Liebster Blog Award #3

I would like to thank Melanie of YA Midnight Reads for "nominating" me. I really appreciate it ;-)

I'll deviate from the Liebster Blog Award rules for and just answer the questions. I'm sorry for not playing by the rules but it's so much work :-( I'll nominate 11 bloggers in a different Liebster post but I'm afraid I can't nominate every time. I might run out of people to nominate. Heh (I'm serious)

The rules of the Liebster Award are as follows:

1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog and link back to the blogger who presented this award to you;

2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself and create 11 questions for your nominees;

3. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been chosen. (No tag backs) (opting out of this one for now... sorry)

4. Copy and Paste the blog award on your blog.

Questions from Melanie:

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
The simplest grammar mistakes people consistently make but shouldn't. (e.g. you're/your, their/they're) I really don't want to be a grammar Nazi anymore but it still bothers me!

2. What do you like to do other than reading?
Watch/catch up on TV series: 2 Broke Girls, Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Pretty Little Liars, Modern Family, Suits

3. Do you have a habit of buying lots and lots of books?
Yes! Lately it's like I keep giving myself excuses to buy a book. Usually it's, "I'm sad. I need a new book."

4. What is your guilty obsession?
Justin Bieber's music. Don't get me wrong, I don't like Justin Bieber the person/celebrity. I just like his music. Not his music videos. Just his music. (Please don't judge me. Ha)

5. Do you have a piercing?
Just one on each earlobe.

6. Are you a morning person?
Definitely not. I'm usually crankier in the morning.

7. What is the funniest joke you've ever heard?
I can't really answer this one because the funniest joke I've heard is in Filipino. So... yeah, attempting to make it sound as funny, or even just funny in English would only be tragic. LOL

8. What is your favourite childhood book?
From The Files of Madison Finn

9. Do you still like to watch children's TV shows?
Of course! I'm 20 (turning 21 this year) and I think I'll never get tired of 'em.

10. How long do you spend blogging a day?
Err... I usually take too long like 4 or 5 hours because I can never focus on just one thing.

11. Do you think that dogs are better than cats?
Yeahuh! I have 6 dogs, by the way. So I'm very biased.

11 Random Facts About Me

1. I watch Friends while eating a bowl of instant noodles whenever I'm really really sad.

2. I own a Dell phone and I'm in love with it.

3. I think Mandy Moore is DA BOMB.

4. I love reading books by indie authors.

5. I love listening to indie music.

6. Woah does that make me a hipster?

7. I once tried not using emoticons ('haha's too) for one week. It freaked my friends out because they can never tell whether I'm pissed or not... and I loved every minute of it.

8. The next time I visit the bookstore I'll get either Anna and The French Kiss, Splintered, or The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend. I've read ANTFK and DUFF but I enjoyed them so much I want a physical copy of it. As for Splintered, I haven't read it... need I say more?

9. I hate roller coaster rides.

10. It stresses me out just thinking about Shutter Island's ending.

11. That reminds me. I didn't know Shutter Island's actually a book.

What is the Liebster Blog Award?

I was really curious to find out what this was exactly seeing that there wasn't any sort of link to its host site. I did a bit of research (no really I just Googled it and clicked the first hit) and I found Sopphey's blog entry. Apparently she also wanted to find out what the Liebster Blog Award was after being nominated three times.

Having read her post, I say this is still a fun way to reach out to other bloggers. It's a bit time consuming but I think it's a nice gesture "nominating" someone. It's more like featuring blogs than anything else. The "award" in the title can be misleading. Oops. You may opt not to do the same but if you happen to pay it forward, good for you! Making blogger friends is fun!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! ;-)
