Liebster Award #5

Woo! Hoo! Hello Guys!!!

This is another Liebster Award and I was nominated by Analee from Book Snacks. She is one of the nicest bloggers and I highly recommend her blog. She posts book reviews and other fun book stuff. Go check her out! This Liebster Award is a bit different to the normal one. I’ll be answering 11 questions, sharing 11 facts and I’ll be nominating and writing 11 even questions for 11 other bloggers! For this award I nominate anyone who want to do this award.

  1. What is your favourite book-to-film adaptation OR what is a book/series you would like to see as a movie?
    I loved The Fault In Our Stars because I think it really stayed true the book and I loved Vampire Academy! I think if you loved the Vampire Academy series you would love the movie but if you haven’t read it the movie won’t be as appealing.
  2. If you could jump into any bookish world, where would it be? Why?
    This is a really hard question because I think about it all the time but every time I have a different answer. Lately, I have been thinking about the Shadowhunter-world  and I think that it would be a great bookish world to jump into. Who wouldn’t want to be a Shadowhunter?:)
  3. Who is your favourite author and why? (You can name more than one if you want.)
    I don’t really have a specific favorite author but I love Jennifer L. Armentrout books, so i guess you could say she is my favorite. I love her storylines as they are cheesy yet action-filled and witty. Cassandra Clare is also high up on my list of favorite authors as I love any of the Shadowhunter Chronicle novels, which were one of the first Young-Adult novels which I have read.
  4. What is your most prized book?
    I like to think that all of my books are prized possessions but one of my most special novels on my bookshelf is definitely Percy Jackson and The Greek Gods. The cover is so beautifully designed and it’s hardback. It is no surprise that it is one of my most prized books.
  5. What character from a book would you like to meet, and why?
    This is a really hard question… but if I could meet a character I think meeting Daemon (Lux Saga) would be amazing but I would love to meet Patch (Hush Hush Saga) and Will (The Infernal Devices). If I ever got to meet them I would probably faint! 🙂
  6. What is/are your favourite quote(s)?
    I actually have a post about this here! But I am planning on writing an updated one of these posts because I love quotes. My all time favorite quotes are:
    ” There is plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes, if you wish to look for it, ” ~Cassandra Clare
    “Thomas Edison’s last words were, “It’s very beautiful over there,” I don’t know where there is but I believe it’s somewhere and I hope it’s beautiful” ~ John Green
  7. What quality do you appreciate in a character?
    Persistence, loyalty, courage and confidence. I believe these are really important qualities in life and I love it when characters are so brave, persistent and confidence. For example, Rose(Vampire Academy) who I really look up to is so brave no matter what even if her loved ones are evil, she would do whatever she can to save them.
  8. What are three books you can’t live without?
    This is another tricky questions because I love so many books but I think three books I couldn’t live without are Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare, Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Mark of Athena by Rick Riodan.
  9. What places would you like to visit and why?
    I think I have answered a question like this before but I would love to backpack around Europe. This has always been my dream. I want to backpack with someone all around Europe without a particular destination, to just wander the streets of London, swim in the seas of Greece and eat authentic Italian food.
  10. Who is someone you consider a hero?
    There are many young-adult heroines who I consider as a hero. Tris Prior (Divergent) is someone I really look up to because of her selflessness. I want to be as loyal as she is to her family and friends. Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy) is someone I have considered a series since I’ve read the series because I love how feminine yet strong she is. She isn’t a really unfeminine heroine but she is still capable of so many things. Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson) is someone I have always respected since I read the series when I was really young.
  11. What do you think are your best qualities?
    Ummmm 🙂 I think one of my best qualities is my positivity and kindness. I have grown up in an era where teenagers are really submerged in positive things (tumblr and youtube) and I have always tried to make light of dark situations. I always want to help people because I think a small smile can light someone’s day so I always try to be happy because it really rubs off on people.

My Eleven Questions:
1) What is a novel you recommend to people who are not into young-adult novels?
2) Who is an evil character you somehow love?
3) What is a novel you thought you would hate but ended up loving?
4) What is an overhyped novel you do not like?
5) If you could live the life of a character for a day, who would you chose?
6) What is your favorite contemporary novel?
7) What is your most anticipated novel of 2015?
8) Do you prefer bookstores or libraries?
9) What are you currently reading and what do you plan on reading next?
10) What is an object you need by your side when you are reading?

That’s all for this award and as I said before I nominate anyone who wants to do this award! Thank you!


