The Book Cookies

My name is Taylor and I'm an avid reader, as well as an aspiring author! I love cookies (obviously) and fantasy is my favorite genre (I usually review YA novels). Book reviews usually take 1-7 days to write, depending on the book.

Late to the Party...

Reblogged from BrokenTune :

I know, I know. Sorry, but this looked fun and I really enjoyed getting to know a little more about everyone else who took part in this.


Thanks to Hunger For Knowledge - I don't know if this where it started but it's where I saw it first, I think.


1. Are you named after anyone?


Sort of. My older brother was named after a 16th century revolutionary that my mum read about when she was expecting. When I came along, my parents thought it would be cute to give me the female version of the same name. It's not the only instance where our appreciation of what constitutes cute differs. I maintain it was sheer laziness - they could call both offspring in one go.

2. When was the last time you cried?


Last week? Can't remember what about tho - probably a tv advert.  

3. Do you have kids? 



4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?


Yes. Absolutely. Like many others on here (it seems), I'm an introvert but I do like going on adventures and hanging out with my friends - just not large groups of strangers. 

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?


It's my happy place. Really, I try to curb in public but the world conspires to test my patience. 

6. Will you ever bungee-jump?

Sure, but only after I master how to use anti-gravity.

7. What’s your favourite cereal?


The only cereal I enjoy is porridge. Best with fruit or honey.


8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?

Their smile. 

9. What is your eye colour?


10. Scary movie or happy endings?

I don't do scary.

11. Favourite smells?

The sea. Fresh cut grass. The forest after it's been raining.

12. Summer or winter? 


Spring and autumn. Living in Scotland they all blend into one, tho. Or they all appear happen in the same day. 

13. Computer or television?


Computer and book. I had not even switched the tv on for weeks before the French Open started.

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?


Singapore but I'm trying to change that.

15. Do you have any special talents?


Getting lost. It is inevitable.

16. Where were you born?



17. What are your hobbies?


Reading, going on adventures, tennis, music. 

18. Do you have any pets?


No. I'm not at home much and it would not be fair on the pet. I'd love a dog at some point again, tho.

19. Favorite movie?


No. That's like asking what is your favourite book. It depends on the circumstances and mood. 

20. Do you have any siblings?


One brother.

21. What do you want to be when you grow up?


Indiana Jones.
