Erin over at I Think I’m Obsessed just nominated me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! I was totally surprised but extremely happy to be nominated. Big thanks to Erin (go and check out her blog if you haven’t already – for it is awesome).
Here are the rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
Put the award logo on your blog.
Answer the ten questions they’ve set you.
Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
Nominate ten people.
Here are the questions Erin set for her nominees:
1. What is one book that helped shape you into who you are today?
Hmm…I would have to go with The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien – it’s the book that really got me into reading the fantasy genre and even though I have eclectic tastes in books, fantasy is still my favourite.
2. Which colour is the new black?
I’m rather fond of purple myself. 😉
3. Would you rather be caught in a sharknado or a beeclipse (an eclipse… with bees)? Why?
Erm, probably a beeclipse if I really had to choose because watching Jaws scared me off sharks for life and bees are at least kinda cute (if it was wasps totally different story – I hate wasps)!
4. If you could be any celebrity for a day (alive or dead), who would you choose to be? Why?
I would probably have to go with Natalie Portman. Not only is she stunning (and I would love to look stunning for a day) she gets to star in Thor with Chris Hemsworth (hot!) and Tom Hiddleston (even hotter!) – what I wouldn’t give to be in her shoes for a day!
5. What musician/band(s) have you been listening to lately?
I have been listening to Tegan and Sara a lot lately. Plus going a bit old school indie with The Stone Roses, The Smiths, The Charlatans etc.
6. Cake or pie?
Most definitely cake – I am addicted to sponge!
7. Would you rather live in a dystopia or utopia?
This is going to make me sound strange but I would much rather live in a dystopia – sure utopia sounds good in theory but it would be so boring (and if literature has taught me anything, it is that there is always something nefarious going on behind that super-shiny façade)!
8. What is one thing you’ve always wanted to do, but never done?
I would love to travel the world. It would be great to shuck off all responsibility and just see where the path leads me.
9. Which fictional hero/heroine do you most identify with?
Lucy Pevensie from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. She was a mixture of curious and naive and I really related to her as a young reader.
10. What TV show(s) are you a fan of at the moment?
To name just a few: Game of Thrones; Outlander; Sherlock; The Big Bang Theory; Once Upon a Time; and The Walking Dead.
Here are the questions for my nominees:
1. Who is your favourite Disney villain?
2. Tea or coffee drinker?
3. What animal would be your spirit animal?
4. What are your favourite TV shows?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. What is your favourite childhood book?
7. Would you prefer to have the ability to fly or the ability to turn invisible?
8. What’s your favourite song at the moment?
9. In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
10. What was the last movie you saw at the cinema?

No one is any under obligation to take part or accept this award – just wanted to let you know how much I love all of your blogs!
Thanks so much for nominating me. I look forward to answering your questions. X
You’re very welcome! I really enjoy reading your blog. 🙂
I love your responses! I’d much rather live in a dystopia, too… something sketchy is definitely always happening behind-the-scenes in a perfect Utopia. And good pick with Natalie Portman! I would not mind hanging out with Hiddleston and Hemsworth… 😉 And I so love Lucy Pevensie! <3
Thanks! It was a lot of fun thinking up my answers. 🙂
I know right? It is never as perfect as it looks on the surface – I would rather be somewhere messed up – you know where you stand at least!!
Hiddleston and Hemsworth = <3 lol. Though Loki is more my type! 😉
I love Lucy Pevensie – though it was a close call between her and Anne Shirley. Lucy won out in the end though.
Good! I had a tough time thinking of questions haha 🙂
You’ve got a lot of competition for Loki! So many Loki fangirls… 😉
Oh, Anne Shirley is great, too! I love those two!
I spent ages thinking on which celebrity I would like to be for a day. You are right – a lot of competition for Loki but if I looked like Natalie Portman… no contest! lol 😉
I love Anne too (and Gilbert Blythe – swoon!)
Thanks so much! Some days I’m not sure if anyone besides me ever looks at me blog haha. I look forward to answering your questions!
You’re very welcome! I’m on your blog all the time (not in a stalkerish way though lol). 😉 I am looking forward to seeing your answers.
Thank you so much for the nomination. You just made my day
You’re welcome – I’m really glad you are happy with the nomination! 🙂
Yay – I’m not the only one who would choose to live in a dystopian society!! Thought for sure I would be the odd one out with that! I totally agree – it’s worth a lot more if it is earned rather than being a given. 🙂
I haven’t heard of this award yet..love the name. 🙂
It’s a pretty awesome name! I haven’t read the books but I have seen the film. 🙂
