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 of not really being eligible for this prize anymore. I was nominated by the wonderful girls @ My Addiction: Books. I was nominated by some other people too (thank you!) but I have opted to go with these questions.
Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you

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 Fear by Michael Grant.
It’s all lies. I would hide my stash and pretended that I only had
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 :3
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.
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!
