On Friday I was so excited to find out I was nominated by Sunshine and Cyclones for the Sunshine Blogger Award. This is a tag type award which means I will answer some questions set by Sunshine and Cyclones then set my own questions for more people to answer.
Here are the rules:
- 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 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 on your blog.
So now for the questions!
What’s your favourite part about having a blog?
I love being able to have a space to write my thoughts and opinions on book-related things.
Reading or writing? And why?
Definitely reading! I have don’t creative writing in school before but I much prefer reading other people’s work.
What’s your happiness formula? (eg- bed+book+tea=happiness)
That one just listed! I absolutely love being surrounded by family and friends, or a good book and a cup of tea.
What’s your favourite song?
I don’t think I have one favourite song… I really like James Blunt, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys and ABBA. I know, a rather varied mix.
Which superpower do you desperately need and why?
Telekinesis please! I’d love to be able to just hover a heavy hardback book in front of me so my arms don’t get tired.
Which language do you wish you could speak?
Well I studied Spanish for a few years at school but I don’t remember much of it. I wish I could learn more of the language because it sounds so beautiful.
Which book to show/movie adaptation is your favourite?
Pretty much any adaptation of Pride and Prejudice! I especially love The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YouTube.
What is your Patronus on Pottermore? (or your spirit animal if you aren’t a potterhead?)
I’m not really a potterhead but I love owls so I think they would be my spirit animal.
What social cause do you feel the strongest about? (eg- lgbtq+ rights, animal rights etc.)
All rights really. I feel especially strongly about gender equality but I believe in treating everyone and everything with respect.
What book made you cry the most?
The Fault in Our Stars. I’ve read it twice and cried so much both times. I also watched the film and cried a lot. John Green’s writing just gets me all emotional!
Favourite fictional book couple (OTP basically)?
Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. I just love the development of their love and how similar their flaws are without realising.
So now it’s my time to ask the questions:
Why did you create your blog?
What is your all-time favourite book?
What is your least favourite book?
What is your favourite genre?
Where do you enjoy reading? Do you need music or silence?
What film (book adaptation or new) are you most looking forward to in the near future?
Do you have a favourite musical? If so, what is it?
What was the last book you bought purely based on the cover?
What was the last book you bought purely after seeing it being reviewed on a book blog/video?
Tea or coffee (or neither)?
Where do you see your blog going in the future?
