Sunshine Blogger Award #7

sunshine-blogger-award 7

I was nominated by the wonderful Demetra @ Demi Reads for this award. If you have not checked out her blog yet please do.

The Rules

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

The Questions:

What was the first ever book you’ve read?

The Christmas Kitten

Honestly I don’t know, the first book I remember reading is the Christmas Kitten by Virginia Holt.

What do you think about book-to-movie adaptions?

They scare me. They can either go really well or very badly.

Where do you usually read?

In bed or sitting in my desk chair.

Ebooks or physical copies?

Physical books.

What is your favorite genre?

Fantasy

Any bookish pet peeves?

I really can’t stand when books are modeled completely after a popular book. Just because it worked once does not mean every book needs to be the same.  I have nothing against using the same concept to make your story different. Make it yours.

How do you feel about people borrowing your books?

I only lend books to those people I really trust.  (Would I trust you with my child?)

What is the latest book you bought?

Eon by Alison Goodman

Do you decide prior which books you are reading every month?

Nope. TBR’s and I don’t get along.

Do you reread books? If yes, which is the last one you reread?

Yes. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

List some blog posts you’re really proud of!

Review: Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

Tag: It’s Finally Fall!

Good Morning All!

I am doing the Finally Fall Tag!  I was not tagged to do this tag but I wanted to do it anyway.

In fall, the air is crisp and clear:
Name a book with a vivid setting!

 

 

The Stocking Jack the Ripper Series.

Nature is beautiful… but also dying:
Name a book that is beautifully written,
but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief

Fall is back to school season:
Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.

TroubleMaker

In order to keep warm, it’s good to spend some time with the people we love: Name a fictional family/household/friend-group that you’d like to be a part of.

 

 

The friend group for the Finishing School Series.
Sophronia, Dimity, Sidheag, Agatha and Genevieve

The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground:
Show us a pile of fall-colored spines!

Fall book stack 2018

Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside:
Share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.

The Name of the wind

The nights are getting darker:
Share a dark, creepy read.

Jamaica Inn

The days are getting colder:
Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up
somebody’s cold and rainy day

I don’t read many Heartwarming books but I will go with.

Love, Lies and Spies

Fall (luckily, it’s my favorite season) returns every year:
Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.

Jane Eyre

Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights:
Share your favorite cozy reading “accessories”!

Cozy book accessories
