Liebster Awards 2016

So, I was tagged to do this cool little thing by http://reviewingdreamer.blogspot.co.uk/ and http://swissbookworm.blogspot.ch/ I want to say a big thank you to those two cool beans (and that you should all check them out)

Swissbookworm:

1. Which book inspires you?
I'll Give you The Sun by Jandy Nelson inspired me to create or change something.

2. What book have you thrown (or felt like throwing) against a wall because of the ending?
 I'm pretty sure I threw 'My Sister Lives on The Mantelpiece' onto the floor once, and then proceeded to cry for the next hour. Good times.

3. Do you have an author whose books you have all in possession just because they're his/hers?
I'm currently trying to collect of Michael Grant's books and Sir Arthur Conan Doyles', because Sherlock is just the best thing.

4. Who's your favourite book couple/relationship?
Simon and Baz, no one else can compete with these two. I may love them slightly too much...

5. Do you ever skip a few pages if a book bores you and then continue reading?
All the time when I'm reading for my English class, you would all get it if you had to read Tess of the d'Urbervilles too (she's just a whiny milkmaid and good god I just want to slap her).

6. What is your worst imagination of destroying a book (by accident)?
Dropping it in the bath, that would just crush me. I always feel a little bit adventurous and brave when I read in the bath, I really like to live life on the edge (as you can tell)

7. Do you dislike a popular book that everybody else seems to love?
'The Seletion' by Kiera Cass, this book was just one big giant nope for me. It's too predictable and the love triangle was just poor - just no, it's just a no. Also, does no one else find America super annoying? Like seriously, have you heard her?

8. What kind of bookish bad habits do you have?
I turn the corner of pages to make dog ears, I know it's bad but I can't stop. 


9. Who do you consider your favourite author?
Oh my god how am I meant to pick, there are too many. My favourites include Jesse Andrews, Sally Green, Michael Grant and Patrick Ness - you just have to love these guys, and if you don't get off my blog - just kidding, please stay. 

10. Series or Stand Alone?
Series, always a series. 

11. Who's your favourite book heroe/heroine?
Does Nimona count? I feel like Nimona should count in this even if she's technically kinda a little bit of a villain, if you've read Nimona you'd get just how amazing, funny and sarky she really is. If Nimona doesn't count it has to be Lyra from Phillip Pullman's 'His Dark Instruments' series - that kid is a little badass.


Reviewing Dreamer:

1. Right twix or left twix? 
Left twix, duh, next question.

2. Fictional crush?
Oh my god who do I pick? Baz has got to be in the top ten guys, I mean, Baz is just... ugh (if you can' tell, I'm kinda in love). But, if I couldn't have Baz it would be Will Herondale (so stereotypical of me I know, but guys, it's Will).

3. Fictional foe?
Dolores Umbridge - I would burn that witch.

4. A guilty read: something you know you shouldn't have liked but you still did?
I feel like I shouldn't have liked The Paper Magician because of how stupid Ceony is - but I still loved it.

5. Your hobbies, apart from blogging?
Anything to do with books, baking, and netball. The list ins't very long - I'm a bit lazy.

6. Your favourite binge worthy TV series?
Either Attack on Titan (you've got love a bit of cleaning Levi) or The 100 (I still need to watch season two)

7. Your favourite book from when you were 5?      
If I remember correctly I think it was The  English Roses by Madonna, a weird choose I know. but the illustrations in that book were beautiful.                                                                                                                            8. Your inspiration from the fictional world?                                                                                                                 I'll Give You The Sun inspires me due to the message it contains, but the Harry Potter series has always inspired me to keep going, because nothing can be as bad as having Umbridge as a teacher.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
9. Why do you continue to make the effort to blog, when you could be doing other stuff?
Because I have no one to talk about my love of books with, and I enjoy putting all my thoughts on things out there.
 
10. Describe yourself in ten words?
A little bit loud and just a little bit annoying.

11. Favourite number and why?
3, I just like the way it looks.
My Questions:

1. Have you read any Shakespeare? And if so, what is your favourite?
2. The best book you've read in the last twelve months?
3. Do you have a reading playlist you listen to whilst reading?
4. Do you drink coffee or tea whilst you're reading, and if not, why?
5.  Where's your go-to reading place?
6. Do you have any signed copies of books?
7.  The worst book you've ever read or couldn't even finish?
8. Are your family into reading as well or are you alone in your obsession?
9. How many books do you currently own?
10. The last book you bought, and why did you buy it?
11. Your favourite type of cookie? (This is the most important question, answer it wisely)
