The Black Cat Blue Sea Award


Hi Everyone! Today, I am please to announce that I have been nominated for The Black Cat Blue Sea Award. What is this award you may ask? I have the same question myself because I don’t see this award often. Here is the explanation I found around the blogosphere: “This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it, and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.”

Thank you so much Marta @ The Book Mermaid for nominating me! Please take a moment to visit her blog because she has book reviews, tags, and more!


1.Anybody nominated can nominate eight other bloggers.
2.The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator.
3.The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.
4.If any of the questions asked are offensive or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.


1.Do you usually listen to music when you’re writing your posts?
No. I can only concentrate when it’s quiet.

2.What are your favorite posts to write?
I like to write book reviews, awards, and my travel experiences.

3.How many books did you read last month?
I read 7 books! Trying hard to keep this total each month so that my TBR list can get shorter! (I realized that this dream that might not come true and I’m not sure if I’m happy either way. I love to always have books to read but I feel accomplished once I finished reading a book).


1) Do you blog because you love to write or because you love to read?
2) Do you want to meet any of your blog friends in real life? or keep it virtual?
3) How many social medias do you join to support your blog?

    Congratulations on your award Jasmine! I also prefer to write when it’s totally quiet. Even certain sounds break my focus!
    And I’m sorry for only replying now but I only found the pingback now? I will try to get this done as soon as possible. Just know that I won’t forget it!
    Thank you so much for nominating me ❤

    Congrats on your nomination! I usually work without music, too, but a little bit of classical sometimes helps me along. And thanks so much for nominating me! ❤ I'm really excited to answer those questions and pass this award along 😀

    Congratulations on your nomination! I can’t concentrate with music on either, as much as I love music 😛 I find I either end up dancing or writing the lyrics instead of my post haha

        Haha! Yes, there have been a whole lot less brownies for a while now, though, because I was starting to get pretty fat :F. But thank you so much <3. I was wondering where you got that Edelweiss badge btw. I've browsed the entire site and couldn't find it anywhere?

    I’m the same as you, I can’t concentrate on blogging unless it’s quite. Though sometimes to drown out noise I put on nature sounds through Spotify which is probably the only thing I can listen to and still be able to concentrate. 🙈
    Thank you so much for the nomination! 💕

    I also can’t concentrate if there’s music playing in the background. I need quiet, too. Thanks for the nomination! You nominated some wonderful blogs!

    It was great to know the actual meaning of the award because I didn’t know what was about, but every time I need to pick some bloggers to nominate, I always choose some that I love and admire! ❤ Thanks for answering! I hope you get to read as many books as you want 🙂
