222Thank you to the Ayunda from Tea and Paperbacks for the nomination!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them about their nomination.
  4. Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do.

5 Facts About Me:

  • I like to think that I’m kind of crafty. I’ve fixed up a few pieces of cheap furniture into some beauties. For instance, I turned this hideous yellow end table into a classy, beautiful piece.


  • As a kid, I used to be very anti-girly, but I really love pink now (though it ties with turquoise as my favorite color).
  • I wish I was a writer. I admire authors for their ability to think up stories. I would love to write a book someday, but don’t have any good story ideas!
  • I love my freckles and automatically dislike any book/movie/person that bashes freckles.
  • Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I could eat breakfast foods all day every day.

I nominate:

  1. What is your favorite movie and who is your favorite actor?

3 Ninjas and I’m not a huge movie buff, so I don’t really have a favorite actor!

  1. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation (like the movie Jumper)

  1. What are the top three places you’d like to travel to?

Greece, London, Australia

  1. Who is your biggest inspiration/role model and why?

My grandpa because he always put his family first, lead in the gentlest way, and touched so many lives.

  1. Which Hogwarts house are you in?

Pottermore sorted me into Hufflepuff

  1. If you could be best friends with any author, who would it be?

J.K. Rowling, obviously. She’s such a badass.

  1. Are there any books you find intimidating to read (due to size, subject, etc.)?

Yes! I shy away from non-fiction because most of it doesn’t interest me. I also haven’t gotten to any Patrick Rothfuss or any of Brandon Sanderson’s adult novels because they’re some serious chunkers!

  1. Who are your top three auto-buy authors?

I don’t really have auto-buy authors because of how I buy books, but some auto-reads are definitely John Green, J.K. Rowling, and Scott Westerfeld.
