|| What is your comfort book? ||
The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong ↠ Okay … this is going to seem a little weird, since it’s a YA urban fantasy about teens escaping from these AWFUL scientists. But it’s a story that I TRULY love, fully knowing that when I re-read it that I’ll enjoy it. Oh! And book number two is my favourite, hence why I chose this one.
|| What is your favourite creative outlet? ||
Bullet Journaling, blogging and book photography ↠ Bullet Journaling is one of those things I got into because I REALLY needed to start organizing my life … and then I just kind of fell in love with it. Blogging is an obvious one ha-ha! But book photography is something I didn’t think I would end up doing. I’m honestly not the BEST at it, but I hope to hone my skills more and more!
|| Changes that appear bad but you secretly love? ||
Life || Change in scenery ↠ Honestly, I’m a homebody. I don’t hate change but I also don’t seek it. What I HAVE been finding lately is a change in scenery is healthy and uplifting. Whether it’s trying a new coffee shop or travelling somewhere new, getting out of the house can be rewarding.
Books || Alternating POVs ↠ So I copied Rachael and did an opposite. I honestly think that for the MOST part, alternating POVs are not executed properly. BUT WHEN DONE RIGHT, they can be rather intriguing!
Pumpkin Spaced Latte
|| Something you love that others tend to judge ||
Life || Solitude ↠ Okay … I’m not a recluse, but I really appreciate the beauty of solitude. There’s just something lovely about planning your day around you and no one else. I obviously love my friends and require social outlets, but solitude is a wonderful thing.
Books || The Chosen One ↠ Yup … I don’t care that people don’t like this trope … I like it, as long as it’s done properly! I don’t really know WHY I love it so much, but I do.
|| What makes you explode with joy? ||
SO MANY THINGS ↠ My colleagues joke that I LITERALLY find joy in everything. I’m one of those people you see smelling flowers, gazing up at clouds, yelling for joy about blue skies, counting the stars at night … yup, that’s me. But I’m okay with that! There are, however, two things that come into mind:
Fall Weather ↠ Once that fall weather starts coming in, I’m like a WHOLE new woman! My over-sized sweaters and beanies come out, ready for all the glorious temperatures. The best ever is going for a walk when the leaves begin to change, listening to some folk/indie music.
Christmas Season ↠ I’m honestly a lover of the Christmas season. I love the lights, the glistening snow, the winter activities … all of it. My favourite thing is reading my book on my couch with the Christmas Tree lights and window lights on, drinking my tea or hot cocoa.
Bonus: Whenever my mom visits me ha-ha!
|| Favourite scary film or book ||
Movie || Ghost Hunt & Coraline ↠ I’m not gonna lie … I don’t like scary things ha-ha! Like, I do enjoy haunted walks and hay rides, and jump-scare video games … but I would never do or watch these things on my own. However, Ghost Hunt and Coraline are fairly freaky in my personal opinion (those button eyes). Ghost Hunt is an anime series that’s SUPER SCARY! I love it but have to watch it during the day … I once binged it at night … and couldn’t sleep … but it’s so good. And I don’t even think I need to justify why Coraline is scary … BUTTON EYES!
Book || The Cainsville Series by Kelley Armstrong ↠ Again, this isn’t classified as horror … but it’s actually really creepy at points! Body parts appearing randomly, spooky ghosts, a freaky asylum … I definitely jumped and looked over my shoulder during my read through ha-ha!
|| Favourite thing to eat ||
Baked Goods & Sushi ↠ Ummm … I’m a foodie … so this is hard. After I had to get my gallbladder removed, I began to grow a number of stomach issues *sigh*. Like Rachael, I eat a primarily plant based diet (eggs and fish are included though). However, I do enjoy baked good (especially at these local vegan restaurants) and sushi … there’s so many vegan options now!
|| Your autumn ‘must have’ accessory ||
Beanie & Over-Sized Sweaters ↠ Let’s be real here, my entire wardrobe focuses around the fall weather … hence why I hibernate in the summer. But my go-to’s are definitely over-sized knit pattern sweaters and beanies … I’m known as the Queen of Beanies, I’ll have you know.
|| A book or film that burns your soul ||
Like Rachael, I’m assuming this is POSITIVE. So things that warm my soul are …
Film || Friends ↠ If you don’t know already, I’m quite LITERALLY obsessed with Friends … it’s a borderline issue. I just love the feels and happiness and comical moments. When I feel anxious and need a break from the awful things in the world, I watch this show.
Book || The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling ↠ Well … I feel as though THIS was an obvious one. I can’t help it though! This book makes me feel so wonderful, daydreaming about getting my own Hogwarts letter. Typing this is REALLY making me want to re-read the books sooner rather than later …
|| A book or film that seems one thing but really has a different inside ||
The Charlotte Holmes series by Brittany Cavallaro ↠ Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy this series … but I thought it would be more crime fighting and mystery solving. However, the primary focus seems to be about Jamie and Charlotte’s friendship/romance. This is fine and all, but I wish I knew that going in.
As always, there’s no pressure to participate:
