Happy Wednesday, guys! ☺️🌻
I’m back with part two of my Sunshine Blogger Award post, and more answers to your questions! You can find the first part with my nominations and questions here. I let you in on teenage Lily’s favorite band and other things you may not have expected to find out about me. 😇
01. Why did you start blogging?
I love to write, and I love connecting with others, and screaming about things I’m passionate about (especially books), and blogging seemed like such a great way to do both.
Plus, I love that I can be creative. 🖌
02. Which book are you most excited to read?
03. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
I can be both! But I lean towards being an early bird, because I’m not too fond of the feeling of waking up to half of the day already having passed me by. And it always makes me feel so accomplished, when I can get things done before nine a.m..
04. What is your ideal vacation?
Exploring new places and immersing myself in different cultures, eating good food, spending quality time with people who are important to me, relaxing (or trying to, anyway), and not thinking about stressful things, such as uni (as if).
05. What is one thing that makes you happy?
Knowing that my family and friends are in good health. 😌
01. Who was your first book crush?
I believe it was Axel from Thomas Brezina’s Die Knickerbocker Bande—I shipped him with Poppy, and I still get somewhat wistful, when I think about how they never ended up together down the line, because I adore the friends-to-lovers trope.
Also … I don’t know if I’m the only one who does this, but when it comes to books and movies, I always crush on someone for someone? Pretty much all of my book-boyfriends are part of a ship, and I actually go into (ง’̀-‘́)ง mode when someone dares to try and drive a wedge between any of my OTPs.
02. When did you start reading?
I think I was six years old, but I’m not sure … if musical scores count, a bit earlier. 🎼
03. What is the last book that made you cry?
Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman!
I feel like I’ve been screaming about this one a few times already, but I honestly so rarely come to really love a book, that the ones that get four or five star ratings from me are ones I cherish all the more.
It’s such a gem, and I wish it had existed when I was fourteen/fifteen. It’s a beautiful ownvoices novel that everyone who is Asian and grows up in a non-Asian country, and everyone who has (social) anxiety, will be able to relate to.
04. How many hours do you read per day?
I … don’t know? But I’d love to know how many hours per day you read!
05. If you were a book/movie character, would you be a main or secondary one?
I’d be the main character from my point of view. 😉
Is this is me, slyly evading your question? Maybe.
Who’s your first book crush?
At what age did you start reading? 🤓
Do you cry easily because of books?
