I haven’t done a tag in forever. I’ve been receiving a lot of ARCs and that has taken up a lot of my time and energy. So I decided to do a little fun tag/award that I was nominated for by Elise. Which, if you haven’t, you guys got to check out her blog. She is also so honest. I always look to her reviews when I read LGBTQIA+ books to make sure they aren’t harmful to the community.
Now without further ado, here is the sunshine blogger award!
- Thank the person(s) who nominated you and link back to their blog(s)
- Answer the 11 questions sent by the person(s) who nominated you
- Nominate 11 new blogs and write 11 questions for them
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post (I…uh…don’t have the logo. Just picture the sun. No one will notice!)
a book you love from a genre you don’t read?
I didn’t actually expect to like this book. I found it on Kindle Unlimited and thought sure why not? It has such a beautiful cover and I thought it was going to be more creepy than mystery. But I’m glad it was a mystery instead.
favorite netflix original series?
So when I read this question I thought it just said netflix series so I was going to put Supernatural because I’m obsessed. Then I saw that it said Netflix original. I thought okay, that’ll be easy. I watch a lot of Netflix. Fun fact of the day: the shows I watch are not Netflix original shows. This is literally the only one out of the huge list I found that I watch. Sad, I know.
most anticipated debuts?
I know this says debuts but I think I will pick just one since there are 11 questions. I didn’t know this was a debut book, I was just generally excited to see a book about Lizzie Borden. I found that case to be really fascinating. I have read mixed reviews on it, so I’m hesitant but I still can’t wait to read this for myself.
a few series you’re not sure about continuing?
I picked these three because they were the most disappointing to me. I couldn’t stand Tella in Caraval and the second book is about her, so we will see if I go through with reading the second book. Abby was a manipulative b word in Beautiful Disaster and treated Jamie really poorly. The second book is his side of the story so I might read it. The Crown’s Game premise was really cool but just fell flat plus it had a really weird love triangle that I didn’t think need to be in there.
best format for book-to-screen adaptations?
I watched the movie first before I read the book. I was instantly in love and when I found out that it was a book, I was ecstatic. I then promptly read the book and fell even more in love with both book and movie. I will forever state that everybody needs to read the book and watch the movie. Charlie is a precious human and needs to be protected at all cost.
note: while editing this, I realized the question said best format for book to screen adaptations. this is what I get for not reading clearly. I already put in a lot of work for this question so the short answer is movies because I have only ever seen one play of a short story that we didn’t even finish in school so I’m not counting it.
character you like that everyone hates?
I may be wrong here but I think there is a general consensus that Gale isn’t well liked in The Hunger Games trilogy. I think because of the way he acted toward Katniss when she had to pretend to love Peeta. True, he did act like a child but I still think he was a really good thing in Katniss’ life. He taught her how to be an actual human instead of an ice queen. And I can appreciate that.
villain that deserves redemption?
I didn’t really get a chance to know the Darkling in the Grisha universe because I spent too much time being irritated with Alina and Mal. I think he really wasn’t the villain and having a redemption story would be awesome to see.
fave noncanon ship?
You can’t tell me that this coupling of Draco and Hermione has never crossed your mind! Really? Am I the only one who shipped them together? They were perfect for each other in every way. Hermione could soothe Draco’s rough edges and teach Draco that blood status isn’t everything. In turn, Draco could teach Hermione to be proud of who she was and how to not let people get to her.
Honestly, any sort of candy and a Monster energy drink. Unhealthy? Yes. They are called snacks for a reason, people!
underrated fave booktuber?
Uh oh. Honesty time. I don’t watch booktubers. It was one of the things I could never really get into. When I go on Youtube, I use it to watch gamers like TheRadBrad and Markiplier and the Game Grumps.
delightfully evil villain?
This one I kind of struggled with this one. Lately a lot of the books that I’ve been reading don’t have any villains or they are morally grey, which really doesn’t make them a villain. So I decided to go with the ole standby of Voldemort. He’s a villain that really is just pure evil.

Oh no. I now have to tag 11 people. And since this is an award, I can’t cop out and just say everybody do this if you want. The struggle is real. So I apologize for those that have already been tagged in this or don’t want to do it. Honestly, no hard feelings if you want don’t.
