Liebster Award!

  • link back and thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
  • answer the eleven questions they give you
  • tag up to eleven blogger who have 200 or less followers
  • ask your nominees eleven questions and let them know you tagged them!

Questions from Alex:

1. What are you currently reading?

Right now I’m doing a Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas read-along and I’m on Heir of Fire. I’ve been wanting to re-read this book forever and I’m loving it so much.

2. What would you like to read next?

Next I’m hoping to read The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. My sister got it for me for Christmas and I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.

3. A book that isn’t hyped but really should be?

I absolutely adore The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, and the rest of the series, but I never really hear anyone talking about them. Which is a shame because they are one of my favorite series right now.

4. Favorite book cover?

How can I possibly pick? Even though I didn’t enjoy the book very much, I love the cover of A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. So pretty.

5. Who/What inspired you to start blogging and why?

I’ve always been a huge reader and unfortunately never had any friends who share my love of books. I went through a huge year long reading slump and when I finally snapped out of it, I decided to jump back into reading full force. I started my book blog, updated my Goodreads account, and started making YouTube videos. It gets a little hectic sometimes but I don’t regret it one bit.

6. Top three book genres?

Fantasy, sci-fi, and paranormal/supernatural. I know that last one ties in with fantasy but I personally view them as separate genres.

7. Do you have any other passions besides reading/writing?

Recently I’ve discovered that I really like making videos, as long as I’m talking about books. Besides that, I’m a huge PC gamer and a big nerd when it comes to video games. I kind of jump between going through reading and gaming phases.

8. Top 3 favorite blogs/bloggers?

The first blogger I ever fell in love with was burdge because of her beautiful art and positive attitude about everything. If you look at her older art, it was all from books that I loved. Besides her, I really love watching Regan and Kassidy’s booktube videos.

9. If you could live in any fictional world, which would you choose and why?

Obviously I would want to live at Hogwarts and be a witch. I really shouldn’t need to explain myself on this one.

10. Hardcover or paperbacks?

Gah, I love them both. Hardcover because they are prettier. Paperbacks because they are cheaper and easier to carry around.

11. Which fictional character could you relate to the most?

Probably Hermione. I’m a huge bookworm, I always did well in school, and my best friends are guys. I always have to be the responsible one and clean up their messes or get them out of tough situations. I can sympathize with her a lot.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Kelly’s Questions:

1. What was the last book that made you cry?

The last book that made me cry was Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas. Not to spoil anything, but the part of the ending was heartbreaking, I sobbed like a baby and cursed the world.

2. What is a really underrated book that you would love to see on the big screen? Why?

I don’t know if it qualifies as underrated by I would love to see a movie of Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. The book is absolutely amazing and seeing it on the big screen would be magical if done right. I consider it an underrated book just because I personally don’t know many people that have read it and I never hear people talking about it.

3. What is something in a book that has to be well-done for you to like it? (For me, it’s characterization.) Is it plot, setting, characters, etc?

I have to agree, characterization is key. I don’t care how good the plot is, if the characters suck, I’m not going to give a crap. But if the plot is bad but I love the characters, I can usually make my way through the book.

4. Is there a book that you consider your guilty pleasure? If so, why?

The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. I completely stand by these books, they are amazing and so well written. The only reason I consider them guilty pleasure is because when I try to explain them to people, they sound kind of dorky, like a typical sexy paranormal romance mass paperback book series. They aren’t. Also, I reread them constantly because the romance is smoking and the fight scenes are beyond badass. Definitely a guilty pleasure read.

5. What is your favorite book setting? (Stuff like this -> Fantasy AU, Boarding School, Hollywood, New York, Foreign Countries, etc.)

I love Fantasy and Medieval settings. Nothing gets my book nerd blood pumping like horse rides and sword fights and no showers. Yep.

6. What is a book that you want to read purely for the cover?

Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White. Check out that cover and you’ll know why.

7. Is there a book that you’ve tried to read innumerable times but have never been able to finish? What is it?

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. I have no idea why, I love Graceling and Fire, but I just cannot get into this book. I’ve reread the series a few times, but I can never get more than halfway through Bitterblue.

8. What is your OTP (One True Pairing)?

Oh jeesh, I honestly couldn’t choose. I ship so many couples, it physically hurts me to think about. I love Percy and Annabeth to death and I just read Blood of Olympus so I’m all over them. I honestly just depends on what book I’ve read most recently haha.

9. Why and when did you start your book blog?

I actually started my blog officially about a year ago but barely did anything before giving it up for months. I recently started it back up last month and I’m much more determined now and having a great time. I started it because I’ve always loved books but have a lack of book friends in real life. I wanted to share my thoughts and passion with people who understand and appreciate it. So I started my book blog and recently started up a booktube channel too.

 10. If you estimate, what is most books you’ve ever checked out from your library?

In one go? Probably about 20. But over all, I couldn’t even begin to guess. Being completely serious, I kinda have my own spot on the holds shelf, just because I always have so many books waiting for me at the library. The librarians think I’m hilarious.

11. What is your favorite type of post to write for your blog?

I like doing just basic reviews. I love nothing more than reading a good book and getting on and typing up everything I thought. I love when I get into a conversation with someone about it. And, I’ll admit, I like bashing on crappy books sometimes too, you just have to let it out.
