Liebster Award


Awhile ago, on August 24th exactly, Felicia from A Silly's Girls Thoughts nominated me for a Liebster Award! Thank you Felicia!!! I had no idea what that was, so I googled it. Apparently, a Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers from bloggers. 

So, here are the rules:
  • Link and thank the person who nominated your blog
  • Answer the eleven questions they asked you
  • Pick eleven bloggers with less than two hundred followers to nominate
  • Ask them eleven questions
  • Let them know that you’ve nominated them by commenting on one of their posts

Okay, here it goes:
1. If you had to pick max three favorite books, what would it be?
     -Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas, and The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
2. If you had to pick max three of your least favorite books, what would it be?
     -Allegiant (Divergent Book #3) by Veronica Roth, Mockingjay (Hunger Games Book #3) by Suzanne Collins, and Lord of the Flies by William Golding
3. Do you ever read a book, not so much because you think you will like it, but because it's one of those books you feel like you have to read?
     -Yes. I have tried to read Moby Dick so many times because I think I should like it, but I don't. I don't like it. (Shhhh!!! Don't tell!)
4. What's your thought on audio books?
     -I have never listened to an audio book.
5. Do you re-read books?
     -I used to. I would re-read all my favorite books, but I don't have time now.
6. What's the best school-assigned book you've read?
     -It's been a long time, but I liked The Great Gatsby.
7. Are you the type to usually root for the hero or the villain?
     -Oh, the hero. For sure. 
8. What's the one thing you wish everyone knew?
     -I wish everyone knew the joy of reading.
9. If you had the power to fix one thing you think is wrong with the world, what would it be? (And if you can, what would you do?)
     -Wow. That's deep. Well, I think I'd make sure that every child in the world had food to eat and clean water to drink, and a safe, warm place to stay. (Oh, and I'd definitely make sure they could read!)
10. If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, fiction or real, who would it be?
     -I'd love to meet George Washington or Abraham Lincoln.
11. What got you into blogging?
     -I got tired of reading books full of profanity and other stuff I didn't want to read, and I wanted a place to go that would rate the books like movies are rated. I couldn't find it, so I created it.

Okay, I nominate:

Here are your questions:
1. What was your favorite childhood book?
2.  Have you read a book that has changed your attitude towards something?
3.  Why did you start blogging about books?
4.  How many books have you read so far this year?
5.  Who is your favorite character (out of all the books you've read)?
6.  Why do you like or relate to that character? What is it about them that you like?
7.  If you don't like a book do you finish it or stop reading?
8.  Do you like to watch movies made from books? Why or why not?
9.  Where is your favorite place to read?
10. If you could meet any character from any book, who would it be and why?
11. If you could jump into any story and live it, what story would you choose and why?

Thanks again for the nomination A Silly Girl's Thoughts!!!!

We seem to have opposite tastes in the classics! I thought The Count of Monte Cristo involved a bit too much rambling and I did not like The Great Gatsby when I read it in school. I'd like to go back to it though, because I think I'd appreciate it a lot more now! Moby Dick is one we agree on; I found it so hard to get into!

Thank you for the nomination :)

I would also like to read "The Great Gatsby" again. I definitely think my viewpoints will have changed since high school, so it would be interesting to reread it.

You're welcome!
