Sunshine Blogger Award #3 & #4

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I said I’d be back with 2 more Sunshine Blogger posts and here I am. This time, I’m going to be featuring both sets of questions and tag 7 people this time. It equals out to 11 so I think it’s pretty fair ūüėõ

This time, I was tagged by two lovely ladies. Not only do I love their blogs but I love talking to them and consider them my friends! First, I was tagged by LaRonda of Flying Paperbacks. I always get great recommendations from her posts so be sure to check her out.

The very same week, I was tagged by Ellyn of allonsythornraxxbooks. Ellyn is one of my favorite people to talk to and I loved the buddy read we did together. She posts a lot of cool bookish content, but branches out too so check her out if you like a little bit of everything.

Thank you, ladies, so much! I’m so grateful you both tagged me and I’m so excited to get started on your questions so let’s go.


LaRonda’s Questions:

1. How did you decide the theme for your blog?

For the general theme or look of my blog, pink is my favorite color. I basically asked my friend Ericka to work her magic so she made me some graphics with pink and mint green. Basically, my entire theme is based on those colors but I also mix it up such as in my Top 5 Tuesday posts.

2. What’s your favorite animal?

I already answered this for my other Sunshine blogger so I’m featuring my second favorite animal which is a cat.

3. How did you find your favorite book?

My current favorite book is¬†Stalking Jack the Ripper. I’ve heard about this book from booktubers and fellow bloggers who raved about it. I’m glad I listened to the hype and picked it up.

4. Is there any strategy to the way to organize your shelves?

Nope! I just organize them however I think will look the best.

5. Have you met any authors?

6. Favorite app on your phone?

It’s a tie between Kik as that’s what I used to talk to my boyfriend, Instagram because I’m always on and Youtube because I love watching videos.

7. If you could have any pet form any book, what would it be?

Maybe I’m just stupid but I have no idea how to answer this. I’m sorry haha

8. What’s your favorite book in your least favorite color?

I don’t really have a least favorite color. I like all colors, so I’m going with a color I don’t see on many books: yellow.

25812109

9. Winter or Summer?

10. What is a guilty pleasure show you watch?

A guilty pleasure show I watch is American Dad. I used to keep up with it, but I prefer the older episodes. It airs on Adult Swim and TBS so I only catch it maybe once or twice a week. Every time I do, it always cracks me up.

11. How many times have you moved and which place was your favorite?

I’ve only moved twice besides college. I’m not counting those because I lived in a dorm and I prefer the house I’m in now. When I was 5, my parents, brother and I moved from our apartment to our house.

I’m trying not to be lazy but let’s see if I come up with questions. If not, then I’ll just copy LaRonda’s.¬†

I’m tagging Nia, Claire, and¬†theorangutanlibrarian.


Ellyn’s Questions:

1. What’s been your favorite read of 2018 so far?

22840421

This is a tie between¬†My Lady Jane¬†and¬†Stalking Jack the Ripper. I couldn’t decide between the two, but I’m going with¬†My Lady Jane¬†since I already mentioned¬†SJTR.

2. Shout out to the last person you followed, and the last person who followed you!

The last person I followed was Blossoms and Bullet Journals. She writes a lot of awesome posts on bullet journaling and books, two things I really enjoy!

The last person who followed me was DG Book Blog. ūüôā

3. Do you have any readathon plans this month/ year?

Not currently, but I do plan on participating in more. I participated in the Contemporary-A-Thon last month so maybe!

4. Do you have any weird obsessions?

I could go on and on, but I’m going to go with colorful pens, the NFL, journals, and blankets. I love blankets so much and I have shelves in my room, filled with them ūüėõ

5. What are your top 5 anticipated 2018 releases?

  • Dread Nation
  • Tyler Johnson Was Here
  • My Plain Jane
  • The Struggle is Real
  • My So-Called Bollywood Life

6. What are you currently reading?

As of the time I’m writing this post, I’m currently reading¬†Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I’ll more than likely have it done by the time this posts. ūüôā

7. What were your top 3 favorite reads of 2017?

  • The Hate U Give
  • Dear Martin
  • The Smell of Other People’s Houses

8. Do you read and eat at the same time?

Sometimes! It depends on what I’m eating and how I’m feeling.

