The Sunshine Blogger Award


This award nomination is for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

I was nominated for The Sunshine Blogger Award by Brenda & Norma @ The Traveling Sisters. If you haven’t already checked out their blog I can’t suggest it enough! So much of my inspiration comes from these amazing ladies. Thank you so much for the nomination! 

Thank you so much as well to everyone visiting my blog, I was nervous to start this thing and I can’t tell you all how much I appreciate the positive welcome and feedback! 


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you by linking their blog.
  • Answer the questions
  • Nominate 11 blogs with 11 questions
  • List the rules as well as display the Sunshine Award Logo on your post.

11 Questions from The Traveling Sisters:

1. What cheers you up?

In order: my husband, my dog, and books!

2. Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once?

I used to be a one book at a time girl but recently I’ve really enjoyed having one on my Kindle and one hardcover from the library. 

3. How do you prepare for your next read? Do you go in completely blind / read just the blurb / read reviews / read everything you can and research the heck out of a book?

I go full immersion. I read reviews of people I know / have similar tastes to, I read good reviews and bad ones, the synopsis etc etc. The only time I don’t do this is obviously with ARCs and some Traveling Sister recommendations because I trust the sisters! 

4. Mountains or beach?

Always mountains! 

5. If you had to be trapped in a TV show or a book for a month, which show or book would you choose?

OK IT’S KIND OF NERDY. But Avatar: The Last Airbender. I can not overstate how beautiful the messages of this show are! It’s a family show and a cartoon so you just have to get past that but it’s literally, the best story ever told. The character development and story arcs are to die for and the messages are so beautiful and positive. I could literally go on for years.

6. Describe to me your dream vacation or best vacation.

Dream vacation would probably be a skiing tour of some kind. Maybe start here in the US, pop up to Whistler, then fly over to the Alps. It would be a weeks-long skiing extravaganza! 

7. List five words that describe you.

Quirky, Talkative, Empathetic, Anxious, Happy!

8. What famous person do people tell you that you most resemble?

Honestly, I’ve got no idea. I can’t remember the last time someone said I looked like someone else!

9. What is your favourite book genre and book that you have read in that genre?

Probably a tie between fantasy and thriller. Fantasy: The Air Awakens Series / Thriller: Final Girls by Riley Sager

10. What is your least favourite book genre?

I don’t have any entire genre that I don’t like. I’ll give anything a chance and I’ve found great books in all the genres! However, my least favorite type of story is probably family dramas. I don’t have any idea why I just can’t get into them.

11. What is your favourite thing to spend money on?

Probably traveling! Past that I love buying punny kitchen towels. I kind of have a problem…
