thank you so so so much to a darling little cupcake, dezzy, for nominating me in this super fun and cute award. if you don’t already follow her, you’re missing out on the most awesome posts, so you should rectify that RIGHT NOW.
i’m also like 6 months late for this but im trying
What’s your favorite type of blog post to write, and why?
Personally, I find there’s something really gratifying about writing wrap ups. maybe its bc I get to see everything i accomplished throughout the month or maybe not but I really enjoy writing them (even tho theyre exhausting as hell)
oh and discussion posts are always fun to write bc of the comments and discussions you can have with other bloggers but its rough to be expressive and eloquent for more than 3 sentences
Do you usually reread books?
Why or why not?
if you asked me this last year, it would have been a hard no.
the idea of spending time on books you already read used to stress me out bc the whole “IMAGINE ALL THE NEW BOOKS I COULD DISCOVER” but after my schedule got really busy in the beginning of this year, i found that i craved comfort reads
so I ended up rereading A LOT and now i just dabble in it rereads every once in a while bc i do love to revisit my favs (see: illuminae files)
What’s a book that made you an emotional wreck and/or broke your heart?
wow, im gonna have to make a looonngggg list for this. im not sure what level of disaster I have to reach in order to enjoy and cherish books that turn me into an emotional wreck, but if i gotta, my top 5 books (of more recent reads) would be:
- on the jellicoe road
- the nightingale
- kingdom of ash
- a man called ove
- the book thief
(read them and cry with me)
What’s a book that brought you the utmost joy (you coulnd’t stop smiling after reading it)?
this is SUCH a cute question
there are a lot of adorable books that make me feel like I swallowed a ton of skittles and own a unicorn (yes I happen to love sappy contemporaries) and the first author that comes to mind is basically anything Emma Mills writes
her books make you feel so content and satisfied and happy and soft and i enjoy books that offer some deep, emotional backstory along with the cute parts
Standalone books or book series?
I CANT choose!!!
so on one hand, I LOVE a good standalone that can create a world, characters, an in-depth plot, and a satisfying ending all within a few hundred pages.
but on the other hand, I adore series that take time and build complex characters and conflicts and you get to see how the characters grow over time
If you could unread a book, what would it be and why?
uhhhh, total shade, most definitely im going to answer the pisces.
I guess this is what I get for not reading blurbs before picking up a book but it was NOTHING I was expecting
not only was the plot all over the place, the main character selfish and childish, but,,,,,,i was listening to it on audiobook and there was this (REALLY gross) scene that I was listening to while eating breakfast and I gaged
How has your blogging style and writing voice changed since you first started blogging?
honestly I haven’t been blogging for //that// long. its been like a year and a half (including my random 5 month ghosting sessions) and the only thing I can really say that I changed from the time I started till now would be my writing voice
I think I might have been more ‘happy and up-beat’ in my former posts (im too scared to check tbh) and now I literally just write off the top of my head like this is just how I speak irl
How have your reading tastes changed ever since you started blogging?
I remember when I started blogging I was ready to read EACH and EVERY book to exist on the face of earth
and now,,,,I’ve come to the realization that if a book doesn’t sound like im going to like it, chances are,,,,,,i’m not going to like it (this is the picky, critical, annoying side of me)
and im definitely more hesitant to start series now, too. the amount of series that I’ve started and never completed is A LOT, so I tend to only commit to books that are by my favourite authors or sound really interesting
How did you discover your favorite author and/or favorite books?
this is such a great question.
i honestly don’t even recall how i found my favourite authors. right now, i discover most of my favourite books through recommendations from my blogger/reviewer friends (who share similar tastes with me)
and ofc im always trying to keep up with the hyped books, and those can sometimes be really awesome
What’s your favorite movie adaptation?
TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE
I literally never watch movies, I find them so long and throughout the movie i’ll literally be like ‘when is this over I need to read’
however comma TATBILB was one of the first movies (in a while) that I REWATCHED bc I just loved it sm like its so cute and the acting is so good and ahdkfakjfh
List three favorite books and one song you associate with each of them!
oh man, can i pass on this one. I don’t really listen to English songs (i know, who am i?) all that much and I most definitely don’t listen to them while i’m reading (which is all the time) bc they distract me
so, it’s either songs in a different language or just background noise for me :p
are y’all still here??? wow, that was a lot to go through.
i’m going to be a rebel and not tag anyone bc well, I don’t know who was already awarded and I don’t want anyone to feel pressured and 😭😭😭
