More blog awards! I realized yesterday that I was nominated for quite a few, and since The Name of the Wind is taking me a while to read, I don’t yet have a review to write for it. I’m hoping I can finish it this weekend to get the review up soon! Anyway, I have been nominated for The Versatile Blogger award, as well as receiving MORE nominations for the Real Neat Blog Award (4th), The Liebster Award (2nd) and The Infinity Dreams Award (3rd). Because I’ve already received the last three but still really appreciate being nominated, I’ll answer the new questions provided and link to the original posts.
This is going to be a long post, so cosy up and enjoy!

7 facts about me…
1. I’m currently addicted to Little Mix’s new album Get Weird
2. In 2016 I’m hoping to read more Graphic Novels, Classics and Historical fiction.
3. I am officially on my Christmas break as of yesterday, and I’m so excited that I have more time to read now!
4. I’ve never been to a bookish event, and that makes me sad. no book signings, no conventions etc. I really struggle to find/hear about them before they happen so I always miss out.
5. I’m quite a typical girly -girl as well as a bookworm. I love everything to do with makeup, hair, skincare and clothing.
6. I literally talk about books all the time and it probably annoys everyone to death but oh well.
7. I’m just going to die in 2016 with all the fandom related things going on. A Throne of Glass colouring book, as well as Sarah J Maas’ next 2 books being released. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. Samantha Shannon’s next book The Song Rising. The new X-men: Apocalypse film and Avengers: Civil War. The Miss Peregrine’s film. There’s probably more too that I can’t remember right now. AGH I won’t make it to the end of the year!

Non fiction! I very very very rarely read anything non fiction. I’d rather live in the fictional world thank you very much.

I’ve only been on holiday about twice, and only once out of my country. And that was to Scotland! I adored it there ❤
What did you want to be when you grew up as a little child?
I wanted to work on Broadway actually. Strange, since I can’t sing in front of people. I do have one of those voices that needs to be belted out though. I wouldn’t be good enough to work on Broadway anyway haha!
What’s your favorite movie and why?
Harry potter because it’s Harry potter.
What was the best advice that was given to you?
I don’t know actually. Probably something along the lines of “Don’t let what anyone thinks of you affect you and get you down”.
