The Sunshine Bloggers Award

I was nominated by 2 beautiful bloggers for this award: Carrie from A Book Goddess and Caroline from Just Another Bookish Blog. Be sure to check them out, they have amazing blogs!

"The idea of the Sunshine Award is that you nominate bloggers who put a little sunshine in your day, who are positive, creative and inspiring."

  • Answer 11 Questions provided for you.
  • Nominate other bloggers and ask them 11 questions.

Not too hard! Let's go :)

Carrie's Questions:

What book are you most looking forward to in 2016?
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard, the sequel to Red Queen. I'm re-reading that book in preparation for the sequel, I'm so excited!

What's your favourite TV show of all time?
Ooh, that's a hard one. I have a load of favourite TV shows. My favourites are Once Upon A Time, Grey's Anatomy, Vampire Diaries and Supernatural.

Ultimate OTP?
Easy. Adrian and Sydney and Katy and Daemon. Those two are my go-to couples for fangirling and squealing. 

What is your favourite indie book?
I don't really read indie books so I don't have a favourite here...

What is your favourite book genre? Why?
I love fantasy romance as I love reading stories set in fantastical worlds with magic powers that you would never find in real life. Plus romance is a must :P

Which supernatural creature is your favourite?
I'm willing to read about many different supernatural creatures but I guess if I had to choose I'd pick vampires as they're what introduced me to supernatural.

What do you do in your spare time?
I love just relaxing with my friends or going shopping. I don't really have hobbies if you were expecting me to play music or something, haha!

Winter or Autumn?
Winter! Best excuse to cuddle in front of the fire with tea and a new book :D

In a Zombie Apocalypse what would be your game plan? Do you think you'd live long?
Honestly? Probably not very long. I'd just run away screaming trying to prevent those zombies from eating my books. I'd sacrifice myself for them!

How old were you when you discovered your favourite author?
I was about 10 when I found Jacqueline Wilson, my first love.

What snacks do you like?
Nutella on toast with banana. Yum!

Caroline's Questions:

Contemporary or Fantasy books?
I love both, but I think I'd choose fantasy as I love the magical air to them. Noting in fantasy would ever happen in real life.

How did you come up with your theme on your blog?
I was researching loads of blogs coming up with ideas, and I saw one had loads of books as the background and I really liked that idea. The rest had no theme, I just liked the colour and font, haha.

Which type of subscribers do you prefer?
I don't have a favourite, it's whatever is easiest for the person following. People with Wordpress can't follow via google so they could use Bloglovin'.

What was your favourite book this year?
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Completely blown away!

Favourite snack to eat/drink while reading/blogging?
Tea! I'm unashamedly Irish with my love for tea, haha.

Do you do any sports?

What's your favourite stand-alone book?
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. One of my favourite retellings of Cinderella.

What's your favourite childhood fairytale?
Cinderella. I've loved the idea that "a pair of shoes can change your life", and believing in your dreams. Disney's Cinderella is one of my favourite movies.

What band/singer would you love to see live?
My dream came true when I saw Taylor Swift live in June! Best day ever. 

Do you have a lucky number?
I like 7 because I won an Easter Egg when I was little by guessing the correct number in school, lol.

What kinds of non-fiction books draw your attention?
I don't really read non-fiction, so I can't answer this really.

My Questions:

What's your favourite genre?
When did you first start reading?
Where's your favourite place to read?
What's your favourite fairytale retelling?
What's your favourite book-to-movie adaptation?
What's your favourite book quote?
Paperback or ebook/kindle?
How much have you paid for a book?
Do you listen to music while you read?
Have you or would you read graphic novels?
Would you buy a book simply because it had a pretty cover?

I'm going to nominate these people in response:
