Two fabulous bloggers named Sarah @ Reviews & Read-a-Thons and Lily @ Cheeky Booky have nominated me for my 14th and 15th respective Sunshine Blogger Awards. Thank you both so much! Be sure to take a look at both of their stunning blogs!😘
So let’s get to it- just warning you all that this post will be a long one, so be prepared!
- Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post or blog
- Answer the eleven questions sent by the person who nominated you
- Nominate eleven new blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions (Because I still have a huge backlog of these to do, I will only be nominating three)
How long have you been blogging? What made you want to start?
For the first question, I have been blogging for about a year and a half now, and I started on April 10th, 2016. I have answered the second question in almost every award post I’ve been tagged in, so I don’t really feel like doing so again- my apologies!
Which book have you reread the most? Why?
As many of you may already know, I am not a big re-reader of books. I reread an old favourite from when I was younger (e.g. Junie B. Jones) every now and again to keep up with my reading challenge when I’m in a slump, but I usually don’t reread YA novels.
Do you read more backlist or new releases? Any particular reason why?
I read a bit more backlist books– they are easier for me to find because most of the books I read come from the library.
What’s your favorite book you’ve read so far this year?
It was AMAZING!!😍
Do you have any pets? If so, what kinds? If not, what kind of pet would you want to get if you could have any pet?
I have shared this many times before, but I have a Cockapoo dog named Max! If I could get any other pet, though, I’d either get a rabbit, chinchilla, or another dog.
I love him so much!💞
What is your favourite part of summer? Why?
My favourite part of summer is being a counsellor for 5-7 year old girls at a day camp. Although it can get hard some days when the kids don’t cooperate or get along with each other, I still love it so much!💜
What’s your favourite genre to read? What do you love about it?
People have been losing so much creativity in these questions, it’s insane. I have literally answered this so many times, but to answer again, it’s YA contemporary and I love it because I really enjoy being able to relate to a story.
If you could be best friends with any author, who would it be? Why?
Probably Jenny Han because on her Instagram page, I can always catch her eating delicious treats or travelling to awesome places. I would LOVE to have a bite out of some of those foods and a trip to all of those destinations!😂
Also, her books are so fluffy and happy and I always feel amazing after I read them.😊
If you could have one more book in any series that’s finished, what series would it be? What would you want to learn or discover in the continuation?
I can’t really think of a good answer to this right now because I believe that all of the series that I’ve finished reading ended on a good note without any loose ends to be tied. But just for fun, it would be cool to have another book in The Selection series!
What do you do in your spare times (besides read)?
Another question I have responded to about 10,000 times! Anyway, here goes again:
- Blogging (duh!)
- Homework (I am a nerd, I know🤓)
- Hang out with friends and family
- Use social media
- Watch YouTube videos
I’m sure there are more, but I just can’t think of them right now!
Who would you cast to play your favorite literary character? Why are they a good fit?
Okay, my apologies, but I have two reasons as to why I’m finding it hard to answer this question. 1) because I don’t really have a favourite literary character, and 2) because I don’t know many actors- I don’t watch a lot of TV or movies.
I’ll update if I find the two someones, I guess!😛
Which Disney princess do you relate yourself with?
I think that almost any reader would say this, but Belle as she is a huge fan of books!📚
What would the world be like if you are the leader? (Be as detailed as you like)
I have an unpopular answer here, but I feel like I would not really enjoy being the leader. That’s way too much responsibility placed into my two sole hands! One thing I would do, though, is make sure that more people are reading, especially kids and teens. I’d possibly start up some reading programs so people are excited and motivated to read both in and outside of school.😊
Top 5 pairings?
In no particular order…
1. Eva and Zenn from Zenn Diagram
2. Maddie and Olly from Everything, Everything
3. Anna and Étienne from Anna and the French Kiss
4. Steffi and Rhys from A Quiet Kind of Thunder
5. Allyson and Willem from Just One Day
I am probably forgetting so many, but here are some I love and passionately ship!💘
What animal is your patronus?
I couldn’t do the official Pottermore quiz without an account, so according to Buzzfeed’s unofficial test, I am a phoenix! Here is the description:
OH NO! Eric Cartman came and stole your favourite desert. What’s your favourite desert and how would you deal with it?
I don’t know who this character is, but anyway, my favourite desserts are chocolate cupcakes and I would forgive him easily if he stole them- I am that type of person.😂 I guess I’d just find something else to eat, haha!
What would you do if you won a huge jackpot from the lottery?
I would donate at least half of it to those in need, use some of it to travel, and then save up the rest of it for my future. 💸
What book do you think should be a video game?
The dystopian/science fiction book Nerve by Jeanne Ryan would make for an amazing video game. Would I play it, though? Ehhhh.
Vampires or zombies?
I am personally not a fan of either.🙅
You have the power of re-animation to bring back anyone from the dead. Who would you bring back?
I would bring back my three grandparents who have sadly passed on. I only really got to meet two of them, but I just miss them so much!💜💜
Would you be a superhero or a supervillain and what would your name be?
I’d be a superhero, but I’m not going to try to create a name because whatever it is would be cringey as heck.😂
And lastly the most important question: cats, dogs, both, or neither?
I am hands down a dog person. Cats are cute, but you can do so much more with dogs. Plus, they’re generally much friendlier!💞🐶
1. Where was the last place you travelled, and when was it?
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. Share your favourite meme or GIF!😂
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!😊
1. Kellie @ Kellie’s Book Nook
2. Keri @ Are You My Book?
3. Laura @ Shut Up I’m Reading
I know that most people have accumulated many of these awards (as you can tell by the title, I have as well), but this is ultimately just for fun. It is up to you whether you decide to participate or not, but I would love to read your answers to my questions!💜
So tell me, have you read any of the books mentioned? Opinions? Which animal is your patronus? Do you dis/agree with any of my answers? Let me know in the comments below.
