Thank you bookloverbabbles for nominating me for the Liebster Award.
Until now I didn’t quite know what this award is about but now that I looked into it a bit I think it’s a nice idea to bring recognition to newer blogs.
The rules of this award are as follows:
11 QUESTIONS BY BOOKLOVERBABBLES:
1. Booktubers or Book bloggers?
Until now I didn’t know “Booktubers” existed, so I guess I’d go for Book bloggers.
2. What’s your favorite stand alone?
This is a bit awkward but I have no idea what stand alone is. Once I find out, I’ll decide which one’s my favourite 🙂
3. The longest you’ve gone without reading?
Not sure… If I’m not reading a book, at least I go through some blogs, news and such, so I guess I can say I read every day.
4. Who’s your favorite fictional villain?
Tom Marvolo Riddle a.k.a. Lord “nosey” Voldemort.
5. What’s a genre you’re beginning to like?
A “virtual literature”. By that I mean blog posts and all other beautiful short pieces I sometimes find online.
6. What novel would you most like a film adaption on?
It doesn’t really matter. It will end up a movie anyway. I’m sure of it 😉
7. Your favorite book as a child?
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
8. Which book are you always recommending to others?
Haruki Murakami – South of the Border, West of the Sun, or Richard Yates – Revolutionary Road.
9. A book/series you think is underrated?
Young Hearts Crying by Richard Yates.
10. Do you prefer reading a book with just one POV or multiple?
Multiple most definitely.
11. Do you write?
Yes. I’m writing a novel which I’m gonna finish maybe in like 10 years (judging from the pace of my progress).
ELEVEN RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME:
- I frown a lot which is why I’ve recently discovered a wrinkle in between my eyebrows.
- Talking about eyebrows, I’m pretty proud of mine.
- My favourite colour is black (and white).
- I love British accent.
- I’m a huge collector. Or you call me a hoarder. I collect/hoard everything.
- My favourite english words are rain, river and willow. I love how they sound and what they represent.
- I admit I sometimes buy a book only because I like the title.
- I fell in love with the Lord of the Rings when I was 12 – year 2000 (before it was cool). I started reading it only because I liked the title.
- I am a huge Potter fan too.
My mum bought meBaby Jesus got me the first book for Christmas which I regard as an important milestone in my life.
- I sometimes like to refer to myself in third person.
- I like putting stickers on everything. Look what I’ve done to my poor old laptop.
I NOMINATE THESE BLOGGERS:
I was going through the list of those who follow my blog and those who I follow and I genuinely thought I’m easily going to pick 11 of them. But it wasn’t that easy. Why? Because I’m kinda weird, I don’t know. I couldn’t pick anyone because I have this block inside of me that doesn’t allow me to ask or to suggest anything to people I don’t know personally. I don’t want them to feel obliged to answer my questions or whatever. Hard to explain.
So I therefore nominate anyone who:
1. Reads this post.
2. Has ever read anything on my blog and it’s obvious I know of his/hers blog – meaning that I’ve liked or commented on his/hers posts.
3. Wants to answer my questions and keep this Liebster Award going by nominating other people.
So go ahead and think of this as if I’m nominating you 🙂
