Hi everyone!

Welcome to my 4th Liebster Nomination! I can’t believe that I’ve been nominated 4 times! I love this award, because each time there are new questions to answer! Thanks to ma girl Aneta for the nomination!

liebster-award-rules (1)

1. What is your dream career?
I want to become an elementary school teacher! I am in English major, so of course I want to teach English/Literacy! I’ve wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in Grade 2, so I don’t think my dream will be changing any time soon, or ever!
2. Favourite place you’ve visited?
Walt Disney World!
3. Do you have a favourite blog?
Yes, although I love a ton of blogs! I love Alina, Amy, Ashley and Aneta! All A’s (btw PLL last night?!), haha!
4. What is your biggest fear?
I don’t really have a general biggest fear, but I have a few personal ones that no one no’s.
5. Favourite scary movie?
Hmmmm, probably My Daughter’s Secret. Although, it’s more of a weird murder mystery type.
6. Favourite book you would recommend to others?
Of course, The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer. Also, next July (2016) when the last one will come out, I will be doing an entire Land of Stories themed month!
7. Do you have a secret talent?
Well, many members of my family still don’t know I blog, so I guess blogging (does that count?)?
8. What is your biggest problem/challenge when it comes to blogging?
I used to be good at scheduling posts, but now I’m kind of slacking! BOO.
9. What book character best resembles you?
Alex from The Land of Stories. A book worm outcast. HAHA!
10. Any bad habits?
Not being social because- Reading/Blogging>People.- Oops!
11. What is the most watched movie/DVD in your collection?
I love Beauty and the Beast and The Hunger Games!

Those were all of the questions! Thanks again to Aneta for the nomination and non-complex questions!

I don’t have anyone to nominate, but feel free to answer the questions I have previously asked!

Good Night Book Owls!

Liebster Award #3!

Hi everyone!

Yes, my 3 liebster award nomantion! The 4 will be coming on Wednesday, haha!!

This time around I was nominated by the lovely Tori! I absolutley love all of the questions, since they are not bookish related, haha!


Award Rules:

  • Display the Liebster Award logo on your blog post (or blog if you want)
  • Thank and link the person who nominated you
  • Answer the questions given and then come up with 10 of your own to ask your nominations
  • Nominate and link to 8 or more more other blogs (try to make it people who haven’t yet been nominated)

1. Why did you create your blog? When did you start it?
I created my blog to share my love of reading (and the internet) to those who love it as well! I created my blog almost 2 years ago on December 8, 2013!
2. Other than reading, blogging, and watching tv, how do you fill your time?
I love to watch YouTube videos on my iPad mini, or make friendship bracelets in the summer time!
3. As pleased as you are about this nomination, do you wish I hadn’t nominated you? Go ahead. Be honest. This award is a lot of work.
Absolutely NOT! I love doing Liebster awards, as they differentiate every time you do them! People give you different questions then the last time you did it, which is really cool!
4. Has blogging created a community around you that you never expected? Or are you a [wo]man on an island surrounded by a sea of blog posts?
Absolutely, as you read this I am most likely at HCC’s “Frenzy Presents” (experience/recap post will be up on Tuesday), and I can’t believe that I will have the opportunity to meet a ton of other bloggers who do exactly what I do and love!
5. Can you list all 50 states alphabetically?
Nope. I’m from Canada.
6. My blog is directly related to my day job—what do you do for a living? Is it reflected in your blog?
I am a full time student (and Blogger and Reader of course)!
7. Quick decision: Friends or Seinfeld?
FRIENDS!
8. Are you a roadtripper? Do you use maps or just go where the road takes you? Where was your last adventure?
Not really, but I do love to explore around my city! I recently went to an event at the Pan Am Games, which was loads of fun!
9. How do you spend your Sundays?
Pre-Scheduling the upcoming weeks’ blog posts!
10. Can you juggle?
NOPEEEEE!
11. What is the one saying your grandparents always said that stuck with you?

“Don’t Say that!” (In Yiddish)


So, that was it for the 3 Liebster Nomination!

