The Liebster Award // Learn some more about me!

Hi all!

Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m very excited to be answering some questions about being nominated for The Liebster Award by the one and only Saima @Storieswithsaima! Be sure to check out her post!

Saima’s Questions

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

If I could have any superpower, I would probably choose teleportation. When people go traveling, they either travel by cars, planes, boats, trains, etc. These vehicles produce lots of Carbon Dioxide emissions which isn’t great for the environment. If I were able to teleport, I wouldn’t contribute to the rising greenhouse gases emissions.

If everyone were able to teleport, then the amount of Carbon Dioxide emissions would decrease, and people would rely on teleportation more since it would be a quicker mode of transportation.

What fictional character(s) would you love to hang out with?

Libby Rhodes, from the Atlas Six. We are very similar, like how we both struggle with anxiety. We would become friends very easily, and relate to one another. Devon Richards, from Ace of Spades. He seems like such a nice person and a fun person to hang out with.

I’m sure there is more, but I can’t think of anyone else right now

What is your favourite book cover?

This one is a challenging question to answer for sure. There are so many books with such beautiful covers, which are so hard to choose from. If I could only pick one, I would say Small Favors by Erin A. Craig. The only thing is that I’m not the biggest fear of bees but seeing the elements of nature looks so stunning.

What is your favourite thing in your wardrobe at the moment?

An oversized graph T-shirt that has a colorful graphic of the Joshua Tree National Park. I’ve always been drawn to graphic T-shirts because they are comfortable and have stylish graphic designs. It fits my style perfectly since I like vintage-type clothing.

Are you good at guessing plot twists?

Somewhat…I guess. Honestly, the only time I can guess plot twists is if clues are placed through the story. I can pick up on them but sometimes when I try to guess I’m way off. I’m 50-50 at it.

What are your current favourite artists and songs?

I do not have a favorite artist. The only exception would be Olivia Rodrigo since her songs are very catchy and somewhat relatable. My favorite songs of hers would be Good 4 U and Jealously, Jealously. I tend to listen to lo-fi music (which does not have words). 

Do you prefer series or standalones?

Series. They allow the characters to grow and develop over a longer time. I always enjoy reading character arcs over a long period because you feel like you growing along with them. You can also focus on different side plots and explore more of the world.

In a standalone, you have less time to go into more depth into the story, worlds, and characters. It’s harder to do in a standalone since you only have a limited amount of time unless you make the book very long.

What’s a hobby you loved as a child?

Reading. I did not do many other hobbies besides reading. It’s always been the go-to thing I did as a child.

Favourite and least favourite subjects in school?

Favorite – Psychology + Biology

Least Favorite – Math, but only when I cannot do it correctly

Are there any tv/movie adaptations of books that you enjoyed?

The Hunger Games. I always felt that movie was the most accurate to the book. I have to watch the Shadow and Bone TV show. I know…I still haven’t watched it. I want to reread Shadow and Bone before I jump into the show. I promise I’m going to watch it and am excited to start it soon!

What is the best book you’ve read this year?

A tough question. I’ve decided I’m not going to tell you. You’re going to have to wait till the end of the year! 

11 random facts about me:

  1. I have been playing the clarinet for 8 years
  2. I’m a huge marvel fan
  3. My favorite TV show is The Umbrella Academy. It would have been Game of Thrones but the last two seasons disappointed me tremendously
  4. I’m super afraid of bugs, especially bees
  5. I’m currently working on my translating skills of Latin
  6. I only like drinking water. I don’t like the taste of any other drink
  7. I like taking long walks around my neighborhood to clear my head
  8. I have over 100 books on my bookshelf and I need another one to fit them all…I have a serious problem haha
  9. My favorite number is 6
  10. I have always wanted to take a trip to France and see all the famous monuments
  11. I have never slept past 8:00 AM in the morning

My Questions:

  1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
  2. If you could study any language, which would you choose?
  3. Favorite and Least Favorite reading genre?
  4. What has blogging made you realize about yourself?
  5. Do you have a pre game ritual before a tests, interviews, games, etc?
  6. Where do you like to read? Can you read with noise in the background?
  7. Have you tried writing a novel before? Are you currently writing one?

  1. Congrats on the Liebster Award! And hey Devon from Ace of Spades is an absolute sweetheart, I loved his character and would protect him from EVERYTHING if I could. I love the cover of Small Favors too! It’s been on my radar since it got released back in July.
