  • Answer the questions given by the nominator.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and link them.
  • Notify all the bloggers you nominate.
  • Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer.

1. What¬†is your absolute favourite film of all time? You can’t ask a film student this question – it’s too cruel! I adore¬†(500) Days of Summer¬†because it’s the sort of film you can watch over and over and it means something different every time depending on what mood you’re in. I’m also a sucker for an old fashioned, sweeping romance like¬†Roman Holiday¬†or¬†Gone With the Wind.

2. What is your second least favourite film and why?¬†I can’t stand¬†Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I’m not a big Spielberg fan generally (I know, alert the media), but¬†Close Encounters¬†is bad even by his standards: it’s too long, the main character is a jerk and I remember getting to the end and wondering why I even bothered watching it in the first place.

3. What is your guilty pleasure?¬†A really sappy Rom Com, when I’m in the right mood.¬†Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Holiday, Sleepless in Seattle…I know they’re not “great” movies per se, but I really enjoy them and what’s wrong with that?

4. What one word would be the best one to describe your personality? Dramatic, probably.

5. Coffee, beer, or wine?¬†I’d rather have a milkshake.

6. Pick your favourite TV show, and then choose 3 characters from that show to Kiss/Kill/Marry.¬†The Vampire Diaries.¬†Marry¬†Klaus because I can’t resist his boyish, psycho charm. Kiss¬†Damon Salvatore because he is ridiculously hot. Kill Stefan because I can’t stand any more of his sulking.

7. Favourite fast food restaurant? Krispy Kreme Donuts.

8. If you had to spend time with ONLY one person for the rest of your life, who would it be? My mum.

9. Your GoT house. (If you don‚Äôt watch GoT, you may choose Harry Potter house, LOTR group, Divergent faction, Hunger Games district, etc.)¬†Ok, so if I was in¬†Game of Thrones¬†I would be half Tyrell and half Targarean, so I could look super gorgeous, until you annoyed me and then I’d burn you to death with my dragon. In¬†Hunger Games, I’m definitely District 4. I have an obsession with the sea and I love Finnick.

10. What is next location on your travel list? Vienna.

11. What is your favourite blog post that you have written?¬†I haven’t written that many yet, but I did like¬†reviewing¬†Testament of Youth because it was such a powerful and moving film.

I nominate:
