Sunshine Blogger Award Pt 4

Greetings readers!

I am truly a horrible blogger. I have been nominated for this award 7 more times after the first 3 times I’ve answered.

I know they say that you should feel no pressure to answer, but I love answering people’s bookish questions! So just to let you know there will be about 3 or more rounds of the Sunshine Blogger award on this blog site!

To make it easier for you and me, I’ll keep my answers really short! Unless it requires rambling!


So for Round 4 I would like to thank the amazing:

Kate @ Melting Pots and Other Calamities for nominating me! She has an incredible blog! Her site focuses on books and webtoons! So if you are into that or have an interest in finding out more on those, you should definitely pay her a visit!

Another huge THANK YOU to Erin @ A Red  Heads Rambling! Another incredible blog, full of wonderful reviews and posts that I hope you all pay a visit and even a follow!

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write then 11 new questions. (I’ll do a few)
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Kate’s Questions!

1. What is a piece of fiction (book/TV show/anime/movie/webcomic) that was difficult to get through, but ultimately worth it?

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas, I just did not want to read that book, but I pushed through!

2. What is a plot twist that you should’ve seen coming, but didn’t?

Three Dark Crowns, specifically Katharine’s ending. Like I knew something was going to go down, I just didn’t think it would be that!

3. Is there a villain or antagonist that you can’t help but call a favorite character? If so, who?

The Darkling. I can’t help it. He is my small, angry, dark bean! ❤

4. What is one thing you usually dislike, but have an exception for? (Example: I usually dislike video games, but I do like…)

I don’t really like to watch sports on TV, but I will make exceptions for the Olympic Games and some World Cup games. Otherwise, I usually just watch the highlights!

5. What is something you’ve been meaning to read or watch for forever?

LITERALLY EVERYTHING

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (I think I say this too often, but I must. Maz will kill me if I do not read this soon!)

6. What is your favorite post from June?

Ahhh June was so long ago, but my Tower of Dawn Cover Reveal Rant was my absolute favourite!

7. Who is your favourite character from whatever you’re currently reading or watching?

I’m currently reading A Forest of A Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao, I’m not that far in but Xifeng is definitely a character I’m taking a liking to!

8. If you had to choose between Netflix or Hulu, which would win?

I have neither. So I don’t really have an opinion….

Whichever makes a great adaptation of The Lunar Chronicles or Six of Crows wins.

9. What is a show, anime, or webcomic that desperately needs another season?

Containment! I need an after the escape season!

10. If you were given the sudden motivation to write and complete something, what genre would it be?

My stories and characters that usually pop up into my head have magic or live in magical worlds…so there is your answer.

11. What are some animations and/or webcomics that you think have some of the best art?

*If this counts* That mini movie they showed before Finding Dory, “Piper”. It was so beautiful and the story is just so cute!! Here is a clip:

5.  What is your Hogwarts house and why were you sorted there?

I haven’t read Harry Potter, so I wouldn’t know!  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

6.  What was your favourite subject at school and what do you think would be your favourite subject at Hogwarts?

Fave subject in school was definitely art! I love to draw and paint so if Hogwarts has any of that, then sign me up!

Reading, blogging, drawing, Carswell Thorne, Cresswell, TLC in general, Narnia, pizza.

8.  What would be the top 3 songs in your perfect blogging playlist?

9.  What Netflix series would you recommend the most?

I don’t watch Netflix…… 😉

10.  What is your favourite season and why?

The opposites. Summer and Winter.
Summer because of the heat and sun and winter because I get to be all cozy and Christmas!!!

11.  Every Disney princess has their trusty side kick. What animal would you pick to be yours?

  1. OMG, RENDZ, YOUR NEW HEADER IS GORGEOUS. SIMPLY GORGEOUS. I love it dearly.

    lol i was cracking up with calling the Darkling a small dark bean?? I can see you’re a Darkling fan then? What is your opinion on Mal, though? And I’m just staring down Hulu and Netflix because I’m determined one of them must do a SOC or Lunar adaptions one day. ONE DAY. And I love the idea of you running around with a fox. It would be epic.

    Wonderful answers, Rendz!! They were quite fun to read. ❤

    • THANK YOU FOR NOTICING!! I’M HOPING TO TWEAK IT JUST A BIT MORE, BUT I DO HOPE TO KEEP IT!

      Yes, picturing the Darkling as a small bean is difficult but I added angry and dark for a reason lol! Mal….welll, I always liked Mal. I knew he had his *problems* in parts of the books, but I knew he was my end game. That however, did not stop me from shipping Alina with other characters too XD
      I have my eyes peeled on any TV network picking up my books for adaptations BECAUSE I NEED THEM TO EXIST!!!!

      Thanks for reading Mandy!!

      • Absolutely! It was literally the first thing I noticed and I’m like, OMG. I LOVE IT.

        Ahahahaha, indeed. Most fitting description, Rendz!! And okay, good to know. Glad you had an end game planned. But Darkling is quite fun. XD
        AND YES. I’m hoping Netflix will see they can make loads with YA books like they did with 13 Reasons Why and just pick up all of our loves.

  2. Um, excuse me. Did you say you love fantasy and you haven’t read Harry Potter? I mean this in the most loving way possible, but GET ON THAT! I’m serious, your quality of life will improve so much!

  3. OMG, Hulu or Netflix seriously needs to get on top of those Six of Crows and Lunar Chronicles adaptations!! I would pay good money to see those as TV shows. And it’s ok, I haven’t read Harry Potter and don’t plan to either so I guess we’re on the same boat. Also, The Darkling will forever be one of my faves! Loved all your answers! Congrats on the award!

    • Yes! I would throw my money at books and tv shows of those books!
      It’s nice to know I’m not alone on this shame boat🙃 *sends high-five*
      The Darkling is a treasure to the Grisha Verse 😍 (despite also being quite a pain to the good guys)
      Thanks for reading!!

  4. IF A LUNAR CHRONICLES SHOW WAS MADE I’D DIE OF HAPPINESS. I loved reading your answers, and I recommend Voltron (Netflix TV show) to you! If you ever get Netflix, YOU’VE GOTTA WATCH IT. It’s really an amazing show! 😀

  5. Ah, thank you for nominating me; I can’t wait to do it!

    And I am 100% on board with the fox/wolf sidekick idea! They’re magical in the way of being such trouble makers and being tough cookies, but also still being so cute!

    And I know this is terrible, but I still haven’t read the Grisha trilogy! I loved Six of Crows, and I’ve had the first Grisha book on my shelf for a few months now, but for some reason I still haven’t gotten to it! I hope to very, very soon, though!

    • You’re very welcome!!! A tough cookie sidekick is exactly what I’m looking for! Couldn’t have said it better myself 🤗 Don’t worry about having not read the Grisha series yet, I’m sure you will one day find the time to do it! And I hope you enjoy it!
      Can’t wait to read your answers!!!

  6. The Darkling really is an interesting character. I only wish he had a bit more pagetime, because I can’t get QUITE as interested in the character as most people do (sigh) Maybe when I get to the last book…
    Oh gosh, Netflix or Hulu doing an SoC adaptation would be a dream come true!
    Thanks for answering my questions!
