The Sunshine Blogger Award

The lovely Ash @ wildheartreads has tagged me to this and I’m so honored! Also look at me, I’m actually doing a tag and not postponing it until it’s 347832 months later and at that point it doesn’t even make sense to post it anymore and- well my point is that I’m doing this now so y’all can be proud of me (and sorry to everyone who has tagged me and never heard back from me lmao – Laura this one goes to you).

I actually did this same tag a looooooong time ago I believe but the questions are different so it’s all good!

How Does it Work?

  1. Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog.

Ash’ questions

  1. If your favourite book was adapted would you prefer it as a film or TV series?

    My favorite book series is Captive Prince and a film (or even three) wouldn’t do it justice, so I’d have to go with TV series! It would make much more sense and if done right it would be the best way to convey the same exact slow burn vibe that the books have.

  2. What would your dream reading nook look like?

    You know those couches shaped like an L? I love the corner part because I can sit however I want and stretch my legs all the way and I feel “safe” I guess.

  3. Paperbacks or Hardcovers?

    Ebooks actually gsdhlgsgh but I guess hardcovers because they look nicer and you don’t have to hold the book open the whole time, you can just put them on a surface and keep reading.

  4. Do you listen to music when you read or do you need silence?

    I very rarely listen to music when I read, mostly I just don’t think about it and start reading in silence. If someone else is listening to music I can read but it can’t be something with a lot of lyrics if that makes sense, and it also can’t be something that I already know because if I know the lyrics and music I just start humming along and get distracted from my book.

  5. Favourite meme that describes you reading?

    You get the idea

  6. Favourite genre?

    It used to be fantasy but now I see that I can’t read only fantasy anymore, I also need to read some contemporary stuff sometimes, so I have no idea. But I’ll just go with YA in general I guess.

  7. Do you fancast characters or do you prefer to let your imagination do the work?

    Neither, I don’t really see faces in my head when I read so I can’t fancast.

  8. Favourite trope/least favourite?

    Favorite romance trope: enemies to lovers
    Least favorite generic trope: dead queer people for the sake of furthering straight people’s narrative

  9. What fictional world would you love to visit?

    Earlier I would have said the Harry Potter one but since it’s apparently impossible to be a queer person there I’d rather go visit the Always Human world so I could try different mods for different hairstyles and looks and also knowledge mods would be super cool.

  10. What book surprised you the most (good or bad)?

    I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into when I started The Darkest Part of the Forest and I guess I thought it would all take place in a faerie world but it actually mostly takes place in the real world but then again nothing about it feels like our world because it’s all so magical and the writing is perfect to give you this sort of magical vibe. The romances also surprised me a lot in a very positive way.

  11. What was your last 5 star read?

    That would be At the Edge of the Universe (my review)! I loved it and it made me fall in love with SDH, now I really need to check out all his books.


My questions!

  1. What was your favorite book as a child?
  2. Do you get reading slumps? How do you get out of them?
  3. What’s the one book or series that made you fall in love with reading?
  4. What are your thoughts on ebooks?
  5. Are you more of a fantasy or a contemporary person?
  6. Who’s your all time favorite author?
  7. Do you read audiobooks? Why or why not?
  8. First person or third person?
  9. Plot or characters?
  10. Heroes or antiheroes?
  11. Single point of view or double/multiple POV?

      • I actually agree a lot with your answers, especially about ebooks, tropes and fancasting! I NEVER see faces in my head and many of my friends find it so weird but I just don’t? Ever? 🙈

        • Omg me neither! Idk it’s just how my mind works I guess! I just imagine characters in my head by their described features, so I’ll see a blonde head and pale skin, or dark skin brown hair and glasses, idk, stuff like that. But never faces!

        • People who shit on ebooks usually come from a place of privilege, they don’t get that not everyone can afford to buy so many physical books, especially when it comes to new releases and stuff. Besides, I just find it more comfortable and convenient to read ebooks, plus I get a lot of reading time on trains etc. Audiobooks are great too! A few weeks ago some booktuber made a video on why reading audiobooks isn’t real reading and I never rolled my eyes so fast

  2. “ebooks actually”
    oh same. If ebooks didn’t exist I’d have to read translated books – and as publishing houses here love to translate only the first/first two books in a series and not the others, that would be a problem.
    And thanks for tagging me!

  4. thank you for tagging me, lovely!! 😘 and oh my god THE SHADEEEE I mean I guess it’d be possible to be a queer person in the Harry Potter world if your existence as a queer person profited someone else 🙃 also I’m halfway through Always Human and I’m obsessed
