Recently, the amazing Savannah of Scattered Scribblings
tagged me with the Sunshine Blogger Tag. Thanks, Savannah! =) This looks like a lot of fun! And I’ve been tagged quite a few other times (thank you so much, everyone! =)), so be on the lookout for more fun tagginess! If that’s even a word.
Which it should be. Anyways, the rules….
Rules: Answer 11 questions from your nominee, tag 11 bloggers, and ask them 11 new questions.
Do you own any signed books?
|Don’t you love the matching bookmark? =)
I do happen to own one lovely signed book-but only one, although I hope to add to that collection. I have a signed copy of Purple Moon by Tessa Emily Hall, and it’s one of my absolute FAVORITE books. Isn’t the cover lovely? Which brings me to the next question…
What are three of the prettiest books you own?
AAAAHHH THIS IS SO HARD. I love book covers, and I have picked out books partly for the covers…. Such a shallow bookworm I can be. xD Well, here they are, and I have restricted myself to only pick books I own in print…. Not the millions of pretty e-books I have.
Purple Moon by Tessa Emily Hall, my special 50th year anniversary edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, and For Love and Honor by Jody Hedlund. Aren’t they gorgeous? =)
What are five of your favorite blogs?
Wow. This tag is HARD. I FOLLOW MANY BLOGS AND I LOVE THEM ALL. I’ll pick five random ones that I love. =)
If you could re-write the ending of one book, which book would it be?
Hhhhmmmm…. This is hard to decide. I think I’d rewrite the ending to Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. It was just so SAD. And not what I had in mind for Katniss and Peeta and everyone else. If it was me, it would be more…. Confetti and happy and cupcakes everywhere.
Which doesn’t exactly tie in with the rest of the series but why can’t party hats and giant cakes go with it?
How did you come up with the title for your blog?
Well… I have had two previous blogs, the first named A Little Bit of Everything and the second Ramblings of a Writer. As I prepared to start my current blog, I was practically banging my head on my piles of notebooks as I tried to think of an original name that would fit my blog. And then, I had it… Notebooks. I love notebooks. And novels. Who doesn’t love novels? So I named my blog Notebooks and Novels, after two things I love. =)
What is the last movie you watched, and what did you think of it?
The last movie I watched was Ant-Man. I liked it. A LOT. Okay, who am I kidding, I loved it! I just love Marvel, and I am NOT a DC girl. At all. But anyways, the movie was a great spin on the original Ant-Man story, and I think it was done very well. I also enjoyed how we got to see a certain Avenger in one scene…. Which is probably my favorite part of the entire movie. =D
What’s one of your favorite memories from 2017 (so far)?
One of my favorite memories…. THAT IS WAYYYY TOO HARD. Probably sitting around the campfire beneath a canopy of stars with s’mores, my family, and a notebook. It doesn’t get much better than that, if you ask me. =)
How is a raven like a writing desk?
I know this one! They both make NOTES! =D Thanks, Jest! And yes, I have read a bit of Heartless so far… And now lemon tarts sound lovely. =)
What are your three favorite fandoms?
*head bang* Umm…. This is a hard tag. When I say hard, I mean HARD. How am I to pick?! Well, I’ll start with two obvious fandoms: Narnia and Middle Earth. I mean, Tolkien and Lewis. Who doesn’t love them?! And as my third… The Avengers. Earth’s mightiest heroes. And for the record…. Go team Cap. =)
Do you prefer writing by hand or typing?
Despite my many escapades with with writing novels in notebooks, I prefer typing. First of all, my hand prefers it. Like, REALLY prefers it. Secondly, it’s SO much faster than writing by hand, not to mention neater. Lastly, there’s something about that clickety click sound as my fingers sweep across the keyboard that is so satisfying. Am I the only one? =)
What’s a story you’d like someone to do a re-telling of?
Hhhmmm…. There’s SO many! Probably “Thumbelina” for me. How has there not been a retelling of one of my favorite childhood stories yet?! If there is, please kindly direct me to it. Thank you. If not, then I have another writing project to attend to…
