Sunshine Blogger Tag

I’m no longer evacuated! We have power! Our house isn’t destroyed!

I am approximately 1 million books behind on reviews, so maybe I’ll get around to that when I’ve settled the rest of my life and have any brain space. But for now, a fun tag!

I saw this tag on Avalinah’s Books and she opened her questions to all her followers.

Fantasy or scifi? Why?

Fantasy, 100%. I like good scifi, but I read far more fantasy. I’m not sure why I like fantasy better, but I’ve always been drawn to the magical. Much more an LOTR girl than a Star Wars fan.

Do you always read alone, or sometimes with others?

Alone, I guess? How would you read with others? I mean, sometimes my husband sits on the couch and reads too, but it’s normally just me.

Hogwarts house!

Slytherin, with some strong Ravenclaw vibes. But definitely Slytherin.

Do you have any weird hobbies, aside from reading? (it’s not a weird hobby, okay.)

Depends on what counts as weird, I guess! I’m a runner. I blog, of course. I binge-watch TV shows. But I think those are pretty normal hobbies. I had more weird hobbies when I was younger.

Did you watch Sailormoon as a kid? (I know… totally random.)


Do you schedule your posts in advance?

Very seldom. If I do, it’s normally not far in advance, just a few days.

Have you ever been on a blogging hiatus, and if so – why?

Not formally, but I’ve definitely disappeared for long stretches of time. Normally just because I needed to focus on school or other real life stuff.

Your favorite [mythological or not] character from a book?

Avalinah, I’m calling you out for committing the same sin as the “favorite book” question. I’ve read thousands of characters!! I can’t choose one favorite. But I tend to like sassy, driven girls or women. I’m a big fan of the way Kristin Cashore and Tamora Pierce write female characters, for example. (In TV, which is sort of cheating the tag, I’m obsessed with River Song.)

Your favorite friendship from a book?

Friendships don’t stand out to me much. I like the Gallagher Girls a lot though. Good group friend dynamics there, with girls who depend on each other for their very lives at times.

Was there ever a story that you feel you’ll never forget the experience of reading? Which one?

Lots, for sure! When I was young, A Little Princess. In Middle Grade, my first few Redwall books were transformative. Graceling was a gutpunch read. There are more, I’m sure, but those are the ones that first come to mind.

  1. I’m so happy your safe. I totally missed the fact that you were in the way of that [shit]storm!! Sorry I missed it! One should honestly know this about their friends 😀

    For me it’s 100% sci-fi! I don’t know why, but I can only read certain fantasy. And high fantasy especially often has too much politics (although one could say the same about sci-fi too, I guess?)

    You DO sometimes read with others 🙂 I mean, at least I do 😀 sometimes me and boyfriend voice read together. Sometimes families voice read together too 🙂 that’s mostly what I meant 😀 but yes, I read on my own most of the time too.

    You’re a Slytherin! But you’re so NICE! HOW??? I think I really don’t understand that house 😀

    Aw, too bad about Sailormoon. It’s totally worth it 😀 you could always try now..?

    Dang, #guiltyascharged! 😀 hm. Must be because I don’t read that much fantasy? For me, the Wyverary stands out so much I just have no question about it 😀

    I think with book friendships, it would be Anne and Diana from Anne of Green Gables for me 🙂 they are just so sweet!

    Glad you enjoyed this 🙂

    • Totally ok! I didn’t make a huge deal out of the storm on social, so it was easy to miss. 🙂

      So yeah, I guess I read with others! We listen to audiobooks together sometimes too, like on trips or around the house.

      I prefer to think of Slytherin less as evil and more just as cunning, resourceful, and ambitious. I’m definitely those things. (With a little bit of evil for good measure.)

      I will certainly try Sailormoon sometime! Just hasn’t happened yet.

      I also thought of Anne & Diana, but I figured that’s a bit cliche, so I had to think of something else!
