Liebster Blog Award (Again!)

I have been tagged for the Liebster Blog Award again by Sara over at Sara in Bookland!! I always secretly love to get tagged because I get to write about ridiculous things. Fun things. Things that you all probably could have gone your whole life without knowing and it wouldn't have affected your destiny in any way. At all.
For the Liebster Blog Award, I must answer 11 random questions from the blogger who tagged me, and pass on 11 random questions of my own to some more blogs that I will tag. If you get tagged, you don’t have to participate if you’d rather not. 
This is a game, not the 2012 Olympics, people.
But it’s really fun, so I would urge you to keep it going!

On to the questions!

Sweet or Savory?

Both. My favorite snack is French fries with chocolate ice cream. A perfect combination of salty goodness and sugary gluttony. I realize that sounds terrible, but hey. This is America. I eat what I want.
Yeah…moving on.

Who’s Your Book Boyfriend?

Muahaha. My book boyfriends tend to shift, but I will always love Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments, as well as Jem from The Infernal Devices. I also adore Four from Divergent, Kishan from Tiger’s Quest and Will from Angelfire.
Way more than one, I know.

What’s your favorite book ever (not of a series!)?

Quite possibly To Kill a Mockingbird. I absolutely adore that book. The Only Alien on the Planet, Journey to the Center of the Earth and The Secret Life of Bees run right behind that.

Beach or Mountain?

Mountain. I grew up near and around the mountains, and there are plenty of beaches within the mountains, too. There is absolutely nothing like the smell of fresh pine trees, the scent of wet dirt or the slight panic at seeing bear tracks on the trail. You can scratch that last part. You know what I mean.

Who’s your favorite author and why?

I don’t really know. My favorite YA author is Cassandra Clare – I think that woman is all kinds of genius. My favorite author outside of YA is probably Mark Twain. He’s a mastermind, I tell you!

What would you say if you got a chance to meet with him or her?

I would get down on my knees in front of Cassandra Clare and kiss her feet.
Okay, not really. I would probably thank her for giving millions of girls and woman alike all over the world Jace Wayland. She should get the Nobel Peace Prize or something. But if I were to meet Mark Twain…I’d probably ask him to adopt me as his godchild. I’d freak out. I love that man.

Why did you start blogging?

I had no purpose in life. HA. Just kidding. I wanted to create a platform for myself as a writer and explore the worlds of the many, many authors out there. It worked out pretty darn good. I’ve got an online business off the ground because of it, as well as extra employment and the publication of my first book.

What’s your favorite weekly meme?

My favorite is actually my own: Indie Monday. I get to meet a ton of awesome, creative peeps from all over the world.

Skirts or Pants?

PANTS. I don’t wear skirts. I haven’t really worn a skirt since I was seven years old. Even then I was more prone to wearing jeans and a tee-shirt so I could chase the dog around in the mud or declare war on the local community of wasps. If I find myself having to go to church with the family I will fight tooth and nail for wearing jeans.
(This is why I don’t get invited to weddings.)

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading many different books (I like to dabble. I’m a chronic dabbler.), but the main ones I’m reading right now are Wings of the Wicked, by Courtney Allison Moulton and What a Boy Wants, by Nyra Dawn. I love the Angelfire series but I don’t really like What a Boy Wants.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Obsessive compulsive reader. ;P

OKAY. That was interesting.
I tag the following bloggers for this meme:

Summer Day @ Pride and Princesses
Bridget Bowers @ Rants ‘N’ Rambings
Victoria @ Confessions of a Twenty Something Fiction Writer
Kris @ A Book From Snowy River
Kimberlee @ The Element Odysseys
Christine Benson @ Christine Benson

And that concludes my little list.
Here are the 11 random questions…..

  1. YA romance or Adult romance?
  2. If you could embody any single figure throughout history – from Marie Antoinette to Michael Jackson – who would it be?
  3. Do you play a musical instrument?
  4. Who is your favorite actor?
  5. What’s your favorite thrilling movie (think Die Hard or Mission Impossible)?
  6. Favorite uplifting, touching song?
  7. Modern or classical art?
  8. Do you prefer Kindle or “real” books?
  9. Cats or dogs?
  10. Disneyland or Universal Studios?
  11. Birthday or Christmas? * wink * 

There you go. Have fun, friends! 


  1. Ooh interesting questions! Thanks for the tag. Glad you agree on linger. I think I was being too nice even with my review,lol. I was never really excited at any point. What is the angelfire books?
    Oh and I love mark twain!! Love puddnhead wilson.

    I don't have Internet at home but I'll try jump on at some point somewhere tomorrow to answer these.

    Kris :)

    1. Haha, it's good to maintain a fairly positive balance when you review books you don't like, lol. For the author's sake, I guess. Although there are some books I have kind of ripped to shreds......*shrugs* I have to be honest! ;P
      Angelfire is a series of books written by Courtney Allison Moulton. I just finished the second installment (Wings of the Wicked) and it's just so well done. It has the common angels vs fallen angels theme, but it's told so cleverly (and with killer wit) that it's unique. (

    2. I am really excited to answer these questions! I will get them ready for tomorrow! What a cool idea. Question: Am I supposed to then tag others with new questions? Also,what is a meme? Haha.

    3. Awesome: I'll be on the lookout for your answers! Yes, you are supposed to tag 11 people (but I didn't tag that many because I like to keep things simpler). A meme is like an internet "game" that goes viral. For example, if an event by a blogger titled 'Sara's Sneakpeeks' begins to get copied by lots of other bloggers, it is then considered a meme. The Liebster is a meme because it gets passed around from blogger to blogger, and it never really ends. It's tonsa fun!

    4. I agree, I dont like to be too mean to a book... but when you really hate it, sometimes you let go and go write what you want,hehe. Ooh the book sounds cool, I just added it to my list and as soon as i finish this giant stack next to me I will get it. The work world and family visiting from abroad this summer has totally slowed me down. Thankfully I am guest free for the rest of the year now... i hope.
      Also, loving your new blog design!

  2. These are awesome answers to some fabulous questions. TY for TAGGING; Try to play re-tag soon summer:)dot dot dot...


Get fictional - it's fun! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon!
