Liebster Award

Hello lovelies! It’s been awhile. I have been nominated for the award by the wonder Holly of  Nutfreenerd. Thank you very much! I have already done this a few times so I’m not going to nominate more people but I’ll answer the questions!

  1. What author have you read the most books by? That would be a tie between JK Rowling and Cassandra Clare both at 7, I think.  Or Mary Pope Osborne who wrote the magic tree house children’s series. I read a lot of those. Are we counting children’s books? Because Dr. Seuss, Rhonald Dahl  and Robert Munsch were my childhood. I read pretty much everything they put out. One of those people.

  2. Where is your favorite place to read? I love reading outside on this little bench on my deck in the summer. In the winter it has to be in my bed in a blanket nest so it’s all warm.
  3. What is your favorite thing about blogging? Being able to get my thoughts out on books and hear what other people think about it.
  4. Coffee or tea? Coffee.
  5. Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate, always chocolate.
  6. If you had to choose only three books to bring with you to an empty island, which ones would they be? Why do you do this to me?! Oh gosh, ok: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke, Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, and A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. None of those are stand alones. Darn.
  7. Which fictional character from a book would you most like to date? William Herondale. Hands down.
  8. Who is your favorite actor? How about actress? Johnny Depp and Jennifer Lawrence.
  9. What is your favorite season?  Summer.
  10. Do you prefer to read paper books or electronic books on an ereader? Paper books!
  11. Which book do you think is the most underrated? I definitely answered this question in a book challenge and my answer was really long. You can go read that if you wish, (here), but to be short I had two books. One I wished more people would read, The Falconer’s Knot by Mary Hoffman, and one lots of people have read and lots of people love to hate though it doesn’t deserve all the bad things, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I have a long rant about the second part. You’re all freaking mindless sheep. Before it was decided it was cool to hate, everyone loved it. Stop. Form your own opinions, people! And the movie does not equal the book! 

That it all! Thanks again Holly! Concession session, I have not read any farther into Dreams of Gods and Monster, I don’t know when that’s going to get done but it will! Eventually! I can’t even say I’ve been really busy, I have been busy and a lot of stuff has been going on, but I have had time to read and I’ve just slept really.

Bye all! Kisses

Hello my darlings! Happy May! I myself am celebrating with a pajama day and hot tea as there is currently 40cm of snow on the ground and more falling. I bet some of you think I’m joking, but I’m really not.

In Books: 

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi ———————– 5
World After by Susan Ee ————————– 4.5
Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier —————– 3
Fracture Me (Novella) by Tahereh Mafi ——- N/A
I am half way through Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor and it is really good! But for the past week and a half I have just had no energy to read and DOGAM is one of those books that you cannot read if you aren’t 100% into it becasue it will be confusing and you won’t get as much out of it. Apart from DOGAM and World After which I technically bought in December/January thought they just arrived, I only bought one book. Entwined by Heather Dixon. I really love this book! I’m almost positive I have a book rant about it, I’ve read it a few times but I only just found myself a beautiful hardcover copy.

In Life:

I have been very busy this week. On Thursday I had tickets to the Alberta Ballet to see their new show “Class Acts” which is a tribute to the golden age of Hollywood. It was spectacular. I love the 40s/50s especially the entertainment side. The music was just better! People could really sing. Ella Fitzgerald is my jam right now.Yesterday I went to a party hosted by a friend of mine and I was supposed to head to another friend of mine’s girlfriend’s 18th birthday party after but the amount of snow canceled that. Which worked out becasue I’m not sure I would have had the energy for the second one anyway! Today I need to do homework but I haven’t. I was sleeping and watching TV. I’m an awful student most of the time. Tomorrow I go to visit my chemistry tutor and I am so lost again in that class! (probably due to the fact I am an awful student because of a fore mentioned reasons.)

Class registration of university started Thursday I spent 4 hours trying to get my schedule to work! I never thought it would be so difficult! My friends then pointed out that I had class solid from 11-3 and asked if I considered eating to be important. Oops. Lunch hadn’t even crossed my mind.

That’s all I can think of right now! Bye lovelies!
