Happy Sunday! I have been tagged and awarded for the past few weeks and months and decided to catch up. Today is a double feature of Tags! Enjoy 🙂
I’m pretty sure I was awarded this last year, but better late than never right? Thank you Sophie @ Sophie’s Corner for this award:) I love being able to share more about myself so you all can get to know me a little better.
- Create a new blog post on your blog thanking the person that nominated you, link to their blog, and put in a graphic of the award.
- Answer the questions that were provided, and then share some facts about yourself.
- Create a new set of your own questions for others to answer.
- Nominate others (around ten) and share your blog post with them so they can accept their award! This award is for bloggers with 200 followers or less.
What is your favorite hobby, other than reading or blogging?
I like drawing, and I’m sure some of you already know that. Drawing has always been another outlet to escape reality for me, and I love the feel of a pencil on paper.
Would you rather be rich or famous, and why? (Choose one, not both)
Rich. I’d want to be that sort of person who’s withdrawn themselves from society, who has a lot of money, and lives in a mansion or castle. People will talk about me, spreading rumors. No one will know how I became rich. Children will sneak onto my property and dare each other to touch the front door.
In my mansion, there will be plenty of secret passageways and hidden rooms, especially in the library. I’ll own several dogs and cats, hire maids and caretakers. But I’ll probably end up doing most of the outdoor work myself.
I’d hold grand parties once a year but never attend. Only watch from certain hidden places in my mansion.
If you win the lottery today, what would you do with all that money?
Put it in the bank. I know, not very exciting, but I’m not going to spend it all in one day. I’d probably use the money for school tuition, traveling, and then invest it or build on it for the future.
If you were a muffin, what muffin flavor would you be?
Apple streusel or crumb, I can never remember the name. They’re the glorious muffins from Costco. I think that they are unique because every opinion I have heard from them has been “I don’t like them” or “They’re just not for me” whereas I love them and will always choose them when I have the chance.
If you are on a deserted island and can only choose one non-essential item, what would it be?
A boat or raft to get off the island.
And of course, some interesting facts about yourself!
- I’m the shortest sibling in my family.
- I was also the youngest in my high school class.
- I get claustrophobic in the car if I’m not the one driving.
- I have had only one surgery in my entire life.
- When I grow anxious, the only thing that calms me down is if I light a scented candle. Rearranging my room also helps.
Again, thank you for the award, Sophie:)

Now, onto the Cookie Book Tag! Sadly, I will not be eating any cookies as I write this.
First of all, thank you to Megan @ The Inkwell for tagging me!
Chocolate Chip: A Book that Never Gets Old
Honestly, I could read Queen of the Tearling over and over and over and never grow tired of the story. It has everything I love in a fantasy story: strong heroine, party banter, a mentor who isn’t necessarily given that title but still acts like a father to Kelsea, magic, politics, an evil queen, fight scenes, assassination attempts, origin stories, multiple POV’s, and a good story. One that I will never forget.
Dutch Snowballs: A Book that Gave You an unexpected Surprise
Now, if you haven’t read this story then please be so kind as to skip this answer. I will be spoiling something. You have been warned…
I know. I should’ve seen it coming but I didn’t and I was totally taken by surprised when Maven turned out to be the villain. I felt more sorry for Cal because he lost his father, his mother never loved him, and his brother, who he thought he had a good relationship with, has now turned against him. It wasn’t exactly a nice surprised, but it was still a surprise.
Molasses: A Book with a Character that gets in a Sticky Situation
Avery Rendon never thought she’d ever rule her home planet, but life just gets more and more complicated for her when her planet is attacked, her family is killed or they ran off, and she’s left under the watchful eyes of Gareth Chase. And things just get more and more complicated. Especially in the sequel, Unbroken Fire.
Oreo: A Book Dealing with the Light and the Darkness
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe comes to mind. Aslan being the light and the White Witch being the dark. What I love most about the story and series is that even the good characters have their “dark” moment. They’re not perfect, but you can still easily see who the “light” is and what the “darkness” is.
Sugar: A Book with a Sugary Sweet Villain
Who doesn’t love Humperdinck? A man of confidence, bravado, stoic manner, and who is also a bit of a jerk and sometimes a coward. Who didn’t love it when he was “defeated” at the end and didn’t officially marry Buttercup? Still, he was a fun and memorable character.
Monster: A Book that Confused Your Emotions
The person you think is going to die doesn’t die, yet, and the other person dies, ripping your heart out and forcing it through a shredder, and you don’t know how to feel because the other person will join them at some point, but you don’t want them to.
Snickerdooble: A Book that Made You Laugh
Anything Ellen DeGeneres does or says or writes, has some form of humor to it and this book was no exception. I found myself laughing out loud and people around me wondering what was so funny. I’d definitely recommend checking out her books.
Peanut Butter: A Book with a Nutty Character
Puddleglum comes to mind. I loved that character. He was so fun and I loved his whole attitude toward life and how he came to care for Eustace and Jill.
There you have it! Two lovely tags:) If anyone wants to do the Cookie Book Tag, go right ahead!!
See you next time!
