It’s my one-year blog anniversary!
I never thought I’d get this far. This all started out as a way to combat postpartum depression. I have come to deeply love this community and still get gleeful every time I see a like/comment on here.
I appreciate and thank you for all your support and hope to continue providing a joyful, bookish blog.
Now the fun part.
I CREATED MY OWN TAG. Hot dang. To help y’all get to know me (and vice versa) I have created this Get to Know the Blogger Tag.
Also, if you have any questions for me, I would LOVE for you to leave them in the comments and I will make another post with the answers.
- Thank the person who tagged you!
- Link back and credit the original creator (myself: GoodeyReads)
- Answer book questions about yourself.
- Answer the other questions about yourself.
- Change the last 5 questions when you tag someone else (if you want! – the more random the better)
- Tag at least 3 people.
- Have fun! (ooh, that was cliche)
A book about where you’re from (City, State, Country – your choice).
Kingdom of Ash and Briars by Hannah West
I’m from the South (USA), and the best I could find (off the top of my head) was this book! It’s by an author in Austin, Texas. I don’t know much about it, but it sounded pretty interesting. A mix of different retellings put together.
A book about your favorite non-bookish hobby.
Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall
I LOVED READING THIS BOOK. If you enjoy running in any way (walking totally counts), read this. I was fascinated and captivated and found it so informative. One of my favorite non-fiction reads.
A book about a fear of yours.
Skyward (Skyward #1) by Brandon Sanderson
I am so utterly terrified of flying. I mean seriously. It’s bad. Dramamine is my drug of choice to sleep my way there. Not only am I freaked out by the concept of being stuck in a metal tube without any control, I also get sick being that high and I get so miserable.
Spensa flying in those tiny ships all day? Yeah, I’m going to say NOPE for me.
A book about something that brings you joy.
Bright Burning Stars by A.K. Small
Okay, up front: this book itself is not joyful. BUT, it’s about dancing. And I attended dance lessons from 3-18. I still turn on the music loud and dance around the house with my toddler. I love it, it’s cathartic. I also feel better about a good dancing session.
A book about your career/what you’re studying in school.
Human Anatomy & Physiology by Elaine N. Marieb, Katja Hoehn
I studied health in school, yet apparently haven’t read many specific health books since. This is a 1,200+ page textbook that I essentially read cover to cover for one of my classes. Hands down one of the hardest courses I ever took (it was one of those where a 70 on a test was considered an 90+).
What job would you be terrible doing?
Motivational speaker. I have such a fear of legit public speaking (not talking small group stuff, I’m okay there, but like hundreds of people kinda groups). I was asked to speak in church last week and had to say no because I literally started shaking as I was asked.
What’s a subject you wish you knew more about?
Anything medical/nutriotional. My degree is in health (and my dad and husband both have medical based careers) so I am always looking for great medical books to read.
In your opinion, what is the best day on the calendar and why?
July 4th. Y’all, my favorite holiday is the fourth of July. I AM OBSESSED with all things patriotic. I dress up in crazy outfits, make (and consume) a bunch of food and soak up all the sun. USA USA USA!
Oh, and I guess my birthday. I may or may not plead with my husband to celebrate a birthday week.
What is the craziest item you spent way too much on?
My treadmill. I dearly love it (and dearly need to get it fixed), but dude. Those things are pricey.
What’s a quirky thing you do?
Whenever I’m concentrating on something I stick my tongue out. This is anything from a test, to a Bookstagram photo shoot. Luckily my husband finds this adorable. I’ve been doing this since at least middle school.
I’m tagging more than 3 people to hopefully get this out there!
