The Sunshine Blogger Award

15 Aug

Hello! An awardy today. :”D I was tagged by A Universe for Books, so thank you much! Sorry it took me so long to get to posting it!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer 11 questions set by the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 11 bloggers to receive the award and write them 11 new questions to answer.

Questions for me:

Imagine that you are the protagonist and your life is a book. Which book that you’ve read would be written about you?

This is such a cool question. :”D Unfortunately though I can’t think of one. My life is pretty boring, haha. What I would like though would be something like Harry Potter, but who wouldn’t? 😛

Imagine your favourite book is being turned into a book to movie adaptation. See if you can create a soundtrack to this book. Which book would it be?

This is such a cool question too! :”D One of my favorite books currently is Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I just looked at my favorites list and it’s one of few that doesn’t actually already have a tv show or movie, so this is the one. 😛

Here is the synopsis from Amazon before I go into the setlist I’ve created:

Uprooted
Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, ambitious wizard, known only as the Dragon, to keep the wood’s powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman must be handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as being lost to the wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows – everyone knows – that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia – all the things Agnieszka isn’t – and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her. But no one can predict how or why the Dragon chooses a girl. And when he comes, it is not Kasia he will take with him.

The setlist (alluding to events but not directly spoiling):

The opening scenes: In the Land of Twlight, Under the Moon by Yuki Kaijiura
After the choosing: Bittersweet by Apocalyptica
A new location: Symphony #7, 2nd movement by Beethoven
Adjusting: We Don’t Have to Dance by Andy Black
Discovery of a gift: Locked With the Crystal Ball by Blackmore’s Night
The forest’s theme: Nightfall by Blind Guardian
The Dragon’s theme: Own Little World by Celldweller
Agnieszka’s theme: Call Me, Call Me by The Seatbelts
Getting Kasia: Rising by the Yoshida Brothers
The final scenes: In the End by Black Veil Brides

I had way too much fun doing this.

Continuing from question 2, who would be your dream cast?

I looked around at fan casting since I didn’t have any planned myself, and I’ve settled on the following: I’d say Hailee Steinfeld for Agnieszka, Elle Fanning for Kasia and Aneurin Barnard for The Dragon

If you could travel in time, where would you want to travel and what would you do?

Probably into the future, assuming humanity doesn’t crash and burn by ignoring global warming or blowing each other up or pissing off an alien race or being smacked by a gamma ray from andromeda…. Actually, I’ll stay in right now, thanks.

If real life was a fantasy book, what kind of character would you be? (Rebel, assassin, warrior, adventurer etc…)

I’d be one of those people where the main characters show up at my house/inn/pub/whatever and I’d give them food and stuff. I’d totally be a side character.

What is your favourite beginning to a new book or book series?

Harry Potter, definitely. Last words of the first chapter in the first book? Chills, people.

If you were to write a book or book series, what would it be about?

I’ve had a plot bunny in my head for five years now – each year I attempt to write it out for Nanowrimo and it never ends up how I want it. So that idea. Not gonna mention it just in case it actually ends up on paper at some point.

Clay/ air gun shooting, running, climbing, horse riding, hiking. How would you order these from best to worst?

Hiking, Clay/air gun shooting, climbing, horse riding, running. I have no stamina. Running is definitely last for me.

Would you rather be a bookseller, but you are never able to read another book again or an author, but you can only read the stories you’ve written?

An author. At least this way I can still read.

Would you rather be: a demi-god, shadowhunter or peculiar? Why?

I’m assuming you mean peculiar from the peregrine books. Peculiar. Haven’t read enough of the others to know their advantages.

If you were a demi-god, who would your godly parent be and if you were peculiar, what would be your peculiarity?

I’ve always liked Artemis. And knowing me, I’d probably get stuck with something dumb like the ability to grow my hair really fast. :”D


And that’s it! Thank you for tagging me! As I’ve been on a bit of a tagging spree lately and I haven’t seen any of the posts show up yet I’m not going to tag anymore – I’d just be adding to the pile. xD

I’m going to create questions though, in case anyone would like to consider themselves tagged:

  1. What is your favorite time of day to read?
  2. Do you listen to music while reading? What kind?
  3. In a book-to-movie adaptation of a book you’ve read, who do you think they casted really well? Who do you think was way off the mark?
  4. Do you read different genres during different seasons?
  5. Do you like audiobooks?
  6. What series do you feel had a great beginning and end but awful middle?
  7. Do you watch tv in the morning when getting ready for work/school/house stuff? What do you watch?
  8. How do you have your books stored or arranged in your home? Can I see a picture?
  9. What’s your favorite weather for reading?
  10. What’s your favorite nonfiction book?
  11. If you could meet an author and convey your personal wishes for their next book or installment in a series they’re writing, who would be the author and what would you tell them about the book?

Happy reading!

    Congrats on the award!!! If life was a fantasy, I think I’d be side character that weird things happen to, though whenever I daydream about this, I’m either an assassin or a ninja.

      Ideally, I’d be a piratey character. Not a pirate – I don’t wanna be a bad guy – but pirate-esque? 😀

    Oh! I’m gonna answer your questions too. I’ll do so here.
    1. Sunset while watching the sun set, or sunrise while watching the sun rise.
    2. Nah, I can’t. Music makes me daydream. I’d get distracted.
    3. Hmm… I think the actresses for the Sisterhood of Traveling Pants were casted well.
    4. Umm… No. I don’t think I do.
    5. If done well, yes, but i don’t retain as much as when I read a physical book. I don’t hold on to the story or the words.
    6. At the moment, the Raven Boys series, though I haven’t yet finished it.
    7. I mostly listen to NPR. If I watch something, it’s book lovers on YouTube.
    8. I have them stuffed on my bookcase and on my dresser thing and in a basket thing and on my night table thing. No pics. It doesn’t look great.
    9. Thunderstorm
    10. Why Is The Penis Shaped Like That by Jesse Bering. It’s great. Read it!
    11. JK Rowling. I would tell her to stop teasing with the random HP stories and just write another book for the series already!

    Random smiley faces!!😄😆😊

      I had to go back and read my questions again. xD Your answers are so great, haha. I feel you as far as audiobooks go. They’re handy though, even if the immersion isn’t as strong.
