The Liebster Award

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by Erin @ BookNut!

Anyway, here's how this works!

The rules accompanying this award are as following:

  • You must answer all the questions outlined for you
  • Mention and link back to the person who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 300 followers
  • Create 11 questions for them to answer
  • Comment and inform them of their nomination, along with a link to your very own post for further information


1. Who is your favorite book villain?
I do not have a favorite villain because I do not root for them to succeed. 

2. Why did you start your blog?
My English Class required a Blog on any topic of my choosing. I chose YA books as my topic and began to review for both class and publishers.

3. If you have ever met an author, who was your favorite?
I have met 278 authors and 215 of them were YA. I met Rae Carson the most (8 times) but I really enjoyed attending group seminars including bunch Kevin Emerson, Dan Krokos, and Andrew Fukuda from TBF 2013 and group Paolo Bacigalupi, Alex London, and Neal Shusterman from TBF 2014. And for females Meagan Spooner and Cecil Castellucci on sci-fi also at TBF 2014.

4. Have you or will you write a book of your own?
I would like to someday. I've just been writing here and there but nothing too serious. I'd probably write a contemporary  because it is my least favorite genre to read.

5. Which hyped books do you refuse to read? 
With hyped books, there's a chance I have already read the first one or finished the whole series. I at least read the book in every series, as long as it is YA.

6. What are your favorite blogs (they don't have to be under 200 followers)?

7. What is your favorite genre?
Young Adult with Vampires

8. Do you like movie adaptations? If so, which is your favorite?
I do like movie adaptations. Twilight and The Fault in Our Stars are my favorites.

9. What are your book pet peeves?
Cover and format changes

10. Do you use blogger programs like Blogging for Books or First to Read?
Yes, I am in multiple blogger programs including:

Blogging for Books
First-to-Read
Book Look Bloggers
LibraryThing
Book Crash
etc.

11. Do you have insta-buy authors? Who are they?
Sarah Rees Brennan, Melissa Landers, Robison Wells, Sarah Addison Allen, Jodi Picoult, Marie Lu, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Danielle Jensen.

  1. Yay, congrats on your award :) And you have completely made my day with the mention!

    I am totally with you on never wanting the villains to succeed. And YES for The Fault in Our Stars! I want to pre-order so, so badly (I may cave and do it still). And WOW to meeting 278 authors- my goodness! I have met... zero. Some day ;)
