Rachel’s Questions

What’s the last movie you saw and what did you think of it?

The last new (to me) movie I watched (as of the day I’m writing this post) was the Lovely Bones and I really enjoyed it! I have a Book vs. Movie post coming soon!

(update: since originally writing this, I’ve now watched the Help for the first time and I LOVED it)

Do you have any weird or random talents?

I horseback ride, if that counts as weird? I’m also really good at remembering song lyrics, which is useful for parties but not really anywhere else.

What’s your favourite song at the moment?

Currently I really like Short Skirt/Long Jacket by Cake and Honey, I’m Good by Andy Grammer, which are very different but I love them both!

What time of day do you do most of your blogging?

Whenever I have time really! My school schedule is pretty open this semester so I basically blog whenever I’m not in class, work, or doing homework.

What’s your favourite museum that you’ve been to?

I love science centres, and the best one I’ve been to thus far is the one in Montreal. I highly highly highly recommend it! I also really enjoyed the National Gallery in London when I went last summer!

When’s the last time you went to a wedding?

Honestly, I’ve never really been to a wedding. I’ve been to the ceremonies of three weddings, but never a reception. I’m just not quite at that stage yet I guess. But the last reception I went to was September 2016, and it was a beautiful fall wedding in this gorgeous downtown church.

Do you have a celebrity doppelganger?

I don’t think so?

If you were a cat, what colour cat would you be?  (Very important question.)

(This is a very important question)

I’ve always loved tabby cats, even though they’re all bitchy. I just think they’re so pretty!

Do you have a favourite publisher or publisher imprint?

Not really, I don’t pay too much attention to publishers tbh.

Have you ever dressed up like a fictional character?  (Bonus points for photo evidence.)

I have! I went to the Calgary Comic Expo dressed as the 11th Doctor and met John Barrowman!


What’s your favourite thing about your city (or state, or country)?

I live about an hour and a half away from the Rocky Mountains, which are one of my favourite places ever. I love skiing and rock climbing and hiking, so I’m so fortunate to live so close to them.

Darque’s Questions

Who is the one person that is the sunshine in your life?

My family, especially my siblings. My brother is 2 years younger and my sister is 8 years younger, but we all get along really well. We’re so similar sometimes, it’s a little scary. Like just recently my mom went “so Mark was saying that we can’t do this thing” and the reasons my sister and I gave her for why we can’t do the thing were the exact same ones Mark had given her, even though we’d never talked about it.

 Do you prefer all happy movies, or occasional sad movies?

I like all movies tbh, but generally happy movies. I categorize movies into “good movies” (ones that are well-written/filmed/directed) and “fun movies” (ones that are fun to watch) which sometimes overlap (ex. the Dark Night, Memoirs of a Geisha, American Beauty) but sometimes don’t, and generally I like watching movies that are both.

What is the one food that always makes you happy?

Chocolate anything, really.

What is the sunshine on your blog?

I hope it’s me! I try to be positive and nice and kind and all that good stuff.

What is your favourite holiday?

I like all holidays honestly! Maybe Christmas because I like buying presents for people, but I also like Halloween and dressing up.

What is one thing you love about yourself?

I have really nice hair and good taste in books.

What is one think you love about the blogging community?

Everyone is so nice! Seriously, I have met some people that are so lovely! I just love talking about my opinions with people who actually care.

 What is the one book that made you smile the most?

I think Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I love it so much, and it’s so smart and funny.

Where is your corner of sunshine in your home?

My bedroom. It’s very cosy and me.

What is your favourite colour or colours?

Purple, grey, and blue.

What is the one movie that always makes you happy?

Spirited Away is my all-time favourite movie, so definitely that.

I nominate: Hanna // Ella // Oldřiška // Charlotte //  Lois

My questions:

  1. What book reminds you of a specific place?
  2. What’s your favourite place to visit in your hometown/province/state/country?
  3. Which author do you admire the most?
  4. Are there any books you would never recommend?
  5. One bookish pet peeve?
  6. Favourite cake flavour?
  7. Do you have a favourite piece of jewellery?
  8. If you were on a game show, which song would they play when you entered? (what song is your theme song??)
  9. Which bookish world would you want to visit?
  10. Best book of 2017 so far?
  11. If you had to give your parents a book, which would it be?

Thanks everyone for reading!!
