The Liebster Award

liebsteraward

Thank you to Jo at Jo’s Book Blog for nominating me for The Liebster Award!

The rules for this award are as follows:

  • Post the award on your blog
  • Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer the questions assigned to you
  • Give 10 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate 10 deserving bloggers for the award
  • Ask 10 questions of your nominees

The questions assigned to me were:

  1. What are you currently reading? – I am reading Joe Hill’s latest novel, The Firemen.
  2. Starter and main, or main and dessert? – Would have to be main and dessert, I have a sweet tooth!
  3. What was your favourite subject at school? – I most enjoyed English Literature as I loved discovering and writing about books.
  4. What was the last album you bought? – I don’t buy many albums these days but I have pre-ordered Ellipsis, the forthcoming album from Biffy Clyro who I love!
  5. What is your favourite film/TV adaptation of a novel? – As a huge Harry Potter fan I would have to say the Harry Potter series. I loved watching Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone to see the wizarding world brought to life on screen for the first time.
  6. If you could choose a superhero power, what would it be? – The ability to fly would be amazing, but if there was a superpower where you could turn back or pause time that would be the best – would certainly help with the TBR!
  7. What book to be published in the second half of 2016 are you most looking forward to? – I am really looking forward to reading To the Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey. I loved her first novel The Snow Child so have high hopes for this one.
  8. Beach holiday or city break? – I prefer going on a city break, I love exploring new cities.
  9. Hobbies, other than reading? – I am an ice hockey fan so that takes up a lot of my time from September through to April.
  10. What was the last book you bought? – I bought two new books yesterday which I am very excited about – The Muse by Jessie Burton and Smoke by Dan Vyleta.

Here are 10 random facts about me:

  1. As mentioned above I am an ice hockey fan supporting both Nottingham Panthers and Great Britain and I have attended hockey games in nine different countries.
  2. My favourite food is pizza despite refusing to eat it as a child.
  3. One of my favourite films is Hot Fuzz which I can practically recite word for word and I once got starstruck meeting one of its stars, Nick Frost.
  4. I am unbeaten at Scrabble.
  5. I love birds of prey and once considered taking a course to become a falconer.
  6. The three top countries on my list of places I would love to visit are Iceland, Canada and the USA.
  7. My most eventful day spent during a holiday included spotting dolphins in the wild before being pushed down a hill in a wicker basket (an actual tourist activity in Madeira!)
  8. My favourite colour is purple
  9. I once finished runner-up in a ladies mini golf competition.
  10. I work in finance and have an accounting qualification, but my dream would be to work in publishing.

  1. Thanks for the nomination, second one in a few days as I was also nominated by Jo. I did the liebster award near the start of June though but it was from a writer and was for the Poetry I write so I may get round to yours and Jo’s nomination, another 10 facts about me maybe hard to think off though! 😊 But it’s always nice to be nominated so thankyou.

    Great answers, pizza is awesome! How are you finding The Fireman?

    Do I take it your from around the East Midlands as you support the Panthers? 😊

    1. Yes it is, sounds strange doesn’t it?! You take a cable car to the top of the hill and two men dressed like gondoliers run down the hill with you to the town at the bottom. It was a method traditionally used to transport food but has become a tourist attraction!
