Liebster Blog Award #1

Charlie of Charlie, Coffee and a Good Book nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award. I was confused at first as to what this is exactly so I did a bit of research but I'll get to that later. Or if you're impatient, you may scroll down to the very end. I do hope you'll take the time to read my answers. They're not very long. *wink*

Thank you Charlie for the nomination! This is pretty cool. ;-)

You may reach Charlie through the links below:


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)

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


Questions from Charlie:

1. How many hours do you spend in blogging?
It depends if I'm just browsing our working on a post. If I'm writing a review or some other blog post it usually takes me between 30 minutes to an hour. If I feel like browsing blogs then... I tend to lose track of time.

2. Print or eBook? (This is such a boring question, I know!)
Both. Prints smell nice by eBooks come by easily and frequently.

3. Do you have a book that you haven't read/finished yet? What is it?
LOADS. Wicked, Tuck Everlasting, Do Not Disturb, Revelations, Shatter Me... to name a few. I'm a hoarder.

4. If you were to write a book, what would be your lead character's name?
Vanessa. Woah I don't know why I just said that.

5. What book do you wish you were a part of? As in one of the characters.
Harry Potter, post-Voldemort

6. What is your pet peeve in books?
Insta love story lines.

7. What is the book fandom you've been a part of since forever?
Harry Potter!!!

8. How do you arrange your bookshelf?
Right now one shelf contains books that are part of a series, then the other shelf are standalone books. Then I arranged them by color. I want more books with eye-catching spines so I can make a rainbow in my shelf! (that sounded dorky)

9. What was the last book that surprised you, whether good or bad? Plot twists, characters, expectations, etc. 
The Color of Grace by Linda Kage. I didn't expect the book to be so... light and heartwarming. I thought it would be one of those books that's unnecessarily full of drama.

10. What book have you read several times? Are you still planning to read it again?
Up to this day I haven't read a book twice. When I do I think it'll be Percy Jackson.

11. How is your ultimate fictional crush?
THIS QUESTION IS HARD, CHARLIE. Honestly, how do you expect me (and the 10 others you nominated) to choose just ONE. *deep in thought* Etienne St. Clair of Anna and the French Kiss


11 Random Facts About Me

1. I have 6 Shih Tzu at home, 2 boys and 4 girls. I love them all very very very much.

2. I'm 5 feet tall. 

3. I dip my Oreos in orange juice/soda.

4. I hate cats. I like looking at kittens though.

5. My favorite color is actually red, not pink.

6. I'm a Finance major who's not really fond of math. But I get by.

7. I know all the lines in Mean Girls.

8. I love Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift. So when they collaborated for a track on Taylor's album, Red, I was ecstatic.

9. I'm hot-headed.

10. But I try not to be. Really trying.

11. I have a thing for Oolong tea.

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! ;-)
