500 Followers Q&A + GIVEAWAY!

Hello readers! Today is like HISTORY for Between the Pages, because we just reached 500 followers! And, the timing was just right, since it’s just about our one year blog-a-versary! Someone pull a party popper over my laptop please.

Giveaway Información!

SO, I decided to do my first giveaway for this momentous event, because I owe my readers big time for always being there to fangirl about books to.

**the link for the third entry is BROKEN, please press HERE for the correct link!!**

I will be announcing the winner next Saturday, and will e-mail them a $20 e-giftcard for B&N! You must have a WordPress blog to enter, so I can notify the winner via blog commenting, just to ensure the giftcard doesn’t get lost in some random inbox…

Because Barnes & Noble ships internationally, any blogger can enter! :))


Twin Bookmarks: If you we’re trapped on an Island 🏝 forever which book 🕮 would you take and why?

Hmmm I would say Lady Midnight. OR maybe The Book Thief, but that’s kinda a sad one. First of all, Lady Midnight is amazingly thick, and the characters would be the closest things to friends, because of their personalities.

The Writing Recipes: Do you keep a journal/diary? Why/why not?

No, because I don’t have the time or effort to write in one every day, but I do keep a journal for travel, because it’s really interesting to read your experiences in writing more vivid than your memory. I got this cute notebook for Christmas, and was like, “I’m NOT going to ruin this. I’ll use it as a journal, and not fail by suddenly not writing in it.” An oath was made that day.

Care Free Manatee: Do you ever think you will write a book? What genre would it be in?

Maybe. I mean, I would love to write a book, but I can only imagine how hard it must be to come up with an idea. I would definitely write a Young Adult book. (Unrelevant to my prior statements:) Something I have noticed is that your writing as an author merely has to be decent to write a YA novel, because it’s obviously written mainly for young adults who can’t comprehend writing like adults can. This means that if you have a great idea for your story, writing it is much easier for a YA genre.

Whimsically Meghan: Do you see yourself blogging for the years to come?

YES. I hope that I never have to give blogging up for school. It would make me so sad!

Penelope Crumb: Who was your first follower?

Ooh I know this but I forget the website URL. *going through all of my followers to the very end…* Okayyy FINALLY. My first ever follower was Senna @sameraketto!

Gracie Chick: Describe yourself in five words.

Oh my. This seems to be the favorite question at interviews, from my experience. Well, here’s a very rough answer: book addict, (yet) athletic, determined, and friendly. Yeah, I’m bad at this. But you know what? At least I’m sure I’m friendly. If you disagree…please just…UNFOLLOW. (IT PAINS ME TO SAY THAT) But please kindly wait to unfollow until I reach 501. Then you are free to go. 😢

Jeannette: If you won $5,000, what would you spend it on?

Um. BOOKS. Approximately 277 hardcovers to be precise. *please excuse my sass*

The Geck Online: How long have you been blogging for?

One full year minus 22 days! My blog has just changed so much, and it has changed into an entirely different person. The experience has been incredible. *sobs dramatically*

Pictured on the left is my one year blog-a-versary gift to myself! I have a nice empty piece of wall space where I plan to hang it up. (just want to clarify that I am joking here, since it’s still in my Amazon shopping cart.) Okay I’m actually kidding about everything guys, I don’t want you to think I’m that extra.

Lively Pages: A fantasy book that made you cry?

THE DARK ARTIFICES are pure amazingness and there’s nothing on this earth like it. Seriously read it, but always remember to read TMI first, children!  (God how many times am I going to mention this book?!)

I actually don’t particularly remember crying over either of the TDA books, but honestly, you’d have to be heartless not to. Also you are heartless if you pass up the chance to make the number of likes on someone’s blog post a multiple of ten. Pure evil. (I know I had an inside joke about that with someone, but lord knows who.) Especially since my last blog post is at 59. Help guys!

My Bookish Life: Sunset or Sunrise?

Image result for sunset white bay

Getting emotional over this picture because I’m dying to be there. Meanwhile in New England…it’s absolutely BOILING HOT. *checks weather app* WOAH SIXTY DEGREES? THIS IS MADNESS.

I mean, after all it’s ONLY JUNE 4TH. I’m so distraught over the weather so far! There have been a few days in the eighties, but it hasn’t warmed up any since April for the most part. Currently wishing I carried out that plan to run away while on vacation…

And the biggest question of all…

Shouni: If Tessa, Clary and Emma were all in mortal peril and you could save one of them, who would it be?

Image result for emma carstairs

Oh god. It would have to be Emma. I feel like my answer is slightly biased though, since I just finished Lord of Shadows on Sunday. Speaking of which, I REALLY want to review that book, but it’s a sequel, (I dislike reviewing sequels for so many reasons) and I never even reviewed Lady Midnight soooo…

Back to Emma: She’s like my fictional idol. I don’t even know what to say lol. She’s just totally amazing. And then when her and Julian are doing pretty much ANYTHING together, it’s like the best thing in the world. They walk into the room together, **(high pitched) ahhhhhhh**. Not because they’re cute (although that too) but because they’re like power and fierceness and perfect warriors when they have eachother’s backs. You are probably high-key (is that even a thing??) judging me if you haven’t read TDA. If you have: yay you can fangirl with me over Emma and Jules!

Many thanks to the awesome bloggers who took the time to comment those questions! Also thanks to just everyone for getting my blog to 500 followers, you guys are so amazinggggg!!! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

  1. CONGRATULATIONS ON 500, DEAR!!! I might enter since no addresses have to be given out or anything… BUT I hate talking about blogging to my parents and would probably have to ask permission to enter the giveaway. XD I’M WEIRD. I KNOW. And if you ever write a book, share some of it on your blog! I totally want to become a YA author too. 🙂

    • THANK YOU MAY!! Ahaha yes, if I ever write a book (although I’m usually pretty bad at finishing just about any story I start) I will DEFINITELY share it on my blog. 😁😁 You have to promise to do the same; even if you write the book and haven’t used your blog in 30 years (which would be a tragedy, and you would be missed dearly) you STILL would have to write a blog post about it. 😂

  3. You live in NW? I live a little south, in NJ! Congrats on 500! You deserve a lot more. And for the contest, it has three places to insert info. Two are the same, your blog url, and the instagram. I put my name, email, and my blog url twice, and then I closed the page. Should I redo it?

  4. CONGRATS ON 500! It is seriously an accomplishment and such a happy moment! I remember when I got the notification about hitting 500, the smile didn’t leave my face for days!


  5. CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN SARAH (because I think I’ve congratulated you before? Though who knows with my memory). OH MY GOSH I had a feeling you’d choose Emma! (I would also choose Emma, maybe even Tessa). I would love to read a Lord of Shadows review from you even though you haven’t reviewed Lady Midnight. Reading Lord of Shadows reviews is how I cope with waiting for the next book (waiting is so hard!!!).


  6. Ahhh CONGRATS Sarah!!! 🙌❤❤ I hope you don’t have to stop blogging because of school either ahhh that would be such a shame! And aw you are totally friendly don’t worry! 😂❤ Thanks so much for this giveaway lovely and once again congratsss omg what a greag milestone. 😊

    • Thanks!! Omg liar YES YOU WILL. I’m trying to remember when your blog started….it wasn’t too long ago was it? (Winter?) if I’m totally off I’m really sorry! But I DO know that my blog was a failure for my first HALF A YEAR. ACTUALLY. (You would only know if you had seen it….ACK getting gross blog flashbacks now.) Lady Midnight is the best, and also thank you for entering! 😊
