Julie @ Books and Insomnia

Julie is a Filipina blogger who pretends she has insomnia so she can stay up late reading. When she's not buried in books, she can be found watching anime, drinking chocolate-flavored instant coffee, lurking on the internet, daydreaming and talking about herself in third person. She loves purple and anything sweet!

    1. Hi, Sinead! Thanks for following. :) I'm also a newbie so I can't give expert advice. LOL Just be yourself, have fun and meet other bloggers. That's what I'm doing and so far, I'm having a good time blogging. ^_^ (You can visit these sites for bloggers: Blogaholic Network and Book Blogs)
      As for the Liebster award, you get nominated if your blog has less than 200 followers. A blogger nominates you and you follow the rules posted above. Then you pass it on to other bloggers. That simple. :)
