New book excitement!

I was so excited to read over this past week that one of my all time favourite authors Jodi Picoult is having a new book coming out and I am so excited! I haven’t bought a new Jodi Picoult book in a really long time.

Jodi Picoult’s New Novel About Racism Was ‘One of the Hardest’ She’s Ever Written (People/Online article)

It looks like an amazing book, not that I’m bias or anything. With most of Jodi Picoult books that are usually about some kind of topic that can cause some controversy. What I love the most about her writing is that she tends to write the book from every point of view and she does a lot of research for her books. I am not going to write a little short of the article, because I want to try and encourage you all to read the article. Instead of listening to just my point of view of the article and what I think.

What is the perfect pizza?

Without a doubt, when I’m in a hungry mood…or have had a few, I love myself a Domino double bacon cheeseburger…It is amazing! However when I want to feel a bit more “healthier”…As healthy as non-vegetarian pizza can be…I will have a Hawaiian type Pizza.

What is your favorite time of day?

Definitely that time of the day, when you’ve finally relaxed and not actually thinking. Just after you’ve made dinner and you’re sitting down to watch your favourite program.

Show us two of your favorites photographs?  The photos can be from anytime in your life span.  Explain why they are your favorite.

Only two?! I especially like the photos from when I was younger, but also all of my fur and feather babies.

Complete this sentence:  I’m looking forward to…. 

Spending any time at all with my partner this weekend. He’s been on holidays for the past two weeks and we’ve spent little time together. Due to other people, which is funny because everyone has a go at as not spending enough time together.

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen? 

It honestly depends on what I’m using the writing tool for. If it’s something where I might make a mistake, I try to write it in pencil first and then rewrite over in pen. Most of the time though I am writing in pen.

What’s your choice: jigsaw, word, maze or numeric puzzles?

I love to do word puzzles! I have an app on my phone at the moment, that’s an anagram game. Numeric puzzles are not my “thing” and I don’t mind maze and jigsaw puzzles, I just prefer a word puzzle.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

I prefer long hair, I’ve had long hair pretty much all of my life. It has been such a love/hate relationships with my hair. I am always getting compliments about my hair, but these days it takes a lot take care of it and it can get knotty really easily at the moment.

List five some of your favorite blogs.

  1. Compassion Kindness … I love reading the inspirational quotes every day. They bring a smile to my face. I tend to like every single thing they post.
  2. Musings from a Tangled Mind … Just reading all her relatable every day posts, makes me grin.
  3. The Orangutan Librarian … Definitely give this one a read! I can’t read them right now because they’ve written a post about Games of Thrones and I haven’t watched it yet.
  4. Bookmark Chronicles … Probably one of my favourite bloggers on here, very inspirational and thoughtful…Please check this one out!
  5. Upon Raven Wings … Beautifully written posts. Please have a read!

This or That? #32

this-or-that

https://bookmarkchronicles.wordpress.com/2016/03/21/this-or-that-32/

Some of you may not like this question…………sorry (not really). Today you must choose between….

Never reading your favorite book again 

OR

Burning the last three books that you read

This is a horrible question =P lol…Mainly because the last three books I read were all Jodi Picoult books. At the same time though it’s an easy decision because at least those three Jodi Picoult books were not my favourite of hers…Luckily!

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order? 

I only have one sibling, a brother, and he is younger than myself. Although a lot of people always assume that he is the older sibling. I’m not sure if it is our personalities, or because he’s really tall and he’s voice is extremely deep.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Well I don’t drive so I’d rather be the passenger, for the safety of everyone! I am actually studying to get my licence at the moment. Even so, I think that I’d prefer to be the passenger. I worry a lot and the thought of being responsible for other people in a big “thing” does honestly scare me. Even with every person telling me about the freedom of being able to drive.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own?

I love the candles, I am a big candle person. One of my favourite shops is in this little town called “Hahndorf”… They have amazing candles Hahndorf Candle Shop …. Please give them a look!

