Sunshine ReadingIf you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?

WOW! Ummmm I’d love to sit down and talk with Victoria Schwab about how she writes so many great books! She seems like such a nice person and I’d love to get writing tips from her!

What is one thing about you that someone would be surprised to know?

Don’t know if this is surprising but I’ve found some people give me weird look when I tell them— I like abandoned places and urban exploration! I love to learn the history of places, why they became abandoned, and seeing people explore the abandoned ruins. Side plug: if you’re also interested in a similar thing check out Bright Sun Films on Youtube! They have great abandoned videos with history and videos actually exploring sites. I love Disney history so their recent video on Discovery Island is one of my favorites.

If you starred in a reality TV show about your life, what would it be called?

Boring nerd girl struggles to juggle school and blogging while being forever single…

Wait! No, let me try that again… Smol potato tries to find the meaning of life while stuck in the trashiest state in the US…

Hmmm… I MEANT, FEARSOME DRAGON VAMPIRE FAE GOES ON AMAZING ADVENTURES!

^^^ Definitely that last one

What quote do you live by?

“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.” From A Darker Shade of Magic. If you’ve seen my favorite quotes post, then you already know why I love this one. But, in short, it is a perfect description of the adventurous side of me and my love for travel.

Do you prefer to write in pen or pencil?

PEN ALL THE WAY! Idk I just rather scratch stuff out than erase. Unless I’m drawing, then I prefer pencil 😊

Sunshine Reading 2What do you hope to accomplish by book blogging? Do you have an ultimate goal, doing it just for fun, etc?

I want to just make bookish friends and discuss books! If I ever inspire someone to pick up a book because of my ramblings… that would make me the HAPPIEST potato! I also love being able to talk to authors!

What’s one thing you’d like to do before you die?

Backpack across Europe! I’d love to be able to leave the US and see more countries! I’d also love to travel to all Disney parks. And I want to swim across Bay Lake and sneak onto Discovery Island in Disney World and somehow not get eaten by alligators in the process… (<-Shhhh! Don’t tell Disney that)

Do you plan on going to college, are you currently in college, or have you graduated from college? If so, any tips? (Sorry, just a bit curious haha)

I’M GONNA BE A FRESHMAN THIS YEAR! I’m writing this on my second to last day before moving in. By the time this comes out, I’ll have been moved in for a week and classes will be starting tomorrow!

Have you met any authors?

I’ve actually met a few! Tahereh Mafi, Ransom Riggs, Claudia Gray, Kiera Cass, Kiersten White, Veronica Scott, Veronica Rossi. I even met Sarah J Maas freshman year, back before I read any of her books!SJM

SOME AUTHORS I’D LOVE TO MEET! Alexandra Bracken, Cassandra Clare, Neal Shusterman, Adam Silvera, VICTORIA SCHWAB!

OH! and Shannon A Thompson and Sierra Abrams (Ik they’re smaller authors but GET YOUR BUTTS TO LOUISIANA GOSH DARNIT!)

What’s your favorite animal?

A WEASEL! AKA my patronus!

DID YOU KNOW WEASELS DO WAR DANCES!

WEASEL

OH AND BATS! BATS ARE ADORABLE!

Second week in a row with a bat gif… YOUR WELCOME ANGELA!

Sunshine Reading 3If you could kidnap an author and have them write never ending books for you, who would you kidnap?

VICTORIA SCHWAB! She writes the most FABULOUS books and I want her to write books forever!!!

(But I would most definitely not kidnap an author and make her write books for me… pshhhh nahhhhh… I would neverrrr…)

suspicious

If you could make on cover from a novel – the only cover you have for the rest of your books, which would it be?

 THE ORIGINAL DIVINERS COVER! IT’S SO GORGEOUS AND NOW IT’S $40 ON AMAZON… CURSE YOU COVER CHANGES!

Guilty pleasure TV Show?

Any competition show. I actually enjoy putting The Next Food Network Star on in the background while I’m doing stuff. I don’t know, it just makes good background noise.

Oh, and Dance Moms. I know it’s a terrible completely staged show, but I love it! AND I JUST REALIZED THERE’S NEW EPISODES OUT! MUST WATCH!!!

What is one book you’d like every version of?

Probably Vicious by Victoria Schwab because it’s my favorite! Or I’d love all the many editions of the Harry Potter books! I have two editions but I want MORRREEEE! (But that’s expensive)

One type of bookish merch that you wish you could collect for each book?

