I was nominated for the 28th time by Ali from Ali’s Books for the Sunshine Blogger Award. She just tagged me in her post yesterday so I am surprised I am getting mine posted so soon after being tagged. I think I just really loved the questions she asked and they were easy to answer. I know I said this last time but I still can’t believe I still get nominated for this award. Thank you so much for the nomination Ali. If you aren’t following her blog already please head over and give her a follow. She is like me and reads a variety of books especially romance.

List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your post/or on your blog.
1.) What has been your favorite book(s) this year?
So far this year I have read 58 books and of those I have given 12 of them 5 star ratings and because of that it’s hard to just pick 1 favorite so I will pick 3 which was still pretty hard to do. It was so hard to pick these 3 because I kept going but I loved this one to.
What is your most anticipated release for the latter half of this year?
I don’t really keep up with new releases. That being said though I do keep up with the releases for 2 authors that I love. Nicholas Sparks is my all time favorite author and I get every book he releases. Kerri Maniscalco has become a favorite author as well and I get all of her books. Both of these books I have preordered.
Are there certain tropes you steer away from while reading?
No not really. I pretty much love all tropes even though admittedly some are better than others. The only thing I really try to steer clear of is cheating but I wouldn’t call that a trope.
Name a topic/subject/thing you wish you saw more of in books.
For me I would love more wheelchair rep and what would make it even better is if they were in the wheelchair for similar reasons as me. I am a double amputee and I use a wheelchair all of the time except when I am at home.
Name one book you think everyone should read.
There are so many books that I love that I wish everyone would read but I am going to go with one of my favorites again because it was an amazing book.
Do you like a strict reading schedule, or are you a total mood reader? Or somewhere in between?
I think I will say somewhere in between because sometimes I stick strictly to my TBR and sometimes I need to do a bit of mood reading. I will say that I lean mostly toward the TBR side of things though.
Do you have one author that over the years has never disappointed you – you’ve loved all of their books?
I would normally say Nicholas Sparks for questions like this but I have given several of his books 3 stars and while for me that’s not a bad rating at all it just means I thought it was ok and just liked it not loved it. The only other authors I can think of are Kerri Maniscalco and James J. Cudney. I have given every book that I have read by both of these authors a 4 or 5 star rating
Do you tend to stick to one genre or do you prefer reading ALL the books?
I prefer reading ALL of the books but I will say I love me some romance. It doesn’t have to be a full blown romance novel either although I love those too.
What is your favorite book-to-movie adaptation?
This is a hard question because I can separate the two forms and love them individually for what they were so most of the time even if the adaptation didn’t really stick to the book I will still end up enjoying it. I am totally blanking on all of the adaptations I have watched but some that come to mind that I enjoyed are The Hunger Games movies, the Twilight movies and Love, Simon but there are so many more.
What book/series would you like to see as a movie/series?
I am going to have to agree with Ali on this one and go with The Infernal Devices trilogy. I loved this trilogy back when I first read them and I just started rereading the first book and I am still loving it. I would absolutely love to see this come alive on the big screen.
How do you like to get your books? Publishers, Netgalley, buy, borrow, book boxes, etc.?
Honestly I don’t care how I get my books so long as I am getting them. I am pretty sure I have gotten books in all the ways you have mentioned Ali. Right now I have to cut back on spending so free is better but I love owning books especially the ones I love.
This was so fun to do. I love when people ask me questions that I can easily answer. Thank you so much for the nomination Ali. I’m not going to be tagging anyone because I am lazy but just know if you are reading this then you deserve this nomination. If you want to answer Ali’s questions then please just link back to a specific post of mine as well as Ali’s so we can see your answers.
