My Best Post:

I haven’t been blogging for long but my favourite post has definitely been the Pottermore Sorting Tag as I’m obsessed with Harry Potter. I’m not sure if it’s objectively my best but I loved writing about my house, Patronus, etc so I’m choosing that.


Sam’s Questions:

1. What is your favourite candle (or, if you can’t choose, the one you’ve burned most recently; or if you don’t like candles, your favourite scent in general)?
 
My obsession with bookish candles is fairly recent but now I’m addicted. The ‘Book Hangover’ candle from Good Book Hunting is one of my favourites as it’s scented with bergamot, but I also adore Elle’s ‘The Muse’ candle as I love anything related to Strange the Dreamer. 
 
[Disclaimer: I’m a rep for Elle’s company – you can use the code SCORPIOBOOKDREAMS15 to save 15% on your order].
 
I have six starter tins coming from Bookworm Candles & Crafts soon so I can’t wait to smell those and see what the quality is like. I’ve also tried a Meraki Candles monthly box and loved the blueberry scent of Lara’s Love Letters.
 
2. Do you have a pet and are they named after a character? If yes, why; if no, what literary name would you give a pet?
 
I have a six-year-old, fox-red Labrador who I named after Roux from Joanne Harris’s Chocolat. The obvious reason was that it means red-haired so was perfect for a fox-red Labrador but it’s also one of my Mum’s favourite films and one of my favourite books so it seemed like a great choice.
 
 
3. If you had to be from any planet, real or imaginary, which planet and why?
 
I’m going to go with Bitch Planet for this one as I’m pretty sure I’d be labelled as ‘non-compliant’ and exiled for being a feminist. 
 
4. What’s your favourite season of the year and why? Bonus points: what things remind you of that season?
 
Winter is my favourite season as I love the darker days and feeling cosy reading a book by a roaring fire. Plus, Christmas is the best! Blankets, candles, fires, and hot chocolate all remind me of Winter. 
 
5. If you could adapt any one book or series perfectly (regardless of whether it’s been adapted before) which would you choose?
 
I would do a TV series of Harry Potter so the characters and plot could be better developed than they were in the films. Imagine a 10 hour series for each book?!

    Thank you for the award! I Christmas is my favorite time of year also. I love candles, but am afraid to use them around the house with the cats and my daughter. I can’t say I have a favorite scent. I haven’t tried the book-related ones. I love the name Roux. 🙂 I would love to see a Harry Potter television show.
    1. What is your biggest bookworm confession? I don’t like to have books with faces on the front cover staring up at me, and so if I set the book down, I make sure it’s facing down. Weird, I know. LOL
    2. What series do you re-read the most? I am not really a re-reader and have only re-read a handful of books. I suppose then I would have to say the Princess in Black chapter books that I read with my daughter–but only because she makes me read them over and over. Haha.
    3. What fictional place would you most like to visit? I would most love to visit Narnia, I think.
    4. What’s your favourite piece of bookish merchandise? I have a pair of earrings and necklace with quotes from Pride and Prejudice.
    5. Which five authors (living or dead) would you invite to a dinner party? Hmm. This is always a hard one. Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Julia Alvarez, Lisa See, and Anne Bishop.
