The Sunshine Blogger Award. #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Bloggers

SunshineBloggerAward

I did The Sunshine Blogger Award – !!here!! not too long ago (the end of August) so I’m not going to ask any questions of my own or nominate any other bloggers this time around because I’m lazy. 🙂 I was, however, nominated by Liz (massive thanks) over at Cover to Cover recently and as she asked some really cool questions I wanted to answer them.👍

The Tag Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and ask them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post/or on your blog.

Liz’s Questions:

1. Two bookworms walk into a bar… what happens next?

They look around bewildered and confused as to their surroundings and realise that they are in the wrong place. Then, slowly, very slowly they apologise for the intrusion, back out the door and walk to the nearest bookshop and the comfort of familiarity.

Or……..

They order a drink, chat about authors and books, have some more drinks, order some food, have even more drinks, have dessert, have another drink, get a room and then reenact their favourite scenes from their favourite books. They then realise that this is a brilliant idea and that it is a fantastic concept for a book and hey presto the bookasutra is born!😂📚😱😝

2. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 becomes a reality, what will you do to save the books?

Well……..

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… The A-Team.

I’d hire The A-Team.

3. You’re hosting a dinner party and you can invite 4 (dead or alive) authors – who and why?

Well, if I invited dead authors depending on the level of decomposition they’d either stink the place up or be bones. If they stunk the place up no-one would want to eat through gagging. If they were bones, how would they eat? It’d go in the mouth and drop straight out again!😂 And, what if they’d been cremated?! They’d just be a pile of ash!⚱️I guess, if that was the case then I could put the ash in the pepper pot and offer the other guests pepper for their food.😂

OK, I’d invite R J Barker, John Gwynne, Nicholas Eames and Joe Abercrombie solely because I think it’d be a pretty cool group.👍

4. If you could be an author of a published book, which book/author would it be?

The Dictionary.👍

5. You’re stranded in the wilderness all alone, it’s a lot of feet of snow outside and you have supplies to last you a month. You find a magic wand which allows you to bring to life 1 character from a book to spend time with you…… which character would you choose and what would you get up to?

Yennifer of Vengerberg from The Witcher series of books by Andrej Sapkowski and we’d spend the time…….. crocheting.😱😂😝

6. You need to plot revenge on a fellow bookworm (for whatever reason, they tore your favourite book to pieces, let’s say), how do you pay back?

I don’t. I forgive and forget believing in the power of positivity and sharing the love. After all, we all make mistakes so I’d move on, not worrying about the past transgression, grievous though it is and invite the offending bookworm to come and sit around a campfire with me, making daisy chains, singing hymns and braiding each others hair (obviously I lack hair so it’d have to be my beard). Peace y’all.

Ah, fuck that shit! We’d fight in an anything-goes hardcore rules last bookworm standing barbwire 1,000 light-tubes deathmatch.

7. If you could read in a foreign language, which language would it be?

OK, I’ll just come out and write it…..female, I wish I could read in female! That way it might help me to understand them!😱😂😝

8. Has a book ever angered you? Which book and why?

Under the Dome by Stephen King. 1,000 pages of awesomeness that finishes with 50 pages of drivel. Worst. Ending. Ever!

tenor (3) (1)

There’s a few other books but, ya know, if I explained why they angered me I’d have to veer into spoiler territory.

9. Which fictional character is most like you?

I’m most like John Snow as I know nothing.

10. What is the most unique thing you have ever learned about through reading a fictional book?

That it is possible for a T-Rex to copulate with a human woman! I mean, it’s in a book surely it has to be true?! I presume that the author did research on the subject. I know T-Rex’s were a huge type of dinosaur but they had tiny arms so perhaps they had another tiny appendage too and well, ya know…….

And finally…

11. What is your favourite classic?

I’ve not read many classics so I don’t have many to choose from but out of the ones I’ve read my favourite is Dracula by Bram Stoker.

      1. yeah I know. I hate 80’s shows rebooted. The originals are better than the new ones, They never get right.

