Before I begin a four day spree of Liebster Award mania, I want to explain a few matters. First, every Liebster nomination will have it’s own blog post and nominees. I am doing separate nominees for each Liebster post, because I want to make sure more people get the exposure they deserve. Since, there are so many little bloggers out there, I had a hard time limiting the list to 11.
Instead of coming up with a ridiculous amount of questions all nominees will be using the same 11 questions. Ok, everyone cool. Let’s do this! I promise to answer every question as honestly as I could without the least bit of sarcasm.
I started blogging to document my reading habits as I attempted to finish the BookRiot and PopSugar reading challenges like a virtual book diary to savor for later.
Paperbacks and hardbacks. Reading e-books for a long period of time hurts my eyes.
I lean more towards the historical fiction genre. Typically, I gravitate more towards other genres that are historical fiction plus something (usually romance or YA). This year, I’ve been branching out and appreciating YA, nonfiction memoirs or collections of essays.
Thinking about this question is tough, but I’m going to answer Ray Bradbury as my final answer.
It wasn’t a book per say, but a story. As a child, my favorite story was “Maid Maleen.”
Winnie the Pooh series. The closest relative I will have to a niece or nephew for at least the next decade I will have to say is my cousin’s child and future children. Knowing my cousin’s daughter very well from experience, if the book is too big, she’ll slap it out of my hand and say “book too big, no read.” The books in the Winnie the Pooh series are on the thinner side, and also a nice break away from the Dr. Seuss books my cousin keeps forcing her to read.
My own children will be reading classic novels like Middlemarch by second grade
Another tough question, ok, I’m going to answer it as if I was still a strange middle school girl and say Sirius Black from the Harry Potter series. For some reason, according to my dream journal, I had multiple dreams of making out with him on the back of a motorcycle. I don’t know why, but I think I had an overactive imagination for an 11 year old.
The best adaptation would be most of the Harry Potter film series and Austenland (I never read this book, but I love the movie). I felt for the most part the Harry Potter film series stayed true to the books
The Cat in the Hat movie. I still have nightmares of Mike Meyers smiling cat face.
Right now, I’m diggin’ 30 Rock. Thanks to the power of Netflix, I can do binge watching splurges.
I don’t want to be partial to one book in particular, but I’m going to go with Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
