[The Liebster Award is given from bloggers to bloggers and is all about celebrating new blogs and spreading the blog love. If you are nominated and choose to accept the award, the rules are below. ]

So I have received this award/nomination earlier this year (You can view my post here) I have recently received the nomination by two more bloggers Littleonionwrites and Books are Delicious ! So I have decided to do a mash up of both of the nominations and answer all the questions from both bloggers! They are both awesome and you should check them out! (P.S. this is a long one, kind of)

Now Littleonionwrites questions!

1. Do you have a certain way of arranging your bookshelves? Do you arrange them alphabetically, etc.?

Right now I don’t have real bookcases, so they are all just wherever they fit, but typically I have all books by the same author together and than just try to place them on the shelves to make them look good. (If that makes sense)

Book-wise: Guardian by Alex London

Other than that I graduated already this year so that was something that I was anticipating.

6. What is one book you are having trouble reading? What’s the longest amount of time it’s taken you to finish a book?

Anna Karenina- I have been working on reading this book for close to three years now. It is just a huge complex book and I haven’t had the time to dedicate to it.

One thought on “The Liebster Award [Round #2]

  1. I loved A Monster Calls and To Kill A Mockingbird! Excellent books 😀 And I’ve been taking trips down memory lane and listening to the Backstreet Boys, N*SYNC, and Britney Spears. I hadn’t realized I listened to much of these artists much until I recognized quite a few of their songs. Then I decided to compile a whole playlist of music I remember from when I was younger, haha.

    I was the opposite with my feelings toward Cinder and Angelfall—I liked Angelfall more than I’d expected, but I was disappointed with Cinder.

    Great post! I’m excited to check out your nominees’ blogs 😀
