Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  • Put the award logo on your blog.
  • Answer the questions the tagger has given you.
  • Nominate ten other bloggers.
  • Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.

QUESTIONS

1. Which fictional animal/pet would you bring to life? (ex: Chainsaw from The Raven Cycle, Hedwig from Harry Potter)

I’d actually go with Chainsaw from The Raven Cycle! I’ve mentioned this before, but I love birds, but I like corvids most of all, because they’re really intelligent.

Believe me, I know exactly how sad that sounds haha!

2. If you could steal any fictional character’s life, who would it be?

I actually struggled with this because I feel like I usually read about people in really awful situations haha! Maybe Sophie in Howl’s Moving Castle, because I feel like going anywhere or doing anything with Howl would be nothing but entertaining.

3. What’s your favorite book-to-movie adaptation?

Probably The Hunger Games films, I’ve always been really impressed by them. They managed to expand the world, because it’s not strictly from Katniss’ perspective, and I thought they did it really well. I also like that it gives that added layer of you being a spectator to the Games, especially in the first film, because you get to be both in and outside the arena.

4. What fairy-tale retelling would you be interested in reading? (For example, I’m really into retellings of The 12 Dancing Princesses!)

I kind of love Red Riding Hood retellings, more specifically ones in the vein of Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chambermoreso than things like Marissa Meyer’s Scarlet

5. What’s your go-to snack when reading?

I have a real thing for sweet & salt popcorn, so it’s probably that. As a plus, it’s probably the least messy of snacks, so I don’t have to worry about getting my grubby fingers all over my books.

6. Who are some of your favorite bands/artists?

know they’ve split up now, but My Chemical Romance will always be my faves.  I also love Fall Out Boy and Panic! At the Disco…and I’m realising that this makes it sound like I just stopped listening to new music in 2007…

7. Would you rather only be able to buy 1 book a month OR have unlimited access to borrowing books from the library?

Probably one book a month, because my TBR pile is big enough as it is, and only being able to get one new book would help me actually cut into it. I’d be way too tempted by the library.

8. Would you rather find one place to settle in for the rest of your life OR move around every 2 years?

Settle. I think? I’d probably end up feeling a bit lonely if I moved around all the time. Plus, moving is hard work and I’m lazy.

9. Do you prefer musicals or plays?

Musicals! I haven’t been to see too many plays, so I don’t really have much of a comparison to go on, but I so really love musicals.

10. Who is your ultimate fictional crush?

It’s been years, but I’m pretty sure I fancy Sirius Black just as much as I did the first time around haha!


MY QUESTIONS

  1. Do you prefer to marathon a series, or read the books as they come out?
  2. What’s the most inspiring movie you’ve seen/book you’ve read?
  3. What’s your favourite genre? (Books or films!)
  4. What’s your least favourite genre? (again, books or films!)
  5. Have you ever put yourself on a book buying ban? If so, how did it go?
  6. Paperback books or hardback books?
  7. What’s your pet peeve?
  8. What’s your favourite Disney movie?
  9. What are some of your favourite albums?
  10. How would you spend your perfect rainy day?

Have fun! 🙂

  1. There’s a different award called Siblinghood of the World Bloggers, which was apparently inspired by this one, so now I’m confused. 😂
    Oh, eating popcorn while reading is interesting! I always think of going to the movies when I see popcorn, not of books. 😛

  2. Haha I’d definitely choose to be Sophie for the exact same reason. Howl ❤
    It's also really interesting that you liked The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter. I couldn't get into it at all.

    1. Oh, that’s interesting! It was one of my assigned books back when I was doing my A Levels, so I don’t think I would ever have picked it up of my own volition. I think at the time I’d not really read anything like it before.

      1. Ohh, I see! Did you have to compare it to any other texts? (If your A Levels were anything like mine, you’d have to write a comparative essay. I read it when I was 13 ish? I remember in year 6 we got to analyse the movie, and that was my first introduction to Studio Ghibli. I really liked it, so I made sure to look for the book 🙂

        1. I had to compare The Bloody Chamber to either Dracula and Edgar Allan Poe 🙂
          Ahh, that’s so cool that you got to analyse the film! I’ve never actually seen all of it which is really bad haha!
