EMMA’S QUESTIONS:

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FLOWER?

I know this is the most basic answer, but I love roses and I always have. I even had a book about caring for roses when I younger which was weird because I didn’t have any roses, but I liked to look at the pictures. I also named my first guinea-pig Rosie and I’m pretty sure my love of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ started this obsession.

Anyway, roses are the superior flavour. Case closed.


WHEN WAS THE OLDEST BOOK YOU OWN PUBLISHED?

18079709

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll was published in 1865 and that is pretty hard to beat in terms of age so that’s my oldest! My grandfather of books, you could say.


WORST BOOK TO SCREEN ADAPTATION IN YOUR OPINION?

23014101

I think The Scorch Trails was much better in book form than the movie. I think they changed the second movie a lot whilst the other two adaptations they kept close to the books which was a shame because The Scorch Trials was actually my favourite book out of the series. I do love the gag reel for this movie though.


ARE YOU GOOD AT GARDENING / KEEPING HOUSEPLANTS ALIVE?

I’ve never really done it, so I don’t know but I’m going to go ahead and say I’m amazing at gardening anyway.


FAVOURITE SHADOWHUNTER RUNE?

I’ve never read the books but looking down at the guide I like…

Communication : Good for life, good for relationships.

Knowledge : Knowledge is power

Persuasion : Dangerous but very handy at times I imagine

Winged : I presuming this means I can fly so yesssssssssss.


DO YOU PLAN YOUR POSTS OR WRITE WHEN YOU GET INSPIRED?

I plan them to the extent of a title and occasionally I write some notes/headings. Then I will write the whole post when I have the time and go through it a couple of times before I post it.


WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU GOT GIVEN $10,000 BUT YOU COULD ONLY SPEND IT TODAY?

Lots of holidays, lots of books, a car, and give the rest to a good cause.


DO YOU HAVE PETS? CAN WE SEE THEM (CAUSE I LOVE A CUTE ANIMAL)?

Yes, I have a dog called Layla!! And of course, here she is… puppy pic this time!!

LEAST FAVOURITE TYPE OF CANDY?

Flying saucers!!

I don’t understand why people like them (sorry if you like them). It is literally paper. The sherbet is good but just buy a dib-dab instead.

Also, liquorice. NO.


PRETTIEST BOOK COVER / JACKET IN YOUR OPINION?

Look at all THESE!!!! Some of my absolute favourites! Please admire them and illustrated covers for the win. (sorry Emma, I couldn’t just pick one)

MIRI’S QUESTIONS:

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPREAD ON BREAD (JAM, BUTTER, ETC) IF YOU EAT BREAD?

I often have just butter on bread, which is really boring isn’t it? But it will either be fresh bread or toast so all I need is butter. I do love chocolate spread as well but it obviously isn’t the healthiest, so I try not to have it too much.


DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT READING NOOK! (STEALING FROM MY OWN ANSWERS)

A throne of cushions on a bed which are the right level of comfy so they can support you and you can squish into them. I would have lots of blankets as well. Comfort is my main priority. I would love to have fairy lights as well but I need good lighting so that won’t work. Maybe it would always smell of coffee because that is just the best.

DID YOU EXPERIENCE ANY FUNNY #OOPS MOMENTS AS A BLOGGER?

I have no idea what happened but my statistics post from January has some sort of malfunction where it constantly uploaded every minute but you still couldn’t see it on my blog website. It sent like 40 tweets out and I had to whack out this old laptop to delete the post and reupload it. I’m still confused.

Also, the amount of times I have almost sent comments where I’ve made the sentence negative when it should be positive is really bad. For example, “you really don’t deserve it” when I’ve meant “you really do deserve it”. It just keeps me up at night thinking how I could have sent the wrong comment. How bad would that be?!!?


WHICH BOOK REVIEW YOU WROTE IS YOUR FAVORITE?

Ohh… I would say either The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo because I liked the way I set it out and it was the first review that I had ever wrote that I felt really proud of.

32620332. sy475

Or Darius The Great Is Not Okay because I felt like I captured why I loved in my review quite well and it was so fun to write.

37506437

I loved both these books so that probably effects it as well.


HOW HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED OVER TIME?

Yes definitely. The design and how I format my posts has changed and I personally feel like it has massively improved. The posts are much easier to read now that I make sentences bold and include headings.

