Get to Know Us Blog Tag!

Hello fellow book-lovers!

It's suddenly dawned on us that you don't really know who "we" are. We've managed to find a blog tag which will help you do just that! 
Have a look down below and learn a bit more about us.

- Amy & Joe

Here we go…

1. Do you have a middle name?

A: Yes, it's Rosina! 
J: Yeah, it's Liam :D.

2. What was your favourite subject in school?

A: Well, probably English...I'm no good at Maths!
J: Oh god... erm... Possibly Science or Leisure and Tourism? but between those two, Leisure and Tourism.

3. What's your favourite drink?

A: I enjoy a can of Dr Pepper from time to time, but my favourite has to be a nice cup of tea (preferably PG Tips!)
J: I actually don't know how to answer this... probably Lilt? But I don't really have a favourite drink, so any of them?

What's your favourite song at the moment?

A: Ah, tough question. It's between 'A Sky Full of Stars' by Coldplay, 'Stay With Me' by Sam Smith and 'All of the Stars' by Ed Sheeran!

J: I have had this conversation a few times, and I've chosen the names 'Roxas' for my son... and 'Seraphina' as my Daughter. 

6. Do you participate in any sports?

A: When I lived in the US, I lifted weights, competed in track events, and played basketball, volleyball and softball! Now that I live in the UK, I'm not very 'sporty', but I would love to take up basketball again.
J: When I was little I played for the school football team, but as I got older, sport became more of an effort to participate in, therefore I do not apply myself to sports... I'm too lazy aswell haha!

A: My favourite book...hmmm...a particular series called 'The Breathing Series' by Rebecca Donovan comes to mind. (Damn, that's three books, not one!!)