9. Have you ever considered being a part of Booktube?

10. What bookish world would you most like to travel to?

If you’ve read any of my posts, I’m sure you can guess this one by now!

11. What is your favorite blog post to read? & What is your favorite to write?

My favorite to read is either recommendations or tags.

My favorites to write are Top 5 Tuesday and tags. I just really enjoy tags, okay?

I think I’m actually going to write questions so feel free to refer to those below unless you like Ellyn’s questions more!

Sunshine Blogger Award #2

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! This is going to sound so cheesy, but I’m extremely happy to be writing up this post. For a long time, I didn’t get tagged in much. Now, I’ve been tagged in this 2 other times. ūüôā

adfa-1.png

I’ll be featuring the other 2 in a post later this week. For this Sunshine Blogger Award, I was tagged by the lovely Malaine of Malaine Loves Fiction. I haven’t been following her for very long but I love her blog. She has such a fun and bubbly personality especially her sass!

If you’re not following Malanie, please do it now! Here’s a look at the rules before I get started answering questions.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog.

1. Name the first book that comes to mind GO

23197837

As soon as I saw this question, a million books came to mind. I closed my eyes and cleared my mind.¬†The Belles¬†was the first book to come to mind and I’m not even sure if I want to read it. I’ve heard mixed things but oh well haha.

2. What’s your favorite TV show of all time?

I had no trouble coming up with this answer. It has to be¬†Bob’s Burgers! I don’t talk about it much on here, but it’s the main subject I cover on Hidden Remote ūüôā

3. Who is your favorite author?

23310751

Right now, it’s Emma Mills. I loved the first book of hers I read and I already have the second one on my shelf.

4. Do you read ARCs? Favorite ARC you’ve ever received?

5. 3 book characters who are most like you

  • Devon from¬†First & Then
  • Jill from¬†A Season of Daring Greatly
  • Molly from¬†The Upside of Unrequited

6. Favorite animal?

Hyenas have become one of my favorite animals. I blame The Lion King!

7. Favorite book character?

This is a really tough question, but I’m going to go with…..

4300602

Claudia from¬†The Babysitters Club¬†series. I don’t know what it was, but I loved Claudia so much. She was always my favorite and I really need to reread some of my old books.

8. Which book do you wish you could forget so you could reread it for the first time again?

19370304

Enough said!

9. Favorite book as a child?

722946

Since I already mentioned¬†The Babysitters Club, I decided to pick my favorite¬†American Girl¬†book.¬†Meet Josefina¬†was about Josefina as she dealt with life in Mexico in the 1800’s including losing her mother, living with her grandpa and working hard. Looking back, I’m really glad I read this book when I was younger.

10. Book you wish would be turned into a movie or TV show

18667779

Since this book is set in Hollywood, I think it would make an awesome movie. I think it’d do better as an indie release instead of a wide release. I don’t think it would be a huge blockbuster, but a nice quiet YA adaptation.

11. Book you’re really really looking forward to in 2018

30223025


Those are all the questions and I’m not going to write any haha. I still have 2 more posts to do so I’m just going to copy Malaine’s.

I know I’m supposed to tag 11 people, but I’m splitting it up between posts. I’m going to tag 4 people in this post.

I enjoy all of these ladies and their blogs. Make sure you check them out ūüôā

Sunshine Blogger Award #1

Thank you to¬†Danielle of Life of a Literary Nerd for tagging me. I’ve never been tagged in one of these before so I feel special haha ūüėÄ Definitely go check her blog out because she posts a lot of fun tags and has awesome reviews!

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.

