Liebster Award.

IMG_2393

I was nominated to do the Liebster Award by Josie at Josies Book Corner. I’ve been nominated before, but I decided I would do it again. I love Josie’s blog and it’s been so awesome becoming friends with her. I definitely recommend everyone to check out her blog and follow her!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  2. Display the award on your blog – by including it in your post/ or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post).
  3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person you nominated you.
  4. Nominate 5-11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!).
  5. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
  6. List these rules in your post. (You can copy and paste).
  7. Find some way to inform those who have nominated you.

Questions from Josie:

1. FAVORITE BOOK YOU’VE READ THIS YEAR?
I’ve read so many great books so far this year, but my favorite that I read this year would have to be Take Me With You by Catherine Ryan Hyde. It’s such a great read!

2. PICK A CHARACTER YOU LIKE AND A SONG THEY’D SERENADE TO THEIR OTHER HALF.
I’m drawing a complete blank with this one! Sorry 😦 I’m definitely going to think about this though and maybe I’ll edit the post later with it or answer at a later time in another post.

3. A QUOTE THAT INSPIRES YOU.
“What’s the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” – John Green, An Abundance of Katherines.

4. A CHARACTER YOU WOULD DATE IF THEY WERE REAL.
This was kind of hard to answer, surprisingly. I think I would choose Tobias from Divergent or Minho from The Maze Runner. I love them both so much!

5. A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU OR A BOOK THAT YOU DIDN’T EXPECT TO LIKE.
Angelfall by Susan Ee definitely surprised me and I also loved it so much and didn’t expect that I would like it so much! The second book was just as great (World After) and I am impatiently waiting for the next book! The series has been so awesome so far.

6. NAME AN AUTHOR YOU’D LOVE TO MEET AND PICK THEIR BRAINS.
I am so shy and probably wouldn’t have the guts to ever meet an author, but if I could, I would want to meet Veronica Roth or Rick Riordan. I love them both and their books! Mitch Albom would also be great to meet.

7. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF BOOK TO READ ON A COLD WINTER DAY?
Probably some type of thriller/paranormal type book. I think it fits the mood of a cold and winter day, perfectly. I live in Florida though, so cold and wintery type days is pretty much non-existent. So I’m not entirely sure what book I would gravitate to if I was in the situation.

8. DO YOU HAVE A BOOK THAT YOU READ EVERY YEAR OR HAVE RE-READ MORE THAN ONCE?
I actually don’t have a book that I read every year, but a book that I have reread more than once was The Diary of a Young Girl. I love Anne Frank and her book. I’ve read that for school and then I read it again on my own. I believe I’ve read it three times.

9. FAVORITE ENDING TO A BOOK?
My favorite ending to a book was The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. It was the perfect ending and it is one of my favorite books.

10. A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth; I cried forever it seemed like. I had to stop reading for a while, because I couldn’t see the letters clearly from crying so much. I cried long after I read it and every time I thought about the book. Also, Messenger (third book in the Giver Quartet) by Lois Lowry. That book tore me apart and for days I was talking about it and crying when I thought about it. You can check out my post on the series over here and I posted a picture of myself after I read the book (well after I kind of calmed down from crying, lol). After reading Messenger, I got into a huge reading slump that lasted me the entire rest of the year and I refused to read the last book until four months after I read Messenger.

11. A BOOK YOU BELIEVE EVERY BOOK-LOVER SHOULD READ, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR PREFERENCES.
This is kind of hard to answer, but I always recommend Eightysixed: Life Lessons Learned by Emily Belden. It’s actually a book that I didn’t think I would even like that much, but ended up loving so much. I’ve mentioned it before how I probably never would have found the book had the author not comment on one of my Instagram pictures about it.

I really loved answering these questions. They were such great questions! This is kind of breaking the rules, but I’m going to skip nominating anyone. I would love for everyone to do it and answer the above questions that I answered. If you do decide to do it, link me to your post or you can tell me your questions in the comments section if you like. 🙂

I need to get myself out of this mini-reading slump I am in, so I am off to read The Glass Arrow. So far it’s okay, but I haven’t been in the reading mood and have only read 45 pages over an eight day period of trying to read it. It’s kind of sad, because I bought so many books over the last month that I really want to get around to reading. I’m hoping by getting further into The Glass Arrow it will pull me out of the reading slump.

    • I like it so far too, but this reading slump is preventing me from really getting into reading it. 😦 I am hoping I can finish it this week by the latest.
