Hi everyone! Once again, I’m catching up on different posts that I’ve been tagged/nominated for! I was graciously nominated by Danni @ _forbookssake and Meagan @ Quibbles and Scribbles (the link to their posts will be with their questions) last month!
Have I been procrastinating from doing actual work on my blog over the last week (and possibly month)… well maybe (and it has nothing to do with school and having the summer semester starting on Tuesday)? *Looks down while saying no.*
It’s been a crazy couple of days with some of the book community drama that I haven’t felt like doing anything other than read (if that). I was able to update some of release pages (July and August) and added September, then I rearranged some of the graphics for blog tours, finally finished adding the rest of the books I read in 2019, and added so referral links/codes on my About page! So even though I wasn’t feeling the best, I was able to get something productive done to make it slightly better.

Things About Me:
- Music is probably being played in the background when I’m doing anything.
- My grammar has improved vastly since senior year of high school.
- I don’t read classics in my free time (the only reason why I bought a copy of A Tale of Two Cities if because of Will and Tessa).
- I love to drive on warm days with the windows down and music playing loud.
- I don’t like watching movies.
- I have books EVERYWHERE in my bedroom! There’s barely any room to walk now.
Meagan’s Questions from Quibbles and Scribbles:
What’s something you always wanted to do but just haven’t gotten around to it?
I’ve always wanted to paint the edges of some of my books! Do you know how stressful it is because I can barely paint as it is but then the possibility of ruining my book or painting the pages to the point of being stuck together… idk if I have it in me!
What time do you usually go to bed?
I normally go to bed around 9 or 10 in the evening before the corona virus but now it’s like 11 or midnight.
What’s the most out-of-character thing you’ve ever done?
Mmm… I’m not sure. I’m pretty basic tbh.
What’s something you’ve tried that you’ll never try again?
I have no idea! I like to think of myself as someone who tries to live in the moment and continue to try things (even the ones that I didn’t care for).
What is the stupidest thing you’ve done because someone dared you to?
I’m drawing a blank! Idk if its from the lack of dares or from momentarily blacking out while doing the dare!
Danni’s Questions from _forbookssake:
If you had to choose between reading ONLY your favourite book/series for the rest of your life, and being allowed to read anything EXCEPT your favourite book/series for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
I’m going to have to say the Ghost Bird Series by C.L. Stones for several reasons.
- It’s one of my favorite series.
- There’s currently 12 books out (there’s rumored to be 20 books in the series by the time it’s over and possibly a spinoff when the characters are older).
- I’m at the point in the series where I can read the books out of order.
- I fall in love with the books every time I read them.
You can bring one author back from the dead to write a new book, who would you choose? and why?
Well, all of the authors that I really enjoy reading are all still alive, so I’m going to change the question a little to authors that don’t (or rarely) publish anymore.
For the changed question, I’d have to go with Huntley Fitzpatrick! I love Huntley’s books My Life Next Door and The Boy Most Likely To. She’s a wonderful contemporary writer who had published her latest book in 2015.
What is your all time favourite piece of art?
I don’t have a favorite piece of art per see because so many different pieces from different time periods always catch my eye and has a story of its own to tell. Naturally, I gravitate toward the bright landscape works like Monet and Van Gough, but I also like the black and white / monotone art pieces.
Other than reading, what are your main hobbies?
I dabble (I sound like an old person using the word dabble) in a bit of everything because I’m one of those annoying people who can pick up most things! I play video games, watch YouTube and tiktok, listen to music, garden, cook, tend to my pets every need, take pictures for bookstagram… you get the point.
What are your top 5 bookish pet peeves?
I’m a pretty chill person when it comes to things that people do with their books.
- Breaking the spines of books
- Tear pages out of books
- Throwing books around
- Getting books wet (besides the tears I cry when reading)
- Not caring about books’ general condition
- What book did everyone love but you can live without?
- Describe your personality with 5 book characters.
- Who are you biggest blogging (or writing) inspirations?
- What is your favorite social media platform?
- What trope do you wish more people apricated?
