The Liebster Award

I was nominated for The Liebster Award by Sherry of BloggityBLOG.  Thank you so much Sherry for thinking of me and this was really fun!  I love answering questions so this was nice.  The rules are pretty much as follows:

1 - Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
2 - Answer the 10 questions given by the nominator.
3 - Nominate and link 10 bloggers (with less than 200 followers).
4 - Notify all the bloggers you've nominated.
5 - Create 10 new questions for your nominees to answer.

1.      What is your favorite type of music?
I listen to a lot of rock music.  My favorite band is Linkin Park.  I also love Three Days Grace, Seether, Papa Roach, Stone Sour and Evanescence. 
But at the same time I also love bands like Maroon 5, Paramore, and Fall Out Boy.

2.      If you were condemned to live off one food dish for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
I don’t think I could live without red meat so probably a burger.  There are many ways to eat a burger and endless toppings.

3.      Best plot twist you've read?
There are a lot of great plot twists.  But, I’m going to go back a ways and say Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas.  I read that a couple of years ago and boy, was I shocked at the time. 

4.      What are your top 3 books you want to read in 2015?
Winter by Marissa Meyer, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan, and The Rose Society by Marie Lu. 

5.      What is one book that has a significant impact on your life?
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, to pick just one.  I’ve always loved reading, but it was The Hunger Games that really got me into the YA genre.  It opened up whole new genres to me and helped shape who I am as a reader today.

6.      Best book villain?
A lot of people consider Warner from Shatter Me a “villain”.  I never saw him that way, but technically he’s considered a villain.  I don’t care about any of that.  I LOVE Warner and he’s one of my favorite male characters of all time.

7.      What would you do with a million dollars?
Well, the first thing I’d do is buy more books.  But, after that, I’d just put it in the bank and save it for later.  I’ll need it someday. 

8.      What drink would best describe you (alcoholic or not)?
Sweet Tea.  I love any kind of tea, especially if it has caffeine.  And my friend had to describe me for something the other day and said that I’m a “super sweet nice person”.  So I guess that fits.

9.      What would you say is your greatest fear in life?

My greatest fear is the fear that one day, physical books will no longer be printed or available.  Seriously :D 

10. Why is reading awesome? ;P

Because it lets you experience things beyond what you could ever do in real life.  Through books you have access to and infinite number of worlds and stories.  It lets you escape and immerse yourself into a completely different place and time.  It teaches you things and helps you to grow as a person. 

Those are all my answers, thank you again, Sherry!

So, for this I had to come up with 10 questions of my own to pass onto the people I will be nominating.  Here are my questions: 

If you could only ever read books from ONE genre, which genre would it be?
If you could change places with one fictional character for a day, who would it be?
What is your biggest bookish pet peeve?
Who is your favorite fictional couple?
Favorite series of all time?
Is there a particular book that got you into blogging?
If you could meet any author, who would it be?  And what would you say?
What other things (except for reading) do you like to do?
What is your favorite type of music and who are your favorite bands/artists?
What books are you most looking forward to reading for the rest of 2015?
And I’ll be nominating the following people:
Alejandra from Alejandra’s Musings
Nicola from Nicola Reads YA
Caroline from Stardust and Words
Tiffany from The Bookish Thought 

I love all of your blogs and I can't wait to see your answers!
