Blog Award Fifteen: The Liebster Award

I have been nominated for another blog award! This time it was the Liebster award by The Welsh Librarian. So, the rules:

1. Thank and link to the blogger that nominated you (DONE).

2. Write 11 random facts about yourself.

3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger that nominated you has asked you.

4. Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to complete the award. Then ask them 11 questions!

Firstly, since this will be my fifteenth award, I ‘m running out of facts to say! Therefore, sorry but I’ll give that section a miss – I can’t think of anything to say!

However, I will answer the 11 questions!

1. What are your obsessions apart from books?
Writing, music and social media.

2. List your top 5 authors.
In order…
1. Stieg Larsson
2. Mark Haddon
3. Derek Landy
4. Robert Muchamore
5. Mitch Albom

3. A book that didn’t live up to the hype.
The Divergent series.

4. A book that exceeded the hype.
Hmm… Perhaps Gone Girl

5. A book you would love to see as a film.
I think a film adaptation of Skulduggery Pleasant would be awesome.

6. Something about you that no one else knows.
I can’t think of anything!

7. Favourite holiday read.
I haven’t read many books on holiday, but maybe Before I Go To Sleep?

8. Bookbridgr, Netgalley or Edelweiss?
I didn’t know what these were until I did a quick Google search. The answer is none, but if this is about review sites, I use GoodReads.

9. Would you write a book? If so what would it be about?
I already am (well, trying to)! It will be a crime fiction novel.

10. Favourite book cover/jacket?
It will have to be a series. The designs by Tom Percival for the Skulduggery Pleasant series are brilliant. The One Hundred Year Old Man… is a close second for it’s brilliant simplicity of a design.

11. Favourite translated novel?
I have only read two: The Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson (my favourite), but so far I am reading The Onr Hundred Year Old Man…, which is good.

So now I’ll nominate the 11! It appears as though searching for 11 bloggers I know have less than 200 followers may be difficult for me, so I’m going to scrap that part, and nominate 8 (sorry) bloggers regardless! These are:

1. Loving Life in Wellies
2. Time to See the Stars
3. Lolly Loves
4. Oh Leona
5. To Breathe is to Write
6. Jasmin Charlotte
7. Into the Bookcase
8. Not Wed or Dead

Congratulations on being nominated! My questions for you are:

1. Tea or coffee?
2. The one item you treasure the most?
3. A book that reminds you of somewhere, or someone?
4. Do you like reading in public, or completely private?
5. Favourite song to listen to?
6. Do you own any notebooks, or write it all on computer?
7. Where’s your favourite place in the world?
8. What’s a moment in your life that you’ll happily relive?
9. What is your favourite dish?
10. Name something you did recently that surprised you (not really a question, but oh well).
11. Do you have any pets?

Thanks again to The Welsh Librarian for nominating me, and congrats to all nominated!
