This is our first award – so we’re new to this. But we’re not new to tags (well we’ve done 2 so far…it counts right?) Thanks again for nominating us – we are greatly honoured (and shocked – it’s not everyday someone gives ya an award…or is it 😅)

3 Things About Us

1. If you can’t already tell – then we (Shanya and Tanya) are identical twins. The scientific term is Monozygotic Twins (aka MZ twins). Tanya is older by 5 minutes (approximately). And she never lets me (Shanya) forget it! We both can agree being twins is fun – but there are (obviously) cons to it too! From little things like sharing the same birthday since birth and to the important things like being compared to each other EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Okay it’s alright if we’re compared to each other from time to time (healthy even) but come on guys – it’s like comparing yourself to another person your age for everything, any day, every day (exaggerating here)… BUT we are twins and PROUD!

2. One of us (Shanya) put an apple seed in her ear (around the age of 5) ‘cuz she wanted to copy her ever-so-sensible big sister in her “magic” trick. The other (Tanya) liked to follow strangers in the plane (around the age of 7) while having a nice convo and eating their salad… Yes we were weird… we probably still are XD

3. We were known as the “artistic twins” in our younger years – becoming members of the “Art Club”! Up until we discovered the world of science! We also stumbled upon reading – which now kinda took over our lives like a plague XD

Becky’s 5 Questions For us!

1.In your opinion, what is the most underrated book you’ve read and why?

Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)There are many underrated books out there for sure – but the one that pops into our minds at this moment has to be Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Why? Everyone has heard of the Lux series also done by the same author – but we feel like if we mention this series, people would be like “what??” and we would have to refrain ourselves from throwing this book at them. Why should we damage a perfectly good book!? Anyways guys check out our review on the first book – click here.

2.What’s your hidden talent?

We both can roll our tounges…. one of us can even roll her ears… oh we also have the amazing talent of… wait for it…PROCRASTINATING!

*P.S. We can also read each other’s minds….

3.Which celebrity (or author) would you never want to meet?

To be honest who doesn’t want to meet an author (or a celebrity)! We would want to meet all!! We don’t really have specifics on who we don’t want to meet – though we don’t want to meet negative people, which we are sure there are plenty!

4.What book(s) do you think that everyone should read?

Angelfall Trilogy: Angelfall, World After, End of Days (Penryn and the End of Days)

Penryn & the End of Days trilogy by Susan Ee. Check out our review on the first book Angelfall – click here. WE LOVE THIS GUYSSS!! 😍😍

5.If you had 3 wishes, what would you wish for?

  1. Get unlimited books for free (without wasting trees and somehow making the authors rich – so they are rewarded in publishing their awesome work)
  2. Unlimited time to do all the things we want – read, eat, sleep etc.
  3. Since it is not mentioned in the question that we cannot say this – we found a loophole: unlimited WISHES!! 😉 😉

 

*No not really, we can’t read each other’s minds 😉

Lyndsey’s 5 Questions For us!

1.Which fictional character would you play in a movie?

We would probably play those funny twins in movies which we can’t specify as there aren’t many female identical twins out there? We probably would be those characters that die early on in the movie…but we would be awesome 😉

2.Would you rather have wings and be able to fly, or turn into a mermaid when you enter water?

Shanya: Wings

Tanya: …Wings

😉

3.If you could harness any of the elements (wind, fire, water, earth), which would you prefer?

Shanya: Water

Tanya: Earth

4.Which fictional school do you wish you had attended?

You guys are lying if you never wanted to go to HOGWARTS!
P.S. I (Shanya) am a Hufflepuff and I (Tanya) am a Ravenclaw!!

Yvonne Byatt's Family Fun: HARRY POTTER PARTY: Hufflepuff=one of my best friends, Ravenclaw=me; this post is is perfect example of us together :): Google Image Result for http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-LuH8xq9iSnA/TcRXFfIzjRI/AAAAAAAAAEQ/DYBC9XKiYbw/s1600/shield_hufflepuff.jpg:

5.If you could have any mythical creature from any book as a pet, which would you choose?

 Abraxos from Throne of Glass series – who wouldn’t want a flower-loving killer as their pet! (An alternative could be the Night Fury, Toothless in How To Train Your Dragon)

Another pet (cause we love animals) would be the Niffler in Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. He soo sassy!!

And other honourable mentions would be (Baby) Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy!

And ‘cuz we’re kinda greedy for pets and (obviously) SJMaas – her other animals; Fleetfoot (dog) and the Suriel (awesome freaky-looking fortune teller, which we would keep under our bed).

Manon and Abraxos: Small dancing Groot - WANT

  3. Aw I want all of those pets too!!!! 😄 Abraxos is bae 😍 lol. I want to know which fictional characters would play you!! They don’t have to be identical bcos makeup and CGI 😂 but which characters could portray you in a film 😊 I think Belle from Beauty and the Beast could play me, or Lysandra! 😄

    1. Yeah!! They’re soo coool!!! Well we’re in this Throne of Glass phase at the moment – so we think I (Shanya) would play Elide Lochan and I (Tanya) would play….Mort (the door knob XD )… also if I must be a human i would probs play Kenji from Shatter Me (even though he’s a boy 😉 ) Beauty and the Beast is our all time fave Disney classic!! ♥♥♥ And Lysandra is a total badass 😉

  4. Unlimited books for free would be super awesome! Don’t know where I’d put them all, but that’s okay. I’m also a Hufflepuff! Loved reading your answers and getting to know you two better.

  5. Eating salad? XD That’s hilarious. I would definitely be so entertained on the plane. But I was trying to think of female identical twins and I really couldn’t think of any – you’re super right about it. But hopefully you would make it for the entire movie. 😉 And ooooh I love the unlimited time. I always think about unlimited books, but what can you do with it if you don’t have the time? XD And lol, the Suriel under the bed? So creepy, but so practical. Love it, ladies! ❤ Your answers were so much fun to read, and thanks so much for nominated me! I can't wait to do it. 😀 WOnderful post!!

    1. Yea we’re weird…🙃 Yea it was pretty hard to think of twin characters that are female and identical! We’re glad someone wanted us to live through a movie – but hey even if we died, we would so epically😎🤓!! We thought so too so we made it a wish – we have all the time in the world to READ!! We like the Suriel, who else is gonna give us the latest gossip 😉❤ Thanks for liking our post, and taking your time to read this super long post! We cannot wait to see your answers!! 😆😆😆
