The Liebster Award Tag!

The Liebster Award Tag!
Hello there, readers!
Today I have the Liebster award tag for you! I’ve
actually done this one already twice, here and here, but seeing as the
questions are always different I will answer them regardless. I was nominated by the wonderful girls @
My Addiction: Books.
The Rules!
Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
Answer the 11 questions asked
Nominate at least 3 bloggers.
Ask them 11 new questions
Here come the questions!
Have you ever read
a book that changed your life or deeply affected you? Which book?
Hm, this is a difficult question. I think Out of My Mind
by Sharon M Draper really made me understand some more physical disabilities
and the difficulty of living with one. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini was
another one I couldn’t stop thinking about days after I’d finished it, which
rarely happens to me.
If you had to give
up all your books except for one, which one would you pick?
This is a mean question! I would keep Plague by Michael
Grant. It’s all lies. I would hide my stash and pretended that I only had
one.


How long does it
take you to write a review?
Twenty minutes at a max! I already have all the notes of
things I need to mention, and I am a pretty fast typer, so once I start I
finish pretty soon afterwards as well.
What is your least
favorite book and why?
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I have no idea how some people can love this
book. So many things were wrong with it!
*goes off into rant mode*
Firstly, why on earth tell a love story from the point of
view of the maid? Did she just happen to know everything about their love life?
Isn’t that weird? And also, why did the author reuse the names! I was so
confused by the first Catherine, the second one and don’t get me started on the
other names that were repeated… so confusing. Lastly, I felt like the romance
issue wasn’t an issue but that she made it out to be one! Couldn’t she have
simply been like, oh, we come from different backgrounds but I don’t care and
then be done with it all? If she decided she didn’t want him, then it’s her
problem and she should deal with it. That girl really wasn’t one to go against
conformity…
In a perfect
world, what mistake would authors avoid?
There would be no such thing as insta love. Please. No
more.
What book
character can you most relate to and why?
I think it would be Summer from Summer’s Dream by Cathy
Cassidy. Summer is a perfectionist, and really wants to be the best at
everything she does. Which is why she sometimes puts herself under unnecessary
amounts of pressure and says yes to doing everything. I can be like that a bit
too!
What are your
favorite and least favorite genres?
Favourite genre would have to be YA and fantasy, seeing
as it is what I read the most of. Least favourite would be non-fiction. Mostly
I find it boring, but I have been reading more biographies and actually liking them lately, so…
What is your
favorite part of blogging?
I love everything about blogging! But my favourite would
be putting my own posts out there because I really feel like this blog is my
piece of internet and I can do whatever I want with it! What falls under that
is going to see what other people call their pieces of internet and reading it
too.
Do you prefer a
female or male POV?
I don’t mind really, as long as the story is written
well!
What’s your
biggest book-related pet peeve?
I wouldn’t say it was my biggest, but one thing I have
noticed is that I really don’t like it when the font is horrible. It’s really
off putting and seems mean to my eyes!
That’s all! Here are my eleven questions (yes, I stole
some)
1.     
Do you prefer a male or female character POV?
2.     
What is your favourite and least favourite thing
about blogging?
3.     
If there was one author you could meet, who
would it be?
4.     
How do you choose what you are going to read next?
5.     
What is one thing you can’t stand in a romance?
6.     
What’s your favourite song?
7.     
Which blogger would you consider to be your
closest friend?
8.     
Why did you start blogging?
9.     
What is your favourite social media site to use?
10.  
Which country/fictional world would you visit if
you could?
11.  
Which book would you like to toss into the
flames?

Amber @ Du Livre
Olivia’s Question: Which book would you like to toss into
the flames?

  • I know what you mean. Those two words are the best way to describe it!

    I am glad I'm not alone with my dislike there. I thought that was an unpopular opinion of mine but it seems like more people agree with me than I thought xD

  • The Kite Runner is definitely that type of book. Brilliant, but awful. I couldn't get it out of my head for ages afterward either.

    LOL! I can't stand Wuthering Heights either! I had to read it for uni and I was stunned that it's a classic. Its such poor quality =( Another fantasy fan, WHOOP. =] I must say, I am slowly drifting away from YA. Too many disappointments. Those were good questions. I've done the Liebster Award and read posts on it several dozen times, and the questions always seems to be uniquely interesting. Great post!

  • 20 minutes to write a review?! Girl, you are speedy! As for Wuthering Heights, I was going to read that a while back, but never got around to it. I was hoping it would be a good one! I'll probably still read it just to see what goes down.

  • INSTA-LOVE SHOULDN'T EXIST IN THIS WORLD. PERIOD. The main problem is that because it works in one book, then all authors decide to incorporate it into their stories and no, just no! I sometimes feel like they do so in order to avoid developing a relationship. If you do insta-love, then…. that part is done with. Both characters are in love and there is no need for dates and bla bla bla, you know? I hate it so much it hurts me!
    And I do understand why you disliked Wuthering Heights, but besides the narrator (which I agree was weird) and the reusing of names, I pretty much enjoyed how twisted the whole story is 🙂
    And I would toss the entire Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy into the flames. I would toss all editions of those books without remorse.

  • Oh how I hate non-fiction too! Partly because I need to be hooked by at least the first chapter otherwise I'll give up reading the book altogether. As for which book I'd throw into the flames, my choice has to be Fade by Lisa McMann. I'd throw the first book in that series in as well but I liked it just a tad bit better. Awesome post!!

  • Wuthering Heights wasn't the worst book I've ever read, but it definitely had some characters that made me want to smh. Linton in particular… Like, if he hadn't died by the end of the book, I would have gone in there and strangled him myself. Also, I have to agree… insta-love is not a thing. *sighs*

  • Ooh, it may take me a min to actually do this one. Great Q&A! Have you read any more of Sharon Draper's books? I've not read Out of My Mind yet, but I have it on my shelf. I have a lot of her books on my shelf that I need to read!

    A book I'd like to toss? No offense to all who love this book/series, but Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl is a hot mess. I just did not like that book at all, so I didn't stick around to read the others. The movie is even more of a mess. Just no.

    • You should really read Out of My Mind! I can't wait to see what you will think of it. I haven't read any more of her books – but that is a yet! I hope I will at some point and very soon as well. I read the first book and it was only okay. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. It was okay…

  • Congrats on another nomination! I'll be repeating what's already been said but you and your amazing blog deserve every one <3
    Also I must say that I agree with you completely about Wuthering Heights – that damn book was torture to read. At school we spent weeks and weeks picking it apart for an exam and while I don't condone burning books, I already have a bonfire ready with it's name on it ahah. Insta-love can go right on top as well!
    Enchanted by YA

  • Great answers. I love blogging too, but every now and again, I feel pressured by it. That's when I have to slow down and put things in perspective. 🙂

  • I don't like bad fonts either, they make it really had for me to read the book. Yup, insta love needs to go!!!! I've never read Wuthering Heights, I kind of avoid the classics if I am being completely honest. I'd toss Allegiant in the flames, that book was awful from beginning to end.
