Sunshine Blogger Award

Hello! Hope you’re having a good day, mine has been very chilled so far, which is always nice! Although I did manage to burn soup yesterday (a meal mostly made of water…) So that was quite impressive! And difficult to clean up this morning…

Anyway, on with the tag! Have I done this tag before? I’m not sure but the questions are all new so I thought I’d give it a go! Firstly a big thanks to Keri for tagging me- these are always fun to do! And here is her post!

  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules.

My Answers

What’s your favorite book to recommend?

Depends on what I’ve just read! At the moment I’m thrusting To Kill a Kingdom and A Darker Shade of Magic on anyone who will listen!

If you were forced to try out a new type of blog post (e.g. a new format or topic), what would it be about?

I’d like to try podcasts! I really enjoy listening to them and feel I have a face for radio! But I’m way to shy to ever try sadly.

If you had to dye your hair a color from the rainbow, what color would you pick?

Oh I’d love to dye my hair but have never actually done it. Probably red, but also maybe blue! I feel that’s just because I’m currently reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone though 🤔

Who’s an auto-buy author of yours?

At the moment? VE Schwab, Alexandra Christo, Angie Thomas, Tomi Adeyemi, I could go on. Although I will caveat this with I will check out the blurb before buying 😝

Your all-time favourite snack?

How do I pick just one???! Probably Nachos and cheese, or pizza. Or just anything with melted cheese really.

Current obsession? (e.g. movie, song, TV show, book)

Upstart Crow! It’s nerdy and all the jokes require an in depth knowledge of Shakespeare’s work and Network Rail but it’s hilarious!!

Tell us a little bit about your blogging routine?

I blog on the train in the morning and after work, but I sort of lack any official routine… Oops.

Tea or coffee and what’s your favourite kind?

Tea, my friend got me some chocolate black tea and that’s my favourite at the moment. Also thank you for recognising that not all tea is the same 😜

What’s your favourite day of the week?

Saturday! I get to see friends and go on trips and get up late and go to bed late and dinner always includes pudding.

If someone handed you a giftcard to a bookstore right now, what book would you buy with it?

So very hard to choose! Probably The Cruel Prince since I’ve been promising many bloggers I’ll read it 😬

What’s a goal of yours for 2019? (bookish, blogging-wise, other, it doesn’t matter)

To get to 600 followers! Hint hint nudge nudge 😝
