I was just nominated for the Liebster award by the wonderful Noelia over at A Day In Bookland. Thanky you so so much!!! I'm going to love you forever!!! :P Anyways, this award is all for the new bloggers and the bloggers that have less than 200 followers so that us new bloggers can get out there in the blogging world.

  5. Ask the bloggers you nominate 11 questions, dun dun dun...
  6. And finally let them know you nominated them!!
Here we go!!!

Noelia's Questions For Me:

1.      Explain the meaning behind your blog name:
Well, my blog name. Ammm I just made it up on the spot cause ya, I'm bad with names. Really bad with names. But on the other hand, I kind of wanted to link it with my Goodreads group which is YA Book Gang!! is any ya'll want to go check it out. Okay, I admit it, they don't link up...

2.      If you could travel through time, which period of time would you go?
This is a tough one! I'm stuck on whether I should visit the past or the future. Nope, I'm going for the future, future like thousands of years from now, just to see all the difference and to be like "Well, in my day...."

3.      What got you into reading?
Don't hate me!! I went to see the Twilight movie, a few weeks after it came out and I loved it and then I found it was a book and my mam and dad got me the books. And that was what started my whole bookaholic phase. Granted it took 12 year old me a year to read those four books, but I did it!! Then I came home one evening from school and City of Bones and City of Ashes were sitting on my bed!! This was well before the craze started. I even went to a Cassandra Clare signing a few years ago and she commented on how I had the old book covers and I was like "Ya, I got these books when they came out, back in 2008." All thanks to my mam and dad!!!
And here is a picture in case you don't believe me!! :P

4.      If you had to re-read a book for the rest of your live, which one would you pick?
I can't answer that!! Ok, one book for the rest of my life. Clockwork Angel, I couldn't live without Will. Imagine never reading about Will again!!

5.      Besides reading, what other hobbies do you have?
Besides reading, my other passion is Photography. I love it so much!!! I'm a nature, wildlife photography person and I could spend hours outside taking photos and I mean hours, in any weather...

6.      Do you like to listen to music while reading? Or maybe have a snack?
None, music and food are both great distractions when reading.

7.      Physical books or e-books? Why?
Physical books, all the way!! There is nothing better than holding a physical book in your hands and flipping through the pages. Anyway you can't show off your collection then. It's like oh come here, look at my books and it's just a screen, where as you come in to my room and I say oh come here, look at my books, you're eyes are mystified by over 150 magnificently, beautiful books. 

8.      If you could create the perfect group of friends choosing fictional characters, which ones would you choose? Why?
I like my small groups so this is going to be a small list. Perhaps consisting more of guys than girls. Anyway, first off William Herondale from The Infernal Devices (could he be my boyfriend???), then Rudy from The Book Thief, The Darkling from Shadow and Bone, Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy, Cassie from The 5th Wave,  Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone and finally Em/Marina from All Our Yesterdays. I went with more girls because well I don't want to be listing out my fictional boyfriends do I??

9.      Have you ever disliked an author, or rather his/her books, which everyone seems to love?
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck. I've just read it recently and it bored me so much. Kelsey was annoying. The writing style did not suit me. Everything was predictable. And it took a lot of pages for such little to happen...

10.  If you could be a fictional character, in which genre would you like your story to happen? Why?
Dystopian. So cool, you would never know what type of situation you'd be landed in to.

11.   (At this point I was completely out of ideas, so maybe this last question could be lame… this is so hard!) Last one: if you are given the opportunity to re-write the ending of a book, would you do it?
No, I wouldn't do it. End of.

  6. I just got a kitten 2 months ago. That brings my number of pets to 7. I love her, she's an adorable little black kitty but plenty of attitude, but loving too .
  7. Why is it 11 random facts D: - I think my favourite season is Winter. I love the snow, and the fresh coldness of the air and it is a great time to take pictures.