I also think the content has changed as I prefer discussions and love talking about my writing. I used to do more reviews and tags (even though I have quite a few tags at the minute) but now I like to do posts I feel really excited about. Lately I’ve been trying to improve my blogging voice too and actually edit my posts. (I full on stopped doing that at one point, I’m so bad. I’m so sorry).


IF YOU COULD EAT OR DRINK ONE FICTIONAL TREAT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Hmm… the sweets from The Starless Sea which tell a story as you eat them. Erin Morgenstern is actually great at having creative foods in her books.

WHAT’S YOUR OPINION ON CLIFFHANGERS?

YESSSSSSS. I love them. They enhance reading and bring a really fun energy to reading. I LOVE THE DRAMA. People will be screaming about them until the next book and the good ones are always memorable. They are effective and I love them… A LOT.

I am not ashamed to admit that I’m the person holding the camera when it comes to cliff-hangers!

IF YOU COULD READ ONE BOOK NOW THAT’S YET TO BE PUBLISHED, WHAT BOOK WOULD IT BE?

Ohh there is quite a few but I am going to go with A Neon Darkness’ by Lauren Shippen because I need Damien’s story. (These books are based off a podcast and he was the antagonist but one of the best written ones so I’m excited to see him before and he has a super interesting and complex power so gimme it now!!)

The Bright Sessions by Lauren Shippen on Apple Podcasts


HOW DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR BLOG NAME?

Well the full story is here but basically I loved the word ‘Ink’, I think it is aesthetic and resembles my interests of writing and books (even though I wasn’t a book blogger initially) and I was playing around with different ideas. I liked the idea of ‘me’ and in my head it stood for ‘Mere Existence’ which I found a comforting thought. I ended up with ‘Me and Ink’ as I thought it sounded quite good. I had the feeling, you know.


FINALLY, WHAT MADE YOU START YOUR AWESOME BOOK BLOG?

I would LOVE to go back in time and ask past me because I didn’t follow any blogs and I only knew of blogs because of ‘Zoella’ as I was a 2014 YouTuber addict at one point. So, I’m not sure. I think I loved the idea of writing and it going somewhere beyond me. I loved the idea of creating and interacting. It sounded like fun and something I would genuinely enjoy.

Then I found the book blogging community and haven’t looked back.

  1. Do you believe in fate?
  2. Do you think you pressure yourself in reading lots of pages (e.g. I must read 50 pages today or else)?
  3. What animal would you love to experience in the wild? (safety is guaranteed so it can be anything)
  4. Describe one of your favourite books in (only) 3 words?
  5. What is one thing (anything, real or not real) that you wished you owned?
  6.  If you could steal a house/building from any fictional place/world so you could live in/visit it, what would it be?
  7. What YA character would you love to read about when they are in their 30’s? What are they doing? (so, it could involve them with kids, marriage, jobs, travel etc.)
  8. Which book character would you want to open a business with? (Bonus: what’s the business?)
  9. What book do you wish had an illustrated copy? (like Harry Potter)
  10. If you could only listen to 5 albums for the rest of your life, what would they be? (Yes, I dare ask this)

I nominate these awesome bloggers…. Lais @ The Bookish Skies, Olivia @ Purely Olivia, Caitlin @ Caitlin Althea, and Ruby @ Ruby Rae Reads.

Obviously, this is entirely optional and there is no pressure whatsoever. But this is a great opportunity to say I love your blogs and I would love to see your answers if you choose to do this.

    1. Yes pretty book covers are my weakness 😂

      I know I’m done it so many times, it is so bad. And then sometimes when I’m trying to get to sleep I think what if I made a negative comment and it just deeply concerns me 🙈 aww.. Well at least you have never done it and I *hopefully* don’t think I have either 😂

  2. I also can’t WAIT for Damien’s story in A Neon Darkness!! It can’t come soon enough!
    And your dog is so cute my heart is melting 😍
    Hmm worst film adaptation…I have to go with Ella Enchanted, since I’m rereading the book right now, and the book is one of my absolute favorites while the movie is…not at all. I never read The Scorch Trials, but that’s so frustrating that it’s the worst adaptation in the series, since it’s your favorite book!

