Versatile Blogger Award {Oxford themed!] | 5

Look familiar? I’m back with another Versatile Blogger Award! Thanks so much to Dani for nominating me! Last time I gave this award a summer theme, but this time the theme is extra special: Oxford! As you read this, I will be flying across the pond to Oxford, England to visit some friends at Mansfield College, where I spent my junior year studying abroad. I’m beyond excited to go over again and see so many familiar people and places—and I’m excited to share my adventures when I get back! But for now, here are seven Oxford themed fun facts about me.

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Leave a link to their blog.
  3. Tell us 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers/bloggers you’ve discovered recently or follow regularly.

1. In a shocking un-Holly-like move that bewildered all of my friends and family back home, I was the goalkeeper for the Mansfield-Merton football team. I wasn’t very good and really was only able to play because they desperately needed a body in goal, but I still played. I loved the feeling of being on a team—and the lemonade we shared after games! I’ll always be grateful that I randomly decided to go to a football taster session with my friend one afternoon early on in the first term.

2. Although I love so many cafes in Oxford, the one that really stole my heart was George Street Social. (Which I wrote about in a post here.) Not only is it a lovely place to read and write during the day, but it also doubles as a fun pub-like setting in the evenings. One of my friends and I went there a few times to have a drink and play one of the old board games they had piled on a shelf upstairs. There’s this one table on your right when you first walk in that was my absolute favorite—the chairs were comfortable and it was next to a wide window with a perfect view of the bustling street. Would definitely recommend stopping by if you’re ever in the area!

3. Almost every day my friends and I would take a 3pm essay break and walk through Uni Parks to a little farm with the most beautiful group of horses. It was definitely someone’s field—their house was right beside it—but if they ever had any qualms about a bunch of American girls standing by their fence gazing out at their horses, they never said anything. We named the horses based on their colorings and even got to pet them a few times. It was such a serene scene, one that I looked forward to every afternoon. Even though Oxford is a city (albeit a small one), I was delighted to discover that there were still plenty of green spots to be enjoyed.

4. As a Visiting Student, I wasn’t required to attend any lectures or other meetings apart from my weekly tutorials; however, I found myself attending a handful of them each week anyways, at least throughout the first two terms. I initially started going to them because I genuinely enjoy listening to lectures—ones about literature, at least. Yet I kept going to them for very different reasons: I quickly realized that they were a great way to gain a bit of context about what I was reading and writing about this week without having to do all the research on my own. Lectures provided me with a great starting point from which I then branched off into what I was specifically interested in. Academics aside, lectures also provided me a way to interact with English lit students from different colleges. Often I would end up sitting next to the same person a few lectures in a row, and eventually we would strike up a conversation. I even met some other American Visiting Students that way, which made me feel more at home.

5. It seemed as though everyone at Oxford was obsessed with ABBA—specifically the songs from Mamma Mia.Now, don’t get me wrong, I love me some ABBA. But this seemed like a deeply entrenched knowledge of ABBA. At every Mansfield bop there would be a half hour DJ set of solely ABBA, and no matter what direction you looked everyone was singing. And I mean everyone—even that guy on the men’s football team that I never pictured singing anything was belting out the lyrics and dancing like his life depended on it. While I fully supported everyone’s obsession with ABBA, it did initially take me by surprise.

6. I was the Visiting Student Representative in the Mansfield JCR during my year at Oxford, which was as fascinating as it was fun. Having spent two years as a Class Senator in student government at Wheaton, I was really interested to see what student government at Oxford would be like. The answer: much, much more supportive and engaged (at least at Mansfield) and much, much more efficient than at Wheaton. It was such a breath of fresh air to see agenda items actually being ticked off and funding be allocated to things that the student body was actually passionate about.

7. Oxford taught me how to balance work and play. Although my experience was obviously different from a matriculated Oxford student, I nevertheless found myself simultaneously working harder and having more fun than ever before. Part of this is due to the nature of the tutorial system that Oxford uses—since I had to write about 1.5 essays a week for three terms, I could budget my time so that I only had to work from about 9am to 5pm every day and the rest of the time I was free to explore the city and spend time with friends. It’s more difficult for me to strike that balance here, but even so I felt like I did a much better job after Oxford than before.

