Sunshine Blogger Award

I didn’t plan on this exclusive post, and here’s why. I had commented on Nicole of Thoughts Stained with Ink‘s Sunshine Blogger Award post, and she so graciously nominated me at my wanting to answer her awesome line-up of questions! (Haha you’re awesome Nicole, thank you!) I decided not to wait too long to share my answers! So, here we go!


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you by linking their blog
  2. Answer the questions
  3. Nominate 11 blogs with 11 questions
  4. List the rules as well as display the Sunshine Award Logo on your post



What favorite book of yours do you feel is completely underrated and why?

A lot of my favorite books are kind of overated, lol, so I have the opposite problem here. It’s hard to choose I guess, but I also love preaching about South of Broad by Pat Conroy, so there ya go, haha.

What character death has completely shattered you and why?


What is your favorite kind of cheese?

Smoked Gouda. Shameless plug, but Crooked Face Creamery via my buddy Will started my obsession with an amazing coffee bean gouda. It was heaven. Unfortunately, their cheeses (and Holy Donuts) are local Maine only, and I miss them so.

Favorite dog GIF, picture or video, ready go.

Favorite line from a novel?

Oh man, there’s so many… I’ll just go with a current favorite.

 “People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was color. All the color he had.”- Fredrik Backmann

Favorite fanart from a novel (it can be your own!)?

I ADORE Emily’s Cartoons. I love most HP fan art, but I can’t get enough of My Life as a Background Slytherin (and all the other houses, as well). 

You just won a (permanent) vacation in space. What do you plan to do there?

After finding some oxygenated atmosphere, I’d probably plot how to go home. I’m a terrible homebody and I don’t like change.

If you had to have a dinosaur as a pet, which would you pick and why?

Triceratops, no doubt. It could hang out my imaginary stables with my herd of horses.

Which book series is super popular but you hate it OR which book series do you adore that everyone else hated?

This is going to be an unpopular opinion I’m sure, but A Court of Thorns and Roses. 100% transparency, I haven’t read them, but I have no desire to.

What book should be adapted cinematically but has been grossly overlooked in that medium?

Haha well I don’t know about grossly overlooked, but I really think Burntown by Jennifer McMahon or Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Jaswal Kaur would make interesting movies!

What book do you really want to read but can’t find on the shelves right now?

I think I have the opposite problem here. There are so many books that I want to read out there, and no time to take them off the shelves! But if I had to answer, I think a historical fiction thriller set in a country I haven’t ‘traveled’ to in a book yet.


  1. Top 3 non-series books- go.
  2. NetGalley, Edelweiss or other?
  3. Favorite animal & why?

  8. Book blogs you love following?
  9. Place you’d love to travel to, either in a book or in real life?

  1. Thanks again for the nomination! <3

  2. Ah, I’m so glad you decided to do this! I absolutely loved your answers. And I was seriously laughing SO HARD at that dog video sitting here at my desk, so that might have been the highlight of my day, so thank you so much for that! <3 I also don't think I follow any of the bloggers you tag, so now I definitely need to check all of their sites out, too!

    Thank you again for doing this award. It was so cool to read your answers! <3
