Before I begin a four day spree of Liebster Award mania, I want to explain a few matters. First, every Liebster nomination will have it's own blog post and nominees. I am doing separate nominees for each Liebster post, because I want to make sure more people get the exposure they deserve. Since, there are so many little bloggers out there, I had a hard time limiting the list to 11.

 Instead of coming up with a ridiculous amount of questions all nominees will be using the same 11 questions. Ok, everyone cool. Let's do this! I promise to answer every question as honestly as I could without the least bit of sarcasm.
For this post, I'd like to thank Tasheena at Dear Reader for starting the nomination spree for me. Also, make sure to check out her blog!
The rules for the Liebster Award:
1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Answer the 11 questions they gave you.
3 Nominate 11 blogs.
4 Give them 11 questions to answer.
My Questions: 


1 Why did you start blogging?


I started blogging to document my reading habits as I attempted to finish the BookRiot and PopSugar reading challenges like a virtual book diary to savor for later.
2 Paperbacks, Hardbacks, or E-books? (or all of the above?) 

Paperbacks and hardbacks. Reading e-books for a long period of time hurts my eyes.
3 What is your favorite genre of books (better than just picking one ;D)?

I lean more towards the historical fiction genre. Typically, I gravitate more towards other genres that are historical fiction plus something (usually romance or YA). This year, I've been branching out and appreciating YA, nonfiction memoirs or collections of essays.
4 What author do you think ‘changed the game’?

Thinking about this question is tough, but I'm going to answer Ray Bradbury as my final answer.
5 What was your favorite book as a child or one that meant a lot to you?

It wasn't a book per say, but a story. As a child, my favorite story was "Maid Maleen." 
6 What book are you excited to share with your present or future child/niece or nephew?

Winnie the Pooh series. The closest relative I will have to a niece or nephew for at least the next decade I will have to say is my cousin's child and future children. Knowing my cousin's daughter very well from experience, if the book is too big, she'll slap it out of my hand and say "book too big, no read." The books in the Winnie the Pooh series are on the thinner side, and also a nice break away from the Dr. Seuss books my cousin keeps forcing her to read.

My own children will be reading classic novels like Middlemarch by second grade
7 Which book character do you wish were real and you could meet?

Another tough question, ok, I'm going to answer it as if I was still a strange middle school girl and say Sirius Black from the Harry Potter series. For some reason, according to my dream journal, I had multiple dreams of making out with him on the back of a motorcycle. I don't know why, but I think I had an overactive imagination for an 11 year old.
8 What is your favorite book-to-movie adaptation?

The best adaptation would be most of the Harry Potter film series and Austenland (I never read this book, but I love the movie). I felt for the most part the Harry Potter film series stayed true to the books
9 What do you think is the worst book-to-movie adaptation?

The Cat in the Hat movie. I still have nightmares of Mike Meyers smiling cat face.
10 What TV show are you diggin’ right now?

Right now, I'm diggin' 30 Rock. Thanks to the power of Netflix, I can do binge watching splurges.
11 What’s your favorite book of 2017 so far?

I don't want to be partial to one book in particular, but I'm going to go with Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
