For today’s post, I’m tackling catching up on tags and participating in a fun blogger award at the same time! I’ll be doing The Sunshine Blogger Award and I’ll be doing it big! Because I was tagged by not one, not two, but three of my wonderful blogging compatriots. Seriously, Leah @ Leah’s Books, Livy @ Shelves of Starlight, and Danni @ _ForBooksSake are some of the best folks in the blogging community 💖 I love each of their bookish blogs, so you should definitely check them out!
So I’m sure if you’ve been around the blogging community for any amount of time, you know about The Sunshine Blogger Award. It was created to boost those in the community who are “creative, positive, and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.” I personally love it because I love learning more about the various bloggers I follow! Before I jump into answering Leah, Livy, and Danni’s questions, though, let’s take a look at…
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog (Thank you, Leah and Livy and Danni!)
- Answer the eleven questions prompted by the person who nominated you
- Nominated eleven new bloggers to receive the award and write them eleven new questions
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog
#1. If you could travel to one historical period, when would it be?
Honestly, being a Black woman, this question always makes me pause. Because if we think racism is bad now… That being said, I’d love to visit the Renaissance period when artist like Da Vinci were at work. There was just so much beautiful and creative work done during that time period! Or if I could go see a Shakespearean play at The Globe during the height of his fame, that would be incredible!
#2. What drew you to your favorite genre initially?
Gonna be honest and say the dragons. One of my favorite series as a kid was the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede. I was obsessed with those books and, once I had finished them, I snatched up anything dragon/fantasy adjacent. I haven’t looked back since! Fantasy is and will probably continue to be my favorite genre of all time.
Also, the princess in this series is legitimately one of my favorite heroines ever. Cimorene is awesome!
