The Sunshine Blogger Award #2

I was nominated for The Sunshine Blogger Award by Rachel (who also nominated me last time!).

Rachel’s questions:

What’s the worst book you had to read for school?
This is going to sound like a cop out answer, but I don’t know! I can’t remember books that I’ve disliked reading for school, although I’m sure they exist.

Within your own country, where would you most like to visit that you haven’t already been?
San Francisco! It seems like such a nice place and I actually wanted to move there for a while.

What’s the best first line of a book you’ve ever read?
I have a really bad memory for stuff like this. Again, I cannot remember.

Do you have any tattoos and do you want any?
I have four (I keep forgetting and saying I have three, though)! There are definitely more I want, but I’m still deciding. Here are my current ones:

If you watch booktube, who’s your favorite booktuber?  If you don’t watch booktube, what’s your favorite thing to watch on youtube?
I’m an ASMR fiend. I find the videos so relaxing and try to watch them most nights before bed. My favorites are Sophie Michelle and Karuna Satori.

Which classic do you think more people should read?
The Stranger! I’m not big on classics but I enjoyed it, and it’s pretty quick.

What would you consider the most overhyped and the most underhyped book you’ve read in the last year?
Overhyped: Gone GirlUnderhyped: The Pisces, 10000%.

Would you like to work in the publishing industry, or do you prefer to keep books and reading strictly a hobby?
Part of me would like to, but I do think it would have a negative impact on my love of reading.

If you’re a writer, which author’s style do you think is most similar to your own?  If you’re not a writer, which author’s style do you connect with the most as a reader?
I think I really connect with Joe Hill’s style, which is why he’s one of my favorite writers. I just find myself so immersed in his stories.

What’s your least favorite book cover?
I don’t even know how to begin to answer this. Since I recently read The Woman in Black and had to deal with the very bad movie cover, I’ll have to say most movie tie-in covers.

Who’s your favorite actor/celebrity?
My fav celebrity is Griffin McElroy, he’s an angel and he and his wife are honestly relationship goals.

My questions:

  1. Do you listen to any podcasts? If so, what are your favorites?
  2. Do you genre hop when you read or do you tend to stick to the same genres?
  3. What’s the best movie you’ve watched so far this year?
  4. Earbuds or over-ear headphones?
  5. What’s your favorite way to treat yourself?
  6. Do you have a hobby that not a lot of people know about?
  7. Tea, coffee, or hot chocolate?
  8. What’s your favorite kind of weather?
  9. What’s your favorite mythical creature?
  10. What’s your favorite thing about yourself?
  11. Are you a pumpkin person?

  1. I keep telling myself I should give ASMR a chance, and I do watch an occasional cooking ASMR video, but the ones where someone whispers into a microphone just creeps me out and it certainly doesn’t relax me. I wonder what it is about ASMR that it’s great for some people and others don’t like it. Still a great post. Your tattoos are all so pretty!

    1. It’s definitely a subjective thing! There are also so many types, which I think is neat. Maybe it’s like cilantro — some people like it, some people can’t stand it. 🙂 And thank you!!

  2. Tattoo queen!!! I really want to go to San Francisco too! It’s so tragic because I’m actually from California but I’ve never been north of Los Angeles. Let’s go to San Fran!! Also I LOVE The Stranger and obviously agree that The Pisces is the most tragically underhyped book ever.

    1. Omg I love being tattoo queen!! That’s super tragic and I’m totally down for a San Fran trip hell yeah. I’m so terrified whenever someone I know says they’re going to read The Pisces (by every time, I mean it’s happened twice) because if they don’t love it I know I’ll feel so judged.

      1. Omg this is sort of related but one of my friends met someone recently who loves YA lit and this girl said to her ‘I read a great YA book recently, The Pisces!’ And my friend (who has also read The Pisces) was like ‘??????????????????? YA ???????????????????’

    1. Thank you so much!!

      It’s a super polarizing book and I think you’ll be able to tell early on if you’ll like it. I hope you end up getting to it and enjoying it! I anticipate it being my top read of 2018. 🙂
