The Book Blogger Get To Know Me Tag

I was tagged in this great tag by the wonderful Laura from Laura's Little Book Blog. This tag was created so that we could get to know our book bloggers a little better - you know other than the fact we read and like to share our opinions. Thanks Laura for tagging me, lets get this ball rolling.

Tell us Five random facts about you:

1. When I was little I used to run after the penguins at the zoo trying to tell them the jokes on the back of penguin bars. 

2. I crochet - yet! Screw the granny stereotype, it's cool ;) 

3. Matt Smith is my Doctor

4. I whole heartedly agree that Bow Ties are cool!

5. Last christmas I got both the Walking Dead box set and the new Tinkerbell movie - I do believe this says EVERYTHING about me. 

When is your Birthday?

27th October. As I was growing up it always fell in half term so I would make a week of it. Despite what my parents said, it was my birth week and I was going to stretch it out as long as I could! Also I'm the same age as Disney Land Paris, we went for my 5th birthday and they had decorated the castle with this huge 5 badge and I thought it was all for me. 

What is your favourite colour?

Green. Any and all shades. I love it! 

What is your favourite memory?

I actually don't think I can pick one. I have so many great ones! I think I'm going to say every christmas I've ever had! I'm a massive Christmas lover and I get a little obssesed... a couple of years ago my brother started calling me The Christmas Nazi. 

Name five of your favourite songs

This changes every day but at the moment its:

1. Beating Heart by Ellie Goulding

2. How Long Can I Love You by Ellie Goulding

3. All of Me by John Ledgend

4. Do You Want To Build A Snowman from Disney's Frozen

5. Say Something  by A Big Great World

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Oh jeeze! I'm such a foodie this would be torture!! If I had to say it was probably be pasta. Well in truth it would be skittles but I don't think I'd live very long just living off the rainbow. 

What is something you really dislike?

Just one? Waxworks!! My dad took me to a waxwork museum when I was about 12 and I cried the whole way around. It's creepy and unnatural!! Why? Just WHY?

Summer or Winter?

Autumn. Just to be awkward. Summer's too hot and Winter's too cold. I love the colour of the fall and the change in nature. Also ever notice how there's always great TV in the fall??

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

I tend to romanticise certain places. But I think I would want to live in New York - I need to visit Italy but I'm not sure I could live there. So New York. 

Name your five favourite films

1. Frozen

2. Harry Potter

3. Jane Eyre - the Michael Fassbender adaptation

4. Love Actually 

5. Rent

If you won the lottery what would you buy?

First off I'd pay off my parents mortgage, I think it's the least I can do. Then I'd buy a house in Notting Hill and open my own bookstore. It will be cosy and girly and all things vintage. With big comfy seats to read and a rather cute shop boy. 

Favourite day of the week?

I don't think I have one. Sorry. 

What three things would you take to a desert island?

My best friend. A camping stove & Nathan Fillion. I'm not sure how I would get a hold of him but I think he's be good entertainment on those long LONG island nights. 

Sweet or Savoury?

Hands down Sweet!

  1. Great answers Emily! I love how you used to chase after the penguins at the zoo and try and share the penguin bar jokes with them. That is so cute! xx

    1. Thanks for tagging me it was fun :) haha well my parents definitely like to bring it up in conversation a lot! That and how I used to crawl up and down the stairs with a yellow feather duster. Child safety wasn't quite as strict in the 90's apparently. Xx
