MERCI! MERCI! MERCI!

Yay, my second time participating in this award!! Thanks so much to BiBi @ Bibi’s Book Blog for nominating me! You are so fun to talk to and I love how much you interact with everyone in the community. I feel that all new bloggers should take a look at Bibi, cause she’s got it going on! (That totally sounded like I’m hitting on you :P) Anywho, she’s amazing and everyone should check her blog out!

THREE THINGS ABOUT ME!

  1. I’m half-asian! My mom is from the Philippines and my Dad is half Greek/Scottish. One day I would love to try one of those DNA ancestry tests to see what the breakdown is.
  2. I am deathly AFRAID of bees or wasps. Or anything big and flying. I would love camping if bugs were not involved. I flinch and run.
  3. I hate the sound of chewing. I literally can’t think if I hear someone chewing. And of course, I had to marry the loudest chewer on the planet lol. Other than that, I’m pretty normal-ish?

QUESTIONS FROM BIBI

 

If you could live any book (or book series), which one would you choose?

Hmmm, it’s totally hard for me not to say the Wizarding World of Harry Potter because I feel like I would totally rock being a wizard.

I would also consider living in the Kate Daniels universe, only if I get to be a shapeshifter…something cat like.

Have you ever read a book that you would be embarrassed to be caught reading?

 

I think I was embarrassed at the time I was reading Fifty Shades of Grey, because I think I was still living with my parents and I definitely did not want to explain to my parents what I was reading….

 

 

 

Do you have an “old reliable” book (or series) that you find yourself reading over and over again?

I actually don’t actually like re-reading books, unless it’s been years. I think anything written by Nicholas Sparks is what I would consider that “old reliable” comfort read, if I do feel like re-reading.

What’s your biggest pet peeve in books?

Instant love I think is the biggest pet-peeve, especially in alot of YA contemporaries. Or when characters have a misunderstanding that can easily be fixed if they TALKED to each other.

Which book would you recommend for me?

Where do I begin…

Nominees:

Carolina // Kaleena // Molly // Caidyn and Chantel // Erin

All are lovely bloggers and deserve attention! Please stop by and follow all of them!

Also, if you would like to do the tag – please feel free to do it, and let me know :).

My Questions:

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. Now that half the year is done, what are your goals for your reading and blogging for the rest of the year?
  3. Which fictional character would be your real-life BFF?
  4. Who’s your favourite villain (book or movie)?
  5. You’re speaking to an acquaintance who has something in their teeth, do you tell them or not? Would you want someone to tell you?

And that’s a wrap! Thank you again for the nomination!!

    Aww Maddie thank you so much for nominating me! I’m gonna have so much fun answering your questions! Haha I love flying animals too, in fact I’m afraid of any animals 😂 and OMG I hate when people make a sound when they chew God!!!! Wizarding World is the best place to live, and ughhh insta love is the worst, I’m sick of that kind of trope!

    Haha thank you sooooo much for the amazing shout out. I am taken, but who doesn’t like some love ❤ a girl gotta take all the compliments she can 😂 Great answers! I’ll definitely check out the recommendations. And insta love and lack of communication skills are definitely on my list too. I HATE when someone goes on and on about a misunderstanding, instead of just speaking their mind. Ugh! 😦

    Aww Maddie! Bees are nice! ❤ Wasps are sent from Satan & should all die horrible deaths but don't it out on the bees 😀 …. I love bees ❤

    Also we are pet peeve twinsies! I abhor insta-love and there are TOO MANY (mostly romance) novels out there in which the only conflict revolves are the fact that the main characters can't have an honest conversation with each other. This is usually even more annoying because by the end they've generally been intimate somehow BUT STILL can't tell the other person how they feel. AHHHHHHHHH!!! ❤

    • Maddie // Munch Reviews says:

      Haha, I can never tell which one is which since I won’t get close enough to one so I’ve written them off. I won’t kill them (unless provoked!).

      Also add mosquitos too… I dislike mosquitos. I will tolerate dragonflies only because they eat them!

      Yay for twinsies!! ❤❤ Way too many insta-loves! like if you’re writing is good, I will stick around for that smoldering slow burn. Or like in the Kiss Quotient where it was over a few months instead of a week!

      I wonder if it’s because we as the reader can see the whole picture so we hate when a character is self-internalizing all this pain and hurt, but like just talk to each other friends! ❤

    Love your answers! I can’t stand chewing either and am deathly afraid of bees! Eek! I’ve never been stung and don’t plan to!

    And I’m also half-Asian! My mom is full Chinese, and my dad is Irish/Spanish (from Spain). 🙂

    Thank you so much for the tag! I am so excited to answer your questions 🙂

    I have to agree with the insta-love thing, too! I can LOVE a book, but when I get to that point it’s like I snap out of that world because it’s just too unrealistic for me. I’ve been “borrowing” Fifty Shades from a friend for like two years (eek!) because I am too embarrassed to get past the first few chapters…

    Ha ha!! Fifty Shades would be an embarrassing book for most people to have their parents see them reading… Meanwhile, in my messed up life me, my sister and my mother all read the fifty shades books together!! 😂😂😂 Well, I only made it through the first 2… I just couldn’t get passed all the bad writing! 😅
