Liebster Award (5)

Ladies and Gentlemen, it looks like The Hardcover Lover is starting September off with a bang! Why's that? I've been nominated for a seventh Liebster Award.

I really can't thank you enough. And I mean all seven of you who nominated me. I never thought I'd get so much recognition in such a short amount of time.

Liebster Award Number Seven is all because of Nikki at Love at First Write. Okay... can we all just take a moment to let that blog name sink in. Okay... It's adorable!

Anyway. Thank you very much, Nikki. I am very grateful that you nominated me.

Answer's to Nikki's Questions:

  1. Q: Favorite Book Format?
    A: Oh. Just one. Hmmm. This is a hard one because I like so many different types of books, and because I'm not exactly sure if this question is referring to point of view, genre, or binding. I'll just give an answer for all of them just to make sure. I really enjoy omniscient books like the Harry Potter series or The Lunar Chronicles. There's just something about reading the book from an all-knowing point of view that drives me wildly insane... but in a very good way. My favorite genre is YA, and I enjoy many of the YA sub-genres. And for binding... Well you should all know the answer to that one. It's in my blog's name.
  2. Q: Why did you start this Blog?
    A: I really missed blogging, and I just love books. I wanted to take my love of writing and reading to a new level. I also wanted to share my thoughts with the world.
  3. Q: Favorite Childhood Book?
    A: A Little Princess
  4. Q:Four Top books on you To-Read list?
    A: Lola and the Boy Next Door, Isla and the Happily Ever After, Open Road Summer, and Emma
  5. Q: What do you think is your most under-appreciated post?
    A: Right now... I'm going to go with my meme, Soundtrack Saturday. I was hoping it would get a little more love on its launch day, but there's always next Saturday. You can find the information for it here if I've piqued your interest.
  6. Q: Who is your favorite author and why?
    A: I have a lot of favorite authors, but I'm going to go with J.K. Rowling. Here's why: About two years ago, I was a very lost young adult. I had no friends. I had just graduated from college, and I couldn't even afford to get my teaching certificate to sub. While I worked at a pizza shop one night a week to earn the money, I started reading the Harry Potter books. Suddenly, I wasn't so lost anymore, and I redeemed myself for being too cool to finish Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone when I was eleven. I could have grown up with Harry, Ron, and Hermione, but I found them when I needed them most. Because of that, Rowling is my favorite. She gave me hope when I thought that it was lost.
  7. Q: Most prized book that you own?
    A: My autographed copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower
  8. Q: If you had a magic lamp, what would you wish for?
    A: Leather bound copies of all the classic books, a beautiful cottage, and lifetime season tickets for my favorite hockey team
  9. Q: Describe your blog with a phrase.
    A: The Hardcover Lover is like no other.
  10. Q: Favorite season?
    A: Winter. I love cold and snow.
  11. Q:Share your favorite quote.
    A: I answered this the other day, too, but I love this quote so much.
    “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.”


  1. I definitely love omniscient books more than others as well. That way, if the main character is annoying at least I don't have to hear their voice all the time :P
    I've got my Soundtrack Saturday post all written and ready for this week :) I'm sure this meme will pick up since it's so original. Congratulations on all the Liebster nominations - you deserve them!

    1. OMG. I love that there is another person out there who loves omniscient too. I was starting to feel like one of very, very few. They are just so interesting. And I also feel like they are the ones that best translate to film.

      And yay! I'm coming up with my answers for my Soundtrack Saturday in my head. I can't wait to see your post! :)

      Thank you! That means so much! You're very kind, Sabrina! :D

    2. Me too! Yeah they definitely make better movies - maybe because they don't have to get into the character's head so much, if you know what I mean?

      Awesome, I'm excited to post it! :)

      You're welcome!

    3. Probably. And because all the information in already there. They don't have to make up a random scene just to give a character more screen time or something.

  2. Congrats!!! :) I found your blog on the Blogger Lift Goodreads Group, and I love it, especially the name! The Hardcover Lover! It just has such a ring to it! I'm following now! ;)

    Check out my giveaway for Frostbitten, a YA Paranormal-

    1. Oh. Thank you! :)

      I love that group. I've discovered so many good blogs because of it.

      I just followed on Google+. I'm heading over to your BlogLovin profile right now! :)
