The Liebster Award


I have a different kind of post for you today Bookish Babes! I was nominated for The Liebster Award by Of Reading and Random Things and I thought this would be a good way for you guys to find out a little bit more about me. The Liebster Award is something given to bloggers by bloggers. From what I understand it is a way to recognize great blogs and find new ones!

The rules are simple, answer the questions posed by whoever nominated you then create your own set of questions and nominate 11 other bloggers!

  • What book(s) have you read more than once?
    • Arena by Karen Hancock – I read this book at least once a year, especially if I’m not feeling very much like myself and need a bit of re-centering.
    • Harry Potter series – I read these about every other year
    • Pendragon series by DJ MacHale
    • The Host by Stephanie Meyer
  • Do you read non-fiction books (biographies, history books, economy, etc.)?
    • I do read non-fiction books, however that is not the genre I am typically drawn to. I have been trying to branch out a bit more into other genres.
  • Have you ever bought a book just because the cover is really pretty?
    • Of course! I bought a 1978 collector’s edition of The Three Musketeers at a local bookstore in Austin, TX last year. It’s probably the prettiest book I own and I love it! I have yet to read it though….
  • Do you like to cook? Is there anything you cook that is inspired by something you’ve read?
    • Oh I am most definitely not a natural cook. I leave that task to my talented husband!
  • Do you eat/snack while reading?
    • Do you not? Snacks/tea are a must when reading.
  • If you are stranded on an island and have only 3 books with you, what would they be?
    • Arena that I mentioned before.
    • Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, it’s my favorite in the series.
    • Probably some sort of survival book, I feel like that could be pretty helpful, ha!
  • Have you ever liked a movie adaptation more than the book?
    • I actually liked the Scorch Trials much better than the book. I found the book to have too many ideas that caused the story line to be all over the place and confusing. The movie simplified the plot in a more understandable way.
  • Do you write stories? If you do, what kind of stories do you write?
    • No stories, just this blog! I’m still fairly new to writing, but I’m trying to get better.
  • Is there a book(s) that you didn’t want to like but end up liking anyway?
    • I always want to like what I read! Otherwise I wouldn’t be reading it.
  • On a scale of 1-10, how weird are you?
    • Well this just depends on who you ask. I certainly don’t consider myself overly normal 😉
  • What kind of music do you listen to?
    • Alternative Rock and Punk are my jam! A few of my favorites:
      • Mayday Parade
      • My Chemical Romamce
      • Andrew McMahon
      • Senses Fail
