The Versatile Blogger Award

I wasn't planning on posting anything today since I wanted to concentrate in my reading (Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles), but I couldn't help myself because... Amaterasu just got its first ever award!

You can't imagine how happy we are. Amaterasu is just two weeks old and we get our first award already? Woah. We didn't expect this at all.

We got the award from Jane over at moydrook reads! Head over to her awesome site, drop by and say hi!

The Rules for the award are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

7 things about me (since this is Kai posting, I'm gonna post facts about myself):

1. I can speak Japanese and a little bit of Korean. I was so obsessed with Japan since my mom used to work there before that when I had the opportunity to work there I grabbed it, but I had to learn the language first. 2 months of hardcore Nihongo can kill you, really. So you see why the Japanese reference? Amaterasu is the Sun Goddess in the Japanese folklore.

My love for Korean I got from being an avid fan of Kpop. I used to be a big fangirl but as I got older, not that much anymore. I can read and write in Korean (self-taught) but I can barely hold a conversation using the language.

2. I have a twin who is a total opposite of me. For one, he's a guy, and he hates reading. Once I tried to make him read Harry Potter (this was in High School) so I borrowed it from the school library and he never even touched it. Most of the time people mistake us for a couple, to this day I don't know why. I guess we're that close?

3. I only started liking and reading YA books. Until 2 years ago, I was reading romance (Mills & Boon, Harlequin, etc.) since its what's in my mom's bookshelf. I can't remember the first YA book I've read, but to this day, I only read Y.A. books and I think I'll be sticking to the genre for a long time.

4. I share the same birthday as Jessica Simpson.

5. When I'm not reading, I love watching sports. Any kind. I don't play but I love watching. I love basketball, billiards, I even got into the World Cup fever. And F1. And boxing! I also watch UFC fights with my dad and brothers. Usually, my friends would say I'm a guy on weekends since I watch these shows without fail. I'm actually in it for the hot guys. ;)

6. I'm a really compulsive buyer. If there's one thing I can't resist, its books. Most of the time I buy whatever I think is good, but I never get to read most. You should see my bookshelf. Sometimes I wonder how I can look forward to getting new books when I haven't even read most of what's in my bookshelf.

7. I am afraid of chickens. Wait, scratch that. I am afraid of any animal with feathers. I have this weird thing going in my head that when I get near them they'll chase me and poke me to death. Ironic, really, since I love eating chicken.

Since we're fairly new and I really don't know a lot of people in the blogosphere just yet, I'll be passing out the awards to 8 people for now.
  1. Brooke (Cupcake Queen Book reviews)
  2. Misha (My Love Affair with Books)
  3. Gilliene (Eep! Geek!)
  4. Michelle (Windowpane Memoirs)
  5. Chachic (Chachic's Book Nook)
  6. Tina (One More Page)
  7. Jenny (Supernatural Snark)
  8. An (Down the Rabbit Hole)


  1. WHAT! no way :) Thank you soo much! It means a lot a lot a lot!

  2. Yes! :)
    You're very much welcome! I really think you deserve it! ^^

  3. Thanks so much for choosing me for this award!!!! And I don't blame you for being afraid of chickens, I fear them as well. And geese. Geese are mean!

  4. Congrats on the award! I'm a fan of Japanese and Korean culture, I love watching the dramas from over there. I can pick up on some words, but I need to learn more before I can watch the shows without subtitles.

  5. hi, can you add me in your blog roll....

  6. Thank you so much for the award! I think it's cool that you have a twin. I can totally relate to reading mom's romance books! Those were the only books around the house so I read them. Thankfully, I re-discovered the wonderful world of YA and fantasy when I started working and I already had money to buy the books that I want.

  7. Oh and hope you enjoy Perfect Chemistry! It's in my favorites list. :P


I love getting comments from my readers and fellow bookworms, and I try my best to respond to all of them. Feel free to give me a piece of your thoughts. Also, this is an award-free blog. I simply don't have the time to highlight them anymore, but thank you for thinking of my blog!