YOU! Because I just did this award last week as well, I’m not going to go through and nominate anyone specifically. But if you had a hankering to share seven fun facts about yourself, please do!

My year at Oxford shaped me in so many ways, some of which I’ve only realized after being back for months. Do you have a place that’s shaped you in a similarly profound way? What do you think of my fun Oxford facts? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

Sunshine Blogger Award | 6

Hello, hello! It’s time for yet another award (this seems to be a recurring Wednesday theme recently…). Thanks so much to Emma @ Emma Reads for nominating me!! Emma is one of the sweetest bookworms ever so definitely check out her blog!

1. Kiss, marry, kill: The main characters of the last three fiction books you read.

I’m writing this post well in advance of when it’s going to be posted, so at the moment my options are Klaus Baudelaire from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket, Thor from Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, and Jean Valjean from Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. This is SO difficult, but I think I would kiss Klaus, marry Jean Valjean, and kill Thor? I don’t want anything bad to happen to any of them, though!

2. Would you rather be an elegant princess/prince type character in a fairytale, or a witchy badass villain?

I know this is stereotypical, but I would rather be an elegant princess rather than a witchy villain. The dress! The romance! The singing! (I’m thinking of Tangled here, people!)

3. You fall into a pit of acid or get bit by an exotic spider or into a verbal altercation with a wizard, and you’re given the power to pull things out of books. Which book are you reaching into first???

WHOA these questions are escalating quickly! The image of a “verbal altercation with a wizard” is hilarious, so let’s go with that scenario. I would probably try to pull out a pie and then throw it in their face because that’s funny and delicious yet simultaneously passive aggressive.

4. You’re being sent to a desert island and you can only bring one book, and it has to be one you haven’t read yet. What book are you bringing?

THIS QUESTION. It’s so difficult to choose from books you haven’t read yet because you have no idea whether or not you will actually enjoy it… but I guess I would choose A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin because then it would force me to finally read start this series.

5. Link your favorite blog post of yours!

No specific favorite post comes to mind; however, I do really enjoy writing the Classic Couple series in which I pair classic literature with contemporary counterparts. More posts in this series coming your way!

6. Which Hogwarts house would you most want to be in, and which do you want to be in least?

I would want to be in Gryffindor the most because I really admire bravery and loyalty, and I would want to be in Slytherin the least because its traits are the least important to me. (For reference, I generally consider myself a Ravenclaw/Hufflepuff).

7. Would you rather have a pet unicorn or grow a mermaid’s tail when you touch water?

MERMAID’S TAIL. FOREVER AND ALWAYS.

8. The last book you gave 5 stars and the last book you gave 1 star?

I actually stopped rating books on my blog and Goodreads a while ago. Click here to read my post explaining my reasoning. 

9. Who’s a popular author you’re just…not that into?

My go-to answer to this is usually Jenny Han. After not being very impressed with the trilogy starting with The Summer I Turned Pretty I’m just never in the mood to try any of her other books.

10. Show you’re currently watching, or last one you watched?

This past term I started watching the first few episodes of Jane the Virgin and it is WILD. I definitely want to continue watching it when I have the time!

11. Picture this: You’re at the altar, about to say “I do” to Cornelius (or Cornelia) Wainwright III, a disgraced businessperson who is only marrying you for your chocolate factory fortune. You dramatically say “I can’t do this” – which fictional character or celebrity do you confess your love to instead?

WOW, what a question! To be honest, I would probably confess my love to Aragorn from Lord of the Rings.

I’m going to pass along Emma’s questions because they were so much fun to answer.

Thanks again to Emma for nominating me and providing the most hilarious, thought-provoking, creative questions for me to answer! ❤

What are your answers to these questions? What do you think of mine? Let me know in the comments section below!

Blogger Recognition Award | 3

It’s always a delight to wake up and learn that someone has nominated you for an award, especially one as fun as the Blogger Recognition Award. Thanks so much to the lovely Lili @ Lili’s Blissful Pages for nominating me!! Definitely check out her blog ❤

  • Generate a post about the award.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a brief story about how your blog began.
  • Provide two pieces of advice to newbie bloggers.
  • Select 15 blogs to nominate.
  • Comment on each nominee’s blog and provide a link to the post that you created about the award.

