ANSWERING THE Q’S:

What’s the strangest bookish habit you have?

I smell every book that I have…all the time…randomly. 🙂

If you could meet any villain who would it be and why?

I don’t know about this one — there are so many awesome villains! But the first that came to mind was The Joker, lol. Even though I think he is extremely creepy, I feel like without the makeup he’d be pretty decent!

Would you travel to your past or your future?

Definitely my past, no matter how ugly it can get. I don’t want to know what the future holds for me…I like surprises (sometimes).

What are some fictional character names you love?

I like the name ‘Kai Awana’ from XODUS by K.J McPike & ‘Arya Stark’ from A Game of Thrones — they both have a nice “ring”, lol.

Do you write notes while you are reading?

Not all the time, but if I want to remember something I’ll leave a little note on my phone.

Do you have any pet hates?

If you mean ‘pet peeves’, I actually have a ton — when people chew really loud, people poking me to get my attention, messy tables, etc.

A favourite hobby that’s not reading?

Painting!! Watercolor, Acrylic…really anything in that medium!

Who’s your biggest fictional crush?

Either Park from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, any male character from Nicholas Spark’s novels, or Silas from the Never, Never trilogy by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher ❤

What’s your favourite season and why?

It used to be spring, but since that’s allergy season, I am going to go with Winter. I love the cold and that’s when Christmas is sooo…

The best advice that was ever given to you?

“You can be a buffalo or you can be a butterfly” — my high school Algebra 2 & Pre-Calculus teacher

What is your favourite genre of music?

Either Pop or Acoustic.

  1. Fadwa @ Word Wonders

Infinity Dreams Award! | #2

Hello & Happy Thursday! I was nominated again for the Infinity Dreams Award by the wonderful Eve @ Eve Messenger! So thank you Eve for thinking of me! 🙂

Rules:

1. Thank and follow the blog that nominated you
2. Tell us 11 facts about yourself
3. Answer the questions that were set for you to answer
4.  Nominate 11 bloggers and set questions for them

11 Facts About Me:

  1. I am currently enrolled as a sophomore in high school.
  2. I live in sunny California. (not so sunny right now)
  3. I prefer standalones over series.
  4. I love each & every one of my followers (you guys are amaaazzzinngg)
  5. I have any obsession with the sky, buying books, eating ice cream, and a bunch of other things.
  6. I am currently learning to drive and I am extremely terrified (I suck at turning soooo badly!)
  7. I don’t have a lot of friends who enjoy reading, so this is where I kind of express the feels the most.
  8. I love tattoos.
  9. I am addicted to purchasing items online.
  10. Netflix is life when I am not blogging, reading, or drawing.
  11. Marvel over DC (sorry DC fans)

Q & A’s:

1.) If you had two weeks and unlimited funds, what would be your dream vacation?

Visiting every bookstore I could find & purchasing as many novels as I could. Haha, jkay, that’s the hoarder talking. Besides doing that, I’d probably just travel a bunch, lol.

2.) What was one of your favorite books as a child?

Hmmm..any of the Nancy Drew novels, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, or Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein.

3.) What was one of your favorite recent reads?

The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler. I’ve had this novel for years & I was crazy to put it off for so long!

4.) What is your dream/life’s ambition?

Oh, I have so many! But I guess one is to definitely become confident with myself & what I can do in the future. I seriously have so many ambitions but this is the one that came into mind first..

5.) What three things would indicate you’ve achieved your dream?

My happiness, confidence, & mindset. Those are the three most important aspects of myself that I want to improve as I get older. And if those are right, then I have not achieved my dream.

6.) What is your favorite board/card/casino game?

I really enjoy playing UNO or Go-Fish with my family, even though sometimes it gets pretty competitive. And I think my favorite board game is either Monopoly or Candy Land.

7.) Would you prefer camping in nature or staying at fine hotel in the city?

Hmm, I actually don’t know. I like nature, but I’ve never been camping (partly because I am scared). On the other hand, I’ve been to so many hotels (maybe not “fine”). However I think I’ll go with a fine hotel in the city because I love cities!!

8.) If you could write like any author, who would it be and why?

Oooh, hard question. I can’t pick one, but if I could combine authors I would choose Colleen Hoover, John Green, Nicholas Sparks, and Jay Asher. I know they are kind of all different genres, but that’s the point! (Sorry, did I break the rules…?) They all have their specialities in their genre — one is humorous, or serious, or romantic, or adventurous…and I love all of those aspects in a novel!

9.) If you could visit any historical time period, which would you choose and why?

The Renaissance! I want to tell Da Vinci  that his works are amazing and appreciated! Oh, and also maybe the 1800’s when Van Gogh was alive, lol.

10.) Romance or Adventure?

I think I am going to go with Romance because I have a lot more Romance novels. But Adventure is also pretty awesome…

11.) What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Mint chocolate chip or rocky road!!


And now for the nominations! I am going to try and tag people that are new followers of mine — welcome, guys! 🙂
