m completely and utterly obsessed with otters.


My Questions

Sorry folks, I’m SUPER busy and too lazy to be creative … so I’m stealing Nen and Jen’s questions!

  1. You’re such a gem Jenna!
    Lyra is such a cute name. I could easily see the name being used for a strong fantasy heroine! Also, Christmas is Nen and my favourite time of the year. We may or may not love to go overboard on all of the decorations and food 😛 I haven’t heard of Kelley Armstrong but I’m going to check them out. Anything that convinces you to read after HP is a good thing! Aww bless, Otters are super adorable! Penguins have the same appeal for me. They’re just so cute! Thanks for doing the post, you deserved the award!
    Jen 🙂