I first started blogging back in eighth grade (five years ago!) with a blog hosted by Blogger. It was originally called Me Gusta Leer, because at the time (as I am still currently) I was really into learning Spanish. I basically only posted book reviews and the occasional random discussion post about Spanish or bookish topics, but it was very simple.

Later I wanted to rename my blog, so I came up with the title Nut Free Nerd. I liked its alliteration and the way it encompasses something more about me personally– the fact that I’m allergic to nuts. My original blog titled Nut Free Nerd still exists on the internet, and you can click here if you’d like to check it out. (It’s a tad embarrassing– oh, that awful design!)

nutfreeavatarOn December 9, 2012, I decided to start a new blog with a different blogging platform. I started from scratch on WordPress, and thus, Nut Free Nerd as it exists today was born! As I began to follow more and more blogs, I gradually increased the amount I post as well as the quality of my content. The WordPress platform helped me connect with other book bloggers and made me realize just how wonderful the book blogging community is! My talented brother created the logo I use today (thanks!), and I have now fully embraced my inner book blogger.

Instead of giving the usual general advice of blogging for yourself and not someone else’s expectations, not worrying about stats, and consistently creating original content, I’m going to give some very specific advice that I’ve found really useful:

Advice #1: Schedule posts in advance when possible. Personally, I would not be able to posts regularly whatsoever without scheduling a plethora of posts in advance. This is especially true during term time when I have little extra time to plan and write posts, particularly longer discussion ones. Scheduling posts in advance frees you up to be more creative with the time you do have in your busy schedule.

My planner for 2018.

Advice #2: Keep a blog calendar. For years I have written down my blogging schedule in my planner and it is so useful for staying organized, keeping track of what posts still need to be written and/or scheduled, and ideas for future posts down the road. I love being able to clearly visualize what I’ve already completed and what I still need to finish.

Thanks again to Lili for nominating me!

Mystery Blogger Award | 3

Start warming up your super-sleuth abilities because it’s time for another Mystery Blogger Award. Thanks so much to Erin @ Her Big Mouth Book Blog for nominating me!!

  • Thank whoever nominated you and link to their blog
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  • Nominate roughly 10 – 20 people for this award
  • Ask your nominees five questions

  1. When I was in high school I used to exclusively wear argyle patterned socks.
  2. My two favorite TV shows are The Office and Lost (I can’t possibly choose between them).
  3. I have three piercings in each ear.

  1. Which book got you interested in reading? I honestly can’t remember the first book that got me into reading. I was lucky that my parents read a lot to me when I was younger, so I don’t clearly remember most of the books that were read to me then. I do remember loving If You Give A Pig A Pancake by Laura Numeroff, mostly because I thought the pig was adorable and wanted one for a friend.
  2. What’s your biggest bookish pet peeve? Love triangles, especially when they’re used as the only thing driving the plot forward. I mean, how often do love triangles really happen in actuality? Why are they used so often in fiction? Isn’t there something more interesting to write about?
  3. What’s your greatest strength as a reader? Greatest weakness? I think my greatest strength is that I like a variety of genres. My greatest weakness is probably that I don’t often remember the details of books once I finish them, so whenever I read for my courses I have to take copious notes for reference later on.
  4. What author would you like to interview and why? Definitely William Faulkner because I would love to know his motivations for writing the kinds of characters and stories that he did. What did he really think about race? Gender? Class? And how did he develop an entire fictional county over numerous novels and short stories?
  5. What are your favorite kind of blog posts to write? I really enjoy writing discussion posts, especially rambling ones. It’s nice to be able to get down my thoughts on paper (or my laptop screen) and then hear what other people have to say if they write comments.

  1. If you could create any crayon color, what would it be?
  2. What’s the last song you listened to?
  3. Do you prefer driving or being the passenger of a car?
  4. What book are you most looking forward to reading next?
  5. What’s the weather like right now where you live?

Thanks again to Erin for nominating me!

  • Ask them 3 questions.

Q1: What book do you want to read that has been on your TBR List forever? 

