I am happy to announce I was nominated for the Liebster Award? I would like to thank Nadwa@ Painfully Fictional for nominating me! She has amazing book reviews and tags; please go check her out!
The rules are:
Thank the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they’ve written for you.
Nominate 11 people and give them 11 different questions to answer.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
What was the first book series you’ve ever read?
Are you asking about in recent memory, like back in third grade or something? Because I can’t remember…probably the Junie B. Jones series, although it made me uncomfortable. I read that in kindergarten.
What’s your favorite genre?
Anyone who knows me knows this, but: mystery/psychological/thriller. Or a blending of any of those.
Do you read classics? If not, do you ever plan to?
Well, I sorta have to read them for school… I don’t like many of them, but one of the very few I actually enjoyed was Rebecca. I didn’t like the first sixty pages, but after that, it became kind of twisted. What does that say about me, that I only enjoyed this when it got all disturbing and strange?
Are there any other avid readers in your family?
Sort of. Both my parents used to love to read, but are too busy to really read anymore. But they do read Webton s in their spare time, haha. 😂
Your (current) OTP?
How do I just choose one? And what qualifies as OTP? I have several ships, but I dunno if they’re OTPs. I’ll just put in two of the most recent ships and two friendships I’ve discovered that I like.
Ships: I love the love triangle in The Infernal Devices, but since I can’t choose which ship I like more, I’ll go with a side pairing: Charlotte and Henry. And another recent ship would be Kaneki and Touka from Tokyo Ghoul.
Friendships: Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes, A Study in Charlotte. And of course, Will and Jem from the The Jnfernal Devices.
What’s your favorite quote?
Hmm… I’ll have a humorous quote and inspirational quote.
Inspirational quote: “When everything is over, when the worst has happened, there’s still one thing left in Pandora’s Box: hope.” (Root, Person of Interest)
Funny quote: “When the director explained the character to me, I thought of you, professor. The psychiatrist in the film is a cold hearted jerk.” (Anna, Dr. Frost)
What’s a book you’d really like to see turned into a movie?
Uh…I was doing some thinking, and I was thinking that maybe book to TV shows would work better with the book format. But if I had to choose for a movie, I’d say either The Infernal Devices or the Stoker and Holmes series.
Who’s your auto-buy author?
I dunno. I don’t think I have one.
What popular book do you just hate?
I don’t think I have one! Well, if I had to choose, I suppose the original Alice in Wonderland. It just felt like a random jumble of words put together into semi coherent sentences.
How many books did you read in 2016?
I have no idea. Too many to think of.
Do you read Wattpad stories? If yes, which one’s your favorite?
I have a Wattpad account, where I write my stories. My user name is KDreader02. My stories are The Girl in the Locked Room (mystery) and 9-L (science fiction). However, I don’t get to read or work on there often, but so far, I love Confessions About Colton. It’s very interesting and smart.

If you’ve already done this award, you don’t have to do this. No hard feelings! (Well, maybe a little…) I’m joking, I’m joking!
