I’ve already done this tag but the lovely Anne @ The Reading Life tagged me in it and Charvi @ Not Just Fiction also tagged me. I decided to just merge both sets of questions into the one post. I hope you enjoy my lovelies. (also this is soooo late, I’m so so sorry!)

List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog
Which book to movie adaptation did you hate the most?
Oooo such a good question. I think it’s got to be either The Vampire Academy or City of Bones. I mean…both were shockingly bad. As movies go they’re decent but as adaptations go not the best ones – particularly City of Bones.
What book character superpower do you want (you can only chose one)?
Erm…*brain short circuits* I think I’d want to be a shifter (not a werewolf!) A shape shifter though, I’d want to be one of them. I was always sort of obsessed with shifters and vampires.
Which book character would you want to be your husband/wife (you can only chose one)?
Just one? Ok let’s see *consults never ending list* nope I can’t pick there’s too many here. To be fair I don’t think I’d actually want to marry any of them, I’d rather be able to play cupid with them *cackles* pairing them off with one another – oh the fun you could have. (if I had to pick it’s probably either Jem Carstairs or Adrian Ivashkov.)
Would you rather have the ability to erase your memories of books as you wish so you can repeatedly re-read them, or the ability to turn back the clock when you bought a book you’re super disappointed in?
Interesting. I believe that even the books that disappointed us taught us something, whether we realise it or not. They all go towards shaping us, as for erasing my memories. No need, I reread books anyway for the fun of it because it’s like I’m coming home. So…I don’t know. I suppose turn the clock back.
If you can only read one genre for the rest of your life what would it be?
Oh wow I actually chose a genre *laughs hysterically* fun fact, paranormal is one of two genres I can read in both YA and Adult meaning I won’t run out of reading material anytime soon. I also just have a deep unconditional love for this genre, it brought me into the YA world and I just love everything about it.
If you can only enter the book world (of one book) what would it be?
*stares at the question*
I don’t know! I love so many worlds, and most of the ones I’d want to go to are highly dangerous, with demons rampaging around. Shadowhunter world? We’ll go with that one shall we.
If you can have any one character always by your side, who would it be and why?
Merit from Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill. She’s got a great sense of humor and is sarcastic (like me!) She loves food which is always good, she’s a vampire and a great fighter. So it’d be great.
What according to you is the most important part of a novel or book that draws you in?
That’s a tough one. I think personally it’s down to the writing and pace of the book. Slow books tend to get me into a deep session of procrastinating. So as long as the book is fairly quick paced, but well written, the characters are all fleshed out and aren’t morons. Who are only there for the main character to look good; I’m down.
Name a book villain that you found yourself sympathizing with and why?
Oh geez villains eh? I think it’s probably gonna be Sebastian from The Mortal Instruments series. Even though he was a goddamn nasty piece of work, you could understand why, with a father like Valentine.
If your life was turned into a book what would it be titled?
Hahaha here’s a selection of titles since I have no idea which ones I prefer.
- Hermits Life
- Introvert Faces World and People
- Bookworm Goes To the Bookshop (AGAIN)
Which was the first book or series that had you fangirl and discover a fandom?
Oooo erm I think it was The Mortal Instruments. Or perhaps Twilight. I don’t know to be honest, I don’t actively participate in book fandoms haha. I do take part in band fandoms though.
Name a few books or series you wish you had read when you were younger
Percy Jackson series. I’ve read the first book now and omg, I want to smack my younger self haha. I also wish I’d finished the Slated trilogy by Terri Terry all those years ago when I started. Alas I have not and still need to haha.
What is/are your go to book(s) for when you are feeling down?
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. OR I’ll go to Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill. It depends which I can readily reach haha.
Which recent book gave you a serious hangover?
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover – such a good book!
Which fictional character’s name do you want to steal and rename yourself and why?
I don’t. I like my name thank you haha, if I had to choose though; probably Tessa from The Infernal Devices. Not her full name which is Theresa, just Tessa xD I just like the name I guess, it’s also not a common now nowadays.
Which book brought a significant change in your life and how?
Honestly, no clue. I’ve read so many, forgotten so many, vaguely remember some and have so many more to read. I think a lot of the books I’ve read change me a little bit but none really spring to mind that have significantly changed my life.
Which fantasy or fictional creature would you want to have as a pet?
A dragon. I mean I am a dragon, cause erm bookdragons and all that jazz, but yeah, I just like dragons. Ideally I want Toothless…if you don’t know who Toothless is google Toothless the dragon or something, you can thank me later. *winks*
- If you could read any series/book again, like it was the first time you were reading it, which series/book would you choose?
- Current song on replay?
- Are you bilingual? If no, do you wish you were? (I took French and German at school, I’d been doing French since Primary school though but I actually found German a lot easier to pick it and remember. I dropped French early in year 11 cause the coursework of two languages, history and art was too much wish I could pick languages up easier though.)
- Favourite 3 posts of yours you’ve done and why?
- How long have you been blogging and do you intend to ever quit forever?
- Thoughts on book to movie adaptions? (e.g do you enjoy them? or do you usually find they don’t meet your expectations after reading the book?)
- If you could be a season which season would you want to be? (I’d be Winter, love the cold and also the rain here in England *laughs*)
- Aside from travelling in books, have you ever traveled? If so where, if not do you want to and where do you want to go?
- Odd or even numbers?
- Do you DNF books?
- A popular ship everyone seems to ship in a series, that you just weren’t on aboard with?
If I tagged you don’t HAVE to do this, obviously. But I’d love it if you would at some point, no matter how long it takes you I’ll still be ready to read your answers. Everyone tagged, is also in the spreadsheet I’m working on, I used a random number generator and these are the blogs that corresponded with the number. Much love for all of you guys, some of you I know well, others I’m sure I’ll get to know you better soon 🙂

Wooo I’m honestly so sorry it’s taken this long to finally get these two done. You know the hilarious news, cause I’m such an excellent procrastinator. I have another round of The Sunshine Blogger Award heading your way next week hopefully. Next round all the blogs that get tagged again, will be from the spreadsheet only they’re going to be on Blogger or self hosted blogs ❤
