Last month I’ve been nominated to the Sunshine Blogger Award I’m honored to be doing it for the first time. I’m so thankful for this community and I can’t believe that I’ve been nominated for this after only a few months of blogging. Thank you so much to Rukky @eternity Books for tagging me!

5 -Ask the nominees 11 new questions
Questions I’m answering:
1 – What book series do you want to see as a TV adaptation?
As both a Fantasy YA & Romance Reader, I always love it when there’s a mix of both these genres. But, it’s always hard to adapt a fantasy book into a Tv series. Most of the time it looks weird and cheap. Still, I would love to see “An Ember in the Ashes ” as a Fantasy YA Tv series or one of Colleen Hoovers books as a heartbreaking romance series.
2 -What supernatural creature do you think we need to see more of in fiction?
I honestly love this question. I’ve thought about it and there are so many Vampire and Werewolf books and stories, but what about Mermaids ? Or Unicorns ? Why can’t there be unicorns in our YA worlds ? Also: I love Jinns in books, but they are almost never the protagonist, so why not create a story from the point of view of a Jinn ?
Just putting it out there 😉
3- What author would you love to see more books from?
There are so many, I can’t really choose one. So I’m going for three authors. Jennifer Gruenke, author of ‘Of Silver & Shadow’ . Christina Lauren, author of f.e. ‘The Unhoneymooners’ and Sabaa Tahir, author of ‘An Ember in the Ashes’.
4 – How do you choose which book to read?
Again, love this question. I will dedicate a whole Blog post to this question, but I’ll give you a short insight into my brain when choosing a book. First of all, I mostly only read books, I know I’ll like. There are a few genres I adore, and then there are genres I strictly avoid. If I would to pick up a Horror novel, chances are I won’t like it. Even if other readers and people tell me it’s an amazing book.
Another thing I do is, I go by authors. If there’s a book I really loved, I’ll check out the author and see what other books she/he published. Then I’ll tackle one book after another by this author if the premise sounds interesting.
5 – Which genre do you want to read more of?
Mystery and crime ! I read a lot of romance and YA novels, but I want to get back to my roots a little bit. When I started reading books as a teenager, I loved crimes and mystery. I don’t know why, but now I only read romance & Ya . I want to change that .
6 -Which genre do you want to read less of ?
Romance & Ya, so I have time for Mystery and crime hahaha. No, I love Ya Novels too much to read less of them. But I could read less romance for sure. Most of the time they have the same plot anyways. And lately I haven’t been enjoying them very much.
7 – Do you like doing tags?
I love doing Tags. They are extremely fun to do and they let you form this bond with bloggers and readers. And I can always discover new bloggers and get inspired.
8 – How many books do you read at a time?
Depends on my time and on my mood. Normally, I only read around 2 books at a time. More than that leads to me getting confused and then I often drop a book for the one I’m more into, which is a little unfair. So, 2 at a time works for me !
9 – What are some good bookish habits that you’re proud of?
One thing I’m proud of is that I always immediately put the book I want to read on my Goodreads tbr. That way, I won’t forget them. I also really take care of my beautiful shelf, so I add new books but I also remove a few from time to time, so that it doesn’t get too long.
Another thing I’m good at, is reading the sequel to a book I liked. That could be a few months, even years later,-but I’ll read them ! And I’m proud of that xD
10 – What are some bad bookish habits that you’re trying (or not) to break?
I want to DNF books more often and earlier. I rarely DNF a book, even if I don’t really like it,- I’ll still skim through it. Which is so stupid, because if I don’t like it, why should I keep on reading ? It’s something I really have to learn and finally break this bad habit.
11 – Who’s your favorite book influencer?
This is such a hard question, because I never really thought about it. I am active on Bookstagram and I love the community there. I don’t really have a favorite book influencer. But there are a few book influencers, who inspire me and who taught me valuable lessons. Cassidy from @Cassidyreads, is one of them ! She’s a huge romance lover, and even though she has a big number of followers, she is extremely down to earth and engages with everyone. Absolutely inspirational, when it comes to being a kind person and valuing other people’s opinions.
@amyleabooks is also one influencer, who inspires me. Again, down to earth and humble, she reviews and talks about contemporary romance books with complete honesty. Her outfits are also amazing !
You don’t have to be big on Instagram, to be an amazing Influencer and Khanh &Jerry from @letrinhdairy show you that ! Their feed is absolutely stunning, with a lot of personality and flare. Their reviews have a lot of substance and help me decide, whether I should read the book or not.
