Hello everyone! Today is a very special day, for I don’t have any homework in need of completion, and the lovely Lala nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Yay! Laura (or Lala) is so great, and I highly recommend you check out her blog by clicking here.
- Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you
- Nominate some bloggers who put sunshine in your day
- Write 11 questions for them to answer
1. If there was a book of your life, would you read the ending? Why?
Personally, I wouldn’t read any of the book if I could help it, firstly because what if I bought it and it was really short? And also because knowing what’s about to happen would take all of the fun out of life! I’m not saying, though, that someone shouldn’t write a book about my life when I pass, because that would be pretty cool.
2. How many books do you have? (in total–not including eBooks)
This is my book shelf – pardon the terrible quality! (It’s double layered, by the way, so as to save space.) eBooks are my primary reading platform, so a lot of my books are in that format. However, I still have a lot of physical books. 128 to be exact. They are quite dated, though, the majority being from my childhood.
3. If you were a villain from your favourite book, who would you be?
My favourite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower, meaning I, as a villain, would be depression, PTSD, and social anxiety. (Or so people say – it’s never confirmed what mental conditions Charlie lives with.) I can’t imagine that being at all fun.
My second choice would be Sebastian (Jonathan) Morgernstern. I adore Sebastian as a villain, for he is so complex, and he continuously seems to love his life – despite all the wrong he experienced at a younger age – meaning it wouldn’t be so bad to be him.
4. If you had the opportunity to change the ending of any book, which would it be, and how would you change it?
This took a bit of thinking, but I finally decided on Ignite Me, the 3rd book in the Shatter me series, by Tahereh Mafi. Frankly, I would have put more information in on the life after the books. Like an epilogue, I feel as though Mafi could have really just humoured the books fans, and created a 10-years-later thing, just to wrap things up. A bit like what Suzanne Collins did for Mockingjay.
5. If you could bring back one dead fictional character, who would it be?
FINNICK ODAIR. This is such an irrelevant death – couldn’t Collins let us have a little bit of happiness? I would say Prim, too, because she died unnecessarily, btu she always annoyed me. And I would say Rue, but if Rue hadn’t died, Katniss would have, and the series would have ended at book 1.
6. Do you like poetry? Why?
I love poetry! It’s such a quick and fun way to share one’s emotions. I love how much freedom one can have with poetry, and how each poem differs from the next, even if they portray the same ideas.
7. Do you like classical music? Why?
I’ve never really listened to it before. Intently, anyway. A lot of people say it’s great for relaxation, and I would like to broaden my musical horizons, so I’ll definitely have to get round to it.
8. 10 pet peeves in fictional romance.
- Love at first sight.
- Instant romance/Insta-romance.
- Love squares. Love triangles are OK. Love squares are too far.
- Both parties are beautiful.
- The unpopular girl gets the popular boy or vice versa.
- “I can/I’ll be the one to change him/her.”
- Abandoning friendships for possible love interests.
- “I hate you. Oh wait, now I love you!”
- Perfect relationships.
9. Bookmarks, or doggy ears?
Bookmarks! Never doggy ear my books!
10. Tell at least one embarrassing moment you had to go through.
Age: 5. Location: Ballet class. Circumstances: First day in a new class, surrounded by 7-year-olds, stood on the back row. I was stood with my arm in the air, desperately in need of a toilet to pee in. Unfortunately for me, my dance teacher couldn’t spot 5-year-old me, drowned in a crowd of 7-year-olds, at the back of the class. Long story short, I wet myself. A lot. I got the teacher’s attention then.
11. What is the most influential book you have ever read?
We are all a work in progress, and that is definitely OK. Thank you Connor Franta for this beautiful book.
You all make my sun shine a little brighter.
