11 Random facts:
  • I have been blogging for less than a year
  • My favorite TV show of all time is Gossip Girl (blair and chuck 4 forever!)
  • Favorite food is MACROONS! (if you do not know what this is they are a delicious french dessert and are SO amazing) 
  • Favorite color is pink! 
  • Can literally roam pintrest for hours at a time (I have an obsession I know)
  • Can sew and have even designed and created my own homecoming dress
  • That being said I also love to fashion design and even tried my hand at fashion blogging before becoming obsessed with reading and book blogging!
  • I have two siblings
  • I have never traveled outside of the United States
  • I like cats more than dogs
  • I hoard fashion magazines like no bodies business 

  1. What is the story behind your blog name?
The name Bubbly Books was actually quite random for me, I think I came across something similar when I was scrolling through blog ideas on pinterest and it just really stuck with me! (Plus you know I thought it sounded cute)

2. Do you have a favorite (favorites?) book series and what is it?

I have a top three for my favorite series and they go in the following order:
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas ( the second one A Court of Mist and Fury is my all time fav ;) 
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
- and finally a recent favorite of mine (I literally love it SO much) A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Scwab

  All of these series have quite literally blown me away with how amazing they are. First off the writing in all of them is flat out INCREDIBLE and the world building is amazing. It's like I just completely melt into their worlds and forget my surroundings, its totally immersive and fantastic! The characters in all the books will make you FEEL I'm talking tears, hair tearing out frustration, and many other emotions! Love the bantering between the crew in Six of Crows and the sequel is even better if that even possible? Rhys and Feyre are my absolute loves in A Court of Mist and Fury and if you haven't read that series... READ IT! (Its just something you have to do) A Darker Shade of Magic is just so fabulous because of how crazy original it is and also the characters are flat out mysterious and fiercely loving (I cannot get enough!)

3. What motivated you to start your blog?

 I started my blog rather recently because I just started reading like crazy and I realized I had all these opinions about the books I was reading and I just needed to get them all out of my head and on paper (or in this case on a blog) Also the blogging community has been SO wonderful and I love sharing my opinions about books and hearing about what other wonderful books are out there from other fellow bloggers!

4. You can pick ONE fictional best friend. Who do you choose? (I’m so mean, I don’t even know how I would answer this question)

 Oh my gosh this is a hard one! I don't even think I know the answer to this! I guess if I had to pick I'd go with Thorn from the Cinder series because he's so flippant and hilarious and I just love him and Cress SO much!

5. If you could be a superhero, what would you want your power to be?

Reading peoples minds but only if I could turn it on and off and use it when I wanted too. I just think it would be so interesting to hear what people were thinking and it would take the guess work out of a lot of things. 

6. What’s the craziest thing you’ve done lately?

I haven't really done a lot of crazy things lately maybe spending literally more than my own weight on Christmas gifts because I'm extra and extravagant when it comes to gift giving! 

7. What Hogwarts House are you?

Um this may come as a shock to the book blogging community but I actually don't know what Hogwarts House I am? (I know I'm that person) 

8. Tell me who your fictional crushes/spouses are! Books, movie, TV shows—it’s a free for all!!

Oooh fictional crushes! On tv shows and in books?!?! This could take awhile- we probably need a list for this:

- LOVE Chuck and Blaire from Gossip Girl (they are my first TV show loves!)
- Nathan and Haley from One Tree Hill (if you have not seen that show you need to!)
- Damon and Elena from Vampire diaries (because Vampires thats all I need to say)
- Thorn and Cress from the Cinder series
- Feyre and Rhys from ACOMAF
- Rose and Dimitri from A Vampire Academy
And I'm sure theres a ton more I just can't remember them all right now!

9. What was the last TV show you binge-watched (BESIDES Stranger Things)??

I'm currently binge watching Son's of Anarcy and I LOVE IT! I love the motorcycles, the bad boys, all the gangs and the fights. It's all so entertaining and I just cannot get enough! Plus I love Tara and Jax the best! Love Opi and I love all the betrayal and the unpredictableness of it all! It is a little on the dark side but thats what makes it good right? 

10. Who’s your favorite author or authors?

-Sarah J. Maas
-Leigh Bardugo
-Marissa Meyers
-V.E. Schwab

11. What’s your book blog resolution for the new year?

My book resolution is to expand the amount of genres I read, normally I just stick to a bunch of fantasy and paranormal romance types of genres but I'm really looking to branch out this year! GoodReads is also really helpful because it opens my eyes to a bunch of books I wouldn't have ever found on my own. Also to just read more books this year and actually post more posts! (I'm trying to get more creative with my posts as well so if you guys have any ideas that would be awesome!)
