The Sunshine Blogger Award Number Three

Hello beautiful people!

Wow…this is now my THIRD nomination for the Sunshine Blogger Award…I feel pretty special.

Thank you so much Rebecca for the nomination! Rebecca and I started talking more this year, which I’m very grateful for. Rebecca, the owner of bookishlyrebecca (previously known as My Life as a Sports Fangirl), is a wonderful human being and blogger. She’s very kind, polite, fun, and has a real knack for blogging; it’s really no surprise that her blog has continued to skyrocket as it grows in popularity. If you haven’t introduced yourself to Rebecca and her blog, I highly suggest you get on over and do that.

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, positive and inspiring, while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.

The Rules

  1. Thank the person/persons that nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions your nominator has given you.
  3. Nominate 11 other people and give them 11 new questions to answer.
  4. List the rules and display the award.

Rebecca’s Questions

One. What author do you want to read more of 2018?

I would LOVE to find some more inclusive YA fantasy novels. Though fantasy is my favourite genre, I haven’t read a single one in quite some time now; I grew a little obsessed with paranormal and coming of age novels last year. It would be amazing to find a fantasy series that includes different forms of sexuality, different races and ethnicity groups, and not bound by having a stereotypical white male as the lead…anyone have any suggestions?

Two. Do you bullet journal?

Funny you mention that, since it just so happens I started a Bullet Journal this year. If anyone is interested, you can view all my Bullet Journal posts here!

Three. Who is your favorite couple from a TV show?

Hmmm…I don’t really watch a lot of television shows anymore; I’m trying to find ways to sneak in more reading. I have some favourite bromance couples…if that counts. The first would be Sherlock and Watson from BBC’s Sherlock, the second would be Dean and Castiel from Supernatural, and the third would be Rick and Daryl from The Walking Dead.

Four. How many books have you read so far in 2018?

Ha-ha…this is going to be embarrassing…6 books…though, I have a plan of attack to catch up on reading!

Five. Is your reading goal higher or lower than last year’s?

My reading goal in 5 books higher this year, though I’ll be happy if I get to 25 at this rate.

Six. Name 3 of your celebrity crushes!

Ummm…I don’t really have celebrity crushes, since I don’t know much about them (expect James McAvoy…). I do, however, have TV show and movie character crushes! For the sake of making my life easier, I’ll stick with just TV shows:

Bellamy Blake from The 100 (when he’s not being an ass)

Dean Winchester from Supernatural (when he’s not constantly looking for a death with)

Karev from Grey’s Anatomy (when he’s not being an ass…so the later seasons)

…no…I totally don’t have a thing for wounded men who are asses but are actually sweethearts and just need someone to listen to them and help them through their struggles…

Seven. Do you have any pets?

Technically, my parents do…though I also claim them as my own puppies! We have two Cocker Spaniels named Buzz “Bert” and Aster “Millie” (that’s right…my mom gave them middle names).

Eight. What was the last movie you saw in theaters?

Nine. Do you like Disney? If so, what is your favorite movie?

…is this even a real question?! If you don’t like at least ONE Disney film, you scare me. Picking a favourite…that’s impossible. As of late, I continue to be obsessed with Tangled — it’s my happy feelings movie.

Ten. Do you read classics?

Yup! I read quite a few in undergrad, especially since I was an English Literature major. I don’t believe there’s this NEED to read them all like other people do, but there are a few that I think a lot of people could learn a lot from.

Eleven. Paperback or hardcover?

Trick question: Hardcover for aesthetics and paperback for ease of use. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with buying hardcover books; however, I find it MUCH easier to read from a paperback novel.

    1. Oh my gosh me too! Anytime my anxiety gets the best of me or I feel the need to cheer up, I watch Tangled. How can people NOT LOVE that movie?!? Watson and Sherlock…love. I like how they actually depicted them more similar to the books compared to some of the movies from the 70s and 80s, especially Watson. Bellamy…he makes me mad…but I have a HUGE crush on him haha!

      Okay…if we EVER end up going to a book event at the same time…we have to all meet one another…it’s official now.

      Anytime ladies! You’re both phenomenal! I can’t wait to read them!!


      1. Oh my gosh! YES! We need to meet one of these days! We are always going to book events, so who knows, it could totally happen!! The power of books has no limit haha!

        And yes, the BBC show’s portrayal of Watson and Sherlock is by our favorite of all the movie and TV shows!

        Happy reading, friend! We can’t wait til we have some free time and can begin answering your questions 🙂

      2. I know eh?? I REALLY want to go to Book Con this or next year…it’s on my bucket list. I actually want to find more about book events.

        I know eh? I remember has a kid they always made Watson an old out of shape man…and I’m over here thinking “…have you READ the books?” It was so frustrating. I also like the Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law versions as well.

        Happy reading to you both as well!! ❤


      3. Oh my gosh, we went to Book Con last year and it was AMAZING! You should definitely go! It’s well worth the money! We are so bummed that we can’t go this year 😦

        And we LOVE Robert Downey Jr! So we enjoyed his version of Sherlock; though we like him better as Iron Man haha!

  2. YOUR SHOUTOUT…ha I’M FINE I’M FINE I’M FINE. i’m not crying at all nope

    I am such a dweeb because I don’t watch any of the shows you mentioned. At least I’ve heard all about them haha. You came up with some really fun questions too, ahh!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Hehehe!! It’s okay…I cry over everything…it’s a thing.

      Out of all the shows, you should definitely check out Sherlock. There aren’t many episodes to catch up on and it’s just such a tremendous show. I’m borderline obsessed with BBC shows…I don’t want as much TV now…so I just have the few shows I stick with.

      I hope you have fun answering them!
