The Liebster Blog Award

Very recently I was awarded the Liebster Blog Award by Sharon at: Fictionally Inclined. What is the Liebster Blog Award you might ask?

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word which means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. How sweet is that??
The Rules:
1. Each person must post 10 facts about themselves
2. Answer 10 questions the tagger has given you and give 10 questions for the people you’ve tagged.
3. Choose 10 people and link them in your post.
4. Tell them you’ve tagged them.
5. Remember, no tag backs.

Ten Random Facts About Me:
1. I have a dog named Riley Ann.
2. I secretly love Karaoke, even though I put up a big fuss about getting sucked in to sing a song with friends at the bar.
3. I love Captain and Lemonade.
4. I have a few penpals across the pond.
5. I love food.
6. I'd love to open up my own place maybe a bookstore/cafe/bakery with my bff, Laura.
7. I'm the most indecisive person and the most impatient person ever.
8. I used to be big into drawing and painting but I haven't done it in years and I miss it.
9. I'm an avid reader and writer.
10. I miss my dad more and more each day.

Questions from Sharon:
01. How long have you been blogging about books?
--- I have been book blogging since October of 2011. I love blogging within the book community. I just hope that things get better for me so that I can continue this and have it still be fun and enjoyable.

02. How did you get into book blogging?

--- I was just browsing through some of my friends on Goodreads and I came across this girls blog and I was reading her blog and got hooked on what she was doing and in October I was just like, "I wanna do this!" So, I did. :]

03. What are some of your favorite books/series?

06. If you could recommend one book to get a non-reader into your favorite genre (or one of your favorite genres), what book would you choose?

--- I'd have to say for paranormal Young Adult it'd be The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead but for New Adult I'd say The Jessica Darling Series by Megan McCafferty.

07. What is one pet peeve you have that grates your nerves when it appears in books?

--- Grammar mistakes and spelling errors, most definitely. Great question, by the way!

08. What is one plot device/trope/factor that pretty much guarantees you'll read a book if it's included?
