7 Random Facts About Me:

1) I can’t get enough of chocolate and cakes and pastries. Oh and ice cream! Every day I have to have something sweet otherwise I will be very grumpy! (Not even kidding I have sweet related hangry outbursts all the time haha)

2) Unlike most bookstagrammers and book bloggers I do not have a book buying problem. I’m pretty good at only buying one or two books at a time and then reading them. The only exception is the library where I’ll get out 8 books and return half of them unread (whoops).

3) Halloween and Autumn make September, October and November my favourite months of the year. I just love being able to wear cosy jumpers and coats. And it rains more often so I don’t feel guilty about staying inside reading. And I love that it gets darker earlier. Oh and horror films are more fun at this time of the year!

4) I annoy everyone I’m out with whenever I go. Not for a really terrible reason though haha. It’s because I like taking hundreds of photos of everything so I’ll slow the whole day down. I’ll come back from a simple walk on the beach with hundreds of photos. I guess I should make an instagram or something for them?

5) I don’t wear much make up. Just mascara and a bit of concealer to cover any spots. I definitely do not get this trend for putting highlighter, blusher AND bronzer all on your cheeks?!

6) My favourite Disney films are Peter Pan and Beauty and the Beast. I’ve watched them both more times than I can count and look for any books or movies that “retell” either story. I think the tv show Once Upon A Time has a Peter Pan and Hook storyline right? I need to get on that show already!

7) Out of all the social media sites I use Instagram is easily the most fun for me! For some reason it’s a really positive place and I rarely see nasty arguments or offensive comments. Amongst the book community anyway. Not sure what goes on in the wider Instagram world!

And finally I must pass on this award!

The Sunshine Blogger Award Tag

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor sunshine blogger award

I was nominated to do this tag by the lovely Lia from Imaginary Places On Paper (so thank you Lia!). She came up with the following fun and interesting questions:

1) Why Did You Start Blogging?

Mainly because I wanted somewhere I could post my thoughts on books and other stuff I enjoy. I do have an Instagram but it’s much nicer to create a whole post here with pictures. And I know I haven’t been on here long  (I only started at the end of August) but so far I’m really enjoying it!

2) Do You Have A Favourite Book And What Is It?

I’m just going to leave this photo here…


3) What Superpower Would You Want To Have?

I’m pretty sure I have answered a similar question to this on my blog already but I always pick invisibility. Just because if I was invisible I could go ANYWHERE! I’d sneak into concerts and onto aeroplanes and I’d look round the closed to the public areas of castles and museums and libraries.

4) If You Were A Type Of Fruit What Would You Be?

I laughed out loud at this question! But I actually don’t like fruit. Something about the smell/taste/texture all put me off for some reason. But I do love the look of pineapples (everyone should stop what they’re doing right now and google “pineapple field”) so I guess they’re the fruit I’d be.

5) What Is Top Of Your Bucket List?

Rome! And especially the Colosseum.

6) What’s Your Favourite Quote?

Oh dear I have so many favourite quotes! How am I supposed to choose only one?! But I guess J.R.R.Tolkien’s “Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost” is one that has always stuck with me.

7) What’s The Last Movie You Saw And Loved?

Hmm probably 10 Cloverfield Lane. Horror is my favourite genre and this one was so creepy and suspenseful. I really had no clue what was going on and I love it when the outcome isn’t obvious. 10/10 would recommend!

8) Are You An Introvert, Ambivert Or Extravert?

Oh I’m an ambivert for sure. But I’m definitely more at home, at home though haha.

9) Where Do You Buy Most Of Your Books?

Mostly charity shops. Not only can you find brand new books for less than a couple pounds but it’s also more fun! I love rummaging through the shelves and not knowing what I’ll find.

10) What Is The Scariest Thing In The World To You?

Losing any of the people I love or having them suffer in any way. I’m not afraid of anything else. Not heights or snakes or creeps. Just my nearest and dearest being hurt.

11) Do You Have A Secret Talent?

Now that I think about it I don’t think I do! Does sitting on my bed all night watching movies or reading (and not moving) count as a talent?! HAhaha…

So there’s my answers. If you read this far, thanks! I won’t tag anyone but if you’d like to be tagged feel free to answer these same questions! Or let me know some of your answers in the comments below. I’d be especially interested in what the scariest thing in the world is to you (it is nearly Halloween after all).
