LETS TALK ABOUT ME

1) I like to sniff things. No, not drugs or anything like that. I pick things up and smell them. (So yes, I am familiar with the smell of various books). 


If you hand me a piece of paper, I will sniff it. If I pick up a rock? Sniff. It’s weird, I know. I like to think I do it because my sense of smell is strong haha.

2) I had a dream journal phase. Dreams have always fascinated me. Nobody really knows the reason we dream. And for the longest time, I could never remember my own. Sometimes I would wake up scared, or crying, and I had no memory of why. I read somewhere that writing down what you did remember of your dream, no matter how small, would eventually help you recall more details. So for 2-3 years I kept tabs on them. I went from remembering absolutely nothing to instances where I could recollect multiple dreams from one night. Then I quit. 😕 My dreams were kind of violent and scary. Oftentimes, depressing. I still have that journal. But ignorance is bliss, I guess.

3) I have a small penny collection. I collect wheat pennies which are the really old pennies that look like this: 

Some are highly valued (mine aren’t haha). A lot of them were produced so they’re pretty easy to find if you really look for them.

FRANKIE’S QUESTIONS FOR ME:

1. If you could only read either the beginning of a book for the rest of your life, or the end of a book for the rest of your life, which would you pick and why?

I think I would go with reading the beginning of the book. I can always make up my own ending. Right? Although knowing me, this would annoy me like no other. I need closure haha.

2. Recommend me books with titles that start with the first letter of each letter in your name. (For ex: five letters in your name equals five book recs)
Okay this one was incredibly tough. I have a Y and a Z in my name! I was going to make it easy on myself and use my actual name, Susan. But I like a challenge. So here we go. (The links go to their Goodreads page).

Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand 

Zeno’s Conscience by Italo Svevo [Technically haven’t read this, but it is on my TBR]

Is Everyone Hanging Out With Me? by Mindy Kaling

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Young Elites by Marie Lu

3. Do you think there are any cons, or negative effects, of being an avid reader? Please explain your answer either way.
Negative effects? Nope! Impossible! Um how about a quote?

Books can do many things, but not everything. We have to live the important things, not read them. 

     – Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

I have noticed that by prioritizing my reading I have less of a social life. Not that I was a social butterfly before. But I just have less time to go out and about in the world. 

4. How often do you post on your blog? And do you have a posting schedule/plan?
I post 2-3 times a week. I alternate between a Tuesday/Friday schedule and a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule. 

Monday is a TBR book. 

Tuesday/Wednesday a reading challenge book

Friday a Nancy Drew book

5. (Weird/Funny Question) What’s the strangest place you’ve ever taken a book with you? 

The bathroom probably. Although I think it’s fairly common amongst bookworms… ?

3) What are you most proud of? It can be anything, no matter how big or small. (Ex. Maybe you’re proud of winning a spelling bee in 2nd grade). 

4) What book world you would love to live in (besides the wizarding world of Harry Potter lol) ?

  2. haha I like to smell books too 😉 (which I’ll admit sounds weird now I’ve typed it out 😉 ) I find dreams fascinating, but have never kept a dream diary- I should try it maybe (although like you said, ignorance is bliss) Yeah I reckon most people take their books in the bathroom. Thank you for tagging me!

    1. No problem! I love reading your posts!!
      Dreams are so strange lol. I would recommend a dream diary. It’s a pretty interesting experience. And when a book is simply too good to put down you have to take it everywhere. Including the bathroom lmao.

  3. I was with you when you said smelling paper and then I saw smelling rocks in the next sentence and I did a literal double-take! XD And yay! First penny collector I’m speaking to, pennies are fascinating and hold a history of their own. And indeed, the most important things in life must be lived. Beautiful quote.
    And thanks for the nomination, I can’t wait to do it! 🤗

    1. I said it was weird lol! I love history and I think the pennies are my connection to the past. I mean, I own a 101 year old penny! How cool is that?!
      A very well-deserved nomination! Can’t wait to see your answers! 🙂

      1. Yes, you did warn us! 😂 In all my blogging days, smelling rocks is something I will never forgot, pagans. And it’s freaking awesome, so show us more if you have more! And thank you, you’re too kind (in advance, I do award posts at the end of the month).
