Liebster Award | 4

I’m back with another Liebster Award! Being nominated for these kinds of awards and tags is always such a pleasant surprise and brightens my day considerably. Thanks so much to May @ Forever and Everly for nominating me!!

  • Thank the person(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions they gave you.
  • Nominate 11 blogs and let them know they’ve been tagged.
  • Give them 11 questions to answer.

If you were to stop blogging, what would be the reason?

Probably a lack of time. This happens to me sometimes when classes are in session because I go into total homework mode and basically lose all free time. Fortunately in the past I’ve been able to schedule enough posts in advance to avoid stopping blogging altogether during the semester, but a lack of time to blog is always a concern of mine. I miss it so much when I can’t do it often!

What are some hobbies you have?

Writing, taking bookstagram pictures, hiking, crafting, journaling, knitting, tap dancing… the list goes on!

Would you rather be dead or die? (Yes, there’s a difference.)

Hmmm… this is a difficult question! I think I’m going to say that I would rather be dead because I feel like the experience of dying could potentially be very painful and scary. Although neither of these is a preferred option!!

Do you like mangoes???

Not particularly. I would eat them if someone offered them to me, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to seek them out.

What book would you not feel guilty about stomping on, tearing, and burning in a fire?

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. I loved The Maze Runner (the first book in this trilogy) but this second installment took the series in a disappointing direction. The story had so much potential but I can’t help feeling as though this sequel squandered it all by resorting to a bizarre, confusing, and unoriginal explanation for the mystery set up in the first book.

What blogs do you ALWAYS look forward to reading? (Or, if you’re afraid your dear readers might feel bad: What type of blogs do you tend to follow? ie. book blogs, lifestyle blogs, writing blogs, etc.)

I always look forward to reading posts by Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books. I’ve been following her blog forever and she writes such thought-provoking, interesting, creative discussion posts. She’s also just a really kind and thoughtful individual in general. Definitely check out her blog if you haven’t already!! ❤

What’s one moment in your life you’d choose to play over and over again (aka re-experience over and over again?)

I would definitely choose to relive the moment I learned that I got accepted to study abroad at Oxford for a year. I was sitting in the dining hall at school eating lunch with some friends when I first read the email with the good news and it was such an incredible moment. ❤

You have the choice of reading a book you HATE, every single day, or reading one good book per year. Which do you choose?

Oooh, this is a tough one! Although I would hate to read a book I dislike every single day, I think I would really miss the act of reading on a regular basis. On the other hand, I’d much rather read a book that I actually enjoy. So… I think I would rather read one good book per year.

What’s one food you will never get tired of eating??? (ONE food, people, ONE.)

My mom’s homemade granola. I have eaten this granola almost every day for breakfast for YEARS and I still love it. It’s so delicious!

What would you do if someone walked up to you and gave you 100 bucks?

Thank them immensely and then rush to the nearest bookstore.

How are you right now? ❤

So swell!!

Since I love May’s questions so much I’m going to pass them along to these bloggers as well!

What are your answers to these questions? What do you think of mine? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. Tooootally feel the same about the Scorch Trials. I really enjoyed the premise of the first book and was so disappointed with the direction the series went in.

  2. OH, Holly, reading this made me so happy ❤ Thank you so much for thinking about me, I'm so happy you like my posts so much! Also reading this, I tried to recall when I first started following you, but I can't seem to remember either. It feels like forever, and it's been so great to always read your blog posts and getting to know you ❤
    I bet the moment you heard about Oxford must have been pretty crazy and unforgettable – I am so impatient for you to get on this adventure! 🙂 And…I'd do the same if I had 100 bucks ahah 🙂
