Three Things About Me

  1. I’m currently working in Lush! I really love the products Lush sell and treating myself to some gorgeous soap or a bath bomb now and then to get me through university. Now I’m currently working there whilst I get myself on my feet. And I totally love it!
  2. I’m turning 22 next week! It feels very weird (and a little bit like Taylor Swift), but I’m really starting to feel like I’m classed as an adult more and more. I’m still a big kid inside though and I’m always mistaken for being much younger thanks to my baby face.
  3. I’m a huge collector. I admit it. Pop vinyls of all types, Harry Potter mystery minis, Disney tsum tsums – you name it, I probably collect it. I’m a huge ‘nerd’, as some people would probably describe me, but I get so into shows and films and I love to continue that in my own life.

Questions:

  1. What’s your favourite season?

Autumn has always been my favourite season, which is lucky as we are in it now. I love the weather and everything associated with it. Autumn is full of pretty colours and tasty hot drinks. I’m also a massive sweater wearer so my wardrobe is always prepared for autumn. As a bonus, it’s Halloween and my birthday in autumn, and I also get to start Christmas prepping in this season!

  1. Do you have any Booktube or general Youtube recommendations?

I don’t actually watch any booktube channels or youtube channels for that matter. I used to watch a few vloggers when I was a young teen but I just grew out of it naturally. Maybe you guys can give me some recommendations to start?

  1. Who is your favourite superhero?

I was so torn answering this question. I’m a massive Marvel fan and have loved their superhero films for a long time. I suppose my first love was Thor, so I’m going to have to go with him. It was a very close tie with the Hulk though! I just think they’re wonderfully funny guys who are, of course, great at saving the world. I’m totally in love with Wonder Woman too after the incredible film this year!

  1. Do you like to read classics? Why or why not?

Yes and no. I used to enjoy reading classics at school but I don’t reach for them often now. Classics can be tough and I think there’s a huge pressure to like them. I always want to read them but I enjoyed learning about the story in school, which I wouldn’t be able to do by myself. With so many new books constantly being released, I often favour those.

  1. What’s your least favourite book you’ve read this year?

My least favourite book I’ve read this year is currently The Emerald Circus. In fact, I haven’t even finished it. I requested this on Netgalley and was so excited to read it but it just isn’t quite what I expected. It’s not a bad book, but I’m also not thinking about it all the time. Hopefully I’ll enjoy the second half of the book when I start reading it again.

  1. Congrats and thanks so much for the nomination! I feel really similar about classics, like I would like to read a lot of them at some point but for now I want to read new releases! Also a big yes with the collecting, I am just starting my pop vinyl collection (i currently have three) but i’m hoping to get a few more for christmas, and i absolutely love disney tsum tsums! 😊😊

    1. Thank you! I would love to read some more classics but I feel like I relate to and enjoy newer books a lot more in general. Ooh pop vinyls and tsums tsums are so addictive! I should probably be ashamed of the amount of money I’ve spent collecting themπŸ˜‚

      1. Yes exactly, and it’s not like the classics are going to disappear anytime soon so we can read them whenever!! Haha honestly same, that’s why I always try and drop hints around my birthday and christmas hoping that people will buy them for me!

  2. Congrats on the nomination and thank you for my own! πŸ™‚
    For classics, I definitely agree that they can be hard to read, but I do find that if I am in the right mood for them, I tend to enjoy them (especially children’s classics). I’m currently reading Anne of Avonlea (just finished Anne of Green Gables) and I’m loving it – they are some of my favourite books.

    1. Thank you and no problem! I’m always hesitant around general classics but I do love a good children’s classic to be fair😊 I adore The Great Gatsby and The Catcher in the Rye but I studied them in school so I’d be worried I’d read a classic now and have no idea what was going on without all the lessons haha!

      1. Ah I haven’t read those two, will hope to read them some time though. Really? That’s so interesting! Personally I’m the other way around, I hate studying books in school because for me I feel like it ruins the experience for me having to analyse everything.

  3. Thank you for the nomination!
    Continuing on the classics discussion, I always feel the need to read more classics than I actually do. I have two shelves full of them and over half are untouched. I would like to think that one day, I would have read them all. I feel bad for abandoning mine because when I was a teenager, I would read nothing but classics, albeit some of the same ones over and over again. When one of my university friends introduced me to YA, they got placed on the backburner and they’ve been there ever since. It’s a shame because there are some authors I want to get into and I feel the desire to discover some of the modern classics that seem all the more relevant to today’s society.
