Hi everyone! My awesome friend Michelle over at FirstBookLove nominated me a while back for the Liebster Award. She’s an amazing blogger and such a sweetheart so don’t forget to check out her beautiful blog.

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their post.

  • Nominate 11 other bloggers, with your own set of questions.
  • Tag your chosen 11 bloggers, and don’t forget to tell them as well!

Michelle’s Questions 

  1. Biggest Bookish pet peeve? People who borrow books and never give them back or take long to return them and when they do, there are stains, folded pages, or the books are in really bad shape.
  2. Favourite scent? I don’t really have a particular favorite scent, but I do like light floral ones. Nothing too overpowering cause I’m very sensitive.
  3. Favourite bookish item? I love bookish totes and candles.
  4. An author whom you would buy all their books? Just to name a few — Marie Lu, Tahereh Mafi, Marissa Meyer, Colleen Hoover, Kasie West, and
  5. Favourite place to read? I read pretty much anywhere and whenever, but my favorite place will always be in the comfort of my own bed.
  6. What are your other hobbies aside from reading? Does going to Disneyland count as a hobby?!?! LOL Anyway, I like to bake whenever I get the chance and being crafty.
  7. What was the deciding factor that made you want to start book blogging? Just wanted to talk about my favorite books and meet awesome people like you!
  8. What advice would you give to aspiring book bloggers? Remember to have fun with what you’re doing, be positive, spread the love, and meet as many amazing book bloggers.
  9. Read or write? Why? I would love to write a book someday, but I’m too much of a perfectionist and can never make it past the first few pages, so definitely read. I love discovering new worlds, making friends, and having as many book boyfriends as I want.
  10. Favourite fiction world? And why? Sooo many, but it always comes down to the Harry Potter Universe.
  11. Your all time favourite fictional character? I can’t pick just one… I have so many favorites for different reasons, but some faves are Linh Cinder, Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, Juliette Ferrars, and Adelina Amouteru,

Latanya’s Questions

Favorite Pizza Topping? I’m a meat kind of girl, so definitely pepperoni, sausage, and Canadian bacon.

If You Won a First-Class Plane Ticket, Where Would You Go? This one’s easy – Scotland. I’ve been obsessed with Scotland since finishing the Doon Series by Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp.

If You Could Have a Co-Author? There are sooo many amazing authors… how can I just pick one. I think at this moment I would pick Colleen Hoover. Hopeless is one of my favorite books and I love romance stories that has all the FEELS.

What’s Your Typical Saturday Like? Make breakfast for the fam, walk the dog, do laundry, organize my books, read a little, bookstagram, catch up on shows, walk the dog again, and spend time with my boyfriend.

For One Million Dollars, Would You Rather: Stick Your Hand in a Box of Snakes or Stick Your Hand in a Tub of Spiders? Definitely hand in a box of snakes. I’ve held a snake before and it wasn’t that bad, but spiders… NOOOO WAY!!! Even for a Billion of Dollars!
