Bookish questions & answers with the Sunshine Blogger Award

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope your week was off to a nice start. Today I’m glad to be back with another set of fun questions to answer…

I have the lovely May to thank for tagging me for the Sunshine Blogger Award – her questions were a lot of fun to answer…I hope you’ll like reading these!

  • If you could be an author, who wouldΒ you be?

That one’s a hard question to answer already…I kind of want to pick Morgan Matson because she’s such a good contemporary writer and her travel pictures on Instagram are awesome. I feel like she’s totally my kind of person.

  • What book(s) do you wish you wrote?

Oh, so many books. I wish I could have written books like I’ll Give You The Sun, The Forbidden Wish or The Raven Boys. So good, with characters so well-developed, magical and powerful words and world-buildings. They are book goals to me.

  • How fast of a reader are you?

I’m not that fast since I can never read one book per day. I read on average a book per week, so I guess I’m okay?

  • Which book character would you totally want to meet, but fear might kill you?

This is SUCH a hard question because honestly, why would I want to meet someone that might potentially harm me?! Well, I guess us bookworms are crazy so maybe I’d go with Holland, from the Shades of Magic series. He is such a complex character, he has to be fascinating.

  • What books have you cried over (if any)?

I have cried over a lot of books – I’m very emotional when it comes to reading books, or watching movies. The last books I can remember crying over are The Sky is Everywhere and 180 seconds.

  • What do you do besides reading?

I love watching tv shows as well, at the moment some of my favorites are Jane The Virgin, Switched At Birth, The Royals, Baby Daddy and more. I also write whenever inspiration is good enough to come knocking on my door. I also try and be awesome as much as I can, have nervous breakdowns and think about these two below (and cry).

  • How would you react if all the books suddenly disappeared from the world?

CRY? How else can I react, really?

  • Book-to-movie adaptations: Like or hate?

It depends, I guess. I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to this, because upon hearing the news, I feel really happy and excited but also nervous – and more than often I end up being disappointed by the result, never as good as the book is.

  • What book have you been dying to read, but haven’t gotten the chance to?

I’m dying to read The Love Interest at the moment. There is so much hype around that book and it sounds so, so good, I can barely hold my excitment. Same goes for Romancing the throne.

  • Would you rather get paid to read books, review books, or blog about books?

I thought this would be a hard question to answer, but I find myself drawn to the blogging part. Too bad I know it’s impossible haha.


Cry? Scream? Run to get a hug? Run away? Honestly, if that ever happened I think I’d be too nervous to muster the courage to ask for an autograph, a picture or anything. I’d just STARE.

Which books do YOU wish you could have written? What’s the latest book that made you cry?

What would YOU do if you met your favorite writer? Let’s chat in comments!

  1. I’ve only cried over four books ever, and the most recent one was The Midnight Star by Marie Lu. SO BITTERSWEET! And haha, honestly, I probably would be waaaay too nervous as well to even talk to that author. But I think I would force myself to walk up to him/her (or my parents would) and like get an autograph. And ask questions. And take a selfie. XDD

    1. Ohh, well…is that weird that you made me want to read this book now? Haha, HOW WAS IT?!!
      Haha yes, I’d force myself just as well but I think I’d be stunned for like a good two minutes before actually moving haha πŸ˜›

  2. Great post for this tag Marie. πŸ˜€ ❀ Oh if I could write like Jandy Nelson or Maggie Stiefvater that would be amazing! They're both so talented when it comes to character development (I haven't gotten around to The Forbidden Wish myself so can't really say much about that book, but if it's on your list I'm sure it's amazing.)
    I'd definitely cry is all the books went missing from the world, and then go on a quest to find them again and bring them back! Also I am so so excited for The Love Interest as well. The hype surrounding that one has just made me more and more excited with each passing day! πŸ˜€
    Again great answers for this tag, I loved reading them all! πŸ™‚

  3. Lovely answers, Marie! I would be AMAZED if anything half as good as The Raven Boys comes out of my brain… that book is just so wonderfully written with its characters and plot, I’ve no idea how Stiefvater does it.

    I’m also dying to read The Love Interest! I feel like it’s been getting more hype than other future releases, which is great… but can also be a double-edged sword if it ends up disappointing later on. Fingers crossed, though. ❀

    1. Hahaha oh yes, I’d be amazed just as well if that ever happened to me. The universe is soo…unique ❀
      Yeah exactly, that's what's scaring me a bit, it is SOOOOO hyped at the moment…I will probably wait and not read it right away on release day anyway ahah, maybe things will calm down by then πŸ™‚


  4. MARIE WHY DO YOU HAVE TO REMIND ME OF BROGELIO AFTER THIS WEEK’S EPISODE I HAVE NOT RECOVERED YET 😭😭😭 Then again I’ll never recover so remind me all you want πŸ˜‚ I really want to read The Love Interest as well! It sounds so interesting.

    1. RIGHT??? I didn’t even do it on purpose, I planned this before watching the episode….. I’m SO SAD, also I cried. Ooops. But… I LOVE THEM.
      It does sound very good indeed! Thank you, Michelle! πŸ™‚

  5. I’ll Give You the Sun, The Forbidden Wish and The Raven Boys are all SO AMAZING ahah I totally would’ve loved to write those. πŸ˜€ The Love Interest seems so good! I can’t wait for that release. And being paid to blog would be magicalllll omg though all the options are tempting. Being paid to do something we love is just the DREAM. ❀ Loved reading your answers, Marie!

  6. Great answers! Oh man. I guess if I was an author, I’d love to be Rainbow Rowell. I just adore her characters. What book do I wish I wrote? Yikes. Hm. Probably Harry Potter so I could say it’s my own brainchild! The last book which made me cry was Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca– so heartbreaking!!! And I was shocked at how attached to those characters I became. Wowza.

    1. Ohhh what a great answer, I LOVE Rainbow Rowell’s characters just as well so, so much ❀ ❀ Also, I kind of want to read that book, knowing just how attached you grew to its characters…Thank you for this ahah πŸ™‚

    1. OH yay, so happy you like both of these shows! Are you watching the episodes as they air? Are you as sad as I am about Jane The Virgin haha.
      Hahahaha, I’d do the exact same thing, I’m sure πŸ˜›


  7. I did meet one of my favorite writers (V.E. Schwab) and I handed her a banana lol There is some back story to this: the previous week before the event V had posted on twitter asking why all her fans bring her treats like candy and chocolate, what ever happened to fruit? Hence the banana lol

  8. Morgan Matson writes lovely books- excellent choice! haha Holland would be fascinating- but yes, he could be pretty dangerous- I’d only want to meet him if I had some serious protection against him (basically Kell or lila in the room). I really really want to read 180 seconds at some point- and Love Interest for that matter!! Haha yes- I’d stare too!! Awesome post!


    1. Haha yes, I guess I’d want to meet Holland but have a protection squad around me, just in case he got mad or something ahah.
      I really hope you’ll read and love 180 seconds just as much as I did, it was such an amazing story.
      Thank you so much! I wish you a lovely May!! ❀
