Last month, the lovely Dini @ DiniPandaReads nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! I absolutely love Dini, who I affectionately call my bookish twin since we have so much in common when in comes to our taste in books. We tend to like the same books and have similar opinions. She’s fun and writes the most awesome posts, so you should totally check out her blog if you haven’t already. Thank you so much for the nomination, Dini!
I was also nominated a few days later by Hayden at Following Good Books, who has an awesome blog and reviews a range of genres. I strongly suggest checking out her blog if you haven’t seen it yet!

Describe your current read in five words.
Witchy, funny, Italian, spooky, sexy.
What is your go-to comfort genre?
Fantasy, for sure.
What’s your favorite song of the moment?
Truth Hurts by Lizzo or WAP.
What are your top three favorite reads of 2020 so far?
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang, The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen, and Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert.
Is there one book that you would do anything to get a special signed edition of?
Not that I can think of off the top of my head.
What book really disappointed you this year?
Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi. I loved Children of Blood and Bone, but the sequel just didn’t do much for me, and I ended up DNFing it.
What’s your favorite snack to eat while reading?
Either cherries or popcorn.
Because 2020 has been … 2020, what’s one thing that you really miss doing and want to do again as soon as it’s possible?
I really miss spending time with my friends. I used to meet up with my friends pretty consistently and either go out to dinner or have dinner and drinks at one of our houses, and I really miss that.
Is there a (sub)genre that is an absolute no-no for you?
Horror. I’m the biggest wuss, and I don’t read or watch anything that is outright scary.
If you could visit one fictional world, where would you go?
Ahhhh there’s so many cool places to pick from that it would be so difficult to just choose one! I’d probably want to go to Prythian — I’d love to see the places!
Which five characters would you spend a day in Disneyland with?
I’d want to go with people who are going to keep things fun, so I would want to invite Nina Zenik (Six of Crows), Bryce Quinlan (House of Earth and Blood), Hypnos (The Gilded Wolves), Peter Grant (The Rivers of London series), and Dani Brown (Take a Hint, Dani Brown).
