Awwwwww!!! Thanks to the lovely Darque Dreamer Reads for nominating me for this award a few weeks ago. It means a lot to me that she thinks I make an impact on readers. (Don’t tell, I’m not writing for everybody. I’m writing for me. Shhhhhhh!)
(Seriously though, I really do hope I make an impact, because I am lying when I say I write just for me!)
Back on topic, Darque Dreamer is one of my absolute favorite bloggers, and if you aren’t following her you should. She is the bomb diggity.
- Anybody nominated can nominate eight other bloggers.
- The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator.
- The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.
- If any of the questions asked are offensive or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.
Darque Dreamer’s Questions:
- What is a book genre you absolutely refuse to read?
At the risk of alienating a lot of people, I have never read and have no intention of ever reading a romance or erotica novel. I’ve read romance-y novels before, like Nicholas Sparks, and they are just not my thing. Sorry. And I really prefer to not read graphic sex scenes, so… Not the genre for me.
- What is your absolute favorite movie?
Back before 2012 I would have absolutely said The Lord of the Rings without a second thought. Like the books, I treat the trilogy as one giant movie, because how are you supposed to pick which part of a story you like the best? Beginning, middle, or end? No. Now, however, I can’t choose. I still love LOTR, but Pitch Perfect. That is a movie that makes me literally laugh out loud EVERY SINGLE TIME I watch it. Still. And I’ve watched it a kajillion times. Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins are pure genius. And Rebel Wilson, obviously. And the entire freaking cast. AH! Also, the music! How did they manage to find a collection of songs that are so completely different that I love? And arrange them so brilliantly for acappella???? Full disclosure, I was an acappella nerd WAAAAAAAY before this movie came out. If you want a recommendation, Vocal Point are my favorite. So how the heck am I supposed to pick between those two? It’s like trying to choose a favorite between pizza and pumpkin pie. I can’t and I won’t. They are both my favorites.
- Which bookish character do you most relate to?
Oooooo, great question! See, I relate pretty strongly to just about every character I’ve ever read. It’s just what I do, I connect to books, and I find something in the character that reminds me of me. I don’t do it on purpose, I just do it. But when I was 11 and I read Harry Potter for the first time, Hermione struck such a chord with me. I also love to read. I was also a know-it-all, and more than a little bossy. I also felt like my friends maybe weren’t really my friends. Like a little bit of an outcast. Let me tell you, being a know-it-all does NOT make you popular. To this day she remains one of my all time favorite characters, if for no other reason than because she taught me to love myself the way I am, and that I can make friends when I’m willing to be a friend.
I’m only going to nominate a couple of people for this, mostly because I’ve been nominating and tagging a lot of people and I suspect I’m starting to get obnoxious. Haha. But here are some friends whose blogs I always appreciate reading.
- What was the first book you fell in love with?
- What song do you ALWAYS sing along to when it comes on?
- If you could have dinner with any author, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
