11 question Meme

Been absent for a while, forgive me? I had a good excuse, I promise! Things have been pretty tough lately, but that changes today. Here's a random post that I wanted to take part of! Thanks, Michelle!

& thank you so much to everyone who stuck around.

11 Question Meme

So, my friend Michelle has tagged me in the 11 Question Meme. Michelle was tagged by Komal with a set of questions she had to answer and now she has given me a set that I have to answer. I thought it'd be fun to join in on the questioning :)haha!

Here are my questions and a little more about me.

1. What was your favorite book you read in high school?  
School wise, The Divine Comedy: Inferno (more of a poem actually, but I loved it). YA wise, Daughters of the Moon (I used to be obsessed with that series.)

2. What makes a great hero in a book? 
Their selflessness. They have to be willing to sacrifice what they most love for the greater good.

3. True or False - All is fair in love and war?  
TRUE! So true.....

4. What was the best gift you ever got? 
Having all four of my grandparents present for my 21st birthday celebration. What can I say, I'm family oriented.

5. What's your favorite word to say out loud? 
good word: easy (easy turbo, easy killer, take it easy, etc.)
bad word: (oh!) shit (you get the idea....)

6. What is one blogging goal you have for this year? 
Be more active, have more giveaways, host some book tours (those are my main 3)

7. What is your guilty pleasure? 
Ice Cream! Ice cream never asks silly questions.... Ice cream understands.

8. How would you describe the perfect setting for writing or reading? 
Reading- home alone, sitting on the couch with multiple blankets while it's raining outside... Oh, and a hot chocolate  :) ahhhh! Heaven!

9. What are the top three songs on your playlist? 
Bon Jovi- We weren't born to follow
Avicii- Levels
David Guetta- Night of your life

10. What are you scared of? 

This is going to sound super lame but I'm scared to look out my windows at night. I'm scared to find a face starring back. Oh and I hate it when I'm trying to kill a spider but then I lose track of it and I become a victim in my own home.

11. What came first - the chicken or the egg?
The Chicken.... But that's just my opinion. Being Catholic I believe in creationism, and it would state that the Chicken came first (but don't quote me, I can't answer that in vein, I am not knowledgeable enough of scripture). 

I think we're supposed to tag 11 other people to participate, but I'll go ahead and leave it open to anyone who is willing. Just copy and answer the same 11 questions Michelle gave me and send me your link so I can check out your post! Have fun :)


  1. Girl, it's only been a couple of weeks! No worries - hope everything's ok!! And I seriously hate looking out my windows at night too. You never know!!

    1. Thanks so much, Katie! Everything is much better now. I was mostly out of town visiting my gma, but it looks like things are getting better. Let's pray for the best!

      and yesss! looking out windows at night is frightening!

  2. I'm like you, when I was little I saw a TV show where a woman was followed home, when she looked out of her window this man was staring back at her. Ever since then I haven't been able to go near the windows after dark and the curtains have to be firmly shut. People laugh at me when I say this, but I can't help it. It's scary!

    Great answers. Good to have you back on the blog. :D

    1. Thanks for the kind welcome :)haha! And I woldn't laugh at you.... my blinds are close every evening, no exceptions!

  3. I love ice cream because it never judges. :D And yes to the family thing. I have some REALLY fond memories of family gatherings which were amazing just...having us all there!

    1. hooray for family oriented bloggers! and yesss, ice cream is my all time best friend. never judges, just listens :)haaaaa!

  4. I HATE looking out the windows at night! I am so afraid of the dark. *shivers* Glad you're back! :)

  5. Love your answers!
    I totally get the 21st birthday thing, as none of my grandparents made it to my 18th birthday - my Gran Sophie actually died like, six weeks before my birthday - so yeah, i get it.

    Also, I can't believe you liked Inferno! I had to read it too! but it was far from my favorite - that was El Zarco by I. M. Altamirano, such a fun book! - but oh well. :D P&P would be my general fiction favorite of high school. LOL

    Okay, I'm just babbling. But anyway, great answers, great meme.

    1. you read El Zarco? no wayyyyy! hahahaha! it was a totally fun book :)

  6. I totally agree with your perfect setting! I love that! And I understand why you're scared of looking out your window.... i never thought it that before but i agree... gosh just another thing i'm scared of! And lol whenever i lose a bug in my room i just call a friend to come over with bug spray and tell them to stay until they help me find it. Makes me feel better when i'm not alone with the intruder :)

    1. haaaaaa! alone with the intruder.... I like that :)haha!

  7. A few months ago my mum told me she saw a woman's face outside my bathroom window. Considering, it's impossible for anyone off the street to be standing there (there's a locked gate in the way) I decided it was a ghost. It was funny for a while but now I am terrified of going to the bathroom at night. I always stare at the window and, once, I ran out screaming.

    To this day I don't know if my mum was joking or not. *Shudders*

    1. I would bar up that window and never look out it again.... gosh, i'm such a coward! :)haha