I seriously have nobody to nominate and have no questions to ask… OOPS!

Thanks again for the nomination, Tori!

Good Night Book Owls!

Liebster Award #2

Hi everyone!

Today, I’m sharing with you the 2 Liebster Award nomination post! Tomorrow, you will be seeing my 3 nomination post and next Wednesday you will be seeing my 4… oops!

This time around I was nominated by the lovely Sarah over at Written Word Worlds (try saying that 3 times fast!)!

Award Rules:

  • Display the Liebster Award logo on your blog post (or blog if you want)
  • Thank and link the person who nominated you
  • Answer the questions given and then come up with 10 of your own to ask your nominations
  • Nominate and link to 8 or more more other blogs (try to make it people who haven’t yet been nominated)

  1. What was the last YA contemporary you read?

    It feels like I haven’t read a contemporary book in forever! The last contemperary I read was Kissing in America by Margo Rabb, I sadly REALLY DIDN’T like this book.


  2. What book have you most recently stopped reading before you made it to the end and not bothered to pick it back up again?

    The second Harry Potter book… which I still haven’t finished…


  3. Which book do you connect with the most?

    Probably the entire Land of Stories series ’cause I love it!


  4. What book or series do you want to become a movie the most?

    The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer would be so cool in live action!


  5. What is the book or series that you’ve read the most times?

    The Land of Stories series, surprising right?!


  6. What is the book you’ve cried the most in?

    Allegiant by Veronica Roth… rrrrrr


  7. Do you have any books signed by the author and if so, what books are they?

    Only one: Enchantment Lake by Maggie Preus! I won this book from a giveaway and plan on reading it really soon!


  8. Have you ever met any authors?

    Sadly, no. But, hopefully tomorrow at Frenzy Presents I’ll be able to meet one!


  9. In your opinion, what is the most underrated or under-appreciated book or series?

    The Land of Stories is my favourite Middle Grade fantasy series, and I’ve heard NOBODY talk about it whether it be on booktube or the blogosphere! In my opinion, it definitely deserves it!

  10. What’s your thoughts on slightly damaged/visibly read books? Do you like your books to be in pristine condition or do you think books with dog-eared corners or bended spines feel more loved?

    I’d prefer them in perfect condition, but the books I bought on sale at my local library were damaged but I don’t seem to mind!


  11. What is the book you’ve been wanting to read for the longest amount of time but haven’t gotten around to reading yet?

    Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I started it the other day on my iPad Mini, but haven’t picked it up yet!


Thanks for the awesome questions and for tagging me, Sarah!

Now would be the time where I nominate 8 people, but all of my blog friends have already done this, so I’m going to tag people like how I normally would for Book Tags!

MY QUESTIONS:

What are you currently reading?
What is your favourite book?
Are you a fan of Suicide Books (ex. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher)?
Least favourite movie adaptation of a book?

The story of a blog-time…

On December 8, 2013, I was a little girl with a big passion for books and the internet. At the time, I really wanted to start filling my time with something I knew I would want to do for the rest of my life. I’d always wanted to make YouTube videos, but at the time my parents never let me, so I decided to create a blog. Some where where I could sit down and talk about books. Only people who had my passion of reading could see this, therefore I wouldn’t annoy others with my book blabbering, although I know people who follow my blog enjoy my blabbering (hehe). Reading, reading, READING was created and I still enjoy writing in this blog since then. I will never stop book blogging because I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!

Advice…

If you want to make a blog of any sorts, I did a little “Creating a Blog Series” and you can read all of the posts, here. My biggest tip of advice would be to ignore all of the negatives and not worry. There may be times when you may think “Nobody is going to read this, so why am I wasting my time?” First of all, if blogging about books is something you love, it’s definitely not a waste of time. Secondly, people are reading it, even if it’s just one person!


I nominate:

Aneta

Ashley

Cristian

Thistles and Whistles

Stephanie

Amy


I hope that you guys enjoyed this post! Thank you again Alina, for tagging me!
