The Liebster Blog Award

I have just been nominated for a Liebster Blog Award by Tiffany @ Beneath the Jacket Reviews! The Award is designed as an opportunity for smaller blogs to get some love and recognition, and I was very happy to have been nominated – it really cheered me up at the end of a really bad day! Thanks so much to Tiffany for the nomination!


Here are the rules:

  • List 11 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 have weird eating habits. I do not like mixing foods at all.
  2. My star sign is cancer.
  3. I am extremely clumsy (I never seemed to outgrow having skinned knees).
  4. I love 80s teen movies.
  5. I had all my wisdom teeth by the age of 14. I got them removed at 19.
  6. I am a night owl. I can usually be found still sitting up into the wee hours with a book (or lately my kindle!) in my hands.
  7. I love buying scarves.
  8. I am petrified of daddy longlegs. I will literally run screaming from a room if there are any in there.
  9. I enjoy playing RPGs especially games like Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Fallout, and Skyrim. My blog name is actually derived from a character I played in my all-time favourite RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
  10. I read my favourite book The Lord of the Rings when I was 9 years old and it really shaped my reading preferences. Fantasy is still my go-to genre even though I enjoy reading many different types of books.
  11. I am a big fan of Tegan and Sara and have seen them 3 times in concert.


11 Questions from Tiffany:

  1. If you could be a book character, who would you be?
  2. Which country would you most like to visit?
  3. Is there a book you have read that you could not stand?
  4. What about blogging do you find the most challenging?
  5. Who is your favourite author?
  6. Favorite book character ever?
  7. Do you have any pets? If not, would you ever want one?
  8. What do you do in your spare time other than blogging?
  9. What is your favourite movie?
  10. When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?
  11. What is your current occupation?

My answers:

  1. I would really love to be Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. I love her – she is so smart and has a great group of friends.
  2. I have always wanted to go to Rome (Italy). Someday I might get there!
  3. I really didn’t like Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I was seduced by the really pretty cover but I really didn’t connect to the characters at all.
  4. I am starting to get more into the swing of it now, but I really used to struggle trying to post on a regular basis. Sometimes I just seem to be quite uninspired and that can be hard to shake when it gets a grip on you.
  5. I have so many but overall I would probably have to go with Robin Hobb.
  6. That’s an easy one – the Fool from Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings series.
  7. No pets unfortunately. I would love to have one but my fiancé is allergic to anything with fur so that rules out cats, dogs, rabbits – the cuddly ones basically. I am a little bit nervous of reptiles so that is a no-go and fish seem to be quite a lot of work.
  8. I am a total movie addict so I spend a lot of time going to the cinema. I am also a bit of a shopaholic (especially for books). I enjoy socialising with my friends but I also really just love getting cozied up in the house.
  9. I actually have two and it is so hard to choose so I am just going to list them both: Dead Poets Society and The Thing (the John Carpenter version).
  10. I had to deliver a presentation at work which was really nerve-racking for me because I am really shy and hate people looking at me. I was proud of myself that I managed to do it though.
  11. I work in Administration!


11 Questions from Me:

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What would your superhero power be?
  3. Who would you like to play you in a movie about your life?
  4. What is your favourite book?
  5. Who is your fictional hero?
  6. Who is your favourite band/singer?
  7. Have you ever done something really daring (like sky-diving, bungee-jumping etc.)?
  8. What is your favourite television series?
  9. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  10. What is your favourite colour?
  11. Do you have a celebrity crush?

  1. Yay! I’m glad that you enjoyed doing it! You’re welcome! :] I am glad that I am not the only one who is addicted to buying scarves and books, I have way too many of both, but still cannot stop. As for fish, they are a lot of work, definitely not worth it! I tried it once, did everything I was told to, and they still all died within two weeks, so upsetting!

    • It was a lot of fun! Lol me too – my books are totally taking over the house! I also love buying jewellery especially if it’s unusual or vintage. 🙂

      My cousin had tropical fish. She introduced a new one and it ate all the others. She couldn’t bear to have any more after that. Sorry about your fish – it seems to be really hard to keep them alive. 🙁
