Do you prefer Bookstagram or Book Twitter? Share your social links.
Ooof, this a hard one right out of the gate! I love Bookstagram because I love looking at beautiful photos, but I feel I’m not the greatest at taking photos. Book Twitter on the other hand I find I’m good at because I can just talk books without the fancy photos… so Book Twitter.
Do you listen to music while reading? Or have you a favourite song that you associate with a particular book?
I don’t listen to music because that is distracting… but I’l listen to a podcast 🙄don’t ask how that works out. Lately I haven’t really wanted to listen to anything while reading, which is something completely new to me.
I also don’t have a song that I associate with any particular book… I sound lame. 😂
What would you like to be remembered for?
Wow man, I don’t know… being funny?
Who is your favourite musician/band/singer?
The Maine ❤️
This song is my anthem to 2020.
Who or what are you most grateful for in life?
This is a hella deep question! I’m just going to say that I’m grateful for the people who are in my life at current because they are some of the best people 💞
What is your favourite book to film adaptation?
Good question! I haven’t the slightest idea… after pondering this for a while (the whole weekend) I truly love the Harry Potter movies… but that is so clichéd that I’m not even counting that as an answer.
My true answer would be recently Love, Simon. I LOVED that movie! It was just as good as the book if you ask me… and you were asking 😜
What are your hopes for your blog in the next year?
Some of my hopes are to redesign the blog a little, and to gain some more friends! 🙂
You are going away on a relaxing holiday for a week. Where would you go and what five books would you bring with you to re-read?
My first thought when I read “relaxing holiday” would be a beach… I wouldn’t mind doing an all-inclusive again somewhere south because I got 3 books read and it was just so peaceful. But now that you’re asking me what 5 books I would re-read… man I have NO idea!
I do know I’d maybe re-read The Picture of Dorian Gray (maybe)! What I’ve always taken with me on vacation is a contemporary because they are always so light and fluffy and fun to read… so out of the 5 books I’d say at least 2 (maybe even 3) would be contemporary reads… do I have to list titles?
Ps. I Like You by: Kasie West
Emergency Contact by: Mary H.K. Choi
The Unexpected Everything by: Morgan Matson
Maybe I’ll even throw in some mystery/thrillers! I read The Chalk Man on vacation last year… SO good! (But you all already knew that)
It’s nice to be important but it’s important to be nice. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
Has ever? Like my whole life? Even after reflecting on this question, I still don’t know what the nicest thing someone has done for me… people do nice things for me all the time… this girl at work who I barely know, I see her for less than 5 minutes every day when getting off the bus together and walking into the building; one day it was raining and she held her umbrella over my head for me… like she didn’t need to do that, but it was so nice of her!
So trying to name the nicest thing is so hard! Can we just go with this story because I really like it? 🙂
How many books have you read so far this year?
At this point, one, haha! But I was tagged in 2019, so I will say that in 2019 I was able to read 99 books!
I’m going to use some of the same questions as the one’s Emer asked me because I liked them:
- How many books do you want to read this year?
- What’s one thing you are planning to leave behind in 2019?
- What’s something you’d like to do/or gain in 2020?
- It’s nice to be important but it’s important to be nice. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
- What are your hopes for your blog in the next year?
- Who or what are you most grateful for in life?
- Who is your favourite musician/band/singer?
- What would you like to be remembered for?
- Do you prefer Bookstagram or Book Twitter? Share your social links.
- Random question: do you have a specific mug for specific beverages? Ex. a mug only for coffee, a mug only for tea, etc.? (I can’t be the only one!)
