The Liebster Award

Thank you Riddhi for nominating me! I just got my first award and now my second so whoop! If you guys have a chance, check out her blog for all things books.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and give a link to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions asked of you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions
  • Notify your nominees once you have uploaded your post

Riddhi’s Questions:

  1. What is the one thing you like about my blog? What is the one thing you donโ€™t? (Sorry, I just really want feedback from my readers)
    I mentioned this in my previous award post, but I love how engaged and positive you are within the blogging community. It makes me want to be more engaged and I have definitely been turned onto quite a few other bloggers to follow by your suggestions. I think one improvement could be adding hyperlinks of the Goodreads link or even where to buy the book into your book reviews. I always find it helpful when I can just click on a link and read more about a book if it peaks my interest.
  2. Where do you see yourself five years from now?
    I will hopefully find a spot I went to settle down in and start saving for a house. I am hoping to still spend the next few years travelling and moving around, but in 5 years, I don’t think it will continue to be the most sustainable life haha.
  3. What do you think will be your next 5-star read?
    So I have about 10-12 books downloaded on my kindle waiting to be read. Some have been there for awhile because I have a bad habit of putting books off for some reason, but I think my next 5 star read will either be Crown of Secrets by Melanie Cellier or Feels Like Home by Jo Cox.
  4. One piece of advice you wish you had when you started blogging?
    Hm that’s tough because I still feel like I need someone to tell me some advice. I feel like I am doing this sort of blindly, but I enjoy doing it so that’s okay haha.
  5. How do you treat a reading slump?
    I will either reread a book I know I love or I will find a new book that is quick, easy, and fun so I can read it without a whole lot of thinking.
  6. Do you aspire to write a book someday?
    Yes! I have always wanted to do this. While I think I have some ideas in my head and I am a big picture person and I struggle focusing on details. Writing a book is all in the details so I think it would take me much longer to actually put together everything that the actually writing flow.
  7. One person who inspires you?
    My madre of course. She is awesome and I have no idea what I would do without her.
  8. What book or book series were you not expecting to love/hate?
    Hm, that’s a tough one. I feel like I go into books expecting to really like them or I wouldn’t want to read them. If I hate it, I am fairly quick to DNF a book, then I promptly forget about it unless it triggered me in some moral way. I know Leia Stone co-wrote a book called “Return to You” that I absolutely hated and DNF’d it for the way it portrayed women who get abortions. I love just about everything Stone has written in her fantasy novels, but this book offended me and I am sure many other readers so much, I am shocked it was printed.
  9. What is one thing that you love about the book blogging community? 
    I feel like everyone I see is fun and engaging. It also great to connect with fellow bibliophiles and get new book recommendations.
  10. What are your top 3 favorite fictional cities/kingdoms/regions?
    Hogwarts, of course. I think every little kid wanted their owl to come with their letter. I would also love to visit Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, because of course! And lastly, a Great Gatsby party.
  11. A GIF that describes your current read?
    I literally will stay up all night every night to read.

  1. I am going to steal this from Riddhi’s questions, but do you have feedback for my blog?
  2. What are your favorite type of blog posts to write? (i.e. book reviews, tags, etc.)
  3. What book do you most highly recommend that everyone reads?
  4. How old were you when you really started to get into reading? What made you want to start reading?