    1. I know, I’m so excited to get to know more about him. He was like a perfect example of a morally grey character and his power was so interesting. I really want the cover to be revealed soon!! 🤞🏼

      Aww.. She melts my heart too!! 😍😍

      Ooh I’ve never watched or read Ella Enchanted but I’ve seen the trailer. It is a shame you loved the book and the movie let you down. It is a sad feeling!
      I know, it was just very different plot wise and I thought the book was so much stronger !!

  3. OMG, Layla is so cute!!!
    And you love cliffhangers? oh, you are one of a kind. I just can’t stand them, unless I have the next book with me, then I’m okay with freaking out for 5 minutes before I get the answer.

    1. Yay, I think Layla is adorable as well (of course) She is currently in bed next to me (like she is in her bed next to me on a chair, not in bed with me 😂🙈)
      Yes I do love cliff hangers, I understand why people find them frustrating but I kind of love that feeling!! But to be fair I have often had the next book with me as I like to binge series so maybe that is why I like them!! 😂😂

  4. ahh, Sophie, you ARE awesome!! trust me when i say that 😉 don’t doubt yourself, you totally deserve this tag because you’re one of the most ‘awesome’ bloggers I know!! 🥰

    ASFTGJHJKLLGK YOUR DOG IS SO CUTE!!! oh my gosh i can’t deal with the adorableness 😍😍😍 and lol, i agree with you on cliffhangers! they totally make me want to keep reading, but if an author ends a book with a cliffhanger and the next installment won’t come out for a long time… i do feel like screaming. XD

    the story behind your blog name is so sweet, i agree that the word ‘ink’ has such an aesthetic and comforting connotation! and aww *sends hugs back* the book blogging community is definitely the best. 😉

    i loved reading this post!! hope you’re doing well ❤ xx

      Ahh…. thank you so much!! She was such a cute puppy and I remember on the first day we got her, she fell asleep in my lap and she could actually fit in 10 year old me’s lap!!

      Yay I’m glad you agree!! I love cliff hangers and they definitely make me need the next books. True if it is a really long wait, it can feel excruciating!! 😂

      Aw.. thank you. I always liked the work ink, you know when you just have words you like the sound of!! I’m glad it gives you a comforting connotation as well 😊 ahh.. thank you, I do love the book community!! 💕

  5. congrats on the getting the ‘awesome blogger award’ it absolutely means you’re awesome!! definitely agree with you on the roses, they might be the obvious choice but theyre so pretty and 🥺 how could anyone NOT love them. i refuse to watch the maze runner movies, i really liked the books (when i read them, i have no idea what i would think now) and i heard the movies are kind of awful, so imma just steer clear of that lol

    BUY 👏 THOSE 👏 BOOKS 👏 hahahah im sorry im laughing at your negative comment mishap, it happens to us all, but it is funny to share

    THE CLIFFHANGER GIF jkljalkdjala i do love reading a good cliffhanger though, i find they actually help me remember the ending of a book opposed to a book that has a really clean, happy ending. this was so much fun to read!!

    1. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! 💕 haha well if it is official I’m certainly going to bring my awesomeness up to win arguments 😉😂
      Yes these are facts– roses are beautiful and they are the obvious choice for a reason 😂

      Yeah it has been a while since I read The Maze Runner books and I won’t be passing any pop quizzes on them any time soon 😂 but I did like the books at the time and the plot was so different for the second movie I think and it just wasn’t the same. I do really like the cast of the movie so at least that came out of the films!! 😂

      Yes!!
      I know, I actually live in fear of sending them but it does always make me laugh when I’m reading them back — it is definitely an oops moment 😂 !!

      Haha I saw it and it was a beautiful moment!! I had to include it 😂🙈 yes Cliffhangers definitely help me remember those endings, I mean those scars run deep !! 😂

      Thank you so much May!! 💕💕

  6. I am exactly there with you in butter on toast/bread is a great thing – why change it? It’s amazing – I don’t really understand layering spreads as well, like if I was gonna have jam, I’d just have jam, why would you have spread & jam?! Ok, that was a slight tangent but on the flip side to that I wasn’t gonna read the starless sea but if it’s got amazing treats in it then yes please, sign me up 🙂

  7. um, it DOES mean you’re officially awesome!! not that you totally weren’t before 😉 also, you must read the shadowhunter books!! the first series- the mortal instruments is sorta mediocre, but “the dark artifices” was hands-down one of the best series i’ve eVeR read!! the characters are so lovable, the romance is beautiful, and the fantasy world is rich with world-building (bonus points for including the fae)! also, layla’s photo made me smile soooo hard- she’s a big furball of cuteness!! 🥰 also, “a throne of cushions” is officially the best phrase EVER. i totally get you abt. the fairy lights– i have them, and whenever i want to read at night, i have to squint at the words to make them out– it’s def not worth it 😂 hands down, the worst book-to-movie adaptation is percy jackson *shudders* and then eragon! but fans are begging for a percy jackson remake, so hopefully that happens!

