Hey guys and Merry Christmas (*coughs* Capitalism)! I figured because it’s Christmas and because Ally just tagged me, I would do the Mystery Blogger award today!

Thank you so much to Ally @ AllyWritesThings for tagging me, you definitely lifted my spirits since I’m 101% sick at the moment and I pretty much slept for all of Christmas day!

THREE THINGS ABOUT ME

1 I believe that The Princess Bride is one of the best movies in existence and I will never be convinced otherwise.

2 I think the place Neverland is really interesting and I would love to be able to (over)analyse the story, Peter Pan, one day.

3 My last fact, according to my brother, is that I suck. Oh, what a joy it is to have younger siblings.

tag_thequestions

1 If you had a million dollars, what would you spend it on?

Honestly, I’d either let it sit in the bank (aka. I’d let my mum use it at her leisure) or I’d use it to get a head start on my Uni loans.

2 What hyped book, do you hate/dislike?

I don’t hate it, but I wasn’t overly fond of Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody. But, more recently I disliked To Kill A Kindom and Dead Girl Gang.

3 What is your worst and best trait?

Worst – I’m going to go with my pride??? I can hold a grudge like a very angry pro.

Best – I’m loyal to a point. Like, I said, I’m prideful so if you cross me or someone I’m loyal to, we’re done, loyalty badge revoked.

4 What is the most interesting thing you’ve read this week?

Uhhh, I just started reading Legendary by Stephanie Garber and I’m really enjoying that?? So far, it’s pretty different to book 1, but it’s still got that great Stephanie Garber Caraval vibe.

5 If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

I think they would assume I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I’m a stickler for rules and I always have been. In fact, story time! I have only ever had to leave the cinema once, and it was when I was a lot younger and I was seeing the live action version of The Cat of The Hat with my mother. And the movie got to the point where the cat is screwing everything up and breaking all the rules and jumping on couches and such and long story short, I was so upset that the kids were breaking rules that I had to leave the cinema, and to this day I still feel uncomfortable watching that movie.

Today I have been spoilt again by Rebecca over @ BookishlyRebecca. She nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award back in May but my blogging schedule has been so packed that I have only been able to get to it now, whoops.

So without further ado let’s get into the tag!

THREE THINGS ABOUT ME

1 I am currently snacking on a bowl of frozen strawberries, banana and chia seeds with a dash of greek yoghurt. It’s my go-to snack and I definitely recommend it!

2 I prefer audiobooks to physical books, but am slowly starting to love e-books too!

3 So far this year I have managed to read at least one 2018 release every month and I know that’s not a big accomplishment for everyone, but I’m still pretty chuffed with myself.

1 WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SONG RIGHT NOW?

Okay so I’m writing this back in May but my current favourite song would have to be either Proud of Your Boy from the Aladdin Broadway Musical soundtrack or The Middle by Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey.

2 AT WHAT POINT DO YOU DECIDE HOW MANY STARS YOU GIVE A BOOK?

I think that while I’m reading the actual book I have a pretty clear idea of what it will end up being, but with some books, I will have to wait a few days and then rate it. But, I mean ratings change and sometimes we go back a year later and change something from a 5 to a 2, so it’s an ongoing and evolving process I guess.

3 WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE BLOGGERS?

4 WHAT BOOKS DO YOU WISH WOULD BE ADAPTED?

I think I’ve written a blog post about this but I would really love to see an Alex Rider tv show and I would really love to see an animated mini-series based on the I Hate Fairyland comic series because that series is one of my absolute favourites!

5 DO YOU LIKE ED SHEERAN?

Yes! He’s one of my favourites, I know that one of his main criticisms is that all of his songs sound the same because his voice doesn’t change much when he sings, but his lyrics are amazing so I’m not even mad. Also, I recommend Niall Horan’s album if you like Ed Sheeran’s music.

Facts About Me

1. I hate baking; I can cook dinner no problem (so long as no one is in the house) but if you ask me to bake you something I will literally make you eat the rolling pin.

2. I always carry a book with me, whether it be physically, ebook or audio. You never know when you’ll need a book!

3. I prefer savoury over sweet. I’d rather a scone over chocolate any day.

Questions

What is a book you love that isn’t your favourite book?

I like this question, it shouldn’t seem hard but it is. The first book that comes to mind is Yes Please by Amy Poehler. I’ve read this twice, the first time I read this I absolutely loved it, in fact it’s what gave me the push to watch Parks and Rec. However, the second time around I didn’t enjoy it as much, which isn’t to say it wasn’t as fun as it was the first time.

What is your favourite food and how often do you eat it?

I’m boring as heck so my favourite food is pesto pasta (with spinach and tomatoes because I’m no savage). I don’t eat it too often because pasta isn’t actually that healthy a meal but I probably eat it once a month.

What is/was you favourite subject at school/uni?

My favourite subject is Ancient History (I’m in year 12), it’s taught by my favourite teachers and is one of the few classes that doesn’t make me fall asleep.

How many books are in your bookcase?

I own roughly 245 books, excluding the books on my shelves that belong to my brother. I only own 2 book shelves (they’re all I can fit in my room 😅). I used to buy books at any chance I got but over the past few years I’ve sort of stopped, I’m more of a library reader now.

What is an overhyped book that you cannot stand?

Oh boy, the answers to this question are endless.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)FangirlA Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1)

I don’t want to talk about them, they make me mad.
