  4. List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post/or on your blog.

QUESTIONS:

1, What are your top three favourite book covers?

This is really hard as I absolutely love to love book covers. If I had to pick 3 I would go with the entire ‘To All the Boy’s I’ve loved before’ series. They are seriously so beautiful just like the books themselves.

2. Which Harry Potter character do you relate to the most?

This one is quite hard but I would say Luna Lovegood. She was always my favourite because she had such a free spirit but I also thought she was really sharp, fearless and loyal and always there throughout the series. I like to think that I am a bit like her:)

3. Favourite reading snack?

I actually don’t eat when I read, so I don’t really know. I might occasionally have like chips or biscuits or an apple, something small to sustain me:)

4. What are your top five favourite authors?

Zoe: This is way to hard to answer. I would go with the obvious J.K Rowling, Kasie West, Jenny Han, Jodi Picoult & Enid Blyton (because I loved Faraway Tree). I’ve probably missed some I really love, these were just the first 5 to come to my head.

5. Have you ever written any fan-fiction?

Zoe: No I haven’t and I don’t generally read any either. I don’t consider myself a good writer so I don’t think I would like it either.

6. What book to you tend to recommend to people the most?

Zoe: I hardly ever recommend books to people because I always worry they aren’t going to like it. If I had to I would recommend ‘The Martian’ by Andy Weir because I don’t think you can go wrong with it.

7. If you could get any book made into a film/television show, which would it be?

Zoe: I’m actually so excited that ‘To All The Boy’s I’ve Loved Before’ by Jenny Han and ‘The Hate U Give’ by Angie Thomas are both being turned into movies as these were the top 2 on my list!

8. Who’s your no.1 book boyfriend/girlfriend?

Zoe: Probably Peter from ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”. Sorry I know I have mentioned this book a lot in this tag but he is just perfect.

9. What’s your reading goal for 2018? Are you on target so far?

Zoe: My reading goal was 35 books this year because I know I am not going to have a lot of time to read. I read 6 books in January which was a good start but have only read 1 book this month which I know is really bad so I’m going to need to pick up to keep on target.

10. What’s your favourite read of 2018 so far?

Zoe: It is a total tie between ‘The Hate U Give’ by Angie Thomas and ‘The Martian’ by Andy Weir. They were both amazing in their own way.

11. What’s your favourite type of blog posts to make?

Zoe: I would definitely say tags as they are always so different and I love answering questions:)

MY QUESTIONS:

  1. Which is one book remind you of each of the seasons?
  2. What book can you read so many times and never get bored of?
  3. Which song do you relate to your favourite book?
  4. What do you do when you’re in a reading slump?
  5. What is the longest book you have ever read (if you can remember)?
  6. What was the last book you added to your TBR?
  7. What was the last book you gave 5 stars and the last book you gave 1 star?
  8. Which books have you read in one sitting?
  9. Last book you DNF?
  10. How long does it take you to write your blog posts?
  11. What book would you love to be turned into a movie?

Annike’s Favourite 5 Books of 2017!

Annike: Hey guys, so similarly to last year, Zoe and I are going to do 2 separate posts that’ll go up together for our favourite books of the year. So these are our last blog posts of 2017 – which is crazy. This year I read 94 books in total. 22 of which were audiobooks (!) and the rest which I read in hard cover. This was actually the first year I started listening to books and they were great considering I have so little time to properly read. And surprisingly I only had 6 books that I have 5 stars, so either I’m getting a bit stingy or my reading year wasn’t as good as it was last year. So without further ado, let’s get onto my favourite books of 2017 and some honourable mentions at the end. (more…)

The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan

Annike: Hey guys! It’s been a long time since I’ve been on here with a review, but even though I can’t yet proclaim myself out of my reading slump – I am really trying to get back into reading as the holidays are now upon us! This week I have a book that’s a little different from my usual ones mainly because it is more of a book of poems than an actual novel and is called The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan. So without further ado let’s get onto it. (more…)

November Wrap Up and December TBR ~ 2017

Annike: Hey guys, so we are just about to get to the end of the school year and then we’ll be back on WordPress a bit more frequently. Zoe and I didn’t read too many books this month so I figured we’d combine our Wrap Up and TBR posts for last month and this month to fill you all in on November and our plans for December. Let’s get onto it. (more…)
