Sunflowers Bring Questions

Amber showered me with this lovely award a few weeks ago. Now I'm finally getting around to joining in! Except I'm going to change it up. I'm only going to answer the 11 questions. My time is slightly pressed today :( so I'm refraining from all the 11 facts about me and nominating 11 other blogs and all that jazz. Hope y'all don't mind!

Anyway, here goes nothing. Enjoy! (And if you'd like to join in, feel free!)

What's one book you already know will go on your list of favorites for 2014?

Cruel Beauty!!! (What? Did you not guess that already? I've only mentioned it a time or five on here. ;)

What's one book you're looking forward to reading this summer?

The Seahorse Legacy (Which I just won thanks to Amber! And the author too. How awesome is that?!)

What's your favorite type of blog post to read?

Hmmm. As much as I love book reviews, I probably enjoy the ones where the writer is posting about something they love, some new awesome book they fell in love with, or something they're passionate about, the most.

What's your favorite type of blog post to write/put together?

Definitely the ones where I'm writing my thoughts on something. With a picture attached. But I just really enjoy getting the chance to write out my thoughts. And to think that other people will read them....maybe even enjoy them? Is pretty awesome indeed. :)

Hardcover or paperback?

Paperback (SO much easier to hold.)

For paperbacks, soft cover (matte) or glossy?

I'll go with the soft (matte) covers, they just feel so nice when I'm holding them. :)

Which do you enjoy most: Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, or Goodreads?

Oh my. Decisions, decisions. Hmmmm. They're all so fun in their own ways! But I'd say it comes down to a duel between Twitter and Pinterest. They're the two I'm on the most. Which one wins? *shrugs* ;)

Which national park or country would you most like to visit?

I've been wanting to visit Italy for years. Hopefully someday!

What's your favorite genre of music?

It really just depends on the song. It has to inspire and encourage me. And be uplifting! I'm a fan of music in general actually.

Name one movie or TV show that surprised you recently.

Not sure about surprising me, but I've fallen in love with When Calls the Heart from the Hallmark Channel. SO fun! :)

What's your favorite flower?

Gerber daisies! They're just so cheerful. And friendly! :)


  1. I enjoyed reading your answers, Kara. Your comment about friendly daisies reminds me of "You've Got Mail"- always a favorite :)

    1. That's exactly what went through my head when I was typing that line, Courtney! I wondered if anyone would catch it. :D It's one of my favorite movies. And I really do think their a very friendly flower.

  2. Love your responses, Kara! So glad you decided to post them. :)

    I really enjoyed Cruel Beauty, as well - so intense and unique and romantic (in a different sort of way, LOL)!

    I hope you enjoy The Seahorse Legacy! I though it was an awesome read, and I can't wait for The Sunken Realm. :D

    Love your comments about blog posts. I think reading this encouraged me to do the sort of post I just wrote up (and I sent you another S/O)! It's fun to see what really gets people excited, for sure.

    I love soft covers, Twitter, and Pinterest, too! And I SO need to see the full When Calls the Heart series sometime. I have the Amazon Instant Video versions ($1.99/episode!) on my Pinterest wish list.

    And aren't daisies the friendliest flowers? ;)


    1. Thanks Amber!

      It's so fun to know you really liked Cruel Beauty as well! :) I'm pretty positive that I'll enjoy Serena's next book. She hasn't disappointed me yet!

      I loved your post. (And the s/o! ;) When you're enthusiastic about a subject you're writing about, whatever it is, your writing will show that. And makes for a fun read! :)

      When Calls the Heart is wonderful. I really think you'll enjoy it once you get the chance to watch.

      Thanks for tagging me for such a fun post! Your comments always make me smile. :)

  3. I saw the book ' Cruel Beauty' two days ago in a bookshop. Will check out your thoughts on it. :-) Amen also to liking to share your thoughts on your blog. I know I always enjoy reading them. Love your friendliness.

    1. Thanks Ganise! I love your friendliness and enthusiasm for books. And when your name pops up in my comments list, it always gives me a smile. :)

      You should definitely try Cruel Beauty! It's amazing!

  4. LOVE this post, of course, Kara. Well done. It was so fun/sweet of Amber to tag us in this and I had fun with my to.

    Yay for Cruel Beauty (that's going to by one of my first reads after this TBR) and for When Calls the Heart. Glad you liked it so well; believe it or not, I liked Signed, Sealed, Delivered even better! :)

    1. It was very sweet of Amber. This was a fun post to write! :)

      I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on Cruel Beauty! I know I've only said that 10 or so times. But I want more people to love it as much as I! ;)

      I haven't watched the series for Signed, Sealed, Delivered yet, but now I want to even more. A "Rissi recommendation" always means good things! :D


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
