The Outstanding Blogger Award Tag

Who’d have thought I’d get tagged for this barely three months into my blogging journey, but Bibliomavens are a couple of good uns’ and I am ever so thankful 🙂 Seriously, go check out their blog, they do really great book reviews, books to TV discussions and most importantly, upcoming books-to-watch out for lists!

So here’s my answers to their questions:

  1. What has been your most disappointing read ever?

Oh I could list a few in here, but if there’s THAT ONE then it’s The Danish Girl. The movie was excellent and I really really love Eddie Redmayne, and the premise of the book itself is great, but David Ebershoff spends so much time ‘scene setting’ and ‘mood building’ that I really lost interest in the plot after a point.

2. What book would you love to see adapted into a TV show or movie?

I am a strong supporter of ‘Books are better than movies / TV shows’ haaa! But there’s a few screen adaptations that I have loved (Lord of The Rings, The Witcher, Haunting of Hill House). If there’s a book I’d like to see adapted to the screen, it would be ‘The Humans’ by Matt Haig. I think it would go better as a mini-series rather than a movie, but I’d like to think either ways, with the right kind of execution, it would be a delight to watch!

3. If you could flee 2020 into any fictional world, where would you go?

Hobbiton in the Shire! Please take me there!

4. What artist/song do you currently have on repeat?

Alan Walker and the tracks are Faded and Play 🙂

5. What 2021 book release are you most excited for?

Well it would be unfair for me to list the 2021 ARC’s I have already read so I am going with the ARCs I wish I had received – Lore by Alexandra Bracken (Greek Gods, Mythology and Revenge – what more do you need?). The second is First Person Singular by Haruki Murakami.

6. What is your new year’s resolution for 2021?

Oh I have a very simple one for the coming year and it is ‘To read everyday’. It seems easy but it can actually be so hard.

7. What kind of book hero/heroine would you be?

I think I’d most definitely be Arya from Game of Thrones, or Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice 🙂

My Questions:

  2. If there is one book you’d recommend to someone who’s looking to ‘get into the habit of reading’ which book would that be?
  3. Which book did you pick up expecting it to be disappointing and it ended up being an amazing read?
  4. Do you judge a book by its cover?
  5. Is there a book-to-screen adaption where you felt the Movie / TV Show was better than the book?
  6. What is one non-bookish hobby of yours?
  7. What is one book-inspired real life location you’d love to visit?

No pressure at all to take part in the tag, however if you do, I’d love to see your answers 🙂

  1. Love your answers! I would also want to run away to Hobbiton. Such a beautiful place to be! I also really wanted an ARC for Lore. I read some sample chapters off NetGalley and am really interested to see where that one goes. Love these answers and love you blog!! – Amber
