The Sunshine Blogger Award – Take 5


Hey guys, it’s Lois. I am so sorry I have been gone for a while again. After getting my new job I have been really struggling with my sleep. I am up at 5AM every morning to go to work for 6AM. I am not used to being up at that time of the morning at all, so, I have been spending my afternoons asleep and then eating and going to bed. I think I am getting the hang of it now and I really miss bloggin!

I was tagged by Zuky @ Bookbum in the Sunshine Blogger Award, Zuky is lovely so be sure to check out her blog!. This is take 5 on the Sunshine Blogger Award for me but I am so happy to do this tag again as the questions always change. Thank you so much to Zuky for tagging me in this!

Zuky’s Questions:

1. What is/was your favourite school subject?

My favourite subject at school was Media Studies! I have always found Media interesting and I never got bored in Media lessons. I did start a degree in Media Production but it took me right back to the basics of Media and it just wasn’t for me. I still have a love for Media though and still like researching and learning about the Media industry.

2. Which do you like better, TV or Movies?


It really depends on my mood. Whilst I am writing this I have my TV on in the background with the movie Pulp Fiction playing but really I am watching YouTube videos on my laptop. I never really sit and watch TV anymore. I more often than not have Netflix or YouTube on in the background of whatever I am doing. If I had to choose one over the other I would choose movies.

3. How many books did you read last year?

I read 36 books last year which I was really happy with as it was double the books I read the previous year.

4. How many books have you read this year, so far?

I have read 23 books this year so far, not as many as last year and certainly not as many as I would have hoped to have read by now.

5. And what’s your book goal for this year?

Originally it was 40 books but I recently changed it to 30 books because of how busy I have been and how many reading slumps I have been in.

6. If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?

I think I would change my name to Luna if I had to. I just really like the name Luna and love how unique it is. Saying that though I do love my name and never plan on changing it.

7. If you could learn a new language in 5 minutes, which would you like to learn?

I would love to learn Japanese. I have always been interested in the language but it anigif_enhanced-buzz-24744-1432295601-5.gifseems like a really hard language to learn and I am really bad when it comes to learning languages. I used to be able to speak Spanish after having lessons in it from the ages of 4-17, but I can hardly remember any of it!

8. What colour do you think suits you best?

Dark Blue. I only say that because whenever I wear that colour people always seem to complement me. I don’t really own any dark blue clothing though. I am usually wearing black, white or grey clothes.

9. What is the worst movie you’ve ever seen?

The Reef! It was on Netflix a few months ago and it was horrendous! The acting in it is horrible. It is meant to be a horror movie and it just isn’t scary. I just laughed at the bad acting and the horrible editing. I would never recommend you watch it, other than if you want a good laugh at how bad it is!


10. What’s the worst book you’ve ever read?

The Girl on the Train. I will spare you the details as to why I hate this book because I

have too many reasons and I will go on about it for ages. It is such an uninteresting book! It is one of the only ever books I have DNF.

11. Are you a dog or cat person? 

All day everyday I am a dog person! I mean how can you not love dogs when they can look like this!

Tag You’re It!