So I’m not a big collector of merch/swag just because it usually ends up sitting on my shelf and never being used. I rather that stuff go to someone who will really cherish it. If I do get swag, I like bookmarks and more unique things like the trading cards that were released with Vicious (k I’ll stop talking about Victoria Schwab now… maybe… no promises 😊)

 

Sunshine Reading 4What is your favorite T.V. show?

I really love Daredevil on Netflix. The 13 Reasons Why Netflix show was pretty amazing. One of my favorites since I was little is Lost, which does get kinda meh towards the middle, but I still love it.

When did you start your blog?

THIS IS A SEMI LONG STORY! But basically, I used to have a bookstagram. I posted on there and saw people who had their own blogs and posted reviews. I began writing reviews and posting them on Instagram, until I eventually started a blog with blogger. Finally, in June, I switched to this current site on WordPress and I love it!

So, short answer, in June.

Besides reading and blogging, what are your other interests?

Other than the previously mentioned abandoned places, FLAGGING! I was on my high school color guard for three years and am now on a college guard so it’s safe to say that I love throwing a flag in the air.

Do you drink anything while you read?

Ummm water… or soda. That’s usually it. Nothing special.

Who are your favorite book bloggers or booktubers?

YEAH I CAN SPOTLIGHT SOME FABULOUS PEOPLE!

Angela @Egg Reader / Julianna @ Blots of Ink and Words / Cait @ Paper Fury / Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books / Fernanda @ Wanderlust Reader / Flavia @ Flavia The Bibliophile

AND SO MANY MORE!

(I don’t really watch Booktubers… opps)

Do you have a pet? If so, what animal and what is their name?

I HAVE TWO DOGGIES! They’re both chiweenies and are usually called Girlweenie and Boyweenie around the house (but their names are actually Cheyenne and Lucky…) Cheyenne also goes by ‘demon puppy’ and ‘cray cray’. She’s sweet, unless she doesn’t know you… then she’s insane.

Sunshine Reading 5What are some simple pleasures you enjoy?

I’m a major introvert so I just love my alone time. Just sitting in my room with a good book and some music is one of my favorite ways to spend my time.

Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?

Either Broadway music (usually Dear Evan Hansen) or Bastille

What’s the most stereotypical thing people would say about your country?

Either that we’re all fat or that we’re sue happy. Both of these are 100% true!

What’s your favorite historical person?

Alexander Hamilton is pretty cool

    Oh! If you’re backpacking through Europe one day, then you MUST come to Lithuania too. I want to see you! You can totally sleep over for a bit. BOOK BLOGGER MEETUPS!!
    Wow! I never knew flagging was a thing? But it seems like SUCH a cool sport to do! And absolutely beautiful. Do you have any videos of yourself in performances that you could send me? This is super awesome, I’m super impressed 🙂
    Yay! Thank you so much for mentioning me, and, well, loving me xD xD it’s so rewarding hearing that 🙂 sorry I may visit your blog only occasionally! Just busy 😦 but I never forget to think about you, if that counts for anything 😀 (now I’m just scrambling here xD)

    1. Ahh thanksss!
      I want to see whatever countries I can so I’ll be sure to do that! AND A BLOGGER MEET UP WOULD BE SO FUN!
      Lol yeah It’s technically called Color Guard but I joke calling it flagging. I think I have a video that I could send you or link you to, I’ll look for that and DM you on twitter 🙂 I love it because it’s fun and it’s kinda a way to bring a visual element to music. I agree that it’s really beautiful
      It’s k! I’m totally behind on reading blog posts right now bc I’ve been SUPER busy this past week but hopefully I can mostly catch up
      Good to know that your a dragon! *high five fellow dragon*

  2. Awww I’m so honoured you recommended my blog!! THANK YOU, KIND BEAN!! *blushes* 😜 Also I loved all the VE Schwab appreciation here! SHE IS THE BEST. ❤️ And it is seriously cool that you throw flags in the air like sport-like?!? Talents! Also I’m really glad you call your pets by a lot of different names. Me TOO.😂😂 My dog is named Atticus but usually I call him At, Cactus, or hey you evil force. For some reason he still answers…😂

    1. YOU’RE WELCOME YOU FABULOUS DRAGON!
      Victoria Schwab is GREAT! I’m so glad her books have been getting more attention lately! 🙂
      Throwing flags is pretty cool (but sometimes painful… right now I look like an abused child from all my bruises… XD) I’ve realized lately that a lot of places don’t actually have color guards (or they aren’t big there) but it’s super fun!
      “Hey you evil force” basically describes my dogs XD
