I was nominated by the lovely Ellen at The Wanderlust Reader for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award – I think it’s especially fitting because she lives in Europe, so we’re really getting worldly here. J Thanks, Ellen! Sorry it took so long to do.
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
2. Put the award logo on your blog.
3. Answer the ten questions they’ve set you.
4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Nominate ten people.
Here are the ten questions she asked:
1. Favourite reading snack?
Coffee. Does that count? I tend not to eat too much when I’m reading, but if I do, I like pretzels, peanut m&ms, cookies (to dunk in the coffee)… Most of the time though, I don’t eat and read. That’s how accidents happen.
2. Would you rather read first, or movie first?
3. Thoughts on The Fault in Our Stars?
Book or movie? Book – amazing. Movie – amazing. 🙂 Also, sad, sad, sad.
4. TBR this holiday season?
I could link you up to my December TBR (and I did), but I’ll also list my next few reads here: Rereading Linger; reading The Rosie Effect, Atlantia, The Iron Trial, Let It Snow, Every Day. Okay, I might not read all of these, but I probably will. I have two weeks off (minus one day in the middle) off for Christmas/New Years, so I plan on reading all of these.
5. Favourite holiday reads?
I never really had any favorite holiday reads. I have favorite holiday movies (The Family Stone, The Nightmare before Christmas, Rudolph..), but not reads. This year, I’m reading My True Love Gave to Me, which I think will be a staple of every holiday season. I’m also planning on reading Let It Snow.
6. Thoughts on film adaptions?
I have a love/hate relationship with film adaptations. Sometimes they can be amazing (The Perks of Being a Wallflower; TFiOS) or horrible (I won’t give examples, but I’m sure you know what I mean). I love seeing the stories come to life in more than just my head, but man, can they get it wrong sometimes.
7. Top 3 favourite series?
Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Anna and the French Kiss. Haha. I have wide tastes.
8. Contemporary young adult; yay or nay?
Before this year: nay (except a little Sarah Dessen here and there). After this year: yay! I was exposed to Morgan Matson, Stephanie Perkins, Jennifer E. Smith, Adi Alsaid, and more this year, and I’m happily a contemporary YA fan now.
9. How is your 2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge going?
Um. Amazing? I didn’t actually start it until March. I set it for 100 books. I’m currently at 148 and the year isn’t over yet. Woo!
10. Which fictional character would you be for a day?
Could this be any harder? I’m going to go with Blue Sargent. 1. She’s amazing, 2. The raven boys, 3. Cabeswater, 4. Gansey.
I tend to tag the same people over and over for these posts, so 1. I hate doing that because I know they don’t have time for all of them, and 2. I don’t want to tag someone I don’t know quite as well because I don’t know if they’ll do it.
So what I’m saying is, if you want to answer these questions, do it. I had fun answering, and you might too. 🙂 Love you all!
