can you believe i was tagged (2).png

🌻🌼What is a book that made you happy?🌼🌻

Most recently it was definitely The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare & Wesley Chu. I loved the atmosphere and all the different countries described, I loved seeing more of my boy Alec and his relationship with Magnus and overall I just had a giant grin on my face while reading.

🌻🌼What is your NOTP (a book couple that you don’t like)?🌼🌻

I have two. One from a book and one from a television show I’m currently watching.

So my bookish NOTP is Rose and Dimitri from The Vampire Academy. I never liked it, I don’t care how handsome he is, he is her teacher and just no. Gross.

(Another NOTP is shipping anyone from the All For the Game series with Riko Moriyama. No thank you)

And for the show Scandal I cannot stand Olivia Pope and Presidents Fitz Grant together. He is so annoying. He’s whiny and completely, almost worryingly, obsessed with Olivia and I’m pretty sure they’re going to end up together but I don’t want that. Olivia (and Mellie, his wife) deserve better. (Sorry for the mini rant this has been building through the seasons)

🌻🌼 What song reminds you of your childhood? 🌼🌻

I know I’m only meant to be giving one answer but I can’t help myself I’m so sorry:

  • Build me up buttercup. (A bop)
  • This is the way to Amarillo (The Peter Kay video version is iconic)
  • Literally anything by Bon Jovi/Meatloaf/Bryan Adams/Oasis
  • High School Musical Soundtrack from all three movies.

That is my childhood summed up in four bullet points.

🌻🌼Do you listen to music while writing a post or you need silence?🌼🌻

Er normally I’ll have some sort of music or show running in the background and I can write perfectlty fine with that but sometimes I do have to pause whatever I’m listening to when I can’t think of a certain word or when I’m proof reading for spelling errors (that still end up in the post anyways because I’m terrible)

🌻🌼What is your favorite TV show?🌼🌻

Either Teen Wolf, Legends of Tomorrow or Elementary.

I physically cannot and will not choose between these three amazing shows.

🌻🌼What is your opinion on audiobooks?🌼🌻

Ugh I wish I could listen to audiobooks! I’ve tried before, I attempted re-reading The Raven Boys by audiobook through a copy that was posted on YouTube (which is bad I know) and I got about halfway and never picked it up again.

For me they just don’t work, I don’t have a very good attention span for them and always get distracted. Maybe in the future I can try again because there are some books that people have said are 100 times better through audio.

🌻🌼What is/was your favorite subject in school? in honor of school starting in a few weeks🌼🌻

Ugh God school. Don’t remind me 😦

Er last year my favourite and also least favourite subject was History.  I love learning about history and especially with the teacher I had last year who made it all very story like.

However I hate the actual studying for histroy. I was up till about 2am on one of my last history exams because I’d passed all my history exams throughout the year and getting that passing mark became like a drug (I’m being dramatic again but also with my anxiety it was kind of like an obsession) and I didn’t want to fail like the very last few.

So I love history itself, I’m doing world history this year before the Hell of more Spanish history in my final year.  I just don’t enjoy stressing over the exams and also … so many dates to memorise.

I nominate …


1)How do you organize your bookshelf?

2)Do you have any pets? – If yes what are their names and do you have photos? If no would you like a pet and what type of pet would you get?

3)What book(s) have you had on your shelf unread for the longest?

4)What time/event in history would you most like to see?

5)If you could travel anywhere where would you go? (fictional or real)

6)What was your favourite childhood movie?

7)If you were a character in a YA novel what type of character would you be?(For example: Protagonist, sidekick, villain, the sister who’s killed for the sake of the plot, the forgotten about 3rd of a love triangle?)

  1. Thank you so much for nominating me! 😀 I love History too but I had a horrible teacher that kinda ruined it for me. >_< I'm looking forward to answer your questions! They are really interesting and I'm sure I'll love to do this tag! XD
