The Sunshine Blogger Award // very very very very late

Hey, angels!

It’s been a really (REALLY) long time (I was tagged in 2019!) since I’ve done a tag or award and I’ve been planning to do a ‘tag week’ for some time now (AKA a way for me to justify my procrastination).

For some reason, all my saved posts disappeared and this is one of the only tags I have saved! From now on I’m going to save them to a document for sure lol.

Anyways, from now on, you guys can start tagging me for tags and awards again! 😉 I know that so many people stopped tagging me because, obviously, I wasn’t doing them (I think it’s been 10 months since I’ve done one, gosh!), and honestly, thank you for doing that, friends!

I’m going to start posting tags and awards more often so if you did tag me for anything in the past, please please please drop the links below so I can actually do the tags in a ‘tag week’ of sorts.

I was tagged by Charlotte @ Bewitching Books, Ravenous Reads who is currently on hiatus but is a positively wonderful blogger whose blog content I adore! Go check out her blog and follow it right now 🙂

What book, if any, would you most love to see a prequel of?

Honestly, I feel like I have no right answer to this one! I’d really love to see a Six of Crows prequel but I still obviously want more from Rick Riordan (my favorite author ever) so I’m not sure.

We are getting a Hunger Games sequel though, so I will read it although it’s not my favorite series or anything.

Just any prequel other than for Harry Potter, please. JKR is going to find a way to be even more controversial (Dudley Dursley is a trans Latino boy with autism? I WOULDN’T PUT IT PAST HER). Anything other than Harry Potter.

What were/are your favourite and least favourite subjects at school?

My favorite subject is Language Arts although I’m generally interested in many subjects, and my least favorite subject is probably PE? I just hate physical activity, to be honest. A true bookdragon at heart.

What’s your favourite film that was released in 2019?

Hmm, that’s a great question! I, of course, loved watching Avengers: Endgame and Spiderverse (I think? Or was that 2018?! Quarantine has made everything else feel like the same!) or whatever Spiderman movie came out in 2019. I actually can’t really remember any other movies, oops, but Aladdin and Lion King were rad too (is that 2020? HELP).

What fairytale character would you be willing to trade places with?

If I’m going off of Disney, I might want to trade places with Kida, the princess of Atlantis from Disney’s film about Atlantis. She gets to be a princess of an amazing underwater kingdom?! Yes please! Where can I sign up? 😉

But other than Disney, I probably would choose the ORIGINAL story of Fa Mulan where she’s a badass warrior who DOES save her country but not with Shang and the other elements Disney threw in. Speaking of which, I’m excited about the live-action coming later this year!

What inspired you to start blogging?

One of my best friends, Vaishnavi, was a blogger and I was inspired to start a blog because of how much I loved her’s ❤ I’m so glad I made that decision!

What’s one piece of advice that you think all new bloggers should know?

This may be controversial, but this is what I think will help you grow your blog the most:
what’s more important than posting two or three times a week and then disappearing for three weeks without any posts is posting consistently and regularly, even if it isn’t the most often.

Also, hot take, but posting multiple times a day when you normally space out your posts a lot more isn’t really a good idea! It’s best to schedule that post for around a week later so you don’t feel burned out.

Believe me, all my old posts were incredibly sporadic.

If you could meet anyone, past or present, who would it be and why?

This question always makes me pause.  I really want to meet AOC- Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- (she’s in Congress in the USA) because she’s in a field that I’m really interested in going- public policy and humanities- and she fights relentlessly for things I believe in like a Green New Deal, stopping climate change, and gender equality. She’s one of my role models and I want to be able to make a wide-spread change in the country/world like she has been!!

What’s your favourite lesser-known, or talked about, book?

Ooh, so I highly recommend Every Other Weekend, a book that came out in February 2020 that is definitely less talked about. The romance is the cutest thing ever and it made me cry, too. ❤ My review is linked above!

Which fictional character do you most admire?

Just one?! If I have to just choose one, I’m going to choose Reyna Avila Ramirez-Arellano from the Riordanverse.

She was written as a totally badass character who never experienced love and comfort but slowly learned to trust others and I love her so much!!

What generally beloved character gets under your skin?

Maybe this is cheating, but I hate Snape. Yes, I know, a lot of others do too, but I used to be a Snape sympathizer and I know many people still are so this should count. He’s a horrible, abusive person.

What are your goals for 2020?

Jokes aside, I really want to have a productive year.
This sounds extremely vague, and it is, but I know I’ll know if I had it or not.
Also, I want to continue being vegan for the rest of the year! I went vegan after being vegetarian for all of my life last week, and I’m hoping I can stick to it (it helps that everyone in my fam is vegetarian and has always been).

My questions:

How have you been passing time during quarantine?

Do you have any family recipes?

What widely-beloved author’s work do you hate?

Do you have any unpopular opinions?
Do you bullet journal?
If you had one wish from a genie and it had to be selfish (no solving world peace, sadly) what would you choose?
How would you rate your 2020 from 1 to 10, and why?
Have you accomplished any of your goals for 2020?
