The Liebster Blog Award #2

A couple of months ago, Ashely @ Ashley's Paranormal Book Blog  was kind enough to nominate me for the Liebster Blog Award. The award is designed to give smaller blogs some love and attention, and to be nominated for a second time is an honour!

These are the rules:
  • Post 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by whoever nominated you.
  • Ask 11 new questions to 9 bloggers with less than 200 followers. You cannot re-nominate the blog that nominated you.
  • Go to their blog and tell them that they have been nominated!
11 Facts About Me
1) I love playing and watching tennis. Roger Federer is my favourite player!
2) I'm sort of allergic to mushrooms.
3) I live on a farm.
4) I'm double jointed in my elbows.
5) My last holiday was to Rome and Sorrento. I desperately want to see the rest of Italy now.
6) I have a weird phobia of odd numbers.
7) I once met Richard Osman from Pointless and he told me I was cute.
8) I can remember lyrics to songs from ten years ago but I forget what I did last week. 
9) 'I'll Make a Man Out of You' from Mulan is my favourite Disney song.
10) I saw the film version of Mamma Mia five times in the cinema. Yeah...
11) Captain America is my favourite superhero.

11 Questions from Ashley
1) When did you start blogging? I started blogging in December last year. Since graduating from university with my English Lit degree I had kept a book full of thoughts on the books I was reading (once a critical reader always a critical reader!) and decided that a blog was the perfect way of voicing my ideas. 

2) If there was a zombie apocalypse and you could only choose one weapon, and that weapon is whatever is directly to the right of you, what would it be? The TV remote haha!

3) Favorite paranormal movie? Paranormal stuff really isn't my thing, so I guess Casper the Friendly Ghost is about my level!

4.) If you could choose any supernatural power, what would it be? It's a toss up between mind-reading and time travel, but I think mind-reading would be the most useful!

5) What's your preferred genre? Definitely Romance. I can persevere with most genres of books if there's a romantic theme in there somewhere!

6) Top 3 authors and books? I don't have any absolute favourite books, but three of my favourites picked at random are Lords of the White Castle by Elizabeth Chadwick, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. 

7) Long walks on the trail or playing in the rain? I'm one of those weird people who LOVES rain. Not drizzle but proper, heavy summer rain. I've been known to run outside and dance about in it! I get really excited during thunderstorms too!

8.) What book would you absolutely have to make into movie? This is a no-brainer for me. I finished The Illusionists by Rosie Thomas a couple of months ago and since then have pretty much cast it in my head. Incredible book too!

9) How long have you been a blogger? I've been a book blogger for almost eight months. I've had a tumblr blog for at least three years but re-blogging photos of cats isn't quite the same thing!

10) How many posts have you made to date? This is my one hundred and fifteenth post. Wow that's more than I thought!

11) What's your least favourite music? There's no genre that I specifically hate, but I'm not a fan of rap music or really heavy metal. Lyrics are the most important part of a song for me, and so if you can't hear them properly, what's the point?

11 Questions from me
1) What got you into blogging in the first place?
2) What's your favourite book and why?
3) What was the last film you saw at the cinema and what did you think of it?
4) Do you have a favourite song?
5) If you could live in any fictional world (i.e. Narnia) where would you choose?
6) Who would your dream fictional husband/wife be?
7) Do you have a favourite cartoon character?
8) Do you prefer eBooks or physical ones? Which do you read most often?
9) What's your favourite TV show?
10) Why did you choose your blog name? Is there a story behind it?
11) In the film of your life, who would play you? And what would you call it?

  1. Yay! That is an Amazing Post! I'm so glad I could give you that honour! Have a great day!

    1. Thanks, and thanks again for nominating me! :)

  2. Thank you so much for nominating me; that means a lot :) I liked Jane Eyre, and I think it's awesome that you live in a farm! I mean, compared to the city it's really peaceful and quiet :) Interesting answers!

    1. It's really great, I love the city too but I'll always be a country girl at heart :)

  3. Congrats on being nominated twice. You know, I've never seen Mamma Mia, maybe one day!

    1. Definitely worth a watch, my sister and I are at the stage where we can pretty much quote the entire film now.. very cheesy but I love it :)

  4. "Be a man! We must be swift as the coarsing river. With all the force of a great typhoon. With all the strenght of a raging fire. Mysterious as the dark side of the mooooooooooon." It is my favorite Disney song too :). It drives my bf crazy at times ;).

    1. Haha I know the feeling! It came on while we were in the Disney Store once, safe to say I got pretty excited and my boyfriend pretty much disowned me :P

  5. Thanks for nominating me! This is actually my second nomination as well, I just never made the post. I guess I should get on that. Lol. Thanks again!
