The Liebster Award!
I was nominated for this award by the wonderful Jenny at World of a Bibliophile.
Thanks a lot for nominating me, you've been really amazing! Guys, check out her blog, if you haven't already!
These are the rules you have to follow after being nominated:
1. Acknowledge the blog that nominated you and display the award.
2. Answer the 11 questions that the blog gives you.
3. Give 11 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 5-11 blogs that you think are deserving of the award that have less than 200 followers.
5. Let the blogs know you have nominated them.
6. Give them 11 questions to answer.
Here are the 11 questions I answered:
1. What inspired you to start your blog?
I have always loved books, and have been playing around with the idea of starting a blog for a while, I just wasn't sure what to blog about that I wouldn't get tired or, or run out of things to talk about. Then realized book blogging was the perfect solution!
2. If there was one book to be adapted into a movie, which book would you like it to be?
This is hard, I love books, and movies, but I love them each for different reasons. If I had to pick? I would love to see the Oran trilogy by Midori Snyder.
But I'm dying to have the Eragon books redone with movie quality like they did the LotR books <3 I just feel they have potential, that was destroyed in the movie.
3. Do you judge/purchase book by its cover?
Haha, guilty! I don't but I often notice books first by their covers, if they catch my eye, I'm more likely to read the back, and remember it. I often do this at the library, and found many of my favorite books that way, but I also have favorite authors and publishers that I like to look through.
4. Since when did you start reading?
Fourth grade. I really couldn't read until I was in fourth grade, but as soon as I was able to read on my own, I couldn't read enough to satisfy. I slowed down some when life got busy, but missed it, and am supper happy to have more reading time again!
5. Whom do you ship the most? (Any characters from T.V or books)
You can't ask that! Haha too many...
Murtach and Nasuada from the Inheritance Cycle (Murtagh was always my favorite, and I want him happy! XD)
Tv...Tom and Annie from the Horse Whisper (I haven't read the book yet so this counts as TV XD)
6. Which is the one thing that creeps you out?
7.How much average time do you spend on reading in a day?
At least a few hours a day, more if I can! Also if I can't put a book down, I'll carry it around with me XD
8. Which is your all time favorite book?
I don't have just one...but the one that comes to mind, well three
The King Raven trilogy by Stephen Lawhead (A Robin Hood retelling)
