So today I have a lovely tag to do, for which I have been tagged by Ellyn from allonsythornraxx to do the Sunshine Blogger Award tag. It’s such an honour that she thought of me, so please go check out her blog!



  • Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog.


1. What’s been your favorite read of 2018 so far?

I recently finished Some Kind of Happiness, which is now on my list of favorite books! There will be a review to come, but it was the perfect mix of all the things I love.

2. Shout out to the last person you followed, and the last person who followed you!

The last person who followed me was Daisy Gal @DG Book Blog

And the last person who I followed was Annie from A Booknerd Travels

3. Do you have any readathon plans this month/ year?

I don’t really plan ahead, but I might be doing a readathon upcoming Saturday!

4. Do you have any weird obsessions?

I don’t know if I have necessarily weird obsessions, but I am really obsessed with Disney and musicals (oh and books of course).

5. What are your top 5 anticipated 2018 releases?

  1. The first book in the new Miss Peregrine trilogy written by the great king Ransom Riggs!
  2. All of the debut novels I named in my recent post
  3. Beneath the Sugar Sky (#3 in Wayward Children) by Seanan McGuire
  4. Obsidio (#3 in The Illuminae files) by Amy Kaufman
  5. Leah on the offbeat by Becky Albertalli

6. What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading A LOT of books at the same time, I have been getting close to a reading slump so I keep picking up another book to read. However, I am liking 5 of the 7 current reads! If you want to keep completely up to date on my current reads than I encourage you to add me on Goodreads.

7. What were your top 3 favorite reads of 2017?

  1. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
  2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  3. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

(this was so hard! I’ve read so many amazing books in 2017, so it is really hard to choose)

8. Do you read and eat at the same time?

I hardly ever do that, because I am too scared that I will spill anything on my books! I do drink tea while reading, and sometimes I sneak in a little biscuit while reading.

9. Have you ever considered being a part of Booktube?

I think I am too awkward to film myself, plus I am not (yet) confident enough in speaking English.

10. What bookish world would you most like to travel to?

Neverland, Wonderland, and Narnia. And NO you can’t possibly make me choose!

11. What is your favorite blog post to read? & What is your favorite to write?

I only just started out with my blog, but so far I love to read posts filled with random thoughts or tips. They really show the personality of the writer and I learn a lot while reading them! I personally really love to write reviews.

  1. I just discovered myself tagged here (if you only link to my page and not to a post I don’t get a notification)! I really like getting to know you better by reading your answers. So many current reads though! I hope one of them makes you want to keep on reading. I also love your rec of A Monster Calls! Great questions you’re asking as well, although 5 genres.. I think I only have 2 or 3 :-). Thank you for including me!

  2. Congrats on the award! I’m also reading The Art of Escaping! I’m about 75% through it and it’s going ok for me, I guess. I was hoping for something a bit different, I think. But I should be finished and have a review up soon! I hope you’re enjoying it.
