Mystery Blogger Award x2

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I told you, there would be a lot of tags this month and you can probably see why. Funny enough: I start getting caught up and then some of my friends tag me in more things and I’m back where I started 😛 Not that I’m complaining, because I love to write tag posts!!!!

Anyways, I was tagged by Michelle @chellesbookramblings. If you’re not following Michelle, she writes a lot of fun bookish posts and I always get good recommendations of books I’ve never heard of. I was also tagged by Lily @SprinklesofDreams and she’s one of my new bookish friends. She has such a great aesthetic ❤ Please check them both out!

Thank you to Michelle and Lily for tagging me. Since this is gonna be a long post, let’s get into answering this tag!

6 Facts About Me:

  1. I’ve never had an interest in playing sports or an instrument. As a kid, I was more focused on reading or doing my own thing. As someone who has terrible hand and eye coordination, it probably wouldn’t have been a good fit anyways.
  2. Recently, I started giving audiobooks a try and I enjoy them! I sometimes struggle to focus but I think that’s normal. After giving up many times before, I think this time will finally stick.
  3. When I was younger, I really enjoyed reading romance novels. I think it’s because I wanted to read smut and that’s about all I could handle. Well until I started reading fanfiction lol.
  4. My favorite day of the week is Thursday for some reason. It always has been as it’s almost the weekend and the week is finally almost over!
  5. Last year, I went on a cruise to Alaska and decided cruises aren’t for me. I enjoyed Alaska but being on a cruise ship was not for me. It was busy, full of old people and I got seasick :/
  6. I hate sleeping with my window open after I had a nightmare someone came into my room and tried to kidnap me. Now, I’m terrified it’s actually going to happen!

Michelle’s Questions:

1. What’s your favorite Genre to read?

Contemporary! I’ve always loved contemporary books even as a kid and I always gravitate more towards them than any other genre.

2. Which character (Book/Movie/TV Show) would you save from a burning building??

3. Has a review (good or bad) ever changed your mind about a book??

Absolutely! If I’m planning on adding a book to my TBR or buying it, I usually check either Goodreads or with fellow bloggers before I do. I don’t want to invest my money in something if it’s not going to be worth it.

4. What is your favorite non-bookish activity?

I won’t count writing as that’s usually what I say! One of my other favorite non-bookish activities is watching Youtube. In the last year or so, I’ve become obsessed with Youtube and watch it at least once a day. Probably multiple times a day because there’s almost always something that interests me.

5. Tell me something about where you are from?? It can be a funny story or just what it’s like over there.

I live in a small town in Pennsylvania. There’s honestly not much around it and we can’t even get a pizza delivered to my house. It’s kind of sad because I never want to leave but still want food?? I don’t think I really have any funny stories as it’s basically just the same thing all the time 😛

Lily’s Questions:

1. What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Graduating from college!

2. What is something you wish you were better at?

Not caring about dumb stuff. I know that sounds bad, but I get worried about the dumbest stuff and I wish I didn’t. I wish I could just forget about stuff and let it go so I wouldn’t be so anxious lol.

3. Do you like (using) emojis or smileys in messages?

You know it! Lily and I actually talked about this in the comments 🙂 🙂 ❤ ❤

4. Which person, dead or alive, do you admire & why?

My Nana. She passed away on my first day of college, but I admired her for how she handled adversity, her work ethic, and her cooking ability. My Nana could cook anything and make it delicious. She was also never a hateful or mean person, she saw the best in everyone.

5. Describe your day in one sentence.

I worked 6-10 am, took a nap and now I’m working on my blog.


My Best Posts:

Since I was tagged twice, I’m going to share two of my best/favorite posts I’ve written.

My first fave has to be my review of Foolish Hearts and my ode to Emma Mills. I enjoyed writing that post and still love reading it 🙂

My second fave is The Lady Janies Book Tag that Ellyn and I made together. I’ve been wanting to make a tag forever and I’m glad we worked together on this one!


This is such a cop-out but I’m not tagging anyone as I’ve written a ton of tag posts this month and don’t want to overwhelm people!

Have you ever been on a cruise? If so, have you ever gotten seasick? If not, would you ever go on a cruise?

  1. same with the romance novels!!! I never ever read smut until fanfiction, and then I read Captive Prince and now I can handle anything XD
    also I so much agree w anxiety and it’s the worst. i’m always too anxious to do things to help me stop being anxious, it’s a horrible vicious cycle.
    i always try to go jogging or something, but then I realize i hate exercising so I just curl into a smol ball and think about Emma Mills c:

    1. Exactly! I used to write my own smut and I’m sure it was so bad lol. The more I think about it, the more I cringe!

      I’m the same way! I want to start walking my dog again but the last two times I did, another dog got loose. I didn’t want Chopper to get attacked by another dog, he’s a v small boy.

  2. I totally agree with you about loving Thursdays! For me, I don’t actually mind weekdays and having to go to class or to other commitments/responsibilities that come up because they give me something to do; I just hate the stress that comes with knowing you have to get up for the next few days and accomplish so much stuff and do a bunch of homework. Thursdays are nice because I can go to class, do any assignments that NEED to be done, but otherwise just chill, knowing the weekend is almost here and I get a break soon. Plus, I feel like Thursdays are just the most chill day of them all. Most clubs or school things I have to go to fall early in the week, most social things fall on Friday and Saturday nights, but Thursdays just sort of float there without anything.

    1. Lately I’ve been having Thursdays off, well not in 2 weeks but I’m crossing my fingers since my boyfriend usually gets that day off 🙂

      Plus Thursdays at my work aren’t really that busy either. It’s more about getting caught up before the weekend so it’s not as bad 🙂

  3. I’ve always wondered what a cruise would be like. It always seemed like it would be a less stressful way of traveling and seeing new places. I definitely wouldn’t be able to handle how busy it is though, people scare me too much 😂

  4. I’m also the same with romance. It was by favorite when I was in middle school. I think it must have something to do with hormones and puberty. I also kind of abandoned the book genre when I discovered fanfiction lol!

    I used to love contemporary novels when I was younger, and those were typically written in the 70s/80s/90s I imagine! I don’t like them much anymore. I think I stopped around the time contemporaries started featuring more current technology (IM and text) and scary situations. I think there’s much better contemporary novels being written today, and I’ve started to like it a bit more, especially if it’s more about issues like diversity and less about teen romance that I can’t relate to!

  5. I also love Contemporary! I used to ONLY read Supernatural/Paranormal and Fantasy…but joining the blogging community has DEFINITELY opened up my reading interests. I also wish I didn’t dwell over silly things. There are things I did like…15 years ago…that I still feel guilty over or worry about…like dude…get over it Jenna ha-ha! It’s so hard though…but it would definitely help with my anxiety if I could let it go.

    I’m sorry about your Nana. I bet she was a wonderful human being. It’s hard to lose someone you really love and feel close to. I’m glad you still have good memories of her though ❤

    1. That’s how I feel, too. Plus I think about how cringey I was when I was younger and I’m like who cares??? Everyone is cringey when they’re young but I still get anxious about it haha

      Thank you! It’s been almost 10 years but it still feels fresh and you’re right ❤

  6. Yayy, I’m so happy you answered my questions, and I relate to #2 so much!! I hope we’ll both learn to overcome this (somewhat), and learn to “care less”. (I actually have two book recommendations for that, if you’re interested, haha.)

    And congrats on graduating from college; it’s definitely something you should be very, very proud of!! 🙂 ❤
