    i would be interested in seeing photos you would take at the botanical gardens.
    what do you do with all the books after you have read them?
    seems like you spend a lot of $$ on the books or do you get them from the library or do you buy them all??

      I borrowed the books from the library and publishers allowed me to download some of their titles to read in exchange for an honest reviews. I don’t buy many books. I normally delete off the ebooks after I reviewed them unless I really liked them then I keep them. I’m not into photography, not fancy pictures like yours haha Just pictures of me & flowers haha


      • buddy71 says:

        you dont have to be fancy to show off your photos and the posts that are of your trips are nice as you pick interesting things to point your camera. and of course who would not like to look at photos of you. 🙂

    !!! This is the first time I’ve ever been in a book tag/award! I feel so honored! Thanks, Jasmine.
    Also– I am all about the ice cream too. Favorite Haggen Daz flavor? I have a sweet spot for sweet cream coffee caramel. Yum!

    Jasmine, I think I might’ve ended up in your spam folder earlier. I just wanted to let you know I commented this morning, and I think I’m out of spam jail. Thanks for the tag! Love your questions for us. And I bought Cinder after you mentioned how good it is. 🙂


    • Jasmine says:

      Thanks Megan. I see you are nominated for the same award by the same blogger, will you be doing yours soon? I will have to try mixing those two fruits next time because I normally use a bunch of frozen berries 😊

        Yes! I’m trying to get caught up on all the tags, but I don’t wanna post more than one a day. So tonight I was gonna post the Book Blogger Insider tag that you tagged me in, and then either tomorrow or the next day do the Sunshine Blogger Award. But yes, they’ll be up soon! I pretty much love all types of berries, but strawberry and banana are my fave. 🙂

    Congrats on the nomination 😊 and thank you for nominating me ❤️
    Great answers, physical books are much better than ebooks.

    Looking forward to answering your questions 😊❤️

    Thanks for the tag, Jasmine! 🙂 I did this one a while back, but I’ll add it to my queue. I’m pretty backlogged at the moment, but I love your questions and will make sure I get to this one. I bought Cinder the other day. I’m looking forward to getting into that series. It sounds amazing. Awesome questions! I am having terrible writers block at the moment.

      Sorry about locking you up in spam jail for so long! hehe.. When you get a chance, I am interested in reading your answers. I like reading your blog posts. They are upbeat and interesting. Time is so tight to do everything so I can understand your position. I work 8 to 5 and family wanting outing on the weekend, my reading time and blog visits are squeezed. I wish I have more time to read all of your blog posts.

        No problem. Thank you for freeing me! 🙂 Thank you! I’m glad you think so. I have a ton of questions to answer this week from my 6 month Q&A giveaway. I’ll try to get these done in the next week or so. I know what you mean. I have hardly any time anymore and I’m moving to another state in two weeks. It’s getting hectic.
