I was tagged by Gerry for this fun tag. If you haven’t already checked Gerry’s blog: The Book Nook UK out, you definitely should. If for no other reason, then because Gerry chose to put the actor that plays Merlin in their family on the tag. And who doesn’t love Merlin?
- Thank the nominator.
- Answer 16 of the 19 questions.
- Replace the 3 that you didn’t answer.
- Q20 and Q14 must always remain intact.
1. ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING A BOOK, IF SO WHAT IS IT?
I just started reading Daughter of Persephone last night. I’m only like 26% into the book, but so far I’m not really impressed or really into it. But who knows, a lot can change in 74%.
2. TOAST OR CEREAL?
It depends… some days I feel like cereal, other days like toast. On days like today it’s a toasted bagel and Philadelphia that calls to me.
3. CHOICE WEAPON FOR SURVIVAL DURING THE ZOMBIE INVASION?
I have to hope that my sarcasm will come in handy some way, because I really can’t take Zombie’s serious. So, I’ll probably just laugh at them.
4. HORROR OR COMEDY FILMS?
I can’t possibly choose! I love either and I need to be in the mood for either. Sometimes I just need to laugh, other times I fancy a good scare – which I regret later on, when I then can’t sleep.
5. SKINNY DIPPING OR MUD WRESTLING?
6. WHAT IS THE LAST BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY AND WHY?
The thank you speech Scottie gives in Just Be You by M.E. Parker, is so incredibly beautiful! It had me ugly cry all over the place. If you haven’t read this wonderful gay romance, I cannot recommend it enough!
7. GOING TO THE PARTY OR THE LIBRARY WHAT’S YOUR PREFERENCE?
The library! I’m by no means a social butterfly so party’s can be quite exhausting for me. It’s weird really because I used to always surround myself with people, now I prefer few if any around me. Cats and books all the way – my boyfriend is lucky, lol.
8. WHAT’S IS YOUR FAVOURITE TIPPLE?
If you like piña coladas
and getting caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga
if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight
in the dunes of a cape
I’m the love that you looked for
write to me and escape
9. IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ONE ANIMAL TO SHAPE-SHIFT INTO WHAT WOULD IT BE?
10. IF YOU COULD TIME TRAVEL ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
Argh, tempted to skip this one, that’s too hard! But I think if I could time travel anywhere, I would go back to 1985 and meet my birth parents.
11. WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A CHILD?
I was one of those kids that was a firm believer in breaking and pushing boundaries. Spending all my spare time thinking of ways around it. Do I need to tell you how it never worked as well in reality, as it did in my head?
12. YOU’VE BEEN GRANTED 24 HOURS TO HAVE A PSYCHIC ABILITY OF YOUR CHOOSING (CONSEQUENCE FREE), WHAT ABILITY WOULD YOU HAVE AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT?
I’d love to say I’d go for something awesome, I could use to fight crime. But let’s be real here, I’m not that noble. I’d go for something telekinesis where I could make other people do whatever I wanted them to. And I’d use it to be a criminal anti-hero.
13. WHAT’S THE FIRST SENTENCE OF THE BOOK THAT’S CLOSEST TO YOU RIGHT NOW?
Hmm closest as in physical distance, or closest to my heart? The closest in distance is “WHEELS OF TERROR” by Sven Hazzel.
The air-raid screams, whistles, thunders.
The one that’s closest to my heart is The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
My father was a king and the son of kings.
14. WHICH 3 QUESTIONS WILL YOU BE DELETING TO ADD YOUR OWN IN?
Question: 5, 9 & 17
15. IF SOMEONE WANTED TO MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT YOUR FAMILY, WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO PORTRAY YOURSELF, YOUR PARENTS AND SIBLINGS?
For myself I would have to go with Queen Latifah! She’s large, she’s in charge. She’s got sass and snark in spades, whilst being classy as F. She’s without doubt someone I’d be honoured to play me.
Rose Leslie should definitely portray my youngest sister. Not just because they’r both red heads, but their personalities seem pretty similar!
My oldest (and still younger) sister should be Bonnie Wright. My only reasoning is the red hair!
My brother should definitely be
And last, but not least mommy dearest
I should clarify that none of us really looks anything like these gorgeous actors and actresses. But for some reason, they’re who popped into my head when I read the question. And I’d definitely watch a film with these people in it!
17. WHERE DO YOU FEEL THE MOST AT PEACE?
18. WHAT’S YOUR DREAM JOB?
I think my dream job would be writing. I don’t know what I’d be writing, but unless I could live of reading and writing reviews, that’s what I’m going for.
19. WHAT MUSIC IS CURRENTLY YOUR FAVOURITE? *PROVIDE LINK*
Anything by the Foo Fighters, and currently my favourite is Saint Cecilia.
