I was nominated to do The Sunshine Blogger Award by Courtney over at Paperback Beaches. I have done this award before, but since there are a different set of questions, I figured I would do it again!

-List the rules and display The Sunshine Blogger Award in your post and/or on your blog
1. What's the best book recommendation you've ever received from someone?
The reason I read the Lux series is because it was recommended by Wendy Higgins. This is by far the best book recommendation I've ever gotten because it gave me a new favorite series.
2. What are some goals you have for your blog and yourself as a blogger?
One of my main goals for my blog is to reach 100 followers/email subscribers! I would be over the moon if that happened! Another goal that I have is to be able to get enough views to start conversation type posts. Finally, a goal for myself as a blogger is to be able to post good quality content as often as I can!
3. What's your proudest moment as a blogger?
Either when I first published my blog or when I got my first comment.
4. Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
How can I answer that? I have so many favorites, I don't even know where to start. I am just going to name my top 10. Kaz from Six of Crows, Inej from Six of Crows, Katy from the Lux series, Daemon from the Lux series, Julian from the Dark Artifices, Tessa from the Infernal Devices, Aiden from the Covenant series, Kaidan from Sweet Evil, Rhysand from ACOTAR, and Jace from the Mortal Instruments. Keep in mind, this list is always changing! :)
5. What's the funniest thing that ever happened to you?
I can't think of anything super funny that has happened to me.
6. Name 3 shows you've been wanting to watch, but haven't gotten around to watching them yet.
Outlander, The Flash, and Stitchers.
7. If you could travel anywhere in the world today, where would you go?
There are so many places that I want to go to! I am going to go with Europe in general because half of the places that I want to go are in Europe.
8. What was the name of the last book you picked up, but couldn't finish?
Empire of Storms. I will finish at some point, but I am having a really tough time finshing it.
9. How were you inspired to become a blogger?
After reading the Lux series and discovering book blogging, I knew that I wanted to blog.
