❄️ Who or what are you most grateful for in life?
Dang! Hitting me with all the really hard questions! I’m grateful for so much and blessed with so much. I always make sure I’m aware of that and I’m constantly saying how grateful I am for my loved ones and for those who have changed me or impacted my life whether it was good or bad. And I’m also grateful for all of YOU! Yes you, dear reader! Without your love, your support, your enjoyment of my content then I probably wouldn’t have my blog or my bookstgram or my other dedicated social media to my love of books. So thank you to all of you who are reading this article, who read my new content, who have supported me on this journey, to my loved ones who may be reading this right now! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! ❤️ I know I say it a lot, but let me say it even more because you can never say it enough; thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! ❤️
❄️ What is your favourite book to film adaptation?

❄️ What are your hopes for your blog in the next year?
Honestly, I just hope my blog keeps growing and more readers stumble upon this little blog. This journey has been incredible and 2019 has been such a wild ride of a year. From hitting my second year on Boookstgram all the way to starting this blog, it has been a remarkable journey and I’m so blessed and grateful for all of those who have jumped on this boat with me. To watch me bloom and to watch my love for books come alive. I’m excited for everything 2020 holds because anything is possible and I have so much planned for 2020, so many surprises and I truly can’t wait!
❄️ You are going away on a relaxing holiday for a week. Where would you go and what five books would you bring with you to reread?
This is so hard! First, I would travel to either Alaska or I would travel to Japan! Okay, okay…I cheated and had to go to my GoodReads and check out some of the books I’ve read in the past. So I think I have them narrowed down! In order…
❄️ It’s nice to be important but it’s important to be nice. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
Jeez, all the hard questions! Okay, okay! I’m about to get really soft and sappy, so just remember that you asked about this. I think the nicest thing anyone has every done for me has been from my spouse. I try to keep certain lines drawn between my personal life and my online presence, but I always like to be honest and as open as I possibly can with all of you. So what I’m about to say I still get choked up about and it’s still very unbelievable for me to wrap my head around so I don’t often think about it because how it impacts me. The nicest thing anyone has done for me has been my spouse loving me, choosing me, and marrying me. And many of you might be saying, “How is that the nicest thing someone has done for you?” I come from a very rough and brutal past, to the point that I learned at a very young age how cruel the world and people truly can be. A lot of my relationships I had gotten into had been very toxic and abusive. When I met my spouse, it was at a point in my life where I was picking up all the pieces and putting everything back together. When they came into the picture, for the first time outside of family and friends, someone saw me, wanted to be with me, and love me for me, scars and all. It felt for the longest time that I had been holding my breath and then suddenly someone told me I could take a breath. Seven years later and we’re still together, and I still can’t wrap my head around it all. It’s like that scene from Lilo and Stitch where Lilo asks for an angel. It kind of feels like that.
❄️ How many books have you read so far this year?
Well according to GoodReads, I have read 94 books so far this year! But don’t count it over yet, we still have a few more weeks before the year is over and I have accepted the challenge!
And those are all the questions by Emer! Holy ghosts were they hard and that second to last one really knocked the wind out of me. I’m still crying, and I’m still soft and emotional from it. But those are the questions and make sure you go check out Emer’s blog! She posts really amazing content and she just a beautiful soul of a person!
