Good morning, roadlings!
Aaaand here we are, at the very last tag post of the month! On Friday I’ll be wrapping up this blog party with all the giveaway winners and links and such. I can’t believe it’s almost over!
(You can still enter all three giveaways for the nine separate prizes until midnight Central time Sept. 29, so if you missed out, hop on over there! ~ Writing Giveaway | Past/Present/Future Book Giveaway | Lord of the Rings Giveaway ~)
Anyhow, I have two tags actually today, so I shall proceed to go through those to finish the tag part of this month’s celebration!
Lovely authoress/blogger Shantelle Hannu @ A Writer’s Heart tagged me a few centuries ago (a.k.a. January) for the Infinity Dreams Award! Thanks, Shantelle! ^_^ (Everyone go check out her blog because it’s awesome and she is a thoroughly lovely person. ❤ She also currently has a blog series going every Monday called Hidden Gems: Authors You Need To Discover, and it has interviews and giveaways and is a lot of fun, so check it out! :))
I’ve done this tag before but am doing it again because fun questions, yay! (I’m really bad at coming up with 11 facts about myself, soo… as per usual, I’m just doing the questions… And, again, not tagging anyone specific, but feel free to consider yourself tagged if it looks fun!)
How many books do you hope to read this year?
Well… my “official” goal is 60 on Goodreads… which I managed to accomplish this month! *partying* But I’d like to read at least 75 if I can.
What’s your favorite song?
Never-Ending Road by Loreena McKennitt and Tell Your Heart to Beat Again by Danny Gokey.
What’s your least favorite holiday?
I don’t think I have a least-favorite… I know a lot of people who get depressed over Valentine’s Day so maybe that one; but then again there are the chocolate sales after…
Why do you blog?
I started because I wanted to start a sort of online presence for my writerly self, but I blog now because I can’t help it and I just love sharing things and talking with all you lovely commenters and… I don’t know! It’s just fun and I love it. 🙂
It’s silly, but I still get really excited seeing a blog post take shape… I think it out and write it and put it together with some pictures and links and things, and then I post it and… it’s so shiny and finished and it makes me happy. (Please tell me I’m not insane. >.> Oh, wait, too late. :P)
Chocolate cake! Preferably a moist heavy one with frabjous frosting. Yum. I pretty much like most things that are a) chocolate, or b) mint-ish, or c) lemon if it’s the right kind and nice and sweet.
One movie coming out in
2016 2017 you want to watch?
Um. Since this year is almost over, I’m going to change it to 2017 and say BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! 😀
Some books set for 2016 releases you want to read?
Ones that haven’t come out yet that I’m excited about are Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (sequel to Six of Crows), An Earthly King by Hazel B. West (sequel to Blood Ties), and The Silent Songbird by Melanie Dickerson (final Hagenheim book).
What historical era intrigues you most?
I like medieval times but usually in a fantasy-world setting… the 1700s is usually my favorite actual-history time-period (muskets and tricorn hats and coats!), though I’d be really interested to see the Celtic cultures back wayyy long ago since so much of the Celts’ history has been lost/destroyed and I’d like to know how it really was, not how people now hypothesize that it was.
Where would you love to visit?
The British Isles! Ireland and Scotland and all of it. ❤
What things inspire you to write/blog?
I don’t know! o.o Things just… come to me. And then I write them. Or blog about them. I guess my ever-active brain is always finding things to mull over… It can be exhausting at times! (Especially at 2 a.m. when I’m STILL trying to fall asleep and my brain is like “nope, too many interesting things to think about”. XD)
Some of your favorite blogs?
Since this is the last question of the Infinity Dreams part of this post, I’m going to take the opportunity to switch over to another tag here to answer this question. A tag… within a tag? Gotcha!
Mary @ Sunshine & Scribblings, and Jenelle Schmidt, both tagged me for the Blogging About Blogs Tag (here & here are their posts, if you’d like to see their own picks!), so I’m lumping that one in this post too, since we’re on the subject of blogs! Thanks very much to both of you!! ❤
Blogging About Blogs Tag
I always hate doing things like this, since I just KNOW I’ll accidentally leave some awesome people out of the list… But I thought I would do it anyway, to share the love for a few at least. So this is by no means a comprehensive list, and I love many more blogs that I don’t have time to list (please don’t feel bad if you’re not on here! If I comment at all on your blog, it means I love it too!) — these are just a few that fit the specific categories. 🙂
- Thank the person who tagged you
- Answer the questions
- Tag some blogging friends

I can think of way too many, which does not help… so I’ll say Adventure Awaits by Tracey.
