Book of Water Tag: Avatar Blogger Award

Hello dear readers, I hope you are as excited about this as I am. I came up with this idea for a blogging award. I want it to get readers excited about doing tags and get them looking for the other three.

I will be posting a tag week by week in order, so if you’re looking for the other three, they may not be out yet!

Water. Earth. Fire. Air. I’ve heard stories about the old days, a time of peace when the Avatar Blogger kept balance between the Water Critics, Earth Reviewers, Fire Writers, and Air Readers. But that all changed when the Fire Writers attacked. 

Only the Avatar Blogger, master of all four blogging elements could stop the ruthless Fire Writers. But when the world needed them the most, they vanished. A hundred years have passed, and the Fire Writers are nearing victory in the war. 

Some people believe that the Avatar Blogger was never reborn into the Air Readers, and that the cycle is broken. But I haven’t lost hope. I still believe that somehow, the Avatar Blogger will return to save the book world!

How to become the Avatar Blogger:

  • To become the Avatar Blogger and save the book world from the Fire Writer Lord, the Avatar Blogger must master all four elements.
  • To master an element, a blogger must be tagged in the four following tags: Book of Water Tag, Book of Earth Tag, Book of Fire Tag, Book of Air Tag.
  • Once a blogger has posted all four tags to their page, they can message the Order of the White Lotus (@onmybookshelff) on twitter to receive the Avatar Blogger Award. (Not first come first serve. Everyone can get the award!)

Rules of this Tag: 

  • Thank whomever tagged you.
  • Callback to the creator of the tag: Andrew @ On My Bookshelf.
  • Answer the 7 questions below.
  • Help other potential Avatar Bloggers by tagging 3 other bloggers.
  • Spread the love and read other posts!

The young men of the water tribe often give a betrothal necklace to the women they intend to marry. 
What is your favorite book couple, or what two characters do you wish could be together?

I think my favourite book couple is Clare and Jaime Fraser. Nothing like love transcending time itself right? We can all hope to love and be loved like that I think.


Water tribe members are often recognizable by their blue clothing.
What are some of your beautiful blue book covers?


The first water benders learned to bend from watching the moon move the oceans.
Share a book you have with the moon on the cover or in the title.

Master water benders can use it fluidly to go from attacking to defending, giving it great diversity.
What genres do you like to read the most, and what is appealing about each of them?

Looking at my recent reads, all I’ve read for the past while is Fantasy. There are so many reasons why I love fantasy, and if you want to see them, read this post. Otherwise I’ve been reading some non-fiction lately and it has been really eye opening. I like reading different perspectives than my own.


Both the Northern and Southern Water Tribes live close to the spirit portals, meaning they live in harmony with nature.
Share pictures of one location in your country you’d like to inspire the setting of a book. 

Western Canada National Parks

This is Jasper National Park in Canada. I’m thinking its either the location of a spy base or the setting of a stranded type survival story.


Healing, ice, water, blood, cloud and plant bending are all forms of water bending, with a range of skills in each.
What is your favourite aspect of being a blogger?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and I think my favourite thing about blogging is the reading. That sounds lame I’m sure, but being a book blogger has made me read books I normally wouldn’t have picked on my own, and it’s had ups and downs, but overall it has been very fun.


Blood bending is considered an evil form of water bending, allowing you to manipulate the blood in a person’s body.
Who is your favourite book villain?

Iago, from the Shakespeare play Othello is my favourite I think. He is described as “the worst villain is the one who knows you best—the one you might even love.” He is a fantastic villain and a dangerous trickster.

If you have made it this far, you have mastered the element of Water, bringing you one step closer to becoming the Avatar Blogger. Good luck to you in your training.

I hope you all enjoyed this post, I really hope people continue with this and pursue the Avatar Blogger Award.

My Very Own Blogging Award

Hello dear readers, I have a bit of news for you today that I hope you’ll enjoy.

One of my goals this year was to come up with a blogging award. Originally it was supposed to be an award to showcase a selfless blogger who is always there to share a nice word and who is always willing to help others.

I had ideas to get that idea rolling, but nothing solid yet, so I might just hold that in my back pocket till I can work out the kinks.

BUT in the process, I did come up with what I think will be a really fun award that will get people wanting to do book tags.

I won’t give away too much just yet, but the name of the award is the Avatar Blogger award.

If you know anything about the show Avatar, you might be able to figure out that you might need to master four different elements or something??? I guess you’ll just have to wait and see.

What I can tell you is that the first part of that Award will be coming out tomorrow…so stay tuned!

How do you relax?

Reading, watching anime or Netflix, or just calming myself down at the end of the day

What language would you love to learn?

I think Mandarin would be really cool to speak, but more realistically something Western European. French or German I think.

Well Earth, since it has breathable oxygen, but Mars would look beautiful I think.

What’s your weird habit?

Not really weird, but I bite my nails sometimes, and it bothers me that people have one eye that is bigger than the other…

I will not be asking any questions, or tagging any people. From what I can tell, a lot of my blogging circle has done this award recently, so if you are in the mood for a tag, then count these questions and this post as your official tag!

The Liebster’s Award

Hello dear readers, I have a little bit of a treat for you today. I was tagged for the Liebster’s Award by the awesome Lauren at Lala’s Book Reviews. If you’re in need of more bookish content in your life, especially YA Books, her blog is the place to go.

There are a few rules that come with this award:

  • Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award
  • Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination
  • Give these blogs 11 questions to answer

Questions I need to Answer:

Which author(s) continue to surprise you with their work?
Honestly I’d have to say Brandon Sanderson. He has yet to disappoint me, and the worlds that he builds are truly awe inspiring.

What is a book that you know like the back of your hand?
I don’t really know. I don’t often re-read books, but if I had to choose, it would be certain books in the Redwall series (Martin the Warrior, Mattimeo, etc.)

What bookish world captivated you to the point you wish you could live there?
Steelheart World (Brandon Sanderson). I think it would be cool to see some “superheroes” living an everyday life, but I think I’d have a superpower too which would be cool.

What is something that always brighten day?
My dog. Even on my worst days he always greets me with a happy smile.

What is go to drink at a coffee shop?
Hot Chocolate. Coffee is yucky.

Do you buy books for looks alone?
Usually not, but I have. I usually buy them based off their back-cover synopsis.

Are you a mood reader or do you plan out a monthly TBR?
I sort of just read whatever series I am in the mood for. I don’t read based off of how I feel, just what type of story I am looking for.

What are your top 3 upcoming releases?
Game of Thrones 6, Kingkiller 3 and Stormlight Archive 4. I can’t wait for my favourite fantasy series to come out. I need them NOW!

Are you up to date with the Shadowhunter world?
I am not up-to-date in the current Shadowhunter world. I was until the 6th book of the original series, but I haven’t kept up-to-date with it since then. I’ve also read the Clockwork trilogy as well!

What book do you own the most copies of?
The Illiad and the Odyssey. At one point I owned three different copies of each, but I have now dwindled it down to one of each.

What is your favorite bookish item to collect?
POP figures. I don’t have that many, but I have POP figures of my favourite Game of Thrones characters and I am slowly collecting all of the Straw Hat Pirates.


Nominating:

I am not nominating anyone, because a lot of the people that I would tag probably did this on their own.

If you see this post and you think to yourself “I wish people tagged me in one of these awards” then I am nominating you!

Answer the same questions I answered, I look forward to seeing your answers.
