What’s your favorite kind of post to write?

I really love writing wrap up posts. They’re definitely the most fun, imo. They’re also my favourite post to read.

What’s the strangest/most unique place you’ve ever a book?

I’m boring and don’t really read anywhere except my room. I have read when I was travelling, but I guess that’s not really strange?

What’s a bookish/blogging goal you have for next year?

To finish all my unread series and just attempt to create more original content.

Which setting would you choose to live in: dystopian or fantasy? And why?

I feel like we’re all currently in a Dystopian setting right now with how current politics are. The world is kinda scary right now. I guess I’d choose Fantasy. I’d probably die in both, but at least I can have magic in a Fantasy world 😀

You’re in the Hunger Games (district style where two can live), who would you pick as your parter? It can be a character from any book/series. 

Inej from Six of Crows. She is so badass and stealthy. She’s also extremely loyal.

Jess' Questions.png

Favourite fictional world?

I know this is such a cliche answer and I know everyone says it, but Harry Potter. How can I not choose that honestly? I’m actually quite upset that I’ll never be able to explore it. I really love the world of Percy Jackson too and all the parallel Londons in the Shades of Magic series.

Favourite dessert?

I’m honestly not a huge dessert person. I know. I know. Does Reeses Cups count? I love chocolate and peanut butter combined so much.

What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

All the amazing people! I haven’t found a community this welcoming since my Livejournal days. I’m so grateful that I get to interact with so many wonderful people.

What’s one thing you want to accomplish within the next twelve months?

I’d just like to try and manage my mental illnesses better.

WEIRD: Would you rather have hands and feet like a monkey or a long neck like a giraffe?

Haha! I feel like hands and feet like a monkey would be a lot more useful. I mean I could still hold things. Having a long neck like a giraffe would be pretty annoying.

Fadwa's Questions.png

What’s one pet-peeve you have that you cannot handle above all others?

I guess just ignorance and closed mindedness. I can’t deal with someone who’s not willing to open their eyes and educate themselves. It’s one thing to genuinely be unaware of something, but it’s another when you know and still refuse to acknowledge it. I have no time for those kind of people.

What’s your favorite Tv-show? Movie? Book?

Favourite TV show(s):

Favourite Movie(s):

Image result for finding nemo Image result for almost famous Related image

This is honestly such a random combination, but there you go lmao. Finding Nemo has been my fave since it was released. I went through a phase where I collected SO MUCH merch from it. I can quote the entire movie start to finish when I watch it. Almost Famous is like the story of my life and I relate to Kate Hudson’s character like whoa. The Force Awakens is what made me fall in love with Stars. I love Rey, Finn, Poe and my trash son Kylo Ren SO MUCH.

Favourite Book:

NO. YOU CAN’T MAKE ME CHOOSE!

What’s your main reading resolution for next year?

To mainly finish all the series I haven’t completed and to catch up on my giant ass backlist.

What’s one hidden skill you have?

I don’t know if it counts as a “hidden skill” but I can type pretty fast? Like 100-120 words per minute. I mean it’s not like a super useful skill to have, but it does make typing posts and replying to comments a lot quicker

Funny Question: What’s one emoji that you use out of place or that no one else uses?

So it’s not really out of place or one no else uses but my best friend (hey Sheridan) and I CONSTANTLY send “💁🏻💅🏻” to each other, haha.

Also I think this “🙂” is supposed to be just a different version of smiley face but imo it looks like it’s ready for death/ready to kill/totally sarcastic so I always use it at the end of sentences like “that thing broke my heart it’s fine i’m okay” hahaha

  1. Thanks so much for tagging me in this, Lauren!! Ahh, this looks so fun! Inej is such a good pick to be your district partner for the Hunger Games – she would definitely be my first choice, too. And your favorite movies are all SUCH great picks – HAHAH, I, too, am complete Star Wars trash (my little brother and dad forced me to watch all the movies growing up, but it wasn’t until I watched A New Hope that I fell in love with the movies.

  2. Wow, a paranormal investigator, it sounds so intriguing! No wonder you won the MYSTERY blogger award. It sounds so interesting! I’m always fascinated by criminal profiling and crimes but I don’t have a head for it, so I just appreciate it from afar.
    I also love wrap ups and only read in my room haha It’s my room for something, right? And good luck with finishing your unread series! Do you have a lot of them? How are you doing? 🙂
    No wonder you say Harry Potter, it’s amazing ❤️
    I’ve been hearing about Sweet/Vicious everywhere but still don’t know what it’s about and haven’t actually started. I guess I should soon…
    OMG, episode VII from Star Wars was soooo good. I was so scared but Rey was amazing!
    Of course typoing really fast is a skill! Not everybody can do it, right? And you can, so it’s a skill you have! I don’t even know how many words per minute I can type haha
    Gonna save some of your favourite posts to check soon 🙂
    OMG, I’m nominated, I can’t believe it ❤️❤️❤️ Aaaaaawwww, you’re so sweet! I’m going to visit those other nominees too, thanks again 🙂

  3. Thanks so much for the tag Lauren. I’ve never seen this one before and I’ve certainly never been tagged in it either so I’m looking forwards to getting around to it (though I am really behind on tags at the moment I’m afraid!)
    I loved reading your answers as well. Inej would make the perfect Hunger Games companion, and maybe Kaz as well to come up with the best plans to get you to the end in one piece. Also I would love to be able to visit Hogwarts, or Camp Half-Blood, or Red London, or basically any fantasy world I’ve read about to date (except Westeros, and Panem)!
    Oh Parks and Rec is one of my all-time favourite TV shows I just love comedies that make me laugh and Parks and Rec is the best of the best. I feel like I need to go back and re-watch some old episodes now.
    Great questions Lauren, I can’t wait to answer them and thanks again for the tag! 😀 ❤

  4. Aww, thanks for tagging me. It’s been too long since I’ve done a tag, and it’s my New Years Res to do some and catch up! (I would have the monkey 🐒 hands too…who wants a giraffe neck?)

  5. Okay this tag award is amazing! The badge is so pretty as well. 😍 Thank you so, so much for nominating me Lauren! ❤️☺️ I’m with you on the dystopian or fantasy world. We pretty much are living inside a dystopia so give us all the fantasy world magic now 😅
    Reeses Cups absolutely count as Dessert! Speaking of those.. I need to find more stores here that sell them 🤔 How can you type that fast?! 😳 I just tested how fast I type and am at 60 words per minute, which already took all my concentration 😂 Can’t wait for all the posts you have in store this year 😊