List at least five of your favorite types of animals?  (any animal to domestic to wild to marine life)

  1. Lions/Lioness
  2. Hyena
  3. Wolves (Dogs in general really)
  4. Warthogs
  5. Owls

I know that some of my choices may seem a little “obscure” but after watching Safari Live now for over a year. I have really come to appreciate some of the animals that most wouldn’t assume as being a “favourite”. Take Warthogs for example, they are AMAZING mothers! So fierce and so protective, and just watching the little piglets rolling around in the mud, all happy. They will bring you joy, I promise!

All of my break ups have been fine, a lot of the times we’ve broken up because it was the “right” thing to do. However, the way they all treated me a couple of weeks later. That was the terrible part, I actually said to my last ex it felt like all of my ex’s had all just secretly hated me, that’s how horrible they were. I still can’t understand it.

I’m 5″2
How much do you weigh?
You should never ask someone that! My weight honestly has been going up and down a bit, especially when I hurt my leg and basically was doing nothing but sitting for a month.

Nope, I would really like one though. I know though I would get bored though and getting the tattoo off would be costly and apparently the lasers used to get them off are really painful.
Any piercings?
One on each ear.
OTP?
It’s funny, I like putting couples together from different television shows or from the same show but different characters. For example, Legolas and Arwen, River Song and Loki. I would have to say though at this moment I love Mary and Francis from the television show “Reign”.

As mentioned above my favourite is probably Reign, but the other that I just love is Homicide Hunter, it has to be one of my favourites of all time.

Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

School was easy for me for years and then Year 6 happened and that was the first year I was ever bullied. This was luckily before cyber bullying was a “thing”, but it was still horrible. I had never had anything horrible to me before and it was a shock to my system.

What is your favorite animal?

Oh my goodness, I have a few favourites. I would have to say that overall my favourite would have to be Lions/Lionesses (you should see my room, I have more Lion things that comic/nerdy things. I have a whole “Pride” all brought from this company Schleich).

After watching the safari drive for months now, I have a few other “favourites”:

  • Elephants
  • Leopards
  • Hyena
  • Buffalo
  • Kudu (they are so pretty!)

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts?

Honestly it depends, there are some pretty cool looking glasses and contacts out there. It would depend on my mood,lol. Ultimately if I HAD to choose I would go with the contacts, mainly because everyone I know who has glasses seem to lose them a lot! They can become very expensive after awhile,lol

List:  Name at least five television shows (past or present) you enjoyed?

  • Buffy/Angel (except for Angels last season)
  • The Bill
  • Doctor Who (Matt Smith is my “favourite” Doctor, I love them all though!)
  • Just the whole of the crime channel pretty much,lol
  • Key and Peele … Classic!lol

  • Favorite Songs
    1. “Uptown Funk” Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars…Not matter what, I stop, listen and dance =D
    2. “Wishing you were somehow here again” Phantom of the Opera…Not a happy song, but it reminds me of a couple of people close to me who have passed and it makes me cry.
    3. Anything Celtic, I just love the sounds. There has never been a celtic song that I’ve heard that I hate, the sound is beautiful!
    4. “Heart of Courage” Two Steps from Hell…It’s a really short song, but will fire you up!
  • Favorite types of animals
    1. Lions (they have always been a top favourite of mine).
    2. Elephants, since watching the safari drives I have this whole new love for them. They are the cutest!
    3. Wolves.
    4. Dragons! They’re real animals, right?
  • Fun things for a rainy day
    1. I LOVE to read
    2. I love playing my computer and catching up on them, or learning new ones.
    3. Sometimes I’ll do spring cleaning on these days.
    4. Sitting in bed and watching movies and having movie marathons.
  • Things I want to have in my home (paintings, hot tubs, book cases, big screen tv etc)
    1. I still want one more shelf that can fit even more of my books, but some of my figurines too!
    2. I need a lamp in my room,lol
    3. I want a whole room dedicated to reading and where I can write my Blog, an office type thing
    4. For my dining room area, I would love to have a huge glass window outdoor area, that is connected from the inside to the outside. I have seen beautiful dining rooms that can walk out onto the patio like it’s one big dining area. Just beautiful!

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
