Another week is gone. Where?!? GIVE IT BACK!!!
I had lots of fun this week while reading a special tag on my friend Inge’s blog (find her Sunshine in February here!) and I decided I needed to take part. Inge, the ever lovely lady that she is, allowed me to use this tag today!
#1 Text message or call?
Text message. Any time. I find calls awkward, even with friends. I don’t enjoy lengthy conversations because they always lead to a weird silence I am not good at filling. If it’s not work-related, type me anything!
#2 Do you read before bed?
The right question is ‘when do I NOT read?’ 😝 I read before bed, although not too long as my eyes don’t like it.
I also read during breakfast (the perks of living alone… sort of), I read during the day, I read at the supermarket…
#3 Salt or sweet?
Sweetly salted? I can’t resist either. Like book choices, it depends on my mood. But I will not eat both at the same time, I have my limits.
#4 Do you believe in love at first sight?
Only with books. Attraction at first sight is a thing, but if I’m to fall in love, I need to get to know the person, it’s a mandatory step. Looks don’t do everything. Neither do first impressions.
#5 Do you have a special strategy to get more followers for your blog?
Nope! I go with the flow, I read, I review, I post whatever comes to mind, and if people enjoy it, yay! If not, it’s okay. I don’t chase followers, I am only looking for people who share my love of books and will to keep the mental health conversation going.
#6 Sandals or sneakers?
Depends on the rest of the outfit! 😇👟👠 I enjoy wearing both. I’ll admit that when wearing sneakers, I look like a teen so I tend to go for ‘adult’ shoes!
#7 Name one book you read (or bought) because of the cover
Furiously Happy (Couldn’t resist Rory on the cover!!)
#8 Hamburgers or hot-dogs?
Hamburgers! I’m a sucker for cheeseburgers, they take me to my happy place. I must eat cheeseburgers twice a week. At least. Like, right now, I’m gonna stop writing this tag and make myself a big one!
#9 What is the most recent book you couldn’t finish?
All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker. I just couldn’t connect to the story or the characters. I really tried. Really really tried.
#10 A skirt or pants? (For the man here: short or long pants ;-))
Skirts! Making the best of my legs until they look bad, mouhahaha. I wear skirts for myself, not to please anyone, and I will not stop wearing them because I am told to.
#11 What was your favorite holiday so far and why?
My Bloody Scotland weekend is the best holiday I’ve ever had. My first out-of-the-country trip, purely for fun, with happy authors, bloggers, publicists, and publishers. Great food, a fab hotel room, laughs and sweets. Albert the flamingo. My lovely Kelly saving me on a Saturday night with the equally fab Claire MacLeary. Singing in Icelandic with Lilja, following her to a backroom to meet The Ragnar Jónasson. Listening to my wonderful Johana, taking pictures of everything, including my hair and Will Dean’s (we totally could be in an ad for shampoo). Those days in the UK are some of my most treasured memories. (I will never get tired of sharing those pics)
