Sarah’s Questions:

What was the last book that made you cry?

Ok, first, let me remind you that I’m a crier. It’s kind of a joke when I watch movies with my family because I ALWAYS cry. I cried watching Finding Nemo, Frozen, and don’t even get me started on Toy Story 4 and Coco. I had to leave the room during a few scenes in Coco I was crying so hard. lol What can I say? I’m a sensitive woman.

The last book that made me weep copiously is:

What movie have you watched too many times to count?

There are so many!! lol I’m going to go with the Star Wars movies. All of them. Episodes 4-6 the most, but yeah. I love Star Wars.

Runners up include: Pride and Prejudice, Speed, This is the End, Dante’s Peak, Lake Placid, Die Hard, and The Matrix. Oh, and Frozen, and every other animated movie my kids watched on repeat. Yeah, I’m talking about you Cars, Wall-E, Frozen 2, Coco, Moana, and Lilo & Stich!

Favorite TV show you will never get tired of?

Schitt’s Creek. Such a funny show, and I adore the cast!

What’s something you collect besides books?

Plants. I love gardening and have a pretty decent collection of houseplants as well.

You get to pick a song to narrate a day in your life, what is it?

I guess it depends on the day! lol This is the first week of distance learning, and I have three kids in three different schools. So, the theme song for this week was The Wall by Pink Floyd. haha

What would you like to achieve on your blog in the next year?

Hmmm. That’s a really good question! I would like to expand my Author Spotlights/Interviews. I love connecting with authors and talking with them about their writing!

Cutest gif you’ve ever seen?

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination, Julie!! 💕 I totally get you about being a sensitive reader; I cry for basically every book I finish. And Disney movies are the worstttt. Coco had me on the floor 😭😭😭

    Thank you again for tagging me, and I loved reading this post! Hope you have a wonderful day! 😄

    1. I’m glad I’m not alone! lol I get so emotionally invested in stories/films/musicals/songs. Coco all but destroyed me!! Such a beautiful story!
      Hope your day is great too! 🙂

  2. I have never cried reading a book. However, I do cry at certain movies and stage shows. Les Mis is that musical movie I lost count of how many times- I now own a 2nd copy due to wearing the first one first one out- always an emotional wreck when it comes to that musical

  3. Loved reading your answers! My plant collection is also growing way too quickly haha, yesterday I went to the store for scotch tape and came back with a plant..


  4. Aah, thank you for the tag ❤️ That gif is ADORABLE! Pride and Prejudice is probably one of my most watched movies, too. It’s just so comforting and wonderful! Gotta love the Disney as well–I just watched Coco again for the millionth time last night and it still makes me so emotional haha great tag and answers!

    1. Oh, Coco! It destroyed me! lol It’s so beautiful and sad and poignant. Of course, I cry watching most Disney movies. lol We’ve been watching Frozen 2 a bunch lately, and I cry almost every time! 😉

  5. I totally get the whole crying thing cause I’m the same way! Although, I think Disney is out to get all the criers with some of the movies that you listed! I’ve cried over one too many Disney movies. Haha! (Also, a plant lover/collector on this side of the world.) Loved your post! Congrats on the nomination! xoxo
