    Liebster Award

    A long time ago a good blogger friend nominated me for this award.

    …Maybe. I think I am. Although I don’t post everything, I don’t have rules when to post what, so I think that’s pretty random. This Randomness Award is thanks to Jyoti, a sweet girl from India who blogs about her thoughts at https://jyoticorner.home.blog. Jyoti Questions: 1: Which is your favorite book and name it’s author.

    Okay, let’s do this!

    Lately, I’ve been feeling burned out and missing something important then I realized. I haven’t completed as many books as I want. I’m a bookworm and I can’t survive without books! It’s my nutrition! That’s why the last days I haven’t been as active as usual because I used almost all of my free time to read…

    2-N-1 award post

    I called this post “2-in-1” because I’m breaking boundaries here. I received two nominations for Sunshine Blogger Award at the end of the month (April 30) and they were just hours apart! My reaction was… and then it hit me how much work it will take to get these two post ready but after some breathing to…
