The Sunshine Blogger Award Q&A

 I was given the Sunshine Blogger Award by hotshotheadlines, so thank you so much. I honestly think this is my first Award, not counting the goat show participation medal that everyone got. Anyways. These are the eleven questions I had to answer:

Picture of medal

Do you have a favorite sports team?

Nope, sports do not interest me much. 

What movie are you most excited about for 2018?

I heard that The Miseducation of Cameron Post was coming out as a movie then, and if that’s true I am so excited. Hopefully the adaptation will do the book justice.

If money was no object, what would be your dream job?

Stunt pilot, or actress. Unfortunately I’m not brave enough for the first and not talented enough for the second. It would also be amazing to be a professional writer.

If you could do your school experience over again, would you have changed your field of study? If so, what would you pick?

I’m still in high school. But there is SO much about PreK that I would change…

What is your favorite breed of dog?

Definitely Bedlington Terriers. Look them up.

Do you have a dream pet(s)?

I’ve always wanted goats, and a huge snake. I realize that both are unrealistic, though.

If you could embark on a week-long trip in the United States, where would you go?

I would go to California. I’ve been there once, and it was so fun and people are so friendly there.

What’s your favorite breakfast food(s)?

I know this makes me evil, but I don’t really like breakfast food. Maybe cereal?

If you could meet any author, who would you choose, and why?

Probably Adam Silvera, I really love his book More Happy Than Not and it would be great to just talk to him about life and sexuality and writing. Or like, Shakespeare.

Is there a particular time period that you would want to live in?

This one is really hard. I like the romance of the 20th century, but I think I would really miss modern comforts. It would be cool to just visit the future and see how bad it is for a day or two, though.

Do you have a favorite vacation or trip from your childhood?

Probably when I went to Mexico for school. That was just really awesome, the views, the weather, the people we met. All great.

How I Choose Books Tag

Hi everyone, this is the How I Choose Books Tag- describing how I find the books I read. I first saw it at thriceread.

1. Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up the  book in the first place?.

I think I found The Bell Jar through a list of books everyone should read, and it’s true. I got it for a Hanukkah present, and loved it.

How To Get A Girl Pregnant 

First of all, this is not a sex guide. This book is the story of a butch Chicana lesbian- Karleen- who wants more than anything to get pregnant. I didn’t think much of this sypnopsis, just saw it on iBooks for a car ride and it looks short and easy. But halfway though I was rooting for the main character so hard, we have little in common but the book made me sympathize with her in a way that I forgot a book could.

The Rapid Fire Book Tag

“Salutations.”

-Charlotte’s Web

When I saw this book tag- my first- and decided to do it, the first place I saw it was on bookendsandendings.

Ebook or physical book?
In fifth grade I made a presentation on why I believed Ebooks should all be burned. Now I occasionally read books online, but I still prefer paper.

Why You Should Read 226 Pages of Nothing

Nothing by Janne Teller explores questions of meaning in the story that shows how horrible seventh graders can be. This is one of the strangest books I’ve ever read, but it feels terrifyingly realistic.

Nothing matters. I have known that for a long time. So nothing is worth doing.

I just realized that.

Pretty fun, right?

9 Valentine’s Day Reads for when you’re happy, sad, or lovesick:

9. Fangirlimage

This story within a book by Rainbow Rowell is a cute, classic take on first loves, fanfiction, and college. Any Harry Potter fan should read it for the Harry Potter references and throwbacks. The plot centers around a shy college freshman named Cath, who is an avid Baz and Simon shipper, an identical twin, and about to fall in love.

Why I love you- The light tone and the two love stories.
