I was tagged a second time to do this by Bookgraphy (thank you ❤ ) and Bree @In Love with Words (seriously guys, my cheeks hurt from smiling 🙂 ).I don’t know why I love answering questions, it’s oddly fun(?) so we are going to do this in style!
- Thank the blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
- List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post/or on your blog.
Why did you decide to start blogging?
I want to push my boundaries. Social media in general makes me anxious and I was following all of these book bloggers wanting to be apart of the community to talk books. So, this was my way of step out of my shy bubble.
What is your favorite outdoor activity?
Movies are fun. Or walking in the Long Beach Pier (I especially love the lighthouse at night).
What was your first blog post and would you change anything about it now?
It was a book review and you better believe I have already changed it because *cringe*
What is your favorite post you’ve written?
Any review that one of my all time favorite books, or monthly wrap ups (I’ve come to really enjoy writing them).
If you could be transported to any world from a book, where would it be?
Weep from Strange the Dreamer. Or anywhere Lazlo is ❤
Summarize your life, with three songs
- Simple Things – Miguel
- Candles in the Sun – Miguel
- After the Storm – Kali Uchis feat. Tyler the Creator
I was going more off of lyrics rather than titles…
if you hadn’t noticed, I love Miguel ❤
How do you come up with a blog post?
It is a literal random thought. I’ll be in the car and think huh, what if? and I’ll type up a mini draft on the WordPress app so I can come home and clean it up.
Do your friends and family know about your blog?
Only my mom and my sister, but because my mom is… well my mom, she’s probably told her entire job about it and random people on the bus XD
What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned from blogging?
My voice matters in a way. People come to my blog and read my random brain vomit. It’s a nice feeling 🙂 .
What is the Longest book you’ve read?
The longest book I’ve read according to Goodreads is Outlander, but I didn’t finish it, so the next best thing is Winter by Marissa Meyer coming in at 827 pages.
Where are you from, and what is the most common stereotype or misconception about your home town/state/country?
I’m originally from Compton, California and of course there the stereotypical racist ideals and such.
What is your all-time favorite romance novel?
I don’t normally read books with romance as a centered plot, but Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKells George… I GUSH ABOUT THIS BOOK TOO MUCH DON’T STOP ME.
Is there a certain book that launched your love of reading? Which book?
The Book Thief. I ended up looking crazy crying in the car outside the laundromat and my love for reading took flight.
Have you ever read a book that has actually scared you?
Ah… no? The horror genre doesn’t scare me in any format…
What is your favorite book-to-movie adaptation?
Is it sad that I don’t watch too many book to movie adaptations? I either watch the movie/ don’t read the book, vise versa or I like neither. I guess Pride and Prejudice (2005 version) is amazing, but I have to finish the book first… Look, I’m counting it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
List your dream cast for your favorite book.
I’m terrible at this!!! So, I’ll leave you with this from Gemina:
What are some of your favorite YouTube channels (if you watch them.)
I watch a lot of Youtube.
Name 3 items on your bucket list.
- Go to Italy
- Have a studio apartment
- Dye my hair the perfect shade of pink
What’s the most romantic thing that has ever happened to you?
Um… haven’t had any romantic experiences, yet.
Have you ever had a meetcute? What happened?
Again, I don’t date ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
What is one of the best blogging tips you’ve ever heard or given?
Do it for yourself, because if you do it for anyone/thing else, you’ll lose motivation and it’ll become stressful.
Post a picture of your favorite bookish meme.
