The Sunshine Blogger Award

I was nominated to do this one by the lovely Sammie @ Bookshelves & Biros.

Here we go:


What is your happiest memory?

Last summer I went to Edinburgh by myself and got a job at the International Book Festival. Every morning when I would get the bus from the Air B&B I was staying in to the city centre for work, I would feel so proud that for once in my life I actually made an adventure happen for myself.

Which OTP makes you the happiest?

I wrote a post about this recently. A couple I missed out that I’m super into right now is FitzSimmons on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I am, as ever, terrified that one of them is going to die.

In terms of books, it has to be Emmy and Oliver.

I’m a total sucker for the whole lifelong friends turned something else.

How do you like to relax and unwind?

Last night I had the house to myself for the first time in forever. I wrapped myself in many blankets (even once the weather has warmed up my house takes about a month to follow suit) and watched The Vampire Diaries* while eating a giant pot of honey yoghurt.

*Does anyone else sort of think that Matt should have been killed off like four seasons ago? Am I just mean?

What do you find most satisfying about blogging?

The writing.

What’s your spirit animal?


What one piece of advice would you give your younger self?

Have a drink and go and dance, idiot. No one cares if you look stupid.

Tell us about one fictional character who makes you smile?

Mia Thermopolis. Everyone who read The Princess Diaries in their teens should totally be rereading them in their twenties. Trust me on this.

If you could go back in time and live in any era, what would it be?

THE NINETEENTH CENTURY. I would go and spearhead the feminist movement. And have tea with Jane Austen. And hang out with one of those creepy photographers who pose dead people. And go to The Institute for Psychical Research.

I would have so much fun.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?


Do you have any secret talents or party tricks?

None whatsoever.

Well, my thumbs don’t match. One is way shorter than the other.

Give me a quote that makes you happy?

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

I am reading Wild right now.

  1. Ahhh I love your answers so much! It’s so amazingly cool that you went to Edinburgh solo and got a job at the International Book Festival – that must have been an incredible experience! 🙂 I also totally agree with Mia Thermopolis! She’s such a loveable character. 🙂 x

  2. “Have a drink and go and dance, idiot. No one cares if you look stupid.”

    Yes yes yes. On the same vein, I wish I’d let my family and friends take more pictures of me as a teen/young adult. Oh, well.

    Your adventure at the International Book Festival sounds amazing! Glad you made it happen, and that it worked out so perfectly for you. 😀
