Monday, 24 November 2014

Thank you to Bernadette from Bumbling Bookworm for nominating me! It's a great other initiative 

The Rules:
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  • Put the award logo on your blog.
  • Answer the ten questions they have sent you.
  • Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
  • Nominate ten people.

What’s your favourite book outside of the genre you read most often?

I most often read YA, but outside of that I don't mind reading adult contemporary fiction or thrillers, and I really enjoyed Walking on Trampolines by Frances Whiting. 


Any TV shows in particular that you’re addicted to right now?

Not right at the moment, but I can't wait until Downton Abbey comes back on! - I'm a big fan of historical dramas. 

Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring? And why?

My birthday is in Summer which is nice, and aside from the heatwaves which we get here in Australia, it's still a great season to go to the beach, eat lots of mangoes and relax in the holidays. 

Do you have a favourite place to read?

On my bed or the couch - but I've always wanted to try reading in a hammock or something. 

What’s your favourite book to visual adaptation?

Ooh good question! I can't pick just one, so I'd have to go with Gone Girl and Catching Fire. 

Do you listen to audiobooks and, if so, where do you get them from?

I haven't actually listened to an audiobook before but it's definitely something that I want tot try out soon. 

What’s your favourite quote?

Once again it's hard to choose, but I love the saying 'A reader lives a thousand lives'. 

Most recent holiday? Any more planned?

I haven't been on a holiday in a while, but The Blue Mountains is where I last went. I don't have anything planned right now, but we'll see!

Sweets or savouries?

I do have a sweet tooth, but savouries have always been more my thing. 

What is the thing you love most about blogging?

Being able to share my passion for reading with you guys and meeting other bloggers to fangirl with!

My Questions:
  1.  If you could travel to a setting in a book, where would it be?
  2. What's your opinion on love triangles?
  3. Do you judge a book by its cover?
  4. What under-rated book have you read that you'd recommend?
  5. Have you ever felt a 'black sheep' when it came to not liking a book that everyone else seemed to have been fangirling about?
  6. Best book boyfriend?
  7. What's your favourite food?
  8. How do you achieve a blogger-life balance?
  9. What's one of your hobbies outside of reading?
  10. What is the biggest thing you've learned about book blogging since starting?


  1. Oooh you should definitely come to the Blue Mountains again and stop by my place :)

    I love summer too, but these 40+ days are killing me. Ice cream is always good, though! I think my favourite season is autumn.

    1. I can't wait to go back again, the scenery is so beautiful. Autumn is lovely too, especially with the cooler change which can definitely be a relief from the scorching summer heat!

  2. I miust admit, I've never seen Downton Abbey before, it doesn't look like my cup of tea though. I'm more of a Walking Dead girl :D I love that! 'A reader lives a thousand lives'. So poignant and incredibly true. Congratulations on the award poppet, so deserving <3

    1. That's fair enough Kelly - I must admit that I've always been intrigued by The Walking Dead (even though it's not something I would usually watch'. Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Congratulations on the award, Genie - and thank you for nominating me! :D

    I love Downton Abbey too - I can't wait for season 5 to come back on TV here. It's finished in the UK, so I don't know what's taking so long! I really need to read and watch Gone Girl sooner than later. :) I also haven't tried an audiobook before, but it's definitely something I need to give a go.

    1. Thanks Ebony, and you're welcome! It always seems to take so much longer for shows to air here which is annoying, but I'm sure Downton will be worth the wait :) Gone Girl certainly is a book that stood out for me this year, hope you like it too.

  4. Thanks so much for nominating me! Sorry it's taken me so long to come around and take a look at this. I've been completely MIA when it comes to blogging but I promise to get back into the game. Especially since hols are coming up ;D I am a summer girl as well and my birthday is also in summer! *high five* I think the bed and the couch is the #1 place to read but I would love to try a hammock as well! Thanks for nominating me, I'll be sure to do this soon

    1. That's no problem Francoise, I know what you mean, I can't wait for holidays either! I'd love to try reading in a hammock too, it's something to tick off the list :)