  1. LMAO! Learn female? Hahahaha Good luck with that. You’d still NEVER understand us. 😛
    Crocheting, eh? 😉 😉 😉
    I love the A-Team. I used to hero-worship them lol.
    OMG, a T-rex copulating with a woman? Where did you read that? People come up with all kind of weird shit!!!
    As always, Drew, your unique outlook is priceless. 😀

    1. Yes, crocheting.👍👌 A nice and clean way to spend the time.😂

      Yeah, learn female, won’t do me any good but.🤔😜

      Well, dino porn, all those book covers I did in fun and inappropriate book covers posts.😂

      The A-Team was amazing! My favourite show as a kid, loved it!

      I’ll take priceless! I like to be unique in tags.😂

  2. I don’t even know which one of these answers to comment on. There are so many good ones here. I want to ask more about dinosaur-human copulation, but I’m kinda scared. Do I want to know? Also, why the dictionary?

    1. Well, ya know dino porn is a book genre and I presume that the authors have researched it so I guess it has to be possible for a dino to have sex with a human! Surely books wouldn’t lie to me! I did think dinosaurs were extinct but I guess the author found some somewhere and went about experimenting!

      Erm…..the dictionary. No reason other than it was a weird answer and for the sh#ts and the giggles! 🙂

  3. Again with the dino porn, are you sure you don’t have an obsession? 😂😂
    Learn to read female, haha, that made me laugh 😂😝All I can say is you can try, I don’t know how well you’ll succeed in that 😝
    Haha, your favourite classic is Dracula… because you’re a vampire I get it 😂😂😂

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Yes, how did you now? Dracula is really about me so I had to pick it.😱😂😜

      No, it’s Dracula because along with Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad it’s the only classic that I actually really liked. I’ve not read many but have struggled with most apart from those two.

      I’d fail, obviously, far too tricky and confusing for me it’d be.😂😱😜

      Lol, no, dino stuff just amuses me. Ever since those damn fun book covers posts it’s made me giggle.

      1. I am female; I know everything! 😝😂

        Ugh, I’ve read both and they are both very, very dry and I didn’t like them. Although I probably hated Heart of Darkness more because I was forced to read it in school.

        Well, I wouldn’t say you’d fail, you’d probably give up 😝Why would you want to understand us anyways? 🤔😂

        I think it amuses you too much😂😂😂

      2. I guess, I found Dracula to be really hard to read, but I did it. I’ve never read Frankenstein so I have no idea how that is like. 😝

        HA! Even if you could “read female” do you think it would really make life easier? 😝😂It’s sweet that you think so, and that you’d like to understand us 😉

  4. Hahahaha 😀
    I kinda prefer my dinner guests alive too.

    #5 … LOL! 😀 She looks very capable of crocheting indeed!

    I’m with you on #7… would love if men could speak more female and i could speak more “dude” 😀

    Under the Dome was… quite something. I love Stephen King, and love everything he writes, but i did question the ending of that book. It just seemed like an ending for a completely different story :/

    Liked by 1 person

    1. The ending sucked! Teenage aliens playing a game, sigh.😢😞😕🙄😒 I really think it would have been better if either everyone died and the dome remained and then in an epilogue set a few years later someone was walking a dog, etc and the dome had just disappeared or even the dome just vanished, no reasons why and let the reader come to their own conclusion behind it.

      Lol, I’m sure she’s great at crocheting and yeah, dead guests just isn’t cool or fun.😂

      1. I thought it will be revealed that it was some kinda military experiment. Maybe military experiment with/something to do with aliens. I think i could have dealt with aliens better that way 😀

  5. Duuuude, you tottally cracked me up with your answers! hahaha @ A-Team – also read that in the A-Team voice and all, and then went on to the music in my head 😀 hahaha
    The dictionary, the crocheting, the dino porn- You’re the tag-master, mate!

    Ugh!!! I know!!!! I was so upset when I reached the end. It was my first Stephen King book too lol Did you ever watch the TV show?

    1. King has a tendency towards dodgy endings but damn Under The Dome really took it to a whole new level of WTF. It was as though he didn’t know how to end the book and came up with whatever he could.

      I watched the first series but wasn’t really into it and from reviews the following series didn’t sound great so I didn’t bother with it at all. I’d hope it had a better ending than the book though!
