Liebster Award (2)

I received a third Liebster Award from Jennie. She runs the blog A Bookworm Called Jennie. I wanted to make sure that she also receives the proper amount of thanks! Thank you so much for the nomination, Jennie! It truly was an amazing feeling to see another one!

These are the answers to the questions that Jennie asked:

  1. Q: Why did you start blogging?
    A: I had an education blog for one of my education classes, and I really enjoyed it. I had already wanted a book blog at that point, but I didn't think I had the time. When I started posting reviews more often on Goodreads, I decided to make the jump.
  2. Q: What film(s) do you love that have been adapted from books?
    I love the Harry Potter movies. I also really enjoyed the adaptation for The Perks of Being a Wallflower and both The Hunger Games and Catching Fire.
  3. Q: What is/are your favorite book blog(s)?
    A: Effortlessly Reading and The Perpetual Page-Turner 
  4. Q: What's your favorite book(s) so far this year?
    A: To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han, The One by Kiera Cass, and Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira 
  5. Q: What's your favorite book/series of all time?
    A: I'm going to go with the Harry Potter series as my favorite series. The books are just completely perfect. My favorite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
  6. Q: If you were shipwrecked on a desert island which 1 series would you want with you?
    A: I'd have to take the Harry Potter books with me. There is so much in them that I know I'd be entertained for quite a while.
  7. Q: Any book turn-offs?
    A: Paranormal books are a book turn-off for me. I really just don't like the ones I've read, so I'm afraid to try more of them. They leave me completely confused because I feel like the authors never really explain the paranormal things in their books. I'm also less likely to read a book if it's compared to The Fault in Our Stars. I really, really hated that book, so I'm skeptical of books that are compared to it.
  8. Q: What do you eat while blogging/reading?
  9. A: Well I usually always have my water bottle with me when I'm reading and blogging. It is a Camelbak, so it's pretty hard to spill on a book or my laptop. I'd cry if water landed on either. I try not to eat when I read, but because I have a keyboard skin on my Mac, I'll eat whatever is around if I'm hungry.
  10. Q: Book pet hates?
    A: I'm hoping a pet hate is the same thing as a pet peeve. I'm getting tired of love triangles.
  11. Q: Do you read books more than once?
    A: I sometimes books more than once, especially if I really liked the book.

  1. Congrats on being nominanted! Also, high five to you woman! You love the Harry Potter movies/books and the Hunger Games movies! *high five*

    1. Thank you! :)

      I feel so lame for only reading the Harry Potter books recently. (My eleven-year-old self thought that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was lame when I started it. I was a strange kid...) But I absolutely love them. My grandma searched every thrift store in the city to find me hardbacks of them so I could have my own instead of my mom's, and then crazy me went out on Black Friday last year to do grocery shopping at Walmart and all of the movies were $2, so I grabbed them.

      P.S. I can't wait for Mockingjay to come out! Can it be November now?

    2. Don't feel lame! I also love reading them and then re-reading them. I'm with you too on that one, at first, I thought they were lame, but when I first started reading them, I loved them. Ooohh, lucky you! I only have Order of Phoenix in paperback. The rest are in Kindle. *gets on knees* WHY DOES MEXICO HAVE TO HAVE SO LITTLE BOOKS STORES?! I can't wait either! So excited! Is it coming out this November? I also can't wait to watch the movie Hercules. Going to see my babe on the big screen this weekend! *happy dance*

  2. Congratulations, Erin! Love your blog!
