Behind the Awesome Blogger Award

The award was created by Maggie at Dreaming of Guatemala who stated – “This is an award for the absolutely wonderful writers all across the blogging world. They have beautiful blogs, are kind and lovely, and always find a way to add happiness and laughter to the lives of their readers. That is what truly defines an awesome blogger.”

Whitney’s Questions:

1: If you could only choose one genre to read for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Oh man, I guess I would say contemporary. I really enjoy those stories the most I think, that or Historical fiction, so that I get a bit of both worlds (fiction and non fiction).

2: What is the longest series you have ever read?

Geez. I want to say Harry Potter, but now that I am thinking about it, I did read quite a bit of the Gossip Girl series (which is at least a dozen books) as well as the entirety of the Mary-Kate and Ashley Adventures series and their Two of a Kind series, and those were both forever long as well.

I don’t know if you could tell that I don’t read a whole lot of series books, but I don’t, so this is always a hard one for me.

3: Have you ever met any authors in person? If so, who?

I have! I went to Book Expo last year for my library and I met quite a few authors, some of which I cannot remember off the top of my head, but I can remember Mo Willems, Nathan Hale, and Alice Hoffman (whom I met at my library at a separate event).


I have tickets to meet both Marie Lu and Tomi Adeyemi at Book Con this year (June 2) and I am sure I will get a few signatures/attend some meet and greets at Book Expo this year as well (June 1).

4: What color dominates your bookshelves?

Good question! I feel like I have a really nice smattering of different colors at the moment. I guess more warm-ish colors? What do you think?


5: Do you have any genre that you do not like/would never read?

Never say never. Though, I am not huge on Science Fiction or Fantasy,  I won’t refuse to pick any of those up. I do prefer historical fiction and contemporary (and lately thriller/suspense) typically though.

  3. Why did you decide to start blogging?
  4. We all have literary passports, where is yours stamped the most?
  5. I saw this on another person’s post and obviously had to include it in mine:  What’s your Harry Potter name? Use this generator to find out! (FYI- mine is Susan Dippet)
  6. What are some of your guilty pleasures? Whether they are book related or not.
  7. What is something that you love about your blog?

      1. I usually buy a couple for my boys every year. They’re now at the stage where they’ll read them on their own. Before them, I used to buy for my nieces and nephews too… I even got some back from the older ones for my boys. Lol.

  1. Thanks for the nod. You’re blog is for sure one of my faves! And, holy crap, your book shelf is so neat and tidy. Mine is overstuffed, books lying on their sides on top of the ones standing up, in front of the ones standing up. It’s a shameful sight…

    1. Fun fact: that is just ONE of the bookshelves I have. And the only nice one to be honest, hence the photo.

      I appreciate the kind words. You always make me laugh and I genuinely enjoy and look forward to your posts. 🙂