How It Works:

  • Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog

Questions & Answers:

1. What was the last book you added to your TBR?

25566675

The last book I added to my Goodreads TBR was¬†Piecing Me Together.¬†This is a book I’ve been looking forward to reading for a long time and I’m so anxious to read it. Maybe it’s my high expectations or what, but I have yet to pick it up. Maybe, I’ll finally pick it up this month.

2. If you could get an ARC of any book that comes out later this year what would it be?

24974996

I feel like a broken record haha, because I mentioned both of these books in my TBR tag but I’m excited for¬†Dear Martin. It’s an awesome premise and I can’t wait to see what Nic Stone does with it. As much as I loved¬†The Hate U Give, I think it has some competition with¬†Dear Martin. Either way, I’d love to get an arc of this!

3. What is your favorite place to read?

My favorite place to read is definitely my bed. Usually, I read on my laptop but I like being able to snuggle up in my blankets and just concentrate. It really helps me unwind and relax after a long day.

4. What author do you want to read more of?

Morgan Maston, for sure. I’ve only read two of her books but I’d like to read the rest of them and Lysette just finished all of them. I’d really love to check out the rest of her books and see if I like them as much.

I actually have a lot of authors I have yet to read, but I only included someone I’d read before.

5. What author can you not get into?

I actually have two answers for this question. I’ve only read one book of each so maybe it was just the choice or what but I couldn’t get into them. The first one has to Katie Cotugno and I so badly wanted to like her. However,¬†Fireworks¬†ended up being my most disappointing read yet and I couldn’t get into¬†99 Days. Maybe I’ll give¬†Top Ten¬†a try because I think it’s about sports but who knows?

The other author I couldn’t get into was Kasie West. I know she’s the queen of YA contemporaries, but she missed the mark with me. Maybe, they’re a little too cheesy and predictable for me. I’ve only read one of her books so maybe another one will stand out to me, but for now, she’s someone I can’t get into.

6. What book do you think everyone needs to read?

4961048

I just read this book in 2017, but I fell in love with it. I think everyone should read this because it gives a different side of Carrie Fisher. She was such a huge fixture in a lot of people’s lives and she shares a lot of details people don’t know or expect. This book really opened my eyes and made me appreciate her even more. If you’re a fan of Carrie,¬†Star Wars¬†or anything, you need to read¬†Wishful Drinking.

7. If you could turn any book into a movie/tv show what would it be?

30038906

The whole time I was reading¬†The Names They Gave Us, I thought about how good this would be as a movie. It was such an emotional yet amazing read that would translate nicely on film. I’d love to see the cast especially Jones and what they would change and keep with the film. I’m not sure if Emery Lord would sell the rights, but I’d love to see it adapted in some form.

8. What is your book dream vacation spot?

Map_of_the_Hundred_Acre_Wood

I know I already mentioned this in my bookish worlds I’d like to live in, but I had to mention it again. I’d love to take a vacation to The 100 Acre Woods. It seems like such a relaxing environment where I could eat, sleep and hang out with Winnie the Pooh. The closest I’ll ever get is riding The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at Disneyland again but oh well. I’d love to go there on a bookish vacation.

9. What is your favorite genre to read?

Young Adult, definitely. I’m sure you could have guessed that from looking at my blog, but I love reading YA and I’m glad it’s expanded since I was younger. As much as I love YA, I also love reading celebrity memoirs/autobiographies, too.

10. What is the last song you listened to?

This song came up in my recommended videos the other day and I figured why not give it a listen?¬†I like Dustin Lynch and this previous album was one of my favorites.¬†I can’t personally relate to “Love Me or Leave Me Alone,” but I think it’s a really good song and it has a nice beat. It’s on the slower side so I like to listen to it when I’m either writing or lying in bed.

11. Who are your top 5 characters?

I wasn’t sure what I was going to pick, but I decided to go with my top 5 favorite Gravity Falls characters.

5: Ford
4: Grunkle Stan
3: Soos
2: Dipper
1: Mabel
