  • Nominate 11 other bloggers
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions
  • Let them know you’ve nominated them!



1 When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging in October 2017, so almost 6 months ago.  I was looking at a video from the latest online ALLi conference and an author was talking about how bookblogging was a great way to network.  I never even knew about bookblogs.  I looked some up online and thought wow that looks like fun.  I read a lot but didn’t have an outlet to discuss most of the books I read.  Here was this fantastic world full of people talking books, more books, and even more books!  I was thrilled to discover it and was immediately welcomed into the fold.

2 What is your favourite thing about yourself?

Umm…. Uhh…. Hmm…. I laugh a lot. I’m pretty easygoing that way.

3 What is your favourite bookish quote?

It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.” S. I. Hayakawa

4 If there was a movie about your life, who would you cast as you?

One of my good friends from high school days used to swear I looked like Jennifer Love-Hewitt… I dunno… but I’ll go with that.

5 What was your idea of a dream job when you were younger?

Being a movie director.

6 Name one fictional character that you hate

Easy. Dolores Umbridge!

7 What is your favourite movie?

The Sound of Music and Love Actually

8 Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?

Working less hours but from home doing more creative jobs; and playing chauffeur to three teenage sons… oh my goodness… I will have teenagers!

9 If you could do one thing to change the world, what would it be?

Teach everyone to genuinely respect others.

10 What is your greatest accomplishment to date?

Can I say my sons? I didn’t do that all on my own… but every time one of them does something kind I feel like I’ve accomplished something pretty major.  Our world needs more kind people.

11 What book changed your outlook on life?

Not one book per say… when I discovered Enid Blyton’s magical story worlds, my imagination was unlocked.  There were now endless possibilities for my own stories.  That made me learn to love writing as a child.  I spent many hours reading and creating my own stories after that.


Phew!  I think that brings me to end of my awards backlog.  Spoke too soon.  Lol. Just have the tags to finish now… Thank you for all the wonderful nominations.  It was fun reading your answers and doing the tags myself.


happy saturday

  2. I hope that you’ve been enjoying blogging since you began! I’ve been blogging for *roughly* two years?? (gah i’m old lol ~ really i’m not but it feels like it when i say that) – it’s honestly one of the best things I’ve decided to do in my life. I wouldn’t exchange it for anything. I think we can all agree that Umbridge is just the worst book character – ever created, really!
