Liebster Award!

Today I am very happy to announce that I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by Kelley over at Bibliophile Bliss and by Erin at Hardcover Lover! Thank you, Kelly! I've only been blogging for a month so this is a huge honor and has fueled my confidence as a book blogger.

Once you are nominated, you must follow these rules in order to get this award:

1. Link & Thank the blogger who nominated you

2. Answer the 11 questions your nominator gives you 
3. Tag 11 other bloggers who have 200 or less followers
4. Ask the 11 bloggers you nominated 11 questions and let them know you nominated them!

Kelly's Questions

Where do you buy your books?
Barnes and Noble

What are you currently reading?
A Game of Thrones

Last book you did not finish and why?
The Bell Jar because I got bored

If you could meet any one in the world (it can be fictional), who would you meet and why?
Throwing in that fictional aspect made this difficult. I would probably want to meet Molly Weasley because she is so caring and maybe she would knit me a sweater.

Favorite book to movie adaptation.
Either The Book Thief or The Help. I thought both were loyal to the book and really captured the themes of the book.

Most anticipated book for 2014.
I don't actually know because I don't pay attention to upcoming releases.

Love triangles. Hate or love them and why. 
Hate them. They get repetitive and add uncessecary drama. There are so many other ways to add a struggle to a story.

Who is your favorite book boyfriend and why?
Like a character in a book who is a boyfriend to a character or a character I would want as a boyfriend? I really like Park in Eleanor & Park as a boyfriend in that story but I would want Sirius Black as my boyfriend because he is my fictional crush.

If you were stranded on an island, what would be the three things you would choose to have with you?
I'm going to turn this into three books I would have with me: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
3 random facts about you.
I can say the alphabet backwards from memory
I have a dog named Stanley (he was named after the Stanley Cup)
I really like doing still life paintings

Lastly, which book is next on your TBR pile?
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as a part of my reread.

Erin's Questions

Why did you decide to start blogging?
I have been watching a lot (I'm serious when I say a lot) of booktube videos and wanted to be able to share my love of books, but didn't want to do it on a video platform so I resorted to blogging instead! 

Are there any books set in your hometown? If so, what one(s)?
None that I know of. I would be very surprised if there are.

Who are some of your auto-buy authors?
Jonathan Safran Foer and JK Rowling

What is your favorite series?
Harry Potter hands down

Do you like fantasy or dystopia better? Why?
Usually dystopia because I find it easier to connect to.

Have you ever written a book?
I have written short stories, but none were very good. 

What are some of your favorite book blogs?
Just everyone I follow

What is your favorite book you had to read for school?
Crime and Punishment. One of my all time favorites actually.

What are you currently reading?
A Game of Thrones

Are there any books that you just know you won't read even though everyone tells you that they are great?
The only books I can think of at the moment are The Giver and The Host

What is your favorite thing about the book blog community? Why?
I just love how excited everyone is about books and how supportive everyone is of each other! This award is proof of that!

Who I nominate:

I actually don't follow many book blogs at the moment so there is no one eligible for me to nominate at the moment.

That is all for this post today. I want to thank Erin and Kelly again for nominating me and I'm sorry that I literally have no one to nominate for this award.
Also so sorry if the formatting is really strange and if some things just look funky. I can't seem to fix it at the moment.
