Hi everyone!👋

Guess what?! I’m back with yet another Sunshine Blogger Award nomination, my fifth one, to be exact! Thanks so much to the amazing Lena @ bookfandom1001 for the tag!❤️She is rather new to blogging, and I suggest you check out her site for awesome book reviews, lists, and tags.

Here are the rules (which if you’ve been reading all my other Sunshine Blogger Award posts, you’ll probably have memorized by now😂)

Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog. 

Answer the eleven questions sent by the person who nominated you

Nominate eleven five new blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions

List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog

Now for Lena’s questions:

Who’s your favourite YouTuber and why?

I honestly don’t watch a lot of YouTube, but sometimes when I’m utterly bored, I’ll watch Bart Baker parodies. They can get super funny, and even though they’re sort of mean to their actual artists, I love them!😂😂Screen Shot 2016-10-23 at 11.41.33 AM.png

Do you prefer hardback or paperback?

I actually really like both for different reasons, but I think I prefer reading from a paperback book. They’re just lighter and easier to carry around, not to mention that they fit way better on my bookshelf!

How old were you when you started reading?

I was actually the ripe old age of 18 months when I started reading. When I started kindergarten at age 4, everyone was only just learning to read, while I, on the other hand, was practically reading chapter books. I was basically addicted to reading, and would pick up and devour book after book after book.

What character in a book do you hate and why?


(Graphic from Google, I give credit to the creator)

I really dislike Queen Levana from the Lunar Chronicles. She is just so evil, but then again, I haven’t read Fairest yet, which is her backstory as to why she is the way she is.

Which do you prefer: audio or a book, and why?

Books all the way! I haven’t tried an audiobook yet, and I don’t think it would hurt to, but I’d probably lose interest quickly, and why listen to a story and possibly doze off when you can have it right in the palm of your hand with a book?

What is your annoying book habit?

One of my most annoying book habits is that if I don’t finish a book within a 3-day time period, I freak out! I am trying to chill out about this, but it can sometimes get hard when you see other bloggers finish two or more books a day!

What is your favourite book series?

I’ve answered this before, but I’ll answer again. My favourite series would probably have to be The Selection by Kiera Cass, despite all the controversy surrounding it. I just loved the drama and everything, and in spite of all the complaints, I actually didn’t mind America.


What genre do you love and why?

My favourite genre is YA contemporary, but lately I’ve been getting more into sci-fi and dystopia. I like contemporary stories because I find them easier to relate to and learn about possible real-life scenarios and how they are dealt with, but I like sci-fi as well, since it’s kind of cool to learn about life in a different type of world, and the sacrifices that one small change could bring.

How many books have you read?

On my Goodreads, it says that I’ve read 276 books. (Feel free to add me here!❤️) However, I have probably read a lot more, because I haven’t added the hundreds of books I read when I was younger, such as picture books and series like Junie B. Jones. So to be honest, I have no idea how many books I’ve actually read. Maybe around 1000?😶

What book did you like more than the movie and why?

I haven’t seen many book-to-movie adaptations, and I can’t really think of an answer to this question right now. Sorry, but I’m going to pass today, but I may come back to it if I think of something.

If you could be friends with one author, who would it be, and why?

Excellent question! I haven’t really thought about this before. I guess I’ll have to say Jenny Han, author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. I follow her on Instagram, and she seems to travel to a lot of cool places, as well as bake delicious treats. Who wouldn’t want a friend like that?!


My questions…

  1. If your region is currently in spring, what are you doing this summer? Or if not, what did you do this past summer?
  2. How many physical books do you own?
  3. Under what circumstances would you DNF a book?
  4. What was the last movie you saw in theatres? Did you enjoy it?
  5. What are your favourite and least favourite things about blogging?
  6. Tell me a teaser sentence from the book you’re currently reading!
  7. What device do you use to write your blog posts (computer, phone, etc.)?
  8. Tell me a little known fact about you that no other bloggers know.
  9. If you could travel anywhere in the world right this instant, where would you go, and why?
  10. What song is stuck in your head right now? (if any)
  11. Give a shoutout to 5 awesome bloggers, and spread the love like confetti!😊

I nominate…

  1. Alda @ A Wave of Books
  2. Chloe @ Paints and Butterflies Books
  3. Yasmin @ read books and drink coffee
  4. Emma @ thebookbrief
  5. Lilah @ Lilah’s Bookshelf

Feel free to pass up on this if you’d like, it’s really no problem.👍I’d love to see your answers, though!😄

So tell me, what would be your answers to my or Lena’s questions? Any answers you’d (dis)agree with? If you could be friends with an author, who would it be? Let me know in the comments below.

Au revoir!💜

  2. Another awesome blogger award!
    I didn’t love Selection…but it was cute. It was a nice book series. Not my fave, but I get it. I’m glad you’re getting into more sci-fi and dystopian…have you read Under the Never Sky? I think you’d love it!

      1. Oh it’s wonderful! Aria lives in a dome and she gets kicked out from a lie and forced to dwell in a radiated desert…she thinks she won’t survive but there’s others that have…she is saved by Perry. And it’s incredible. One of my fave series of all time! No insta-love but a deep love that develops over the three books. By Veronica Rossi. If you liked Selection, which I read after this series, I know you will like UTNS. It’s a trilogy.

  3. This is such a fun award. Sorry it’s taken me a while to get around to reading this post.
    I’ve only read The Selection but I don’t think that America is that bad, maybe she gets worse as the series continues, but I guess I’ll have to discover that for myself.
    I found that audio books are great for studying a text, I noticed that I pick up on a lot of the smaller details better when reading it the second time through when using an audio book.

    1. I know, right?! And it’s totally fine, no worries! In my opinion, America basically stays the same throughout the whole series, but I may be wrong, so you should still see for yourself. I just can’t focus enough when listening to an audio book, and plus when reading a paper book, I like to fiddle around with the pages to absorb everything. Thanks so much, Yasmin!❤
