The Sunshine Blogger Award XI

Hey everyone!

I’m back with another edition of The Sunshine Blogger Award. This time I was nominated by Dana @DevourBooksWithDana. Thank you so much for thinking of me Dana. Sorry it has taken so long for me to get around to answering your questions.

Also if you guys are not following Dana already then OMG you need to change that right now as she is such a lovely member of the blogosphere who deserves all the follows.

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Questions set by Dana

What is one book you would make everyone read if you could, that is NOT a classic?

OMG NOOOOO!!! It’s the not a classic caveat that gets me!!! I am a girl who LOVES her classics!!! How can I not answer Pride and Prejudice or The Catcher in the Rye or All Quiet on the Western Front or A Tale of Two Cities or Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights or… I could go on!!!!

I think I would probably like to make everyone read Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie because it is a book about how war can pervert even the most good and pure of people, it shows how it changes people and how it leaves nothing but innocent victims in its trail… A truly breathtaking character study.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring. Because there is something so hopeful about Spring… plus I don’t like weather that is super hot or super cold so Spring is pretty perfect!

Where do you prefer to buy your books from?

Local bookshops! I try to buy locally as best as I can.

Do you lend people your books?

Yes… but only one person. My mum. And it’s okay. Because I know where she lives so can always get the book back LMAO!!!!

Do you have a favourite Disney movie and if so, what is it?

The Fox and the Hound. OMG I love it so much. I have probably seen it more than any other film because I used to watch it CONSTANTLY as a little kid… and even still now as an adult…




What is a scent that always brings back a good memory?

The smell of turkey roasting, Christmas Puddings steaming, Christmas Cake baking… Basically any Christmas foodie smells because I am instantly transported back to my childhood and all of the happy memories of Christmases past.

If you had to run a blog about something that wasn’t books, what would it be?

A blog about tennis. I am a HUGE fan of tennis and could happily wax lyrical about forehands and backhands forever!

What is one fact about you that people don’t normally know?

Errrrr I can’t think of one! I think I am pretty much an open book LOL!

If you could meet one author, who would you meet?

So author could be replaced with the word writer…

And writer could mean songwriter…

Can I meet John Mayer then please???

Who is a person you admire and why?

My mum.

I know it could be thought of as a cheesy answer but she’s the greatest person ever and I am the luckiest person because I get to be her daughter.

Where is one place in the world you hope to visit?

And those are my answers! What do you guys think of them? Do you agree/disagree with any of them?

  2. I really need to give Adichie a proper go! I always pick my mum (or even dad) for a person I admire and people always tell me it’s so cheesy but how can I help it if it’s true?! 😂 Great answers, Emer!

    1. Our parents are just the most influential people in our lives and its impossible for me to look beyond either of them. They’re so amazing :))) I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels that way about their parents Dini <333
