liebster award

Hello my lovely friends!

I was nominated by the wonderful Lauren Busser at Comma Hangover  quite a while back, but am finally posting the required post about it now. Thank you Lauren, for nominating me 🙂 Everyone, go check out her amazing blog!

Here are the rules:

1) You must acknowledge the person who nominated you and display the award
2) Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you
3) Give eleven facts about yourself
4) Nominate 11 blogs that you think are deserving of the award.


My Questions

1. Is there a book that has inspired you to travel to a certain place (or put it on your bucket list)?

Back in time? I loooove historical fiction.

2. What is one quote that has always stuck in your mind from the moment you read it?
“And In That Moment I Swear We Were Infinite”. -The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

4. What are you thoughts on poetry? Love it? Hate it? Lets discuss!
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! But I always need to discuss the poem with someone. I feel like you get a deeper understanding of the poem, when you hear the interpretations of various people.

5. Are you a writer? What is the first thing you remember writing?
Not by profession, but I did attempt writing a story once. I have trouble with commitment…

6. Do you have a particular soundtrack you like to read by or do you read in total silence? Can you give us a short list of songs you find perfect for reading?
I prefer reading in total silence, but if I do listen to music, I listen to quite instrumental music that doesn’t distract me from the book. Such as Yiruma, or the Piano Guys.

7. What are your hobbies outside of reading? Do you do anything fun on weekends?
Baking, violin, running, eating, making music… Weekends are usually reserved for volunteer work and church. I know, I’m a bore.

8. Does you community have a local independent bookseller? What is unique about them that you love and why do you keep going back?
NO!! We live in a small community that doesn’t have much of anything. Our library does have a great free book section though!

9. Do you belong to any book clubs? Have any feelings about book clubs in general?
I’m a part of the Our Shared Self, Goodreads online club.

10. Is there an upcoming release that hasn’t been buzzed about enough that you would like to give a shout out to?
I tend to not keep up with new releases, mainly because I’m so busy keeping up with already released books!

11. Open your current book to Page 128 and post the first full sentence here.

I am currently reading Oliver Twist online, so I’ll just post the first full sentence from Chapter 4. :It was late next morning when Oliver awoke, from a sound, long sleep.” That sounds amazing, coming from a jet lagged, not adjusted to the time change girl like me.

  2. Thanks for the nomination! I’ve done it twice before but I’ll totally do it again. Great quote! I watched the movie but still need to read the book. I also read laying down. I thought I was the only one who liked doing that. It’s very relaxing. I loved reading your answers. 🙂

  3. Thanks so much for the nomination! It may take me a little while to get around to this one because I have a few others in my queue first but it’s on my list of tags now so I won’t forget it! 😀
    Also great answers, I really loved reading them all. My love of time travel books means I’d love to travel back in time as well, also I really love that quote from The Perks of Being a Wallflower, it’s such an iconic one as well. You’re facts were great to read too; I’m a massive fan of green tea as well, I can’t get enough of it! 🙂
    Thanks again for the tag! ❤

  5. Thanks for the tag! All the other kids in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory were SO ANNOYING. Watching that movie was a mix of “omg so pretty yes looks delicious” and “WHAT’S THIS KID DOING” for me.

    PS: And noodles are the best. I love carbs omg I wish they’re as good for you as veggies are.

  6. Thank you for the nomination!! This is quite insightful. Your pastimes besides reading aren’t that boring at all, if you ask me. 😛 And, oh my gawd. Augustus. He was such an annoying kid in the movie. My younger self definitely despised him as well! XD
