I'm a LiebsterJuly 02, 2014
Oh, the Liebster Award! This award has been going around since I started blogging about three years ago. Glad to see it's still going strong. I've gotten nominated by Fairley and Brianna but I'll do Fairley's questions since she nominated me first!
So what is a Lieberster? The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The meaning: Liebster is German, and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Who the heck knows if that is really correct but it's sweet. Blogging is about building a community and The Liebster Award is a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.
Here's how it works:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
I love being able to escape to faraway places! It is like time travel but with a cup of tea and a comfy couch.
2. Who is your favorite fictional character?
That is really such a hard question. I love so many characters for so many reasons. I'll put it this way: I wish I had Hermione Granger's passion, Tris Prior's bravery, and Celaena Sardothian's bad-assness.
I really didn't like Cassia Reyes from the Matched series. She felt very flat and underwhelming to me. Her love interests were far more interesting to read about, so I really enjoyed the third book which featured their viewpoints.
Haven't we all. I truly don't pay much heed to what other people say about books. I read what I like and I like most of what I read. Not every book is for every person. The only books I really didn't like that others raved about were The Alchemist and Girls in White Dresses. Neither of them did it for me but others really seemed to like them.
It's a tie between Classic Literature (mostly the Brits) and YA. Pretty much anything that gives me the feels.
There is no clear winner here. My current favorites are Jane Austen and Sarah J. Maas. I have been reading a lot from both of them lately.
Does ANYONE have just one favorite book? I'll go ahead and say Ella Enchanted. It was my favorite as a child and it still inspires my love of fairytales as an adult. (The movie is a TRAVESTY. DON'T WATCH IT.)
About a week.
I cry at everything. I'd give more details but... spoilers!
