20 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I don't usually post these list things, not because I don't love them, but just because I don't usually have the time to sit down and devote to them. Believe it or not I find that these things take more time to type out than book reviews! I'm not one for talking about myself. Thanks to Christy J. from Southern Sassy Things for tagging me though. She definitely knew I needed to write out a blog post! It's been over a week! Be sure to visit my fellow blogger who was also tagged by Christy, Rissi from Dreaming Under the Same Moon. Not only can that girl write, just check out her blog layout. Gorge!!;-)

On to the fun stuff, aka my juiciest secrets...

How tall are you? 
Average height.

Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what? 
I like to sketch with just a pencil and some paper. Still lifes are fun, but I've been known to draw pics of my dog Coco when I'm really bored!

What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve? 
I hate blinkies. Too many on a blog are just a major distraction.

What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
Mean people.

What’s your favorite song?
I have so many, but right now it's "Black Widow" by Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora.

What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?
I love Christy's shop, Belle on a Budget for jewelry and beads. For vintage inspired fashion, I love to window shop at GatsbyLady!

What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Thinking about how awesome I am... KIDDING!!! I really enjoy reading, but that's pretty much a given since I'm a book blogger, right? I'll say my other favorite activity is binge watching Netflix -- especially Doctor Who and Sherlock!

What’s your favorite junk food?
Pizza! Who doesn't love a good pie?

Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
 I live with a collie and a cat. Coco and Oreo.

What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
I don't read much nonfiction. I'm so boring.
Jane Eyre is one of my many favorite fiction books!

What’s your favorite beauty product?
I absolutely adore Rimmel London's Volume Accelerator mascara. My eyelashes are pitiful, but this stuff really makes them stand out. The best part -- no clumps!

When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
More like when was I NOT embarrassed. I'm always saying or doing something silly.

If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
FINALLY! An easy question. Most definitely Mountain Dew.

What’s your favorite movie? 
Aaaaand we now return you to your regularly scheduled, impossible-to-answer questions...  Guys. Seriously. I don't know. I have too many favorites. Kate & Leopold, Pride and Prejudice, North and South, Gone with the Wind, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Breakfast at Tiffany's....

What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
None of the above.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I think it would be fun to live in London and eat fish and chips all day and be friends with the Queen and her corgies.

PC or Mac?
PC, but only because I can't afford a Mac.

Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
Hahahaha. Funny question.

Far right: Tom Hiddleston
Center: Benedict Cumberbatch

Favorite celebrity?
Sorry. I absolutely cannot narrow this down to just one: Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch.

What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?
Ruth from Booktalk & More. She has amazing taste in books, movies, and TV. Have you seen her blog? It's perfection. I highly recommend it if you like to read about British TV and man candy. Seriously... her James Bond posts will make you drool. Consider this your tag, Ruth! I'm also tagging Kara from Flowers of Quiet Happiness. Her blog is another fun spot for books, thought posts and various interesting things! If you ever want to chat, she's always up for a bit of girl talk via Twitter! So rad!

Ladies, no worries if you don't have the time or aren't interested in completing a "20 Things" post -- you're still fab!

Who knew there were such fun people on the Internet? :)

  1. Fun, fun, fun post, Renee. I love these kinds of things despite being like you, a girl who doesn't like talking about herself. Sometimes theses questions are just too cool to pass us. :) Yay for 'Winter Soldier' and the shout-out to Ruth (love her blog and her writing and her all-around awesomeness!), she was actually one of the very few blogs I read before getting into blogging myself, so I still enjoy reading whatever she writes.

    Thank you for the shout-out, Renee. Right back atcha', girl. :)

  2. Renee ~ love your answers, especially the easy question/Mountain Dew one. ;) And I agree with you about Ruth...I would totally want to be BFFs with her, and I think she lives closer to me than any other blogger I know. :)

    Winter Soldier was awesome, and so is Benedict Cumberbatch!
