The Sunshine Blogger Award


Thank you, Becky at Velvet Spade Reads, for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

The Rules

The guidelines for this award are straightforward:

  • Thank the blogger(s) that nominated you in the post and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you
  • Nominate 8-11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award Logo on your post and/or in your blog.

Becky’s Questions:

  1. If you could get your hands on an ARC of any book coming out (doesn’t even have to be one that is announced yet), what would it be?
    • I know I sing the great Penny Reid’s praises often, but it is with good reason. If I could get my hands on any ARC, it would be Dr. Strange Beard because 1. I love her Winston Brothers series sooooo much, 2. Roscoe intrigues me the most of all the brothers and 3. He’s a freaking veterinarian. Ya just gotta love a man who loves animals!
  2. If you could spend the summer anywhere, where would you go?
    • Hmmm…. Anywhere? Then someplace utterly romantic! Like the Greek Isles or the coast of France! I live just an hour and a half from the beach, but I rarely get there. What a waste…. LOL
  3. You have to sacrifice any book to the bookish Gods, what book do you give them?
    • It’s a sacrifice so it has to be one I like then, right? Probably To Kill A Mockingbird, because I think it is the greatest novel ever written. But I’d hate to get rid of my copy… It’s a first edition that belonged to my mother. So… maybe I can switch to another great? John Green’s Looking for Alaska? I put way too much thought into these things… LOL
  4. If you could only read one genre for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
    • Romance. Definitely. I used to HATE romance novels. I would actually look down my nose at people who read them. But now I can’t live without them! It’s not a sex thing (though I do love a little heat in my fiction). They always have a happy ending and leave me feeling hopeful about life. And they often make me LAUGH! Plus, there’s the sex… haha!
  5. What is the least favorite job you’ve ever had?
    • Ugh! I used to work at the Disney Store in the mall! Retail is bad enough, but the music! I think I have too much anxiety to work in such a crowded store with so many kids…. And the rules — too many rules for me. It was almost enough to make me hate the entire Disney Universe!
  6. What is the best job you’ve ever had?
    • I used to volunteer at the National Air & Space Museum in their Stars Wars exhibit! That was AMAZING! I also really like the one I have now. I work in the Marketing Department of our local hospital and I get to write a lot and manage their social media accounts.
  7. How do you feel about camping?
    • It’s not really for me. This is going to make me sound totally high maintenance, but hey, the truth hurts. I need daily showers. And I don’t like to get dirty and I HATE bugs! For me, I’m outdoorsy in that I like to drink wine on the back porch!
  8. What is your favorite summer time drink?
    • Beer! I love a good grapefruit shandy or an ice cold lager. The colder the better.
  9. You’re borrowing your best friends time machine for a day – where would you go?
    • My bestie would have a time machine! I’d like to go back to high school. I’d like to find the 15-year-old me and tell her not to worry so much about what other people think of her. That she was pretty great and not to be so shy. Wait. Maybe I should go back five minutes and tell the modern me that too! LOL
  10. If you could only use one form of social media, which would you pick?
    • Probably Facebook. I appreciate Insta a lot. I love looking at photos but I need words to express myself and a lot of them so Twitter won’t work either! Plus I don’t really “get” Twitter. Does anybody get Twitter? Somebody explain Twitter to me!
  11. Got any real summer plans?
    • Not as many as I’d like, but my Fall is heating up! My fiance and I are saving up to get married in March so we’re sticking close to home this summer. So, I guess my biggest plans would be to close on the purchase of my very first home! OMG, when did I get OLD?!?


I nominate:

Again, if tags aren’t your thing, don’t feel like you have to participate. These are just a few of the bloggers I’d like to learn a little more about!

My questions:

  1. If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the genre be?
  2. How did you get into blogging?
  3. Do you like to travel? Show me your best travel photo!
  4. You’re having dinner with three authors — who is coming to dinner? (And please invite me! LOL)
  5. What brings you the most joy in life?
  6. It’s girls’ night! Just you and your bestie…. What’s for dinner?
  7. What is your spirit animal?
  8. What’s your favorite quote (from a book, song, movie, etc.)?
  9. Have any pets?
  10. Do you have any shows you binge watch?
  11. If you had the chance to live your dream – where would you be and what would you do?

Thanks for the nomination, Becky! And thank you in advance to those who choose to participate; I can’t wait to read more about you!
