Blogger Recognition Award

Thank you Find Me At The Library for nominating me for this award! I love your blog, and wish you the best. ๐Ÿ™‚

Moving on (because I’m seriously running out of time today! )

The Rules:

โ€“ Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.

โ€“ Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who youโ€™ve nominated in the post.

โ€“ Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above).

โ€“ Comment on each blog and let them know youโ€™ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.

โ€“ Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing!

How My Blog Started:

Well, I used to love making playlists for books and noted them down in a diary. I had this idea in my head of posting them one day on my own blog. Then suddenly one fine afternoon I decided to give a try and hence What More Is Tomorrow.. (then simply named Thelonelybooklover) was born, and my first post, Unmaking Hunter Kennedy playlist was made. ๐Ÿ™‚

Advice For New Bloggers:

I don’t consider myself to be good enough for advice yet, but I think whatever you do, DO NOT isolate your blog for days. Also, don’t restrict all your posts to ONE specific genre unless you are confident that you no a LOT about it, if you get what I mean. Otherwise, just do what your heart says, like every advice ends. ๐Ÿ˜›

Dying of cliche-ness. XD

Beautiful Blogger Award

Thanks Bhramori and Alex for nominating me!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Both of them are amazing people who happen to be from my own country and are also my soul sisters!!!

I know Bhramori well, we both go to the same school and are in the same class. And although her perfectionism gets on my nerves a ton of times ( You know that don’t you, Bhramo :-P), she’s one of my favorite people ever. So for those who haven’t been to her blog yet, what are you waiting for?

As for Alex (which isn’t really her name), I’ve only known her from blogging. But she’s one of those rare people with whom I’ve found an instant connection. Both of us have similar choices, we read similar books, and hype over the same celebrities. Our similarities are creepily amazing!!! I’m so glad that we came across each other.

And before I go on with the never-ending qualities of these two truly beautiful people, lets proceed with my post. But do check out their blogs. ๐Ÿ™‚

THE RULES

Link to the blogger who took the time to nominate you. List seven random things about yourself. Nominate seven creative, beautiful bloggers. Notify the amazing people that you nominated for the award.

7 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME

1. I hate typing. I wish I could just write a post and have someone to type it out for me! ๐Ÿ˜›

2. I can play the harmonium and the guitar (only somewhat), but I’d love to learn how to play the violin and the flute.

3. I’m not on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Whatsapp. Translation: I’m quite unsocial. ๐Ÿ˜›

4. I have one side of my cupboard filled with unusual word meanings. Bhramori, this is all your fault.

5. I’d love to study Humanities, but I’m currently stuck with Science. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

6. I have a tendency of trusting and/or falling for the COMPLETELY wrong person.

7. I often feel like straightening my hair permanently, but then back out when people say it won’t suit me.

MY NOMINEES:

Amy@ cl0udbusting : One beautiful person. Another friend I’m glad to have made. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tasha @ Head in the clouds, heart in the books: Another name that comes into my head when I think “beautiful blogger”. And I mean it from the bottom of my heart ๐Ÿ™‚

Only The Lonely: Her posts touch my heart. And have you noticed the coordination between her blog name and my URL ?? ๐Ÿ˜€

Mrinmoyee @ toomanyfandoms : Mrin-laaa.. ๐Ÿ˜€ You totally deserve this award!!!! Guys check out her blog. Its new but its awesome! โค Just so you know, mrin-la (as I like to call her ever since we read Uglies by Scott Westerfield) is a close friend of mine although we havent met for over a year now.

Harry Potter series, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory ( Although I watched only half of it, that too, day before yesterday *ducks rocks thrown* ) and A Walk To Remember.

  • Gone Girl (Gillian Flynn)
  • Slammed (Colleen Hoover)

๐Ÿ˜ฆ But I missed so many books…

2. Do you prefer to be alone or around other people?

Depends. But mostly I prefer to be around other people. Not because I’m a very people’s person or an extrovert or anything, but because it helps me to camouflage myself, it saves me from my own thoughts sometimes. Okay, I think that was too deep..

Reading. Obviously. Its my lifeline.

4. If I were to give you ยฃ50, what would you spend it on?

Umm.. Errrr… Okay, there is this particular person I’ll always miss, although I don’t know why. Its not like I was ever there in his life in the first place. But…. my heart is just stupid, it doesn’t know how to take a hint.

6. Top 5 favourite songs? (Again, one just wonโ€™t doโ€ฆ)

  • Need You Now (Lady Antebellum)
  • The Only Exception (Paramore)
  • Fix You (Coldplay)
  • Teardrops On My Guitar (Taylor Swift)
  • Wake Me Up When September Ends (Green Day)

7. *Clichรฉ* What do you want to โ€˜beโ€™ when youโ€™re older?

I WANT to be a librarian. Or a book reviewer (is that even a job??). But these are just impossible dreams. I’ll probably have some stupid boring job. *sigh*

8. What are your favourite names?

Great question!!!!

Delilah is my top favorite.. Then there’s Dare, Asher, Adele, Maya, Samantha or Sam, Finn… I find Indian names really complicated but Shruti is is a nice name..

9. At this precise moment, whatโ€™s most important in your life?

:-/ Sorry for the boring answer, but my class 12 final exams, getting into college…
