  2. I pick Marvel over DC any day.
  3. I once wrote really horrible Elsa/Loki fan fiction in my journal. So. Cringeworthy.

Erin’s Questions

What book blew your mind as a kid?

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. I fell so in love with this series as a kid. I was beyond obsessed. I particularly loved how The Magician’s Nephew explained everything. That really shook me.

When did you realize you were a bookworm?

When I was very young, in elementary school. Books were always something I loved. I didn’t like to play sports nor did I have any interest in joining Girl Scouts like the other kids in my grade. So books became my thing.

What book(s) have you read that you want to make sure to pass on to your children (or any children in your life)?

All of my American Girl Books. They teach great life lessons and are a fun way to learn history. I learned so much from those books.

What are your favorite types of bookish posts to read on book blogs?

I love to read more controversial posts, like unpopular bookish opinions. Those are so fun to read. I also enjoy tag posts.

If you were in a paranormal or fantasy world/novel would you rather be a vampire, werewolf, shifter, fae, magic user, other, regular old human, etc?

I would love to be a witch. I’ve been really interested in witches lately.

My Questions

  1. What is your unpopular bookish opinion?
  2. Besides books, what else are you passionate about?
  3. How do you organize your bookshelf?
  4. What book is your guilty pleasure?
  5. Would you rather spend the day with your favorite author or your favorite character?

I nominate…

Erica from Erica’s Bookshelves

Danielle from The Blonde Likes Books

Priyanka from Priyanka Reads

My best posts…

I actually did a similar tag to this one called the One Lovely Blog Award which asked me to give 7 facts about myself. So for this one I will give 7 brand new facts.

Here are my 7 facts

  1. My favorite sport is baseball. I’m a huge SF Giants fan although my favorite player, Tim Lincecum, is currently on the Texas Rangers
  2. I love classic rock. I grew up listening to it and some of my favorite classic rock bands are Aerosmith, Van Halen, Guns ‘N’ Roses, Def Leppard, and AC/DC.
  3. I don’t read e-books. I tried to, but I retain information better when it is a physical book.
  4. My favorite superhero is Squirrel Girl. She’s awesome. She’s unbeatable, hilarious, and such a good role model.
  5. I love reading coffee table books. I have acquired quite a collection of them. My favorite coffee table book topics are home design/interior design, fashion, Disney, and the Kennedys.
  6. My favorite ride at Disneyland is the Haunted Mansion. I’m obsessed with that ride and I often refer to it as my dream home.
  7. I love stationery. Nothing beats good old fashioned paper. It’s why I always took hand written notes at school. I love writing on paper. Plus, like with books, I have better retention taking notes on paper than I do typing them.

One Lovely Blog Award

I was nominated by my very good friend Erica from Erica’s Bookshelves for the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you so much for nominating me! I’ve known Erica for quite a while on Bookstagram.

Now onto the facts!

  1. My favorite Disney Princess is Mulan. Based on my blog name and profile pic, you would think my favorite would be Belle, but Mulan is my number 1. Mulan is such a bad ass and growing up she was the only female Asian representation I saw in movies. Belle is actually my third favorite princess (Rapunzel is number 2).
  2. My current celebrity crushes are Skeet Ulrich and Dove Cameron. This past summer I binge watched Riverdale fell in love with Skeet (aka FP Jones). I also watched Disney Descendants 2 and completely fell in love with Dove.
  3. My favorite singer is Lana Del Rey. I am obsessed with her. Her music speaks to me in such an intimate way. She’s an absolute genius.
  4. I like playing solitaire. I could literally play for hours and never get bored. My favorite game to play is Klondike.
  5. My favorite Beatle is Ringo. Not only does he have the coolest name, he was also the most drama-free.
  6. I suck at putting on make-up. I have like zero make up skills. Like I have no idea how to apply eyeshadow or cat-eye eyeliner.
  7. I’ve never traveled outside of the USA. The farthest I’ve been is Hawaii. But I really do want to travel other countries, particularly the Philippines and the UK.

Nominations!