      Ahh.. I do own The Infernal Devices so I have been meaning to try them but clearly I need to get to The Dark Artificies as well, I mean I need some of the ‘best ever’ in my life !!! I mean lovable characters (yes), romance (yessss) and rich worldbuilding (yessssssss), you have definitely sold It!!

      Aww.. that makes me so happy!! She is adorable and cute !!! 😍😍

      Haha a throne of cushion is the dream!! Haha yes I really need good lighting even if it is less aesthetic 😂 I’m glad you can relate !!

      Oh yes I heard the hate for the Percy Jackson movie, I’ve seen it and I actually liked it but I have never read the book (but that is going to change soon) so I imagine my eyes will be opened and it has been so long since I saw the movie anyway! Oh yes Eragon, another I haven’t read or seen the movie. I heard about the rumours of a remake and that does sound very exciting so I hope it works out well and everyone gets the adaptation they deserve!! 😊

    1. Of course, I love your blog and you are definitely awesome!! Aw.. thank you, I always struggle coming up with questions so that’s great to hear!!
      I know dogs are literally perfection and I honestly can’t handle it. I always look at Layla and will tell my mum what she is doing because I find it too cute and my mum literally couldn’t care less haha!!
      Aw.. well you do really well to edit them all, editing is the bit I hate the most and while it massively improves the posts sometime my lack of motivation wins. I don’t like it when I do it but some part of me is so lazy but then the other part wants to be a perfection so it honestly depends on the day, haha!!
      Haha I know, I only check for spelling mistakes on comments briefly but I imagine I repeat myself a lot, like we are looking at saying the same thing three times here!! haha!! At least we do it together!!

  10. Thank you so much for nominating me, Sophie!! Congrats on this award, you deserve it so incredibly much and I hope you know you are such an awesome blogger.💖
    I love that roses are your favorite and that your love for them stemmed from Beauty and the Beast! I also like them because of that, Belle is kind of my Disney princess role model. XD
    Aww, Layla is absolutely adorable!! Okay, I’m in love.🥺
    I love your rainbow aesthetic of book covers! My eyes thank you for providing that, haha. Illustrated covers are my favorite too, I definitely will always prefer them!
    I definitely feel you about cliffhangers- of course they make me just as annoyed in the moment as they probably do for everyone else, but they add such a layer to the story and usually end up being quite worth the wait.
    Lovely post, and thank you again for the nomination!

  11. Yes you’re officially awesome x10000000000000 (let’s just pretend that goes on a lot longer as I don’t want to fill the whole comment up with 0s :L)
    Anyway I love roses too, they’re so pretty and probably my favourite as well. I love getting a mixture of two colours. I do love lilies as well but they’re dangerous to cats so I avoid them and tulips look pretty too but they tend to droop really quickly!!
    The oldest book I own is either Peter Pan or Dracula (I’m not sure which is oldest without looking, Dracula I think?) ((I shall check later and probably discover I’m wrong :L)) And I liked the Scorch Trials but then I haven’t read the books yet. I guess I should try to get them read this year too.
    ‘I’ve never really done it, so I don’t know but I’m going to go ahead and say I’m amazing at gardening anyway.’That made me laugh!!! Of course you’re awesome at it anyway!!
    OMG your puppy is so, so adorable!! And she reminds me of Alfie when he was a puppy a bit!!
    I adore beautiful covers although they make me want the books in hardback which is kind of annoying as they cost more and take up room and I can’t actually own every gorgeous book out there :L my favourites of what you included are Sorcery Of Thorns & Crimes Of Grindlewald (I adore the colours of that one!!)
    Oh I seriously worry about doing that too – sending a negative instead of a positive thanks to typos. I’m pretty sure everyone would know you meant it minus the ‘not’ in those cases though.
    Those sweets sound awesome (and not just because they’re sweets). They sound like something out of Harry Potter. Ill definitely have to get The Starless Sea read at some point this year.