Liebster Award- #2

Hey guys! So I was nominated for another Liebster Award, by Bridget from Bridget’s Bookish Blog, so thank you to her. So this award is where I answer 11 questions written by Bridget and then I make 11 other questions up and nominate other bloggers.

I have already done this before, which you can click here to read, but since this is a different set of questions I decided to do it again.

1. What is your absolute favorite thing about reading?
I love reading so much and there are so many different things I love about it. I love staying up til midnight to read on and on and on. I love the feeling I get when there are cute OTP moments, plot twists, heart-wrenching romances, the lovable character and inspirational quotes. There is so much to love about it but if I had to chose my two absolute favorite things it would be the twisty plot lines of the books and the lovable characters, like Will Herondale and so many more.

2. Do you read books that are considered “classics”? (For ex:Romeo & Juliet, Jane Eyre, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Gatsby,etc.) Why/why not?
I do not really read classics, but this Christmas holiday I am planning on reading one or two. When I was younger I tried reading an abridged version of Pride and Prejudice but I hated it because it didn’t really appeal to me, but after reading the Infernal Devices and reading Will and Tessa talk about all those classics I’ve started to look more positively at them. So, I am currently reading these short stories about Christmas writen by Louisa May Alcott and I will be reading Emma by Jane Austen and A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens!

3. Do you have an all time favorite author? Who & why?
I do not really have an all time favorite author, for me it’s more of an all time favorite book series. However, I love Michelle Hodkin’s, John Green’s and Rainbow Rowell’s writing and storylines. I like Cassandra Clare’s, Richelle Mead’s, Rick Riodan’s and Jennifer L. Armentrout’s series.

4. Do you like to reread books? Why/why not?
Depends on the series. There are some books that I wish I could erase my memory and read that book so it is just as fun but there are some book where I could read over and over again and never get sick of it and of course there are some books that I love but I couldn’t read it again. For example, I would read Lux and Percy Jackson over and over again, I would read Vampire Academy again- if I could erase my memory but I couldn’t read The Mortal Instruments again even though I love it. I often pick up books in my bookshelf and flip through the book and re-read my favorite parts again.

5.How many books do you think you own? Or do you like checking them out from the library better–if yes, why?
I own about 50 books but I borrow a lot from the library because it’s cheaper. If I had a choice I would clean out one of my rooms to build a library and I would buy every single book I’ve read, so I can pick it up and re-read my favorite parts. If I like the book but I borrowed it from the library, then I buy the book so I can keep a copy on my shelf.

6. What’s your favorite childhood book? Why?
Does Percy Jackson count as a childhood book because I grew up with that series and I love it so much. But in terms of really young children’s books I would probably choose the Baby Sitter’s Club comics and The Magic Tree House series.

7. Do you like to write books or do you only like to read them?
I absolutely dread creative writing but sometimes I feel inspired to write so I write but I tend to write descriptions of places or objects not really a whole story. On the other hand, I love to read books instead!

8. If you could be any character in any book who would you be and why?
I had a similar question in my previous award questionnaire but if I could be any character in a book I would chose to be Rose Hathaway because I respect her and I look up to her because of her bravery and personality.

9.What’s the most books you’ve read in a year? (don’t keep track for that long? then how about in one week/month?)
I don’t really keep track but I think I read the most books this year with a total of about 100+ (thanks to goodreads).

10. What is a book you’ve read that you would recommend everyone should read?
I have recommended Lux to a lot of my friends but they never end up reading it and I highly recommend it. In terms of contemporary novels, I always recommend Eleanor and Park and Looking for Alaska.

11. Do you like book-to-movie adaptations? Why/why not?
Depends on the book, usually us fangirls and bookboys get so excited to see our favorite books on the big screen but when we watch the movie it tends to be a lot worse than what we expected. For example, Percy Jackson- I literally wanted to cry when I watched the movie it ruined one of my favorite books but if you look at Catching Fire it is an exact copy of the book and turned out amazing. One of the next major book-to-movie adaptations that is coming out is Insurgent, which I am very excited about. The trailer is coming out and I am screaming my head off.

So that’s all the questions I have to answer and now here are eleven short questions for those I nominate:
1. Three books you are looking forward to in 2015?
2. What are you currently reading and do you like the book?
3. Favorite OTP?
4. What made you start a blog?
5. Have you ever been to a book signing or a book expo?
6. Who is your fictional boyfriend?
7. How many books have you read this year?
8. What’s your book habit (ex. always reading with a cup of coffee) ?
9. What book is on the top of your TBR List?
10. Favorite song right now?
11. For the New Year’s Spirit: What is your New Year’s resolution?