I talk about this a lot, but it needs to be said so that I’m actually motivated to read it. A Game of Thrones has been on my TBR list for FAR TOO LONG, people!

Q2: What genre do you usually stray away from and why?

Lately I’ve strayed away from books that are just romance, mostly because those plots tend to be quite predictable and straightforward. I do enjoy one every now and then, though!

Q3: If you could have dinner with three authors, who would they be? 

William Faulkner, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Willa Cather. Not only have these authors written some of my favorite books, but they’re also fascinating people in general. I can only imagine the conversations we would have!

Who is the one person that is the sunshine in your life?

Just ONE?!?!?!? I’m going to cheat and say all of my family and friends. How can I pick just one?!?!

Do you prefer all happy movies, or occasional sad movies?

Preferably all happy movies. I’ll watch sad movies if I’m with other people who also want to watch it, but I definitely try to avoid reading sad books if I can help it.

What is the one food that always makes you happy?

PIZZA. Or oatmeal… there’s nothing better than a steaming bowl of oatmeal and raisins in the morning.

What is the sunshine on your blog?

The comments section! I love reading everyone’s comments even though I’m usually pretty slow at finding time to respond to them all. I appreciate each and every one of them ❤

What is your favorite holiday?

CHRISTMAS.

What is one thing you love about yourself?

My ability to remember song lyrics even when I haven’t listened to a song in years.

What is one thing you love about the blogging community?

I love how incredibly kind and supportive everyone is in the blogging community, especially when it comes to inclusiveness.

What is the one book that made you smile the most?

Definitely The BFG by Roald Dahl. No matter how many times I read this book it will always make me laugh!

Where is your corner of sunshine in your home?

At the moment, it’s the Christmas tree in the corner of our living room. I love when the house is decorated for Christmas!

What is your favorite color or colors?

Probably yellow and mint (or is it called turquoise/teal? It’s the color of my blog…).

What is the one movie (or drama) that always makes you happy?

Definitely Jurassic Park. It’s such a wacky story and I love the cheesy, witty banter between all of the characters.

As per usual with these kinds of posts, I’ll pass along the same questions that I answered for those that I’ve nominated. Thanks again to Dani for nominating me! Answering these questions was a blast!

Liebster Award | 6

I hope you’re all having a great Friday! Today I’m here to share another Liebster Award. Thanks so much to Lyndsey @ Lyndsey’s Book Blog for tagging me!!

  • Thank the person(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions they gave you.
  • Nominate 11 blogs and let them know they’ve been tagged.
  • Give them 11 questions to answer.

If you could live in any fictional world (doesn’t have to be fantasy, just any book world) which would it be?

Definitely Middle-earth!! Choosing a specific location there would be really difficult, though… they all sound so beautiful.

Which fantasy creature would you love to have as a pet?

Probably a phoenix because Fawkes is so darn cute. 

If you could control one of the elements (earth, air, water, fire) which would you choose?

I would choose to control water because then I could walk around without an umbrella and not get wet.

Do you prefer tea or coffee? How do you take it?

I’m an avid tea drinker and always drink it black.

Would you rather be too hot or too cold?

Too cold because you can always put on more layers. Also, sweaters! Fuzzy socks! Steaming mugs of tea!

What’s your favorite color?

Yellow! Though recently I’ve taken a liking to light pink as well.

 

Team Edward or Team Jacob?

EDWARD. Funny you should ask because my mom has been reading the Twilight series lately and watching the movies… I keep having flashbacks to when I read them in middle school!

Go to your Goodreads to read list, what’s the fifth book on your list?

The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. I’ve been meaning to read it for YEARS, but I always forget about it when I go to pick up a new book.

Ketchup or mayonnaise?

Definitely ketchup! I hardly ever eat mayo.

Do you prefer paperbacks, hardbacks, ebooks or audiobooks?

PAPERBACKS. I love reading physical books and paperbacks are smaller and cheaper than hardbacks. I do like listening to audiobooks every once in a while, especially while doing other things like exercising, knitting, etc.

Who would be your dream book boy/girlfriend?

