Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂
First thing I want to say today is: Thank you so much for 200 followers!! The next thing I want to say is I lost track of my days last week. I stopped paying attention and the next thing I kne\_/w it was Friday and I was like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
But today I am back and I’m back doing the Sunshine Blogger Award. I was nominated by Nikita @ Prose & Pancakes. You should definitely go give her a follow. Thank you Nikita!

- Nominate 11 other blogs and give them 11 new questions to answer.
- Notify your nominees and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your post
1- Do you watch book-to-movie adaptations? Which ones are your favourite?
I do, although I can’t say I always read the book before watching the movie. Some of my favourites have been: Love, Simon, To All The Boy’s I’ve Loved Before, Room.
2- Can you name an underrated book you read and loved?
I haven’t seen enough love for The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven or Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer. I mean they’ve got good ratings but they’re just not talked about enough and they deserve it!
3- Do you read or write fanfiction?
I definitely read fanfic. I like the 5+1 thing fics and the fun no angst quick fics. They’re the best for when I’m in bed feeling too anxious to sleep. And I have written fics before. I wrote Harry Potter fics on wattpad when I was like 12 and they got thousands of views and I’ve never done anything as successful since.
4- How did you fall in love with reading? When did it happen?
I’ve always loved reading but I started reading more when I moved away and I got into Harry Potter (the movies first then the books) and then it progressed from there with me discovering goodreads and booktube and discovering my own reading tastes.
5- Do you have any other hobbies besides reading books and blogging about them? If yes, what are they?
Does sleeping count as a hobby?
Besides sleeping I used to be really into drawing and art and I was slowly getting better but then school started getting crazy and it’s something I haven’t done in a while but would love to get back into.
6- Which book is closest to your heart?
Probably All For the Game trilogy by Nora Sakovic just because it’s one of my favourites that I plan to re-read forever.
7- What would be the title of the book based on your life?
Oooo I love this question! The only thing coming to my mind is: This Mai Have Been a Bad Idea, because my name is actually Elli-Mai and I like puns and also because I make bad decisions.
8- What’s one movie you want to be novelised?
A movie I want to be turned into a book. This is hard. Maybe 10 Things I Hate About You I finally got around to watching that a few months back and really liked it. Not even necessarily novelised but a book similar?
9- You can only read either graphic novels or fanfiction. Which do you choose?
Fanfiction all the way. Maybe I’d get more sleep and revert back to a normal, less zombie-fied member of society but I wouldn’t be happy without my daily does of flics so it wouldn’t be worth it.
10- Book blogging or Booktube – which do you like more?
I like taking part in blogging more but I enjoy consuming booktube more just because I can multi-task while watching videos. Also my computer keeps freezing which makes reading blog posts stressful at times but I do still love reading other peoples posts!
11- What’s one thing book blogging has taught you?
Book blogging has taught me that no matter how many times you check your post for spelling errors and the like you’ll still find annoying little mistakes that keep you up at night even months later.
(I’m not nominating 11 people because that’s a lot and I’m sorry.)
My Questions to you:
- Are you a fan of reality TV?
- Have you ever read a book where a character has the same name as you?
- What meal could you happily eat forever?
- Do you ever procrastinate reading?
- What fictional character would you die for?
- What’s your current and/or all time favourite TV show?
- Are you enjoying the book(s) you’re currently reading?
- What was the last movie you saw at the cinema? Did you enjoy it?
- Who was the best teacher you’ve ever had?
- Favourite gift you’ve ever received?
- What are you planning on reading next?
So those are my answers and those are my newly created, slightly lack luster questions. Thank you again to Nikita for the nomination and thank you for reading.