    Ooh I hope you end up loving A Neon Darkness. It sounds like it’s about an interesting character and I’m also intrigued by the powers now. I’ll have to check the series and podcast out sometime.
    I loved reading this post!!

    And I love your questions!! I so want to see what people’s answers to them are as they’re such a fascinating mix and should lead to some really interesting posts 🙂

      Yay I’m glad you love roses so much too !! They are so pretty and the different colours are cool!! Lilies and Tulips are really beautiful too but they do have the downsides like you said.
      Yes those are both older books but I’m not sure which is the oldest either but definitely classics ! I can definitely watch the movie as it is enjoyable but I just wish they hadn’t changed some things I remembered !! oohh.. hope you like them if you do.
      haha I’m glad it made you laugh !! I was practising a bit of self confidence there 😉 thank you so much !!!
      yessss she looks so cute !! I can’t believe how much her face changed !! That is so cool that she reminds you of puppy Alfie!! I love that !!
      I’m the same !! I am always tempted for the hardback of beautiful covers but they are more expensive sadly !! Yes Sorcery of Thorns and Crimes of Grindelwald are stunning !! I really love the use of green and teal on covers !!
      I know and I almost do it so many times !! It is so bad !! Yeah I feel like most would pick up on the mistake and realise what I truly meant, at least I hope so !!
      haha they do sound like something out of HP!! Yes I loved The Starless Sea, I would love to hear what you think !! 🙂
      Thank you so much !! I’m excited to get to it and I’ve already heard good things !! It is definitely an intriguing power ! Ohh I do recommend both !! 🙂
      Thank you soooo much !! ❤

      1. Aww thank you ❤️
        Yes they’re stunning. I also like the multicoloured ones that you sometimes get in gardens. Ooh and sunflowers, I forgot about them until I saw them mentioned in the Hufflepuff post. Those always look lovely in the summer.
        According to Google it’s Dracula so I guessed right. Although there’s only 7 years between them. Yes it is frustrating when they do that!! Thank you 😊
        Ah that’s something I should definitely do 😂
        Aww yes it’s amazing how much they change!! With Alfie it was his tail. It went from tiny to big and fluffy (and if anyone touched it, even like one hair by accident, he was not impressed!!). It’s probably because they’re both collies 😂
        Yes that’s so true, sometimes by quite a bit as well. Especially if you can only find them at RRP (I think that’s the right name)
        They look so, so good. I almost brought Crimes Of Grindelwald for that cover but I was good and resisted as I’m still not convinced by its play format.
        We both need to be more careful! (I say, knowing I’ll do the same as usual and reread this after pressing send 😂)
        I’ll let you know once I’ve read it 😊 I’m kind of tempted to wait until the libraries reopen then order it through them as I want to read it in print for some reason (preferably the sprayed edge version they sent when I failed to read it before).
        Yay well fingers crossed you’ll love it!!

        Yes it is fun trying to think them up and then finding out what people will answer with 😊

          Yes it is and I know (I think it is right too 😂)
          😍 I got it as a gift so it saved me the decision!! The play format is quite strange 😂

          1. I should have guessed 😅 they used to get them every summer where I walk the dog but they don’t seem to have planted them this year 😔
            Yeah definitely close.
            He was so, so protective of his tail!!
            Yeah I think I remember you saying. I do want to read them all eventually though. Even if I am sceptical of a play being fun to read 😂
            I do hope to read it this year though ☺️ and yes so stunning 😍

            1. That so cool as you don’t see them a lot. It is a shame they weren’t there this year though. I used to have loads in the garden and they grew so big !! It was awesome !!
              My aunt’s cat used to be the same about his tail but I was like 5 and never listened so I got scratched a lot !! That was definitely my fault !!
              haha just for the experience !! 🙂
              Yay !! ❤

              1. Yeah it is a shame. I loved seeing them each year. And that must have been wonderful, they do end up massive sometimes!! It’s hard to believe a flower can get so tall.

                Aww 😔 I feel so sorry for five year old you. But yeah animals can be very protective of their tails it seems!!