My answer to this question is always Jonah from Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. ❤

  1. What book are you currently reading?
  2. What book did you most recently finish?
  3. What is the prettiest book on your bookshelf?
  4. How do you organize the books you own?
  5. If you can learn any language, which one would you choose?
  6. Where have you always wanted to visit?

suspense-42

What kind of posts did you write most this year?

My regular posting schedule usually consists of a mix of book reviews, tags, and Top Ten Tuesday posts. I think it’s a good balance, especially since I’m away at college for most of the year and can’t devote a lot of time to blogging then.

What’s the accomplishment you’re most proud of?

Hmm… this is a hard question! Academics are really important, so probably the progress that I’ve made over the years as far as school and college goes.

Random: what’s your favorite food?

I have two: pizza and pancakes! You can’t go wrong with either, no matter the time of day!

jane eyre coverWhich character’s name would you give your future child/pet?

I actually wrote a whole post about naming PLANTS after characters, but I think a lot of them can transfer over to children or pets. In particular, I would definitely love to name a daughter Jane after Jane Eyre.

Random again: how old are you going to be next year?

21! It’s a little scary to think about, actually… I feel so old!

suspense-43

Once again, I’m going to use the same questions that the person who nominated me asked. Here are Marta’s questions:

  1. What kind of posts did you write most this year?

Entertainer Blogger Award

book-courtship-7

Hello, hello! How is everyone doing today? Recently while eating my usual morning bowl of granola I discovered that I had been nominated for the Entertainer Blogger Award. Not only are these posts really fun to put together, but I also feel as though they help bring the blogging community closer through recognizing other bloggers. A big thanks to the Closet Readers for nominating me!

suspense-36

  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Nominate 12 other bloggers.

suspense-37

Why did you start your blog in the first place? 

I started my blog in high school to keep a record of my thoughts on the books that I read. Initially I had no idea that such an active, enthusiastic, and bookish blogging community even existed. Now I blog not only to record my bookish thoughts but to connect with other readers as well.

What is your favorite book? 

Ah, the most difficult question of all! I don’t have a definitive, single answer to this question, but here are a few of my all time favorite books:

  • Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
  • Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • The Outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place by E.L. Konigsburg

I’m sure there are others as well, but these are the ones that immediately come to mind. It really depends on my mood as to what my favorite book is!

What do you dislike the most? 

People who are disrespectful, inconsiderate, or simply mean. There’s no reason not to be kind!

What is your favorite food item from the mall? 

PRETZEL BITES. They’re hot and buttery and everything wonderful in this world. ❤

What is your favorite pastime? 

Besides reading and blogging, my favorite past times are writing, knitting, and crafting. I especially love filling in Wreck This Journal pages, which I’ve shared many of on this blog in the past.

suspense-38

What an interesting and kind of random assortment of questions! Nevertheless, they were a lot of fun to answer. What are your answers to these questions? Let me know in the comments section below!

suspense-31

This is excellent timing because these questions are perfect for the turn of the new year!

What will be your new year’s resolution?

I’ll undoubtedly have many New Year’s resolutions (I love making resolutions!) but I think one of my most important goals is to slow down an appreciate more. This applies to reading, blogging, and life in general. Particularly with blogging, I want to stop feeling like I need to race through books just to check them off of a list. There’s value in taking time with a book!

How would you describe your perfect Christmas?

Quality time with family around the tree, lots of laughter, and homemade coffee cake for breakfast.

Do you have a daily routine for blogging?

Yes! Now that I’m home from college for winter break I can finally get back into my blogging routine. Usually I read through and comment on posts on other blogs while eating breakfast and then work on my own posts for a bit. Blogging is a great way to start the day!

What are some of the things/books you are looking forward to next year?

  • Being able to take two English classes in one semester.
  • Performing with my college’s tap dancing group at our annual show in February.
  • Reaching the halfway point in my undergraduate college career (this is also a bit terrifying!).
  • Hearing all about my brother’s experiences as a college freshman!

2017 should be an exciting and interesting year!

Weird/Funny: Which Marvel Avenger (or any other superhero/heroine) do you think best represents you?

Definitely Captain America (and not just because he’s my favorite!). I’m a rule follower by nature and I can really relate to a lot of the values that Steve Rogers stands for.

suspense-32
