Here are the rules:

  • Elect 5 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.
  • 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 you’ve nominated in the post.
    • Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above).
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.
  • 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!

My Story 

I had a few blogs before settling on Paint and Butterflies Books, a fashion blog which I lost interest in and then later a personal blog called The Musings of Chlo but I found myself talking more and more about books which led to the creation of Paint and Butterflies Books. I have been writing and working on this blog for over two years now and it is always changing and growing just like I am always changing and growing. My reading has changed so much thanks to blogging, a world of books have been opened up to me which I wouldn’t have found without other bloggers and now my blog has taken a new turn by becoming part of the bookstagram community (@chloemckayyy) – like I said blogging is a constant evolution.

My Advice

Blog and blog often and about what you love. For me, it’s books, I have something to say about books about literature and that is what separates this blog from my former fashion blog which didn’t work out. I like fashion I LOVE books. I am passionate about stories, so I guess what I’m saying is write about what you’re passionate about, what you love and you’ll enjoy writing about it, you’ll want to write about it and your blog will be the best it can be.

Tanaz’s Questions

  1. Do you have a bookish playlist?

No not really for me books and music are pretty separate things.

2. Favourite book to film or book to t.v adaptation?

O1  Outlander Jamie and Claire

At the moment I am loving the t.v adaptation of Outlander it’s full of such drama and has been really faithful to the book. This doesn’t exactly count but I am really excited about the film adaptation of Brooklyn which is coming out this November, can’t wait to see how it plays out page to screen!

3.Top ten book covers?

There are so many beautiful book covers out there but the ones that immediately come to mind are all three Shatter me book covers, all the infernal devices covers particularly Clockwork Princess although all Cassandra Clare book covers are beautiful and I love how matchy matchy they all are! The Station Eleven book cover is stunning and I also really like the Stonemouth by Iain Banks hardback cover.

4.How long have you been blogging and what has it been like?

I have been blogging for about five years but this blog has only existed for two years. I started off fashion blogging with two other fashion bloggers but to be honest I lost interest as that wasn’t really something I was that passionate about and that blog no longer exists. I moved on to a more general blog where I wrote about all sorts of things and a lot of time that included books and reviewing book and then lead to me forming Paint and Butterflies Books. Since forming this blog I have such a great experience the ‘community’ has been so welcoming and I have read some books that I never would have read if it wasn’t for blogging, bloggers and other blogs.

5 .Do you have any blogger goals?

I just want my blog to develop and grow and hopefully maintain and grow my readership. I also want to learn and make whatever it is I am doing here the best it can be.

6. Favourite blog meme?

Not particularly I don’t really have a fave no.

7. If you had to create a blog meme/tag/feature what would it be?

I think it would have something to do with book villains so maybe a book villains feature I don’t think they get enough mentions 🙂
