Liebster Award!

Darque Dreamer Reads nominated me for the Liebster Award a long time ago, but I am so very behind on my blog that I am just getting to posting about it now! Thanks so much for the nomination! Please also go show her some love, she's a blogger I recently connected with and a super cool person! And then as I was working on this post Haley from Beautifully Books also nominated me! It's very nice and humbling to be nominated twice!

I've been spending a lot of my free time just reading so I can complete my quest path for The Reading Quest. When you work full time and run a book blog sometimes it hard to find time to both read and write reviews. So I've sacrificed some of my blogging time so I can actually get some reading done. I have SO many reviews I need to write! SO MANY!!!

If you are a book blogger you probably have seen the Liebster Award, and I think it's awesome because I love discovering new blogs and making new connections!

  1. Have you read a book with a perfect ending? 
    HM...probably yes, but I can't think off the top of my head which books that would be.
  2. Does your favorite movie have a perfect ending?
    Well...not really. My favorite movie is Casablanca. It's a good ending, but not one we would call "perfect" 
  3. Why did you start your blog?
    I started it so I could talk about my writing, but it ended up becoming all about books.
  4. Do you have a follower goal in mind?
    Not really. I haven't been one that cares that much about followers and traffic. I'm pretty apathetic to it. This is for fun, so I shouldn't worry too much about it.
  5. What advice would you give to your beginner blog self?
    Network with other bloggers earlier, use social media more.
  6. Where is the best place you have visited?
    The Falls at Ricketts Glen National Park in my state.

    I'm not sure I really have one. This is a hard question. Maybe Meg Cabot because she gives really good advice about the writing craft. And she's my favorite author.
  8. What is your favorite book or movie genre?
    Definitely Sci-Fi
  9. If you could write yourself in to a book or movie, which one would you be a character in?

    MUSHROOMS! Why does every vegetarian meal have to include it? WHY?!??

  1. How long have you been blogging?
    I have been blogging for 3 years!!
  2. If you could only read three books for the rest of your life, what would they be?
    Okay, probably Outlander, A Game of Thrones & The Princess Diaries. Are the first two cheating because they are so long?
  3. Do you prefer paperback or ebooks? Why?
    Hm...paperbacks, although ebooks are way easier to transport.
  4. What are your top three favorite genres for books?
    Scifi, Fantasy & murder mystery.

    Maybe, The Martian? As for least favorite there are a lot to chose from but I'm going to say The Golden Compass.
  6. If you enter any fictional world, which would it be?
    This is isn't book related, but Mass Effect. I want to fight the Reapers.

    For people to answer my emails!

    Jon Snow.

    No, because every time I try it I hate the book!
